Dewayne Johnson has won his battle against chemical giant Monsanto. This former school groundskeeper, whose job involved spraying large quantities of Monsanto’s Roundup on a regular basis, developed a fatal form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and subsequently sued the company for his cancer. The company was ordered to pay $289m in damages to him. This historic verdict found that Monsanto’s glyphosate-based products present a substantial danger to people using them and that consumers should be warned of these risks.
