14. Severity classification.


15. Provide supplemental information here.

Company causality score: 1 (unlikely relationship). As the reporter did not identify a specific product alleged to have caused the exposure, Bayer has chosen to report this exposure using the product in this report using the information it had available, including reported use and market share. This selection may not be accurate due to the lack of information provided by the reporter. While a loose temporal relationship exists between the use of the product and diagnosis an exposure to the product is not known and it is unclear if and how she was being exposed to the product. The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) concluded that glyphosate is not likely to be carcinogenic to humans.
