Testosterone is a crucial hormone for men and plays an important role throughout the male lifespan. Most of a male's testosterone is produced through the testicles. Also called the male sex hormone, testosterone starts playing its part during puberty.
When a male goes through puberty, testosterone helps males develop:
As boys turn to men and men grow older, testosterone levels deplete naturally. Sometimes, events like injuries and chronic health conditions like diabetes can lower testosterone levels. Unfortunately, when a man loses too much T, it results in hypogonadism. When this happens, the testosterone must be replaced, or the male will suffer from symptoms like muscle loss, low libido, and even depression.
TRT is exactly what it sounds like: a treatment option for men that replaces testosterone so that your body regulates hormones properly and restores balance to your life. Also called androgen replacement therapy, TRT alleviates the symptoms that men experience with low T.
Originally lab-synthesized in 1935, testosterone has grown in popularity since it was produced. Today, TRT and other testosterone treatments are among the most popular prescriptions in the U.S.
Without getting too deep into the science, TRT works by giving your body the essential testosterone it needs to function correctly. As the primary androgen for both males and females, testosterone impacts many of the body's natural processes â especially those needed for overall health. For example, men with low T are more prone to serious problems like cardiovascular disease and even type-2 diabetes.
When your body quits making enough testosterone, it causes your health to suffer until a solution is presented. That's where TRT and anti-aging medicine for men can help. TRT helps balance your hormones and replenish your depleted testosterone. With time, your body will begin to heal, and many symptoms like low libido and irritability begin to diminish.
For men, aging is the biggest contributor to lower testosterone levels, though there are other causes like obesity, drug abuse, testicular injuries, and certain prescribed medications. Sometimes, long-term health conditions like AIDS, cirrhosis of the liver, and kidney disease can lower testosterone levels.
When a man's testosterone levels drop significantly, it alters his body's ratio of estrogen and testosterone. Lower testosterone levels cause more abdominal fat, which in turn results in increased aromatase, which converts even more testosterone into estrogen.
If you're concerned that you might have low T, you're not alone. Millions of men in the U.S. feel the same way. The best way to find out if your testosterone is low is to get your levels tested.
For sustainable testosterone replacement therapy benefits, you must consult with hormone doctors and experts like those you can find at Global Life Rejuvenation. That way, you can find the root cause of your hormone problems, and our team can craft a personalized HRT plan tailored to your needs.
One of the most common reasons that men choose TRT is because they have lost that "spark" with their partner. It's not easy for a man to hear that they're not performing like they used to. Intimacy is a powerful part of any relationship. When a once-healthy sex life dwindles, it can cause serious relationship issues.
The good news is that low libido doesn't have to be a permanent problem. TRT and anti-aging medicines help revert hormone levels back into their normal range. When this happens, many men have a more enjoyable life full of intimacy and sex drive.
Weak erections â it's an uncomfortable subject for many men in the U.S. to talk about. It's even worse to experience first-hand. You're in the midst of an intimate moment, and you can't do your part. Despite being perfectly normal, many men put blame and shame upon themselves when they can't achieve an erection. And while the inability to perform sexually can be caused by poor diet, obesity, and chronic health conditions, low testosterone is often a contributing factor.
Fortunately, weak erections are a treatable condition. The best way to regain your confidence and ability in bed is to speak with your doctor. Once any underlying conditions are discovered, options like TRT may be the best course of treatment.
Do you find it harder and harder to work out and lift weights in the gym? Are you having problems lifting heavy items that you once had no problem lifting?
Recent studies show that when men are inactive, they lose .5% of muscle strength every year, from ages 25 to 60. After 60, muscle loss doubles every decade. While some muscle loss is common as men age, a significant portion can be tied to low testosterone levels. When a man's T levels drop, so does his muscle mass.
Testosterone is a much-needed component used in gaining and retaining muscle mass. That's why many doctors prescribe TRT Victory Gardens, NJ, for men having problems with strength. One recent study found that men who increased their testosterone levels using TRT gained as much as 2.5 pounds of muscle mass.
Whether your gym performance is lacking, or you can't lift heavy items like you used to, don't blame it all on age. You could be suffering from hypogonadism.
If you're like millions of other men in their late 20s and 30s, dealing with hair loss is a reality you don't want to face. Closely related to testosterone decline and hormone imbalances, hair loss is distressing for many men. This common symptom is often related to a derivative of testosterone called DHT. Excess amounts of DHT cause hair follicles to halt their production, causing follicles to die.
