This litigation asserts that the active ingredient in Roundup products, glyphosate, is a human carcinogen that has been associated with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The claim alleges that the defendants knew or ought to have known that Significant Exposure to Roundup products can cause cancer; but the defendants distributed and/or sold Roundup products nonetheless and failed to warn users and the public about those cancer risks. Further, the defendants engaged in years of bad faith activities to sow confusion and doubt with the public about the state of the science on Roundup in order to preserve and grow their profits.

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a rare blood cancer that starts in the body’s immune system. Numerous reports have linked this cancer to glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUp. Numerous reports also link it to chromosomal and DNA damage in cells, as well as other types of blood-related cancers.
A review by the University of Washington found that agricultural professionals exposed to glyphosate have a 41% higher risk of contracting non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma than those with low or no exposure. It is getting harder and harder for Bayer to claim that this product is “perfectly safe” and does not cause cancer. There is overwhelming proof that it does.
While Bayer continues to claim that RoundUp is safe and has always been safe, they are finally talking about pulling the product. American NHL Roundup claims have already been resolved to the tune of $10 billion, but Canadians victims are yet to see justice.
