How might I have been exposed to Roundup?
Since Roundup is used so often, people can be exposed in numerous ways. When it is sprayed onto plants, people might inhale the product or absorb it through their eyes. They might also absorb the product through their skin when they Roundup accidentally gets on their skin, or they touch a plant or other object that has Roundup on it. Additionally, people might be exposed by eating food that was treated with Roundup or drinking water that has absorbed the product.
What is glyphosate?
Glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Roundup, is the chemical that is most commonly used to kill unwanted weeds or plants. It kills plants by preventing them from producing a protein that they need to grow. The glyphosate attaches to soil and can stay in the soil for up to six months.
What proof is there that Roundup might cause cancer?
The International Agency for Research on Cancer – the agency of the World Health Organization that specializes in cancer research – determined in 2015 that there is evidence that glyphosate could cause cancer in humans.
What are the potential side effects of exposure to Roundup?
Exposure to glyphosate – Roundup’s main ingredient – has been connected to multiple ailments. While many of these conditions could also be linked to genetic or environmental factors, studies have shown that glyphosate might be associated with the development of:
- Lymphoma, leukemia, brain cancer, and various other cancers
- ADHD (glyphosate is associated with problems in thyroid hormone functions)
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Anencephaly (birth defect)
- Celiac disease (and other gluten intolerances)
- Heart disease
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Liver disease
- Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS)
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson’s disease
- Reproductive problems
- Respiratory illnesses
How long do I have to file a suit?
Georgia laws on “statute of limitations” state that legal claims must be started within two years of an injury or wrongful death. However, the law also has a “discovery” clause, which says that the period does not start until the date that you became aware or had a reasonable suspicion that the negligence of another could have caused your injury.
Different limitations apply if your loved one has died, and you think Roundup exposure could have caused their wrongful death. California law states that legal action must start within six months of the person’s death or within two years of the injury (or as stated above, suspicion of a link between the injury and negligence) – whichever period expires later.
Has anyone won a case related to Roundup exposure?
Over the past year, courts have awarded Californians almost $200 million in lawsuits related to cancer caused by exposure to Roundup. Courts have said that evidence shows the product’s manufacturer Monsanto knew that the ingredients in Roundup could cause cancer and failed to warn users of their product.
