Occupations at High Risk of Cancer Caused by Glyphosate

Using Roundup with glyphosate every day in the course of your job could cost you your life

Friday, March 2, 2018 - People that have used Roundup herbicide in their occupations and have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) and the estates of those who have died from the disease, claim that Monsanto deliberately failed to warn them of the complications to their health that could result. Wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits against Monsanto, maker of the widely-used herbicide Roundup, now number in the hundreds and could eventually reach into the thousands.

Jack McCall, a California avocado farmer, died on December 26, 2015, of a massive stroke related to his treatment for non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a rare and most deadly form of cancer. One of the first to file suit against Monsanto was his widow, Teri McCall who claims that her husband used the chemical almost daily for over a decade to spray their crops and would frequently come home covered head to toe in the chemical. The lawsuit alleges that Monsanto had advanced knowledge of the link between glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, and incidences of cancer, and failing to warn consumers. Jack McCall had no other illnesses, never smoke, had no history of cancer in his family, and was extremely physically fit. Mr. McCall exclusively used Roundup herbicide on his farm as he believed Monsanto's representation that the chemical was "non-toxic" to humans. Like the McCalls, others that regularly used Roundup in their occupations and developed cancer are suing the company.

Another widow that has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Monsanto for causing the death of her husband is Camden County Missouri resident, Phyliss Kennedy. Her husband Van Kennedy used Roundup herbicide to kill weeds on his lawn and in his garden on a regular basis every year from 2009 - 2012.

An electrician at the South Florida Power Authority, Enrique Ruiz is suing Monsanto claiming exposure to Roundup Ready caused his NHL cancer. Ruiz used Roundup herbicide on a regular basis to kill weeds around electrical facilities. The lawsuit alleges that critical data from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was withheld from the public that showed the link between glyphosate and NHL.

In Texas, migrant farm workers Joselin Barrera and Elias de la Garza developed non-Hodgkins Lymphoma after being exposed to Roundup for years while picking fruits and vegetables and are suing Monsanto.

The case against Monsanto is bolstered by the many scientific studies that link Glyphosate with NHL. On July 7, 2017, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) added glyphosate to the state of California's official list of chemicals that cause cancer and the ruling falls under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, otherwise known as Proposition 65. Monsanto and western agri-business organizations that rely on glyphosate for their living fought the inclusion and have prevented the mandatory cancer warning label on the product, however, glyphosate remains on the state's cancer-causing chemical list. The state's glyphosate cancer list inclusion was prompted by the International Agency for Cancer Research (IARC) pronouncement that glyphosate was, "probably carcinogenic." The IARC is part of the prestigious and independent World Health Organization.
