Opening statements could begin as early as Monday for the trial of a California man suing herbicide Roundup maker Monsanto, whom he believes caused him to get cancer through its weed killer.

Dewayne “Lee” Johnson, a 46-year-old father of three, says he became sick after using the spray for more than two years as a groundskeeper for a school district outside of San Francisco.

Roundup’s main ingredient, glyphosate, has been linked to controversial reports since its debut in the late 1970s. In 2015, the World Health Organization classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans.” Monsanto has adamantly denied the claims.
