Millions of people in the United States and worldwide have used the Roundup weed killer in their yards and gardens. Sadly, many of these Roundup users have developed cancer, one of the adverse effects associated with the herbicide.
If you or a loved one developed cancer after using Roundup regularly, you may receive compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages. An attorney from Loncar Lyon Jenkins may help you join a Dallas Roundup cancer lawsuit seeking the compensation you deserve.
The Timeline of Roundup’s Toxicity
Roundup’s key chemical is glyphosate, which was originally manufactured by Monsanto in 1974. Per the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared glyphosate a “probable human carcinogen” in 2015. By extension, this meant that Roundup also became a known carcinogen.
Many studies since 1974 implicate Roundup as a cause of cancer in humans. Our attorneys understand the gravity of cancer, which is why we have made Roundup-related lawsuits a priority.
Researchers continue to monitor the potential of glyphosate to cause other serious health problems. You can speak with our firm if you or a loved one suffered serious health conditions after using Roundup. We may know the latest medical conditions linked to unsafe levels of glyphosate.

Adverse Health Effects Associated with Roundup
One of the most serious side effects from exposure to glyphosate is the development of cancer, specifically:
- Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
- B-cell Lymphoma
- Multiple Myeloma
At-risk segments of the population, such as those with compromised immune systems and pregnant women, may be at even greater risk for Roundup-related illness. Children of pregnant women may be adversely affected by Roundup exposure.
The documented and serious health effects of chronic exposure to glyphosate are unacceptable. Those diagnosed with cancer and victims whose loved ones have passed away from fatal, glyphosate-related illnesses deserve justice. Our firm will work to deliver that justice for you.
Who Is At Risk of Developing Cancer from Roundup?
If you had any significant interaction with glyphosate, such as using it regularly in your yard, you should speak with our team about your (or your loved one’s) cancer diagnosis. Some segments of the population face higher levels of glyphosate than most, and these segments include:
- Agricultural workers
- Farm and ranch owners
- Employees at nurseries and garden centers
- Residential maintenance workers
- Any other party who faces chronic exposure to Roundup
Individuals can be exposed to the toxic effects of glyphosate from breathing through spraying, mixing, environmental cleanup, or ingesting water or food contaminated with glyphosate-based herbicides.

Recoverable Damages for Victims of Roundup-Related Illnesses
By 2001, Roundup herbicide was the most-used active ingredient in American agriculture, with an estimated 85-90 million pounds used each year. Manufacturers and regulatory agencies failed to protect consumers, and those consumers suffered damages, including:
- The cost of medical bills, caregiver services, medical equipment, and other items and services related directly to illness
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income
- Diminished earning power
In the most tragic cases, chronic exposure to glyphosate claimed lives. Victims of Roundup-related wrongful deaths can seek compensation for funeral expenses, loss of consortium, lost financial support, and other damages. We offer our condolences if you have lost a loved one following chronic exposure to Roundup.
