Concerns regarding the health risks associated with Roundup, the world’s most popular weed killer, are mounting. Although marketed as a safe way to manage weeds and unwanted vegetation, the active chemical in Monsanto’s broad-spectrum herbicide has been declared a probable carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). As a result, farmers, groundskeepers, landscapers, agricultural workers, and homeowners who routinely use the product are at a high-risk of developing cancer. More than 40,000 victims across the country are seeking damages, alleging RoundUp to be the cause of their illness. Call our mass tort litigation lawyers for your Georgia Roundup lawsuit today.

Roundup is a glyphosate-based herbicide that is primarily used in agriculture and most commonly sprayed by farmers who grow fruit and vegetable crops, as well as glyphosate-resistant crops. Those consist of canola, corn, cotton, soybeans, sugar beets, and wheat.
The herbicide is also popular for its use in greenhouses, garden centers, nurseries, and on lawns. Therefore, many types of people and workers are consistently exposed to glyphosate and put in danger. Exposure can happen in one or all of the following ways:
An immediate symptom is typically irritation of the eyes, skin, nose, or throat. Followed possibly by nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Recent studies show that glyphosate does severe damage to human DNA, as well as the kidney and liver. Damage to those organs can disrupt the body’s endocrine system, which is responsible for regulating hormones. Any disruption to this system can increase the risk of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. A scientific analysis published in February 2019 specifically indicates that glyphosate raises the risk of developing NHL by 41 percent.
In a little over four months, the number of plaintiffs pursuing damages from Monsanto have shot up from 18,400 to 42,700. Lawsuits are being filed on the grounds of a combination of the following allegations:
Three cases have made it to trial and have all resulted in verdicts favoring the plaintiffs, with multimillion-dollar awards. Many Roundup cancer lawsuits are filed in different state courts, and others have been consolidated into federal multi-district litigation (MDL) in Northern California. The next case is set to be tried in January 2020 in St. Louis City Court.
