WHAT IS WRONG WITH ROUNDUP WEEDKILLER?

Roundup is the most widely used weed killer in the world. This Monsanto product is a very popular herbicide among homeowners, landscapers, farmers, gardeners, and groundskeepers. Its active ingredient, glyphosate, inhibits the presence of EPSP synthase, an enzyme that most (non-GMO) plants need in order to grow. Without EPSP, the targeted plants cannot produce other proteins they need in order to live. As a result, they die within a few days or weeks. Nearly all plants need EPSP synthase to survive and will die without it.

The active ingredient in Roundup is glyphosate, which is a probable carcinogen. A 2015 study published by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) showed a link to the formation of cancer ​such as Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

ROUNDUP & NON-HODGKIN’S LYMPHOMA

Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL) is a type of cancer that develops in the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is part of our immune system. It removes infections and other toxins from the blood. In NHL, tumors begin to develop in a type of white blood cells known as lymphocytes. Generally, these lymphocytes will die and then replaced with new ones. But for individuals suffering from NHL, these white blood cells do not die but instead continue to divide. This overabundance of white blood cells can have serious health consequences.

While non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer cells begin to form in your lymph nodes, they can also spread to other areas of the lymphatic system. For example, they could spread to lymphatic vessels, bone marrow, spleen, thymus, adenoids, or tonsils.

Recently, studies have shown that consumers and workers across the United States are at great risk of developing NHL. Due to exposure to glyphosate, a human carcinogen used in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer products. The companies responsible for manufacturing this product have repeatedly put consumers in harm’s way.

Treatment for NHL cancer will cost an individual and their family over $100,000 annually on average. This physical and financial toll can have a devastating impact on the lives of people and their families. This would never have happened if companies like Monsanto had prioritized the consumer’s health and safety over making a profit for their shareholders.

An experienced Roundup cancer attorney will have the skill and experience to hold these companies accountable for their actions. In addition to this, they help patients, and their families get the justice they deserve.
