What is Accord?
Accord® XRT II Herbicide is a non-selective herbicide that contains glyphosate, the same active ingredient as Monsanto’s Roundup®. Accord also includes a unique third-generation DMA salt.
What is the problem?
Glyphosate, the powerful weed-killing chemical in Accord, was upgraded to a “probable human carcinogen” by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in 2015. Their concern was based on multiple studies linking glyphosate with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma the U.S., Canada, and Sweden.
Glyphosate Cancer Lawsuits
Over 4,000 lawsuits were filed against Monsanto by people who developed lymphoma after using glyphosate-based herbicides. These lawsuits claim that Monsanto failed to warn about the risk of cancer and advertised herbicides like Roundup as “safer than table salt.”
Jury Awards $289 Million in Cancer Lawsuit
In August 2018, a groundskeeper from California named DeWayne Johnson was awarded $289 million by a jury who decided that his cancer was likely caused by glyphosate exposure. The jury determined that Monsanto did not provide adequate warnings about cancer from glyphosate.
