Hundreds of lawsuits alleging Roundup caused cancer advanced a crucial step forward on Thursday when a judge in San Francisco Superior Court ruled that a cancer victim could present expert testimony linking the herbicide to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

What’s the problem?
July 12, 2018 – U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria said evidence linking glyphosate — the active ingredient in Roundup and the chemical alleged to cause lymphoma in the lawsuits — was “rather weak”; however, he also affirmed that the opinions of 3 experts linking the weed killer to cancer were relevant, and not tantamount to “junk science.”
The suits allege that Monsanto has known for decades about the cancer risk with Roundup, yet failed to adequately warn the public, medical, and scientific communities. Chhabria’s ruling allows the complaints to advance a crucial step forward, though Chhabria warned it could be a “daunting challenge” to convince him that glyphosate causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Many U.S. government agencies have rejected the link between cancer and glyphosate. Monsanto has, of course, forcefully denied the connection, claiming that the chemical is among the most tested of all-time, and that hundreds of studies have established that the chemical is safe.
Monsanto is currently facing more than 4,000 lawsuits that claim otherwise, according to ABC News. Chhabria is presiding over about 400 of them.
