Round Up (active ingredient glyphosate) is the world’s most popular broad spectrum herbicide. U.S. consumers use nearly one billion pounds of glyphosate in field and lawn applications each year.
Round Up is manufactured by the Monsanto Company, a Fortune 500 headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri; also a leading producer of genetically engineered (GE) agricultural seed.
Exposure to the glyphosate in Round Up may occur from normal use in rural and agricultural communities due to airborne drift, runoff into potential drinking water sources, and residues in food crops.
A growing body of research links the active ingredient in Round Up, glyphosate, to the development of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. One review recently published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health was based on substantial epidemiological research regarding the relationship between the increase in Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) observed over the last 30 years and occupational exposure to agricultural pesticides including Round Up.
