Our firm is actively investigating cases where landscapers, farmers, groundskeepers or commercial gardeners used commercial grade Roundup and developed Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL). The generic name for this broad-spectrum systemic herbicide and crop desiccant is glyphosate. It is an organophosphorus compound, specifically a phosphonate, used to kill weeds that compete with crops.
In 2007, glyphosate was the most used herbicide in the United States’ agricultural sector and the second-most used in home and garden, government and industry, and commerce. By 2016 there was a 100-fold increase in the frequency of applications and volumes of glyphosate-based herbicides (GBHs) applied, partly in response to the unprecedented global emergence and spread of glyphosate-resistant weeds.
Plaintiffs across the country have filed lawsuits after having been diagnosed with NHL after using Monsanto’s herbicide.
