What is Roundup®?
Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer is a herbicide, a chemical product recommended for killing unwanted plants on lawns, gardens, driveways & patios.
All Roundup® products contain the same active ingredient, a herbicide called “glyphosate”. Roundup® is used by landscapers, gardeners, farmers and homeowners to control weeds that compete with crops and other plants. The main ingredient in Roundup® is glyphosate, a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide and crop desiccant.
Landscapers and farmers quickly adopted glyphosate, after Monsanto introduced Roundup®, enabling farmers to kill weeds without killing their crops.
In 2007, glyphosate was the most used herbicide in the United States agricultural sector and the second most used in home and garden.
Roundup® linked to Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Roundup® products are marketed as safe and non-toxic, however, it is now apparent that the Roundup® manufacturer, Monsanto, has withheld important safety information on the link between Roundup® and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, as well as other blood cancers.
In March 2017, International Agency for Research on Cancer released IARC Monographs Volume 112: "Evaluation of Five Organophosphate Insecticides and Herbicides" stating:
“The herbicide glyphosate and the insecticides malathion and diazinon were classified as probably carcinogenic to humans (Group 2A). The insecticides tetrachlorvinphos and parathion were classified as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B). ”
