$289 MILLION DOLLAR JUDGEMENT AGAINST MONSANTO

On Friday, San Francisco jurors ruled that that Bayer/Monsanto’s “Roundup” (the most popular weedkiller in the world) was responsible for causing a former school groundskeeper to develop terminal cancer.  So they awarded him $289 million in damages — mostly to punish the agricultural company Monsanto.
Dewayne Johnson’s victory Friday could set a massive precedent for thousands of other cases claiming Roundup causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Under California law, patients who are deemed to be dying can be granted expedited trials… thus Johnson’s case was the first to go to trial.

This weekend, the Dougherty Report and Food Nation Radio highlight just a few of the many interviews we’re conducted over the years about Roundup’s effect on the environment and the human body.

About Michael Serio

Being on-air wasn't Michael Serio's passion, at least initially, but rather he was happy serving in a off-air capacity as a radio gypsy. Fast forward nearly forty years (through a lot of call letters and formats) now it's difficult to get this producer-turned host to be quiet especially when it comes to food and politics, Blame it on Elizabeth Dougherty. Michael heard Ms. Dougherty as a guest on another show talking about food, and reached out to her about hosting her own show. Turns out, Elizabeth had dreamed of hosting her own show for years so it was inevitable that these two should meet and work together. Michael gave her the technical platform to talk, and Elizabeth demanded that he keep up with her. Michael and Elizabeth married in 2013 and through hard work and perseverance, both "The Dougherty Report" and "Food Nation Radio" have been heard on radio stations across the country and reaching listeners around the world.
