Homeowners in Neighborhoods With Children Should Stop Using Roundup Weedkiller Immediately

A red or white warning flag means nothing to children who roll around and play in parks and lawns and come into direct skin contact with the deadly, cancer-causing Roundup weedkiller daily

Monday, September 2, 2019 - Parents across America are concerned that too much Roundup herbicide is being sprayed on our food and also in areas where children play. Unhealthy levels of glyphosate, the active and controversial ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide have shown up in all breakfast cereal and "natural" health bars tested in levels that are above what the Food and Drug Administration considers acceptable for children. Glyphosate has been labeled "probably carcinogenic" by the International Agency on Cancer Research and Roundup is now included in the official State of California's list of products that contain chemicals that cause cancer. One municipality after another is banning Roundup weed killer and other herbicides that contain glyphosate. While parents are rightly concerned about the potential dangers of their children eating oats and grain products that contain glyphosate, a much more pressing child health risk confronts them daily on school playgrounds, and also on their front and back lawns.

Children do not just walk around on the lawn or the playground. Instead, they play sports and roll and tumble around on neighborhood lawns after school for hours at a time. Homeowners need to be aware that they are placing their children's long-term health at risk from coming into direct skin contact with Roundup herbicide. Suburban homeowners should follow the lead of the hundreds of local municipal government that maintain municipal parks, and lawn care personnel and discontinue the use of Roundup weed killer immediately. Monsanto Roundup cancer attorneys offer legal representation to families and individuals filing claims against Monsanto for misrepresentation of Roundup cancer risks and safety.

Plaintiffs in all three cases developed cancer from coming into direct skin contact repeatedly for a long period with the chemical mixture that comprises Roundup herbicide. While much has been made of glyphosate being safe or not, that is not what matters. What is at issue is the surfactant chemical in Roundup that causes it to adhere to the cells in the weeds it is intended to kill also causes glyphosate to stick to human cells and bio-accumulate to cancer-causing levels over time. Cancer warnings that have been trumpeted by the three multi-million dollar jury awards, each in the range of $80-100 million, to people who have developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma from coming into direct skin contact with the chemical. No one is saying farmers should ban glyphosate. What needs to be banned is Roundup.

Children have been rolling around on playgrounds, parks, and lawns contaminated with glyphosate every single day for years and it may be only a matter of time before glyphosate cancers start to appear. It could take 2, 5 or 10 years of Roundup weed killer exposure to develop cancer and an additional 10-20 for cancer to become evident making a direct link from childhood Roundup weed killer exposure to adult cancer difficult to trace. For now, we must heed the warnings that the legal system is providing and just use a little common sense.
