What is the problem with Roundup?

In 2015, the World Health Organization (IARC) reported that glyphosate was “probably carcinogenic to humans.” Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup. Studies revealed “convincing evidence that glyphosate can cause cancer in laboratory animals.

 

How does Roundup cause cancer?

Beneficial bacteria in the human body depend on the very enzyme glyphosate targets. Roundup’s active ingredient targets and disrupts cells that regulate processes in the immune and digestive systems.

 

Why file a lawsuit against Roundup?

Lawsuits against Monsanto indicate that the company has been aware of the links between Roundup and cancer for as many as 30 years. Monsanto incorrectly and intentionally claims that glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup) targets an enzyme found only in plants. Their claim is “false, misleading and deceptive.”

The company has failed and continues to fail to warn users of the connection between their product and cancer going so far as creating fake information, attacking studies that link Roundup to cancer, and colluding with the EPA to disavow any connection between the two.

 

What types of cancer does Roundup cause?
