The Monsanto Papers: Glyphosate was originally patented by Monsanto and branded Roundup - a powerful weed killer. Today it is the most widely used herbicide in the world. For most farmers it's essential because it works, and they do not have any alternatives yet. Choosing not to use the product would mean massive problems in their systems. Some farmers believe that of all the chemicals available, Roundup is the safest if you take all the necessary precautions.

He blames Roundup for the cancer, even though he can't prove it. Allegedly the number of farmers with this particular cancer is noticeable. Is it all just a coincidence?
