Roundup Weed Killer Lawsuits

Roundup, one of the most commonly used weed killers, has been linked to various forms of cancer in multiple studies. In March 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, as being “probably carcinogenic.”  This revelation put Monsanto, an agricultural product manufacturing giant, under scrutiny for not warning consumers about the cancer risks.

What Do I Need To Know About Roundup?

Roundup is a powerful herbicide used to control weeds on over 168 million acres nationwide. This popular weed killer was developed by Monsanto, a trusted and leading brand in agricultural biotech for over a century. There is no dispute about the effectiveness of Roundup as a weed killer. The issue is with glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup and also the focus of many studies linking glyphosate to various forms of cancer.

Who Has the Greatest Risk of Developing Cancer From Roundup?

Individuals most at risk for developing cancer from Roundup are those who used the weed killer frequently and over a long period. Certain people may have been exposed to Roundup regularly and over an extended period may include:

  • Farmers
  • Landscapers
  • Garden or nursery workers
  • Professional or personal gardeners
  • Groundskeepers, such as at golf courses
  • Maintenance workers, such as at schools
  • Other types of agricultural workers

What Are the Main Health Risks of Using Roundup?

Significant research that spans decades links glyphosate as a probable cause of cancer. Studies conducted between 2008 and 2015 specifically associated glyphosate with:

  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  • Leukemia
  • B-cell lymphoma
  • Myeloma

In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced that studies revealed glyphosate was a probable carcinogen to humans. The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry came out in support of these findings in 2019.

What Symptoms May Accompany Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma?

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is so named because it is a type of cancer that begins in your lymphatic system. Your lymphatic system normally helps you fight off sickness and infections. These types of white cells, called lymphocytes, are the infection fighters, and they live in your lymph nodes, spleen and bone marrow. When these white blood cells start growing out of control, it can result in cancerous tumors.

Symptoms of this cancer may include:

  • Unexplained fever
  • Feeling tired or fatigued constantly
  • Swollen lymph nodes in your neck, armpits or groin area
  • Persistent and excessive sweating at night
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Coughing, chest pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Difficulty breathing

If you experience several of these symptoms, it is important you see a doctor immediately. Treatment options for this type of cancer may include a combination of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy and stem cell transplant therapy.
