Roundup linked to cancer, again

2015 Research

Roundup is used extensively in what is euphemistically called ‘Soy Republic’ an area of Latin America larger than California. 125 million acres of Brazil, Bolivia, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay are now contaminated and doctors in the region have noted alarming increases in cancer rates, so much so that they have formed an ‘action group’, named Doctors of Fumigated towns’ They even held an International Conference in Córdoba in 2010.
 
The Department of Medical Sciences of the National University at Córdoba sponsored the conference. An estimated 160 doctors from throughout the country attended.

Dr. Medardo Avila Vazquez, a pediatrician specializing in environmental health said afterwards, "The change in how agriculture is produced has brought, frankly, a change in the profile of diseases. We’ve gone from a pretty healthy population to one with a high rate of cancer, birth defects and illnesses seldom seen before. Cancer cases are multiplying as never before in areas with massive use of pesticides."
