What is Roundup?
Roundup is the #1 leading herbicide in America. It is a common, commercial, weed-killer used by landscapers, home owners and farmers alike.
How does Roundup cause cancer?
According to the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Cancer Research, a key substance in Roundup, Glyphosate, is labeled as a level C carcinogen. Glyphosate is directly linked to the development of cancer cells. This substance is toxic to the human body and may induce long-term, serious, health implications.
What are the health implication and symptoms I may experience?
Glyphosate has been directly linked to the development of certain cancers such as non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and leukemia. Other symptoms include, but are not limited to, fever, night sweats, and weight loss.
What are the treatments for these health implications?
Similar to other types of cancer, treatments include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and stem cell transplants.
Who is liable for the damages this product is causing?
Monsanto Company is a multinational agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation. The United States government, as well as Monsanto, knew about the relationship to cancer for over three decades and refused to step forward to inform the public. Instead, the company told the public that Glyphosate and Roundup were safe for public use. Because both entities withheld this information from the public, they are both liable and responsible for the payment of damages.
What are the current grounds for the litigation surrounding Roundup?
The manufacturer of Roundup, Monsanto, has been made aware of the harmful ailments of the carcinogen in their product; however, they swear by its safety. Monsanto has also been investigated for covering up laboratory results that indicate otherwise. For decades, Monsanto has been releasing falsified results of Roundup to the public as well as to the FDA.
Who may receive compensation?
Roundup has been on shelves since 1974. It is time to stop manufacturing this harmful product to the public. Those whom have had their health suffer on behalf of Monsanto may be entitled to compensation for their medical expenses as well as to account for the pain and suffering which they have endured.
