In August 2018, a Jury verdict ordered Monsanto to pay $289 Million to a cancer victim for failing to warn about the side effects of using Roundup® weed killer. A number of studies have found evidence linking the weed killer’s main ingredient, glyphosate, to serious side effects and certain types of cancer, including non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) recently found that glyphosate in Roundup is likely a cancer-causing agent. The IARC report linked the side effects of Roundup® to an increased risk of non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL).
Scientific studies have shown a causal association between Monsanto Roundup® weed killer and an increased risk of certain forms of cancer. By 2001, Roundup® weed killer was the most-used active ingredient in American agriculture, with an estimated 85-90 million pounds used each year.
In 2007, that number reached 185 million pounds annually and today, Roundup remains the most widely used herbicide in the United States and worldwide.
So why are we still using Round-up? http://ow.ly/i/IgRTd
