Roundup™ Weedkiller is Killing Bayer
Monday’s jury verdict was the third strike against Bayer since their 2018 acquisition of Monsanto, the makers of the cancer-causing Roundup™ weedkiller.
$2.055 billion was awarded to a California couple who blame Roundup™ for the cause of their cancer. This verdict was the largest sum that Bayer has faced to-date in relation to the backlash from their Roundup™ product.
The previous two Roundup™ trial losses have cost Bayer more than 45% of its share price in the last year alone. Their $63 billion merger with Monsanto was originally intended to boost Bayer’s failing fortunes, but has consequently become its biggest liability.
WARNING — Roundup™ Still Being Sold in Stores
More cases of cancer caused by Roundup™ are sure to arise due to the fact that the dangerous product is still being sold to farmers and consumers across the nation. Even worse, not only is the product for sale in your local home and hardware store, but it comes with no carcinogen warning label whatsoever. With a potentially indefinite number of new injury lawsuits on the horizon, a timely settlement is unlikely. In a statement, Bayer said that the litigation “will take some time before it concludes.”
According to a World Health Organization, glyphosate (the primary ingredient in Roundup™) is likely to cause cancer in humans. Scientific studies on cells, rodents, and human populations have confirmed this claim.
Even if you have not had direct exposure to Roundup™, no one is without risk. The presence of the carcinogen glyphosate is so prevalent in our environment that even trace amounts could be harmful.
