Roundup victim? Here is where you can find help

type:Campaign, Project
by:Yair Oded

Following the historic decision of a California Superior Court jury ordering Monsanto to pay $289 million to Dewayne Lee Johnson for their weed killer’s role in causing his cancer, thousands of others have filed lawsuits against the corporation.

Monsanto’s popular weed killer, which has been scientifically proven to contain the chemical glyphosate, and has been marketed to the public as the brand Roundup, has been linked by a growing number of researchers to various types of cancer, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and leukemia.

Consumersafety.org, an organization committed to informing the public about potentially dangerous or problematic products (including drugs, medical devices, home repair products, and more), has launched a page dedicated to assisting people who were diagnosed with cancer after using Roundup.

The page offers extensive information regarding the history of the Monsanto cases, an overview of the science and research linking Roundup to cancer, and a guide that explains who may be eligible to file a lawsuit.

According to Consumer Safety, “Anyone who has used Monsanto’s Roundup and later been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma or another form of cancer may be eligible to file a lawsuit. Surviving family members may also be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Monsanto, should their loved one have passed away as a result of their cancer.”

Finally, Consumer Safety links visitors with attorneys who may conduct a free-of-charge assessment of their case and determine their eligibility and options.

If you or your loved ones were adversely affected by Roundup, please consider visiting their page for more information and guidance.
