In a joint letter to the EU Commission, EDC-Free campaign partners HEAL, Greenpeace, the Alliance for Cancer Prevention, Pesticide Action Network Europe (PAN-EU) as well as Friends of the Earth Europe (FoEE), have asked for an informed debate on the use and glyphosate in Europe.

The letter addresses concerns regarding the scope of the EU Commission’s request to the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) to investigate the carcinogenic potential of glyphosate.

Glyphosate is used in a large number of weedkillers. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified the substance as "probably carcinogenic to humans".
