You have probably seen a lot of coverage regarding a Roundup lawsuit. Research has shown that exposure to Monsanto’s popular weed killer product, Roundup, may be linked to non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, other cancers and kidney disease.

The connection between Roundup and cancer is promoted widely, but the glyphosate-based herbicide has even been linked to a two-time increased risk of birth defects in babies born to mothers living near fields sprayed with Roundup.

Adverse side effects of Monsanto’s Roundup include:

  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Leukemia
  • Brain cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Testicular cancer
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Lymphoma
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Nerve damage
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Diabetes
  • Infertility
  • 2x increase in birth defects

Roundup Lawsuits

On March 26th, 2019 a jury linked Roundup and cancer when they awarded more than $80 million in damages to a California man who blamed the weed killer for his cancer, in a case that his personal injury law firm says could help determine the fate of hundreds of similar lawsuits. Edwin Hardeman proved that Roundup’s design was defective, it lacked sufficient cancer warnings and its manufacturer, agribusiness giant Monsanto, was negligent, the six-person jury in San Francisco found. It awarded Hardeman more than $5 million in compensation and an additional $75 million in punitive damages. 

A different jury in August awarded another man $289 million, but a judge later slashed it to $78 million.
