Roundup is a weed killer used to control weeds and grasses that are undesirable, either for their looks or their potential to damage neighboring crops. The main chemical at work is glyphosate, which Monsanto has been using for over 40 years in their products.
Long-term exposure to this chemical has been linked to a number of cancer forms, and recent investigations have shown that Monsanto has ignored this for decades.
Risks of Long-Term Exposure
Prolonged exposure to Roundup causes serious injuries and illnesses. In most cases, the people that are primarily exposed and at risk are those who work on landscapes, farms, garden centers, and nurseries.
Long-term exposure to Roundup can cause harmful conditions including:
- Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
- Multiple Myeloma
- B-cell Lymphoma
Each of these are potentially deadly conditions that will require years of harsh treatments. If you or a loved one have sustained injuries because you were exposed to Roundup, you have the right to seek compensation for the damages caused.
Understanding Monsanto’s Responsibility
Monsanto is one of the largest corporations in the world, earning nearly $5 billion in revenue from Roundup in 2015. Roundup has been aware of the dangers their products, and they have taken deliberate steps to avoid recalls to continue making profit.
Recent investigations have shown that Monsanto has:
- Known about the cancer links for over 30 years
- Refused to warn the public about the dangers
- Misrepresented the product as safe and non-toxic to people
- Manipulated data intentionally to show that it is non-toxic
These actions are unconscionable, and certainly will not go unanswered. If you’ve been exposed to Roundup over a long period and were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, we want you to know that restitution is available with the help of our firm.
