What is Roundup
In 2020, the Bayer, Corporation stated that it would pay over 10 billion dollars in class action lawsuits brought against them by people asserting that the weed killer Roundup was the cause of their cancer.
Roundup is a very popular weed killer on the market today. It has an ingredient known as glyphosate. Top brands like Clean Up and Rodeo also have glyphosate in their weed killers. These weed killers have other chemicals in them too other than glyphosate.
In addition, these weed killers contain surfactants to help increase their shelf life. Due to the fact that the federal law only requires businesses to name the main active ingredient in their weed killers, many of the other chemicals are unknown to the public. This causes a problem for the public. No one really knows what’s in it.
Does glyphosate weed killer Roundup cause cancer?
Some feel it may not, but others are on the fence. The bottom line is that it may. It was stated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer that glyphosate is likely a carcinogen for humans.
In addition, a meta-analysis study performed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency stated that exposure to high levels of glyphosate increases the chance of cancer. Specifically, it increased the chance of developing Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma by over 40%.
Please findings have increased the success of a Roundup lawsuit. It backs up what the plaintiff is alleging. As more and more cancer cases keep popping up from glyphosate, the companies of these weed killers are facing liability. In both 2019 and 2018, juries have awarded plaintiffs hundreds of millions in dollars due to the development of cancer from Roundup.
Later in 2020, the Bayer Corporation agreed to settle many weed killer Roundup cancer lawsuits for over $10 billion. Roundup has been connected to lymphoma cancer. The lymphatic system of the human body is responsible for fighting against disease and germs. This very important human system includes the tonsils, spleen, lymph nodes, bone marrow, thymus, and adenoids.
The cancer of lymphoma can affect all other organs in the human body. The symptoms of lymphoma include swelling of the lymph nodes, fever, fatigue, night sweats, weight loss, and itchy skin. With Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, cancerous tumors develop in the white blood cells. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a very dangerous cancer, as it can spread to other parts of the body.
Both the T cells and the B cells are adversely affected by this type of cancer. The types of Non-Hodgkin cancer are known as lymphoma mantle cell lymphoma and B cell lymphoma. Make no mistake, Non-Hodgkin’s cancer is a very serious cancer to have. Some survive it, why others do not.
Even though the Bayer Corporation and other corporations feel that glyphosate does not cause cancer in humans, the juries continue to vote in favor of the plaintiffs. And the company knows this. That’s why they are willing to make an offer for plaintiffs.
