Cases are popping up all across the United States against the manufacturer of Roundup weed killer, Monsanto.

About Roundup and the Issues
Roundup has been on the market for decades, sold as a safe way to kill unwanted weeds. It is common for household use as well as commercial. The main ingredient in Roundup, glyphosate, has now been determined to probably be cancer causing in humans by the World Health Organization. Those who have used Roundup and been exposed to glyphosate for extended periods of time have begun being disproportionately diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a form of malignant lymphoma distinguished from Hodgkin’s disease only by the absence of binucleate giant cells. This is serious cancer and Monsanto must take responsibility for their part in the unnecessary diagnoses across the nation.
It is important to keep in mind the wide range of use of Roundup. The amount of people at risk due to exposure includes, but is not limited to, landscapers, farmers or those working in agriculture, and the everyday citizen using Roundup to kill weeds in their home garden. Anyone who has used Roundup and been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma must contact Parilman Law to discuss the possibility of legal compensation from the company responsible.
