Environmental Toxic Torts
This is an urgent message regarding the weed killer, Roundup.
Since its introduction to the market in 1974, Roundup has been a popular herbicide which has been utilized for both commercial and residential weed control.
For years, Roundup has marketed their product as “environmentally friendly” and “biodegradable.” Despite these assurances from Roundup, a March 2015 report by International Agency for Research on Cancer has determined that exposure to Roundup can cause cancer because it contains glyphosate, which has been declared a “probable human carcinogen”. Specifically, the IARC reported that workers exposed to glyphosate were at an increased rate of developing Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a cancer affecting the lymphatic system. Additionally, glyphosate has been declared a “known human carcinogen” by the California Environmental Protection Agency.
A lawsuit has been brought against Roundup which includes the following allegations against the manufacturer of Roundup, Monsanto:
- Failure to properly research possible link between the weed killer and cancer
- Failure to warn about the potential risks associated with exposure to the weed killer
- Disregarding the probable risks of the weed killer
- Disregarding the safety warning of the weed killer
