Roundup is the most commonly used herbicide in the world. Roundup’s active ingredient is glyphosate, a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide.
We have been contacted by a number of people who have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and who have significant levels of exposure to Roundup and other glyphosate-containing products manufactured by Monsanto.
If you or someone you know have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, register your details with us.
We will review your details and keep you updated about any developments in our investigation.
Frequently Asked Questions
In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC, part of the World Health Organisation) released a report finding that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup-branded herbicides and the most widely-used herbicidal chemical on the planet, was found to be a probable human carcinogen (cancer-causing chemical). In particular, IARC found a link between non-Hodgkin lymphoma and exposure to glyphosate-containing products.
In the last twelve months, three separate juries in the United States have awarded significant compensation to people who had alleged their non-Hodgkin lymphoma was caused by Roundup or other products manufactured by Monsanto. On the latest figures, 13,400 plaintiffs are currently seeking compensation from the company due to Roundup/glyphosate exposure in the US.
The latest meta-analysis (a “study of studies”) shows that people exposed to significant levels of Roundup or glyphosate (for instance, through their work in agriculture or vegetation management) have a 41% increased risk of going on to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
We are currently investigating a number of cases of people who have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and who have significant levels of exposure to Roundup/glyphosate. We will use the information you provide to discover the scale of the problem in the Australian community and to identify potential test cases under Australian law. By providing your contact details, we will keep you updated in relation to this investigation and any case developments.