Because hair located at the front and crown is more sensitive to DHT, it grows slower than other follicles and eventually stops growing permanently. Thankfully, TRT and anti-aging treatments for men in Victory Gardens, NJ, is now available to address hair loss for good.
While it's true that you can't change your genes, you can change the effects of low testosterone on your body. Whether you're suffering from thinning hair or hair loss across your entire head, TRT and other hormone therapies can stop hair loss and even reverse the process.
Also called "man boobs," gynecomastia is essentially the enlargement of male breast tissue. This increase in fatty tissue is often caused by hormonal imbalances and an increase in estrogen. For men, estrogen levels are elevated during andropause. Also called male menopause, andropause usually happens because of a lack of testosterone.
If you're a man between the ages of 40 and 55, and you're embarrassed by having large breasts, don't lose hope. TRT is a safe, effective way to eliminate the underlying cause of gynecomastia without invasive surgery. With a custom HRT and fitness program, you can bring your testosterone and estrogen levels back to normal before you know it.
Decreased energy was once considered a normal part of aging. Today, many doctors know better. Advances in technology and our understanding of testosterone show that low T and lack of energy often go hand-in-hand.
If you're struggling to enjoy activities like playing with your kids or hiking in a park due to lack of energy, it could be a sign of low T. Of course, getting tired is perfectly normal for any man. But if you're suffering from continual fatigue, a lack of enjoyment, or a decrease in energy, it might be time to speak with a doctor.
Whether you're having a tough time getting through your day or can't finish activities you used to love, TRT could help.
A study from 2011 showed that men who lose a week's worth of sleep can experience lowered testosterone levels â as much as 15%, according to experts. Additional research into the topic found almost 15% of workers only get five hours of sleep (or less) per night. These findings suggest that sleep loss negatively impacts T levels and wellbeing.
The bottom line is that men who have trouble sleeping often suffer from lower testosterone levels as a result. If you find yourself exhausted at the end of the day but toss and turn all night long, you might have low T.
TRT and anti-aging medicines can restore your T levels back to normal, which can help you sleep better with proper diet and exercise.
You're feeling down about everything, and there's no solid explanation for why you're in such a crummy mood. Your daily life is great and full of success, but you can't help but feel unexcited and unmotivated. If you're experiencing symptoms like these, you may be depressed â and it may stem from low testosterone.
A research study from Munich found that men with depression also commonly had low testosterone levels. This same study also found that depressed men had cortisol levels that were 67% higher than other men. Because higher cortisol levels lead to lower levels of testosterone, the chances of severe depression increase.
Depression is a very real disorder and should always be diagnosed and treated by your doctor. One treatment option gaining in popularity is TRT for depression. Studies show that when TRT is used to restore hormone levels, men enjoy a lighter, more improved mood. That's great news for men who are depressed and have not had success with other treatments like anti-depression medicines, which alter the brain's chemistry.
Ask anyone over the age of 50 how their memory is, and they'll tell you it wasn't what it used to be. Memory loss and lack of concentration occur naturally as we age â these aren't always signs of dementia or Alzheimer's.
However, what many men consider a symptom of age may be caused by low testosterone. A 2006 study found that males with low T levels performed poorly on cognitive skill tests. These results suggest that low testosterone may play a part in reducing cognitive ability. If you're having trouble staying on task or remembering what your schedule is for the day, it might not be due to your age. It might be because your testosterone levels are too low. If you're having trouble concentrating or remembering daily tasks, it could be time to talk to your doctor.
Why? The aforementioned study found that participating men experienced improved cognitive skills when using TRT.
Even though today's society is more inclusive of large people, few adults enjoy gaining weight as they age. Despite their best efforts, many men just can't shed the extra pounds around their midsections, increasing their risk of heart disease and cancer.
Often, male weight gain is caused by hormone imbalances that slow the metabolism and cause weight to pile on. This phase of life is called andropause and happens when there is a lack of testosterone in the body. Couple that with high cortisol levels, and you've got a recipe for flabby guts and double chins.
Fortunately, TRT treatments and physician-led weight loss programs can correct hormone imbalances and lead to healthy weight loss for men.
Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide, like GHRH, which triggers the release of growth hormones. When used under the care of a qualified physician, Sermorelin can help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, and help you feel much younger.
