Monsanto’s Roundup Tied to Blood Cancers

Roundup and Cancer – What They Knew, When They Knew It

If you look in your garage or visit any local garden center, you’ll more than likely find the weed killer Roundup. It has become the standard for easy yard maintenance and is used on the majority of crops for the foods that we eat. However, more evidence is supporting the link between Roundup and cancer.

What They Knew

A report was published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health which conclusively stated that after studying 44 individual research projects, they determined that Roundup (glyphosate) contributed to double the risk of developing Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) – a type of cancer that affects the blood – in those who were consistently exposed to it such as farmers and groundskeepers. These scientists who work in the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) Section of Environment and Radiation in Lyon, France, determined that these pesticides caused genetic mutations in white blood cells which weakens the body’s immune system to fight off this disease.

When They Knew It

Roundup is made by Monsanto and has been sold commercially since 1974 in which they told the public that their product is “no more toxic than table salt”. However, in the 1980’s Roundup was linked to a group of poisonings in Japan, in the 1990’s Roundup was cited as the cause for birth defects in multiple studies and the above French report was published in 2014. Additionally, the State of California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) posted a notice on its website on April 7, 2017 that “glyphosate (CAS No. 1071-83-6) would be added to the list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer.”

Here’s the bottom line: Monsanto has known for DECADES that their product has lethal adverse effects, and yet they still deny these claims and fail to warn the public of the potential for cancer.

What Can You Do?

If you or a loved one used Roundup on a regular basis and was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, you may be able to make a claim. Monsanto has known for over 30 years that their product is dangerous, and yet they not only fail to warn customers of the potential for harm, but they mislead the public to believe that it is extremely safe. If you or a loved one suffered from cancer after using Roundup, you inevitably have suffered and have accumulated high medical bills and other debt associated with treatment for this disease.

Roundup Warnings In The News

BREAKING (8/10/18): Monsanto Owes $289M In Landmark Roundup Cancer Trial

A California jury held Friday that Monsanto’s Roundup and Ranger Pro herbicides contributed to a school groundskeeper’s lymphoma and slapped the company with a combined $289 million in compensatory and punitive damages in a landmark suit against the agricultural giant, which has denied links between its herbicides and cancer for decades.

After three days of deliberating, a unanimous 12-member jury found that Monsanto’s herbicides were unsafe and were a substantial factor in causing harm to plaintiff DeWayne “Lee” Johnson. The jury also found that Monsanto had failed to adequately warn customers of the risks associated with its Roundup and stronger Ranger Pro products, and that the company acted with malice or
oppression.

BREAKING (8/2/18): New York Toxicologist Proves Roundup Causes Cancer in Current San Francisco Trial

In the current trial involving Monsanto’s Roundup versus former groundskeeper DeWayne Johnson, evidence was presented that glyphosate shows a strong link to cancer. Hopefully these findings will finally hold Monsanto accountable for putting the health of countless people at risk.

Johnson was a groundskeeper for the school district in Benicia, a suburb near San Francisco, and would regularly spray Roundup as part of his job averaging about 150 gallons of Roundup 20 to 30 times a year. During the four years that he was employed in this position, he started to develop rashes and lesions. Soon after, he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a specific type of blood cancer.

7/25/18: Monsanto Trial: Toxicologist Explains to Jury How Monsanto Colluded With EPA

 

The plaintiff, Dewayne Johnson, a 46-year-old former school groundskeeper who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma four years ago, claims Monsanto hid evidence that the active ingredient in its Roundup herbicide, glyphosate, caused his cancer.

This is the first case to go to trial among hundreds of lawsuits alleging Roundup caused non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The trial is expected to last about a month. (Read recap).

6/18/18: Roundup Trial to Start This Week

Monsanto, makers of the controversial weedkiller Roundup, is once again centerstage as they struggle to prove the safety of their product in a bellwether-like trial being held in California Superior Court, San Francisco.

This case centers around Lee Johnson, a 46-year old groundskeeper who worked for the school district of Benicia (located in the San Francisco Bay Area). His job required him to mix hundreds of gallons of Roundup and by July 2014, just two years after starting the job, Johnson was diagnosed with a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a cancer that has been linked to the use of glyphosate, the main ingredient found in Roundup. Even after completing chemotherapy and other treatments, Johnson recently received the painful news from his oncologist that he has only six months to live.

6/27/17: California Is Adding a Chemical Found in Monsanto's Roundup Weed Killer to Its List of Cancer-Causing Agents

 

 

Glyphosate, an herbicide and the active ingredient in Monsanto Co’s popular Roundup weed killer, will be added to California’s list of chemicals known to cause cancer effective July 7, the state’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) said on Monday.

Monsanto vowed to continue its legal fight against the designation, required under a state law known as Proposition 65, and called the decision “unwarranted on the basis of science and the law.”

