Did you or a loved one develop any form of cancer from exposure to the weed killer Roundup? You may be entitled to Monetary Compensation.
Exposure to Round-Up weed killer has been linked to various forms of cancers by studies published by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health and many others. Despite near scientific consensus that the pesticide is harmful, Monsanto, the company that produces Round-Up, continues to sell the dangerous product, netting $4.8 billion in revenue in 2015 alone.
The controversial active ingredient in Round-Up is the enzyme inhibitor glyphosate. According to the National Pesticide Information Center, glyphosate is one of the most widely used herbicides in the United States. The NPIC also states that glyphosate works by inhibiting a specific enzyme pathway, known as the shikimic enzyme pathway, that is needed for plant growth.
Glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic to humans,” as stated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2015. This means that Monsanto has knowingly been selling a product that may cause cancer in humans since at least 2015 and perhaps for several decades.
One of the most common cancers that occurs after Round-Up exposure is Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, a type of blood cancer.
