I get what you're saying, but conventional agriculture is under attack and all we need is the media to run away with this that round up causes cancer. No one will be happy until every farm is certified organic, vegan and gluten-free and sustainable with a carbon neutral emissions

Exactly, this is the defense of science and reason against the pricks that are trying to take us back to medieval times of witch burning and the plague.

Lol can you imagine farming going back 125 years! There would be a lot of starvation in the world and if your not going hungry 80% of your NET income would be going to your grocery bill !! Especially If the world wants more plant base protein

Money awarded is not the same as money rec'd. It will go to the supreme court, and they'll say it doesn't cause cancer. But until then, people and the media will be in frenzy. Saw a tweet from one of the scientists where the last judge expressly forbid Bayer from presenting evidence of the 45,000 pesticide applicators study and NHL that showed Gly doesn't cause cancer.


We live in an era of witch and loom burners once again.

Don't be surprised. This type of thing represents everything that is wrong with today's society. No common sense and everyone pays for it even if they don't realize it. Sure it's too bad this guy is sick but honestly there are 101 other factors that had more to do with it than glyphosate, like genetics or the water he drank every day. Nobody said life is fair and we aren't all entitled to live a "perfect" life trouble free, sometimes it's a struggle.

Sorry but the selfish greedy victim mentality really makes me mad...

How can you seriously have a fair trial where you're not even allowed to submit facts and data to defend yourself?

Ask ANY doctor if they can say, without any uncertainty, EXACTLY what caused any particular type of cancer.....
They can't....
so how can anyone say yes glyphosate, without a doubt, caused this [or any] cancer....
There is a lot about this whole thing about glyphosate that really pisssses me off.....
