Monsanto ordered to pay $2bn to couple in new Roundup trial


One of the trends for this year is Monsanto losing tremendously in court.  Earlier this week, Monsanto lost a case in which they have been ordered by the court to pay a California couple two billion dollars because they both were diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma after using the weed killer RoundUp in their garden for over 30 years.

Monsanto is the manufacturer of RoundUp, the most-used weed killer in the world.  However, the chemcials used in RoundUp have been clinically proven to cause cancer if used over a long period of time.  Monsanto will be taking more losses this year as there are over 13,000 cases against them ongoing in the US court system at this time.
