It is now known that Roundup has established links to a variety of cancers, and while it is banned in some countries, this weedkiller product is unfortunately still actively sold and marketed in the United States.
The main ingredient in Roundup is Glyphosate, a powerful and highly toxic pesticide commonly known as a weedkiller. Glyphosate has been proven to be carcinogenic, but its use in agriculture has still increased exponentially. In fact, it is one of the most widely used pesticides in the United States.
Glyphosate is also proven to trigger cancerous growth and malignant tumors. Several highly respected scientific bodies have examined the health risks posed by Glyphosate and concluded that the substance is toxic to human beings, as well as animals.
Another Roundup ingredient is Aminophosphorus, which is a commonly used component of non-organic products such as fertilizers and is extremely toxic to humans. A study conducted at the International Agency for Research on Cancer concluded that there is strong evidence to support the contention that Glyphosphate and Aminophosphorus cause cancer in humans. The researchers of this study recommended banning the use of Glyphosphate and Aminophosphorus in organic farming.
Roundup additionally has Bromine, which is considered to have highly toxic effects on human health. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) determined that there is sufficient evidence to conclude that Bromine causes cancer in humans. However, the FDA did not conclude that Bromine causes cancer in animals, and instead called for further research in this area.
According to the Center for Food Safety and Environmental Health, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s position on the safety of some of these chemicals is “unchanged”.