Human growth hormone (HGH) therapy has been used for years to treat hormone deficiencies. Unlike HGH, which directly replaces declining human growth hormone levels, Sermorelin addresses the underlying cause of decreased HGH, stimulating the pituitary gland naturally. This approach keeps the mechanisms of growth hormone production active.
Benefits of Sermorelin include:
Ipamorelin helps to release growth hormones in a person's body by mimicking a peptide called ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones which work together to regulate the growth hormone levels released by the pituitary gland. Because Ipamorelin stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, your body won't stop its natural growth hormone production, which occurs with synthetic HGH.
Ipamorelin causes growth hormone secretion that resembles natural release patterns rather than being constantly elevated from HGH. Because ipamorelin stimulates the natural production of growth hormone, our patients can use this treatment long-term with fewer health risks.
One of the biggest benefits of Ipamorelin is that it is suitable for both men and women. It provides significant short and long-term benefits in age management therapies, boosting patients' overall health, wellbeing, and outlook on life. When growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits.
Some of those benefits include:

The Mountain Lakes players made it clear that they didn’t just want to win the final Tournament of Champions is boys lacrosse. They wanted to make a statement.
A statement that certified how talented they were, how hard they were willing to work for and with one another, and also how very important it was to show the NJSIAA that the Tournament of Champions is a viable platform that should not be dissolved because it gives Group 1 and 2 schools the opportunity to prove themselves as the premier teams in the Garden State.
This, however, was no mere statement generated by Mountain Lakes. This was a booming thunderclap that rattled some windows in the first quarter, kept rolling along over the next three and is probably still echoing in the valleys of the Watchung Mountains as we speak.
Mountain Lakes, ranked No. 1 in NJ.com but seeded third, forged a five-goal lead in the first quarter behind some creative dodging and shooting, and continued to build upon that advantage with strong, steady swipes on its way to a 21-5 victory over No. 5 and top-seeded Rumson-Fair Haven in the 18th and final TOC Monday afternoon at Ridge High in Basking Ridge.
“Yes, we wanted to make a statement. Our motto was ‘Last one, best one,’ and we wanted to make it just that,” senior attackman Reid Tietjen said. “It’s a shame this is the last TOC, but we wanted to end it on a great note.”
Senior middie Caz Kotsen struck for five goals, two in that first quarter, senior attackman Bradford Goodbar scored three goals and assisted on two, Tietjen contributed two goals and four assists, and brothers Justin and Jordan Hernando won a combined 26 of 29 faceoffs to send Mountain Lakes (22-1) to its fourth TOC title with a record number of goals that produced the most lopsided championship win in the platform’s history.
Previously, the widest margin of victory and record for goals was accomplished by Delbarton with an 18-8 decision over Mountain Lakes in the 2006 final.
Delbarton has won a record seven TOC crowns while Mountain Lakes now holds the mark among public schools with four. The Lakers and Bridgewater were tied with three trophies each.
This Mountain Lakes team was so on target and also so stifling on the opposite end of the field against one of the most feared offenses in New Jersey that it scored 16 goals before the third quarter was completed. Remarkably, the Lakers seized a 15-3 lead with 5:36 to go in that quarter to initiate a running clock, which takes effect once a team establishes a 12-goal lead in the second half.
“I don’t think anyone could have expected this with how good a team Rumson is, but we came out to play today,” Kotsen said. “I was so proud of my guys, so proud of my team for all the work we put in this past week. This was the result of that work, I guess. It was really amazing.”
Amazing is a word that has been associated with Kotsen in recent games after plunking down five goals in the semifinals against St. Augustine, 10-5, and collecting three goals and one assist in the quarterfinals against Rutgers Prep, 14-4.

But in this contest against Rumson-Fair Haven, there really wasn’t a single player on the field for Mountain Lakes that did not earn that adjective.
For instance, Ryan McLaughlin, Gavin Ananian, Nate Holiday, Lucas Sawransky and shortstick middies Ben Buzby, Oliver Bush and Marco Dzamba anchored a defense that held Rumson (22-5) to 9.3 goals below its per-game average. Senior goalie Jimmy Holda made four saves in the first half and junior Matt Sentowsky rejected four shots in the second half to support that hard-nosed defense.
At the other end of the turf, the Lakers painted a masterpiece with 21 goals on 37 shots, and with 12 players connecting at least once for a goal. Senior middie John Lane sank two of those goals and also assisted on one, and the Hernando brothers each scored once in transition directly off a won faceoff.
