I did a google search on “Monsanto Papers”.    I have never seen so many articles come up that are in French.   Comparatively few in English. 

Nothing from Canadian English sources, at least not in the first few pages of search results.   NY Times article (U.S.), March 14th comes up on page 1 of listings. 

Very troubling that there’s nothing on the “Monsanto Papers” in English language Canadian mainstream media.   Or if there is, it’s so far down I didn’t encounter it.

This is a serious public issue.   Unless you don’t mind the cancers that surround us.

re Monsanto,  with thanks to U.S. Right to Know.


June 2:   59 lawsuits against Monsanto Co. are pending in U.S. District Court in San Francisco . . 

June 1:    Documents obtained by USRTK offer a rare look into the secrets of food and chemical corporations

Since 2015, U.S. Right to Know, a nonprofit consumer and public health watchdog group, has obtained thousands of pages of documents revealing – for the first time – hidden industry payments and secret collaborations that undermine our nation’s scientific, academic, political and regulatory institutions.

The USRTK investigations have unearthed important documents about Monsanto and the agrichemical industry and Coca-Cola and the beverage industry — along with the PR operatives, front groups and third-party allies that assist these industries. Together, these documents demonstrate the strategies and tactics these organizations employ to maximize industry profits at the expense of public health.

Here are some of key findings and articles from the USRTK investigations so far.

Undisclosed collaborations between academics and the agrichemical industry:

Corporate influence on journalists, science and regulatory institutions:

Breaking news about chemicals in our food:

This fall, Island Press will publish Carey Gillam’s book on glyphosate, titled Whitewash: The Story of a Weed Killer, Cancer and the Corruption of Science.

USRTK is also posting the “Monsanto Papers on our website, including court documents, news and analysis of the litigation against Monsanto by people alleging that exposure to Roundup herbicide caused them or their loved ones to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Third-party messengers and front groups the food and chemical industries rely on for propaganda and lobbying:
