What Is the Problem With Roundup?
The active ingredient in Roundup weed killers and herbicides is glyphosate. Since 1985, the Environmental Protection Agency has been warning the public that glyphosate could be a carcinogen – meaning it can cause cancer – based on experiments using lab rats. It was not until 2015, however, that the World Health Organization researched glyphosate and determined that it was “probably” a human carcinogen.
Thanks to the popularity of Roundup, glyphosate is the most commonly used herbicide in the world. Monsanto has advertised Roundup for farming, gardening, landscaping, and for use by both commercial and residential consumers. Monsanto even began to genetically modify some crops to be resistant to glyphosate, so that they can sell Roundup to farmers with the promise that the glyphosate wouldn’t damage these crops. Today, lawsuits claim that Monsanto knowingly concealed the health risks of Roundup’s active ingredient.
These lawsuits allege that using or being exposed to Roundup for several years can cause cancer – specifically, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and leukemia. It is also possible for the herbicide to be absorbed into the ground and deposited into groundwater, putting those who live nearby at risk of consuming glyphosate in their food and water. Consumers are demanding financial compensation from Monsanto for allegedly manipulating the information about the dangers of glyphosate to keep Roundup on the market.
Were You Impacted by Exposure to Roundup?
If you were recently diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, leukemia or another type of cancer and have been a regular user of Monsanto’s Roundup products for the last few years, explore your legal rights with assistance from a product liability attorney in New Jersey. You may be eligible for financial compensation from Monsanto’s insurance company for its dangerously designed products. Many Roundup lawsuits around the U.S. have already succeeded in giving millions of dollars to victims.
Monsanto’s parent company, Bayer, has been sued for over $10 billion to settle more than 95,000 lawsuits regarding Roundup. In 2017, a ruling on a Roundup lawsuit in California required Monsanto to label its herbicide products stating that they may cause cancer. However, Monsanto has continued to mislead its consumers about the safety hazards of its products and glyphosate in general. If you believe you have grounds to file a lawsuit or join a Roundup class action, contact our attorneys right away.
