Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Claims for Glyphosate Exposure

Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLC stands at the forefront of advocating for the rights of individuals harmed by negligent corporations. Since 1922, our unwavering commitment to justice has led us to hold companies accountable for endangering consumer safety. Today, we turn our focus to a pressing issue affecting countless lives: the harmful impact of Roundup, the world’s leading herbicide.

Roundup has long been a staple in the agricultural community and beyond, boasting sales of $5 billion for Monsanto in 2015 alone. Developed in the 1970s and widely used by farmers, gardeners, rail workers, and landscapers, its main component, glyphosate, was designed to improve crop yields by eliminating weeds efficiently. However, the safety of glyphosate exposure has come under severe scrutiny. Though Bayer bought Monsanto in 2018, its best-selling product remains a source of profit—and harm.

The Growing Concern

Studies tracing back to the 1980s have highlighted a disturbing connection between glyphosate and cancer, with Monsanto—and subsequently Bayer—facing criticism for attempting to minimize these concerns. The alarm was sounded loudly in 2017 when the OEHHA recognized glyphosate as a cancer-causing chemical. Research conducted in 2019 further cemented these fears, showing a 41% increase in cancer risk, particularly non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), for individuals with glyphosate exposure.

Researchers discovered Californians have seen a 500% increase in glyphosate levels in their bodies since 1996, an alarming statistic. This isn’t just a matter of numbers—it’s a matter of health, safety, and lives at stake.


The Science Behind the Claims

Glyphosate’s intended effect on plants—blocking a crucial enzyme for growth—is achieved with the aid of detergents that help the chemical penetrate the plant’s surface. It’s this same penetrating action that researchers believe allows glyphosate to breach the human skin barrier, reach internal tissues, and potentially alter human DNA, setting the stage for cancerous growths.

Symptoms of Glyphosate Exposure

While glyphosate does not build up in the body over time, repeated exposure can increase the chances of developing Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. NHL typically starts in the lymph nodes and may spread to other areas of the body, such as the tonsils, spleen, and bone marrow. However, cancer growth is not the only symptom of glyphosate exposure.

Short-term symptoms of glyphosate exposure may include:

  • Breathing difficulties, including asthma
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness

Anyone who uses Roundup may be at risk of these or other symptoms. Workers who are exposed to large amounts of Roundup for an extended period of time are even more likely to develop side effects, especially respiratory problems. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and have recently used or been exposed to Roundup, it's important to act quickly.

Legal Victories Against Bayer

The tide is turning in favor of plaintiffs. Recent high-profile court victories have seen users of Roundup with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma win significant verdicts against Bayer, signaling a breakthrough in accountability and a warning to corporations about the consequences of concealing product risks.

Recently, a 10-case winning streak for Bayer was broken with two dramatic results: a $175 million verdict from a Philadelphia jury and a $332 million verdict from a San Diego jury. Both were for men who’d spent decades using Roundup and developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
