Cancer Case Now Linked to Monsanto Weed Killer Roundup®
When a jury found that the non-Hodgkins lymphoma a former groundskeeper is dying from was linked to Roundup®, a blow was dealt to the the agrochemical giant Monsanto. This made it evident that the company responsible for the production of the herbicide acted with ill will toward agricultural workers who use Roundup® to care for our farms, our garden centers, our nurseries, our golf courses and family friendly parks.
The decision of the jury made it possible for thousands of pending cases involving countless people to move forward, so that other men and women who have received a cancer diagnosis can seek the care and treatment they desperately need. In addition to offering hope to individuals who have developed cancer from Roundup® use, the findings also makes it possible for a surviving family member to file a wrongful death claim, should his or her loved one have previously succumbed to a Roundup® related condition.
National Roundup® Lawsuit Personal Injury Attorneys
The personal injury attorneys from Action Legal Group are seeking compensation for individuals who have handled large quantities of Roundup® and been diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma or another form of cancer. Monsanto knew that it should have included a warning label on the popular herbicide used in the United States but parties within the agricultural behemoth made the conscious decision to ignore a 2015 warning from the World Health Organization.
Why it is Important to File a Monsanto Weed Killer Cancer Lawsuit
The agrochemical giant has actively denied a link between glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup®. This denial is in spite of research which resulted on more than one occasion in verifiable proof that the herbicide is toxic to human cells.
The documents that were filed in this Roundup® cancer claim suggest that Monsanto produced ghostwritten research that was later attributed to academic sources in an effort to make glyphosate appear safe. Litigation documents make it clear that Monsanto went out of its way to attack legitimate studies. One such incident of burying the truth involved a senior official at the EPA quashing a review of the potential health impact of the herbicide.
The most deadly potential side effect charted from exposure to the main ingredient in Roundup®is the development of any of the following cancers:
- Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
- Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
- B-cell lymphoma
- Follicular lymphoma
- Cutaneous B-cell lymphoma
- Other cancers.
People at Risk for Developing Roundup® Cancer
The people who are most at risk for developing cancer from handling and application of the dangerous Monsanto herbicide Roundup® include:
- Farm workers
- Garden center employees
- Nursery center employees
- Professional landscapers.
The exposure to glyphosate occurs when an individual inhales it while mixing the chemicals, spraying the herbicide, cleaning after use of the herbicide or through consumption of contaminated food or water.
