Putting Profit Ahead Of Customer Health Concerns
There is still a lot that we do not understand about how glyphosate interacts with the human body. Although it was introduced over 40 years ago in Monsanto’s Roundup Weedkiller, there is still some question about whether it is safe for use.
In a 2018 case, a California man was awarded over $280 million in damages after a jury determined that if it were not for his exposure to the weedkiller, he would not have developed non-Hodgkins lymphoma.
Since that case, many more are making their way to court with similar claims; that the glyphosate and other chemicals in Roundup Weedkiller made them sick.
Signs And Symptoms Of Toxic Exposure
The most common illness attributed to the glyphosate and other chemicals in Roundup Weedkiller is non-Hodgkins lymphoma. The symptoms for non-Hodgkins lymphoma can include:
- Abdominal pain
- Loss of appetite
- Night sweats
- Weight loss
- Swollen lymph nodes
People who have used or currently regularly use these herbicides are at a higher risk of reaching a toxic level of exposure. Keep in mind that everyone responds to these chemicals differently. The same amount that does not affect one person could be a toxic level for another.
