What is Roundup Weed Killer?
Roundup is a very common brand of herbicide – also know as a weed killer – which has been widely sold across the United States. It was originally produced by agricultural company Monsanto, before being sold to German company Bayer in 2018.
The product comes in liquid form, and is usually sprayed onto unwanted plants and foliage. The primary active ingredient in Roundup is a substance called glyphosate. Roundup works by soaking into plants and preventing them from getting the nutrients they need. This kills the plant and makes it easy to remove.
Roundup Weed Killer Cancer Risk
A scientific study has revealed that exposure to glyphosate can massively increase a person’s cancer risk. The research – carried out by Science Direct and published in 2019 – found a strong link between the herbicide and non-Hodgkin lymphoma in human beings.
Results indicated that the risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma – a form of potentially terminal cancer – is increased by 41% when a person has had heavy exposure to the glyphosate chemical.
With glyphosate used as the active herbicide chemical in Roundup, this research has established a strong link between Roundup and cancer.
Manufacturers have long claimed Roundup to be a safe product. With recent discoveries linking Roundup to cancer, the Roundup weed killer cancer lawyers of Bisnar Chase are focused on holding those manufacturers accountable and securing justice for victims.
Our personal injury law firm is already working on a number of lawsuits against Monsanto. We are dedicated to working with clients who have been exposed to glyphosate and are suffering as a result.
Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma – What You Need to Know
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) is a type of cancer which originates in the lymphatic system of the body. There are several different forms of NHL, which originate with tumors forming within the white blood cells. These tumors target the body’s immune system.
Symptoms of non-Hodgkins lymphoma include:

Anyone suffering these symptoms should visit a medical professional as soon as possible, before speaking to a Roundup weed killer cancer lawyer at Bisnar Chase.

Roundup Weed Killer Lawsuits and Settlements
Several major lawsuits have already been filed against Monsanto and Bayer – the companies responsible for the Roundup product.
- In 2018 a San Francisco jury awarded a school groundskeeper $289 million (later reduced to $78 million) after he claimed that Roundup exposure was responsible for his non-Hodgkin lymphoma cancer. It was decided the Monsanto had failed to warn him of the dangers carried by Roundup.
- Another case in 2019 saw a cancer victim awarded more than $80 million after a California court ruled against Monsanto.
Monsanto and Bayer are appealing these verdicts, but there are thousands of other lawsuits filed against them which have not yet been heard.

Roundup Class Actions Against Monsanto and Bayer
There are two types of lawsuits being filed against Roundup manufacturers – individual and class action. The individual claims are typically made by those who have suffered personal injury by developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Roundup class action lawsuits are being filed by large groups or classes of people who have purchased and used the product without necessarily suffering ill effects. The complaint made by the Roundup class action lawsuits is that the manufacturers misrepresented the product by failing to inform users of its dangers.
