About Toxic Products

Siri & Glimstad and affiliated attorneys represent individuals that develop cancer, and other harm, from the toxic components found in some products, including baby food, hair straightening chemicals, pesticides, and firefighting foams. In many situations, the hazards of these products were concealed, and consumers were not aware of the risks. At Siri & Glimstad, we seek to hold the manufacturers of these products accountable for the harm they have caused.

Roundup

Roundup is a weed killer whose main ingredient is glyphosate, which was deemed “probably carcinogenic in humans” by the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2015.

While the FDA and EPA have declared glyphosate safe and it remains in products on the market, research has found an up to 70% increased risk of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after long-term exposure to Roundup. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma affects the lymphatic system, which is part of the body’s immune system. Symptoms include swollen lymph nodes (neck, armpit, groin), chest or stomach pain, coughing, trouble breathing, fatigue, fever, night sweats and unexplained weight loss.
