    Is Roundup Causing Cancer?

    Much of the debate regarding the cancer-causing properties of Roundup, which is a widely used herbicide for killing weeds and grass centers on its manufacturer, Monsanto (which recently merged with the chemical company Bayer). Specifically, when it learned of the potential health risks of glyphosate and if the company intentionally hid this information from the public.

    Several studies of glyphosate and cancer are ongoing and while further research is necessary to confirm its possible links to non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other forms of cancer, a 2015 report by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified glyphosate — Roundup’s active ingredient as a probable human carcinogen, alongside DDT and the insecticide malathion. 

    During the recent litigation, millions of pages of Monsanto corporate e-mails, memos, and scientific studies were admitted into evidence. Upon review, the attorneys for the plaintiff argued that while the cancer link was becoming apparent, Monsanto was allegedly working to influence the scientific data to avoid an official classification of glyphosate as a carcinogen.

    • According to the American Cancer Society non-Hodgkin lymphoma is a common cancer that will likely kill nearly 20,000 people in the United States this year.
    • Since it was released in 1974, Americans have sprayed more than 1.8 million tons of Roundup and its main ingredient, glyphosate; worldwide, the figure stands at 9.4 million tons.
    • A recent report by the Environmental Working Group has also indicated that glyphosate is so common, trace amounts have been found in everyday foods, from cereal to granola bars.

    If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma or another form of cancer and believe that exposure to Roundup, Ranger Pro or another product containing glyphosate was the cause, please complete our online form and speak with KNR about how we can help.



    Frequently Asked Questions

    Who is responsible for warning people about Roundup?
    When a manufacturer or seller knows that a product may be dangerous, they have an obligation to include a warning, such as a label on an electric appliance that warns not to use it in water or warnings on cigarettes that advise people of the health risks . When no warning is provided, that may be considered a warning defect. Pinpointing the cause of an injury and the nature of a defect can be complicated. For that reason, it’s always best to consult an experienced personal injury lawyer.
