The Dangers of Roundup
Roundup is a type of herbicide that targets and kills weeds and grasses using a chemical called glyphosate. Over the years, it has been used on private lawns, in public parks, in commercial nurseries, and beyond. In fact, Roundup is so commonly used for farming that it is sprayed on over 80% of crops grown in the U.S. Even if you do not consume the affected food directly, these crops could have been fed to the livestock you eat.
Studies have shown that people who have endured repeated exposure to Roundup may be at an increased risk of developing cancer, particularly non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Filing a Roundup Lawsuit
Monsanto – the company that makes and sells Roundup – has allegedly known for several years of the link between Roundup and cancer. And for years, it failed to warn the public.
Many people have started investigating just how much Monsanto knew about the potential hazards of its product. Recently uncovered evidence shows that both the EPA and Monsanto knew about the dangers and took steps to cover up the cancer risk by ghostwriting reports “proving” the contrary. Even though more than a dozen toxicologists at the EPA believed Roundup was linked to cancer, the EPA still used Monsanto’s papers to downplay the risk of cancer.
Jess Rowland, the ex-EPA official who was in charge of reviewing the Roundup case, allegedly collaborated with Monsanto to brush off the claims that Roundup was linked to cancer.
Since the public found out about the dangers of Roundup, the company has been hit with several lawsuits. If you developed cancer and have used Roundup within the last decade, you may be able to initiate a class-action lawsuit against Monsanto to recover financial compensation.
