RoundUp is a very commonly used and famous product to get rid of weeds. The product was created by a company known for formulating agricultural chemicals, Monsanto. Incepted in 1901, the company is now widely criticized for hiding important information which led to a slew of people to be exposed to lymphoma cancer. While most people still agree that the chemical did an amazing job at getting rid of weeds, it isn’t worth risking one’s life.
WHY IS ROUNDUP CONSIDERED DANGEROUS?
The compound that acts as the key component to get rid of weeds has been studied ever since it was formulated, basically since 1974. Researchers investigated the impact of this component on non-target subjects, and they found out that this compound is in fact associated with celiac disease, non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and cancer. The compound prevalent in RoundUp which is linked to diseases is known as glyphosate. In 2015 the World Health Organization went on to term the component as “probably carcinogenic to humans”.
People have reported that exposure to RoundUp leads to lymphoma. This led to a class action product liability lawsuit to generate against Monsanto – the manufacturer of RoundUp. Patients claimed that Monsanto withheld important information from their consumers and led them to use their product which is a risk to people’s lives.
Even after substantial evidence, Monsanto continues to deny the fact that RoundUp is associated with any diseases. Contrary to their claims, people who have recently developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after coming into contact with RoundUp continue to shed light on the blatant lies the company has told and put the lives of thousands in danger. If only the big brand had not withheld information from clients, people would not have felt the need to file a class action lawsuit on this matter.
Farmers are twice as likely to develop non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma as non-farmers. Grasping the risks of RoundUp is not only important for the consumers and farmers, but it is crucial to safeguard the environment as well.
