A month ago, we were speculating as to whether the few extra studies to which the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) had access but the WHO International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) did not were really able to account for their difference in opinion with regard to glyphosate’s carcinogenicity. We thought it unlikely.

This month, we consider whether or not EFSA’s argument that it is engaged in a different sort of project to IARC and it is therefore unfair to compare the two. You can read our thoughts on this defence here.
