How can anyone dare to ask such a question when the media has solved the problem, informing that Monsanto has been ordered to pay $289 million to a gardener who has used this product and who has had cancer, lymphoma apparently?

The objective of this article is not to position itself on the prohibition or not of this herbicide, which is accused, it seems not without reason, of causing disturbances in the animal ecology (bees and fishes, for example, when it contaminates rivers), even if one can be worried, in the current state of the French agriculture, of a substitute product… The goal here is medical: this carcinogenic risk for the man is he proved?
