Glyphosate was found in 85% of the products containing cotton bought in pharmacies and supermarkets including feminine care products like tampons and sanitary pads, sterile gauze pads, cotton swabs and wipes. A report published in March 2015 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) under the World Health Organization (WHO) classified the potent herbicide as “probably carcinogenic.”
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto's weed killer, Roundup.
The cotton used in the the products is mostly GMO.
