Glyphosate disrupting root systems, destroying soil nutrients and eliminating earthworms

More than 100 million pounds of the weedkiller glyphosate is applied annually to crops in the U.S., contributing to cancers such as non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and liver, pancreas and thyroid cancer, among other health complications. One of the main ingredients in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, glyphosate, not only is a threat to human health but is aggressively altering our environment in ways that could have long-term consequences.

One of the most recent concerns regarding the widespread application of glyphosate is the impact that it's having on soil nutrients. Some experts allege that USDA scientists are purposely covering up critical information regarding potentially irreversible soil damage caused by glyphosate.
