My law firm is looking at Round Up cases in the Charlotte community. Use and exposure to Round Up has been linked to certain forms of cancer. Four years ago, a United Nations-sponsored scientific agency declared that Roundup probably causes cancer. As NPR’s Dan Charles reported, the finding from the International Agency for Research on Cancer caused Monsanto to launch a fierce campaign to discredit the IARC’s conclusions.
“Internal company emails, released as part of a lawsuit against the company, show how Monsanto recruited outside scientists to co-author reports defending the safety of glyphosate, sold under the brand name Roundup. Monsanto executive William Heydens proposed that the company ‘ghost-write’ one paper. In an email, Heydens wrote that ‘we would be keeping the cost down by us doing the writing and they would just edit & sign their names so to speak.’ Heydens wrote that this is how Monsanto had ‘handled’ an earlier paper on glyphosate’s safety.”
More than 13,000 other lawsuits have been filed against its subsidiary, Monsanto, the maker of Roundup. A California jury awarded a stunning $2.055 billion Monday to a couple who claim that Bayer AG’s Roundup weed killer caused their cancer. After three jury verdicts in California, a trial is scheduled for August in St. Louis County in Missouri, the site of Monsanto’s former headquarters.

– Mediastinal B-Cell Lymphoma
– Mantle Cell Lymphoma
