Roundup Cancer Lawsuit
Roundup is a commonly used weed killer that contains an active ingredient called glyphosate. This chemical has been linked to many forms of cancer including Luekemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. These allegations and litigations have been going on for years, however, the parent company, Monsanto, is facing thousands of Roundup cancer cases after their most current lawsuit that ended in a $2 billion verdict to a couple in California in May 2019.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency they are taking action to help make the use of glyphosate safe. They say that it is not feasible to eliminate glyphosate because it is the most widely used herbicide in U.S. agriculture. However, they are going to review the chemical and try to make the use of glyphosate safer by using more pollinator protections to help keep the crops resistant from the chemical. They say it is a difficult case because it keeps the weeds out of the crops which leads to more food for people, however, the health effects suggest that it is a possible carcinogen. With this, the EPA states that the product will likely not be taken off the market any time soon due to the fact that it is a very useful resource and helps with economic production.
The World Health Organization had put out a warning that the chemical glyphosate in Roundup was a probable carcinogen in 2015. This warning went unnoticed when Monsanto failed to put warnings or safety instructions on the product to let their consumers know of the possible side effects for years. Due to the ongoing knowledge by the company and not the consumers, there is an opportunity for a lawsuit if you have been exposed and harmed by Roundup.
