DOES ROUNDUP CAUSE CANCER?
In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) published the results of a year-long investigation into the link between several different insecticides and herbicides, including Glyphosate and cancer. The group concluded that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic to humans.”
This weed killer has been on the market for over 40 years and has been used by farmers, as well as millions of homeowners. Due to its widespread use, many individuals are developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma as a result of the carcinogen in the product. In extensive research done by the International Agency on Cancer Research, a subsidiary of WHO, it was found that prolonged exposure to Roundup is not a necessity to cause cancer. Instead, it was found that those with as little as eight hours of cumulative exposure were at risk of developing cancer.
