In August of 2018 he was awarded a massive settlement, concluding:

Cancers Linked to Roundup Exposure

One of the many diseases that appear to be linked to Roundup is cancer. Most specifically Lymphoma, but other cancers as well. Many of the cancer risks appear to be linked to glyphosates negative impacts as a xenobiotic, but more research must be conducted.

In Argentina it was found that within a decade of glyphosate and genetically modified plants being introduced to the country, childhood cancer rates tripled. The same study also noted increases in birth defects, and other disease which appeared to coincide with the
introduction of glyphosate.

Aside from WHO's recognition of glyphosate as a "probable carcinogen", or probable cause of cancer, the WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) also concluded that glyphosate is a genotoxic, meaning it damages genes. The study went on to conclude that with increased exposure, malignant tumors were found to increase at multiple sites in laboratory animals, namely the liver and kidneys.

Additional Studies Linking the Carcinogenic Effects of Glyphosate

Additionally, those that are exposed to high levels of glyphosate, such as the individuals in the Who is most at risk section, may be increasing their risks for breast cancer. Several studies have found that glyphosate can act as an estrogen, which means it mimics estrogen a female sex hormone. Increased levels of estrogen are linked to a wide range of diseases, among them is cancer.

Other Diseases Caused By Glyphosate

There are many other diseases which may be associated with glyphosate. Though more research is needed, there is some evidence that suggests that Roundup use may lead to ALS, Depression, Parkinsons, Heart disease and more.
Should you Seek Legal Counsel for Roundup Exposure?

If you or someone you have known has been exposed to Roundup on a regular basis, and have an illness which has been previously linked to glyphosate exposure, speak with an attorney; there are now many attorneys experienced with Roundup exposure cases. There are many attorneys will review your claim free of charge, and let you know if you have a case of not. Some of them will even act as your attorney pro-bono and only charge a fee once you win the case.

We are poised to see a barrage of litigation continue against Monsanto for the health effects of Roundup. If you have been chronically exposed to Roundup, and you feel that you have a disease which may be linked to this exposure, don't hesitate to consult your physician and a lawyer. Protect Yourself From Roundup Exposure

The negative effects of Roundup are not typically short term. Though some people may have an immediate allergic reaction, most of the alleged diseases caused by roundup happen slowly with chronic long term use.

Pesticide and herbicide runoff is a source of many forms of pollution. Glyphosate, and many other pesticides like Atrazine are wreaking havoc on many water sources across the nation.

Pesticide runoff can contaminate surrounding streams and even groundwater supplies. Though this is mostly a concern on industrial level farms, it can still have an impact in your community if herbicides are too commonly used.

Its not just fertilizers, and animal waste that lead to algea blooms. The mass die off of plants sprayed by herbicide may also contribute to algea blooms the same way as fertilizer.
