Roundup Lawsuits in St. Louis
Exposure to Roundup Weed Killer Linked to Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
The popular herbicide Roundup has been linked to a range of cancers, most notably non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The culprit is its active ingredient, glyphosate, which the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified as a probable carcinogen. Bayer (formerly Monsanto), the corporation that owns the patent on glyphosate, continues to claim that Roundup is safe for use.

First created in 1974, Roundup is one of the most popular herbicides on the American market. It is often used on farms, crops, and estates. Many use it in their home gardens, as well. This means that many people have been exposed to Roundup over the years, be it at work or at home.
Should You Really Be Worried About Using Roundup?
In short, yes. The margin for error is very high when it comes to Roundup. Its ready availability at most home improvement stores and a lack of regulation around who can buy it only make it a bigger public safety concern. Further, its previous marketing as “safer than table salt” has led many to believe it is harmless, that no real precautions should be taken when using it. Nothing is further from the truth, however: Research has shown that if Roundup is inhaled, ingested, or even absorbed through the skin, serious health conditions may result.
Gardeners, groundskeepers, landscapers, and agricultural workers are the most at risk of toxic exposure to Roundup. As such, the majority of Roundup lawsuits has been brought forth by persons from these demographics.
