    Monsanto glyphosate weed killer could cost Bayer billions in damage lawsuits

    Bayer said the number of outstanding cases had risen from 5,200 to 8,000. The company's shares are down 11% since it lost the case in a California court

    United States agro-chemicals company Monsanto is facing a surge in lawsuits that may cost its new owners, Bayer, billions in damages. Monsanto manufactures glyphosate-based weed killers which some believe are carcinogenic. Last month it lost a US$ 289m court case that alleged its products Roundup and RangerPro had led to a Californian man's terminal cancer.
