Workers receive compensation fourteen years on

After fourteen years 14,000 sick banana workers from Costa Rica have finally received compensation for physical and psychological damage that they suffered after being exposed to the banned crop protection agent Nemagon during the years 1967 to 1979, reports the German website Fruchtnews.de.

It has been proven that Nemagon can cause health issues such as infertility, cancer, miscarriages and genetic malformations. In 1979 Costa Rica banned the import of Nemagon.
