Dow's Controversial 2,4-D Chemical Herbicide 'Possibly' Causes Cancer

Dow AgroSciences weed killer, 2,4-D, “possibly” causes cancer, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The chemical herbicide is widely used on American farmers. The 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid weed killer was recently reviewed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

The Dow weed killer, 2,4-D, has now been classified as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” by the IARC. The classification is just one step below the “probably carcinogenic” category. The findings of the WHO and IARC study have been highly anticipated by both American consumer groups and environmental activists that have been lobbying for far more stringent regulations relating to the chemical herbicide. Some farmers have defended the use of 2,4-D and claim that the weed killer created by the biotech giant is a necessary agent in food production.
