Big Ag/Big Pharma corporation Bayer failed to persuade a California appeals court to overturn a verdict favoring a school groundskeeper who claimed its Roundup weed killer caused his cancer, but reduced the amount of damages by 74% to $20.5 million…
In addition to settlements for PCB and Dicamba, aspirin giant, pharmaceutical-agricultural chemicals company Bayer says it will pay up to $10.9 billion to settle a lawsuit over subsidiary Monsanto’s weedkiller Roundup.
The microbes that inhabit our bodies are influenced by what we eat, drink, breathe and absorb through our skin, and most of us are chronically exposed to natural and human-made environmental contaminants. In this study, scientists reviewed the research linking dozens of chemicals present in our personal care products, home care products, general environment and our food to changes in the gut microbiome and associated health challenges.
Bayer claims that the economic downturn resulting from the corona virus is behind the decision to offer less compensation to customers with cancer.
A new scientific study has demonstrated that RoundUp weedkiller triggers loss to biodiversity, thereby making ecosystems more vulnerable to pollution and climate change.
The CEO of Bayer is now saying the company would be willing to settle with all the litigants suing with claims their cancer diagnoses were the result of the controversial chemical glyphosate in RoundUp Weedkiller.
In one of many consumer lawsuits against Bayer Chemical arguing the (previously Monsanto product) RoundUp weedkiller with glyphosate was responsible for their cancer, a U.S. District judge in San Francisco, California upheld the jury’s recommendation for compensatory damages while reducing the amount awarded for punitive damages.
Flawed governmental policies and oversight are to blame for failures to protect human and environmental health from toxic chemicals, argue scientists.
Yet another study has just been published that has as its premise, “If we could just get the idiot public to understand science, they would change their negative attitudes about GMO food”. The problem? As with the researchers that came before them did, the researchers in the current replication study neglected to inform study participants of TWO KEY FACTORS SURROUNDING GMO FOOD: (1) High levels of Monsanto’s Round-Up Weedkiller pesticide is present in GMO foods on the grocery shelves, and (2) No safety testing for GMO foods has ever been conducted in the U.S.
A California jury on May 13, 2019 awarded more than $2 billion to a couple who claimed Bayer’s glyphosate-based Roundup weed killer caused their cancer, in the largest U.S. jury verdict to date against the company in litigation over the chemical.
