The trial continues in a California case alleging cancerous effects of Bayer’s Roundup.
Reuters reports that jury talks have begun in a California trial involving a man alleging that Bayer’s “Roundup” weedkiller (also known as glyphosate) caused his cancer. The plaintiff, Edward Hardeman, allegedly used more than 6,000 gallons of Roundup over more than twenty years before contracting non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
More than 10,000 other Roundup lawsuits have gone to trial in the U.S. In August, Roundup was found by a state court jury to be the cause of a different man’s cancer.
Roundup is another name for glyphosate, an herbicide. Exposure can occur with inhalation, ingestion, or skin contact.
In 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans”.
