Safe Organic Herbicide Options

There’s an Increased Cancer Risk with Glyphosate – Try a Safe Organic Herbicide Option Instead

Do you know that the most common weed killer Roundup® (glyphosate) increases cancer risk by 41%?  A recent from the University of Washington evaluated existing studies in the chemical found in weed killers including Monsanto’s popular Roundup —and concluded that it significantly increases the risk on non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), a cancer of the immune system.

The authors of the University of Washington report analyzed all published studies on the impact of glyphosate on humans. Co-author and doctoral student Rachel Shaffer said in a statement: “This research provides the most up-to-date analysis of glyphosate and its link with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, incorporating a 2018 study of more than 54,000 people who work as licensed pesticide applicators.” The scientists also assessed studies on animals.
