Does Roundup Cause Cancer?

“Roundup” is a brand name for the herbicide chemical glyphosate. The chemical was originally researched and created by Monsanto in the early 1970s. Reportedly, agricultural operations across the globe use more than 1.4 billion pounds of the herbicide every year. The widespread use of Roundup and glyphosate products has caused one researcher to declare the chemical, “the most successful herbicide in history.”

In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared that glyphosate is, “probably carcinogenic to humans,” meaning that it likely causes cancer. Since that time, several personal injury cases have successfully demonstrated the connection between glyphosate and plaintiffs’ cancer, including one case where a couple was initially awarded $2 billion in total damages.

A study by the University of Washington published in February 2019 confirmed that Roundup, “increases the risk of some cancers by more than 40%.”

Cancers associated with exposure to Roundup and glyphosate products include:

  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  • Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma
  • B or T-Cell Lymphoma
  • Mantle Cell Lymphoma
  • Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
  • Other Cancers

Damages Available from a Possible Roundup Cancer Lawsuit

The case of every defective product is different, and that includes cases related to the subject of Roundup and cancer. Because of these variables, there is no way to predict the final amount of damages that may be awarded, if any.

You and your defective products attorney will evaluate the details of your case together and assess the full extent of your losses related to Roundup cancer. Possible damages that can be provided through a settlement or Roundup class action lawsuit payout include:

  • Medical treatment costs, past, and future
  • Associated out-of-pocket expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earnings potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • In some cases, punitive damages

Surviving family members of those who lost their life to Roundup cancer may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim, which can provide compensation for:

  • The deceased’s medical costs
  • Loss of income and benefits
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of companionship (consortium)
  • The family’s pain and suffering

Proving Negligence in a Monsanto Roundup Lawsuit

To be eligible to claim compensation, those injured by Monsanto’s products must be prepared to show that the company was negligent and how that negligence directly led to their injury.

A common defense in negligence cases is that the company could claim that the health risks were not “foreseeable,” and that there were no “reasonable” actions they could have taken to discover the risks, adequately warn the public, or reduce the risk of harm overall.

To debunk these defenses, a defective products attorney must be prepared to demonstrate that the risks were “foreseeable” had the company engaged in the proper level of due diligence in research. One of the best ways to prove this is to demonstrate that the company actually had knowledge of the risks yet failed to disclose them to the public or to adequately warn product users.

During a recent Roundup cancer lawsuit, the plaintiff discovered email correspondence between Monsanto and the American Council on Science and Health (ACSH) revealing that Monsanto was aware of the perceived risk that Roundup could cause cancer. The emails detail efforts to obscure or discredit evidence of the product’s harm.

Evidence like this provides proof that the company was fully aware of dangers or at very least the potential for danger. Rather than committing resources to make the product safer or keep it from exposing users to cancer risk, the company engaged in efforts to improve its public image.

Whether you join a Roundup class action lawsuit or decide to take individual action, evidence of the defendant’s negligence and awareness of product risks is crucial to obtaining a favorable ruling or reasonable settlement offer.

What to Do if You Have Been Exposed to Roundup and May Have Cancer

If you have used Roundup or similar glyphosate herbicide (weed-killer) products in your job or as part of a gardening hobby, you may have developed one or several rare forms of cancer as a result.

If you already have a diagnosis for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia, or similar cancer, then there is a possibility that your cancer is linked to exposure to cancer-causing agents in glyphosate.

If you have not received a cancer diagnosis, pay close attention to possible symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other forms of lymphoma, leukemia, or related cancers. 

Symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma include:

  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Fatigue (extreme tiredness)
  • Weight loss
  • Shortness of breath or cough
  • Swollen abdomen (belly)
  • Feeling full after only a small amount of food
  • Chest pain or pressure
  • Chills
  • Severe or frequent infections
  • Easy bruising or bleeding

It is critical for claimants to receive a comprehensive diagnosis as they begin to assemble evidence of your claim. An experienced personal injury attorney can refer you to specialists who can fully evaluate your condition and run all tests necessary to confirm a specific diagnosis.

Once you have been diagnosed, you can calculate the full extent of your losses resulting from your condition. Your attorney can provide assistance, including the calculation of all of your lost income and potential future income losses.

Your losses will be documented in a claim filed against Bayer, the current parent company of Roundup, or other appropriate parties. The defendant may offer a reasonable settlement in some instances. In other instances, the claimant may need to file a lawsuit in order to force the defendant to provide the needed compensation.

During this process, your Roundup cancer lawyer will work closely with you to guide your decisions, provide representation during important interactions, and employ strategies that increase the chances that you will receive the maximum compensation legally available.
