Roundup / Glyphosate
Roundup is a brand of the chemical compound, Glyphosate, which is an herbicide and crop desiccant, and in fact, the most used herbicide in the world. Unfortunately, while the use of Roundup is effective for crops, it has been proven that the compound is actually extremely dangerous for humans.
Simply being near an area sprayed with Roundup can cause serious health problems, and those that use or are exposed to the compound regularly can develop a variety of diseases, including:
- Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
- B-Cell Lymphoma
- Hairy Cell Leukemia
- Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
- And more
If you feel you have been exposed to Roundup or other forms of Glyphosate, you may experience symptoms such as trouble breathing, swelling in the abdomen, swollen lymph nodes, night sweats, nose bleeds, bone pain and more. If any of these symptoms arise, it’s imperative that you see a doctor right away.
In addition to people who use the herbicide, those who eat crops that Roundup is used on, or drink water that is contaminated by Roundup are also at risk. Common crops like corn, wheat and soybean have used Roundup to help them grow.
