Roundup weed killer contributed to man's cancer, 1st US federal trial told

Roundup weed killer contributed to man's cancer, 1st US federal trial toldThe controversial weed killer Roundup was a “substantial factor” in the cancer of a US man who woke up one day with a lump in his throat and was soon diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, his lawyer said Monday, opening the first US federal trial of its kind. Edwin Hardeman, of Sonoma County north of San Francisco, filed a complaint against Roundup’s manufacturer Monsanto in early 2016, a year after being diagnosed with the cancer. Jurors in a California State Court last August unanimously found that Monsanto acted with “malice” and that its weed killers Roundup and Ranger Pro contributed “substantially” to Johnson’s terminal illness.
