Exposure to Monsanto’s Roundup® has been linked to several serious forms of cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) recently classified glyphosate, the active chemical in Roundup®, as a “probable carcinogen” to humans. The IARC specifically linked exposure to Roundup® with development of the following diseases:
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- Large Diffuse B-cell Lymphoma
- Follicular Lymphoma
- Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
- Mantle Cell Lymphoma
- Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma
Approximately 70,000 people in the United States will be diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma every year. Symptoms of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma include fever, night sweats, stomach pain, chest pain, and a loss of appetite. Monsanto knew Roundup® caused cancer for several decades, but hid those risks from consumers as sales grew exponentially in the United States and globally.
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.
