What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Roundup Poisoning? 

Immediate mild symptoms can result from exposure to Roundup, with more serious and potentially fatal outcomes occurring over time. The effects of Roundup exposure can vary from minor skin and eye discomfort to lethal cancers such as non-Hodgkin lymphoma. It's shockingly easy to be exposed to Roundup, a widely used weed killer. Inhalation or eye contact can occur accidentally while spraying plants with Roundup. Consuming food or smoking without washing your hands after applying the chemical could lead to ingestion of Roundup. Symptoms of Roundup exposure may appear immediately or develop gradually.  

Here are some immediate signs of exposure to Roundup: 

  • Redness or discomfort in the eyes  
  • Skin inflammation  
  • Nose and throat irritation  
  • Excessive saliva production  
  • Mouth and throat burns  
  • Nausea  
  • Vomiting  
  • Diarrhea  
  • Fatalities 

Roundup can remain in the soil for a significant amount of time and is found in vegetables and other crops grown in previously treated soil, posing further risk of exposure if these plants are consumed. Glyphosate, a key ingredient in Roundup that aids plant absorption, is known for its carcinogenic properties. Additional components can amplify Roundup's toxicity. Pets or other animals that come into contact with or consume plants sprayed with Roundup before they have dried can suffer from vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, excessive salivation, and loss of appetite. 

Unraveling the Link Between Roundup and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma  

Numerous lawsuits have shed light on the alleged connection between exposure to Roundup and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a type of cancer that originates in the lymphatic system, which is responsible for combating diseases in the body. In patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, tumors form from lymphocytes, a variety of white blood cells. 

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma manifests in various sub-types, such as: 

  • Large Diffuse B-cell 
  • Follicular Lymphoma 
  • Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia 
  • Mantel Cell 
  • Cutaneous T-cell 

While some individuals may not initially exhibit symptoms of this disease, others may experience various signs, including: 

  • Swollen lymph nodes in the armpits, neck, or groin, which may be painless 
  • Abdominal pain or swelling 
  • Difficulty breathing 
  • Chest discomfort 
  • Persistent coughing 
  • Fever 
  • Unexplained weight loss 
  • Night sweats 
  • Persistent fatigue 

Despite the cancer's origin in the lymph nodes, it can spread to other components of the lymphatic system, such as the tonsils, adenoids, spleen, bone marrow, lymphatic vessels, and thymus. In some cases, non-Hodgkin lymphoma may even infiltrate organs outside the lymphatic system.

Steps to Take if You Suspect Roundup Exposure Led to Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma  

To confirm or dismiss suspicions of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, the following diagnostic measures may be undertaken: 

  • Medical History Evaluation: The doctor will inquire about your personal and family medical history. 
  • Physical Examination: The doctor will check for swollen lymph nodes in your underarm, neck, and groin areas and assess if your liver or spleen is enlarged. 
  • Blood and Urine Tests: These lab tests are conducted to identify any alternative causes for your symptoms. 
  • X-rays and Other Imaging Studies: Tests such as CT scans and MRIs can detect the presence of tumors in your body. 
  • Biopsy: A portion or all of a lymph node will be removed and examined in a lab to confirm the presence of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and determine its specific type. 
  • Bone Marrow Test: A sample of bone marrow from your hipbone will be extracted with a needle and analyzed in a lab for lymphoma cells. 

By understanding these steps, you can be better prepared for what lies ahead in the diagnostic process if you suspect exposure to Roundup has resulted in non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
