If you or a loved one has developed lymphoma, leukemia or cancer after exposure to Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, you may have legal grounds to file a Roundup cancer lawsuit. Trusting that Roundup was safe, millions of gardeners, landscapers, and farmers throughout the nation use Roundup, unknowingly exposing themselves to a carcinogen. Roundup lawsuits aim to hold Monsanto accountable for the damage the product has caused.
Roundup was first sold in the United States in 1974, and has been the subject of numerous controversial studies over the decades. Monsanto, the global agribusiness responsible for marketing Roundup, has been the subject of FDA and Department of Justice investigations and Roundup lawsuits for funding falsified studies. In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC, a branch of the World Health Organization), reclassified Roundup as a "probable carcinogen", prompting bans, Roundup cancer warnings, and a flurry of Monsanto Roundup lawsuits.
Studies show that persons who use Roundup, required by their occupation or for home gardening, experience higher rates of certain forms of cancer than the general public. Additionally, persons exposed to Roundup have higher traces of the substance in their blood and show signs of DNA changes that are consistent with cancer development, according to research. Roundup is the most used herbicide in the world, and countless Americans who have been exposed to the risk of Roundup cancer now have legal grounds to file Roundup cancer lawsuits against Monsanto.
Even in light of pending Roundup lawsuits and global Roundup bans and warnings, Monsanto officials persist in claiming Roundup cancer risks are fictional. Monsanto Roundup lawsuits serve the dual purpose of providing compensation to families who have been harmed by this dangerous herbicide, and exerting pressure over one of the largest agricultural corporations in the world to prioritize consumer safety over profits. Roundup garnered nearly a third of Monsanto's $15 billion in sales in 2015; a majority of the rest of the company's sales came from Roundup Ready crops and other corresponding products. In short, the corporation stands to benefit significantly from maintaining the perception that Roundup cancer is a myth.
Roundup cancer lawsuits are just one of many legal battles Monsanto is currently fighting around the world. The corporation has been blamed for the perilous decline of Monarch butterflies and for PCB dumping in San Diego, among other allegations. Monsanto earned $15 billion in annual sales in 2015, and paid its CEO nearly $12 million last year.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma, or another form of cancer after exposure to Roundup, you may have grounds to file a Roundup cancer lawsuit against Monsanto. Filing a Monsanto Roundup lawsuit serves two purposes:
First, filing a Roundup cancer lawsuit can achieve financial compensation for your family for the suffering, damages, lost wages, and medical expenses encountered due to lymphoma, leukemia, multiple myeloma, or another form of cancer from Roundup exposure.
Second, Roundup lawsuits hold Monsanto accountable to its consumers, pushing the global agribusiness to warn consumers when its products pose life-threatening risks. Numerous Roundup cancer lawsuits have already been filed around the nation.