7/13/17: Does the World’s Top Weed Killer Cause Cancer? Trump’s EPA Will Decide

Far from settling the matter, eight of the 15 experts expressed significant concerns about the EPA’s benign view of glyphosate, and three more expressed concerns about the data. Their skepticism also raised, again, questions about the independence of the Office of Pesticide Programs, which has the final say on permitting pesticides. The office relies on pesticide manufacturers for the data it uses in making health decisions—and got almost 30 percent of its operating budget from the industry last year.

Damaging Effects of Roundup (and Its Active Ingredient Glyphosate)

Glyphosate accumulates in the food portion of Roundup Ready plants, for which allowable residue herbicide thresholds have been increased by up to 200-fold. Glyphosate exposure has been linked to sterility, hormone
disruption, abnormal and lower sperm counts, miscarriages, damaged human embryonic and placental cells, placental cell death, birth defects, and cancer. It is also toxic and lethal to amphibians.

Filed Roundup Complaints & Damages

7/19/17: Poulson et al v. Monsanto Company

The IARC Working Group classified glyphosate as a Group 2A herbicide, which means that it is probably carcinogenic to humans. The IARC Working Group concluded that the cancers most associated with glyphosate exposure are non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other haematopoietic cancers, including lymphocytic lymphoma/chronic lymphocytic leukemia, B-cell lymphoma, and multiple myeloma.

6/20/17: Blitz, Thomas et al v. Monsanto Company et al

Monsanto labels, advertises, and promotes their retail Roundup® products, including but not limited to their Roundup® “Garden Weeds” Weed & Grass Killer products(“Roundup” or “Roundup Products”),1 with the false statement that Roundup’s active ingredient, glyphosate, targets an enzyme that is not found “in people or pets.”

However, this claim is false, misleading, and deceptive, as the enzyme that glyphosate targets is found in people and pets—specifically, in beneficial gut bacteria critical to their health and wellbeing, including their immune system, digestion, allergies, metabolism, and even their brain function.

11/7/16: Randall Dean Seidl v. Monsanto Company

For nearly 40 years, farms across the world have used Roundup® without knowing of the dangers its use poses. That is because when Monsanto first introduced Roundup®, it touted glyphosate as a technological breakthrough: it could kill almost every weed without causing harm either to people or to the environment. Of course, history has shown that not to be true. According to the WHO, the main chemical ingredient of Roundup®—glyphosate—is a probable cause of cancer. Monsanto assured the public that Roundup® was harmless. In order to prove this, Monsanto has championed falsified data and has attacked legitimate studies that revealed Roundup®’s dangers. Monsanto has led a prolonged campaign of misinformation to convince government agencies, farmers and the general population that Roundup® is safe.

9/8/16: Harris et al v. Monsanto Company et al

This is an action for damages suffered by Plaintiffs as a direct and proximate result of Defendants’ negligent and wrongful conduct in connection with the design, development, manufacture, testing, packaging, promoting, marketing, advertising, distribution, labeling, and/or sale of the herbicide Roundup, containing the active ingredient glyphosate.

Plaintiffs maintain that Roundup and/or glyphosate is defective, dangerous to human health, unfit and unsuitable to be marketed and sold in commerce, and lacked proper warnings and directions as to the dangers associated with its use. Plaintiffs’ injuries were avoidable.

3 Crazy Facts About Pelvic Mesh That You Should Know

Just two years ago, I had a totally different perspective on how the FDA works and the amount of testing that goes into ensuring that drugs and medical devices are safe. I trusted my doctor to give me the prescription or advice that would best address my problems because I’m not the one who went to medical school. Now don’t get me wrong: I’m not an extremist who thinks all drugs are bad and all doctors are too busy to care. (Living with chronic pain and infertility, I’ve had my share of the good and bad of the medical world.) What I do believe is that as individuals, we have to educate ourselves to ensure that we’re getting the optimal treatments possible – and part of that is weighing the risks and benefits to the medications we take and the procedures we may have. One example is that of transvaginal mesh (which is also called TVM or “pelvic mesh”). If you have TVM, if you’re considering having TVM, or if you want to learn more about the indiscrepancies of the FDA and big pharmaceutical companies, keep reading.

5 Little-Known Facts About Essure

Approximately 60% of all women of reproductive age are currently using a contraceptive method. Nearly 1 million worldwide chose to use Essure (now pulled from market) as a permanent option for birth control because it sounded like a good decision: it didn’t use hormones, it’s an easy procedure with little to no downtime, and Essure’s brochure boasted that is was “the most effective method of permanent birth control available” — 99.74 percent. Sounds great, right? Unfortunately, tens of thousands of women have had severe complications due to this medical device.
