Keen gardeners everywhere will be watching the outcome of a court case in the United States, in which a former school groundsman who is dying of cancer says the manufacturers of a well-known weed killer caused his illness.
The 46-year-old father developed skin lesions and the disease which is now slowly killing him after spraying gallons of the herbicide Roundup as a school groundskeeper for two years in California.
He accuses Monsanto of suppressing evidence of the risks of Roundup’s main ingredient – glyphosate.
