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.
In the first of its kind study scientists have just discovered that adverse effects on the body from popular weedkiller RoundUp (glyphosate) carry over to future generations–and in some cases, even get worse.
