Roundup, made by Monsanto, is a popular herbicide that has been on the market since the 1970s, but some studies show that it’s not as safe to use as one would hope.
In fact, Roundup and cancer may be related–the International Agency for Research on Cancer recently categorized one of its ingredients (glyphosate) as a possible carcinogen. If you were exposed to Roundup and subsequently diagnosed with cancer, you need to contact a lawyer to discuss the details of your case.
What You Need to Know About Roundup
Studies find that glyphosate causes cancer in lab rats and possibly humans, as well. For this reason, a California judge recently ruled to require that Monsanto put a warning about glyphosate on every bottle of Roundup.
Of course, that doesn’t help the people who may have been affected by this possible carcinogen years ago. The individuals who have had the most contact with Roundup typically include anyone who has worked on a farm or in a nursery.
In general, if you’ve worked a lot with plants that had this herbicide sprayed on them, you may have a higher risk of developing cancers that include leukemia, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and B-cell lymphoma.
How a Lawyer Can Help

After all, you shouldn’t have to pay for medical bills to treat an illness that may have been prevented had the dangers of glyphosate been made public years ago.
