ABC News (Australia), documentary: The secret tactics Monsanto used to protect Roundup, its star product
I don’t think you can evaluate the arguments surrounding Bayer-Monsanto’s Roundup (glyphosate) and cancer,
WITHOUT more than a passing understanding of
This documentary addresses both, with actual interviews. Rare.
- The question of crossing the line with political contributions, you’ll see CropLife America and CropLife Australia officials.
- You might like this bit of background from the horse’s mouth (IARC), before watching the video:
2015-03 What is IARC? IARC 2015 “classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans” . . . and “strong” evidence for genotoxicity.
TIMELINE of the documentary:
August 2018 – The jury award in the first Bayer-Monsanto trial, plaintiff Dewayne Johnson, was announced. Part of the documentary was filmed in the U.S. Johnson’s cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, is terminal. There’s footage of the “lesions” on his body that are symptomatic.
Oct, 2018 – This documentary from Australia was released.
By May 2019 – we have the results of two more trials against Bayer-Monsanto, guilty. “The Monsanto Papers” are documents supplied to the Courts in 3 different trials, through the “discovery” pre-trial process. Monsanto itself provides the evidence to incriminate itself – – severely.
Through Question and Answer interviews in the documentary, to me
- There are numerous responses of the Monsanto Executive that amount to self-crucifiction. The industry has been able to get away with its tactics, but no longer. Too many people know too much by now.
- The interviews of regulators and CropLife are the same; they come out badly, too.
But judge for yourself, maybe you disagree?
