Roundup is a popular herbicide that has been used to kill weeds and grass on millions of acres for decades. It continues to be the most widely used herbicide in the world, with more than $6 billion in annual global revenue. Every year over 250 million pounds of it is sprayed on lawns, gardens, parks, playgrounds, and other areas where it is needed.
Users of the Weed Killer Roundup May Get Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
The weed killer Roundup may cause cancer even though it has been used for decades by landscapers, agricultural workers, and homeowners. It seems to do a remarkable job of killing weeds and other plants. Unfortunately, exposure to Roundup has also significantly exposed users to the active ingredient glyphosate, a cancer-causing chemical and a major ingredient of the product.
Overview of Roundup Lawsuits
Thousands of Roundup users have filed lawsuits against Monsanto, which was the original manufacturer of Roundup until it was purchased in 2018 by the “big pharma” company Bayer AG. The lawsuits allege that the manufacturer knew that glyphosate was a carcinogen but continued using it as an ingredient in Roundup Weed Killer without warning the public about the risk of developing cancer due to glyphosate exposure when using Roundup. As a result, the plaintiffs allege they developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a sometimes fatal cancer.
Some of the cases have gone to trial where juries have awarded billions of dollars in damages to the plaintiffs. For example, a husband and wife, both of whom developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after using Roundup for more than 30 years, received $2 billion. Another cancer victim received $80 million.
Since the massive jury awards, approximately 80 percent of Roundup cases have been settled out of court.
Each case is different, and the amount of the damages is determined by the specific facts of the individual plaintiff. Roundup has not always lost in court. In two cases, the jury determined that the Roundup exposure did not cause the plaintiff’s cancer.
Bayer AG has established a fund to pay claims of those who prove their cancer was caused by their use of Roundup, but there is a time limit on when you must file your claim. Do not let that time run out.
