Bayer AG is a pharmaceutical company. As a major player in 4 controversial sectors (Healthcare (pharmaceuticals), Agriculture (seeds and agro-chemicals), Polymers (plastics, synthetic rubber, coatings) and Chemicals (chemical raw materials and specialized chemicals)) for over 125 years Bayer has a distinguished history of corporate crimes ranging from the manufacture and sale of controversial drugs (Heroin, Ciproxin and Baycol), the development of chemical warfare agents and poisons (Chlorine Gas, Zyklon B and VX), the use of forced labour during WW2, and numerous cases of poisoning, side-effects and environmental pollution connected to its chemical and pharmaceutical products.
In 2003, thousands of hemophiliacs filed a class-action lawsuit Monday against Bayer and several other companies, claiming they knowingly sold blood contaminated with HIV and hepatitis C. 
In August 2019, Bayer was reported to be seeking to settle all 18,000 cancer lawsuits relating to Glyphosate in the US for $8 billion.
