An Australian farmer has launched a legal case against Bayer AG’s agricultural chemicals unit Monsanto after being diagnosed with a type of leukaemia, the Australian Broadcasting Commission reported on [October 10].

In June, Carbone Lawyers, acting for an Australian gardener, filed a lawsuit against Bayer for severe harm caused by a Roundup, the first such case in the country.

The lawsuit follows court rulings in the United States linking Roundup’s main ingredient, glyphosate, to cancer …. with more than 13,400 plaintiffs bringing claims over the herbicide’s alleged cancer risk.
