Weeds have been a nuisance to all land owners – large or small- since the beginning of time.
It wasn’t until the 1970’s that the company Monsanto produced and marketed Roundup – a glyphosate based solution that would act as an herbicide for every-day use.
Roundup is the most popular weed killer. How is it dangerous?
Prior to its first registration with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the mid-1980s, Roundup was thought to be safe for human and environmental contact. Since then, scientists have learned otherwise.
In March of 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, as a “probable carcinogen” in humans.
