Roundup Concentrate Attorneys in Denver and Aurora, CO
What is Roundup?
- Roundup is an herbicide used to kill weeds, advertised for both commercial and personal gardening/farming practices. The product was developed by Monsanto Corp and first hit the market in 1974. A recent article by the the Huffington Post suggested that the now defunct industrial product safety testing company, Industrial Bio-Test (IBT) Laboratories who originally tested Roundup in the early 1970’s for consumer use, had falsified data that was apparently provided to make Roundup seem safer than it actually was.
What is Glyphosate?
- Glyphosate is the active ingredient that is marketed under the commercial name Roundup. While cleared for use by the EPA as long as proper safety measures are taken, in 2017 California announced its intention to list glyphosate as a carcinogen. While research is divided on whether to firmly classify glyphosate as a carcinogen, litigation claims have been filed over a possible connection between the use of Roundup and cancer diagnosis.
- Bayer AG, a German pharmaceutical company who recently bought Monsanto Corporation was recently ordered to pay a $289 million dollar verdict, after a California groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson brought a suit against the company, stating that his prolonged exposure to Roundup caused his terminal cancer diagnosis of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. More information on this case can be found here.
