In March 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization (WHO), determined that glyphosate — the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer — is “probably carcinogenic to humans”. IARC specifically linked Roundup exposure to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL).

Jury Returns $2 Billion Verdict Against Monsanto for Couple with Cancer
CNN — A jury recently handed a $2.055 billion verdict in favor of a couple in California who say their cancer was caused by long-term exposure to Monsanto’s popular weed killer Roundup, according to the plaintiffs’ attorneys. The company faces lawsuits by more than 13,400 plaintiffs nationwide. A series of Roundup jury verdicts against Bayer has prompted its share price to plummet. Under pressure from activist shareholders, Bayer on Wednesday said it set up a committee to help resolve the litigation and hired an external lawyer to advise its supervisory board, according to Reuters.
What is Roundup?
Roundup is a non-selective herbicide used to kill weeds that compete with agricultural crops. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, works by inhibiting a specific enzyme required for plant growth.
By 2001, Roundup was the most-used weed killer in American agriculture, with an estimated 85-90 million pounds used each year. In 2007, that number reached 185 million pounds annually, and today, Roundup remains the most widely used herbicide in the United States and worldwide.
