Users of the weed killer Roundup may get non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

The weed killer Roundup may cause cancer even though it has been used for decades by landscapers, agricultural workers, and homeowners. It seems to do a remarkable job of killing weeds and other plants. Unfortunately, it also has done a remarkable job of exposing users to a cancer-causing chemical called glyphosate, a major ingredient of the product.

Overview of Roundup Lawsuits

Thousands of Roundup users have filed lawsuits against Monsanto, which was the original manufacturer of Roundup until it was purchased in 2018 by the “big pharma” company, Bayer AG. The lawsuits allege that the manufacturer knew that glyphosate was a carcinogen but continued using it in Roundup without warning the public about the risk of developing cancer due to glyphosate exposure when using Roundup. As a result, the plaintiffs allege they developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a sometimes fatal cancer.

Some of the cases have gone to trial where juries have awarded billions of dollars in damages to the plaintiffs. For example, a husband and wife, both of whom developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after using Roundup for more than 30 years, received $2 billion. Another cancer victim received $80 million. Since the massive jury awards, approximately 80 percent of Roundup cases have been settled out of court.

Each case is different, and the amount of the damages is determined by the specific facts of the individual plaintiff. Monsanto has not always lost in court. In at least five cases, the jury determined that the use of Roundup did not cause the plaintiff’s cancer.
