Roundup – Bad for Weeds AND People

On behalf of Joel Rhine of Rhine Law Firm, P.C. posted January 5, 2017

weed-sprayYes, it’s the dead of winter, but it won’t be long until spring will be in the air and suburbanites and groundskeepers all over the Tar Heel State will be anxious to make their lawns green and weed free again. At the same time, farmers throughout North Carolina will be getting ready to start spring plowing and planting. What these groups all have in common is the heavy use of one of the world’s most popular herbicides, Roundup.

Roundup was developed in the early 1970s by biotechnology giant, Monsanto, and has since become one of their biggest cash cows. But French researchers, as well as researchers from MIT and the World Health Organization (WHO), claim that there may be a link between the weed killer’s main ingredient, glyphosate, and a variety of health ailments, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma, leukemia, autism, infertility, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and too many others to name.

Monsanto maintains that, while their product is deadly to weeds, it has no negative effect on mammals. But many people disagree and lawsuits against the company are mounting. But having a successful lawsuit against a mammoth corporation like Monsanto is not going to be easy. They have deep pockets and high priced lawyers on their side. To get the settlement you deserve, it is vital that you have aggressive representation. If you feel you’ve had health issue related to Roundup exposure, please contact the Wilmington personal injury attorneys at  Rhine Law Firm, P.C. Just call (866) 772-9960 for a free, no obligation consultation.