Rumson-Fair Haven was led by junior attackman Quinn Stankovits with two goals and senior middie Phil Passalaqua with one goal and one assist.
“This is a very strong and a great senior class. It’s a team with great leadership, the kids love one another, they come from great families, and they got better every day,” Mountain Lakes head coach Tim Flynn said. He has guided the Lakers to nine overall state championships (five before the TOC began in 2004) and now has 715 career victories, the most by far in state history.
“We practiced with 42 kids, and the last kid on the roster was giving his all every day in practice to make everyone a little bit better. A beautiful thing to see,” Flynn said.
Mountain Lakes had been building toward this spectacular sendoff since absorbing its only loss, 12-6, to then-No. 2 Don Bosco Prep on April 23. The Lakers outscored their five opponents in the Group 1 tournament 74-10, topped Rutgers Prep by 10 in the TOC quarters, but then ran into trouble against St. Augustine in the semis. Mountain Lakes led by one goal at the half, but pulled away after the break for that 10-5 win.
“We were saying all year long that we hadn’t played our best game yet. Good, but not our best,” Flynn said.
And now, coach?
“This is what you hope for as a coach; that your kids are going to put everything together at the most important time, and they did. Really, as a coaching staff, we just sat back in this game and watched. We didn’t do much coaching because we just didn’t have to.”
Schuckman sank the opening goal of the game with a lefthanded bouncer from 16 yards out with 6:36 to go in the first quarter. Kotsen then sank back-to-back goals off impressive dodges for a three-goal lead with 3:32 left in the period. Jordan Hernando struck just six seconds later when he won the faceoff and sprinted down the middle of the box and fired away. Jimmy Elliot made it a five-goal game with 1:32 to go.
Rumson-Fair Haven showed both the determination and the shooting skills that led it to the program’s second state title by sinking the first two goals of the second quarter - Passalaqua and then Stankovits - to cut the deficit to three.
Kotsen scored his third goal when he slipped trying to dodge a defender, sprang to his feet and delivered a rocket from 14 yards out for a 6-2 lead with 2:36 left in the half. Christian Bockelmann scored off a pass from Passalaqua to make it 6-3 with 1:43 to go.
At that point, it seemed as if Rumson had ironed away its early miscues and found its balance. And then Mountain Lakes ended that quarter with a three-goal spree in just 16 seconds to carry a 9-3 lead into the second half. Buzby launched it when it trucked the ball across midfield and scored unsettled, and then Tietjen and Goodbar followed.
“We’ve got six offensive guys on the field at all times that can score. That’s hats off to the offense. They do their jobs better than anyone else in the state,” McLaughlin said.
Of course, that offense has to try finding shots each practice against McLaughlin and his tenacious group. It can be very frustrating at times for the shooters, though it is also a constant exercise in skill sharpening.
The Laker defense was in general outstanding, and McLaughlin, a UPenn commit, was especially effective, holding his man without a goal or assist.
Looking to make that statement, Mr. McLaughlin?
“Of course we were. We were looking to make a statement when they put us as the three seed int the TOC,” he said. “We’re the underdogs in a lot of circumstances and we wanted to prove everyone wrong today.”
Next year, Mountain Lakes would be far less likely to carry underdog status into the tournament since it will stop cold after the Group 1 final. The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association Executive Committee voted overwhelmingly last December to end the TOC format after this school year, essentially so sports can extend their regular seasons and teams can have more practice time in between sport seasons.
“I hate it. This tournament is Group 1 against Group 2 and that shows that anyone can be in it, anyone can win it. It would have been a shame to me if my season had ended three days ago,” Kotsen said.
“It’s a travesty, and you can quote me on that,” Flynn said. “Group 1 and Group 2 and it’s their (Rumson) first time here. You don’t think they want to come back? You don’t think we want to come back?
“Lacrosse has always been down to one on the field and it’s a beautiful thing. There are other sates that are jealous. They are jealous because we do that and no one else does,” Flynn said. “Nobody runs, nobody hides, you’ve got to play.”

Hyde Parker Namir Smallwood is making a name for himself on Chicago’s theater scene. An ensemble member of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company since 2017, he’s now starring in the theatre’s adaptation of the famed Anton Chekhov play “Seagull.”
The adaptation, translated and directed by Steppenwolf ensemble member Yasen Peyankov, features Smallwood performing as the character of the tormented experimental playwright Konstantin Treplev. This role is one of many deeply disturbed and intense performances Smallwood has played throughout his career.
