'The Whole Truth' on Monsanto's Campaign to Discredit Scientists, Deceive Public

“The Whole Truth About the Monsanto Papers,” by Gilles-Eric Seralini and Jérôme Douzelet, details how Monsanto compromised scientific journals, academies, regulatory agencies, media and governments to deceive the public about the toxicity of Monsanto’s flagship herbicide, Roundup.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Below is the forward written by attorney Michael Baum to “The Whole Truth About the Monsanto Papers,” a book by scientist Gilles-Eric Seralini and Jérôme Douzelet. 

Baum, senior managing partner in the law firm Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman, served on the trial team for the first three Monsanto Roundup lawsuits to go before juries. 

“The Whole Truth About the Monsanto Papers,” available in French and English, details how Monsanto compromised scientific journals, academies, regulatory agencies, media and governments to deceive the public about the toxicity of the chemical maker’s flagship herbicide, Roundup.

In 2013, a couple of years before the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) analyzed Monsanto’s weed killer, glyphosate, and found it to be a probable human carcinogen, a technical chemical journal retracted an articleabout a group of rats fed Monsanto’s genetically modified corn and some of the company’s flagship herbicide, Roundup.
