Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup®, is one of the most commonly used herbicides in the world. Approximately 77,240 people are likely to be diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2020, according to the American Cancer Society. Roundup® exposure has been linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. However, there are many causes of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and not everyone who has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma was exposed to Roundup®.
Why You Need to Know About Roundup® Exposure
Before you can recover damages in a Roundup® case, you must prove that Roundup® was more likely than not the cause of your cancer. To do that, you will need to know where and when you were exposed to Roundup® so that you can present that evidence to Bayer during settlement negotiations or to the court during litigation.
Where Roundup® Is Used
In Illinois, Roundup® is regularly used on:
- Commercial properties. Diverse businesses such as farms and golf courses routinely use glyphosate on their properties. Groundskeepers, farmers, agricultural workers, and even golfers could be exposed to Roundup®.
- Residential properties. Roundup® is also used to keep residential properties pretty. Homeowners and gardeners could be at risk of suffering Roundup® exposure complications.
To the extent possible, you want to know the location and dates of all of your Roundup® exposure.
