California Federal Jury Rules Roundup® Caused Cancer
Roundup® is a popular weed killer found in many homes and businesses. It contains an herbicide chemical called glyphosate, which may be linked to cancer per studies conducted by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
In March 2019, a California federal jury ruled that Roundup is a significant factor in a man’s diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. And in August 2018, a San Francisco jury awarded a former school groundskeeper $289 million after it ruled that he developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma due to using Roundup as part of his job duties.
People in all areas of the U.S., including cities, rural areas, suburbs, and farms, are susceptible to Roundup exposure. Common types of exposure include:
- Breathing airborne particles
- Touching treated plants and weeds
- Drinking contaminated water
- Eating contaminated food
Thousands of additional claims against Roundup’s manufacturer Monsanto and its parent company Bayer are currently pending.
