In one single year, 2006, 96.7 million pounds of glyphosate (Roundup)was sprayed on soybeans alone in the US.
Despite industry claims to the contrary glyphosate herbicides have long been linked to health problems in humans.
This scientific study, first published in 2003 and available on the Science Direct website on the effects of Roundup and other glyphosate based products on humans (and other living things) indicates a clear link between the use of glyphosate-based herbicides and pesticides and cell-cycle dysregulation, a hallmark of tumor cells and human cancers: Glyphosate-based pesticides affect cell cycle regulation
