Update: New Study Finds Glyphosate in Dozens More Cereals,Children’s Foods
October 25, 2018 – A new study conducted by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found the controversial herbicide glyphosate in at least 28 cereals and other children’s foods, less than 3 months after another study found “a hefty dose” of the weed killer in dozens of similar products.
What is Glyphosate?
Glyphosate is a synthetic compound that works as a non-selective systemic herbicide used to kill perennial weeds, grasses, bushes, and certain types of trees. The product was created by The Monsanto Company and first approved for use by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 1974. Glyphosate has grown to become one of the most widely-used herbicides on the planet, and is used in at least 750 different products in the U.S. alone.
Which Herbicides Contain Glyphosate?
Some glyphosate-containing weed killers include:
- Roundup Pro
- Roundup Ultra
- Ranger Pro
- Eraser Weed Killer
- Garlon Fallow Master Herbicide
- LandMaster Weed Killer
- Campaign Herbicide
- Accord Herbicide
- And more
Glyphosate Cancer Studies
Glyphosate has been classified as a “probable human carcinogen” by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which found “convincing evidence” that the chemical caused cancer in laboratory animals. An IARC study found “limited evidence” linking glyphosate exposures to non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a type of blood cancer, in humans. Roundup has also been controversial for its widespread use on genetically modified seeds, and research that links the weed killer to antibiotic resistance and hormone disruption.

Can I File a Glyphosate Suit?
Only a qualified attorney can determine whether you are eligible to file a lawsuit against Monsanto, the maker of glyphosate, which is why we are currently offering free case evaluations. Simply fill out the confidential evaluation form below to contact our law firm now.
Most cases involving products liability allege that a product was sold with design, manufacturing, and/or marketing defects, which typically refers to a company’s failure to warn of a certain potential health risk. In the case of glyphosate, our attorneys suspect that patients may be able to take legal action in light of claims that Monsanto failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about the risk of cancer, specifically non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
How Can Filing a Lawsuit Help Me?
By filing a lawsuit against the maker of glyphosate, you may be entitled to collect compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to the treatment of your lymphoma, as well as for damages for pain and suffering. Additionally, filing a lawsuit can help hold the herbicide’s manufacturer accountable for releasing an allegedly defective product into the marketplace, and to discourage other companies from engaging in similar conduct.
