Can Roundup Cause Extranodal Marginal Zone Cell Lymphoma?

A doctor using a microscope to study Extranodal Marginal Zone Cell LymphomaYes, Roundup can cause extranodal marginal zone cell lymphoma. The widely used herbicide containing glyphosate has been linked to the development of extranodal marginal zone cell lymphoma in some cases.

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, has been classified as a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization [1].

Studies have shown that individuals exposed to Roundup may have an elevated risk of developing extranodal marginal zone cell lymphoma and peripheral T cell lymphomas.

Although the exact threshold of exposure leading to cancer remains under investigation, the data highlights a significant association.

Individuals frequently utilizing Roundup in a residential, industrial, turf, ornamental, or agricultural setting may be at an increased risk of developing cancer, including anaplastic large cell lymphoma.

What Is Extranodal Marginal Zone Cell Lymphoma?

Extranodal marginal zone cell lymphoma is a type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma affecting B cells in the body’s immune system, a common form of cancer [2].

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a condition that affects the lymphocytes in the body’s immune system.

Studies have indicated a possible association between Roundup and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, including T cell lymphomas peripheral and peripheral T cell lymphomas, in certain cases.

Enlarged lymph nodes, fever, night sweats, and weight loss are some signs of non-Hodgkin lymphoma [3]. It is important to keep an eye out for any of these symptoms.

Types of B-Cell Lymphoma

B-cell lymphomas are a group of cancers originating from B cells. The World Health Organization classifies lymphomas according to various criteria.

The subtypes of B-cell lymphomas include [4]:

Exposure to Roundup may be linked to non-Hodgkin lymphoma or one of its subtypes, categorized under B cells, including mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma.

Large granular lymphocytic leukemia is a T-cell lymphoma originating from T cells. T-cell lymphomas, including chronic lymphocytic leukemia and hairy cell leukemia, are another type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that affects T cells in the immune system.

How Is Roundup Linked To Extranodal Marginal Zone Cell Lymphoma?

A doctor talking to his patientRoundup is linked to extranodal marginal zone cell lymphoma due to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified glyphosate as a probable carcinogen [5].

Glyphosate can affect the bone marrow, leading to the development of certain types of cancer.

Robust research has firmly established a correlation between Roundup exposure and the heightened risk of extranodal marginal zone cell lymphoma and peripheral T cell lymphomas in specific scenarios. 

“A study published in the journal Cancer found that people who were exposed to roundup were more likely to develop EMZL than those who were not exposed.”
Lianne Sheppard, Professor in The Departments of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences and Biostatistics at the University of Washington

Roundup Lawsuits Eligibility

Eligibility for Roundup lawsuits may depend on factors such as occupational exposure and environmental exposure to the herbicide.
