Does Roundup cause cancer?
Despite repeated denials by the manufacturer of Roundup, many studies have found that people exposed to Roundup have a significantly higher risk of developing cancer. This is why the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is part of the World Health Organization (WHO), issued a statement in July 2015 claiming that glyphosate – an active chemical in Roundup – is “probably carcinogenic to humans.”
What cancer does Roundup cause?
The most common type of cancer linked to Roundup is non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. This form of cancer affects lymphocytes, white blood cells found in a person’s immune system, lymph nodes, spleen and bone marrow. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma causes abnormal growth of white blood cells and often spreads to other parts of the body. Some forms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma spread slowly (indolent lymphomas) while others spread quickly (aggressive lymphomas).
Can you get cancer from using Roundup once?
Most people with cancer who were exposed to Roundup work in the agricultural industry. As a result, they are frequently exposed to Roundup through their work. One recent study found that people with the highest exposure to glyphosate – an active chemical in Roundup – have a 41 percent higher risk of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a form of cancer.
Did you develop cancer after exposure to Roundup?
If you have non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or another form of cancer and you were exposed to Roundup, discuss your concerns with your doctor and an attorney. A Roundup cancer lawyer can answer any questions you might have about your legal rights. Thousands of cancer patients have filed lawsuits against Roundup’s manufacturer, Monsanto, which is now a subsidiary of Bayer AG, a multi-national pharmaceutical manufacturer.
What is Roundup?
Roundup is an herbicide created to kill weeds and other invasive plants. First introduced in 1974, Roundup remains the world’s best-selling herbicide. The main ingredient in Roundup used to kill weeds is glyphosate. In recent years, there have been several studies linking exposure to glyphosate with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a form of cancer. As a result of these studies, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified glyphosate as a “probable human carcinogen” in 2015. In response, France and Austria banned the use of Roundup or glyphosate in 2019. Many other countries (including Italy, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic) and several U.S. states are considering similar bans of Roundup and/or glyphosate due to serious health concerns.
What you need to know about the herbicide linked to lymphoma
Farmers, landscapers, grounds keepers other agricultural workers are taking part in class action lawsuits across the country, and the world, taking on the maker of one of the world's most popular weed killers. They are saying that the key ingredient in the product gave them cancer.
Monsanto is the maker of herbicide Roundup. The active ingredient in the weed-killer, glyphosate, is thought to be a cancer-causing chemical and has led to years of debate as to whether Roundup is safe, as its maker claims it is.
In general, you may have a strong legal case if your work or your loved one’s job involved regular exposure to Roundup and you or loved one have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or another form of cancer.
