Glyphosate, the active ingredient in the Monsanto Roundup weed killer and other companies’ products, has been listed as a probable cause of non-Hodgkin lymphoma by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is the World Health Organization’s cancer research arm.
The evidence shows that people who were exposed to glyphosate experienced higher reported incidences of non-Hodgkin lymphoma than those who weren’t exposed to the herbicide. The IARC report further points out that glyphosate is currently used in 750 products around the world, and use of the herbicide has “increased sharply with the development of genetically modified glyphosate-resistant crop varieties.”
Several Lawsuits have stood against the Monsanto’s Roundup and many cases have been filed against the weed killer’s harmful effects on the people. You can also file the case if you or your loved one has been harmed by the Monsanto roundup weed killer. To get more information regarding this, you can head to www.monsantoroundupcancerlawsuit.com/.
The study suggests that chemical pesticides and herbicides—particularly glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup weed killer—are a major contributing factor to the rising number of non-Hodgkin lymphoma cases.
The Roundup cancer study, titled, “Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and Occupational Exposure to Agricultural Pesticide Chemical Groups and Active Ingredients: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis, was published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.
