No time to plow through the Monsanto Papers? No worries. Now you can watch the movie.
"The Monsanto Papers," a documentary produced by ABC News in Australia, reveals the secret tactics Monsanto (now owned by Bayer AG) used to hide the toxic truth about its flagship product—Roundup weedkiller.
The Monsanto Papers consist of millions of pages of internal corporate documents and communications that piece together how Monsanto colluded with U.S. regulatory agencies to conceal studies linking glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, to non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).
The documents came to light during the landmark case of Dewayne Johnson v. Monsanto. Johnson is a former school groundskeeper who developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma after routinely spraying school properties with Roundup. His was the first of now 9,000 similar cases pending against Bayer-Monsanto.
