Roundup Side Effects
Exposure to Roundup Linked to Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
Exposure to glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, has been linked to the development of a type of cancer called non-Hodgkin lymphoma (sometimes referred to as NHL). Non-Hodgkin lymphoma attacks the immune system in cells known as lymphocytes which are found in lymph nodes, bone marrow and in the spleen.
Swollen lymph nodes
Unexplained weight loss
Pressure or pain in the chest
Shortness of breath
Fever and cough
The survival rate of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is better than 50-50, but not great; after five years it is about 69; after 10 years it is about 59%. The prognosis varies depending on how advanced the lymphoma is when it is diagnosed.
