Thousands of lawsuits have been commenced against Monsanto (now owned by Bayer) with respect to their weed-killer product, Roundup. Plaintiffs involved in these litigations claim that the chemicals in Roundup, specifically glyphosate, have caused non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Plaintiffs further allege that the manufacturers of Roundup knew, or reasonably should have known, of the serious health risks Roundup posed to its users. If you believe that you developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma as a result of your prolonged exposure to RoundUp, you may have the right to pursue a civil suit.

What Do We Know So Far About the Dangers of Roundup?
Roundup was one of the most popular weed-killing products on the market. It has been on shelves since the 1970s and used in more than 160 different countries; however was recently removed from the market in 2021. For several years, however, consumers have been coming forward with allegations that using the weed killer has resulted in the development of serious and even terminal illnesses, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
The conditions allegedly related to consumers’ use of Roundup are said to be the fault of the chemical glyphosate. Glyphosate is an herbicide that is “probably carcinogenic,” according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Studies have had conflicting results, but many experts have found a link between the herbicide and cancer in humans.
Allegedly, both breathing in and skin contact with Roundup can result in serious cancers and conditions for consumers. If you’ve been diagnosed with one of these conditions after exposure to the herbicide, you may have a product liability case on your hands.
