About Monsanto Roundup Cancer
Studies have shown that Monsanto had been aware for several decades that Roundup weed killer was cancer-causing, but decided to conceal the risks since there had been a continuous rise in sales of the product in the United States and beyond.
Glyphosate, which happens to be the active ingredient in Roundup, has been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer – a segment of WHO. – as carcinogenic.
Before now, there has been uncertainty in Roundup’s toxic effect on the public due to a conflict in claims about the connection between the cancer diagnosis and the formula. Recently, the questionable manner in which Monsanto concealed the risks from the public had been unraveled through the Roundup trial cases.
Some of the discoveries made during the trial were internal emails in which personnel of Monsanto expressed worries over the growing evidence of toxicity in the product, as well as their failure to conduct a test to ascertain the carcinogenicity of its formula.
Also, the trial revealed that Monsanto had made friends within the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) for backing, and had made payments to The American Council on Science and Health for the promotion of Monsanto’s herbicides safety.

One of the side effects of exposure to Roundup is Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. It is a type of cancer that develops when so many abnormal white cells are formed in your body. Some of its prevalent symptoms include pain in the chest or abdomen, fever, swollen lymph nodes, amongst others.
