Terminally Ill Man Awarded A Whopping $289 Million In Lawsuit Against Weedkiller Company

11

A terminally ill man has been awarded $289 million in the first cancer-related trial against agricultural giant Monsanto.

Dewyane Johnson, 46, claimed in the lawsuit that his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma was caused by his use of Roundup weedkiller and one other Monsanto product during his work as a school groundskeeper.

The jury in a San Francisco Superior Court on Friday unanimously ordered the company to award Johnson $250 million in punitive damages and $39 million in compensatory damages, according to the Associated Press.

    • Of course, it goes without saying that even the largest amount of money can never even begin to compare with the extreme importance of a person’s health. However here, Lo Alaynu, this person’s health has ALREADY been virtually totally removed from him, so compensation must be given to him. Furthermore, the situation of the virtual total removal of his health is MONETARILY costing him countless millions of dollars — in endless expensive charges for constant intensive medical care and complete loss of income with being so horrifically incapacitated. So it is only right — it is only basic human decency — that the severely wicked people who caused him this horrendous continual loss of $$$$ should be forced to shell out every penny of that $$$$ to go back to him. This is what our Torah HaKdosha teaches us: It is mentioned in Sefer Shemos in Parshas Mishpatim and is elaborated on in detail in the Talmud in Mesecta Baba Kama and in the Shulchan Aruch in the Chelek of Choshen Mishpat, that the person who causes damages has to fully pay for the monetary losses that are incurred.

  1. Regarding the legal decision of this lawsuit that the court has hit Monsanto with this whopping two-hundred-and-eighty-nine-million-dollar charge, we must all emphatically shout a big hearty:

    M A Z A L * T O V ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    See the more detailed write-up of the story at https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-08-11-monsanto-hit-with-290-million-cancer-liability-ruling-in-roundup-glyphosate-herbicide-trial.html wherein it is related that the administrative people at the Monsanto company WELL KNEW that their weedkiller “Roundup” ACTUALLY WAS an excessively dangerous product. Yet they deliberately chose to heavily advertise and promote it to the public and falsely declare it as being absolutely safe and effective.

Yet they deliberately chose to heavily advertise and promote and market it to the public and falsely declare it as being absolutely safe and effective. Well now that the court declared that the near total ruination of Dewyane Johnson’s life cannot be ignored and thus told Monsanto that THEY must pay for it — a whopping two-hundred-and-eighty-nine-million-dollars for it — it is glaringly clear that this Roundup thingy is NOT so “safe” like they said it was! In the link here to the fuller article at “The Hill,” there is noted that, after this one, there are THOUSANDS MORE Roundup-causing-Yenem-Machla-lawsuits waiting in the docket! That is thousands more exclamation points openly declaring: “NO!” “ROUNDUP IS NOT SAFE!”

  3. This is the same poison that’s being sprayed on food crops that wind up on your plate, along with the GMO fruits and vegetables designed to withstand more of the poison sprays that put $billions into the bank accounts of Monsanto, now owned by none other than the infamous Bayer.

    Quoting from a widely circulated article, “Monsanto-Bayer = A Match Made in Hell:”
    “….As the U.S. tries to shut down chemical weapon manufacture in Syria, the country harbors its own chemical weapons facilities, an evil named Monsanto. It was Monsanto that manufactured Agent Orange, which was used on three million U.S. soldiers in Vietnam and on countless Vietnamese, inhumanely causing nervous system and genetic damage. A staggering 500,000 children were born with birth defects and an additional million people suffered health problems or disabilities due to Monsanto’s Agent Orange. It’s only fitting that Monsanto merges with Bayer, a company that manufactured and sold the chemicals that were used to kill Jews in Nazi Germany. Bayer, along with BASF and Hoechst, originally merged as IG Farben and contributed heavily to Adolf Hitler. In return, Hitler relied on the chemical manufacturers to create Zyklon B, a chemical weapon used in Auschwitz and other concentration camps to exterminate the Jews who were too old, too small, or too weak to work.”

    One of the Nazi murderers who served prison time went to work for Monsanto after he was released from prison.

      • MR. “CONCERNED” IS NOT EXTREME AT ALL!! ON THE CONTRARY, HE SAID EXACTLY WHAT DESPERATELY NEEDS TO BE SAID!! PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE HORRIFIC OUTRIGHT SINISTER EVIL THAT IS IN MONSANTO, BAYER, GENETIC ENGINEERING (GMO’s), AGENT ORANGE, ROUNDUP, AND ALL OF THE MODERN SYNTHETIC INSECTICIDES AND OTHER PESTICIDES, YIMACH SHEMAM V’ZICHRAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. The 2008 documentary film, “Food, Inc.,” (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food,_Inc.) relates how the Monsanto company acts like they feel like they are the “owners” and the “rulers” of much of the modern agriculture realm. As they formulated the new genetic engineering changes in the DNA of the plants of a number of the world’s key food crops (especially corn and soybeans), that means that they have the LEGAL PATENTS on the newly genetically engineered plants. This is something that, previously, had NEVER existed in human history!
    The plant world Hashem gives to ALL people, and thus each person, on his plot of land, could plant whatever plants he wanted. But now, Monsanto has restructured the DNA of (for example) soybeans, so they now have the legal patent on this new soybean plant — they now “own” the soybean plant! This is literally bewildering – it is Mabul Al HaRaiyon!!

    So now, if — on his own land — a farmer wants to plant soybeans, he CANNOT just plant any soybean seeds; he cannot plant the seeds he had from the previous year’s crop! That would be the “crime” of “infringement” on the “rights” of Monsanto’s holy patent! IF he were to attempt this, if he were to even attempt to save the seeds he had from last year’s crop — Monsanto has a whole team of law enforcement officers. They will come to his house, even in the middle of the night, and they will “warn” him; he will be hit with legal actions that will quickly suck out every last dollar he had ever saved, and the judges will always side with Monsanto.

    So here, that the judges DID NOT side with Monsanto, and instead, with the $289 million verdict, gave the holy, holy, holy Monsanto a good smack in the face, we must all emphatically shout a big hearty:

    M A Z A L * T O V ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! B O R U C H * H A S H E M ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    Finally, finally, finally, there is a tiny bit of justice being done in the world!!

    And, of course, especially now before Rosh HaShanna, we must be Mispallel for Be’as HaMoshiach and the Geula Sheleima, when Monsanto, and all of the other hyper Reshaim will be gone!
