It’s tough to imagine any scenario in which someone with terminal cancer “wins.” 

But DeWayne Lee Johnson, suffering from terminal non-Hodgkin lymphoma, can at least say that he prevailed over one of the worst corporations in the world.

As U.S. Right to Know’s Carey Gillam reports, on July 20, an appeals court rejected Bayer’s effort to overturn the trial victory notched by a California school groundskeeper who alleged exposure to Monsanto’s glyphosate herbicides caused him to develop cancer.

The court did say that the amount awarded to Johnson should be lowered, to $20.5 million. But the court also said this:

“In our view, Johnson presented abundant—and certainly substantial— evidence that glyphosate, together with the other ingredients in Roundup products, caused his cancer. Expert after expert provided evidence both that Roundup products are capable of causing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma . . . and caused Johnson’s cancer in particular.”

“Expert after expert.” And still, we have to fight this battle. Thank you, Mr. Johnson, for taking on the poison cartel.
