We know that Roundup causes cancer, and Monsanto has known about the link between Roundup and cancer for decades.
Roundup is wahts known as a non-selective herbicide. It’s used to kill weeds that grow with agricultural crops. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, works by inhibiting a specific enzyme required for plant growth.
In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), whic is part of the World Health Organization, had classified glyphosate as a “probable human carcinogen.” We know that Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup. The claim in Monsanto Roundup lawsuit is that the company failed to warn users of the increased risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other forms of cancer.
The individuals most at risk for developing cancer are farm workers and other individuals with workplace exposure to the herbicide, such as employees in garden centers, nurseries, and landscapers. Individuals are exposed to glyphosate from breathing it while spraying, mixing or cleanup, or through drinking water or eating food contaminated with it.
