What Killed Jack McCall?
A California Farmer Dies and a Case Against Monsanto Takes Root

California farmer Jack McCall, used Monsanto Roundup [glyphosate] on his 20-acre fruit and vegetable farm for nearly 30 years. When he stopped using Roundup after learning of glyphosate’s link to cancer, McCall had already developed cancer symptoms.

On December 26, 2015, Jack McCall passed away after suffering a massive stroke due to complications from a rare version of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. His widow, Teri McCall has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Monsanto, claiming exposure to Roundup caused her late husband to develop cancer. The lawsuit further alleges that Monsanto purposely downplayed the cancer risk associated with Roundup exposure.

So far, more than 900 people across the United States, who have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, have sued Monsanto. Thousands more have hired attorneys and their lawsuits will be filed in due time.

The impact on the environment throughout the extensive supply chain are devastating and in my view, not discussed enough .
