THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK!

Monsanto, leading a self-serving gaggle of monitarly-motivated malevolent mercenaries, is suing California in an effort to jettison science and replace it with a more profitable kid glove treatment of its deadly herbicide, Glyphosate.
To review, Glyphosate is the chief ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, the world’s most commonly used herbicide. Over the past two decades, fully 80% of GE (genetically engineered) crops have been sprayed with deadly weed killer Glyphosate.
The scientific arm of the World Health Organization has determined Glyphosate to be a “likely human carcinogen.” This fact figured in prominently in California’s designation of Glyphosate as a carcinogen.
Alarmingly, studies show 93% of Americans have glyphosate in their bodies (https://livingmaxwell.com/93-percent-americans-glyphosate-u…). Even more worrisome is the fact that Glyphosate – at even the tiniest amounts (measured in parts per Billion) – delivers negative impacts on human health.
Monsanto and cronies legal efforts are designed to replace science with profit-making. No thanks, Monsanto, we’re not buying! Jim

“The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment made the decision in July.

“The agency said Wednesday it followed proper procedures in listing the herbicide and ‘stands by its decision.’

“California’s Proposition 65, a ballot initiative passed in 1986, requires the state to protect drinking water sources ‘from being contaminated with chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.’

“It also requires businesses to warn California users about their chemicals’ dangers…

“Monsanto sued the California agency in 2016 to block glyphosate’s potential listing. The case was dismissed in March, but the seed and chemical company is appealing the ruling.”
