Does Roundup Cause Cancer?
Yes, there are thousands of lawsuits that have proven a link between different types of cancer and the weed killer. While the initial high-profile Roundup cancer cases focused on non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, there are now also links to leukemia and multiple myeloma .
The severity of leukemia treatments and life expectancy prognosis on each of these can be vastly different. And as a result, our attorneys have developed processes to ensure the evidence is presented in the best possible way.
It’s also important to note that if you had regular exposure to Roundup or other glyphosate-based herbicides in the past and developed a different type of cancer, you could still be eligible to file a case against Monsanto/Bayer.
Who Is Eligible for a Lawsuit in Connecticut?
In Connecticut, lawsuits are a legal option people may be eligible for if they were regularly exposed to the Roundup weed killer and later developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma or other types of cancer.
The important thing to note is that it’s not enough to only prove roundup use. A plaintiff has to have a personal injury in the form of a cancer diagnosis as well.
The tricky part of every lawsuit is presenting the case in a district court with the right evidence to establish the link between the active ingredient glyphosate and your diagnosis.
Keep in mind that while the EPA still doesn’t acknowledge that glyphosate can cause cancer, the International Agency For Research On Cancer, part of the World Health Organization, has listed glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen .
If you have had exposure to Roundup in the past and are unsure about whether your non-Hodgkin lymphoma diagnosis or other illness might be related, contact our law firm today. We will fully assess your case for free and advise you on the best legal action to take.
“The International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics, has issued a statement advocating a worldwide end to glyphosate usage, due to the potential cancer risk and adverse health effects.”

What Is the Statute of Limitations in Connecticut?
The statute of limitation for lawsuits in Connecticut is two years . But it’s important to understand that this time limit doesn’t start with the initial Roundup exposure. Developing cancer can take many years, and it’s only from the time of the first symptoms or Roundup cancer diagnosis that time starts ticking.
In Connecticut, lawsuits have set a lot of precedents when it comes to presenting a timeline of when a plaintiff developed cancer. And it’s important that your lawyers have the experience to file your claim and present the evidence in the right time frame.
