Glyphosate – Monsanto reaps what it sows in legal case

It is an astounding settlement in California. $289 million was awarded in damages to a school groundskeeper, Dewayne Johnson, who argued that Monsanto's Roundup weedkiller caused him to develop terminal lymphoma cancer covering 80% of his body in lesions. Mr. Johnson applied the glyphosate herbicide up to 30 times a year and, on two occasions, was inadvertently doused with the product (1).

In the trial proceedings leading up to the verdict, much damning evidence emerged. Mr. Johnson's lawyer argued that the Monsanto corporation knew of the carcinogenic dangers of glyphosate but chose to ignore and cover this information up.
