Monsanto / Bayer hit with another jury decision that confirms Roundup (glyphosate) caused man’s cancer… 9,000 more lawsuits are pending, could bankrupt Bayer

(Natural News) For the second time in a year, a jury has decided that the popular glyphosate weed killer Roundup caused a man’s cancer. The victory could inspire a flood of similar suits in addition to the thousands that Roundup manufacturer Monsanto is already facing, and the firm’s new owner, Bayer, could end up going bankrupt over it.

On Wednesday, the share price of Bayer dropped more than 13 percent following the unanimous decision. Investors were apparently spooked when a jury in a San Francisco federal court concluded that Roundup was a “substantial factor” in the development of Edwin Hardeman’s cancer.

According to his attorneys, the 70-year-old developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma as a result of using Roundup regularly over the course of 26 years to address weeds, overgrowth and poison oak on his property.

 

The next phase is now underway and will determine if Bayer is liable for the amateur gardener’s illness, and if so, how much money they will have to pay out. Hardeman’s attorneys will argue that Monsanto either knew or should have known that the product can cause cancer, and they will ask the jury to have the firm pay for his medical bills as well as damages.

 

A lawyer for Hardeman, Jennifer Moore, said: “We feel confident based on the evidence that a jury, when presented with all of the evidence, will see that Monsanto has committed 40 years of corporate malfeasance.”

Documents suggest Monsanto knew the dangers, colluded with regulators

Internal emails between federal regulators and Monsanto that have been publicly released as part of litigation suggest the firm authored its own research on glyphosate and then credited it to academics. It also showed how a senior EPA official tried to suppress a federal glyphosate study planned by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Yup. I had a first hand experience with Roundup. I pulled up and chewed on an arugula plant that had been inadvertently sprayed. It tasted funny and I spat it out but with hours the inside of my

mouth I’ll ulcerated.  It was extremely painful.
