AFFECTS OF EXPOSURE TO ROUNDUP

11

1. CANCER (NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA):

The 2015, study conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO) declared glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans”. The simple conclusion derived from this study was that glyphosate has the potential to cause cancer. Glyphosate, one of the core ingredients of Roundup, is specifically alleged to cause Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer that originates in your lymphatic system which is the disease-fighting network spread throughout your body.

2. GLUTEN SENSITIVITY & CELIAC DISEASE

There are hundreds of different kinds of microorganisms in your gut, most of which are bacteria. Several of them are friendly bacteria, and are incredibly important for your health. Roundup may negatively affect these useful bacteria. Studies conducted on animals have shown that glyphosate is known to disrupt beneficial gut bacteria. But contrary to the same, harmful bacteria seemed to be highly resistant to glyphosate. One particular article that received a lot of attention on the internet even hypothesized that the glyphosate in Roundup is to blame for the increase in gluten sensitivity and celiac disease worldwide.

LAWSUITS AND SETTLEMENT WITH REGARDS TO USAGE OF ROUNDUP

  • Monsanto is faced with over 9,300 lawsuits as a result of Roundup’s cancer-causing ingredients. A Roundup class action lawsuit (Case No: BC-578-942) was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court claiming that Monsanto falsely advertised that the herbicide was safe to use. The lawsuit alleges that Monsanto deliberately falsified documents and concealed information that exposure to glyphosate is dangerous to humans and the environment
  • August 2018 Settlement: The first person to take Monsanto to court was Dewayne “Lee” Johnson. He alleged that exposure to Roundup herbicide caused him to develop Non-Hodgkin lymphoma and that the company covered up the risks. In August 2018, a jury of a San Francisco Court unanimously found that Monsanto had failed to warn about the carcinogenic dangers of Roundup herbicide and related products, based on this finding they awarded Johnson $289 million. The upper Court later reduced that amount to $78 million. March 2019 Verdict: In March 2019, a federal jury delivered a unanimous verdict in the United States District Court in San Francisco finding that Monsanto’s popular weedkiller Roundup was a “substantial factor” in causing a California man’s cancer.
