Roundup Weed Killer Linked to Cancer
Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup weed killer, is the most popular and most commonly used herbicide in the world. Recent data from The International Agency for Research on Cancer has linked exposure to glyphosate with certain types of cancer, including non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, while classifying glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans.”
Who is at risk?
No matter where you live, whether it is in a suburb, city, farm, or rural area, you are at risk and may have been exposed to Roundup and the deadly chemical glyphosate.
Jury Awards $289 Million to Victim in Roundup Cancer Trial
In August 2018, a former San Francisco school groundskeeper who was diagnosed with terminal cancer after routinely using Roundup on the job received a landmark $289 million jury award. When asked about the award, jurors cited the need to punish Monsanto, Roundup’s manufacturer, as their justification for a large portion of the award. This was the first Roundup cancer case to go to trial, and thousands of other claims and lawsuits are still pending in state and federal courts across the country.
The attorneys at Dudley DeBosier are now investigating Roundup cancer claims against Monsanto on behalf of injury victims and their families across the country.

Exposure to Glyphosate and Roundup
Roundup is so commonly used on farms and in homes around the world that just about anyone can be exposed to it. Anyone who has been exposed to Roundup may be at risk of developing Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. Even with the warnings now out there, Roundup is still being used by thousands of farmers, crop dusters, and other professionals in the agriculture and landscaping businesses.
Exposure to Roundup and glyphosate can include:
- Breathing the air near a recently treated area
- Touching treated plants or weeds before the chemical dries
- Drinking from a contaminated water supply
- Eating food that was grown in soil treated with the chemical
