New York Times: $700 Million Settlement in Alabama PCB Lawsuit
In 2012, Monsanto settled a lawsuit with tens of thousands of plaintiffs in West Virginia for $93 million. Residents of Nitro, West Virginia claimed they had been poisoned by decades of contamination from cancer-causing chemicals used in the manufacturing of Agent Orange produced in a Monsanto plant.

In March 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), an arm of the World Health Organization, concluded in a study that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's widely used weed-killing product Roundup, was "probably carcinogenic to humans."
Shortly after the IARC's study was made public, France took steps to limit the sale of Roundup. France has also banned the cultivation of genetically modified crops.
In September 2015, a French appeals court in Lyon upheld a decision that held Monsanto liable for poisoning a French farmer. The grain farmer, Paul Francois, developed neurological damage after inhaling Monsanto's weedkilling product Lasso.
In September 2015, two U.S. farm workers filed suit against Monsanto claiming that exposure to Roundup caused them to develop cancer.
You can find reports of Monsanto products being linked to cancer and other health issues all over the world, for example:
Argentina is the world's third largest soy-producing country.
According to Mother Jones, nearly 100 percent of the soy crop is genetically altered and Monsanto's Roundup is very widely used. As the use of pesticides and herbicides in Argentina has increased, cancer clusters have begun to develop around farming communities. A 2010 study at the University of Buenos Aires also found that injecting glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup) into chicken and frog embryos caused the same sort of spinal defects that doctors have found to be increasingly prevalent in communities where farm chemicals are used.
