Monsanto, Roundup weed and grass-killer manufacturer, has been accused of not warning users of the increased risk of developing non-Hodgkins lymphoma and other forms of cancer in humans when using this product.
Lawsuits accuse Monsanto of being aware of this risk for more than 30 years, but intentionally making the decision not to warn the public, and even promoting the product to be safe and non-toxic to humans, pets, birds, and fish.

Litigation documents prove that Monsanto maneuvered legitimate studies exposing the dangers of glyphosate, and created a campaign of misinformation to convince government agencies, farmers, and the general population that its product was safe.
Roundup is a well-known herbicide utilized to kill weeds and grasses that are unappealing or damage crops. Its main active ingredient and what makes it an extremely dangerous product is glyphosate. Monsanto discovered the potential use of glyphosate as an herbicide in 1970 and started advertising it in 1974.
In 2015 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) concluded that glyphosate is a probable carcinogen to humans and animals. The IARC is the cancer agency of the World Health Organization.
250 million pounds of glyphosate are sprayed every year on crops, lawns, sidewalks, public and private parks, and golf courses, among others. This number has been increasing in the last years due to the expansion of genetically modified (GMO) crops that are designed to resist the killing power of glyphosate products.
While Monsanto has earned $4.8 billion in revenue from its sales of Roundup, innocent people get sick because of their repeated contact to this harmful herbicide
