Roundup, a weed killer used by gardeners, landscapers, and farmers alike has been found to cause cancer. In 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer announced its findings that glyphosate-based herbicides, the most popular of which is Roundup, are probable carcinogens. Roundup cancer includes non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and leukemia.
As nations around the globe issue Roundup cancer warnings and bans, Monsanto insists the product is safe. Critics say Monsanto officials have likely known of the Roundup cancer connection for decades. Department of Justice and FDA investigations have revealed Monsanto’s role in fraudulent Roundup safety testing that produced falsified results. In 2015, Roundup and its companion products brought in a majority of the company’s $15 billion in global sales. Plaintiffs in Monsanto Roundup lawsuits say the company chose profits over human life by concealing the Roundup cancer risk from consumers.
Roundup has been in wide use in home and commercial settings throughout the United States since the product was first released by Monsanto for sale in 1974. Believing it was safe, many Americans have inadvertently exposed themselves to the Roundup cancer risk at no fault of their own.
If you or a loved one has suffered from a cancer diagnosis following exposure to Roundup, you may be eligible to file a Roundup cancer lawsuit.
