ROUNDUP In Wine: Toxic Chemical Glyphosate Found In 100% Of California Wines Tested

It seems Monsanto’s toxic chemical glyphosate has now found its way into wine. It isn’t surprising, however, seeing as how grapes are pesticide and herbicide-laden.

Johnson's case was the first to go to trial because doctors said he was near death. And in California, dying plaintiffs can be granted expedited trials. Doctors weren't sure Johnson would live long enough to see his trial. "He's going to live the rest of that time in extreme comfort," Litzenburg said.
