Roundup Cancer Lawsuits: Overview of Roundup’s Health Risks
Link to Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
Roundup, a popular weed killer, has been associated with the development of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The active chemical, glyphosate, has been identified as a potential carcinogen. Monsanto first sold Roundup in 1974.
Studies, including those reported by NBC News, have indicated a significantly higher risk of contracting non-Hodgkin lymphoma among frequent users of glyphosate-based products like Roundup. Agricultural workers with high exposure to glyphosate were found to have a 41% higher risk of developing this cancer. NBC News Report
