The manufacturers of Roundup herbicide, Monsanto, has already lost a few lawsuits of this nature. As things stand now, the chances are they are going to deal with several other cases of similar nature across the USA. A petitioners’ argument lies in Monsanto’s negligence of not informing them that the use of their product puts them at a higher risk of getting cancer. The lawsuits came about after research that showed the drug’s primary component; glyphosate was a potential carcinogen.

The Evidence We Have Concerning Roundup Herbicide Lawsuits
Allegedly, Monsanto, for more than 30 years, knew the link between Roundup and cancer. However, even though the company knows this, they still choose not to warn the public. In fact, the company went as far as saying that the product was as safe as a grain of table salt. Furthermore, the company said the product is non-toxic to people and pets, as long as it is used correctly.
Nevertheless, the documents presented in court should support or ague that Monsanto took measures to hide the truth from the public; and how they continued to stick to their story and convincing government agencies, farmers, and everyone how their product is safe. Monsanto criticized any research that mentioned their product as a potential danger, and they even went too far as to spreading misinformation rather. The research document also showed that Monsanto, which is owned by Bayer colluded with the EPA, to hide the connection.
What Are The Injuries And Side Effects caused By Roundup?
Cancer is the most severe form of the side effect from the exposure of Roundup, with non-Hodgkin leukemia and leukemia being the most common types of cancer. In fact, research shows that about 70,000 people across the States are diagnosed with non-Hodgkin leukemia, with over 90 percent of the cases involving B-Cell lymphoma. The remaining 10 percent of the cases involve the T-cell lymphoma.
The signs and symptoms include:
- Loss of appetite
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Stomach and chest pains
- Night sweats
Do not waste time or hesitate to see a doctor if you have been using Roundup frequently, especially if you experience the symptoms mentioned.
Garden centers, nursery, farmworkers, landscapers, and handymen are the people at risk the most. The reason being that they are more likely to inhale the herbicide when cleaning, spraying, or mixing the solution. The product can also affect those who eat or drink contaminated foods and water.

According to Bren Wisner, who was one of the couple’s lawyers said the verdict was a sign that Monsanto needed to change the way they operate.
Bayer tried to appeal the case using a WHO report, which differed from other research done on the product. They further compared a 2015 report from Who International Agency for Research by turning to the U.S. Environment Protection Agency statement that tried to prove that glyphosate was not carcinogenic.
The second-largest settlement went to a school’s groundkeeper, who received 289 million. The lawyer of the accuser proved that his cancer was a result of both Ranger Pro (another product from Monsanto) and Roundup.
