Roundup Weedkiller has been associated to Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) conducted a meta review of studies that looked at the link between Roundup weedkiller and cancer in 2015. They determined that the popular herbicide is most likely a carcinogen and that non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is the cancer most frequently connected to exposure to Roundup. Since the release of the study, more than 40,000 people have taken legal action against the makers of Roundup to seek compensation for the harms they have suffered.

Monsanto was responsible for the initial introduction of Roundup (glyphosate) to the US market.
The initial report indicating a potential link between glyphosate and cancer was published.
Glyphosate was included in the World Health Organization's roster of potential human carcinogens.
The first legal actions alleging product liability against Monsanto concerning Roundup were initiated.
A research study was released establishing a connection between Roundup and skin cancer.
Bayer, the pharmaceutical behemoth, declared its purchase of Monsanto for a substantial $66 billion.
Monsanto encountered the submission of numerous lawsuits.
The initial Roundup lawsuit proceeded to trial, resulting in the jury granting $289 million in damages, leading to a significant drop in Bayer's stock value.
The second legal case at the state level concerning Roundup exposure was brought to trial, with the jury granting an astonishing $2 billion in damages.
Facing increasing scrutiny, the CEO of Bayer has declared that the company will aim to resolve the Roundup cases.
Bayer reportedly proposed an $8 billion settlement for the 18,000 pending cases linked to glyphosate exposure. Nonetheless, the plaintiff's committee is pushing for a settlement figure of $10 billion.
The second trial focusing on Roundup took place in a California state court, resulting in the jury granting a remarkable $2 billion in damages to the plaintiff.
The global settlement proposal involves dedicating $10 billion to address existing claims and establishing a contentious scientific panel to decide the outcomes of all future claims.
The final approval of the Roundup settlement was postponed for several months due to objections concerning the proposed approach for resolving future claims via a scientific panel.
The Roundup MDL Judge rejected Bayer's request for the endorsement of a contentious settlement plan, which would have left the outcomes of all future Roundup claims uncertain.
Bayer has earmarked $4.5 billion for forthcoming Roundup claims and declared the removal of the glyphosate-based Roundup from the U.S. consumer market.

Recent Updates in the Roundup Lawsuit Against Monsanto
Roundup™ Cancer Compensation
What makes the Roundup compensation relevant to you?
Monsanto, the maker of Roundup, has insisted since they introduced the product in the 1970s that it was safe and has denied the assertion that there’s a link between their product and cancers. They even said in an advertisement that the product was “safer than table salt.” The World Health Organization (WHO) disagrees. They’ve labeled Roundup a “probable human carcinogen.” Those who have used Roundup frequently, such as farm workers, gardeners, landscapers, and others have shown an elevated probability of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other cancers. Internal Monsanto company emails have recently revealed that the firm has been aware of the link for decades and chose to conceal the risks for the sake of profit.
