“The people who are supposed to protect us from dangerous pesticides have failed to do their jobs.”
Green groups and public health advocates on Monday denounced the European Commission’s vote in favor of extending the license of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup pesticide which scientists have labeled as a “likely carcinogen.”
Lee opens by revealing the government sanctioned poison pusher, Monsanto’s backdoor deals. Cancer causing pesticides like Roundup were widely used, despite science to prove otherwise, but the company made a concerted effort to get scientists, the media, and the government, on their side by filling their pockets or intimidating them. Monsanto also has unholy partnerships with universities which taints scientific research even further. But they did such a good job of hiding this that only few media organizations could actually see through the fine print. This and more on Redacted Tonight.
A new report by the toxicologist Dr Peter Clausing shows that the EU authorities violated their own rules and disregarded evidence that glyphosate is carcinogenic to reach a conclusion that the chemical does not cause cancer.
Without much more than a whisper from the mainstream media, Monsanto’s newest Frankenfood has received full EPA approval and will be arriving on dinner plates by the end of the decade. The implications of this are harrowing, to say the least.
