U.S. Right to Know recently reported that even though 39 percent of all Americans will one day be diagnosed with cancer, resulting in hundreds of thousands of deaths, government representatives are going out of their way to protect the manufacturers of a known cancer-causer: The glyphosate produced by agri-giant Monsanto.
When the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer labeled glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans” back in 2015, the first real crack appeared in Monsanto’s carefully constructed narrative that its billion-dollar product is harmless, and that farmers should continue dousing their fields with this toxic herbicide. (Related: EPA hid truth about glyphosate and cancer for decades to protect Monsanto’s corporate profits.)
The IARC also found that there was “limited evidence of carcinogenicity in humans for non-Hodgkin lymphoma,” as well as “convincing evidence that glyphosate also can cause cancer in laboratory animals.” (Related: Learn more about the science linking glyphosate and cancer at Glyphosate.news.)
Monsanto was immediately assaulted with a slew of lawsuits from farmers and others claiming to have developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma as a result of exposure to glyphosate, which is the primary ingredient in the company’s Roundup product.
Of course, Monsanto should never be underestimated. The people who run the “world’s most evil corporation” are master tacticians, and they had a plan for dealing with this situation even before the IARC released its report.
