The world’s most popular weed killer, Roundup, was first created in 1974. The main ingredient, glyphosate, was patented by Monsanto as an herbicide, though the weed killer recently came under the ownership of Bayer. Roundup enjoyed a monopoly on the herbicide market for decades, until it fell under scrutiny when class action lawsuits abounded against the product manufacturer. For years Roundup has been used in home and commercial properties via a variety of application techniques, including droppers, spray systems, injection techniques, wiping systems, and more. Research tells us that when the chemical is inhaled, ingested, or absorbed through the skin, it can be extremely harmful and may lead to the development of certain cancers.
Understanding The Health Risks
Recently, countless Roundup users have come forward with complaints of glyphosate-related illnesses, including Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and other forms of cancer. Although Bayer argues that no study has been able to prove that glyphosate is carcinogenic, both the International Agency for Research on Cancer and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) linked Roundup to the development of certain cancers. Roundup has been associated with the following health conditions:
- Acute T-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma
- Anaplastic Large T-Cell Lymphoma
- Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
- Follicular B-Cell Lymphoma
- Hairy Cell Lymphoma
- High-Grade Mature B-Cell Lymphoma
- Mantle Cell Lymphoma
- Mediastinal B-Cell Lymphoma
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL)
- Thymic Lymphoma
Anyone regularly exposed to glyphosate may be at risk, though gardeners, landscapers, farmers, groundskeepers, and other agricultural workers are the most likely groups affected. If you were recently diagnosed with any of the above cancers and you were exposed to Roundup weed killer, you may be eligible to file a claim.
