Roundup, manufactured by Monsanto, is a chemical herbicide containing glyphosate. It is used to kill weeds that damage crops. Recent scientific studies have linked Roundup exposure to non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, leukemia and multiple myeloma.
Studies indicate workers with an increased risk of developing cancer from Roundup exposure include:
- agriculture and farm workers;
- nursery and garden center employees;
- professional landscapers; and
- other workers with occupational exposure.
