Roundup is the most widely used herbicide in the world. It is used primarily as a weedkiller. It is used by farmers for crops and landscapers for lawns, gardens, parks, and playgrounds. It is used by private citizens on lawns, gardens backyards all over the United States. Millions of pounds of Roundup weed killer are sprayed every year generating over $6 billion in revenue for its Manufacturer, Monsanto.
The problem with this weed killer is that glyphosate is the main ingredient. Many scientists believe glyphosate causes an increased risk for the development of certain forms of cancer, including non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and hairy cell leukemia. The World Health Organization declared it a "probable human carcinogen" due to the ingredient glyphosate. Roundup has also been linked to thyroid cancer and liver cancer.
Glyphosate, a common agent in herbicides, including roundup, targets specific enzymes in weeds to eradicate them without damaging other plants. American farmers, landscapers and the general public spray nearly a pound of glyphosate on every acre of cropland, lawn and garden. The farmers, landscapers and you and I who use Roundup regularly are often exposed to high levels of glyphosate.
