What are the ingredients in Roundup?
The main active ingredient of Roundup is the isopropylamine salt of glyphosate. Another ingredient of Roundup is the surfactant POEA (polyethoxylated tallow amine). Monsanto also produced seeds which grow into plants genetically engineered to be tolerant to glyphosate, which are known as Roundup Ready crops.
What is the main ingredient in Roundup that is toxic?
Further, research has shown that glyphosate, the active molecule in the herbicide Roundup, acts as an endocrine disruptor, which means that it has the ability to trigger cancer, birth defects, and other developmental disorders.
