The recent verdict spells bad news for Bayer, which still faces more than 13,000 similar lawsuits alleging Roundup and other glyphosate-based herbicides caused cancer. Bayer shares fell 2% on the news, and have plummeted more than 45% this year, according to CNN Business.

What’s the problem?
As in its previous defeats, Bayer vows to fight the verdict, and maintains that Roundup is completely safe, and one of the most thoroughly tested chemicals in existence.
Prior to Monday’s verdict, the largest hit taken by Monsanto occurred following the trial of a former San Francisco groundskeeper by the name of Dwayne Johnson, who the jury awarded nearly $290 million (that number was later reduced to $78 million).
Although Bayer did see a bit of good news last month when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) declared that glyphosate is not carcinogenic, its best bet may be to settle the remainder of the litigation, else the company may never hear the end of claims over Roundup.
