Tests show that Roundup is genotoxic

Tests by a US government agency on common weedkilling products such as Roundup, made with the chemical glyphosate, have found some formulations sold to the public to be genotoxic, meaning they are damaging to human DNA.

Monsanto’s German owner Bayer AG is currently mired in litigation brought by tens of thousands of cancer patients who claim exposure to Monsanto’s Roundup and other similar glyphosate-based formulated products made by Monsanto caused their cancers.
