New Study Links Roundup Ingredient to Cancer

The new study released, in April 2019 by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS)’s Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR); confirms a strong indication linking glyphosate to cancer.   The ATSDR’s findings could have a profound effect on pending litigation against Roundup manufacturer Monsanto over cancer and toxic exposure claims.

Motorcycles are fun vehicles, but they are also inherently dangerous. A motorcyclist has virtually no protection from external crash forces, and motorcycle safety gear is crucial for preventing catastrophic injuries and death from serious accidents.

April Product Recalls

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) collects and reports product recall data in the United States to help consumers track potentially dangerous products. Once a manufacturer identifies a defect or dangerous issue with a consumer product, the manufacturer must take appropriate steps to resolve the issue and prevent injuries to consumers. This usually involves a recall of some kind, during which the manufacturer attempts to retrieve compromised products and offer replacements or refunds. Alternatively, the manufacturer may send consumers missing parts, instruction manuals, or other materials to resolve their products’ defects.

According to data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), motorcycle accidents cause about 28 times more fatalities than passenger vehicle accidents based on miles traveled. The IIHS reports that helmets can reduce the chance of a fatal head injury by up to 37% and the chance of a brain injury by up to 67%. Types of...
