EVSLIN: Are Roundup-like herbicides making us sick?
Roundup-like herbicides in our food and the environment are a growing concern for experts around the world. I’ve been writing about the possible toxicity of these chemicals for several years, resulting in an invitation to give a keynote address at the 2022 UN General Assembly Science Summit. As the research becomes more worrisome by the week, so too does the need for decisive action.

Thank you Dr. Evslin…. great article …..yes but very sad….. Westside Kauai folks know the harmful effects of pesticides… 3 young males died from Cancer prior to graduating with their class of 1999 at Waimea High School, so many families have so many stories of cancer in their family. Please continue your work to advocate for our Kauai families…
Ah…. so sad the State of Hawaii Dept. of Health and Dept. of Agriculture don’t talk about these concerns in our Life here of Kauai…. Please wake up State of Hawaii and County of Kauai and take steps to protect Kauai residents from these harmful toxins in our environment.
Dr. Evslin, Please provide references to the study’s you quote in the future. Might give you better credibility rather than using your MD as a calling card and spouting off scare rhetoric.
They found it in the urine, meaning, it was discarded by the body. You also don’t mention the method of detection, was it quantitative or qualitative? False positive results?
Did you know, organic farming still uses pesticides? Many of which are not regulated for quantities used and residues found in the products? But somehow organic is the magical answer to all the world’s problems. Wake up man.
Mark, using your logic, the appearance of cancer cells in the urine must mean that the cancer is being eliminated and will no longer be a threat. Wishful thinking of course. Since you apparently are not impressed with organic farming, perhaps it is you who should have his urine tested. It may change your mind. If Doctor Evslin were to list his sources, it would take a special issue of TGI to address them. I’m afraid it is you who should “wake up”.
