Our government meanwhile doesn’t even admit that glysophate is toxic. Why? Because it has relied on studies from the producer, Monsanto (Bayer). All very cozy. But the company now faces massive class action lawsuits.
Glyphosate is one of the most widely used herbicides across the US and is the active ingredient in products such as Roundup, Rodeo Aquatic Herbicide, and Eraser. The toxic chemical is a broad-spectrum herbicide that kills plants but has also been linked to cancer in humans by the World Health Organization.
