New Study Confirms Glyphosate Could Cause Autism

While thousands of Roundup cancer lawsuits are close to being settled, a new front of litigation against Monsanto may be gaining traction

Tuesday, June 2, 2020 - Nearly 125,000 individuals are represented by lawyers that have filed a claim against Monsanto's parent company Bayer maintaining that using Roundup Weedkiller caused their non-Hodgkins-lymphoma, a rare and fatal form of cancer of the lymph nodes. The majority of these cases are being brought by professional users of the herbicide such as farmers, farm equipment operators, farm workers, landscapers and government property and public park maintenance workers that allege that having come into direct skin contact with the chemical allowed it to bio-accumulate to levels that even Monsanto has admitted would be considered dangerous. The chemical mixture that comprises Roundup weedkiller contains an additive compound that makes glyphosate stick to the plant to become absorbed more efficiently without running off and does the same when it gets on human skin. Three multi-hundred-million dollar jury awards agreed that Monsanto and now Bayer had a responsibility to warn those who use the product in industrial-strength quantities to wear protective waterproof clothing when applying the herbicide. Bayer has chosen to aggressively pursue mediation of the cases to set aside funds to pay the thousands of Roundup cancer sufferers. If you or a loved one have used Roundup herbicide regularly over many years and have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma you can speak with a Roundup Cancer Lawyer to see if you qualify to file a claim. Those with Roundup cancer notwithstanding, there appears to be a new front about to open for those whose children have developed autism from eating foods contaminated with glyphosate, a chemical called "probably carcinogenic" by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

A new study confirms the research of Dr. Stephanie Seneff from MIT whose hypothesis contends that ingesting glyphosate interferes with the body's production of healthy gut bacteria contributing and could be responsible for the world's epidemics of obesity, childhood autism, and neurological disorders like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. New Hope Network (NHN) reports that child health advocacy group Mom's Across America is calling for glyphosate to be banned for contributing to childhood autism based on the study conducted by UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center and Chiba University Center for Forensic Mental Health of Japan. The study links women who were exposed to glyphosate while pregnant or lactating had children with higher rates of autism than mothers who were not exposed. According to NHN: "Moms Across America is calling for the removal of Roundup weed killer from the market after a troubling new study found that maternal exposure to high levels of glyphosate herbicide in lab rats caused autism symptoms in young male rats." Dr. Seneff's previous research concluded that "by 2025 half of all children will be diagnosed with autism if we continue at the current rate. This disturbing rise correlates with the increased use of glyphosate in agriculture," according to NHN. The National Institute of Health also reported Dr. Seneff's findings that glyphosate contributes to Celiac's disease and that: "Celiac disease patients have an increased risk to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, which has also been implicated in glyphosate exposure."
