So much of what Monsanto has worked to keep secret is coming out.
“The internal correspondence supports that Monsanto has long been aware of the risk that its glyphosate-based herbicides are carcinogenic… but has continuously sought to influence the scientific literature to prevent its internal concerns from reaching the public sphere.”
Heated debates over the safety – or lack thereof – of this popular pesticide have spanned the globe and sparked propaganda warfare with each side claiming the other has misrepresented the scientific record. Cancer victims allege Monsanto has “ghost” written research reviews, unduly influenced regulators and created front groups to falsely claim glyphosate safety. Monsanto, meanwhile, asserts multiple studies by international scientists are flawed and politically motivated, and says industry studies demonstrate the product is safe when used as intended.
