Roundup Cancer Lawsuit
Innocent Americans across the country are being exposed to a potentially dangerous carcinogen, or cancer-causing element. That element is glyphosate, a herbicide which is the active ingredient in Roundup, a grass- and weed-killer sold by the Monsanto Company, based in St. Louis, MO. Persons who develop cancer from exposure to glyphosate in Roundup products may be entitled to a Roundup cancer lawsuit claiming payments for their losses. The Willis Law Firm stands ready to help these Americans.
According to a report published in July of 2015 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the chemical compound known as glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic” to human beings. This means that exposure to it probably can cause cancer. The IARC, which is the World Health Organization’s (WHO) cancer research arm, cited two large case-control studies of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, or NHL, in the United States and in Canada and two case-control studies in Sweden. It said that such studies showed statistically significant higher dangers of NHL linked to glyphosate exposure. This can be considered as a warning from the World Health Organization about the dangers of glyphosate causing Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. What is Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma? You may be wondering precisely what is Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. That disease is named after named after Dr. Thomas Hodgkin, the physician who initially described it. The disease can include: Hairy-cell leukemia B-cell lymphoma Multiple myeloma Lymphocytic lymphoma. According to the American Cancer Society, NHL is a cancer which begins in cells known as lymphocytes, which are a part of the body’s immunity system. Lymphocytes are found in the lymph nodes and in other lymphoid tissues such as bone marrow and the spleen. The ACS says the main types of lymphomas are Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, also known as Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or simply lymphoma. Those different types of lymphomas can behave, spread and respond to treatment differently, the ACS says. Patients’ NHL outcomes also depend greatly on how advanced the cancer has become when it is initially diagnosed. Whether it is high-grade (aggressive) or low-grade (indolent) is extremely important.
According to medical studies & reports including the American Cancer Society, other glyphosate cancers can also arise from exposure to the chemical include: Follicular Lymphoma B-Cell Lymphoma Other Lymphatic cancers How Much Roundup is Used? You may be surprised to learn how much Roundup is being used around the nation. In terms of agricultural-grade Roundup, such usage has risen since Monsanto introduced Roundup Ready crops in the 1990s. It is believed that in the year 2012 alone, more than 280 million pounds of glyphosate were sprayed onto U.S. crops such as sugar beets, corn and soybeans. Agricultural workers are now filing lawsuits against Monsanto, the maker of the weed killer, claiming that on-the-job exposure to glyphosate caused them to develop cancer.
