Some Companies Never Learn

Jun 07

If you catch a child doing something that they shouldn’t be doing, they’ll usually try to come up with an excuse for their actions. Cookies before dinner? They just love their mom’s baking.

Staying in all day and watching TV instead of playing outside? It’s too hot, or their friends couldn’t join them? If they do poorly on a test, the teacher was obviously out to get them.

These are all poor excuses for an act of irresponsibility on the child’s part. Their parent will scold them and send them to their room.

Usually, this is how the child learns right from wrong. It takes someone calling them out on their actions for them to grow as a person. With any luck, they will grow up to be honest adults who can take responsibility for their actions instead of deflecting the blame. This is how it goes for most people.

However, some people don’t learn from their childhood mistakes. They continue to lie and refuse to be held accountable for what they have done, refusing punishment by any means necessary.

In the seventies, Monsanto released Roundup, an herbicide that could kill off invasive species of plants while keeping other plants safe. It did so by using glyphosate as one of the main ingredients.

This product quickly became the most popular herbicide in the United States. Years after Roundup’s release, glyphosate was listed as a carcinogen, meaning people who were exposed to it had a greater risk of certain cancers like leukemia or myeloma.

If that wasn’t enough, Roundup has been suggested as the cause for a host of other diseases such as diabetes and ADHD. These health issues are often not cured by a week of medication. Instead, the individual who was affected will have to undergo months if not years of expensive treatment.

In addition to the mountain of medical bills piling up, they will also accrue a lot of lost wages when they have to miss work for treatment. Their illness is not their fault.

Rather, it’s Monsanto’s. Monsanto knew about the dangers of using glyphosate in their products and continued to do so anyway. In doing so, they willingly put millions of lives at risk.

One Roundup lawsuit after another has begun to spring up as a way to fight back against Monsanto. These class-action lawsuits can help victims affected by the herbicide get the settlement they deserve.

Going through a time-consuming treatment is bad enough; these victims shouldn’t go bankrupt as a result of Monsanto’s inability to tell the truth.

If you or a loved one has gotten sick and you think it’s because of exposure to Roundup, speak up and find an attorney who’s willing to go to bat for you. Most of us were able to learn right from wrong as we grew up.

Monsanto apparently never learned, but it’s time they do. Help the thousands affected by their dishonesty and hold Monsanto accountable for the lives that they’ve forever altered.
