Monsanto's Roundup Loses Second Cancer Case, With 11,000 More to Come


After a three-year long lawsuit, Monsanto has been charged and ordered to pay more than $80 million in damages to Edwin Hardeman, CNN reported on Wednesday. The California resident claims that Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, which is the corporation’s brand name for glyphosate, caused his non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The jury agreed that Roundup was a significant cause of Hardeman’s cancer, and that because Roundup does not come with a cancer-causing warning, Monsanto should be legally held responsible.

As the New York Times explained, Hardeman used Roundup on his property for 26 years. He was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, which is a cancer that starts in the lymphatic system, in 2015. Shortly after, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that glyphosate is a possible carcinogen, which means it promotes the formation of cancer. Once the 70-year-old learned that, he sued Monsanto.
