Monsanto Faces Slew of Lawsuits over Roundup's Alleged Link to Cancer

Is Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer carcinogenic? Many think so.

If you live in Nebraska, chances are, you either grew up on or near a farm, are a farmer yourself, or know someone who farms. Such close ties to the farming industry means you are probably familiar with agri-chemical giant Monsanto, or at least some of its products. One of its products, the herbicide Roundup, has been the subject of heavy scrutiny of late. Many say that exposure to the weed killer causes cancer. The alleged carcinogenic characteristic of Roundup has prompted many to file lawsuits against Monsanto.

These lawsuits aren’t consigned to Nebraska alone. In fact, the latest lawsuit was filed last week in Delaware’s Superior Court. Last month, some were filed in New York and California. The lawsuits allege that although Monsanto knew that glyphosate, Roundup’s main ingredient, posed a hazard to human health, they continued to not only manufacture and sell the product, but participated in a pattern of deceit to convince the world that the product was safe.

“I grew up on the farm,” recalls Attorney Dave Domina. “My entire family farms and I have devoted a significant portion of my professional life to fighting for those in agriculture. It has not been a matter of ‘if’ but rather ‘when’ Monsanto will be held responsible for injuries and cancers related to glyphosate exposure.”

In March, the World Health Organization released new information about glyphosate. It was enough evidence to classify the chemical as probably carcinogenic.

Monsanto continues to maintain that not only is the World Health Organization’s estimation of the chemical incorrect, it says that glyphosate is one of the safest pesticides in existence.

This is not the first time Monsanto has come under fire for its products. The company is reportedly still fighting past claims alleging that the company knowingly manufactured carcinogens – polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

Many lawsuits against Monsanto claim that its Roundup product is harmful to human health and has the potential to cause cancer, specifically non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Farm workers predominantly use the Roundup weed killer product, but others such as landscapers and homeowners who also used the product could have been exposed to harmful levels of glyphosate.

Your time to recover for your non-Hodgkin lymphoma may almost be up – you must act now! The WHO (World Health Organization) released its findings on July 29, 2015 that the herbicide glyphosate is a probably carcinogen for humans. Glyphosate / Roundup have been linked to non-Hodgkin lymphoma. If you have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma the time to file your case to recover for your cancer may expire on July 29, 2016. You must contact a lawyer today before time runs out.

Some states have a one year of discovery rule – which means Monsanto will argue you knew or should have known of the link between Roundup and your Cancer as of July 29, 2015. If your state has a one year discovery rule your claims could be forever barred on July 29, 2016.
