Last weekend, I had the special opportunity to interview Dewayne “Lee” Johnson, the groundskeeper who sued Monsanto for giving him cancer and was awarded $289M from a California jury.

Dewayne Johnson was in town to attend the premiere of the documentary Ground War — a filmmaker’s investigation into the death of his father takes him deep into the world of golf, chemical lobbying, and citizen activism, where he learns that the rampant use of pesticides around the world may be far more damaging than he thought.

Ground War was the feature film during the 37th National Pesticide Forum, a conference which was held on Friday and Saturday in New York City.

As Dewayne Johnson told me, his Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma has taken a real toll, and he has lesions all over his body. Needless to say, it is a travesty that people such as Dewayne Johnson have suffered so greatly at the hands of a chemical that should never have been allowed on the market in the first place.

For this man to travel across the country to be at this event speaks to the incredible individual he is, and Dewayne Johnson is an unquestioned hero to those of us in the organic community.

This was the most emotional interview I have ever done.

    somebody please get this man a taraxicum oficinale salad lifetime supply, and at least a few pounds to start of some staghorn sumac, maybe some cloves, some vitamin e, and he better have a huge organic garden with veggies and herbs. does the man like coffee? how about a decaf organic coffee share. if you have money, you can do this. maybe he could too! i think he can achieve health and beating this is only a step in the path he will walk in life. these antioxidants could be a small part of a solution for him if all bought organic. i have no way to pay for all of this.

    Dewayne “Lee” Johnson will go down in history as a pioneer in the history of the awakening of the masses against Roundup, hopefully further educating them about Monsanto, and paving the way for many more lawsuits and exposure of these toxic products in our environment.

    He is very brave to take on this cause in spite of his personal struggle to fight this horrible disease, and I salute him!
