Cincinnati, Ohio Toxic Tort Attorney reviewing Roundup exposure and associated cancers. The Lyon Firm is accepting non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Roundup cancer cases and files Lymphocytic Leukemia lawsuits on behalf of plaintiffs nationwide
Roundup exposure lawsuits are now one of the largest areas of litigation in the United States. Consumers have been exposed to harmful toxins in Monsanto’s Roundup products for decades, and have developed cancers as a result.
Many farmers, gardeners, groundskeepers, landscapers and plant nursery staff have regularly used Roundup and other pesticides for many years, and face an increased risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, small-cell lymphocytic lymphoma, and chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Plaintiffs claim that Monsanto, now owned by Bayer AG, knew of the potential health risks associated with Roundup exposure, but failed to warn consumers. The company has denied wrongdoing, and Roundup is still on the market, despite studies that indicate the product is dangerous and can directly lead to cancer.
In 2015, several health experts and safety agencies declared glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, is a probably a carcinogen.
Based on available data, consumer safety lawyers and medical experts warn of an association between exposure to herbicides and pesticides and increased risk for developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL).
Roundup cancer and lymphocytic leukemia lawsuits claim that Monsanto and Bayer have withheld critical information from the public that could have prevented thousands of cancer cases. The company allegedly failed to warn of the increased risk of chronic lymphocytic leukemia and small lymphocytic lymphoma.
Farmers, landscapers, groundskeepers and home gardeners may be at a heightened risk of any Roundup-related injury or cancer. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began to suspect Roundup was more dangerous than previously thought in the 1980s, but not until recently did the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) conclude that glyphosate has a cancer link.
Types of cancer that have so far been linked to Roundup and other weedkillers may include:
SLL, or small lymphocytic lymphoma is a type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma affecting the B-lymphocyte cells. SLL has similarities to chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) which also affects B-cells.
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. The term “chronic” refers to the fact that it usually progresses slower than other types of leukemia. Many people with chronic lymphocytic leukemia have few or no early symptoms. Signs and symptoms of leukemia may include:
Toxic Exposure and chemical exposure is suspected in some leukemia cases. Certain herbicides and insecticides, including Roundup, may be linked to an increased risk of chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia may experience frequent infections, often upper and lower respiratory tract infections that can further weaken the immune system.
CLL may progress into a more aggressive form of cancer called diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, or Richter’s syndrome. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia patients have an increased risk of other types of cancer as well.
