Roundup weed killer is a popular product developed by agrochemical company Monsanto that has been on store shelves since the 1970s. However, in 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) determined that the active ingredient in Roundup, a chemical called glyphosate, is a carcinogen. Subsequent lawsuits and trial discoveries have revealed that Monsanto knew about the dangers of glyphosate for decades.

In 1974, Roundup debuted on store shelves and became widely used by farmers, landscapers, and home gardeners worldwide. Over the decades, it has produced billions of dollars in revenue for Monsanto, who has consistently advertised the product as safe and non-toxic. However, in 2015, the IARC report shattered this myth, definitively establishing the link between glyphosate and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) is a type of cancer that begins in the lymphatic system, the body’s network for filtering out toxins. In NHL, a type of white blood cell called a lymphocyte will begin dividing uncontrollably. The body becomes choked with lymphocytes, leading to symptoms such as the swelling of lymph nodes, fever, nausea, vomiting, pain, cognitive issues, and more.
The American Cancer Society estimates that 74,200 people in the US will be diagnosed with NHL this year, and about 19,970 people will die of the disease.
