Roundup® Weed Killer Linked to Cancer
Roundup® Weed Killer is a lawncare product found in many homes. Recently, studies conducted at the International Agency for Research on Cancer—a division of the World Health Organization—discovered a possible link between glyphosate, the main herbicidal ingredient in Roundup, and certain types of cancer, such as non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
If you or someone you love was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma or any other type of cancer after using Roundup or a similar herbicide, get in touch with us now, and let us start protecting your rights today.
How Does Roundup® Expose People to Glyphosate?
Roundup is common in homes and farms nationwide, which has resulted in countless people being exposed to it and its ingredients, including glyphosate, since its introduction in the 1970s.
Roundup and glyphosate exposure can occur in several different ways, such as:
- Breathing airborne particles after the product was sprayed
- Absorbing chemicals through the skin after touching treated plants and weeds
- Drinking contaminated water that was exposed to the product
- Eating food that was grown in contaminated soil
People in all geographic areas of the U.S., including suburbs, farms, rural areas, and cities, may have been exposed to Roundup, glyphosate, and their health-related risks.
Roundup Cancer Victim Receives $289 Million Jury Award
In August 2018, a jury in San Francisco awarded $289 million in damages to a man who was diagnosed with terminal cancer after routinely using Roundup as part of his job. The case, filed on behalf of a former school groundskeeper, was the first Roundup cancer case to go to trial. Thousands more are pending in state and federal courts across the United States.
Jurors in the case cited the need to punish Monsanto for their negligence as a significant factor behind the size of the award, and the outcome of the case may set a precedent for verdicts to follow. If you or a loved one were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma or another type of cancer after using glyphosate, you may be entitled to significant compensation.

Glyphosate’s Link to Cancer Is Under Investigation
While there is no definitive link between herbicides that contain glyphosate, including Roundup, and certain types of cancer, the products are now under scrutiny and further investigation. In addition, there has been a recent surge of lawsuits filed by people worldwide who believe they developed cancer, including non-Hodgkin lymphoma, after being exposed to herbicides that contain glyphosate.
