I am sure every reader of this Roundup information has a bottle of Roundup at home.

How Does Roundup Kill Weeds?

Roundup's key chemical is glyphosate and was manufactured by Monsanto in 1974. Glyphosate direct action blocks an enzyme that is critical to plant growth and life.

Roundup Litigation And News Update

In September, 2015, a fieldworker was diagnosed with bone cancer after being exposed to the weed-killer Roundup and has filed a lawsuit against Monsanto Co.

In August, 2015, in Hawaii is introducing legislation that would ban the spraying of Monsanto’s weed-killer Roundup and other herbicides.

In June, 2015, France has been banned from garden centers after it was declared a “probable” human carcinogen by the UN.

In June, 2015, Denmark’s Working Environmental Authority has declared Monsanto’s toxic weed-killer Roundup a carcinogen (cancer-causing chemical).

According to Danish experts, "We know that glyphosate causes cancer in other mammals, but it has not been demonstrated in humans. That is because the effects are not investigated thoroughly enough in people yet. But when we see that other mammals get cancer from glyphosate, we must assume that people who are exposed to the substance can also develop cancer."

Humans biologically are not that different from animals or immune from toxic substances.

Widespread Glyphosate Usage With GMO Crops

Roundup use grew exponentially in the mid-1990s and exploded, when Monsanto started selling genetically-modified (GMO) corn, soy, and cotton seeds. The DNA in the seeds were tinkered with in the lab to be resistant to glyphosate.

In other words, the corn, soy and cotton seeds were genetically modified to withstand the destructive power of Glyphosate.

Currently, glyphosate products are used on over 50% of American farmlands and is a big cash cow for Montsanto, generating over $6 billion in yearly revenue.

Does Roundup Cause Cancer?

In the past 20 years, there is growing evidence connecting Roundup with cancer.

In March 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization, announced that Roundup (glyphosate) as “probably carcinogenic for humans.”

The announcement was based on “convincing evidence” that glyphosate causes cancer in laboratory animals. In humans, there is “limited evidence” linking Roundup and cancer, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and DNA/chromosomal damage.

Roundup and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

A Swedish study in the International Journal of Cancer, October 2008, found that exposure to glyphosate doubled the risk of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma within less than 10 years.

An American study in the Occupational and Environmental Medicine, September 2003, found that farmworkers in the midwest found higher rates of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma associated with glyphosate exposure.

A Canadian study, Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers, November 2001, reported that they found a dose-response relationship between glyphosate exposure and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Roundup Class Action Lawsuit

In April 2015, a Roundup class action lawsuit (Case No: BC 578 942) was filed in Los Angeles County, California.
