The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared Roundup weed killer a “probable human carcinogen,” and individuals exposed to Roundup sprayed on farms, fields and even in home gardens may be at risk for a deadly cancer called non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).
Roundup is a popular weed killer that has been sprayed on nearly every acre of corn, cotton and soybeans crops grown in the United States, in addition to being sprayed in backyards, orchards, parks, and on home gardens. Its active ingredient, glyphosate, was commercialized by Monsanto in 1974, and it works by inhibiting an enzyme that is essential to plant growth and life.
A Roundup class action lawsuit is filed in California, accusing Monsanto of false advertising, for claiming that Roundup is safe for human use because “glyphosate targets an enzyme found in plants but not in people or pets.”If you believe you have been adversely affected by side effects of Roundup exposure, contact a knowledgeable Roundup cancer lawyer today to discuss your legal options.You can navigate to www.monsantoroundupcancerlawsuit.com if you want some legal advice over this matter.
Unfortunately, studies have shown that when Roundup is sprayed on fields, farms and backyards, the herbicide can also end up in our food and drinking water. The most common side effect found in individuals exposed to Roundup weed killer is non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a deadly type of cancer that affects lymphocytes (white blood cells), which are an important part of the immune system.
