According to a long-term study on the use of the big-selling weedkiller glyphosate by agricultural workers in the United States, no link has been found between exposure to the pesticide and cancer. The study found no association between glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto's widely-used herbicide RoundUp, "and any solid tumors or lymphoid malignancies overall, including non-Hogkin Lymphoma and its subtypes”. According to the study, there was “some evidence of increased risk of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) among the highest exposed group”, but added this association was “not statistically significant”. The findings are expected to impact US legal proceedings against Monsanto, in which more than 180 plaintiffs claim that exposure to RoundUp directly lead to them developing cancer.
