Hazards Associated with the Use of Roundup
As we mentioned, Roundup contains a substance called glyphosate. This substance had classified as “probably cancerous in humans” by the World Health Organization (WHO). The WHO made this decision after reviewing multiple scientific studies that reported on the effects of glyphosate on humans.
According to these scientific studies, glyphosate could increase the odds that you will develop several different forms of cancer. This includes, primarily, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Note that you could be exposed to dangerous amounts of Roundup in several ways. You do not have to be using the product to be exposed to glyphosate. In some cases, you could develop cancer if you:
- Were close to someone else who was using the product
- Mixed the chemical up so someone else could apply it
- Cleaned up a Roundup spill
- Ate or drank something that had been in close proximity to glyphosate
If you believe that you were exposed to a dangerous amount of glyphosate through Roundup, you can make a claim to seek compensation for your losses.
Understand Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in Westbury
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma impacts your lymphatic system. You rely on your lymphatic system to fight off infections and diseases. You could become ill if your lymphatic system stops functioning properly due to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
There are many symptoms that could indicate that you have non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Speak with a doctor if you have swollen lymph nodes that are not tender, swelling in your abdomen, chest pain, a fever, or unexplained weight loss.
There are treatment options available for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. As with any form of cancer, early detection is key when it comes to helping you recover. However, the treatments for cancer are often very expensive.
Fortunately, the makers of Roundup could be held liable for causing your illness. If they are found to be responsible for your cancer, they will have to cover the costs of your medical treatments, lost wages at work, and more.

While Bayer did not produce the Roundup that contained glyphosate, they could still bear responsibility for the actions of the company they purchased.
