This module will assemble the evidence proving this. Glyphosate’s two main cancer causing mechanisms are: It is an endocrine disruptor, and it causes gene and cell damage. Each of these causations will be the subject of its own module.
Here’s the science the IARC emphasized, building from its 2014 review which emphasized glyphosate as a potent cause of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) and B cell lymphoma.
*The IARC cites a series of epidemiological studies of farmers. The studies found a strong pattern of evidence that glyphosate causes NHL. These were a 2001 Canadian study, Swedish studies from 2002, this study also strongly linking glyphosate to hairy cell leukemia in addition to NHL, and 2008 (also a prior study from 1999 found the NHL link
