Roundup. Killing weeds? Or killing people? 

Roundup is a weedkiller created in the ’70s by The Monsanto Company. Initially, Roundup was created to help kill weeds in gardens, lawns, and farms. One of the main ingredients in Roundup is glyphosate. Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide and crop desiccant. Roundup and glyphosate have been linked to cancer, birth defects, and many other health problems. 

So, What types of cancer does Round up cause? 

Multiple studies have found a connection with Roundup to Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Leukemia, and B-cell Lymphoma.

Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a cancer that starts in your lymphatic system. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is more common than the other general type of lymphoma.

Signs and symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma may include, for example:

  • Painless, swollen lymph nodes in your neck, armpits, or groin

Leukemia is the cancer of the body’s blood-forming tissues, including the bone marrow and the lymphatic system. The symptoms vary, depending on the type of leukemia. 

Common leukemia signs and symptoms include, for example:

  • Fever or chills
  • Persistent fatigue, weakness
  • Frequent or severe infections
  • Losing weight without trying
  • Swollen lymph nodes, enlarged liver or spleen
  • Easy bleeding or bruising
  • Recurrent nosebleeds
  • Tiny red spots in your skin (petechiae)
  • Excessive sweating, especially at night
  • Also, bone pain or tenderness (2)

B-cell Lymphoma

B-cell Lymphoma is a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma with some variations. This is a rare type of cancer that begins in the white blood cells and attacks the skin. 

Common B-cell lymphoma symptoms may include, for example:

  • Enlarged lymph nodes. 
  • Night sweats.
  • Fever.
  • Unexplained weight loss.
  • Fatigue.
  • Appetite loss.

With millions of users, the possibility of getting sick from using Roundup is very high. People most at risk for example are:

  • Farm Workers

  • Nursery Employees 
  • Also, Landscapers  

Overall, over a hundred thousand people have been affected by Roundup, and the number grows every year.
