Many people use Roundup to kill weeds and unwanted grass around their property. Unfortunately, recent studies have shown that exposure to the active ingredient in Roundup, glyphosate, dramatically increases risks of developing certain cancers, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Moreover, evidence has been gathered which indicates that the manufacturer of Roundup, a company by the name of Monsanto, has known about a link between glyphosate and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and has made efforts to conceal this finding from the public. Documents have surfaced that show that Monsanto created fake data in attacking legitimate studies exposing the dangers of Roundup, and created a campaign of misinformation to convince government agencies, farmers, and the general population that its herbicide was safe.
If you have been diagnosed with a form of B-cell or T-Cell non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, including its many subtypes such as follicular lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, mantle cell lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, and hairy cell leukemia please contact us to discuss whether this might be related to use of Roundup. Individuals most at risk for developing cancer are farm workers and other individuals with workplace exposure to the herbicide, such as employees of garden centers, nurseries, and landscapers. However, anyone who has used Roundup on a reasonably consistent basis is at risk of developing non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
Our attorneys are available to discuss the specific issues that may exist in your case if you feel that your non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma may be related to Monsanto’s Roundup.
