Despite the dangers we are just finding out about RoundUp, it has been an extremely popular weed killer since it was first introduced in the 1970s. The use of glyphosate in agricultural farming of corn, soybean, wheat, and other crops in the United States has increased dramatically over the last two decades.
Which RoundUp Products Contain Glyphosate?
Some of the most popular RoundUp herbicides that contain glyphosate include:
- RoundUp Ready
- RoundUp Original Max
- RoundUp PowerMax
- RoundUp WeatherMax
- RoundUp Weed & Grass Killer
- RoundUp Weed & Grass Killer Super Concentrate
- RoundUp Precision Gel
Other big weed killer brands that contain glyphosate are BASF, Dow Chemical (AgroSciences), Bayer (CropScience), Sino Harvest, Dupont, and Syngenta.
Food Crops Treated with High Levels of RoundUp Glyphosate
According to data highlighted below by Environmental Sciences Europe, soybean and corn corn crops are treated with Glyphosate the most on farms in the United States. Wheat seems to be low on the list until you take a closer look, and realize that wheat is broken down into three subtypes. When combined to get a better perspective of the number of wheat crops treated with glyphosate across the U.S., wheat comes in just under corn at number 4.

How Does RoundUp Work?
RoundUp’s active ingredient is glyphosate, an herbicide and popular weed killer used to kill a wide range of invasive plants. Glyphosate inhibits the presence of EPSP synthase, an enzyme that most (non GMO) plants need in order to grow. Without ESPS, the targeted plants cannot produce other proteins they need in order to live. As a result, they die within a few days or weeks. Nearly all plants need EPSP synthase to survive and will die without it.
Why is RoundUp Dangerous?
RoundUp is dangerous because it causes serious health complications. Health problems that may occur from exposure to RoundUp include cancer, kidney and liver disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, autism, neurological disorders like Parkinson’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, depression, and much more.
The active ingredient in RoundUp is glyphosate, an endocrine disruptor and probable carcinogen according to a 2015 study published by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). By contrast, the EPA changed the status of glyphosate from a chemical “possible” of causing cancer to one that does not in 1989.
Possible health problems that may occur from exposure to RoundUp include cancer, kidney and liver disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, autism, neurological disorders like Parkinson’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, depression, and much more.
The decision to declassify glyphosate as a possible carcinogen in the United States led to widespread use of the chemical not only in RoundUp as a weed killer for landscaping, but also as an herbicide for agricultural crops farmed for human consumption. Millions of American men, women, and children have ingested glyphosate. Even unborn children have succumbed to developmental issues after it crossed the placental barrier during gestation.
RoundUp Cancer Lawsuit Attorneys — Baron & Budd, P.C.
Monsanto remains steadfast in its assertion that RoundUp is not a human carcinogen, but there is a growing amount of scientific evidence that suggests otherwise. If it is found that Monsanto knowingly withheld information regarding the health risks of glyphosate, the company could be forced to pay many millions of dollars in damages.
