Glyphosate and Its Carcinogenic Properties
Glyphosate was discovered in the United States by a Monsanto chemist in 1970. The company patented the chemical as a weed killing agent and began marketing it as a safe herbicide solution, branded as Roundup, in 1974. Until 2000, Monsanto held the sole rights to glyphosate production.
Identified as “probably carcinogenic to humans” by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2015, the cancer-causing characteristics of glyphosate have recently come to light in a series of lawsuits.
Glyphosate exposure reportedly contributes to several health issues, including but not limited to:
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- B-cell lymphoma
- Multiple myelomas
- Reproductive issues
- Developmental issues
The cases have resulted in million-dollar verdicts for several plaintiffs, following trials that focused on Roundup’s role in cancer development and Monsanto/Bayer’s liability in the cases. In spite of years of advertisements highlighting Roundup’s “safety,” and the corporations’ continued defense of their product, juries have identified Monsanto and Bayer as negligent parties in these cases. There is evidence (including internal emails exchanged with the EPA) that the Roundup producers were aware that the herbicide is carcinogenic, yet failed to inform their consumers of the risks associated with long-term use.
