Cancer is always scary, and receiving a diagnosis is always shocking. Most cancer diagnoses come with no explanation as to whyor howcancer happened. Unfortunately, sometimes there is a connection between a hazardous substance and a cancer diagnosis later in life. Even more troubling is the fact that the person using the hazardous substance didn’t even know there were potential complications; they simply trusted the company making the substance.
One example of this is the mesothelioma and asbestos connectionwe have written about before. Another example gaining national attention is the connection between Roundup weed killer and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
The History of Roundup and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
For decades, Roundup weed killer was widely used throughout the country on both corn and soybean fields. It had everything a farmer, on a large or small scale, needed – it was quick, efficient, and easy. However, people who had contact with Roundup as an applicator or farmer began to notice an increase in non-Hodgkin lymphoma as compared to others without Roundup contact.
Monsanto quickly purchased Roundup as complaints began to increase. Currently, there have been three juries who have been convinced Roundup was the cause of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in cases that went to court. These cases have given traction to other cases that link Roundup to non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
