History and Studies Regarding Roundup

Roundup is the most widely used weed killer in the United States and worldwide. In the 1980’s it was discovered that several scientific studies regarding the safety of Roundup involved fraudulent activity. Three top executives of Bio-Test Laboratories, who were hired by Monsanto, were fired for falsifying reports. In 1996, Roundup was sued in New York for advertising their product as “safer than table salt,” but was not barred from advertising it as ‘safe for humans’ in other states.

The fact is that the Environmental Protection Agency had classified glyphosate as a possibly carcinogenic substance as early as 1985. The most recent report by the WHO has brought the issue back on the table. Glyphosate kills weeds by disrupting an enzyme known as EPSP for short; however, the human body uses this same enzyme and depends on it for a healthy immune system.

The Monsanto and Bayer companies deny that their product causes cancer, but due to scientific evidence, many courts across the country have been taking the side of the plaintiffs. Experts have testified that in many cases, Roundup has almost certainly been a significant factor in causing cancer for consumers who were exposed to it.
