Five newly published papers warn that glyphosate 
or glyphosate-based herbicides may have harmful 
reproductive consequences. The new research on 
animals adds to concerns that glyphosate can 
interfere with fertility and disrupt normal reproductive functions.

EPA deletes director's name from comment about 
glyphosate cancer link: A public comment signed 
by a high-ranking public official warned of 
cancer links to glyphosate, but EPA removed his 
name and 
the comment "anonymous" after we called attention 
to it.  The comment attributed to Patrick 
Breysse, director of the National Center for 
Environmental Health and the Agency for Toxic 
Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), was 
filed with the 
in October 2019, stating that research supports a 
cancer connection to glyphosate but the EPA has 
been subjected to corporate influence:

"Numerous studies have linked its use to an 
increase in lymphomas, and it's time we stopped 
letting the chemical industry manipulate research 
to serve its own interest," Breysse said in the 
public comment filed with EPA. "U.S. citizens 
need to trust the Environmental Protection Agency 
to operate in our best interest, which means 
weighing evidence from neutral scientific sources not vested in the outcome."

Roundup trial update: Last week we reported that 
a federal judge had harsh words for Bayer AG's 
plan to delay potential future Roundup cancer 
lawsuits and block jury trials. Bayer has since 
backed away from the plan the judge had 
criticized as potentially unconstitutional. Read 
the latest in 
Gillam's Roundup Trial Tracker.

COVID-19 news: Jane Mayer reports in The New 
Yorker on the secretive titan behind one of 
America's largest poultry companies — one of 
President Trump's top donnors — who is ruthlessly 
leveraging the coronavirus crisis andd his vast 
fortune to strip workers of protections.  See 
also the 
in BMJ Evidence-Based Medicine by Maryanne Demasi 
arguing that a low carbohydrate diet could be 
part of the solution to the COVID-19 pandemic.
