Updated: CA Jury Awards Couple $2 Billion in Landmark Roundup Cancer Trial Verdict
May 15, 2019 – Bayer suffered another catastrophic financial hit Monday, the hardest yet involving litigation alleging that its newly adopted Roundup weed killer increases the risk for non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other types of cancer.

What’s the Problem with Glyphosate?
Glyphosate has recently been found to double the risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and increase the risk of a related cancer, multiple myeloma, according to an IARC report published in July 2015. The researchers found that glyphosate is definitely carcinogenic to animals in lab studies, and that human exposure is linked to an increased risk for blood cancers such as lymphoma.
The report confirmed IARC’s previous meta-analysis, which evaluated several studies and found that occupational exposure to glyphosate doubles the risk for non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The July 2015 report also noted earlier research which found that farm workers’ exposure to glyphosate increases their risk of multiple myeloma by 70-100%.
