Roundup Cancer Attorney Explains
Roundup, the most widely used herbicide in the world, depends on a potentially dangerous chemical called glyphosate. But does that make Roundup itself dangerous? Roundup cancer attorney Darrell Castle explains:
Cancer and the Ingredients in Roundup
The herbicide Roundup contains these important ingredients:
- POEA (polyethoxylated tallow amine)
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) recently named glyphosate as a 2A carcinogen. That means it likely causes cancer.
You’ll find glyphosate in many common household weedkillers, but it first appeared in Roundup. Monsanto makes this product and held a patent on it for decades. Now generic brands also use the chemical.
Glyphosate can be very dangerous on its own. Some countries have restricted or even banned it completely.
However, Roundup uses other herbicides as well. And that’s where things get especially dangerous.
Besides glyphosate, Roundup contains something called POEA (polyethoxylated tallow amine). When glyphosate mixes with POEA, you get a toxic combination. The chemical companies have refused to offer independent, outside investigation into how toxic, but it appears it might be more dangerous than they’ve admitted in the past.
