Last week, the World Health Organization found that glyphosate, an ingredient commonly found in herbicides used in GMO crops, is “probably carcinogenic to humans.” Now is the time for the EPA to act on the findings.

In an attempt to avoid the government approval process, the chemical industry is now “editing” the genes of certain seeds. This loophole could lead to dire consequences for our land, water, and consumers.
