If you were exposed to Roundup weed killer and have now been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or another serious illness, you may be entitled to significant compensation. Those who worked in agriculture, gardening, landscaping, and similar industries where Roundup is used are now reporting devastating diagnoses of cancer and other illnesses.
Roundup exposure isn’t limited to former agricultural workers, though. For example, exposure can also occur through eating food or by living close to commercial farms.
The manufacturer of Roundup has a duty to provide safe products that don’t endanger the health of consumers. Injured individuals have a right to demand financial compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages related to illnesses caused by exposure to this dangerous product.

What Is Roundup?
Roundup is the brand name of one of the most widely used herbicide products in the United States. It was originally produced by Monsanto, which was acquired by the pharmaceutical company Bayer in 2018.
The primary ingredient in Roundup weed killer is glyphosate. Its use is widespread: It’s found in public lawns and greenspaces, commercial farms, schools, and homeowners’ lawns or gardens.
Roundup Exposure Side Effects
Glyphosate, which is the key ingredient in Roundup, has been shown to cause troubling side effects in humans who are exposed to it. The International Agency for Research on Cancer, which is part of the World Health Organization, has officially declared glyphosate to be a probable human carcinogen. This means that it’s capable of causing cancer in humans.
Reported side effects of Roundup exposure include:
- Eye irritation
- Burning eyes and blurred vision
- Burning skin and rashes
- Asthma and respiratory problems
- Nose bleeds
What Types of Cancers Are Linked to Roundup Weed Killer?
Research into the long-term effects of Roundup is still ongoing by different groups and agencies. However, some of the reported conditions and cancers linked to Roundup include:
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- Multiple myeloma
- Brain cancer
- Irritable bowel syndrome and digestive problems
- Celiac disease
- Liver disease
- Kidney disease
- Heart disease
If you were exposed to Roundup weed killer and have been diagnosed with a serious health condition, you need to learn about your legal right to compensation. Our experienced product liability lawyer can help you understand your rights and fight to hold the manufacturer accountable for the harm you’ve suffered.
How Could You Have Been Exposed to Roundup?
Adverse side effects have been reported by former agricultural workers and gardeners who were frequently exposed to Roundup. Exposure for these individuals can occur if glyphosate is accidentally inhaled while using the product. It can also occur through skin absorption if the product comes into contact with the skin.
However, it’s important to realize that Roundup exposure isn’t just limited to those who work in agriculture. Since Roundup is one of the most widely used herbicides on commercial farms, a lot of the food sold in grocery stores has been treated with Roundup. As a result, consumers may be exposed to Roundup simply by eating food sold in grocery stores.
