Did You Develop Cancer After Exposure to Roundup Weed Killer?
Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma or another type of cancer from the use of Roundup? We want to help!
Monsanto introduced Roundup in the 1970’s as a weed killer that was safe for crops, people and the environment. Roundup quickly became a success and has since been widely used for both commercial and personal lawn care.
In 2015, the World Health Organization declared glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, as a probable carcinogen to humans. California since added glyphosate to it’s list of cancer causing items and many countries have banned the substance.
Health Risks of Roundup
Research conducted by The International Journal of Cancer confirmed that those exposed to Roundup on a regular basis were twice as likely to develop non-Hodgkins lymphoma, a blood cancer. While this cancer is the most commonly contracted disease from those effected by glyphosate, it has also been known to cause other illnesses.
Roundup has been linked to the following illnesses and diseases:
- B-cell lymphoma
- Multiple myeloma
- Non-Hodgkins lymphoma
Individuals who have been exposed to Roundup on a daily basis, such as farm workers, face the highest risk, but anyone exposed to it could potentially be effected. Activities such as mixing the herbicide solution, cleaning it up, spraying it, having it sprayed onto you, breathing in the spray, or eating or drinking something exposed to it can be risky.
Monsanto has denied these claims even as internal documents have shown they knew the product may be unsafe. Verdicts are being handed down against Monsanto since it appears they placed their desire for profits before consumer safety.
