Roundup Linked Cancer – Risk Factors
Roundup contains a chemical called glyphosate. Studies have found that exposure to glyphosate is associated with an increased risk of cancer diagnoses. Lawsuits claim that Monsanto, Roundup's manufacturer, has known about the link between Roundup weed killer and cancer for more than 30 years. The lawsuits allege that the company decided not to warn the public about Roundup's risks and marketed the product as safe.
Roundup class action lawsuits have already been filed, and the first claim to go to trial involved a school groundskeeper diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The court determined that glyphosate played a crucial part in his illness and awarded him a $289 million verdict.
Recently, a California jury awarded $2 billion to a couple after ruling that they developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma due to using Roundup.
Types of Cancers Linked to Roundup Weed Killer
There isn't merely one link between glyphosate and any singular cancer—there could be many. Below are some of the more common cancers that have been linked to Roundup:

What is Glyphosate?
Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, is a chemical compound that is often used to kill weeds while promoting plant growth and ripening.
Roundup is the most-used herbicide in American agriculture and gardening, with close to 200 million pounds used around the world each year.

In addition to cancer, exposure to glyphosate can cause a number of side effects and symptoms. These include:

Wrongful Death Lawsuit
A wrongful death lawsuit is a lawsuit that is filed on behalf of someone who died, usually by a close relative. For example, in 2015, farmer Jack McCall died due to complications from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. His widow filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Roundup's manufacturer on his behalf, claiming that Roundup exposure led to her husband's cancer.
