Both individual and class action lawsuits are being brought against the company. Also, nations around the world have been banning the use and import of Roundup in recent years.

The Effects of Roundup
Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup has been linked with the development of a variety of serious health issues. The chemical has been noted as contributing to cancer among landscapers, gardeners, farmers, and groundskeepers. Cancers linked to Roundup exposure include leukemia, myeloma, B-cell lymphoma, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Studies have also shown glyphosate to be associated with a wide variety of other conditions including Alzheimer’s, ALS, autism, ADHD, celiac’s disease, depression, diabetes, heart disease, IBS, liver disease, Parkinson’s disease, and more. These conditions may be attributable to numerous factors other than glyphosate exposure. If you believe Roundup has damaged your health, it is essential to seek a professional medical diagnosis and assessment to help determine the cause of your illness.
Roundup poses a risk to Oklahomans, mainly due to the state’s massive agricultural industry. Exposure most commonly occurs when the product is inhaled as it is being applied to plants. It is also possible, though less common, for exposure to occur through contaminated food or water.
Who is affected by the risks posed by Roundup
As the most used herbicide in the United States, many individuals have likely been exposed to Roundup. The individuals most likely to develop health issues related to Roundup are those who work with plants and herbicides regularly, such as, farmers, landscapers, groundskeepers, gardeners, and nursery employees.
However, according to the U.S. Public Interest Research Group, 26 million pounds of Roundup is sprayed on public spaces such as parks, playgrounds, and schools each year, and the non-agricultural use of the herbicide is growing. Furthermore, individuals who live near properties which frequently use of Roundup are at risk of developing health issues. With over 34 million acres of farmland in Oklahoma (over three-fourths of the state’s area), Oklahomans are at particular risk of exposure due to the rural and agricultural nature of the state. People working with plants have been led to believe Roundup is safe for decades; now, as research demonstrates the Herbicide’s danger, workers can seek fair compensation.
