Roundup Cancer Lawsuit –
Monsanto is being sued for its Roundup linked to cancer. Roundup (glyphosate) use has been linked with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL), Multiple Myeloma (MM), Hairy Cell Leukemia (HCL), Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). Monsanto is responsible for the genetic perversion of more than 90 percent of the traits in genetically engineered corn, soy and cotton worldwide. Monsanto’s glyphosate herbicide is used on most genetically engineered crops (GMOs).
GMO Seeds withstand Roundup
Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) seeds are chemically engineered to withstand Roundup, which is made to kill whatever is not modified to survive it. When first introduced in the early 1990s, Monsanto and other biotech chemical companies claimed GMO crops could do many things. They claimed GMOs would produce higher yields than conventional crops, make more nutritious food, resist climate stress, reduce pesticide use. Not one of these claims has materialized; in fact, the opposite has proved true for every claim. GMO crops contain pesticide in their very seeds. This is an enormous problem, because anyone eating GMOs is threatening gut health, which accounts for 80% of the human immune system.
Monsanto’s Chemical Perversion of Nature
Monsanto’s Roundup, its whole ball game, chemically perverts and threatens all that is natural and healthy. Monsanto sells terminator seeds along with its Roundup weed killer. Sadly, too many farmers bought into the idea of this “simplified” weed control. More and more began to use the GMO seeds with glyphosate. Today, more than 90 percent of the corn, soy, canola, and sugar beets grown in the U.S. are engineered to withstand glyphosate. the problem is that our bodies are not engineered to withstand glyphosate’s toxic assault. Nor can pollinator bees withstand it. More than half of our pollinator bees are dead from pesticide spraying and similar toxic assaults on the land. Because bees are so important to plant growth, it is not hyperbole to say that glyphosate threatens our very survival.
Roundup / Glyphosate Probably Carcinogenic
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared Roundup a probable carcinogen. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in March 2015 issued a new assessment for glyphosate – Roundup’s main active ingredient – with a focus on agricultural exposure. IARC classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic” to human beings. The mechanism may not yet be exactly clear, but Roundup’s attack on human gut bacteria is a leading candidate. Monsanto claims that Roundup attacks an enzyme found only in plants but not in animals and people; but that claim is false. Roundup attacks healthy flora and fauna in the human gut. Monsanto has been consequently sued for false advertising.

What is Glyphosate?
Glypphosate is the main active ingredient in Roundup, Monsanto’s top-selling herbicide. The problem with glyphosate is magnified by various adjuvants mixed into Roundup that compound its toxicity. Roundup is much more toxic than glyphosate alone.
Glyphosate and Lymphoma
Occupational exposure to glyphosate in the U.S., Canada and Sweden show an increased risk for non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL), Multiple Myeloma (MM), Hairy Cell Leukemia (HCL), and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL).
Agriculture Workers At Risk
Agricultural workers are believed to be those most at risk for cancer via glyphosate exposure. Those working with glyphosate can be exposed through the skin, inhalation or ingestion. Roundup can contact the skin from direct application or aerial spraying; it can be breathed by those working in or near Roundup-treated fields, and/or it can be ingested by anyone breathing in or near Roundup-tainted fields.
