What Kinds Of Cancer Does Roundup Cause?

The study conducted by IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) has proved that the most widely used weed killer in the world, Roundup is one of the root causes of cancer in humans. It was introduced in 1974 by a global modern agriculture company, Monsanto to eliminate weeds that compete with crops and plants for survival.

Since its launch, it has been a part of discussions and news because of the health problems associated with its use. In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) conducted studies and came to the conclusion that 'glyphosate' the main ingredient of Roundup herbicide is "carcinogenic to humans".

That is why, the office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) added "glyphosate" in the list of chemicals known for causing 'Cancer' and birth defects, The Proposition 65 List on July 7, 2017. Although Monsanto challenged OEHHA for posting a notice regarding the listing, it failed to get stay on the order.

Glyphosate & Various Types of Cancer

If we talk about the usage, farmers use 50-70 gallons Roundup every year that means every second, a farmer is at the risk of developing cancer. Also, as per a few studies, there is a strong connection between genetically modified food (GMO) and cancer.

That means, consuming GM foods on regular basis could lead to the deficiency of nutrients in your body, which is a leading factor of growing cancer cells. Let's take a look at the types of cancer caused by roundup:

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma

Non Hodgkin's lymphoma is the form of cancer that starts when the white cells (B cell or T cell) of the lymphatic system grow abnormally. The lymphatic system is a very important part of our immune system that helps our body to fight against infections and diseases.

In the USA, as per the Cancer Statistics Center, around 20,140 people died from this cancer and around 72,240 people have been diagnosed with NHL in the year 2017. These estimates include both the adults and children.

The IARC researchers stated that, the chronic exposure to the toxic Roundup herbicide can be one of the reasons behind the increased blood cells in the lymphatic system. Out of all, the B cell lymphoma is mainly associated with glyphosate exposure.

Brain Cancer

It is the second most common type of cancer found in the children. The genetic conditions and ionizing radiations are regarded as the root cause of this disease.

According to the study conducted by Toxic Substances and Diseases Registry Agency, the exposure of both the parents to the Roundup herbicide increases the chances of brain cancer in their children.

Specifically, a couple who has potential exposure to the toxic combination for up to two years before conceiving or giving birth are more likely to have a child with a brain cancer as in this case, a child is two times more at the risk of brain cancer.

Though various studies are now linking herbicides to cancer, there are dozens of severe health problems that Roundup causes in humans including:

  • DNA Damage
  • Autism
  • Cancer
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Birth Defects
  • Heart disease
