Thousands of people have filed lawsuits against Monsanto, the maker of Roundup, claiming the weed killer causes cancer. And juries in some cases have returned massive verdicts of $2 billion, $289 million and $80 million against Bayer AG, which owns Monsanto. The lawsuits largely claim that Roundup causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer due to its active ingredient, glyphosate.

Roundup is manufactured by Monsanto, which was bought by Bayer in 2018 in a $63 billion deal. Bayer has since been caught up in litigation over claims the weed killer causes cancer. The company insists it is not a carcinogen, but juries have disagreed.
In 2019, juries reached verdicts of $2 billion verdict and $80 million for California plaintiffs who said they got non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma from using Roundup. Earlier, in August 2019, attorneys won another large verdict, $289 million to a former groundskeeper who blamed his terminal cancer on Monsanto's Roundup, though the verdict was reduced by the judge in the case to $78.5 million.
