Roundup Increasingly Targeted in Lawsuits

November 5, 2019

The multinational firm Bayer AG is facing thousands of new lawsuits alleging that its herbicide Roundup causes cancer, following “a blitz of advertising from attorneys seeking new clients,” says a Bloomberg report. But a cancer epidemiologist argues in the latest Issues that Roundup “has been exhaustively reviewed by regulatory agencies all over the world and repeatedly found to be safe.” Moreover, a comparison of the use of herbicides such as Roundup that contain glyphosate and cancer rates shows no rise in cancer incidence even as glyphosate’s use dramatically increased.
