Investigating Roundup Cancer Lawsuits

Roundup’s key chemical is glyphosate which was originally manufactured by Monsanto in 1974.  In March 2015, the toxic herbicide Roundup was declared a “probable human carcinogen” by the World Health Organization (WHO).  Nearly 20 studies since 1974 implicate Roundup in a large number of problems in humans and lab animals alike including GI symptoms, birth defects, and cancers.

Millions of people in the United States and around the world have used the Roundup “miracle” weed killer, to deliver knock-out looking yards and gardens.  It is used in agriculture on both small and large-scale farming operations.  However, this convenience comes at a great price.

The persons most at risk of developing cancer from Roundup are farm workers and other individuals with workplace exposure to the herbicide, such as workers in garden centers, nurseries, and landscapers. Individuals are most likely to be exposed to glyphosate from breathing it while spraying, mixing or cleanup, or through drinking water or eating food contaminated with it.

The Case for Banning Monsanto’s Roundup

There are number of strong evidences that lead to the fact that Monsanto’s product results into birth defects and   causes cancer. The evidences also prove that it causes or exacerbates numerous chronic illnesses. Have a look at, if you are in search of legal help.

On March 20, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) reclassified glyphosate as a chemical that probably causes cancer. The IARC is a branch of the World Health Organization that focuses on cancer, and it combines the knowledge of epidemiologists, laboratory scientists, and biostatisticians.

The IARC has been affianced in cancer research for more than five decades, and its immense experience in cancer research has made the agency to declare that "most cancers are, directly or indirectly, linked to environmental factors and thus are preventable."

The IARC had previously declared glyphosate as possibly carcinogenic. Monsanto, a leading producer of glyphosate under the trade name Roundup, immediately issued a press release challenging the new IARC designation and contending that Roundup is safe.

Monsanto advocates that farmers spray their fields heavily and repeatedly with Roundup in order to kill unwanted weeds, and Monsanto's corporate strategy is based on the assumption that Roundup is safe.

If Roundup is found to be toxic, the entire house of cards comes tumbling down, and with it, Monsanto and biotech agriculture. The banning of glyphosate could mean bankruptcy for Monsanto.
