Update: Bayer’s Shares Plummet Following Consecutive Roundup Trial Losses
March 22, 2019 – Shares of Bayer AG dropped over 12% on Wednesday after a jury in federal court in San Francisco ruled for the second time that its Roundup weed killer caused cancer. It was the pharmaceutical giant’s biggest 1-day loss in 16 years, according to Reuters.
What is Roundup Ultra?
Manufactured by Monsanto, Roundup Ultra is a highly potent herbicide like the original Roundup, except that it attacks living plants rather than seeds. The glyphosate in Roundup Ultra is absorbed by leaves and moves throughout the entire plant to destroy annual and perennial weeds, including grasses. Roundup Ultra is intended to be used on big jobs such as lawn renovation, vegetable and flower bed preparation.
What’s the problem?
The World Health Organization (WHO) in March 2015 issued a final health assessment of glyphosate, determining that the chemical is ”probably carcinogenic to humans” after it was linked to various forms of non-Hodgkin lymphoma including lymphocytic lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, B-cell lymphoma, hairy cell leukemia, and others.

Experts Divided on Roundup Cancer Risk
March 14, 2019 – With more than 11,000 lawsuits on the books alleging that Monsanto Roundup caused non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and Monsanto’s steadfast denial of these claims, the question remains – how dangerous is the herbicide, and should its legal status be changed? Glyphosate has long been considered by many to be completely safe because it works by inhibiting an enzyme pathway that only exists in green plants, not in humans or other animals. However, over the past 20 years, numerous studies have suggested that glyphosate man not be as safe as originally believed.
