Mass Tort Injury Attorneys Helping Cancer Victims
Glyphosate is a very common herbicide and crop desiccant found in dozens of gardening and landscaping products. It is classified as a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide meaning it is used for almost any type of weed eradication. It is an organophosphorus compound, specifically a phosphonate, which acts by inhibiting the plant enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase. It is used to kill weeds, especially annual broadleaf weeds and grasses that compete with crops. Glyphosate was discovered in 1974 and sent to market as a weed killer by the company Monsanto. The product released was Roundup. Since then it has been the key ingredient in more than 50 herbicides, 14 of which are variations of Roundup. There are 8 companies in North America that use glyphosate in their herbicides: Monsanto, Dow, Cenex.Land O’Lakes, Helena, Loveland, Syngenta, Riverside/Terra & DuPont. Glyphosate is a known carcinogen and use of it can lead to numerous types of cancers such as lymphoma, leukemia, Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL) and subtypes of NHL. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or any type of cancer and you think it is due to exposure to Roundup at home or work please contact our mass tort attorneys handling glyphosate cancer lawsuits throughout the entire country.
Monsanto Roundup Lawsuits
A jury found that the company Monsanto, owned by Bayer and the maker of all Roundup variations was negligent as they failed to put a warning label on Roundup containers. As glyphosate is a known carcinogen (a compound that causes cancer) they should have done the responsible thing and had warning labels on the bottles. As Monsanto was the first to release Roundup they most likely yielded to greed and wanted to dominate the herbicide market. They are now paying for that mistake as almost 20,000 Roundup cancer lawsuits and glyphosate cancer lawsuits have been filed and Monsanto has been ordered to pay $2 billion dollars in damages.
