RoundUp cancer is not a new theory. But, recent reports suggest RoundUp causes an increased risk of developing cancer. RoundUp is a weed-killer available at many stores nationwide. Additionally, commercial usage of RoundUp is linked to the development of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
RoundUp has been available since the 1970s. The key ingredient in the weed killer is glyphosate. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) assess people use over 100 million pounds of glyphosate each year. Companies and people spray this chemical onto crops and lawns each year.Glyphosate, in large quantities, is known to cause cancer. Commercial usage of RoundUp is more likely to cause cancer. Increased exposure equals increased risk. Personal residential use in smaller quantities is unlikely (not impossible) to cause cancer. But, some researchers believe any exposure increases long-term health risks.
In the past several years, there have been over ten thousand lawsuits filed against RoundUp. Many believe the cases help point to a direct link of its contribution to cancer growth. Groundskeepers, landscapers, farmers, and commercial workers are the most susceptible to developing cancer. Their frequent exposure to the toxic weed killer enhances their cancer risk.
The lawsuits against Monsanto state the company knew the dangers of their product. They’ve known since the 1980s. However, the company stands adamant they are not responsible. Additionally, they deny any link to cancer development and RoundUp. But, Monsanto claims to have no knowledge of carcinogens present in their products.Some speculate the EPA lowered the classification of the number of carcinogens in products. Lawyers believe the company is hiding the cancer-causing properties from going public. The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer has stated their findings. They found the chemical glyphosate is a carcinogen in 2015.
