Our dedicated staff is well-versed in all of the recent litigations surrounding Round-up, including a $289 million payout awarded to a San Francisco resident who was exposed to the product.

To understand the full scope of this issue, it’s important to note how widely used the chemicals found within Roundup are in the modern agricultural industry. They are routinely sprayed on crops across the country and are also extensively used in gardens, orchards, nurseries, and even private residences.

Roundup Diseases and Illnesses
For years now, Roundup has been linked to numerous adverse health conditions, and recently, world organizations have been warning against repeated exposure to glyphosate, the chemical component found within the product.
In fact, the Argentinian Federation of Health Professionals recently released a statement disclosing several additional risks carried by the chemical stating that “glyphosate not only causes cancer. It is also associated with increased spontaneous abortions, birth defects, skin diseases, and respiratory and neurological disease.”
New allegations point to the possibility that Monsanto may have been aware of these and other potential health hazards associated with their product lineup as far back as the 1980s. The company was the first to synthesize glyphosate, ultimately going on to patent its use in their herbicide products. While these chemical solutions were predominantly marketed to farmers and other agriculture industry workers, many of them have been commonly used in a household setting as well.
Over the last several years, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has released several new studies regarding the potential carcinogenic properties of Monsanto’s Roundup, and according to the World Health Organization-affiliated group, those findings paint the products as being probable candidates for a link to Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, as well as other cancerous diseases.
Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is a specific form of cancer that develops within the lymphatic system. Your lymphatic system is responsible for helping your body ward off other diseases, and Lymphoma usually involves one or several tumor-like growths in or around the lymph nodes. As recently as 2017, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment announced that glyphosate will soon be added to their internal list of products known to cause cancer. While this would not incur an outright ban on sales of the Round-up in the state, it would be a clear warning to consumers about the potential dangers that they face when using it. Monsanto, for their part, are fighting this classification, stating that there is no basis for the warning and that it would negatively impact their financials.
