Fifty recently filed lawsuits allege Monsanto and related companies are responsible for causing cancer.
Each of the complaints, filed Aug. 3 in Putnam Circuit Court, say Monsanto and its successor companies caused cancer by exposing the plaintiffs to dioxins/furans contamination of the air and property in and around Nitro. The cases mention the "negligent and otherwise unlawful release of dioxin from defendants' waste disposal practices on properties ... located in and about Nitro, West Virginia."
They were releasing dioxins?!?!? Are they out of their minds over there?!? We have areas here in Hawaii still contaminated with dioxin from the Vietnam-era the Agent Orange tests.
