Questionable Scientific Studies Used to Market Roundup

Monsanto mislabeled internal documents as academic to make its product appear safe

Monday, June 12, 2017 - For decades, a deadly herbicide, RoundUp Ready, first sold in the United States in 1974, has been the subject of controversy. Both the FDA and Department of Justice investigations into whether or not there is a link between the product and hundreds of incidents of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma by its users. In addition to international government investigations, Monsanto and the US Environmental protection agency has also been accused of falsifying studies by hiring unscrupulous scientists from universities and paying them hundreds of thousands of dollars to come to the conclusions that benefited Monsanto by keeping a lid on any cancer link.

Internationally, Monsanto has come under scrutiny in most countries in Europe. In 2015, France's International Agency for Research on Monsanto Cancer reclassified Roundup as a "probable carcinogen". The conclusions reached by the European Union that Roundup was safe to sell was based on scientific evidence written by Monsanto itself. A US court has obtained hundreds of emails from whistleblowers, that shows Monsanto wrote two reports on glyphosate mislabeled as "academic" giving the reports the appearance of scientific objectivity. An employee of Monsanto wrote the reports and attributed the findings to independent scientists. Also, a well-respected toxicologist is reported to have written in an email that "you cannot say Roundup does not cause cancer." Yet another email claims that company scientists redesigned studies to produce outcomes more favorable to the deadly herbicide. Studies that European government agencies relied upon when the chemical's license renewal came up for review were found to deliberately downplay the "deleterious health implications" of Roundup and although the piece was ghostwritten, it was signed by an independent toxicology expert to give the report the appearance of credibility.

About Roundup Ready

"Round Up Ready" is just another name fo a deadly herbicide that is used to kill weeds and as it turns out, humans as well. RoundUp Ready is sprayed on GMO crops such as potatoes, corn, and soybeans as well as many others that have been genetically engineered to be resistant to the herbicide. Other plants that are considered weeds are not.

The active ingredient in Round Up is glyphosate which was patented and has been in use by the Monsanto corporation since 1971 and now is the target of hundreds of lawsuits by people who have developed cancer or the estates of those who have died due to prolonged exposure to and from ingesting glyphosate. If you or a loved one have used or have com into contact with RoundUp ready repeatedly and have developed cancer you may be able to sue Monsanto as other have done for reimbursement of medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
