Since the 1970s, hundreds of thousands of farmers have used Roundup, the most commonly used weed killer and herbicide, manufactured by Monsanto. Between 1992 and 2016, usage of Roundup in New York State alone rose almost 800%. Over 1.4 billion pounds of Roundup were applied per year and it has been used in at least 160 countries throughout the world. The safety of Roundup has frequently been called into question over the past few years. Glyphosate, a key compound in Roundup, is believed to cause several types of cancer. As a result, thousands of lawsuits are being pursued against Monsanto for the cancer that Roundup has caused.
In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a division of the World Health Organization (WHO), released a health assessment regarding glyphosate, the active compound in Monsanto’s Roundup. The IARC’s assessment concluded that glyphosate, as a Group 2A agent, is most likely carcinogenic to people. Furthermore, exposure to weed killer was specifically connected to hairy cell leukemia, lymphocytic lymphoma, B-cell lymphoma, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and several other types of cancer.

Farmers throughout New York State have been using Roundup since it was first introduced in the 1990s. Since then, millions of acres of land have been poisoned with the carcinogen. As more genetically modified soybeans and corn crops were cultivated, the use of Roundup weed killer dramatically spread. This has resulted in an increase of nearly ten times the amount of glyphosate used in the past 20 years, which explains the rapidly increasing number of cancer patients connected to Roundup.
Until recently, weed killers containing glyphosate were thought to be non-toxic and harmless. Nevertheless, contact with Roundup consists of exposure to numerous hazardous chemicals that can result in serious health problems for victims. It is especially troublesome that most victims exposed to Roundup thought that the weed killer was harmless. Many health-related agencies and organizations have since determined that glyphosate is dangerous to people. Various independent medical studies and disease rate analyses have linked the use of weed killers containing glyphosate to severe health problems that affect countless people throughout Western New York and the United States. Listed below are several common health problems that have been linked to exposure to glyphosate:
- Various anxiety disorders;
- Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD);
- Autism spectrum disorder (ASD);
- Liver and Kidney disease;
- Crohn’s disease;
- Celiac disease;
- Thyroid cancer;
- Breast cancer;
- Brain cancer;
- Parkinson’s disease;
- Dementia; and
- Alzheimer’s disease.
Despite all of the independent studies, Monsanto continues to deny any link between their weed killer and cancer.

Roundup is commonly sprayed on gardens, lawns, farms, golf courses, nurseries, sidewalks and driveways. Since Monsanto asserted their weed killer was safe, most users never used protective gloves or masks while handling the product. As a result, thousands of farmers, gardeners, nursery workers, field workers, agricultural workers and landscapers were repeatedly and directly exposed to the toxic chemicals in Roundup. Laboratory research has revealed that the more someone has been exposed to glyphosate, the more likely they are to develop cancer. Field workers that regularly spray Roundup are 41% more likely to experience Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Research suggests that workers may be exposed to weed killer even if they are not actually applying it.
When weed killer is sprayed onto produce, its residue mixes in with the air, drinking water and with our food supply. This means that virtually everyone faces a risk of indirect exposure to the hazardous chemicals of Roundup through one means or another. Roundup was an extremely popular product and commonly used in parks, sports fields and schools. Approximately two-thirds of air samples taken throughout New York around growing season last year tested positive for levels of glyphosate, which demonstrates that farmers, as well as people living around agricultural areas, are being exposed to weed killer inhalation. In addition, traces of Roundup are regularly found in surface water.
Furthermore, incidences of glyphosate been found in various foods such as soy sauce, orange juice, honey, cereal, beer, baby formulas and even breast milk. Soybeans are a key ingredient for most processed foods sold throughout the country. It is estimated that nearly 80% of all food available in New York has some traces of Roundup contamination, putting all consumers at an increased risk of developing related cancers. In fact, the contamination is so wide-spread that no one is completely immune to being exposed to glyphosate. As of 2016, most weed killer contamination in New York is divided between corn and soybeans. Unfortunately, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration only recently developed a test to detect glyphosate levels in food in order to determine what other portions of the food supply are safe.
