Carrasco notes in his reply to Monsanto/Dow that
discussion of toxics risk assessment has separated
into two diverging strands:

Rather than pointing out shortcomings of our
research, the [Monsanto/Dow] letter illustrates
the increasing difculty in dialogues between
those with a vested interest in product sales and
independent researchers who wish simply to
understand whether the said products are safe.236

It is to be expected that industry should look after

its own interests. But it is inexcusable for the
public body BVL to follow Monsanto/Dow in what
seems to be a desperate attempt to dismiss any
possibility of Roundup/glyphosate’s teratogenicity
rather than ordering further investigations to
clear up uncertainties. However, the existing
body of evidence on Roundup/glyphosate is more
than sufcient to justify that BVL advise the EU
Commission to invoke the precautionary principle
and conduct an immediate review of the herbicide.
