Farmers have trusted the Roundup brand for decades, and not without good cause. Roundup swept through various countries to become the number one most widely-used herbicide in the world. Their command of the global herbicide market was untouchable, and farmers couldn’t be happier with the results. However, recent studies have shown that farmers who have suffered Roundup exposure may be in jeopardy of developing Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
How Is Roundup Connected to Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma?
After years of Roundup use, farmers began to realize that something other than weeds was ruining their ability to harvest crops. Multiple farmers claimed that Roundup was a dangerous herbicide agent, but the claims were not taken seriously until 2015. At this time, the World Health Organization conducted investigations into the adverse effects of long-term Roundup exposure. The research led WHO to declare that Roundup was a “probable carcinogen,” in other words—a cancer-causing agent.
The cause of this declaration is closely connected to Roundup’s main component, glyphosate.
In fact, glyphosate is to the development of the following cancers
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- B-Cell Lymphoma
- Multiple Myeloma
Farmers who are exposed to this compound on a regular basis were found to be at high risk of developing these conditions when compared to other American citizens. Unfortunately, anyone exposed to glyphosate could be at risk of developing a cancerous tumor.
