Monsanto dirty tricks…

Monday, July 10th, 2017

 

Monsanto the world leader in GMO seeds and other toxic concoctions seem to have a suspiciously close relationship with the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). This is a problem because headlines  like this can and do develop:

EPA Official Accused of Helping Monsanto ‘Kill’ Cancer Study: 

So it seems another case of a federal agent, though charged to oversee and regulate BigAg, has a questionably close relationship.

Check out this exchange : This last sentence is very telling, since it looks like Mr. Rowland might be making the jump to a cushy private sector job.

Dan Jenkins, a Monsanto executive, said in an email in 2015 that Mr. Rowland, referring to the other agency’s potential review, had told him, “If I can kill this, I should get a medal.” The review never took place. In another email, Mr. Jenkins noted to a colleague that Mr. Rowland was planning to retire and said he “could be useful as we move forward with ongoing glyphosate defense.”

One guess where that might be? Even worse:

“Rowland oversaw a committee that found insufficient evidence to conclude glyphosate causes cancer and quit last year shortly after his report was leaked to the press.”

Another reason why we support our local, pastured farmers. They don’t use the witches brew of Big AG. I don’t have to worry about getting toxic residue in my grass-fed raw milk ,meat and other foods.

 

Monsanto’s Round Up NOT tested for cancer in humans

Sunday, July 2nd, 2017

SO it seems that Monsanto had to admit in court depositions that they never tested glyphosate for it’s ability to cause cancer in humans. This is the active ingredient in Round Up. That seemed bad enough but their reason for not testing is even more telling. They were never required to by the EPA?

WHAT?!! Yes, true as it sounds.

Check out the deposition image below and this link for more info here: https://www.cancertutor.com/monsanto-roundup-cancer/

 Donna Farmer, Monsanto’s lead toxicologist,  admitted in her deposition that she “cannot say that Roundup does not cause cancer” because “[w]e [Monsanto] have not done the carcinogenicity studies with Roundup.”
