The IARC unfairly disregarded two studies from Germany.

Monsanto, the seller of Glyphosate has claimed that evidence proving the product’s safety has been buried at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), according to Farmers Guardian.

POLITICO has seen the documents which are now part of an on-going legal case.

There are concerns circulating regarding the data, from Germany’s Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR).

The two pieces of data that found that the product is safe was ‘unfairly disregarded’ by International Agency for Research on Cancer.

POLITICO concluded that there is also concern about Helmut Greim drawing on tumour data from 14 carcinogenicity studies on rats.

A spokesperson for IARC denied to POLITICO that data was withheld from Jameson and said that all public data it receives is through electronic resources.

Glyphosate

Glyphosate generates in the regions of billions of dollars every year for the agrochemical company.

Debate was sparked regarding associated health concerns attached to the product use.

The World Health Organisation was left in hot water back in 2015 when they stated the product ‘is probably carcinogenic to humans’.

European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) are among the organisations that have said that the product is safe to use and is not a carcinogen.

Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum herbicide and the world's most widely-used spray.
