Epidemiologist John McLaughlin says Glysophate poses risks
Vani Hari is known online by her nickname, the "Food Babe" ....and to many, she's a trusted source of advice on healthy eating, food additives and the food industry.
But Joe Schwarcz says many self-proclaimed experts, including the Food Babe, aren't sufficiently grounded in science. Joe Schwarcz is the director of McGill University's Office of Science and Society.
Some of you took issue with some of what Joe Schwarcz had to say ... including his views about a herbicide called glyphosate.
John R. McLaughlin has looked at the research into glyphosate very closely. He is a Chief Science Officer and Senior Scientist with Public Health Ontario and a Professor of Epidemiology at The University of Toronto. John R. McLaughlin was also invited to be part of an expert panel that reviewed pesticides, including glyphosate for the International Agency for Research on Cancer, a branch of the World Health Organization.
