Roundup does cause cancer, says court in $2bn damages award image

Roundup, Monsanto's popular weed-killer, causes cancer, a court has decided in a ruling that has awarded massive damages of $2bn to a couple who developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma after using the product for 20 years.

Another 13,000 cases are waiting in the wings, and it's thought that Bayer—which bought Monsanto last autumn—is about to throw in the towel. Awards of $289m and $80m have previously been made to people who developed cancer after using Roundup, although Bayer says it is appealing the current verdict.

Attorney Brian Mahany, who has been involved in several of the suits against Monsanto, believes Bayer is planning a global settlement for anyone who has cancer, or lost a family member to cancer, after using Roundup.

Roundup's active ingredient, glyphosate, is suspected to be carcinogenic(cancer-causing), and has previously been linked to other cancers, including myeloma and leukaemia.

The latest ruling goes against an endorsement that the US's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) gave to Roundup, claiming it was not a carcinogen. But reporters at CNN uncovered a close relationship between the EPA and the company, with one official saying he would try to "kill" a government review of glyphosate.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer concluded in 2015 that glyphosate is a "probable human carcinogen".
