WHAT IS ROUNDUP?
Roundup is an herbicide used to treat and prevent the growth of weeds. One of the most common ingredients in herbicides is glyphosate, which is primarily used to regulate plant growth and protect crops. It was first introduced to the market in the 1970’s by Monsanto and is commonly used by a range of consumers from farmers and landscapers to home gardeners.
WHAT ARE THE MAJOR INJURIES?
Recent data has presented a correlation between continuous exposure to Roundup and the manifestation of non- Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic. In 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified glyphosate as a “probable human carcinogen”. Plaintiffs are suing Monsanto and Bayer for failing to warn consumers about the dangers of using a glyphosate-based herbicide and concealing evidence of the dangers of the product to protect sales.
