Monsanto Roundup® (glyphosate) weed killer is one of the world’s most popular herbicides used by farmers and agricultural workers. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has recently called glyphosate, the active chemical in Roundup®, a probable carcinogen to humans. The IARC specifically linked exposure to Roundup® with development of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and other serious injuries, including Large Diffuse B-cell Lymphoma, Follicular Lymphoma, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, Mantle Cell Lymphoma, and Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma. Monsanto knew Roundup® caused cancer for several decades but hid those risks as sales grew exponentially in the United States and globally.
Juries have recently returned verdicts in excess of $1 billion dollars against Monsanto on behalf of victims who used Roundup® and developed Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and other serious injuries.
If you or a loved one has used Monsanto’s Roundup® and developed Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or one of the other serious injuries listed above, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Please contact the experts at Cooney & Conway and ask about your legal rights.
