Roundup Cancer Lawsuit Attorney in Houston
Glyphosate Exposure Claims
The chemical company Monsanto, owned by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, released the branded weedkiller Roundup decades ago, knowing the active ingredient glyphosate was a carcinogen. Monsanto neglected to put warning labels on any of the Roundup variations (there are more than 10 types of Roundup weedkiller). Many years later, those who have used Roundup in their home, garden, farm, or businesses are being diagnosed with a wealth of different illnesses, such as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. If you or a loved one were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and you have used the weedkiller Roundup, you may be entitled to benefits and financial compensation. Consulting with Vaughan Legal Trial Team is a wise move.

What Is a Carcinogen?
There are hundreds of known carcinogens people are exposed to everyday at home, school, or their work. By definition, a carcinogen is a cancer-causing agent or a substance that is capable of causing cancer. Carcinogens fall into different categories, such as known carcinogens and suspected carcinogens. Cancer-causing substances can also be classified based on whether they cause cancer in animals, humans, or both.
Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup weedkiller, is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide that is strongly linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, various other cancers, and other serious health issues in humans.
Carcinogens interfere with normal cellular division, metabolism, and respiration. They can also damage or alter the DNA in a cell. This interference can ultimately lead to uncontrolled cell division and proliferation, resulting in cancer.
What Is Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma?
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) is cancer of, or in, the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system (or lymph system) is part of your immune system and is responsible for fighting disease within the body.
