Monsanto Roundup Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
There are over 4,000 cases around the nation in which plaintiffs with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma are pressing charges against the Roundup weed killer company, Monsanto. Dewayne Johnson, a former groundskeeper at a school in the San Francisco area, took Monsanto (now acquired by Bayer) to trial and won. This case set the precedent for all others who feel they have a case against Monsanto for their non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
The claim within these cases is that the key ingredient in Roundup weed killer, glyphosate, is strongly influencing the cause of the plaintiffs’ non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. While the company says that “glyphosate-based herbicides have been used safely and successfully for over four decades,” researchers from the Universities of California, Washington and more show supporting evidence that GBH (glyphosate-based herbicides) are likely carcinogenic. Essentially, when glyphosate enters the body, cells may begin to change and multiply without dying or stopping.
Avoid the following GBH-based products:
- Roundup Precision Gel
- Roundup Ready-To-Use Extended Control Weed and Grass Killer Plus Weed Preventer II
- Roundup Ready-To-Use Weed and Grass Killer III
- Roundup Weed and Grass Killer Concentrate
This potential carcinogenic chemical increases your chances of developing non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma by 41 percent. If you or someone you know has non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and is or once was exposed to high levels of the chemical in these Roundup products, you may want to consult with a lawyer to see if you also have a case against Monsanto/Bayer.
