Monsanto: Roundup substantial factor in man’s cancer, jury finds in key verdict

Wednesday 20:54 GMT

A federal jury in San Francisco found Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide was a substantial factor in causing the cancer of a California man, in a landmark verdict that could affect hundreds of other cases.
