Monsanto ordered to pay $289m damages in Roundup cancer trial
In a landmark USA law case, Monsanto have been ordered to pay $289m (£226m) damages to groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson who claimed herbicides containing glyphosate had caused his cancer.
The Californian jury found that Monsanto knew its Roundup and RangerPro weedkillers were dangerous and failed to warn consumers.
Monsanto denies that glyphosate causes cancer and says it intends to appeal against the ruling.
