RoundUp Cancer Lawsuit
And RoundUp Settlement Updates.
RoundUp cancer lawsuit alleges that owner Monsanto, now Bayer, had known for decades that Roundup, and its main ingredient glyphosate, had caused cancer.
Roundup Cancer lawsuit
The weed and root killer Roundup™, which is currently the most popular and best selling herbicide in the world, is being investigated for claims that its active ingredient “glyphosate” may be linked to an increased risk of cancer, or more specifically, non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL). Plaintiffs also claim that the product’s manufacturer, Monsanto, failed to sufficiently warn its users of these increased risks in order to avoid profit losses, as the company has known of the link between its product and potential cancer cases for more than 30 years.
Does roundup cause cancer?
Lawsuits filed against Monsanto (the manufacturer of Roundup™) contain a combination of the following allegations:
- Exposure to glyphosate can cause cancer
- Monsanto has known that exposure to glyphosate presents health risks, including a risk of developing cancer
- Monsanto’s Roundup™ labels fail to warn consumers about the risk of cancer
- Monsanto misrepresented Roundup’s health and environmental risks, ultimately misinforming government agencies, farmers, and the public of its safety issues

- Follicular lymphoma
- Chronic lymphocytic leukemia
- Mantle cell lymphoma
- Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma
- Hairy cell leukemia
