Monsanto’s Roundup is a commonly used weed-killer among gardeners, landscapers, agricultural workers, and farmers, and is the most widely used herbicide in the United States. However, many users are just now learning about the dangerous health risks associated with exposure to Roundup.
Recently, The World Health Organization has designated glyphosate, the main ingredient found in the weed-killer Roundup, as a “probable human carcinogen.” Several studies have identified a link between exposure to Roundup with the development of the following cancers:
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- Large Diffuse B-cell
- Follicular Lymphoma
- Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
- Mantle Cell
- Cutaneous T-cell
Monsanto continues to claim that Roundup is safe for use, but the research done by The World Health Organization proves otherwise. It is suspected that Monsanto has known of the risks associated with exposure to Roundup since the early 1980s, and failed to warn users of this risk.
