Roundup weed killer linked to cancer

Many landscapers, farmers and homeowners who thought they were responsibly caring for their yards, gardens and farms by keeping out weeds are now suffering from a devastating consequence: cancer.

A growing number of people have filed lawsuits claiming that using Roundup weed killer caused them or their loved ones to develop certain types of cancer, particularly non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma and leukemia.

Roundup is a week killer made by agricultural giant Monsanto. The active ingredient in the product is glyphosate, an herbicide that has been linked to an increased risk of cancer in several studies. In 2015, the World Health Organization classified glyphosate as a "probable carcinogen."

While Monsanto's Roundup is the most well-known brand of products that include glyphosate, several other brands of weed killer also contain the ingredient. Examples include Bonide KleenUp, Ortho GroundClear and several other brands. Anyone who uses weed killer should carefully examine the list of ingredients on the bottle to determine whether glyphosate is an ingredient.

People who regularly come into physical contact with weed killer products, including farmers, produce pickers and handlers, professional landscapers and people with large yards, are most at risk for developing cancer caused by exposure to glyphosate.
