Roundup and Lymphoma

Roundup was associated with higher rates of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in three studies of farm-workers in the U.S., Canada, and Sweden. It has also been shown to cause blood cancer in rat and mouse studies. Based on this evidence, it was classified as a “probable human carcinogen” by an agency of the World Health Organization (WHO).

What Chemicals Are in Roundup?

Monsanto insists that glyphosate, the weed-killing chemical in Roundup, is safe for people. However, there is no argument that other ingredients in Roundup like POEA are toxic. POEA helps glyphosate penetrate into plants, animals, and humans.

What is the problem?

Experts say the combination of POEA makes glyphosate more toxic than it would be on its own. Another problem is that some studies show that glyphosate accumulates in leaves, grains, fruit, and tissues of animals like dairy cows and rabbits. The resides of Roundup cannot be washed off or destroyed by cooking, freezing, drying, or processing.

What is Mantle Cell Lymphoma?

Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL) is a rare blood cancer that occurs when white blood cells called B-cell lymphocytes grow out of control. Mantle cell lymphoma is an aggressive, fast-growing type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that occurs in 6% of all new cases. About 4,200 new cases are diagnosed every year in the U.S.

Symptoms of MCL

  • Loss of appetite
  • Unexplained weight-loss
  • Fever
  • Night sweats
  • Abdominal pain or bloating
  • Feeling of “fullness” (enlarged liver or spleen)
  • Pain
  • Fatigue

Complications of Lymphoma

MCL starts in cells on the outer edge of a lymph node, called the “mantle zone.” It often spreads to the bone marrow, liver, or intestines. Cancerous B-cells crowd out healthy cells, which causes low blood counts. This increases the risk of infections, bleeding, and fatigue.

Diagnosis & Tests

MCL is mostly diagnosed in men who are in their mid-60s. Most people are diagnosed with a late-stage disease, but some cases are caught early when a blood test comes back abnormal. Lymph node biopsies (tissue samples) are necessary for a conclusive diagnosis.

Treatment Options

Treatment is challenging, but the prognosis for patients with MCL has improved in the last few decades. In some studies, patients survived longer when they received autologous stem-cell transplantation along with chemotherapy and radiation therapy during their initial treatment.
