The World Health Organization recently found that the pesticide Roundup probably causes cancer in humans.
On March 20, 2015, the WHO, through the International Agency for Registry of Cancers, issued a new assessment for the herbicide Glyphosate. It is the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup. Roundup was developed and is sold by Monsanto. Other herbicides like Rodeo, Aquaneat, and Aquastar also contain it and may cause the same conditions.
Exposure through direct contact, inhalation and ingestion has been linked to an increased risk in developing:
- Non-Hodgkin Lymphona (NHL);
- Multiple Myeloma (MM);
- Hairy Cell Leukemia; and,
- Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
There are also reports that Roundup causes other health issues as well, including prostate cancer, birth defects, Parkinson’s disease, and others. Roundup, though, is not the only herbicide containing Glyphosate.
