“A California jury just held Monsanto’s Roundup and Ranger Pro herbicides responsible for a groundskeeper’s lymphoma. The jury slapped the agricultural giant with a combined $289 million judgment — in compensatory and punitive damages — in a landmark suit against Monsanto.”
It appears that the lawyers for the plaintiff finally exposed the secret tactics of Monsanto to suppress and manipulate scientific research in a number of ways using the companies own internal communications. Needless to say: Monsanto will appeal and this debate is far from over.
This is a statement from Ken Cook, President of the Environmental Working Group:
“Monsanto made Roundup the oxycontin of pesticides and now the addiction and damage they caused have come home to roost.
This won’t cure DeWayne Lee Johnson’s cancer, but it will send a strong message to a renegade company.”
