Roundup Concentrate Attorneys in Denver and Aurora, CO
What is Roundup?
Roundup is an herbicide whose main ingredient is Glyphosate. This is used to kill weeds for both commercial and personal gardening/farming practices. The product was created by Monsanto Corp and first hit the market in 1974. It is largely available for purchase in everyday retail stores. In 2017, California announced its intention to list glyphosate as a carcinogen. Research is divided on whether to firmly classify glyphosate as a carcinogen. Many litigation claims have been filed over a possible connection between the use of Roundup and the diagnosis of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a serious form of cancer.
