A federal jury in California found that a Monsanto's Roundup weed killer caused a 70-year old man's cancer, the second major blow for the company in a year.

The six-member jury in San Francisco federal civil court unanimously concluded on Tuesday that glyphosate — Roundup's key ingredient — was a "substantial factor" in Sonoma resident Edwin Hardeman’s non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The jury's verdict is the second out of a long list of future lawsuits. Approximately 11,200 plaintiffs, who claim they were exposed to glyphosate, are suing the company as of Jan. 28, according to the company's annual report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Hardeman's lawyers said the elderly man developed non-Hodgkins lymphoma after using Roundup to spray his properties for almost three decades.
