Cancers caused by Round Up Weed Killer

An online journal Mutation Research/Reviews in Mutation Research by has scientifically proved that Roundup increases the rate of different types of cancers in the human body up to 41% (Holtz, 2019). Monsanto does not accept the accusations against their company and they provided their own reasons to prove their product guilt-free and also they have got the favor of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). But the IARC has clinically proved them wrong and has concluded that the product causes cancer in the human body.

Over the past several years, its possible link to cancer has given rise to numerousallegations and counterclaims, and public health bodies disagree. The World Health Organization called a glyphosate a “problem human carcinogen”, added to its list of cancer-causing chemicals in 2017 (Edelson, 2019).

And now the question arises, what type of cancers are caused by glyphosate which is the active material in Roundup and causes cancer.

The studies and the cases in which people are suffering from any kind of cancer depicts that the most common type of cancer caused by the Roundup is non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NLH).

Lymphomas are cancer types that grow from white blood cell lymphocytes. Lymphoma affects the lymph system of the skin (frequently referred to as the lymph system). The lymph system is part of the immune system, aiding the fight against viruses and other diseases. This also helps to move the fluids into the body.

Roundup is seemed to cause other health-related problems which include:

  • Autism
  • ADHD
  • Colitis
  • Celiac Disease
  • Birth defects
  • Cancer
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Liver damage
  • Breathing problems
  • Lou Gehrig's disease
  • Parkinson's disease
  • IBS
  • Reproductive problems
  • Diabetes
  • Heart problems

The studies show that the most common cancer caused by Roundup is the non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. However, some other cancers are also there. Some of them are mentioned below which are caused by Roundup.

Prostate Cancer:

Studies show that prostate cancer in communities with high use of Roundup is more prevalent (Oppenheim, 2018). Roundup may bring other types of cancer with other diseases (Alavanja, Ross, & Bonner, 2013).

Breast Cancer:

Shreds of evidence also tie breast cancer to Roundup, as increased glyphosate exposure can lead to mammary tumors (Thongprakaisang, Thiantanawat, Rangkadilok, Suriyo, & Satayavivad, 2013).

Brain Cancer:

Studies show a relationship between Roundup and brain cancer, as parental exposure to glyphosate two years before birth can significantly increase the risk of developing brain cancer in children (Araujo, Delgado, & Paumgartten, 2016).

Clone Cancer:

A Swedish study says that clone cancer can be caused by the exposure of Roundup (Antell, 2019).

Some of the other cancers include this list is (Antell, 2019):


Pancreatic Islet Cell Tumors

Bone Cancer

Multiple Myeloma

Renal Cell Carcinoma (Kidney Cancer)

Skin tumors

Thus, the frequent exposure of Roundup can cause many types of cancers and among them, the most common is non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL).
