Monsanto Roundup Lawsuit
Glyphosate, the active chemical in Roundup® weed killer has been designated as a probable human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), an agency of the World Health Organization (WHO). Gardeners, landscapers, farmers and farm workers who use Roundup® or other glyphosate weed killers are at risk for developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), and various subtypes including lymphocytic lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, hairy cell lymphoma, B-cell leukemia, and others. The use of Roundup and other glyphosate herbicides has been banned or severely restricted in numerous countries. Sadly, the U.S. has been slow to respond to the findings in the 2015 IARC report, with local communities just starting to ban the use of Roundup and glyphosate. Research done for recent Roundup cases has recently revealed that the Monsanto Company, the makers of Roundup and the world’s largest producer of glyphosate, has known for decades that glyphosate and specifically their product Roundup can cause cancer.
