Roundup

Roundup Weed Killer
Linked to Cancer

“It is not the culture of U.S. medicine to report adverse events to the FDA.”

Dr. David Kessler, Former FDA Commissioner

Roundup Is a Staple for Farmers and Private Citizens Alike

Since 1974, millions of consumers have been using Roundup (glyphosate) as a weed killer. Every year, it’s estimated that consumers use over 250 million pounds of glyphosate in various capacities—from heavy-duty industrial farm use for crops, in public areas such as plant nurseries, in landscaping projects, for parks and golf courses, and in private use on sidewalks, driveways and lawns. Unfortunately, we are now discovering that this all-too-common product may be connected with elevated risks of cancer, specifically non-Hodgkin lymphoma, B-cell lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and leukemia.

Is Roundup Harmful to Humans?

Roundup’s active ingredient is glyphosate, a chemical whose potential as an herbicide was developed by Monsanto scientists, hitting the market as Roundup weed killer in 1974. According to a number of scientific reports, glyphosate can increase the risk of developing certain types of cancer. In fact, many report that everyday use of Roundup contributed to their diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, B-cell lymphoma, lymphocytic lymphoma, multiple myeloma, leukemia, and chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

Monsanto Continues to Market Roundup

Consumers across the country are concerned, confused, and angered by mounting allegations against Monsanto of fabricated data and attacks against legitimate scientific studies of glyphosate. Many consumers who believe they’ve been affected by a “failure to warn” are seeking financial compensation from the manufacturer.

Monsanto released Roundup in 1974, and it quickly became the “go-to” product for industrial farming and landscaping, as well as for basic lawn maintenance. In fact, Roundup has even been marketed to consumers as “biodegradable” and “eco-friendly,” less harmful than ordinary table salt or the caffeine in your morning cup of coffee.

But in a 2015 ruling by the World Health Organization, scientists stated that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic.” In 2017, this ruling prompted the State of California to list glyphosate as a carcinogenic chemical under Proposition 65—although the product still has no warning label!

Despite these rulings, Monsanto fails to acknowledge and warn consumers about the risk. If you have developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma, B-cell lymphoma, lymphocytic lymphoma, multiple myeloma, leukemia, or chronic lymphocytic leukemia due to using Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer, you may qualify for financial compensation.

Johnson & Johnson Continues to Battle in Court Over Cancer Causing Baby Powder

For decades Johnson & Johnson, the makers of the iconic baby powder, have denied claims that their product contains traces of potentially carcinogenic (cancer causing) asbestos. However, recent trials have determined that J&J’s baby powder is to blame for two victims who were diagnosed with mesothelioma. Current, a third trial is taking place in St. Louis involving 22 women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using this product. The evidence presented in these trials could impact the outcome of future cases concerning J&J and the link between talcum powder, asbestos, and cancer.

The Problem with Pharmaceutical Companies Funding the FDA

Did you know that pharmaceutical companies pay to have their drugs and medical devices reviewed by the FDA? Back in 1992, the FDA was overwhelmed with approval requests and grossly underfunded, so the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) was enacted to generate much needed income to speed the process along. The benefit was thought the be threefold: 1) the government agency could get the additional help it required without further burdening tax payers; 2) patients could have quicker access to needed medications, and 3) drug companies could get their medication to market sooner to create profit from their investment. But now looking in hindsight, is this a conflict of interests?
