Roundup® Lawsuits in Louisiana

The most highly used herbicide in the world, Bayer Monsanto’s Roundup®, is known for killing weeds and leaving minimal damage to the environment. Approximately 250 million pounds of RoundUp® is sprayed on crops and common areas like lawns, driveways, and parks in the U.S. each year.

This product claims to be one of the safest herbicides on the market, but in recent years has been linked to several types of blood cancer. Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys is investigating several Roundup® related non-Hodgkin lymphoma cases in Louisiana. If you or someone you know has been affected by the exposure to this chemical, it’s critical that you contact an attorney to get you the compensation you deserve.

In 2015, Glyphosate, the main ingredient found in Roundup®, was announced by the International Agency for Research of Cancer to be “probably carcinogenic to humans.” IARC concluded based on research that showed that exposure to glyphosate caused DNA and chromosomal damage in human cells. This chromosomal damage can lead to several types of blood cancer.

Who is at Risk?

Individuals who are most at risk of developing cancer from exposure of glyphosate include farmers, landscapers, employees in nurseries and garden centers, and others involved in frequent use of herbicides on crops. People who use Roundup® regularly for their gardens and lawns may also be at risk.

There have been reports of Roundup® users being diagnosed with the following cancer types:

  • Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma
  • Chronic Lymphotcytic Leukemia
  • Lymphoblastic Lymphoma
  • Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma
  • Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma
  • Follicular Lymphoma
  • Mantle Cell Lymphoma
  • T-Cell Lymphoma
  • Burkitt Lymphoma
  • Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia
