Roundup Caused Plaintiff’s Cancer, Not Hepatitis Argues Lawyer

Hardeman, 70, sprayed more than 6,000 gallons of Roundup in his lifetime, according to his lawyer, he used the toxic formula on his large plot of land in Sonoma County, California, about 60 miles north of San Francisco.

This isn’t the first lawsuit against Bayer, over 11200 US plaintiffs have sued the company in state or federal courts on claims that Roundup Weed Killer had caused their Cancer. This is the second suite against the chemical giant to go to trial and the first to end up in a federal court.

Bayer argue that Hardeman’s Cancer was caused by hepatitis C which the plaintiff has been suffering with for decades. However, the case for Roundup being the cause is also a strong one.

A study which came out just last month concludes that exposure to Glyphosate-based herbicides such as roundup could increase the risk of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma by up to 41%.

The Authors of the study concluded that:

‘All of the meta-analyses conducted to date, including our own, consistently report the same key finding: exposure to GBHs (glyphosate-based herbicides) are associated with an increased risk of NHL,’ [Source]

If the verdict goes in favour of the Plantiffs claims this could set the ball rolling for an estimated $5 billion in lawsuits being awarded to those damaged by the lethal herbicide.
