Injured with defective Roundup Product?
Roundup® is a popular weed killer product used by millions of farmers, landscapers, and homeowners. Roundup® was first introduced to the market in 1974 by Monsanto, and quickly became a popular herbicide that was marketed as a safe and effective product. Research shows that the manufacturer Monsanto knew about the potential link between Roundup® and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, but failed to warn consumers and users of the risks. Glyphosate is a main ingredient in the weed killer and has been linked to multiple forms of blood cancer in humans.
Labeled as one of the most popular weed and grass killers, Roundup® can even become more carcinogenic when mixed with other ingredients. The most common form of cancer linked to exposure of this mixture is Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is a form of cancer that affects the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is part of the immune system. The cells in one's lymphatic system begin to grow abnormally spreading beyond the lymphatic system. As cancer progresses it compromises your body’s ability to fight infection.
Depending on the type of lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma can grow and spread at different rates throughout the body.
Symptoms of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
Enlarged lymph nodes
Shortness of breath or cough
There have been hundreds of lawsuits filed against Monsanto claiming the company was aware of the link between Roundup® and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and failed to warn consumers.
