Need representation for a Roundup cancer lawsuit?
Few things are as scary as discovering that a product you routinely use could be killing you. It seems like, in this day and age—with all the testing products go through and regulations on manufacturers—this shouldn’t happen often. Yet it’s exactly the situation that millions of people find themselves in as they discover that the popular weed killer, Roundup, might be causing cancer.
CNN Report on Roundup
As CNN reported in June of 2017, the state of California has officially listed glyphosate, the herbicide behind Roundup’s effectiveness, as a cancer-causing chemical. This decision comes after the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified glyphosate as “probably” causing cancer to humans.
While we might benefit from knowing this now, and accordingly limit our exposure to Roundup, this finding was released way back in 2015, which means millions of people have been unknowingly exposing themselves to this harmful carcinogen for years.
According to the IARC report, the carcinogenicity of glyphosate was established as far back as 2001 when evidence from agricultural exposure in humans was studied. It has also been found to cause cancer in lab animals and to cause other problems such as DNA and chromosomal damage in humans.
Lawsuits against Roundup maker, Monsanto, are not unusual. In 2017, close to 1,000 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma patients sued the company. In the case, which is still being fought, accusations against the EPA for helping to cover up the potential dangers of glyph have also been lobbed.
Because Roundup users were not—and still are not—being warned by Monsanto of the possible dangers from using their product, they may be liable for paying for damages associated with use of Roundup containing glyphosate.
