Historic Monsanto Court Ruling

Historic Ruling: Monsanto Ordered to Pay $289m in Damages to Terminally Ill Cancer Patient

Friday, August 10, 2015

Jurors in a San Francisco court case award $289 million in damages to a terminally ill cancer patient Dewayne Johnson, who was covered in lesions. Lawyers said he got cancer from Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller, which he was regularly exposed to in his job as a school groundskeeper.

Published early online in CANCER, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society, the findings may help to reduce the burden of cancer by allowing officials to identify vulnerable communities in need of attention…

…’Our study is the first we are aware of to address the impact of cumulative environmental exposures on cancer incidence,’ said Dr. Jagai. ‘This work helps support the idea that all of the exposures we experience affect our health, and underscores the potential for social and environmental improvements to positively impact health outcomes.’…”

Little Things Matter

Wondering what the little person in our logo with dots all over their body represents? Body burden. Certainly your body has self-cleansing mechanisms, but if you expose yourself to more toxins than your body can eliminate, they will accumulate. The greater the accumulation or body burden, the greater the stresses on your health.
