Weed Killer Roundup and Glyphosate Cancer Lawsuits

Did you get cancer from using RoundUp or other weed killing products containing glyphosates?  MCT Law is actively investigating these claims to file lawsuits on behalf of cancer victims. Recent jury verdicts found Monsanto guilty of not warning customers about the risks of using RoundUp. These plaintiffs received diagnoses of cancer caused by exposure to glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUp.

  • In 2018 a California jury ordered Monsanto to pay $289 million to DeWayne Johnson, a school grounds keeper dying of cancer from his exposure to the weed killer, Roundup.
  • In March of this year, another jury handed out a verdict for $80 Million to Edwin Hardeman after Monsanto failed to warn him about the cancer risks from Roundup.
  • A trial going on right now in California alleges that RoundUp caused non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in a man who used the weed killer “from the mid -1970’s until only a few years ago.”  The case is filed by a husband and wife who owned and managed several properties.

Reports indicate there are currently more than 8,000 lawsuits filed against Monsanto involving cancers caused by RoundUp.

 

Who is at Risk of Getting Lymphoma or Other Related Cancers From Roundup?

Agricultural and custodial workers are the most at risk of cancer due to glyphosate exposure. Although, anyone who has had extensive exposure to glyphosate-based herbicides like Roundup and many other Monsanto and Bayer products may also be at risk. This includes:
  • Landscapers
  • Flower Shop owners
  • Golf Course Grounds Crews
  • Custodians
  • Lawn Care Workers
  • Farmers
  • Agricultural Workers
  • Gardeners
If you experienced consistent exposure to products with glyphosate as the active ingredient over an extended period of time, and then receive a diagnosis of lymphoma, leukemia, or another type of cancer, you may be able to file a lawsuit.

Types of Cancer Linked to Glyphosates Found in Weed Killers Like Roundup

According to a 2012 study by the World Health Organization (WHO), the chemical glyphosate, found in Roundup, is specifically linked to lymphomas, leukemias, and other cancers.  The study conducted an in-depth review of Roundup and the active ingredient, glyphosate. The WHO assessment determined that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic to humans.”
 
WHO published a Q&A on their findings about the chemical weed killer, glyphosate.  It explicitly states that glyphosate was the only ingredient in roundup that causes cancer. No other ingredient or combination of ingredients in the herbicide were found to cause cancer.

What is Roundup?

Roundup, a chemical herbicide created by Monsanto (recently acquired by Bayer), is a chemical widely used to kill weeds.  The multinational corporation Monsanto discovered and developed glyphosate, which is the active ingredient used in Roundup.  Monsanto claims they tested the chemical extensively and results showed no evidence that glyphosate or any other health issues.

Other Types of Glyphosate Based Herbicides:

  • Accord
  • Honcho
  • Pondmaster
  • Protocol
  • Rascal
  • Roundup Pro
  • Roundup Ultra
