There was some evidence suggesting that people who used glyphosate in their jobs might have a higher rate of acute myeloid leukemia, but the numbers were too low to say for sure and the team said more study of that particular question would be needed.

About one-third of 16 samples made with organically grown oats also had glyphosate, all at levels well below EWG's health benchmark. Along with that, on December 18, the company even posted on their website a statement by the EPA, "The draft human health risk assessment concludes that glyphosate is not likely to be carcinogenic to humans".

"Over those four decades, researchers have conducted more than 800 scientific studies and reviews that prove glyphosate is safe for use". The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has researched this issue and has set rules that we follow as do farmers who grow crops including wheat and oats.
