Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup Pro, was deemed “probably carcinogenic to humans” by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in July 2015. Lawsuits allege that Monsanto has known since at least the 1970s about glyphosate’s link to cancer, and yet failed to adequately warn the public and medical communities about this risk.

Update: Experts Divided on Roundup Cancer Risk
March 14, 2019 – With more than 11,000 lawsuits on the books alleging that Monsanto Roundup caused non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and Monsanto’s steadfast denial of these claims, the question remains – how dangerous is the herbicide, and should its legal status be changed? Glyphosate has long been considered by many to be completely safe because it works by inhibiting an enzyme pathway that only exists in green plants, not in humans or other animals. However, over the past 20 years, numerous studies have suggested that glyphosate man not be as safe as originally believed.
What is Roundup Pro?
