ZEGO Uses Blockchain in $289 Million Monsanto Cancer Lawsuit to Test For Deadly Glyphosate Chemical
Blockchain Technology Used To Trace Deadly Chemical Linked $289 Million USD Monsanto Cancer Lawsuit
Zego, a food safety company, has started to use blockchain distributed ledger technology to test products for chemical residues. Recently, the company has decided to use the technology to trace residues of a deadly chemical tied a Monsanto lawsuit worth $289 million USD.
Earlier this month, Monsanto was fined in $289 million USD for damages that it caused because of the use of a herbicide that contained glyphosate, which can cause cancer. The court ruled against the company during the decision.
How Zego Food Safety Company is Using Blockchain
Zego is planning to use a new patent-pending blockchain system that will help companies all over the world to test food for glyphosate. According to the food safety company, this measure was important to help clients that were eager for new solutions.
Many people are now concerned about making informed choices about the presence of certain elements in their food and the company is ready to use this new blockchain technology to help them to get what they want and live healthier lives.
According to Zego, glyphosate can cause cancer in high doses, but the whole discussion ends up being completely academic when the customers are simply unaware of how much they are ingesting. Because of this, the company is interested in creating means for the people and the companies to measure these numbers and make them public.
The main advantage of the blockchain technology is that you can be completely sure that the companies will not be lying to you because the information will be stored on a public digital ledger that cannot be changed. This way, the customers will be able to verify for themselves if the companies have the certifications and regulate the food that they eat better.

The United Kingdom’s Food Standard Agency (FSA) has successfully completed its first tests with a blockchain technology that will be used as a regulatory tool to ensure law compliance in the food sector.
According to the organization, this technology can help to improve the food standards and to let the customers more aware of the quality of the food that they are ingesting.
