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.
