What Exactly Is Roundup®?
Roundup's main ingredient is a chemical called glyphosate. As early as 2003, a study on farm workers in the Midwest found that exposure to glyphosate was associated with higher rates of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma ("NHL"). NHL is a specific type of cancer that affects the lymphatic system.
In 2015, glyphosate was classified as "probably carcinogenic in humans" by the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer based on human, animal, and in vitro studies.
Bayer® Acquired Monsanto®

Frequently Asked Questions
Who are Roundup® lawsuits being filed against?
Lawsuits are being filed against both Monsanto and Bayer. Roundup® was initially manufactured by Monsanto, but Monsanto was purchased and absorbed by Bayer in 2018. When Bayer acquired Monsanto, its legal disputes became Bayer's responsibility as well. This includes the Roundup lawsuits.
What is the status of Roundup® lawsuits?
There have been several large jury verdicts in favor of plaintiffs in California, and tens of thousands of other Roundup® lawsuits are still pending in courts around the country. After two court losses for Bayer, a judge ordered the company to participate in mediation. During this process, the company will attempt to resolve outstanding cases with settlement agreements.
