Why Is Harley Recalling Some Models?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration warned, “Brakes may fail due to not flushing the brake fluid,” back in 2018. Essentially, it means that the hydraulic valves in the ABS become blocked because the fluid builds up inside it. This eventually leads to malfunctioning in the brake system.

If no action is taken for a prolonged period of time, the braking fluid solidifies up inside the valve and ultimately leads to complete failure of the brakes.

You should keep in mind that all CVO Touring, touring, and VSRC motorcycles that were manufactured between 2008 and 2011 and equipped with the anti-lock braking system are recalled. In other words, over 30 models were recalled.  You can check to see if you Harley has been recalled:   Harley Davidson Recall Information

Exposure to Roundup weed killer has been linked to an increased risk of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.  Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (also known as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, NHL, or sometimes just lymphoma) is a cancer that starts in white blood cells called lymphocytes, which are part of the body’s immune system.  If you or a family member has been exposed to Roundup and recently developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma, you may be entitled to compensation.

What Is Roundup?

Roundup Weed Killer is the most commonly used herbicide in the United States. It was first developed in 1970 by the Monsanto agricultural corporation. Since then it’s been widely used by farmers, landscapers, agricultural workers, and home gardeners all over the world.

The main chemical component in Roundup is called glyphosate. In a recent study by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), glyphosate was designated as a probable human carcinogen.

IARC Monograph 112 reported that glyphosate and its commercial formulations can produce oxidative stress and damage DNA in human cells. Oxidative damage to DNA can lead to cancer. In addition, it further concluded that the cancer most associated with glyphosate exposure is non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Two Alabama residents were featured in New York Times article “They’re Falsely Accused of Shoplifting, but Retailers Demand Penalties: Walmart and other companies are using aggressive legal tactics to get the money back, demanding payments even when people haven’t been convicted of wrongdoing.”

MOBILE, Ala. — Crystal Thompson was at home watching the Rose Bowl parade when a county sheriff came to arrest her for shoplifting from the local Walmart.

Ms. Thompson, 43, was baffled and scared. An agoraphobic, she had not shopped at a Walmart in more than a year. She was taken to a Mobile jail, searched, held in a small room and required to remove her false teeth, something she didn’t even do in front of her husband.

Although the link between asbestos and cancer has been clear for some time, researchers have recently discovered why asbestos is so dangerous to the body. According to new research from the Swiss National Science Foundation, the reason asbestos is so dangerous is that chronic exposure leads to a type of tissue repair, which causes the immune system to weaken, making it too weak to combat tumor formation. This can lead to mesothelioma, a very specific type of lung cancer that is only caused by exposure to asbestos.
