While farmers and children exposed to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide were dying from non-Hodgkins lymphoma, a high-level EPA official was colluding with Monsanto behind the scenes to bury the truth.
And he actually bragged about it.
According to the New York Times and other news outlets, newly unsealed court documents reveal that former EPA official Jess Rowland let Monsanto ghostwriters write the toxicology reports that would form the basis for a government investigation into whether or not Roundup causes cancer.
“If I can kill this I should get a medal,” Rowland reportedly told a Monsanto executive, who relayed the comment in an email.
More than 700 Roundup cancer claims have now been filed in state and federal courts on behalf of people, including farmers and children, who have non-Hodgkins lymphoma (or who have already died from the disease) because they were exposed to Roundup.
It's unconscionable that EPA officials would hide the fact that Roundup, sold widely in retail stores and labeled as “safe,” causes cancer.
Consumers deserve the truth. That’s why we're calling on Congress to launch an official investigation into the possibility that EPA officials colluded with Monsanto.
