Roundup Lawsuit Illnesses, Diseases, Conditions, and Injuries
Roundup Lawsuit: Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma (2024)
The main health concern associated with Roundup revolves around its active ingredient, glyphosate. Research has shown that exposure to glyphosate could lead to a variety of health issues, the most severe of which is the development of certain types of cancer, specifically non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Form of cancer that affects the lymphatic system, a part of the body's immune system. Symptoms can include swollen lymph nodes, chest pain, abdominal pain, fatigue, and fever. Numerous studies, including those cited by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), have found a significant correlation between exposure to glyphosate and an increased risk of developing this type of cancer.
But the potential health effects of Roundup might not be limited to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Some studies suggest a link between glyphosate and other forms of cancer, including skin, lung, and colorectal cancer. Other reported health risks include kidney and liver damage, endocrine disruption, and potential harm to the microbiota in the human gut.
Despite these potential risks, glyphosate continues to be the most widely used herbicide in the U.S., and Roundup products are still readily available for purchase. Many individuals may still be unaware of the potential risks associated with their use of Roundup.
