Georgia Roundup Attorney for non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Weed Killer Lawsuit

Roundup is the most widely-used weed killer in the world and perhaps the most commercially successful weed killer in history. It has been used on everything from industrial farming operations to personal use in our homes and gardens. In 2017, however, a potential link between Roundup use and various types of cancer was publicized. Since that time, thousands of lawsuits have been filed across the country by farmers, agricultural workers, and other people alleging that Roundup caused their cancer. Some of these cases have resulted in multi-million dollar awards in damages. If you have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma after using Roundup, you should speak with a Georgia Roundup attorney as soon as possible to understand your rights and discuss whether you may be entitled to compensation. 

What Ingredient in Roundup is Causing Cancer?

Glyphosate is the main ingredient in Roundup and what makes it such an effective weed killer. However, in 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced that the chemical is “probably carcinogenic” to humans. Their studies showed that it causes damage to the DNA and chromosomes found in human cells, often a precursor to cancer. The IARC’s announcement validated the suspicions of landscapers, farmers, and others who suspected their cancer was caused by exposure to Roundup. 

To make matters worse, the glyphosate found in Roundup is a very difficult chemical to contain. Because it was so heavily used, it can be found in streams and rivers due to runoff from treated fields. Trace amounts of glyphosate have also been found in a wide variety of food products. 

The bottom line is that almost anyone is at risk. A recent study revealed that 93% of test subjects had traces of glyphosate in their systems. If you have contracted non-Hodgkin lymphoma and you suspect it may be due to Roundup exposure, you should contact a Georgia Roundup attorney as soon as possible. 

Why Is Roundup Linked to Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in Georgia?

While it is believed that Roundup may cause a variety of cancers, it has been specifically linked to non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is a type of cancer that starts in the white blood cells, or lymphocytes, a part of the body’s immune system. It typically begins in the lymph nodes or anywhere in the body where lymph tissue is found, such as the spleen. It is one of the most severe forms of cancer. 

Common signs of symptoms of non-Hodgkin lymphoma are as follows: 

  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Abdominal swelling or pain
  • Fever
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Anemia
  • Weight loss
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Persistent cough
  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Regular vomiting or diarrhea
  • Skin rash
  • Sleep disturbances

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should contact your doctor immediately. A Georgia Roundup attorney can help you understand your options if you are later diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. 

Are Children Also at Risk From Roundup Exposure in Georgia? 

Children are also at risk of developing serious health problems due to exposure to Roundup. While they may not be working as landscapers or farmhands, children often spend a great deal of time playing outside. Children can be exposed even though they aren’t using or working with Roundup—playing in an area that has been treated with the weed killer is sufficient. Children can be exposed to Roundup in the following places: 

  • Your lawn or your friends, neighbors,’ or your relatives’ lawns
  • Athletic fields or parks
  • Farms and agricultural fields near your home

Children raised on farms are especially at risk, as they have likely been subjected to prolonged exposure compared to others. It is important to remember that Roundup is a spray that can drift on the wind or travel via runoff. Even if you don’t use it on your lawn, your child could be exposed if your neighbor uses Roundup heavily to treat their yard. If your child has been diagnosed with cancer or some other illness that you believe has been caused by Roundup exposure, we recommend that you speak with a Georgia Roundup attorney as soon as possible. 

Our Georgia Roundup Attorney Explains Who Should be Held Accountable

Roundup was originally manufactured by Monsanto, which Bayer acquired in 2018. Bayer claims that it has been named in over 18,000 lawsuits across the country as a result of Roundup-related illnesses. Three of these cases have gone to trial, resulting in multi-million dollar verdicts for the claimants. 

Of course, Bayer and previously Monsanto have consistently maintained that Roundup poses no health risks to humans. However, there is extensive evidence that suggests that Monsanto and Bayer knew about the health risks of Roundup for decades and refused to acknowledge them. There is evidence that Monsanto did not use due diligence in testing the weed killer, attempted to bury evidence that later suggested it was dangerous, and even attempted to discredit scientists who questioned its safety. While the EPA has taken the position that glyphosate is not likely to cause cancer, there is evidence suggesting that they are relying upon self-serving studies funded by Monsanto rather than their independent research. 

Ultimately, Bayer and Monsanto should be held accountable for profiting from a dangerous chemical sold to unsuspecting consumers. If you have been diagnosed with cancer after using Roundup, a Georgia Roundup lawyer can help you pursue a claim. 

Who Can Pursue a Claim Due to Roundup Health Problems in Georgia? 

People who have used Roundup for years or regularly used the weed killer face the most significant risk of related health problems. In one of the cases that resulted in a $2 billion verdict, the doctor testifying for the claimants stated that using Roundup more than two days per year doubles your risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma. As a result, anyone who has regularly used or been exposed to Roundup may be able to pursue a claim.
