IARC finds 2,4-D herbicide the same cancer hazard as coffee and aloe vera. What does ‘possibly’ or ‘probably’ causes cancer mean? There are five different types of classifications to which compounds can be assigned, including:
1. Carcinogenic to humans
2a.  Probably carcinogenic to humans
2b. Possibly carcinogenic to humans
3. Not classifiable as to carcinogenicity in humans
4. Probably not carcinogenic to humans

DYK there 400+ different herbicide-resistant weeds, and most have nothing to do with GE crops or related herbicides?
Or that there have, in fact, been a significant amount of long-term studies on GMOs?
Or that no GM crop commercially available today includes "animal DNA".
Find info to addressing claims about GMOs in Food Babe’s new book:
Earlier this year, Vani Hari, also known as Food Babe, published her book, The Food Babe Way: Break Free from the Hidden Toxins in Your Food and Lose Weight, Look Years Younger, and Get Healthy in Just 21 Days. In this post, we’ll explore several of the inaccurate claims made in the book related to GMOs and provide expert perspectives on these topics.
