Jurors say Roundup contributed to a 2nd man's cancer. Now thousands more cases against Monsanto await

Monsanto and thousands of plaintiffs are at odds over whether Roundup weedkiller can cause cancer.

(CNN)A federal jury dealt a huge blow to Monsanto, saying its popular weedkiller Roundup was a substantial factor in causing a California man's cancer.

It's the second time in eight months that a jury has reached such a decision.
But Edwin Hardeman's case against Monsanto is the first to be tried in federal court. And thousands of similar cases are still pending at the federal or state level.
