The Slip-and-Fall Flim-Flam, Roundup Edition

This comes as no surprise.

The EPA said on Thursday it finished a regulatory review that found glyphosate, the most widely used weed killer in the United States, is not a carcinogen and does not cause cancer.

The conclusion reaffirms the agency's stance on glyphosate, the key ingredient in Bayer AG's Roundup, despite judgments by U.S. juries that have found that use of the weedkiller was responsible for plaintiffs' cancer in some trials.

'EPA has concluded that there are no risks of concern to human health when glyphosate is used according to the label and that it is not a carcinogen,' the agency said in a statement....

Naturally, the Slip-and-Fall industry had a (very weak) response from their bought and paid-for "scientist":  ORANGE MAN BAD!!!

 'This administration's troubling allegiance to Bayer/Monsanto and the pesticide industry doesn't change the trove of peer-reviewed research by leading scientists finding troubling links between glyphosate and cancer,' said Lori Ann Burd, director of environmental health for the Center for Biological Diversity.
Yup.  It's Trump's fault.
