ROUNDUP WEEDKILLER

Monsanto remains steadfast in its assertion that RoundUp is not a human carcinogen, but there is a growing amount of scientific evidence that suggests otherwise. Consider legal action if you or someone close to you either worked on a farm or lived near a farm where RoundUp was used and developed a serious illness like cancer. 


Why is RoundUp Dangerous?

RoundUp is dangerous because it causes serious health complications. Health problems that may occur from exposure to RoundUp include cancer, kidney and liver disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, autism, neurological disorders like Parkinson’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, depression, and much more.


The active ingredient in RoundUp is glyphosate, an endocrine disruptor and probable carcinogen according to a 2015 study published by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). By contrast, the EPA changed the status of glyphosate from a chemical “possible” of causing cancer to one that does not in 1989.


Possible health problems that may occur from exposure to RoundUp include cancer, kidney and liver disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, autism, neurological disorders like Parkinson’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, depression, and much more.


The decision to declassify glyphosate as a possible carcinogen in the United States led to widespread use of the chemical not only in RoundUp as a weed killer for landscaping, but also as an herbicide for agricultural crops farmed for human consumption. Millions of American men, women, and children have ingested glyphosate. Even unborn children have succumbed to developmental issues after it crossed the placental barrier during gestation. 


Types of Cancer 

RoundUp May Cause:

  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  • Multiple Myeloma
  • B-Cell Lymphoma
  • T-Cell Lymphoma
  • Leukemia
  • Follicular Lymphoma
  • Burkitt Lymphoma
  • Lymphocytic Lymphoma
  • Hairy Cell Leukemia

Despite the dangers we are just finding out about RoundUp, it has been an extremely popular weed killer since it was first introduced in the 1970s. The use of glyphosate in agricultural farming of corn, soybean, wheat, and other crops in the United States has increased dramatically over the last two decades.


 

Which RoundUp Products Contain Glyphosate?

Some of the most popular RoundUp herbicides that contain glyphosate include:

  • RoundUp Ready
  • RoundUp Original Max
  • RoundUp PowerMax
  • RoundUp WeatherMax
  • RoundUp Weed & Grass Killer
  • RoundUp Weed & Grass Killer Super Concentrate
  • RoundUp Precision Gel

Other big weed killer brands that contain glyphosate are BASF, Dow Chemical (AgroSciences), Bayer (CropScience), Sino Harvest, Dupont, and Syngenta.


 

Possible Plaintiffs

  • Farmers
  • Agricultural Workers
  • Gardeners
  • Landscaping Workers
  • Nursery Employees
  • Farm Hands
  • Seasonal Farm Workers
  • Horticulturists
  • RoundUp Bottling Plants


In addition people living near farms or people exposed to RoundUp from contaminated drinking water or food may be eligible to file a claim.

 

Monsanto remains steadfast in its assertion that RoundUp is not a human carcinogen, but there is a growing amount of scientific evidence that suggests otherwise. If it is found that Monsanto knowingly withheld information regarding the health risks of glyphosate, the company could be forced to pay millions of dollars in damages.


You may want to consider potential legal recourse if you or someone close to you either worked on a farm or lived near a farm where RoundUp was used and developed a serious illness like Non-hodgkins Lymphoma
