Monsanto Roundup Legal Help
Studies show Roundup weed killer, a popular herbicide used at home and commercially, has links to cancer. Thousands of lawsuits are now pending against Monsanto, the agrochemical company that makes the weed killer, and its parent company Bayer. Companies, like Monsanto, have a responsibility to warn the public about the risks of using their products.
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after being exposed to Roundup or a glyphosate herbicide, you may be entitled to compensation.

Exposure Increases Risk of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
The World Health Organization declared glyphosate herbicide, the active ingredient in Roundup, a probable carcinogen in 2015. Researchers link several lymphatic cancers to the herbicide. A 2019 study reports that heavy glyphosate exposure increases your chance of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma by 41%. Liver disease and the blood cancer leukemia are also associated with exposure to the weed killer.
Cancers Linked to Roundup (glyphosate) Exposure:
- Follicular Lymphoma
- Large B-Cell Lymphoma
- Mantle Cell Lymphoma
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- T-Cell Lymphoma
- Other Cancers
Who is at most risk of Roundup exposure?
Globally, Roundup weed killer is the most widely used weed killer. It is the number one herbicide in American agriculture, with an estimated 270 million to 290 million pounds used each year. Roundup is used both commercially and residentially on large and small properties. In recent years, Monsanto genetically modified corn and soybean crops to withstand frequent heavy treatments of Roundup herbicide. In the latest Pesticide Sales and Usage report, the EPA notes that American farmers almost doubled their glyphosate usage over the previous reporting period.
People using Roundup weed killer for many years or those who regularly spray large amounts have a higher exposure rate. Chances of a cancer diagnosis increase with extensive exposure to the herbicide. People who are at the most risk of Roundup exposure are those who work directly with the weed killer.
People at Risk of Roundup Exposure:
- Applicators who spray Roundup
- Farm and crop workers
- Landscapers and groundskeepers
- Workers at farm stands
- Workers at large home improvement stores
- Workers in smaller nurseries and garden centers
Roundup Weed Killer Lawsuits
In July 2018, a judge determined that all federal lawsuits could move forward against Bayer and Monsanto, over concerns that those exposed to Roundup are at risk for developing Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
In three landmark verdicts, juries concluded that Roundup was responsible for the plaintiffs’ non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The most recent occurred in May 2019 for $2 billion (reduced to $87 million). The next two juries delivered verdicts in March 2019 for $80 million (reduced to $25.3 million) and in August 2018 for $289 million (reduced to $78 million). The juries also agreed that Monsanto failed to warn consumers of the known health dangers associated with Roundup weed killer.
