Rappers Waka Flocka Flame and Safaree Samuels took to Instagram to show displeasure at several food brands earlier last month. Waka Flocka Flame shared an image denouncing popular brands such as Corn Flakes, Honey Nut Cheerios, Frosted Flakes, Raisin Bran, Ritz Crackers, and Doritos products alongside a picture of Dewayne Johnson who received a $289 million jury award in a case against Monsanto.

The rapper denounced the companies because they contain Glyphosate. Glyphosate is the same active ingredient found in RoundUp products owned by Monsanto, which has been alleged to cause cancer formations such as Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. When Dewayne Johnson was diagnosed with cancer and sued Monsanto, the jury awarded Dewayne with the $200+ verdict. However, the judge presiding in the case reduced the amount to $78 million.
Dewayne Johnson worked as a groundskeeper and was regularly exposed to Glyphosate as a part of his job. He would frequently use another Monsanto product, Ranger Pro, which is the non-brand name version of RoundUp and contains concentrated levels of Glyphosate in order to kill weeds. Dewayne Johnson was 42 when developed a strange rash and was subsequently diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.
Unfortunately, Glyphosate has been found in the popular food brands that rapper Waka Flocka Flame posted about in dangerous amounts, according to The Sun. Prolonged exposure to the chemical, especially in concentrated amounts, can lead to non-Hodgkins Lymphoma or other types of cancer.
The team at Forester Haynie is currently evaluating and filing cases against Monsanto on behalf of people who have been diagnosed with cancer because of the prolonged exposure to their products. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with any form of cancer due to the exposure to RoundUp products call the team at Forester Haynie today.
