Monsanto loses appeal in French farmer's poisoning case

Source: AFP

A French court on Thursday upheld a guilty verdict against chemicals giant Monsanto over the poisoning of a farmer who suffered neurological damage after using one of its weedkillers, the latest legal setback for the company over its controversial pesticides.

Cereal farmer Paul François has been fighting Monsanto, a formerly US company which was bought by Germany's Bayer last year, for the past 12 years.

In the first ruling of its kind against Monsanto anywhere in the world, a French court in 2012 found it guilty of poisoning François.

François said he hopes French President Emmanuel Macron takes note of today's ruling.

"Macron had said that he would seek a different agriculture, without glyphosate."

"But he has not done so, so now we know who he is riding with: he rolls for Bayer."

7. It's not even American anymore

It's owned by Bayer, which is German.

5. Great news. Hope they will not try to appeal again. At least the man's legal bills are resolved.

He paid a terrible price in struggles with his health, already.

Paul François must prevail, no matter what the blood-thirsty predators decide to do about appealing once more.

Thank you, sandensea.

8. We have Roundup commercials every day plastered on TV.

 

I have been eating organic and home grown for a long time. Organic doesn't guarantee my food isn't poisoned but my chances are better.

Organic food tastes better too. When your food never spoils you know it is full of chemicals. When I get a potato out of my fridge and see eyes growing out of it I smile because I know it is organic.
