Monsanto, a corporation that’s infamously known for withholding vital information regarding the toxicity of its Roundup herbicide, is in the midst of a major a class-action lawsuit.

The reason? According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), Monsanto’s negligence could have put many lives at risk due to Roundup’s controversial ingredient list. In short, Monsanto’s Roundup product has been potentially linked to thousands of cancer cases across the globe.

Why is Monsanto’s RoundUp so Dangerous?

Roundup contains an ingredient called glyphosate. In small doses, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers glyphosate a low-toxicity, Group E chemical; however, with greater and more long-term exposure, those whose occupation it is to utilize this herbicide regularly could have been exposed to greater toxic effects Roundup contains an ingredient called glyphosate. In small doses, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers glyphosate a low-toxicity, Group E chemical; however, with greater and more long-term exposure, those whose occupation it is to utilize this herbicide regularly could have been exposed to greater toxic effects of glyphosate. Research has found that the combination of ingredients found in Roundup can amplify the toxicity of glyphosate, killing healthy human cells thus causing potentially fatal illnesses.

According to Scientific American, “One specific inert ingredient (these are solvents, preservatives, surfactants and other substances that manufacturers add to pesticides), polyethoxylated tallowamine, or POEA, was more deadly to human embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells than the herbicide itself.”

The research team also found that Roundup can cause immense harm to those who are pregnant by interfering with hormone development. The effect of this could be birth defects, miscarriage, or worse.

While glyphosate may be safe in small doses or for personal use, if individuals are exposed to it long-term (such as farmers and agricultural workers), there is research-backed evidence that it can cause immense harm to human cells. This is primarily due to the mixture of ingredients found in Roundup, which multiply the toxic effect of glyphosate.

Can RoundUp Cause Cancer?“Many individuals that have been exposed to Monsanto’s RoundUp
have developed non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma over the last 45 years.”

Can Roundup Cause Cancer?

While many studies have been done since Roundup’s introduction in 1974, most of those studies have been done by Monsanto or have focused on reasons glyphosate is safe for use rather than the toxicity of the product as a whole. More recent research focusing on Roundup’s effect on cell damage has found that Monsanto’s “golden product” is not safe for use at all. What’s worse is that public spaces, including malls, parks, town centers, and even schools use Roundup regularly to manage their landscaping.
