IARC Reversal on Coffee Cancer Claims Calls into Question Other Litigation-Producing Claims

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has reversed its 1991 evaluation that classified coffee as a carcinogen.  

As Legal Newsline reports, IARC’s original evaluation contributed to litigation, such as the Council for Education and Research on Toxics lawsuits against Starbucks and other coffee chains in 2014 for not informing customers of the coffee containing carcinogens. 

IARC’s reversal may call into question litigation fueled by other IARC’s claims, such as lawsuits against Monsanto over the herbicide glyphosate, which IARC currently classifies as a carcinogen.
