A study conducted by researchers at the University of Washington concluded that exposure to the chemical glyphosate, found in Monsanto Roundup, increases the risk of cancer. This study was based on an evaluation of the existing research and studies that have been conducted on the possible dangers of Monsanto Roundup.
The results of the study, published in the journal Mutation Research, indicate that exposure to the chemicals in the herbicide can increase the risk of cancer by 41%. Although Bayer, the owner of Monsanto Roundup, continues to contend that that it is a safe and effective way to kill weeds, a growing body of research indicates otherwise. Monsanto Roundup lawsuits continue to be filed across the country alleging that exposure to glyphosate caused cancer.
Why is Monsanto Roundup Allegedly Dangerous?
Monsanto Roundup is an herbicide that is widely used in the landscaping and agriculture industries across the country. The active ingredient, glyphosate, is highly effective in killing weeds and boosting crop production. However, the chemical has also been connected to the development of cancer. Recent scientific studies have revealed that long-term exposure to glyphosate can lead to the development of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Those who have the highest risk include farm workers, landscapers, and others who routinely worked in the agricultural industry.
