Roundup Weed Killer has been linked to a form of cancer known as non-Hodgkin lymphoma (also known as NHL or non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma). Roundup is one of the most frequently used agricultural chemicals in the world. Since the 1970s when the product was first introduced, Americans alone have used over 1.8 million tons of the product. The popular herbicide is advertised as being safe for humans, but thousands of people exposed to the herbicide have developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Lawsuits suggest that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the product, could trigger a human immune reaction in which white blood cells are out of control, leading to this rare cancer.
Roundup is supposed to only attack plants by inhibiting an enzyme known as EPSP synthase. By inhibiting this enzyme, the plant will no longer produce essential growth proteins and will die very quickly. Because this enzyme only exists in plants, the product was thought to be safe for humans and animals. However, it appears that the product’s main ingredient can lead to non-Hodgkin lymphoma in humans.

New methods and technologies used in diagnosis and treatment of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma have helped improve the prognosis for people with this disease, but the condition is still very serious.
Roundup litigation is focused on non-Hodgkin lymphoma as the signature injury that the herbicide causes after long-term exposure. Uncontrollable cell growth due to Roundup can grow anywhere in the body and spread to other areas. This is why it is important for anyone who has been exposed regularly to Roundup to have frequent check-ups and consultations with their medical providers. If your doctor does discover that you have non-Hodgkin lymphoma after exposure to Roundup, it is important to speak to a Roundup attorney about your rights.
