The safety of the world’s most widely used weed killer, Monsanto’s Roundup, is being put into question by a group of people who claim they have developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma as a result of exposure to glyphosate. Glyphosate, Roundup’s main ingredient, was introduced in the 1970s and is the most widely used herbicide in the world. It is sprayed on farms, in forests, on road sides, and in gardens. Although the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has maintained its classification of glyphosate as having “evidence of noncarcinogenicity for humans” since 1991, unsealed documents in San Francisco federal court is raising questions about its safety and the research practices of the manufacturer.
Monsanto’s internal emails and email traffic between the company and federal regulators suggest that Monsanto influenced research findings and worked to prevent the United States Department of Health and Human Service’s review of glyphosate.
