Glyphosate, the Most Widely Used Herbicide. Health and safety issues. Why scientists differ in their evaluation of its adverse health effects
Glyphosate, is an herbicide that was introduced by Monsanto under the trade name Roundup in 1974 and in the last decade became the most widely used agricultural pesticide worldwide. It allows farmers to kill weeds but not the crops that will grow there. Glyphosate comes in many forms, including an acid and several salts. There are over 750 products containing glyphosate for sale. It is registered in 130 countries and has been approved for weed control in more than 100 crops. Recently there was a big dispute about the carcinogenicity and the extension of its appliaction in agriculture
