A 70-year-old California man was awarded $ 80 million in compensation for his claim that a grasshopper caused his cancer.
A six-person jury in San Francisco returned the amount to Edwin Hardeman on Wednesday. The same jury discovered earlier that Roundup-labeled lawn mower was a significant factor in his non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Agribusiness giant Monsanto faces thousands of similar lawsuits nationwide. Monsanto said studies have determined that the active ingredient in its widely used grasshopper is safe.
Another jury in August gave another man $ 289 million.
DeWayne Johnson, an earthquake in a San Francisco Bay Area school area, sprayed large quantities of the product, sold under the brand name Roundup, from a 50 gallon tank attached to a truck during gusts. He said the product would often cover his face, and once a snake broke, the whole body was covered.
A judge later slashed the prize to $ 78 million, and Monsanto has appealed.
