Glyphosate is one of the best-selling and most used herbicides worldwide. It is the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup and countless other weedkillers. These herbicides are commonly used in farming, and public spaces like parks, streets, schools and playgrounds. They are also used domestically in gardens and on allotments. 

Glyphosate weed killers like Roundup are used in the production of genetically modified crops. GMOs are herbicide-resistant, but the weeds and other natural vegetation growing around them are not. Glyphosate is designed to move throughout non-GMO plants and kill them by blocking the plant's ability to make proteins.

In this article, we'll discuss the increasing problem of glyphosate in drinking water – and why you'd be well-served removing it.
