Securing Compensation for Clients in Albuquerque
Have you or loved one been exposed to Monsanto’s Roundup® weed
killer and then developed a serious or deadly health condition? If so,
you might be entitled to financial compensation for the harm you suffered.
Recently, a man was awarded $289 million in damages after a court ruled
that Monsanto products caused him to develop non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
In the ruling, the judge said that Monsanto failed to warn consumers about
the dangerous risks associated with the use of Roundup and Ranger Pro
Roundup Injuries & Side Effects
Roundup® contains glyphosate, a chemical that has been linked to various
forms of cancer. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), exposure
to glyphosate can cause a person to develop the following types of cancer:
- Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma
- B-Cell or T-Cell Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
- Follicular Lymphoma
- Hairy Cell Leukemia
- Mantle Cell Lymphoma
In addition to the WHO, the International Agency for Research on Cancer
and California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment
both list glyphosate as a chemical known to cause cancer. Unfortunately,
Monsanto never shared this information with the public and instead promoted
Roundup as being non-toxic to humans, pets, birds, and fish. In fact,
the company claimed the product was just as safe as table salt.
Occupations that are most at risk for developing a health condition from
glyphosate exposure include:
- Nursery Workers
- Garden Center Employees
- Grounds Keepers
