When something like the herbicide Glyphosate (Roundup) is labeled "probably causes cancer", what does this mean?
This question was prompted by Grist, who asked us: "Hey Risk Bites guy, the WHO just said that the herbicide in Roundup probably causes cancer -- what's the deal with that? It seems like every month we find out that something else is probably giving us cancer. Should we be worried?"
