Roundup Is Killing More Than Just Plants
Roundup, a highly effective weed killer produced by Monsanto, is the most widely used herbicide in the world. Monsanto owes the success of Roundup to their discovery of glyphosate in the 1970s. Products made with glyphosate proved to be extremely effective in killing most plants and began flying off the shelves.
Unfortunately, glyphosate is good at killing more than just plants. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) published a final health assessment about glyphosate outlining the dangers. When either inhaled or absorbed through the skin, glyphosate can cause serious – even fatal – illnesses. Monsanto denies the results of the report.
Trial attorneys at the Ohio law firm of Kelley & Ferraro, LLP, have already begun helping Roundup exposure victims. While this will be a major battle against the Roundup manufacturer, victims deserve to have their day in court. We have significant trial experience and negotiating power, and we will fight for those who are suffering.
What Does Exposure To Roundup Do?
The final health assessment from the IARC, which build upon years of scientific research, confirms the dangers of Roundup. Some of the health consequences include:
- Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL)
- Subtypes of NHL such as lymphocytic lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, B-cell lymphoma, hairy cell leukemia and other diseases
- Chromosomal damage to human and animal fetuses
With over 40 years of market dominance, the number of Roundup and glyphosate victims will continue to climb as more people connect their illnesses to using Roundup herbicide.
