What is Roundup Weed Killer?
Roundup, developed by Monantso in the 1970s, is a weed killing herbicide containing glyphosate and is one of the most commonly used herbicides in the world for agriculture. Glyphosate is the main active ingredient in Roundup and effectively kills weeds by blocking proteins essential to plant growth. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic to humans”.
Who is at Risk?
Any person who has had extensive exposure to Roundup weed killer such as commercial farmers and professional landscapers. In addition, any homeowners or property owners who use or have used Roundup to maintain their yard could be at risk.
Exposure to Roundup or herbicides containing glyphosate can include:

- Touching sprayed plants
- Drinking from a contaminated water supply
- Eating food grown in treated soil
