  • Monsanto, the maker of Roundup, has long claimed that Roundup is safe and environmentally friendly, but recent studies show it does not readily break down in the environment and is now contaminating our air, rain, water and food.
  • Glyphosate has been linked to more than 20 adverse health effects, including birth defects, infertility and cancer.
  • You can reduce your exposure to glyphosate-containing herbicides by avoiding genetically modified food, which are heavily contaminated with it. It’s also a wise choice to have your well or city water tested for contaminants, and install a whole-house filtration system to remove pollutants.
