Monsanto’s Roundup Has Been Linked Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
Glyphosate, which is the main ingredient in Roundup, has been linked to certain cancers in several studies. In 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research and Cancer announced the findings of a study that found Roundup is a probable carcinogenic. Leading experts have opined that the level of dermal (skin) and inhalation (breathing) exposure of Roundup often experienced by farmers, nursery workers and others who frequently use the weed killing product, can and does cause Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL).
Roundup is the most commonly used herbicide in the United States. Due to the frequent use of Roundup and Roundup-resistant crops, weeds in many regions have developed resistance to Roundup, leading farmers to use more of the product than ever before. Goldman, Scarlato & Penny, P.C. is representing clients who have suffered injuries relating to Roundup exposure, including, but not limited to, Large Diffuse B-cell, Follicular Lymphoma, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, Mantle Cell and Cutaneous T-cell. NHL has become so prevalent among farmers it is often referred to as “the farmers’ cancer.” Frequent and continuous residential use of Roundup, such as gardening, driveways/sidewalks, and property maintenance can also be a contributing causal link to NHL.
Although Monsanto, the manufacturer of Roundup, continues to claim Roundup is safe, three juries disagreed and several countries and US municipalities banned the product. On July 7, 2017, California added glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, to the list of chemicals that are known to cause cancer. Under California’s Proposition 65, companies that sell products containing glyphosate in the state must add warning labels to their packaging.
