What Is the Cancer-Causing Ingredient In Roundup?

If you’ve ever used a weed killer, such as Roundup, you’ve more than likely heard of Glyphosate. Glyphosate is one of the most widely used herbicides in the world. With the large lawsuits currently taking place against Roundup, a long-running debate on whether or not this ingredient has been linked to cancer has come back up.

A recent study from the University of Washington found that Glyphosate raises the risk of cancer to those exposed to the ingredient by up to 41%. They close out the study with the following,

“Our current meta-analysis of human epidemiological studies suggests a compelling link between exposures to GBHs and increased risk for NHL (Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma)”

Roundup Amplifies the Effects of Glyphosate

While there is concrete information on Glyphosate linking to cancer, it’s not just this ingredient alone that has caused Roundup to become such a nightmare of a herbicide. Litzenburg, who was involved in the first-ever Roundup lawsuit, stated:

“Glyphosate alone isn’t the big problem—Roundup is.”

He then goes on to say,

“Roundup contains animal fats and other ingredients that increase the carcinogenicity of the glyphosate.”
