Inside Look – Monsanto and its Roundup
Steve Brooks, managing partner of Brooks Law Group, joins us this week for another episode of Inside Look by Brooks.
Today, Steve will be continuing a conversation on Monsanto's Roundup Weed Killer. Roundup has been in the news lately after a jury awarded $289 million to a former school groundskeeper who developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma after being exposed to Roundup.
Think that you're safe just because you only buy organic? Think again. Trace amounts of glyphosate, enough to cause cancer, have been found in organic products like wine that were never treated by Roundup, but came into contact with it from overspray from neighboring crop fields.
Despite this, Monsanto continues to claim there are no risks involved with exposure to its Roundup line of products. Even after the OEHHA announced in 2017 that glyphosate would be added to its list of chemicals known by the state of California to cause cancer.
