German giant Bayer has lost a lawsuit in the United States against a ruling that the herbicide produced by Roundup causes cancer. On Monday, August 9, a San Francisco appeals court upheld a 2019 ruling in favor of a couple who claim they fell ill after using this herbicide for years. The court also upheld the judge’s decision to significantly reduce the amount of compensation awarded by the jury to Alpha and Alberta Billiod from $2 billion to $86.7 million.
It remains a new setback for the organization, which faces thousands of lawsuits in this country. Since the 2018 acquisition of US agrochemical company Monsanto, producer of Roundup, Bayer has faced a series of actions in the United States. Tuesday he said to himself “Respectfully, he does not agree with the court’s decision.” From San Francisco, which, he says, is not supported by any concrete evidence.
“We remain a strong advocate for the safety of Roundup, a position backed by four decades of in-depth scientific data.A spokesperson for the group said. Reviews from major health regulatory agencies around the world support its safe use.” However, glyphosate, the main component of a news report, has been classified as a “probable carcinogen” by the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization (WHO). Bayer explained that “Monsanto will consider its legal options in this case.”.
