A Roundup Lawsuit Lawyer TN Trusts Tells You What You Need to Know About the Weed Killer and Cancer Risks
As a Roundup lawsuit lawyer TN has relied on for more than thirty years, I want to make sure you have the most important facts about Roundup and its alleged link to cancer. Roundup is the most popular weed killer in America. It is manufactured by Monsanto, whose parent company is Bayer. Monsanto also manufactures the widely-used weed killer Ranger Pro.
What most folks don’t know is that glyphosate, the active ingredient in both of these weed killers, has been ruled a “probable carcinogen” by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, according to reports. This means that glyphosate is likely a substance that is capable of causing cancer in living tissue.
In fact, a California jury recently ruled that Monsanto’s weed killers were the cause of a man’s Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. As a consequence, Monsanto must pay the dying man $289 million in damages.
Glyphosate, Our Food, and How This May Lead to Cancer
So, how does a weed killer like Roundup or Ranger Pro allegedly cause cancer? The answer may surprise you. Glyphosate, the active ingredient, is not only used to kill weeds. Sometimes farmers use it as a drying agent to help crops like wheat, barley, and oats dry faster before harvesting. These contaminated grains are then used to make all sorts of foods that end up in our grocery stores, our homes, and our bodies.
In fact, glyphosate has been found in foods we normally think of as healthy and safe. These include Cheerios breakfast cereals, Quaker Oats products, honey, soybeans, and many popular snacks. Both the Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture have completed tests that show glyphosate contamination in our foods is widespread.
This is a huge problem, considering that repeated exposure to glyphosate may:
- Disrupt the balance of your gut microbiome
- Cause Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- Cause lung cancer
- Limit your body’s ability to create functioning proteins
- Affect neurotransmitters
- Lead to hypothyroidism
- And more
Even if the levels of glyphosate in a given food are low, the risk of ingesting an unhealthy amount may be much higher since glyphosate is in so many of the foods we eat every day.