Smallwood, 38, said he's known he wanted to be an actor since age 14. Born and raised in Newark, NJ, he participated in an academic enrichment program that allowed him to choose a few electives, and he chose drama club. When his performance in a skit about a boy who hadn’t seen his father in 20 years brought himself and the room to tears, he realized he had found his calling.
“They said I should be an actor,” Smallwood said.
Even before that, he traveled around New Jersey reciting Martin Luther King, Jr. speeches for Black History Month and noticed that older people would cry. “I had a talent for memorization and a knack for mimicry that took them back in time,” he said.
At a Catholic all-boys high school in West Orange, NJ, he tried out for football and track but discovered he didn't like running, so he joined the speech and debate team instead. “We did one play, 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest,' and I wanted to make the most of my part as nighttime orderly, Mr. Turkle,” he said. “I filled a Wild Turkey bottle with tea and crossed the stage so drunkenly that the students laughed, and the teacher became genuinely concerned about what I was drinking.”
When considering colleges, he auditioned for The Juilliard School in New York City and the University of Minnesota Guthrie Theater Actor Training Program in Minneapolis. At Juilliard, Smallwood auditioned with almost 1,000 other aspiring actors, and was among 101 hopefuls to advance to a second round of auditions before ultimately getting cut. Later, on a trip to the Guthrie Theater during auditions for the Minnesota program, Smallwood said, “they let us roam around on the stage, and I told myself that if I got in, this is where I was going to go.”
Smallwood did get into the University of Minnesota, and after obtaining his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, he remained in Minneapolis to work around town for another four years. Smallwood initially came to Chicago in 2009 to visit former classmates, and often went to general auditions at Steppenwolf. In 2010 he got cast in “The Lost Boys of Sudan” at Victory Gardens Theater, another North Side venue. “While I was in that show, I decided I liked Chicago enough to live here,” he said. “As fate would have it, I got cast in Steppenwolf's 'Hot L Baltimore' in 2011 and moved here with a job.”
“Man in Love” followed later that season, but Smallwood said that after that, he couldn't land a role in Chicago for five years. He would audition for plays in Chicago and across the country, as well as return to Minneapolis occasionally to do a show. Smallwood's big break finally came when his agent recommended he audition for the Northlight Theatre production of “Charm.” While still in Minnesota for a production, he sent in an audition tape to the Skokie theatre. "Charm" playwright Philip Dawkins had previously seen Smallwood in a play, liked his work and cast him. “That entirely changed my fortune in Chicago, and I've been working ever since,” Smallwood said.
Though he said he can’t choose a favorite role, his time in “Seagull” has given him a love for Chekhov. "(“Seagull”) is about humanity and its relationship to art and artists,” he said. “Chekhov demands that the actor be fully present,” said Smallwood. “Like August Wilson, (Chekov’s) plays are about music. You hear the notes and chords, but the most beautiful parts are the silences.”
Smallwood, who lives with his partner near the Museum of Science and Industry, said their favorite place in the neighborhood is Jackson Park’s Japanese Garden. In addition to being a space for Smallwood to contemplate, it’s where he and his partner went on their first date in 2019.
Following “Seagull,” which ends June 12, Smallwood will perform in a reprise of Steppenwolf's production of “True West” at the Galway International Arts Festival in July. “After that, we'll see what happens,” he said.

New Jersey wrestling legend Jordan Burroughs will need another huge match later Wednesday night to add to his legacy.
Burroughs dropped the second match of his best-of-three 79 kg freestyle Final X series to Chance Marsteller, 2-2, on criteria on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater.
Burroughs yielded the first takedown to Marsteller in Round 2 and trailed 2-0 at the break. He scored a passivity point and caution+1 - the latter tying the match with six seconds left - but Marsteller owned critera.
Marsteller and Burroughs will compete in a third winner-take-all match to determine the World Team member at 79 kg.
Burroughs, a former Winslow Township state champion is a five-time world champion, Olympic champion and three-time bronze medalist. He is tied with John Smith and Adeline Gray for with six world or Olympic titles.
Burroughs picked up a methodical 4-0 victory over Marsteller in the first round, scoring the only takedown of the match in building a 3-0 lead in the first period.
Burroughs had qualified for the world team every year since beginning his senior level career in 2011 months after winning his second NCAA title as a senior for the University of Nebraska in Philadelphia with the exception of the 2020 Olympic Games.
