Acciones de Bayer caen en medio del escándalo de cáncer por Roundup

Graphic News

May 15, 2019 -- Veredictos adversos de jurados han eliminado más de 40% del valor de
mercado de Bayer desde agosto 2018, con ordenes de pago de daños al grupo farmacéutico alemán por sus herbicidas basados en glifosatos

A jury in California on Monday awarded more than $2bn to a couple who said the weedkiller Roundup was responsible for their cancer.

It is the third time that the German pharmaceutical group Bayer has been ordered to pay damages over its glyphosate-based herbicide.

Bayer, which acquired Roundup maker Monsanto for $63 billion last year, denies the allegations, saying decades of studies and regulatory approvals have shown glyphosate and Roundup to be safe for human use.

But the company faces similar U.S. lawsuits by more than 13,400 plaintiffs and shareholders have rebuked Bayer’s top management over its handling of the Monsanto acquisition and the litigation it inherited.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
