The world’s most popular weed killer, Roundup, has been linked to several cases of aggressive, deadly blood cancer. As a result, thousands of individuals have filed lawsuits against Monsanto, the creator of Roundup, for creating and selling such a dangerous product.
Although most of the individuals filing lawsuits are gardeners, farmers, and landscapers, some recreational Roundup users are also filing claims, stating they developed cancer after using the weed killer in their home gardens. Although Monsanto maintains that their product is safe to use, several studies have linked the weed killer’s main ingredient to the development of certain blood cancers.

About Roundup Weed Killer
Roundup weed killer was first developed in the 1970s, and has since taken over as the most used weed killer worldwide. This weed killer is used in home gardens, parks, professional landscapes, food crops, and more. However, when individuals who come in frequent contact with the product began developing blood cancers, people began to question the safety of the popular herbicide.
Several studies have since analyzed the properties of glyphosate, the main ingredient, but reports came back reporting potential foul play and skewed lab reports. However, in 2015, an agency of the World Health Organization came back with the final results, declaring glyphosate a probable carcinogen, (that is, a cancer-causing material).
The Monsanto Lawsuits
If you developed a blood cancer after using Roundup, you may have a lawsuit. Most individuals who have valid lawsuits came in contact with Roundup on a regular basis, either due to their occupation or frequent use at home either mixing the product, applying it, or walking through brush and plants where the product had recently been sprayed.
Individuals who might be eligible to file a Roundup lawsuit include:
- Agricultural workers
The most common cancer linked to Roundup use is non-Hodgkin lymphoma, though other cancers, including follicular lymphoma, cutaneous T-cell, anaplastic T-cell, multiple myeloma, Lymphocytic lymphoma, and large diffuse B-cell.
