The Heartland Institute believes the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is playing politics with Roundup herbicide instead of looking at the science.

“A lot of positive news about Roundup is often overlooked,” Angela Logomasini, senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said. “European governments long ago determined Roundup is safe, and since the exposure rate in nearly all instances is so low, there is virtually no danger to humans."

The institute believes Roundup is very useful for farmers, that food would be more expensive without it, and that science is being trumped by politics.
