U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) research links exposure to glyphosate – the active ingredient in Roundup weed killer – to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Their research also identifies it as a possible neurotoxin. Therefore, if you or a loved one suffered from adverse health conditions after breathing, spraying, or touching Roundup at work or in your home garden or lawn, you could be entitled to compensation.
The mass torts team at Anastopoulo Law Firm helps victims of the weed-killing product file Roundup lawsuits. Through legal action, you can seek the costs of your medical care, lost income, and pain and suffering related to the toxic exposure. Our team takes care of all case-related details so you can focus on getting better. We also make sure your case meets all legal requirements, such as complying with the relevant statute of limitations.
Why Glyphosate Is Dangerous
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) research cites glyphosate as the active ingredient in Roundup weed killer. Glyphosate can irritate skin and eyes and cause nausea and vomiting if swallowed. It has also been associated with the following health hazards:
- Respiratory difficulty
- Nasal irritation
Additional studies indicate that glyphosate can lead to developmental difficulties, including low body weight and abnormal bone and organ growth. If you were exposed to Roundup and subsequently suffered any adverse health conditions, we can help search for evidence to prove that exposure to this chemical was a contributing factor.
Understand the Roundup-Cancer Connection
According to Mutation Research/Reviews in Mutation Research, a University of Washington study from 2018 shows a 41% increased risk of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) among agricultural workers who used products containing glyphosate, like Roundup.
Exposure to it can occur from regular use, such as spraying Roundup and subsequently breathing it in. You can also suffer exposure by swallowing food contaminated with glyphosate or handling wet or recently sprayed plants.
CDC research categorizes Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma as a type of cancer that randomly invades the lymphatic system. Treatment for this type of leukemia often includes chemotherapy, radiation, and stem cell transplants. You could recoup the cost of these treatments, along with additional financial expenses and losses, with a lawsuit against the product’s manufacturer.
Additional Health Care Risks of Roundup’s Active Ingredient
The carcinogen risk of Roundup may not be the only way using this weed killer can affect your health. Interdisciplinary Toxicology cites additional risks to your health that come from exposure to glyphosate, including:
- Fertility issues
- Celiac Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Parkinson’s Disease
Diagnosing and treating your current condition is critical for your recovery – do not wait to seek medical care. If you were exposed to Roundup and your health suffered, our team can help you prove a connection and build a strong case for compensation.
