  1. I am glad LA has decided not to poison our parks with Round Up and hope it will become city wide before the lies are revealed when it is too late. The article goes back and forth with their convictions. It all depends on what study is being viewed. If it is independent, it will be found that Roundup does cause cancer. If it was an industry study by Monsanto or any of their lobbyists, which btw, now includes the EPA, the studies are not trustworthy. Monsanto is currently being sued as they lied about the cancer causing agents for years. It will be difficult for them to get out of this one as it is undeniably the cause of so many farmers who worked with the chemical who now have lymphoma.
