Roundup®, the most widely used weed-killer in the world, has been declared a “probable human carcinogen” by the cancer-research agency of the World Health Organization. Studies have linked Roundup® to non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other cancers.


In October 2016, federal judges centralized dozens of Roundup® lawsuits into one Multidistrict lawsuit in the Northern District of California.

About the case

Monsanto, the manufacturer of Roundup®, is accused of failing to warn about the risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other cancer associated with exposure to Roundup®.

A study in 2008 by a Swedish research group resolved that exposure to glyphosate, an active ingredient in Roundup®, greatly increased the risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other cancers.

Common symptoms of non-Hodgkin lymphoma include swollen lymph nodes, fever, chest pain, coughing, trouble breathing, pain in the abdomen, weight loss, and night sweats.

If you or a loved one were exposed to Roundup® and have since been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma or other cancer, you may be entitled to compensation. Click here for a free review of your case.
