289 Million Lymphoma Roundup Lawsuit Settled

Glyphosate, the core ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed products, is a human carcinogen causing Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and other types of lymphoma including multiple myeloma and other diseases. Studies show that prolonged exposure and use of glyphosate-based products, such as Roundup produced by Monsanto, may cause lymphoma cancer types. If you were diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma or other lymphoma types and have been using Roundup weed and grass products at your work or for personal use, our lawyers will help recover the maximum amount of compensation for you and your family.

Glyphosate in Roundup Weed & Grass Products, Causing Lymphoma Cancer Types

How you get infected with Lymphoma

Glyphosate is a synthetic herbicide and crop desiccant, introduced by Monsanto in 1974. It became the key ingredient in arguably the best-known weed and grass products in the entire world, Roundup line of products is available on every shelf in stores.

Monsanto, a biotech company that developed Roundup products, acted with malice and oppression because they knew what they were doing was wrong and doing it with reckless disregard for human life. The World Health Organization’s Institute Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified glyphosate as a carcinogenic chemical.

Monsanto owns many products which contain glyphosate, so here is a list so you know which ones to avoid:

  • Roundup Ready-To-Use Weed & Grass Killer III – This is their basic herbicide. Most people use this product when taking care of their lawns. It can come in different variations, some with a built-in wand, other without it. Even if the packaging might be different, its use remains the same, namely spraying it over the weeds.
  • Roundup Precision Gel - This product is a stick that releases gel. People touch the leaves of the weeds they want to kill with the gel and then they just wait for it to take effect. This product still uses glyphosate, and because it is in gel form, without proper handling, it can be extremely easy for a person to unintentionally ingest it.
  • Roundup Ready-To-Use Extended Control Weed & Grass Killer Plus Weed Preventer II – This product is the same as the first one. Besides killing weeds, it is also preventing others to grow, so it is a product people used when thinking about long-term effects.
  • Roundup Weed & Grass Killer Concentrate – This product is a liquid that must be sprayed over undesirable plants. With this said, there is twice the amount of glyphosate in it compared with the standard version (this one has 18%, the standard one has 2%). There are other products with the “Concentrate” label, such as Roundup Concentrate Extended Control Weed & Grass Killer Plus Weed Preventer, Roundup Concentrate Poison Ivy Plus Tough Bush Killer or Roundup Weed & Grass Killer Super Concentrate, with the last one having 50% glyphosate. Because of its high quantities of glyphosate, this product is even more dangerous, and it poses a greater risk of developing cancer if used frequently.

Roundup (for garden, lawn or driveway weeds) has been used in public and private gardens, parks, crops, lawns and many other places, virtually everywhere.

Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Cancer Caused by Roundup Products Case Study

Dewayne Johnson worked as a groundskeeper for a school near San Francisco. As part of his job, he applied Roundup products to kill weeds several times each year. He has declared that after an incident where the hose from the tank holding the herbicide broke, he was drenched in the herbicide. He said that he developed a rash after, but when he called the company they didn’t warn him about the possibility that Roundup products contain chemicals such as glyphosate that cause cancer. Another common occurrence was that when spraying the glyphosate-based herbicide on windy days, it would often fly back and constantly splash him on the face.

In a few years, he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, an aggressive type of cancer, with over 80% of his body being covered in lesions. After hearing his story, the jurors awarded him $250 million in punitive damages plus $39 million in compensatory damages.
