Roundup Causing Kidney Disease? What to Know
If you work often in your yard or garden and use herbicides, you should know about the Roundup lawsuit. This is a case about the popular herbicide Roundup potentially being linked to the development of kidney disease, lymphoma, and liver failure. While Roundup may be an effective herbicide, it’s been shown to be extremely dangerous, and if you have found yourself developing serious illnesses like kidney disease or liver organ failure, you should know that you may be eligible for compensation for your distress.
Roundup was a popular herbicide to be used in home gardens, lawns, and industrially on large scale agricultural farms and fields. However, Roundup contains chemicals that can be extremely dangerous if someone is exposed to them.
Dangers of Pesticides & Carcinogens
Roundup has been shown to contain glyphosate, a compound that the International Agency for Research on Cancer has called a “probable human carcinogen.” If something is carcinogenic, it means that it has the propensity and capability to cause cancers. It has also been shown to trigger the development of serious organ failure, particularly affecting the kidneys and liver.
Who is at Risk for Using Roundup?
The dangerous effects of Roundup do not only affect people who use herbicides in their home gardens and lawns, they also—and in many cases more so—affect those who work in agricultural careers or who assist on farms and fields. Exposure to these chemicals should be taken seriously, and Roundup has already been regulated in many countries across the world.
What to Do if You’re Affected
If you or a loved one have used Roundup in your lawn care routine or work often in places that could expose you to harmful herbicides, and later developed kidney disease, lymphoma, or another disease, you may be eligible for compensation for medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. You should retain the help of a personal injury attorney that has experience in cases of disease caused by Roundup or other chemical herbicides.
