What is Roundup and does it cause cancer?
Roundup is a popular herbicide that was developed in the 1970s by agricultural giant Monsanto. Marketed as a weed control system with numerous applications, it has been widely used by homeowners and farmers alike for outdoor plant growth. By 2007, Roundup became the most commonly used herbicide in the American agricultural industry, and an estimated 1.4 billion pounds of Roundup is used annually. Monsanto’s line of Roundup herbicides typically comes in the form of bottled gels and concentrates, or tank sprayers of liquids for users to apply directly to unwanted weeds and grass.
In recent years, Monsanto has been the subject of individual and class action lawsuits for failing to adequately alert the public about the risk of cancer associated with the use of its Roundup herbicides. Thousands of people suffering from health complications have brought claims that the active ingredient in Roundup products, glyphosate, causes several types of cancer, including:
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- B-cell lymphoma
In August 2018, a California jury returned the most notable trial verdict to date for Roundup cancer cases when it ordered Monsanto to pay $289 million in damages to Dewayne Johnson, a former groundskeeper. Mr. Johnson was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after years of using Roundup weed killer and asserted that his exposure to the product drove the development of his cancer. The jury’s ruling shed light on the Roundup-cancer link by declaring that Monsanto intentionally hid information about the dangers of using glyphosate-based products such as Roundup.
The connection between cancer and Roundup use was first found in results of a 2015 study conducted by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). After investigating Roundup and other pesticides on the market, the IARC released a statement labeling glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans,” or that there is research-based evidence for a definite link between glyphosate and cancer. Further studies suggesting a risk of cancer and organ damage associated with glyphosate exposure have led several countries to regulate or ban its use actively.
