Finally! WHO Acknowledges Round-Up Carcinogenic Risk

Round-Up has been studied for decades and the documented health risks have been denied and or trivialized. Finally, a sea change:
Bunge, Jacob (2015, March 21). Health Agency Finds Risk in Herbicide. The Wall Street Journal, B3. [Excerpted] Glyphosate, the herbicide widely marketed by Monsanto Co and other companies, likely has the potential to cause cancer in humans, a World Health Organization agency said Friday.

This should be emphasized to school children.
