According to an analysis released Friday by the Environmental Working Group, there are 247 elementary schools in the country within 1,000 feet of a corn or soy field—and nearly 500 that sit less than 200 feet from crops that are sprayed with glyphosate.

For the most part, the scientific understanding of ag chemicals’ effects on human health is based on scenarios where farmworkers are directly exposed to pesticides, herbicides, or other sprays directly.http://bit.ly/1QNUfPn

Key data outlining the toxicity of glyphosate (Roundup) was recently uncovered, revealing that Monsanto knew about the cancer-causing effects of its best-selling herbicide more than 35 years ago, as did the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and yet neither entity chose to make this information known in the interest of public health.

Both Monsanto and the EPA knew full well, at least as early as 1981, that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, causes cancer in mammals. Earlier studies conducted during the late 1970s and early 1980s appear to have documented cancer-causing effects from glyphosate in rats, mice and dogs, though this information was buried by Monsanto with the blessing of the EPA.
