Monsanto’s Roundup Tied to Cancer

Monsanto intentionally suppressed information from the public. Get the facts.

What They Knew

The FDA approved Abilify in 2002. In May 2015, the FDA published a safety announcement stating that Abilify is linked to several “compulsive or uncontrollable urges” including compulsive gambling. On May 4, 2016, the FDA required that Abilify have a new warning label listing the potential for these hazardous behaviors.

When They Knew It

In the early stages of testing Abilify, doctors recognized that hypersexuality, a form of compulsive behavior, was an adverse effect of patients who took this medication. However, the warning label never alerted patients to this potential problem. Additionally disconcerting is that in October 2012, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) – which is like our FDA – added a warning label to Abilify to reflect the potential for pathological gambling. Even Canada added this warning to Abilify labels before the United States in November 2015.

Countless patients around the world have been reporting that after taking Abilify, they had an uncontrollable urge to gamble.

  • In March 2010, a 64-year-old women who was taking 15 mg of Abilify reported that she couldn’t stop gambling or over-eating.
  • In December 2010, a study was published that found a link between how mutant HTR2B (a receptor that Abilify effects) increases impulsive behaviors.
  • In January 2016, Nicholas T. Meyer filed a lawsuit against Bristol-Myers Squibb which caused him, “harmful compulsive behaviors including compulsive gambling [and resulted] in substantial, financial, mental, and physical damages.”

What Can You Do

If you took Abilify and had a gambling problem after taking this medication, you may be able to receive compensation. You and your family may have experienced stress and suffering as a result of this destructive compulsive behavior and have accumulated bills or were forced to take time off of work because of it. There was a minimum of 3 ½ years where Bristol-Myers Squibb knew that their drug could cause uncontrollable urges, and yet they never warned doctors or patients of these horrible adverse effects.

3/19/19: Second U.S. jury finds Bayer's Roundup caused cancer

A U.S. jury on Tuesday found Bayer AG’s glyphosate-based Roundup weed killer caused cancer, a blow to the company eight months after another jury issued a $289 million (217.8 million pounds) verdict over similar claims in a different case.

Tuesday’s unanimous jury decision in San Francisco federal court, which came after five days of deliberation, was not a finding of Bayer’s liability for the cancer of plaintiff Edwin Hardeman. Liability and damages will be decided by the same jury in a second trial phase beginning on Wednesday.

2/27/19: Weedkiller ‘Raises Risk of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma by 41%’

A broad new scientific analysis of the cancer-causing potential of glyphosate herbicides, the most widely used weedkilling products in the world, has found that people with high exposures to the popular pesticides have a 41% increased risk of developing a type of cancer called non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

The evidence “supports a compelling link” between exposures to glyphosate-based herbicides and increased risk for non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), the authors concluded, though they said the specific numerical risk estimates should be interpreted with caution.

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.

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.

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.

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.
