'Natural News has been warning for years that glyphosate – the primary ingredient in Roundup, the world’s most widely used weed killer – causes cancer. Though studies were published in peer-reviewed journals confirming this link, Monsanto was able to use its massive political clout and almost bottomless funds to tear these studies apart and have them refuted.
Slowly but surely, however, the tide has been turning. The first blow fell when the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced its findings that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic” (cancer-causing) in humans, particularly with regard to a type of cancer known as non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Though Monsanto’s friends in the mainstream media immediately tried to attack these findings, the scientists involved are simply too respected in their field to be ignored.
Next, the IARC findings opened the floodgates of litigation, and thousands of people who believe their health was harmed by exposure to glyphosate filed lawsuits against the agri giant. And then Dewayne Johnson won his case against Monsanto and was awarded millions in compensation.
Suddenly, with legal precedent set and the mainstream media no longer protecting Monsanto, scientific studies are once again being published confirming the dangerous link between glyphosate and cancer. One such study, published this month in the journal Mutation Research /Reviews in Mutation Research, found that high exposure to glyphosate is linked to an alarming 41 percent increase in the risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).'
