Products Liability Litigation for Cancer and Lymphoma After Exposure to Roundup Weed Killer
Roundup, the world’s most widely-used weed killer, has been found to cause cancer in persons who have been exposed to the substance. Specifically, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer determined in 2015 that Roundup and other glyphosate herbicides are a “probable human carcinogen” based on studies conducted around the globe. New Roundup cancer warnings have been issued worldwide, banning the sale and use of Roundup in many countries. For decades, Roundup has been marketed as safe; now plaintiffs suffering from Roundup cancer and lymphoma are suing Monsanto for damages.
Roundup cancer lawsuits allege that Monsanto has engaged in concealing Roundup cancer risks. The company has a huge interest in protecting Roundup’s reputation: In 2015, Roundup brought in close to $4.76 billion, approximately one-third of the company’s global sales. Monsanto’s Roundup Ready crops, which are used in tandem with the herbicide, are even more profitable – seeds and genomic products brought Monsanto over $10 billion in annual sales in 2015. These products rely heavily on the continued viability of Roundup, and public awareness of the Roundup lymphoma risk would hurt global sales.
Monsanto plays an important role in the economy of St. Louis, our firm’s base. Well-liked for its many contributions to our community, Monsanto’s violation of consumer trust comes as a surprise to many. However, unless faced with significant litigation, Monsanto is likely to continue marketing these harmful products as safe. Roundup cancer lawsuits serve the dual purpose of recovering medical damages for families harmed by the product, and holding Monsanto accountable for choosing profits over human life. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with lymphoma or another form of cancer after Roundup exposure, you may have grounds to file a Roundup cancer lawsuit.

Roundup Cancer Risks
In 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) confirmed what some researchers have suggested for decades – that Roundup lymphoma risks are real. Anyone exposed to Roundup, including gardeners, landscapers, farmers, or people who live in places where Roundup is used, may be at risk of developing Roundup lymphoma.

Roundup Cancer Warnings
Responding to WHO’s determination that Roundup causes cancer, nations across the globe have issued their own Roundup cancer warnings and bans. Persons who are exposed to Roundup for as little as eight hours are at risk for lymphoma and other forms of cancer, according to Roundup cancer warnings. The popular herbicide is still widely in use by home gardeners, commercial landscape companies, and farmers around the nation. Read full Roundup cancer warning information.
Persons and family members of persons who have developed lymphoma or cancer following Roundup exposure may have legal grounds to file a Roundup lawsuit against Monsanto. Roundup lawsuits allege Monsanto has engaged in concealing Roundup cancer risk information from the public by funding fraudulent research which obtained false results. Monsanto has also been accused of false marketing, claiming its herbicide was safe for general use. Roundup cancer lawsuits can win compensation for medical expenses and damages, and will hold Monsanto accountable for the suffering created by Roundup lymphoma.
