First of all, it is important to distinguish the difference between pesticides and herbicides. A pesticide is a chemical that is used to essentially kill or dispose of “pests” like insects, snails, slugs, fungus, bacteria, etc. An herbicide is a chemical used to kill unwanted plants such as weeds. Some types of herbicides will kill all types of plants while there are others designed to target specific species of unwanted plants.
Round-Up® is one of the most popular and widely used herbicides in the United States and is designed to control and kill weeds. It was first produced in 1976 and is currently manufactured by Monsanto Corporation. Millions of consumers have used Round-Up® and its related products around their homes for the past 45 years.
While Round-Up® is popularly used on home gardens and lawns, it has also been known to be used on millions of acres of farmland to help control weeds around crops.
Unfortunately, within the past few years, Round-Up® was found to contain glyphosate which is an active, harmful chemical that has been found by the International Agency for Research on Cancer to cause cancer after exposure to it.
Those who have regularly worked with Round-Up® for their jobs—such as groundskeepers, gardeners and farmers–are at an increased risk for adverse side effects and health issues from exposure to glyphosate in Round-Up®.
Health Problems Related to Round-Up® Exposure
Numerous studies have been conducted on glyphosate. In fact, the link to it causing Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, a form of blood cancer, has even been confirmed.
Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma begins in the body’s lymphatic system (which is part of the circulatory system and an important part of the immune system). It can either attack B-cells or T-cells which are both white blood cells. The most common form of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma is the one that attacks B-cells.
Common symptoms of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma that you may notice before an official diagnosis by your doctor include:
- Painless, swollen lymph nodes in your
- Groin area
- Abdominal pain or abdominal swelling
- Difficulty breathing
- Chest pain
- Extreme fatigue
- Night sweats
- Extreme and sudden weight loss
It is also important to note that these symptoms could mimic those of other diseases, so you will need to speak to your doctor and seek out medical assistance to confirm which type of disease or health issue you may be experiencing.
In addition to Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, exposure to glyphosate can also cause Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and other types of leukemia.
The American Cancer Society estimates that 4% of all cancer cases will be of the Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma variety. For the calendar year of 2021, it was estimated that approximately 81,500 new cases of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma would be diagnosed and approximately 20,700 people would die from the disease.
