What You Need to Know About the Roundup Cancer Lawsuit
Did you know that Monsanto/Bayer’s Roundup weed killer is one of the most widely used herbicides in the world? More than 250 million pounds are sprayed each year by this weed killer used by farmers, landscaping workers, home gardeners and more.
While the product is effective in eliminating pesky weeds, it contains glyphosate, which the World Health Organization declared as a “probable human carcinogen” back in 2015. Glyphosate is linked to non-Hodgkin lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, mantle cell lymphoma, T-Cell lymphoma among others.
Thousands of lawsuits have been filed against Bayer since claiming that Monsanto/Bayer failed to warn users of the possible risks of glyphosate exposure. Here’s what you need to know about the RoundUp cancer lawsuit:
Approximately 80% of filed Roundup lawsuits have been settled
As of December 2021, Monsanto/Bayer has reached settlement agreements in nearly 100,000 Roundup lawsuits paying out approximately $11 billion to plaintiffs. The average settlement payout ranges from $125,000 to $175,000.
But, you can still file a Roundup cancer lawsuit
Glyphosate-induced non-Hodgkin’s cancer does not develop overnight, so you can develop cancer from exposure to Roundup more than ten years later. Consequently, Roundup lawsuits can and will continue to be filed. As of December 2021, there are nearly 4,000 pending lawsuits in the MDL in California and an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 Roundup lawsuits remain throughout the country. Plus, Roundup is still on the market…
