With each new published study, independently conducted and peer-reviewed, alerting us that glyphosate is more toxic than we thought, poses a more serious health threat than was previously believed, the reaction is the same.
Monsanto denies the facts, attacks the scientists and directs the media and the public to its own industry-funded studies as “proof” that glyphosate (and Roundup) are perfectly safe.
After decades of this back-and-forth, and decades of government regulatory agencies siding with Monsanto, instead of independent scientists and the public, we’re still at a stalemate.
That could change, according to the author of this week’s essay—if could be proven in a court of law that Monsanto has known for decades that glyphosate is one of the most toxic substances ever launched on the public.
It could happen.
