The health issues linked to glyphosate-based herbicides are crippling our US economy. Cancer alone is projected to cost Americans 158 billion by the year 2020 according to the NIH. With 1 out of 2 of our males and 1 of 3 females in America expected to get cancer in America today, the fact is we simply cannot afford to spray a probable carcinogen such as glyphosate on our food or in our public spaces. We urge the EPA to take precautions to protect the health and economy of the United States of America and to revoke the license of glyphosate completely.”
