Glyphosate, the active chemical ingredient in the popular weed killer Roundup, has been determined by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a division of the World Health Organization, to be “probably carcinogenic” to humans and exposure to it has been linked to non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) as well as many of its various subtypes.
Monsanto, the maker of Roundup, is currently the world’s leading producer of glyphosate. Farmers, landscapers, gardeners, and other agricultural laborers have filed lawsuits against Monsanto alleging that they have suffered from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after being exposed to glyphosate in Roundup.
Lawsuits filed against Monsanto allege that Monsanto has known that exposure to glyphosate presents human health risks, including a risk of developing cancer, Monsanto Roundup labels fail to warn consumers about the risk of cancer, and Monsanto misrepresented Roundup’s health and environmental safety risks.
Individuals who have been exposed to Monsanto’s Roundup Weed Killer and have developed lymphatic cancer, like non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma are filing lawsuits in both federal and state courts nationwide. These individuals may be eligible to receive financial compensation from Monsanto. Financial compensation may help harmed patients with medical bills and lost wages, as well as compensation for the pain and suffering they’ve endured. Additionally, punitive damages may be rewarded. The purpose of punitive damages is to discourage similar behavior on the part of manufacturers.
