Story at-a-glance -

  • Glyphosate-based herbicides like Roundup are the most heavily used agricultural chemicals of all time, with 1.8 million tons being applied to U.S. fields alone since 1974
  • August 10, 2018, a jury ruled Monsanto must pay $289 million in damages to Dewayne Johnson, who developed a lethal form of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma following heavy exposure to Roundup during his work as a groundskeeper
  • Glyphosate is also showing up in the food supply at potentially unsafe levels. Testing revealed 43 out of 45 food products made with conventionally grown oats tested positive for glyphosate
  • Thirty-one of the 43 products had glyphosate levels higher than Environmental Working Group scientists believe would be protective of children’s health
  • Glyphosate has even been detected in PediaSure Enteral Formula nutritional drink, given to infants and children via feeding tubes; 30 percent of the samples tested contained levels of glyphosate over 75 ppb — far higher levels than have been found to destroy gut bacteria in chickens (0.1 ppb)
