Whether you are a farmer working in the fields to provide food for your community, working as a landscaper, a municipal park employee, or an individual trying to keep their own lawn free of weeds, thousands are exposed to Monsanto Roundup everyday. Though it is available at our local home improvement store, reports have surfaced that Roundup weed killer causes severe side effects that could lead to cancer.
If you have been diagnosed with cancer after using the weed killer known as Roundup, contact The People’s Lawyer today. The personal injury attorneys at Brindisi, Murad & Brindisi Pearlman are currently reviewing cases in which victims of Monsanto’s herbicide are receiving substantial compensation.
WHAT MONSANTO ROUNDUP &
ROUNDUP READY ARE USED FOR
Monsanto has been around since the 1970’s but grew in popularity in the 1990’s when they released “Roundup Ready” crops that resist herbicide used to diminish weeds throughout their fields. Monsanto has been around since 1901, when it was launched by pharmaceutical company agent, John F. Queeny. In 1974, Monsanto first introduced Roundup herbicide, now among the worlds most widely used herbicides. In 1996, Monsanto introduced Roundup Ready seeds, which Monsanto genetically engineered to tolerate its Roundup herbicide. Farmers are then free to generously spread Monsanto Roundup throughout their fields without the fear of killing their crops. Roundup Ready soybeans, corn, cotton, and other crops have since dominated every market in which they’re sold. In that same year, Monsanto signed contracts to license corn and soybean seeds from DeKalb Genetics and buys the cotton and biotech company Agracetus. By 1999, after an $8 billion licensing and buying spree, Monsanto became the foremost producer of genetically modified crops. In 2002, Monsanto became a publicly traded company. In September of 2012, a highly contested study finds that Roundup herbicide and genetically modified maize cause tumors and organ damage in rats. Roundup’s main ingredient is glyphosate, is a highly suspected carcinogen, and even the World Health Organization claims it “probably” causes cancer. By October of 2013, Monsanto was expanding its weed-management incentive programs, which come with cash, for farmers.
WHAT MAKES ROUNDUP SO DANGEROUS
As Monsanto Roundup is used more frequently used, plants develop a higher tolerance to the Roundup concentrate. In turn, this means even more exposure to farmers as they are forced to use more of the product in their fields.
However, Monsanto Roundup is not just a danger to farmers. Nearly 250 million pounds of Roundup weed killer has been sprayed on golf courses, driveways, commercial nurseries, lawns, and sidewalks across the United States. As researchers studied Roundup’s possible link to cancer, they found the carcinogenic ingredient glyphosate in the surrounding air, water, and food where Monsanto Roundup was sprayed. Monsanto is putting the entire community at risk.
Side effects Of Monsanto Roundup Exposure
Monsanto Roundup has been linked to various health problems. Victims have come forward with illnesses such as ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease, birth defects, autism, cancer (including brain, bone, thyroid, pancreatic, kidney, liver, breast, prostate, lung, and colon cancer) heart disease, celiac disease, chronic kidney disease, colitis, depression, liver disease, diabetes, MS, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Parkinson’s disease, and more.
Sadly, studies dating back to the 1980’s have placed links from Monsanto to cancer, yet they continue to stock our shelves with Roundup and not provide adequate warnings to consumers. Now, agricultural workers, landscapers, municipal workers and gardeners have had enough, and they are filing lawsuits against Monsanto for selling a product they were aware had carcinogenic properties and for failing to warn consumers.
