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

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.

Abilify: Is This Antipsychotic a Crapshoot? (Press Release)

DANVILLE, Calif., May 25, 2018A drug that causes people to gamble? This has to be a scapegoat for bad behavior or another crazy lawsuit like McDonald’s and the too hot coffee. While this sounds unbelievable, massive numbers of people have reported having compulsive behavior after taking the antipsychotic drug Abilify (aripiprazole). Even the underfunded FDA has published a safety report on May 3, 2016 warning that “compulsive or uncontrollable urges to gamble… have been reported with the use of the antipsychotic drug aripiprazole.”

Invokana: The Diabetic Drug That Costs a Limb (Press Release)

DANVILLE, Calif., May 25, 2018 – 29 million people have type 2 diabetes in the U.S. making it big business for pharmaceutical companies. Released in 2013, Invokana was heralded as a new lifestyle drug and the “darling” of diabetic medications. It was even said to help patients lose weight and reduce high blood pressure! However, this miracle pill wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Kaiser Permanente in California urges its doctors not to prescribe this drug and to closely monitor those patients who are on it. Dr. Steven Nissen, Chairman of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic, states that he is “uncomfortable prescribing [Invokana] in view of the amputation risk.”  He also calculated that one out of every 69 patients who takes canagliflozin for five years will have a drug-related amputation. Clearly this drug should be taken off the market since toe, foot, and partial leg amputations are twice as likely on Invokana as compared to other diabetic medications.

Minimize Health Risks from Glyphosate Exposure in Your Food

Monsanto’s Roundup and its key ingredient glyphosate has to be one of the most controversial topics on the Internet. More than 1.8 million tons has been sprayed on crops and other vegetation in the U.S. since 1974 and two-thirds of that has been sprayed just in the last 10 years. (In fact, in 2014 farmers sprayed 1.65 billion pounds of glyphosate. That’s enough to cover every acre of cropland in the world with about a half pound of this chemical.) Many studies and international government agencies have attributed Roundup as carcinogenic – it can potentially cause cancer – and recommend that this weedkiller be avoided.
