To my knowledge there are dozens of well designed studies that say it's safe at the low doses that even farmers get, let alone anything else, and it degrades so quickly that there's nothing left to get anywhere near a consumer. The studies that say there's a risk are of dubious construction, refer to doses millions of times higher, or are generally meta-studies of bad design and conclusions. The junk science behind European bans is well known, but authorities like Health Canada which are not known for letting things get very far beyond super safe are perfectly fine with it and have reviewed it repeatedly.

But there's a lot of conspiracists here, so that doesn't play well.

There's also the "well, Monsanto is a multi-billion dollar company so they must be evil somehow", ignoring the fact that they had a lower market capitalization than Whole Foods Group when they were sold to Bayer.

Plus, I tell you right now if it weren't for glyphosate, we'd be using twice as much land and 3 times as much fuel to produce the same amount of food. So decide how much of the Amazon you want cut down for more farmland, and how much harder you want CO2 targets to be reached. Or how many more brown people you want dead, because starving kills much better than some imaginary effects of glyphosate.
