Glyphosate, the active ingredient in the widely used weed and grass-killer Roundup, has been linked to an increased risk of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma as well as other cancers.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a division of the World Health Organization, declared the herbicide Roundup (glyphosate) as a “probable human carcinogen” in March 2015. The warning was based on “convincing evidence” that glyphosate causes cancer in laboratory rats and mice. In humans, there is “limited evidence” linking Roundup and cancer, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and DNA/chromosomal damage.
In May of 2019, after less than two full days of deliberations, a California jury ordered Monsanto to pay over $2 billion in punitive and compensatory damages to a married couple who both developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma they say was caused by their many years of using Roundup products. This is now the third recent court decision involving claims that the company's Roundup weed killer caused cancer.
Roundup is primarily associated with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, a cancer that starts in the immune system nearly anywhere in the body. It is a blood cancer that grows in lymphocytes, which are white blood cells in the immune system that help the body fight diseases.
