The Chemical Glyphosate

Glyphosate was launched in the 1970s for use as a weedkiller in the formulated herbicide product Roundup. It is now so pervasive in our environment that it can be found in our bodies, soil, air, rain, and food.

The Invisible Toll

Monsanto (now owned by pharmaceutical giant Bayer) and the EPA claim that there is no measurable impact to human or animal health from glyphosate. However, research has shown that to be untrue, and the toll that our bodies, environment, and tax dollars pay from the continued use of this invisible chemical are substantial.

Animal Health

The explosion in chronic disease isn’t limited to humans - dogs and cats have seen a huge rise in cancer over the last few decades as well. And Roundup is absorbed through the paws.
