Agricultural Pesticides Linked to Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Pesticide Dangers

Story at-a-glance -

  • Pesticide exposure has been linked to a number of chronic and devastating diseases, including Parkinson’s, DNA damage, and cancer
  • A recent meta-analysis, which included 44 papers exploring the impacts of pesticide exposure on non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, concluded there appears to be a strong link between the two
  • Phenoxy herbicides, including 2,4-D and dicamba, are clearly associated with three distinct types of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL). The strongest evidence is reported for glyphosate and B cell lymphoma
  • Mounting research reveals that glyphosate may be one of the most toxic chemicals ever to enter our food supply. Some scientists believe it may be even more toxic than DDT
  • Carbamate insecticides, organophosphorus insecticides, and the active ingredient lindane—an organochlorine insecticide also used to treat head lice—were also positively associated with NHL
