Roundup Cancer Lawsuits
Compensation for Cancer Victims With Roundup Exposure
First introduced in 1976, Roundup is the most recognizable brand name of herbicide. Developed by the agrochemical manufacturer Monsanto, the product’s main ingredient is the chemical compound glyphosate. While a largely common chemical used in agriculture, and although it has been maintained by manufacturers and some international health commissions as non-carcinogenic, glyphosate in Roundup, combined with other chemical ingredients, has been linked to cancer. This link has been drawn from rates of lymphatic cancers like non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma among those who use the chemical professionally, such as gardeners or agricultural laborers.
Monsanto has been held accountable for their lack of warning of the toxicity of their product; Bayer, the pharmaceutical company that recently purchased Monsanto, has paid millions of dollars in damages to people fighting cancer as a result of extended exposure to Roundup products. If you’ve been exposed to Roundup on a continual basis, watch for these signs and symptoms of lymphatic cancer:
- Enlarged lymph nodes
- Weight loss
- Swollen abdomen
- Feeling full after only a small amount of food
- Chest pain or pressure
- Shortness of breath or cough
- Severe or frequent infections
- Easy bruising or bleeding
If you’ve experienced any of these symptoms, see a doctor immediately. If you believe you’ve developed cancer as a result of exposure to Monsanto’s Roundup, contact the skilled attorneys at Keefe Law Firm for a free consultation.
