RoundUp Weed Killer Lawsuit Lawyer
If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer and have a history of a long-term use of RoundUp qualify for a claim. Continued use over a long period of time has been linked to a 41% chance increase in developing Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, a type of cancer.
Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma develops in the lymphatic system, which is part of the circulatory system. Symptoms of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma include:
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Enlarged spleen
- Itchy, red or purple bumps under skin
- Chest pain
- Cognitive functioning
Since 2015, 42,700 people have sued Bayer under this premise.
What is RoundUp?
RoundUp is an herbicide, meaning that it is a chemical used to stop the growth of a plant. It comes in a spray bottle and works by aiming and spraying onto undesired plant growth. The sprayed plant then absorbs the chemicals, which then eventually get to the root of the plant, killing it, so that it shrivels up and dies. It is typically used to treat weeds on a lawn, but it will kill plants wherever it is sprayed, so in a surrounding area, if treating for weeds, it will kill other plants it encounters too.
A Brief History of RoundUp
RoundUp debuted on the market in the 1970s. Originally, it was manufactured by Monsanto for use in commercial farming. Since its initial debut, Monsanto has made RoundUp widely available as a weedkiller for personal use. In 2018, Monstanto sold RoundUp to the drug company, Bayer. The active ingredient in RoundUp, glyphosate, has potentially been linked to causing cancer. Although other weed killers now use glyphosate too, for decades, RoundUp exclusively had a patent on it, which is why RoundUp is the target of lawsuits.
The World Health Organization has said that glyphosate “probably” causes cancer. Meanwhile, the Environmental Protection Agency has identified ways that RoundUp irritates the skin, eyes, and the inside of the nose and throat. They suggested precautions to take when using RoundUp including:
- Covering skin on hands and arms
- Covering eyes during application
- Not going in the area where the RoundUp has been sprayed for 12 hours after treatment
