Lymphatic Cancer Health Risk: Persons Using Roundup Weedkiller and other Weedkillers with Glyphosate Should Be Aware of a Potential Increased Lymphatic Cancer Health Risk Including a Risk of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma NHL by Texas Lymphatic Cancer Lawyer, Texas Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma Lawyer and Texas Weed Killer Cancer Lawyer Jason S. Coomer
Recent scientific studies have determined several herbicides including Roundup weed killer and other weed killing products containing glyphosate are probably carcinogenic to humans. Further, recent civil lawsuits have proven that these weed killers may cause Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and other forms of lymphatic cancer. For this reason persons who have been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and/or their family should determine if they have been exposed to Roundup or other weed killers with glyphosate. Further, people who have been regularly exposed to herbicides including farmers, agricultural workers, horticulturists, groundskeepers, commercial gardeners, ranchers, and anyone else who has regularly used Roundup or other weed killers with glyphosate should contact their health care provider to determine if they are experiencing any symptoms of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma or cancer. Some common symptoms of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma are listed below on this website.

Symptoms of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma NHL
Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is a term for various different types of cancer of the lymphatic system that results from lymphocytes or white blood cells which have undergone genetic changes. The condition presents as enlarged lymph nodes without pain, abdominal pain or swelling, chest pain, cough, and weight loss. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma can cause many symptoms, such as:
- Swollen, painless lymph nodes in the neck, armpits or groin;
- Soaking night sweats;
- Coughing, trouble breathing or chest pain;
- Weakness and tiredness that don't go away;
- Unexplained weight loss;
- Fever; and
- Pain, swelling or a feeling of fullness in the abdomen
A physician can typically diagnose lymphatic cancer including Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma NHL with a physical exam, blood tests, a chest x-ray, and a biopsy. Choice of treatment is based on the type, stage, and severity of lymphoma and overall health of the patient.

What is Roundup (Glyphosate Product) and how does it work?
Roundup is the brand name of a glyphosate-based herbicide originally produced by Monsanto. Monsanto began utilizing glyphosate as a weed killer in the 1970s. The herbicide eliminates proteins that are necessary for a plant to grow. Today it is estimated that approximately a billion and half pounds of Roundup are used every year. It is used worldwide and throughout the United States. In fact, Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide in the United States. The Roundup glyphosate products include genetically modified seeds which make up about one-half of Monsanto's yearly revenue. Beyond the glyphosate salt content, commercial formulations of Roundup contain surfactants, which vary in nature and concentration. Monsanto also produced seeds which grow into plants genetically engineered to be tolerant to glyphosate, which are known as Roundup Ready crops. The genes contained in these seeds are patented. Such crops allow farmers to use glyphosate as a post-emergence herbicide against most broadleaf and cereal weeds.
Glyphosate Exposure Lawsuits and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Cancer Lawsuits
Recently, a California jury awarded $2.055 billion to a couple who sued Monsanto alleging its Roundup weed killer caused them to develop an aggressive form of cancer after decades of treating their properties with the glyphosate-based herbicide. There are over 13,000 lawsuits that have been filed across the United States against the makers of Roundup. There have been several multi-million dollar verdicts in favor of the plaintiff that have come down with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma after using Glyphosate products. Currently, law firms throughout the United States are filing Roundup Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Lawsuits. Texas Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Cancer Lawyers are working with Lymphatic Cancer Lawyers across the United States to help families who have suffered the loss of loved ones and those with Non-Hodkin Lymphoma.
