Roundup has been in the news for years after people who used it or were exposed to it developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and won billions of dollars in settlements. Despite Roundup’s manufacturer being required to pay massive settlements to those victims, the product is still on store shelves in America!
That’s because the manufacturer still denies that Roundup’s primary ingredient, an herbicide called glyphosate, is dangerous. Juries nationwide are disagreeing with this, and they’ve required the manufacturer to pay settlements ranging from $80 million all the way up to $2 billion to people who developed cancer after using or being exposed to this dangerous product.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer said in 2015 that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic.” That alone should be grounds for having the product pulled from store shelves and a massive nationwide recall, but those steps haven’t been taken by the manufacturer. That means people are still able to purchase Roundup and use it at their homes, putting themselves and their loved ones—including children—in danger.