After failing to make the Olympic team at 74 kg - his weight the past decade - Burroughs essentially switched weights with Olympian Kyle Dake, who was a two-time world champion at 79 kg. Burroughs won his first 79 kg world title last year, his first as a member of the Pennsylvania Regional Training Center.
Wednesday’s performance was the closest Burroughs has been to home in such a big tournament since that NCAA title win. He has competed often in New York at the Beat the Streets exhibitions over the years.

The Golden State Warriors sent a message with their Game 5 victory over the Boston Celtics and are now just one win away from winning the 2022 NBA Title. Stephen Curry’s streak of 233 consecutive games with at least one three-pointer made was snapped on Monday, yet it didn’t matter. The Warriors still toppled the Celtics 104-94 and now have a chance to close out the series at TD Garden on Thursday.
The team lost despite Curry going 0-for-9 from three and it was also the first time the Celtics lost back-to-back games this postseason. They had gone 8-0 in that situation before Monday’s pivotal defeat.
There’s hope for the Celtics yet, though, as the Warriors are not half as good on the road as they are at home. The Warriors own a nearly-immaculate 11-1 record at home in the postseason. That record drops to a troubling 4-5 away from Chase Center. The Dubs haven’t won two road games in any series this postseason, so is there a Game 7 in the cards?
The Celtics have upset the odds all the way during the postseason, and ever since they swept the Brooklyn Nets, have looked like a team capable of winning a championship. The Warriors are packed full of stars, many of which have been in this situation before. Whichever way this goes, get set for an end-to-end masterpiece.

WASHINGTON - A federal appeals court on Friday rejected a Trump administration finding that the active ingredient in the weed killer Roundup does not pose a serious health risk and is "not likely" to cause cancer in humans.
The California-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to reexamine its 2020 finding that glyphosate did not pose a health risk for people exposed to it by any means -- on farms, yards or roadsides or as residue left on food crops.
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup, the most widely used herbicide in the world. Pharmaceutical giant Bayer, which acquired the herbicide's original producer Monsanto in 2018, is facing thousands of claims from people who say Roundup exposure caused their cancer.
Roundup will remain available for sale. According to an agency spokesman, EPA officials are reviewing the 54-page ruling "and will decide next steps." The Supreme Court is also considering whether to hear an appeal from Bayer that could shut down thousands of lawsuits on the cancer claims.
Writing for a unanimous three-judge panel, Judge Michelle Friedland said EPA's finding of no risk to human health "was not supported by substantial evidence." She also ruled that EPA fell short of its obligations under the Endangered Species Act by inadequately examining glyphosate's impact on animal species and vegetation.
Legal critics said EPA "shirked its duties under the Endangered Species Act. We agree and remand to the agency for further consideration," wrote Friedland, a nominee of former President Barack Obama.
The Center for Food Safety, one of the groups that challenged the decision, called Friday's ruling "a historic victory for farmworkers and the environment."
The decision "gives voice to those who suffer from glyphosate's cancer, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma," said Amy van Saun, senior attorney with the center.
"EPA's `no cancer' risk conclusion did not stand up to scrutiny," she said. "The court agreed that EPA needed to ensure the safety of endangered species before greenlighting glyphosate."
While EPA has said it has not found evidence of cancer risk from glyphosate, California and other states have listed it as a cancer risk and local governments across the country have restricted its use. In 2015, the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer classified the chemical as "probably carcinogenic."
Bayer announced last year it is removing glyphosate from the U.S. residential lawn-and-garden marketplace, effective as early as 2023.
Bayer said in a statement Friday night that EPA's 2020 conclusion "was based on a rigorous assessment of the extensive body of science spanning more than 40 years." The company believes that EPA "will continue to conclude, as it and other regulators have consistently concluded for more than four decades, that glyphosate-based herbicides can be used safely and are not carcinogenic," the statement said.
Last year, Bayer set aside $4.5 billion to deal with the claims that glyphosate causes non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a type of cancer. The company had previously taken a charge of nearly $10 billion for earlier rounds of litigation.
"EPA's failure to act on the science, as detailed in the litigation, has real-world adverse health consequences for farmworkers, the public and ecosystems," said Jay Feldman, executive director of Beyond Pesticides, a plaintiff in the case. "Because of this lawsuit, the agency's obstruction of the regulatory process will not be allowed to stand."
