A jury in Los Angeles has handed Monsanto, owned by German firm Bayer AG, its first favorable verdict in Roundup case after finding that exposure to the weed killer was not a "substantial factor" in a little boy contracting a rare form of cancer.
Ezra Clark, now 10 years old, was only 4 when he was diagnosed with Burkitt's lymphoma. His mother, Destiny Clark, says the child was exposed to the herbicide when she used the product on her lawn. She sued Monsanto, becoming one of the 125,000-or-so plaintiffs who have gone to court seeking damages from the agrichemical company claiming Roundup caused adverse health effects.
