LOOGG Investigating Monsanto/Roundup Claims
Law Offices of Gary Green is currently investigating claims against Roundup (glyphosate), a weed and grass killer declared by the World Health Organization (WHO) to be a “probable human carcinogen.”
Multiple studies have suggested a link between glyphosate and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Other reported complications include:
- birth defects
- kidney disease
- other cancers
Farmers and landscapers may be especially at risk.
Glyphosate, which is the main active ingredient in Roundup and many other products, is the most widely used chemical in agriculture. It has been found in urine, breastmilk, and blood samples, but the U.S. Department of Agriculture doesn’t test for it among the pesticides it monitors in food supplies.
Glyphosate is also used to quicken the drying process on wheat and oats. Other affected crops may include lentils, peas, corn, potatoes, sunflowers, and soybeans.
Monsanto, who in 2015 earned $4.8 billion in Roundup sales alone, is currently being sued for claiming glyphosate isn’t harmful to people or pets.
