Free Consultation to See if you Have a Claim for Cancer Caused by Roundup Weed Killer
Monsanto (now Bayer) has been hit with multiple lawsuits linking their weed killer Roundup linked to the development of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other forms of cancer. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma can cause lymph nodes to enlarge. When this happens in lymph nodes near the surface of the skin – such as in the sides of the neck, groin, underarm area and above the collar bone – it may be seen as a lump. Clark Law Firm is investigating these matters and as been helping people who have been diagnosed with cancer find out if they have a claim.
Roundup is used to kill weeds that compete with agricultural crops. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, works by inhibiting a specific enzyme required for plant growth.

Monsanto Roundup weed killer is designated as a probable human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Roundup first entered the market in the 1970s claims that Roundup is dangerous has been denied by Monsanto for years while advertising its safeness. New information has now come to light about Monsanto’s knowledge of how dangerous is though the “Monsanto Papers.” These documents show that Monsanto executives have known for decades the danger of Glyphosate. Instead of protecting consumers Monsanto instead decided to not share the information while continuing to sell Roundup.
