Roundup is one of the most popular herbicide brands in the world. It is used heavily as a weed killer in agriculture and farming, as well as lawns, gardens, and more.
The main chemical ingredient in Roundup is glyphosate, which scientific researchers have recently found to be a leading cause of cancer.
Roundup has been linked to lymphatic cancers like non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a rare cancer that affects the lymph nodes, the part of the body that produces white blood cells. Studies also link glyphosate to chromosomal damage in cells and the formation of tumors, as found in various animal studies. In addition, research findings also relate glyphosate to other cancers such as colon, kidney, liver, pancreatic, melanoma, and thyroid.
In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) published research data that classified glyphosate stating it as a “possible human carcinogen.” Their report concluded that glyphosate exposure is most commonly associated with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Monsanto, the maker of Roundup, denied any claims that their product contained chemicals known to cause cancer.
Despite major trial losses in the chemical’s classification, the corporate giant still maintains that glyphosate is not a human carcinogen. Monsanto now faces thousands of lawsuits, both in state and federal courts, as many farmers and farmworkers diagnosed with cancer fight for compensation.
