Story at-a-glance -

  • March 19, 2019, a U.S. jury ruled Roundup was a substantial causative factor in the Non-Hodgkin lymphoma of Edwin Hardeman. In the second liability phase of the trial, jurors will decide whether Bayer/Monsanto acted with negligence and should pay damages
  • Bayer stock plummeted by 12.5 percent, the largest intraday loss in 16 years, wiping out a cool $9.1 billion of the company’s value; since August 2018, Bayer’s shares have fallen by more than a third, wiping out about $28.2 billion of the company’s market value
  • Glyphosate and glyphosate-based weed killer formulations have been linked to Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, impaired protein production, mineral chelation, disrupted sulfate synthesis, microbiome disruption and more
  • Recent research found that among children born of women with high exposure to glyphosate during pregnancy the rate of autism spectrum disorder with intellectual disability was 30 percent higher than among those born of mothers who lived further from highly-sprayed areas
  • Scientists also warn glyphosate-based herbicides may be harming wildlife and insects at the bottom of the food chain. Glyphosate has also been identified as a driver of antibiotic resistance

August 10, 2018, a jury ruled in favor of plaintiff Dewayne Johnson in a truly historic case against Monsanto (now owned by Bayer AG). Johnson — the first of several thousand pending legal cases — claimed Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup caused his Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Forty-six-year-old Johnson sprayed about 150 gallons of Roundup 20 to 40 times per year while working as a groundskeeper for the Benicia school district in California, from 2012 through late 2015. His lawsuit, filed in 2016 after he became too ill to work, accused Monsanto of hiding the health hazards of Roundup.
