Lawyers for Johnson claim that Monsanto was aware of the dangers of its product, but covered it up through a campaign of misinformation and attacks on studies that revealed the danger. Johnson’s case was the first to directly connect Roundup with deadly cancer. Bayer, which acquired Roundup, faces about 8,000 more lawsuits.
Desiccants kill more than plants. Herbicides like glyphosate also kill bacteria, and can act like “antibiotics.” Human gut bacteria are sensitive to antibiotics, which is why we should avoid eating herbicides. When microbes are disturbed, diseases like obesity, Alzheimer’s, or celiac disease can result. Choose organic instead.
