Monsanto and Roundup Weed Killer Health Injuries
Thornton Law Firm was among the first law firms to sue Monsanto Company for significant health injuries as a result of Roundup® exposure. In 2012 our firm first filed lawsuits on behalf of 125 children with significant birth injuries as a result of their parents’ using Roundup weedkiller on farms in Argentina. As a result of this longstanding litigation in Delaware state court, we have collected extensive information on Roundup, including research conducted by Monsanto on the risks to human health from glyphosate, the principal active ingredient, and the adjuvants also contained in Roundup weed control.
Roundup Classified As A Probable Carcinogen
In 2015 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) conducted an extensive review of glyphosate toxicity and concluded the chemical is a probable human carcinogen. Specifically, IARC found a positive association between glyphosate and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Furthermore, IARC’s review included agriculture health studies which found associations with other hematopoietic cancers (cancers of the blood cells), including multiple myeloma, hairy cell leukemia, and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The well-known California Proposition 65 list of chemicals now includes glyphosate as an agent known to cause cancer.
