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
• Abdominal swelling
• 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.
