Monsanto Roundup Cancer Lawsuits
Week Killer Roundup and Glyphosate Cancer Lawsuits
Did you get cancer form using RoundUp or other weed killing products containing glyphosate? MCTLaw is actively investigating these claims to file lawsuits on behalf of cancer victims. Recent jury verdicts found Monsanto guilty of not wanting customers about the risks of using RoundUp. These plaintiffs received diagnosis 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 John son, 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 herviceds like RoundUp and many other Monsanto and Bayer products may also be at risk. This includes:
- Flower Shop Owners
- Golf Course Grounds Crews
- Lawn Care Workers
- Agricultural Workers

Cancers Linked to Glyphosate 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 was found to cause cancer.
