Roundup is Linked to Cancer in Farmers, Janitors, Gardeners, and Groundskeepers: Here’s Why, and What’s Being Done

Used by both farmers and homeowners in 150+ countries up until several years ago. When scientific study showed evidence that glyphosate (the main ingredient in Monsanto’s flagship product) was directly linked to high instances of of cancer; non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma being the largest culprit, Monsanto was inundated with an avalanche of lawsuits. The current number sits somewhere near 1,000 lawsuits as of April 2019.
