Studies Now Link Roundup To Cancer Diagnoses
Products sold in the United States must meet certain health and safety standards. When companies fail to make sure their products are safe, they put consumers’ lives at risk. Recent lawsuits involving the weed killer Roundup, owned by Monsanto, are a perfect example.
Studies now show that Roundup’s active ingredient, glyphosate, causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other cancers. Litigation documents show that Monsanto has known about these effects for 30 years and worked to cover them up, even faking data regarding the product’s danger.
If you or a loved one used Roundup in the past and has since developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia or a related cancer, you may be entitled to compensation through litigation.

Many People Are At High Risk For Illness
As with most chemical exposure, the more someone has faced exposure to glyphosate, the more likely they are to develop an illness. People at the highest risk include farmworkers, landscape workers, and employees of garden centers or nurseries. Anyone can inhale the chemical during spraying or mixing or ingest it through contaminated drinking water and food.
Glyphosate causes internal damage through chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation can lead to cancer. In addition, glyphosate may damage liver function. Unfortunately, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have raised allowable limits of glyphosate exponentially since 1996, doing nothing to control the sale and widespread use of the chemical.
Finding Justice Through The Courts
Those injured by Roundup have begun seeking compensation from the court system, including Nebraska farmers who filed a class-action lawsuit in 2016. By the end of 2018, injured farmers and other plaintiffs had filed over 650 lawsuits. If you or a loved one suffers from cancer caused by exposure to Roundup, we will fight on your behalf to recover the following damages:
- Pain and suffering
- Wage loss
- Medical expenses
- Any other economic damages
- Punitive damages, if possible
