We are dedicated to holding Bayer liable for their failure to warn the public about dangerous side effects of continuous exposure to glyphosate.
How Roundup Causes Cancer
Monsanto introduced Roundup in the mid-1970s after discovering and using the herbicidal properties of glyphosate. Then in the 1990s, the multinational agricultural biotech company developed seeds that are genetically engineered “Roundup Ready” to withstand the Roundup herbicide, which has been used by 90 percent of soybean fields and 70 percent of cotton and corn crops in the United States.
In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC)—the cancer wing agency of the World Health Organization (WHO)—conducted an investigation into glyphosate by farmers and vegetation workers in the U.S. Canada, U.K. and Finland, and concluded that it is a Group 2A agent, meaning it is cancerous to humans.
The agency specifically linked Roundup exposure to non-Hodgkin lymphoma and various subtypes. Exposure can occur through direct skin contact or inhalation.
As of today, over 18,000 lawsuits throughout the United States that have been filed against Bayer. The company denies the allegations and claims the active ingredient of Roundup is safe for human use.
