California Roundup Lawsuit Lawyers
The people who are at the most risk include farmers, people who work in agriculture in general, landscapers, and gardeners. Even the common homeowner who likes to keeps weeds out of their lawn with Roundup is at risk. Anyone who has used or still uses Roundup in their routines is at risk for developing Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and other cancers. The longer you’ve used Roundup, the more likely you are to have been affected by it.
There has been an awakening to the negative effects that Roundup has had on it’s users. A herbicide chemical known as glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, has been linked to the risk of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma as well as other types of cancers. If you find that you or someone you love has been suffering because of exposure to Roundup, then you are entitled to being compensated.

Studies Regarding Roundup & Cancer Risk
The main ingredient found in Roundup, glyphosate, has been labeled as a carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. The agency itself is a branch of the World Health Organization. While Monsanto has been disputing with contradictory statements, there is ample evidence on what the truth really is.
Monsanto itself has released information in collusion with the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) suggesting that Roundup is in no way a potential carcinogen. However, back in March, 2017, the New York Times published an article revealing that court documents may prove their efforts to be dishonest. These documents consisted of emails within Monsanto and between federal regulators. These emails support allegations of Monsanto “ghostwriting” scientific studies in their favor, though Monsanto, the EPA, as well as other parties involved are in denial.
NaturalNews.com states that there have been several independent studies that conclude something different than what the EPA and Monsanto suggest. They state that those who are or have been exposed to glyphosate or Roundup are twice as likely to develop conditions such as non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. With excessive exposure, the chances can be even more than twice as likely.
If that’s not enough, it’s important to consider that scientists have been arrested in the past for providing false conclusions on the dangers of glyphosate. Even World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has determined glyphosate to pose a potential risk of cancer to it’s users back in 2015.
In 2016, studies from Italy and Brazil researchers concluded that glyphosate exposure increases a person’s risk for melanoma. Another study published by the Food and Chemical Toxicology journal in 2013 revealed that glyphosate promotes the growth of cancer cells that are dependent on hormones.
The state of California itself has added glyphosate to it’s list of cancer causing chemicals. California keeps this list because of Proposition 65, a law which is stated to “require(s) businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that can cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.”
While the EPA still refuses to label the chemical as carcinogenic, Marion Copley (a former EPA scientist) expressed their distress with the dangers of glyphosate. Copley, unfortunately, passed away in 2014 before the IARC’s official statement on glyphosate the year after. Since then, it seems that Monsanto and the EPA are doing everything they can to keep more information from being released about glyphosate.

What Kind of Cancer Does Roundup Cause?
According to several studies, Roundup has been linked to Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Aside from that, there are also other problems that may arise due to glyphosate exposure. These include:
- Disruption of hormones
- Death of embryo/embryonic cells
- Breast cancer, prostate cancer as well as other cancers
- Infertility problems
- Birth defects
- Skin tumors
- Irritation of the eyes, skin, and respiratory system
- In farm animals; spontaneous abortions
- And more…
With that being said, it is really important to be aware of the symptoms of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The following is a list of the symptoms to look out for:
- Enlarged lymph nodes
- Swelling in the abdomen
- Pain in the chest
- Having a hard time breathing or a shortness of breath
- Fatigue, being anemic, or having tired feelings more often than not
- Sudden loss of weight
Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is a type of cancer that targets the lymphatic system. The way this happens is when white blood cells become cancerous. Any part of the lymphatic system can be at risk, which includes the lymph nodes, spleen, digestive tract, as well as bone marrow.
Over 30 sub-types of the disease exist, with each prognosis having the possibility of a wide range of outcomes. The two main classifications of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma fall under B-Cell Lymphoma and T-Cell Lymphoma, with most cases falling under the B-Cell classification.
Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma is the most common sub-type of B-Cell Lymphoma that is caused by Roundup. It is known as high-grade lymphoma as well as aggressive lymphoma, meaning that the spread can happen fast and requires treatment immediately.
Other sub-types of B-cell lymphoma that are known to be caused by Roundup include:
- Follicular lymphoma
- Extranodal marginal zone B-cell lymphoma
- Nodal marginal zone B-cell lymphoma
- Mantle cell lymphoma
- Lymphaplasmacytic lymphoma
- Hairy cell leukemia
- Mediastinal large B-cell lymphoma
- Small lymphocytic lymphoma
- Thyroid lymphoma
- Primary central nervous system lymphoma
- Burkitt lymphoma
T-cell Lymphoma is not as common as B-cell lymphoma, making up approximately 15% of all Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cases. The most common sub-type of T-cell lymphoma is peripheral T-cell lymphoma. It commonly affects the skin, is aggressive, and threatens the chance of long-term survival.
The other sub-types of T-cell lymphoma that has been found to be caused by Roundup include:
- Skin lymphoma/Cutaneous lymphoma
- Anaplastic large cell lymphoma
- T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma
Just like with any other type of cancer, it is best to get NHL treated as soon as possible and before it is spread to other parts of the body. The problem with aggressive lymphomas is that they need to be addressed quickly since they spread fast. If you believe that you are experiencing any side effects, you should immediately consult with your doctor.
