About the Roundup Cancer Lawsuit
Monsanto’s Roundup Weed Killer is one of the most popular herbicides in the world, but of its countless daily users, many are now realizing the devastating effects of this carcinogenic chemical. About 11,200 lawsuits have been filed throughout the nation on behalf of agricultural laborers and everyday gardeners that used Roundup and were later diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL).
Studies show a link between Roundup’s main chemical, glyphosate, and an increased risk of cancer—especially among those who came into direct contact with the product. It is alleged that Monsanto was aware of the carcinogenic effects of their product but did not take the necessary steps to protect users. The ugly truth is that they continued to make billions of dollars from the product at the expense of the innocent public. At Ramos Law, we put people first. Always.
We hold mega-corporations, like Monsanto, to the same standards of care that chemical companies should have when they sell a potentially dangerous product to millions of consumers. If you are one of these consumers who used Roundup and were subsequently diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma, leukemia, or another blood cancer, contact our legal team for a free consultation.
Roundup Weed Killer and Glyphosate Linked to Cancer
Roundup Weed Killer is meant to kill weeds with minimal damage to the plants and the surrounding environment. Monsanto claims its non-selective weed killer is one of the safest herbicides on the market, but new research suggests otherwise. The main ingredient of Roundup is glyphosate, which the International Agency for Research on Cancer found to be “probably carcinogenic to humans” in 2015.
Furthermore, a meta-analysis performed by Science Direct found that exposure to glyphosate increases an individual’s risk of cancer by 41%. Researchers found “a compelling link” between exposure to glyphosate-based herbicides and risk for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The most common type of cancer linked to Roundup is non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which starts in the white blood cells, also known as lymphocytes, of your immune system. When afflicted, your body begins producing too many abnormal white blood cells.
Symptoms can include enlarged lymph nodes, fever, bloated belly, abdominal pain, trouble breathing, unexplained weight loss, and fatigue. If you’ve experienced any of these symptoms after exposure to Roundup, visit your doctor immediately.
Moreover, glyphosate has not only been linked to NHL but many other types of cancers as well. Here are just a few…
- Anaplastic Large T-Cell Lymphoma
- Follicular B-Cell Lymphoma
- Mediastinal B-Cell Lymphoma
- Large B-Cell NHL
- Mantle Cell Lymphoma
- High Grade Mature B-Cell Lymphoma

Millions of people worldwide use Roundup every day, blind to its health risks. Everyone from agricultural workers to average individuals working on their home garden or lawn can be exposed to glyphosate.
Generally, anyone who sprayed Roundup to kill weeds around a property could be at risk, but those who used the product routinely and over longer periods of time are at most risk. The occupations that require frequent use of herbicides include….

The most prominent lawsuits against the maker of Roundup Weed Killer were both filed in California by two separate individuals that were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after using Roundup for years. As a result, one person was initially awarded $289 million and the other was awarded $80 million.
These lawsuits—and many others—allege that Monsanto…

- Marketed Roundup as safe in full awareness of the product’s health and environmental risks.
