Nearly three-fourths of the samples tested had glyphosate levels higher than what EWG scientists consider protective of children's health with an adequate margin of safety. The France-based International Agency for Research on Cancer, which is part of the World Health Organization, classified glyphosate as a "probable human carcinogen" in 2015.

    The samples were found to contain thiophene , 2- and 3-methylthiophenes, methanethiol, and dimethylsulfide. And now they've added a catalogue of organic molecules to that list. There's so much left to learn about Mars. The seasonal variation provides an important clue for determining the origin of martian methane. Here it is retained by the soil until the temperature increases sufficiently to release the gas.
