In 2015, the International Agency for Research of Cancer released a report sharing that glyphosate, an active chemical commonly found in herbicides, is linked to Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL). Other studies show that farmworkers in the U.S. have a 60% chance increased risk of developing NHL due to their likely exposure to glyphosate.
Additionally, the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Toxicology department investigated glyphosate in 1985 and determined that it was a possible carcinogen. This means that glyphosate-based herbicides have been used by millions of users for years without the knowledge of the potential health ramifications.
Those who have been exposed to glyphosate for 8 hours or more are most at risk.
