Oregon sues Monsanto over health risks

Oregon Live -Oregon sued the agricultural chemical giant Monsanto, alleging the company withheld information about the toxic effects of its products for decades, leading to widespread contamination across the state and health risks for humans, plants and animals. The lawsuit, filed by Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum in Multnomah County Circuit Court, seeks at least $100 million in damages and cites ongoing cleanup costs at the Portland Harbor Superfund site as one example of the tens of millions in public resources being spent in response to Monsanto's toxic products.
