What is Roundup?
Roundup is a herbicide, or weed killer produced by the biotech giant Monsanto (recently acquired by Bayer) that is popularly used worlwide.
This weed killer has been on the market since the 1970s and is commonly used in agriculture. It is also used by the forestry industry, cities and private homeowners.
Over the past several years, thousands of people have filed lawsuits claiming that the product’s active ingredient, glyphosate, can cause several types of life-threatening cancers, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL).
