RoundUp Cancer Lawyer
RoundUp cancer is not a new theory. But, recent reports suggest RoundUp causes an increased risk of developing cancer. RoundUp is a weed-killer available at many stores nationwide. Additionally, commercial usage of RoundUp is linked to the development of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Carcinogenic Chemicals In RoundUp
RoundUp has been available since the 1970s. The key ingredient in the weed killer is glyphosate. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) assess people use over 100 million pounds of glyphosate each year. Companies and people spray this chemical onto crops and lawns each year.
Glyphosate, in large quantities, is known to cause cancer. Commercial usage of RoundUp is more likely to cause cancer. Increased exposure equals increased risk. Personal residential use in smaller quantities is unlikely (not impossible) to cause cancer. But, some researches believe any exposure increases long-term health risks.
RoundUp Cancer Lawsuits
In the past several years, there have been over ten thousand lawsuits filed against RoundUp. Many believe the cases help point to a direct link of its contribution to cancer growth. Groundskeepers, landscapers, farmers, and commercial workers are the most susceptible to developing cancer. Their frequent exposure to the toxic weed killer enhances their cancer risk.
A San Francisco groundskeeper sued Monsanto, the maker of RoundUp. In 2018, he proved his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma was a direct result of exposure to their products. A jury awarded the man $289 million in damages. His success has generated thousands of similar product liability lawsuits.
Putting People In Danger For Profits
The lawsuits against Monsanto state the company knew the dangers of their product. They’ve known since the 1980s. However, the company stands adamant they are not responsible. Additionally, they deny any link to cancer development and RoundUp. But, Monsanto claims to have no knowledge of carcinogens present in their products.
Some speculate the EPA lowered the classification of the number of carcinogens in products. Lawyers believe the company is hiding the cancer-causing properties from going public. The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer has stated their findings. They found the chemical glyphosate is a carcinogen in 2015.
Have You Been Exposed to RoundUp?
People exposed to RoundUp are urged to talk to their doctor. There are tests to check for most cancers. If you do have non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, talk to a lawyer. Holding the companies who produce dangerous products accountable keeps them from hurting others.
Big settlements like the case above can force companies to change. Don’t wait too long to find a lawyer. If you want to file a lawsuit, you should do so within 12 months of your first diagnosis.
