A San Francisco jury in August 2018 ordered the Monsanto Company to pay $289 million to a former school groundskeeper who claims he developed terminal lymphoma after using Roundup and other glyphosate chemicals for several years at his job. Monsanto "acted with malice, oppression or fraud and should be punished for its conduct," Judge Suzanne Ramos Bolanos said after the verdict was announced.

What’s the Problem with Glyphosate?
Glyphosate in the most commonly used amenity weed killer on the planet, according to the Crop Protection Act. In 2012 alone, the glyphosate market was valued at 5 billion, with value projected to continue climbing upwards of $9 billion by 2024.
Along with its widespread use and massive profits reaped by Monsanto, glyphosate has definitely seen its share of controversy as of late. In March 2015, the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared glyphosate to be “probably carcinogenic” to humans after conducting a year-long study. Results of the study were published in the The Lancet Oncology.
What Does Monsanto Say?
