Tennessee Roundup Lawsuit Lawyer
Roundup weedkiller is an herbicide originally made by the company Monsanto. This common weedkiller contains glyphosate, which has been linked to cancer diagnoses. Consumers have filed claims against Monsanto, alleging that the company continued to sell the dangerous weedkiller despite having knowledge that it was linked to serious and fatal cancer diagnoses. In recent years, the German pharmaceutical company Bayer AG acquired Monsanto and has now faced lawsuits from consumers with cancer who used the herbicide. In November 2020, Bayer failed to settle existing Roundup lawsuits, which means that federal trials will resume.
If you or someone you love was diagnosed with cancer, and specifically with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, after using Roundup weedkiller, it is critical to seek advice from a Tennessee Roundup lawsuit lawyer about filing a claim for financial compensation.
Glyphosate and Roundup Weedkiller Lawsuits
The dangerous ingredient in Roundup is an herbicide called glyphosate. According to the National Pesticide Information Center at Oregon State University, glyphosate can come in many different forms, and it is used in a number of consumer products, including Roundup. A person can be exposed to glyphosate by getting the herbicide, or a product containing it, on their skin, in their eyes, or by breathing it in when using a product like Roundup. In some cases, a consumer might accidentally consume glyphosate if it is on their hands.
Although glyphosate is not especially high in terms of its toxicity, it has long been known to cause problems even with brief and limited exposures. In a recent study conducted by the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer, researchers determined that glyphosate is a probable carcinogen that can be linked to cancer. Consumers who have used Roundup weedkiller have later been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
