A CORPORATE COVERUP
For years, Roundup has been touted as a safe, easy-to-use herbicide, effectively becoming one of the most popular weed-killers. As a result, Monsanto achieved enormous success, resulting in a highly profitable acquisition by Bayer AG.
Then, a recent study highlighted that glyphosate, a main ingredient in Roundup, was carcinogenic. Shortly thereafter, it was revealed that Monsanto was aware of the health concerns in their popular product but had failed to appropriately warn consumers; instead, they tried to cover it up by “ghostwriting” scientific studies that scientists would only edit and sign.
Once marketed as “safer than table salt,” Roundup was sold to individual consumers and industrial-scale organizations alike since it was first introduced in the 1970s. When the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), part of the World Health Organization (WHO), revealed that glyphosate was not the safe product they’d been told it was in 2015, it quickly became public that Monsanto had known for decades and was actively working to cover it up.
Since then, tens of thousands of people have come forward to seek justice from Monsanto’s gross negligence and more research has come out linking glyphosate-based herbicides with illnesses such as non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
As a result, jurors are seeing the mounting evidence and taking action. The hundreds of thousands of pages of documents being turned over have revealed a decades-long coverup attempt, bringing to light the extent of which the company was aware of the dangerous health concerns of their popular product.

Most commonly, glyphosate is linked to non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a cancer that starts in the lymphatic system. Treatment options range from therapy to radiation to stem cell transplants to chemotherapy. In addition to non-Hodgkin lymphoma, consumers may also suffer from:
- Kidney disease
- Liver damage
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- ALS (“Lou Gehrig’s Disease”)
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Respiratory disorders
As of February 2020, nearly 3,000 actions were pending in federal court against Monsanto by individuals suffering because of their use of Roundup.
