New Lawsuits Claim Roundup Caused Cancer

Maintenance workers forced to use Monsanto's Roundup herbicide that develope cancer are blaming Monsanto

Friday, November 3, 2017 - In one of the latest cancer-related Roundup lawsuits against Monsanto, the manufacturer of the popular herbicide Roundup, an Arizona man blames his cancer diagnosis on using the chemical. The man is seeking compensatory and punitive damages against the company having been diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The lawsuit, filed in September of 2017, alleges that the plaintiff used Roundup for about three years on his home lawn and property as well as in the due course of his employment as a maintenance worker, being unaware of the adverse health consequences he might suffer as a result.

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the cancer of the white blood cells in the bone marrow and rapidly migrates to other parts of the body. The disease is similar to non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) which has been linked to occupations such as farmers, landscapers, and maintenance workers throughout the United States that use Roundup weedkiller in the daily course of their occupation. (ALL) is considered a more deadly form of cancer because it is already in the blood, the white blood cells called lymphocytes, and can easily produce tumors in any of the organs through which it travels. (ALL) cancer is already at an advanced stage by definition. defines (ALL) as a bone marrow cancer that occurs when the bone marrow makes excess white blood cells which in turn affect the red blood cells and platelets. Symptoms of (ALL) include easy bruising, high fever, lethargy and non-stop. (ALL) can be detected by a blood test examining the white blood cells. Further testing can confirm or deny the diagnosis. Chemotherapy itself can add to the risk of developing (ALL).

Oncologists point to old age, HIV, and drugs that cause autoimmune supression, i.e., chemotherapy, as major factors in causing (ALL).

If you are in a high-risk cancer occupation such farmer, landscaper, and maintenance worker and are starting to experience the early signs of cancer you should contact a medical expert immediately. Early cancer warning signs include swollen lymph nodes, stomach, chest, or lungs pain, coughing, fatigue, fever, and loss of appetite. Successfully treating cancer is dependant on early diagnosis as the longer one waits the greater the odds that the disease has spread to other parts of the body. A doctor may opt to closely monitor an abnormal blood count or a tumor or many recommend immediate radiation therapy to kill an isolated tumor. When the disease affects the bone marrow and white blood cells a cancer doctor may recommend chemotherapy. The sooner cancer is detected, the high your odds for survival.

The state of California has recently added glyphosate to its official list of chemicals that cause cancer. Independent research scientists at the International Agency for Research on Cancer, a division of the World Health Organization found as early as 2015 that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide causes DNA and chromosomal damage and in their words is, "probably carcinogenic."
