A CALIFORNIAN couple have been awarded $2 billion (€1.8 billion) after developing cancer from using popular weed killer Roundup for 30 years.

The chemical, whose use has been restricted in many areas of Spain, has been cited in a slew of recent lawsuits over cancer concerns.

Alva and Alberta Pilliod, who have both battled non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, are among the first of 13,4000 claimants who say the chemical glysophate in Roundup has affected their health.

Despite the court ruling, Bayer, the company who owns Roundup, continue to deny fault, claiming studies have found the chemical safe.
