A North Carolina groundskeeper was awarded $78 million from Monsanto for damages. Those damages were cancer.
Dewayne Johnson is 46-years old. He had been spraying Roundup on school grounds for years. Sometimes the chemical would get onto his skin. Dewayne hadn’t heard the rumours about Roundup causing cancer. Since there are no health warnings on Roundup, Dewayne thought it was safe. By the time he knew something was wrong, it was too late. Four years ago he noticed a rash, that rash turned out to be the beginning of non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. His doctors estimate he has at most two years to live. He’ll leave behind a wife and three children.
There’s something the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) can do today to make sure others aren’t faced with a similar fate. Tell the EPA and FDA to ban Roundup.
Dewayne’s story has now unleashed a floodgate of lawsuits against Monsanto, with 8,700 plaintiffs suing for similar reasons. Since the 1970’s, Monsanto’s Roundup has included a harmful substance called glyphosate. Scientists have studied the effects of this chemical and determined that it can cause serious health impacts, including cancer. Traces of glyphosate have even been found in the food that we eat. Demand the EPA and FDA ban glyphosate. Chemicals that can cause cancer shouldn’t be sprayed on our food and yards.
Roundup can cause irreversible life threatening damage to people. It could even harm consumers who eat glyphosate laced foods. Tell the EPA and FDA to stand up for Americans, ban Monsanto’s cancerous herbicides.
