Why is Roundup considered dangerous?

Roundup contains an ingredient called glyphosate. Glyphosate is a chemical that is sprayed on different crops, specifically on corn and cotton in the United States. It is meant to kill nearby weeds, but, has been associated and linked to carcinogenic material that causes damage to the DNA and leads to cancer. As people are more exposed to carcinogens, the likelihood of them being diagnosed with cancers increases.

Glyphosate is a very dangerous carcinogen since it is very difficult to contain. Glyphosate is not only seen in Roundup, but in various other household products such as oatmeal. That is why it may be somewhat difficult to prove that the cancer is linked to Roundup glyphosate. Having an experienced product liability and mass tort attorney will help ease the process tremendously when filing a claim for the injuries that you have suffered. There are several key pieces of evidence and records that you must have to show to prove the link between cancer and Roundup.
