There has been a lot of discussion in the media lately about glyphosate (Roundup) and what some see as a huge risk of exposure to a possibly carcinogenic chemical.

Some examples:

A lot of this discussion was spurred by the IARC's reclassification of glyphosate as a Group 2A carcinogen: IARC Monographs Volume 112: evaluation of five organophosphate insecticides and herbicides

Is exposure to glyphosate through the food supply something to be concerned about? I'm not talking about field workers who may come in contact with concentrated amounts, but whether the levels that could be encountered on or in produce in a general consumer type setting could be a health risk.
