Roundup can cause cancer in humans, including non-Hodgkin lymphoma and leukemia. The weed killer has been linked to serious and potentially deadly health conditions. The CQH Firm is investigating lawsuits on behalf of people who have developed cancer after exposure to Roundup.
Monsanto’s Roundup (glyphosate) weed killer was recently designated by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as a probable human carcinogen. Those who use or are exposed to Roundup or glyphosate containing products are at risk for developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).

Roundup Weed-Killer Danger
Roundup [glyphosate] is a non-selective herbicide manufactured by agricultural giant Monsanto. It is used to kill weeds that compete with agricultural crops. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, works by inhibiting a specific enzyme required for plant growth. It is used by farmers, home gardeners and agricultural workers throughout the United States as an all-purpose weed killer.
Monsanto has consistently denied claims that Roundup causes cancer. However, recent studies by researchers and the World Health Organization (WHO) have shown that Roundup can cause cancer, in particular non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, as well as other serious health problems. In fact, research has shown that Monsanto has known for decades that Roundup can cause cancer but have ignored the risks as sales of Roundup continue to skyrocket.
Outraged by Monsanto’s deception, weekend gardeners, farmers, agricultural workers and their families are making the decision to file a Roundup lawsuit alleging that Roundup causes cancer.
Does Roundup Cause non-Hodgkin Lymphoma?
Over the last 30 years, there have been numerous glyphosate studies conducted by independent researchers showing a link between glyphosate and various forms of cancer and other serious health risks. Most recently, in March 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), an agency within the World Health Organization (WHO), conducted an exhaustive analysis on the toxicity of glyphosate.
The IARC convened a panel of 17 international scientists from 11 countries to conduct a systematic review of all publicly available information about glyphosate. The panel reviewed over 15 studies to assess the association between Roundup exposure and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The study resulted in the publication of an IARC Monograph—the authoritative standard for cancer hazard assessment around the world.
The IARC typically categorizes agents into four categories: Group 1 (known human carcinogens), Group 2A (probable human carcinogens), Group 2B (possible human carcinogens), and Group 3 (not classified). After its comprehensive glyphosate study, the IARC concluded, among other things, that glyphosate is probably a human carcinogen (Group 2A).
As a result of the IARC’s designation of glyphosate as a probable carcinogen, and the mounting scientific evidence, numerous countries have restricted or banned the use of glyphosate, including Roundup. Those countries include California, Belgium, Bermuda, Colombia, El Salvador, France, Netherlands, Portugal, and Sri Lanka.
