Roundup® is a pesticide manufactured by Monsanto that was widely used across the United States for many years. The primary active chemical in Roundup is glyphosate, which has been identified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer as a Group 2A agent, which means that it is likely to cause cancer in humans. This organization also found a significant link between Roundup use and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. For those who have been injured by exposure to these chemical compounds, working with a qualified and knowledgeable Coral Springs Roundup attorney is a great first step toward achieving the right compensation for these injuries and the medical expenses incurred as a result.
Roundup is used as an herbicide and attacks enzymes in plants to clear ground for other uses. From 1974 to the expiration of its patent in 2000, Monsanto was the only source for any type of glyphosate-based herbicide products. Today, Roundup and products like it are banned in many areas and are considered the most likely reasons for many cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and subtypes of this medical condition. Individuals who lived near areas where Roundup is used or who worked directly with this product are at much higher risk of a number of physical issues than those with no exposure to the pesticide.
Recent studies have indicated that the glyphosate in Roundup and other herbicides might be linked to chromosomal damage in both human and animal cells during pregnancy. Because exposure can occur through inhalation as well as skin contact, Roundup presents a serious issue for those who live or work near areas where this herbicide is used. Initiating a lawsuit with the help of an experienced Coral Springs Roundup attorney may be the best and most practical option for you and your family in navigating the treatment process for non-Hodgkin lymphoma or other ailments that have been linked to Roundup.
