Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a type of blood cancer that affects lymphocytes (white blood cells), which are essential components of the immune system. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma can occur almost anywhere in the body because lymphocytes circulate throughout the majority of the body. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a type of blood cancer linked to occupational exposure to cancer-causing chemicals such as benzene, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and Roundup (glyphosate). Every year, approximately 70,000 Americans are diagnosed with this cancer, which is often caused by carcinogens. In 93% of 43 studies on the causes of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma workplace exposure to benzene was linked to an increased risk of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
