The Risks of Roundup
The active ingredient in Roundup is called glyphosate, a chemical that kills weeds by blocking an enzyme they need to survive. Roundup has been used domestically and commercially, on private properties, in public parks, and even on commercial nurseries and farms. As such, over 80% of the crops grown in the U.S. are sprayed with Roundup – which means you could be ingesting it when you consume those fruits, vegetables, and grains. Even if you do not directly consume the crops, the livestock you eat could have been raised on those affected crops.
In 2015, the World Health Organization deemed glyphosate a “probable human carcinogen,” but Monsanto – the company that makes and sells Roundup – has allegedly known about the link between its product and cancer for decades.
Those most likely to develop cancer caused by Roundup are the people who have been repeatedly exposed to it, like farmers, landscapers, and garden center workers.
Ingesting or inhaling Roundup repeatedly could put you at an increased risk of developing:
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- B-cell Lymphoma
- Multiple Myeloma
- Follicular Lymphoma
- Cutaneous & Anaplastic T-Cell
- Mantle Cell Lymphoma
- Primary Central Nervous System (CNS) Lymphoma
Taking Action against Monsanto
By failing to disclose the link between Roundup and cancer when it was first discovered, Monsanto prevented innocent people from making informed decisions about whether to use the product. Today, lawyers continue to investigate the extent of Monsanto’s corporate coverup and how long they knew about the hazards. Recent evidence shows that the EPA and Monsanto worked together to cover up and downplay the risk by ghostwriting reports claiming there was no link between Roundup and cancer. Meanwhile, many toxicologists at the EPA continued to believe that Roundup could cause cancer in 14 different ways.
Several lawsuits have been filed against Monsanto since the health risks of Roundup were made known to the public.
Many of these lawsuits include evidence that:
- Roundup weed killer exposed users to glyphosate, a probable carcinogen
- Monsanto misrepresented Roundup’s safety
- The labels on Roundup fail to warn consumers about the potential health risks
- Monsanto knew that glyphosate was potentially linked to cancer
- Monsanto knew that exposure to glyphosate could increase a person’s risk of developing cancer
