Lawyers for Roundup Cancer Claims: Free Case Review

The product liability lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential class action lawsuits and individual injury cases for individuals diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma or other cancers that may have been caused by side effects of Roundup.

In early 2015, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Agency for Research on cancer (IARC) warned that the weed killer glyphosate was a probable carcinogen.

As a result of Monsanto’s failure to adequately warn about the potential cancer risk, financial compensation may be available through a Roundup lawsuit for individuals diagnosed with:

  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  • Multiple Myeloma
  • Leukemia
  • Other Cancers

To review whether you or a loved one may be eligible to pursue a claim, request a free consultation and claim evaluation.

REVIEW A ROUNDUP LAWSUIT

What Is Roundup Ready?

Roundup is the world’s most widely used herbicide for killing weeds and grass.

Manufactured and distributed by Monsanto since the 1970s, the main ingredient is glyphosate (N-(phosphonomethyl0glycine), a broad-spectrum herbicide.

Monsanto has capitalized on glyphosate by genetically engineering glyphosate-resistant crops, known as “Roundup Ready”. However, weeds also become resistant over time, meaning farmers need to use more and more glyphosate to have the same effect, thus constantly increasing their exposure.

For years concerns have existed about a risk of cancer from herbicides and weed killers, specifically non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  However, recent reports have suggested that many cancers suffered by agricultural workers may have been caused by side effects of Roundup exposure.

Roundup Cancer Risk

Monsanto lost patent protection on glyphosate in 2000, and a large number of herbicides now use it as an active ingredient, including:

  • Roundup
  • Ortho Groundclear
  • KleenUp
  • Aquamaster
  • Sharpshooter
  • StartUp
  • Touchdown Total
  • Traxion
  • Vector
  • Vantage Plus Max II

Roundup Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Cancer Risk

Studies have linked the general use of pesticides and herbicides to an increased risk of lymphatic cancer, which attacks the lymphatic system.

The lymphatic system is a key part of the immune system and helps carry nutrients to cells. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is the most common type of lymphatic cancer, or lymphoma.

Symptoms of non-Hodgkins Lymphoma from Roundup exposure may include:

  • Swollen Lymph Notes (in Neck, Armpits or Groin)
  • Abdominal or Chest Pain
  • Trouble Breathing or Coughing
  • Fever and Night Sweats
  • Fatigue
  • Sudden Weight Loss

A review published by the World Health Organization’s IARC in May 2015 in The Lancet Oncology looked at studies on humans and mice exposed to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup and other popular weedkillers.

Three human studies were included in the review, including one study in the U.S. in 2003, one in Canada in 2001, and one in Sweden in 2008. All three appear to suggest that there may be an increased risk of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma from Roundup or glyphosate exposure among humans.  As a result the WHO declared in 2015 that Roundup is a probably carcinogen.

In addition, glyphosate has been detected in the blood and urine of agricultural workers and other studies IARC investigated indicated that it caused DNA and chromosomal damage in mammals, as well as in human and animal cells in the womb.

In animal tests, IARC researchers found that mice exposed to glyphosate developed skin tumors, renal tubule carcinoma, as well as pancreatic islet-cell adenoma.
