To many people, the word “Roundup” is synonymous with the term “weed killer.” This is because Roundup is the most widely used herbicide in the world. The main ingredient in this broadly used Monsanto product is glyphosate, an organophosphorus compound studies reveal may lead to deadly forms of cancer.
Modern studies have found a possible correlation between people exposed to glyphosate and people who develop non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a potentially terminal cancer. According to lawsuits, Monsanto knew or should have known that Roundup increases the risk of cancer and/or lymphoma.
Victims diagnosed with cancer after being exposed to Roundup’s toxic ingredients deserve compensation for their emotional, physical and financial damages. Contact the dangerous products attorneys at The Potts Law Firm to discuss how you can recover your injuries and suffering related to your exposure to Roundup.
Damage for Roundup exposure will depend on the specifics of your medical condition and case. Damages can include financial compensation to cover:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of a family member
- Lost wages
Anyone who has used or been exposed to Roundup or other weed killers containing glyphosate can be at risk. People that have worked on farms, parks, roads or gardens are at heightened risk for exposure to these products. Migrant or agricultural workers who’ve experienced sustained exposure to Roundup are at especially high risk.
Glyphosate is the main ingredient in Roundup and a variety of other widely used herbicides.
- Breathing Roundup during personal, commercial or agricultural use
- Breathing air near an area recently treated/sprayed with Roundup
- Touching plants or weeds treated with Roundup
- Drinking from a water supply contaminated with Roundup
- Eating food grown in soil treated by Roundup
Some early signs of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma include:
- Swollen lymph nodes (neck, armpits or groin)
- Abdominal pain or swelling
- Chest pain or trouble breathing
- Fever or night sweats
- Unexplained weight loss.
