How did he manage to prove the sole cause of his cancer?

He didn't...a random jury were pursuaded by a lawyer that that was the case even though all the scientific evidence says otherwise...only in murica

Crazy stuff, he wasn't following usage instructions either spraying on windy days and using inferior spraying equipment.

So you reckon his cancer could have been caused by Roundup?

He should have been supplied with a respirator mask similar to the one below aswell as a disposable suit and rubber gloves to oper8 safely.

If he wasn't then his beef is with his employer surely and not the manufacturer of the product.

Both I guess, it depends on what instructions were on the container I think and whether safety gear was available to him and he chose not to use it.

It would be impossible to pin point the cause, if he didn't have proper spraying equipment and no safety gear that would be his employers fault. The thing is his lawyer convinced the jury which no doubt had limited knowledge of how he got cancer.
