The Monsanto-Bayer Protection Agency is at it again. This time, your taxpayer-funded regulatory agency is teaming up with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to defend Roundup weedkiller.
The Wall Street Journal reported on December 20, 2019, that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “working with” the DOJ, filed court papers in support of Bayer’s attempt to reverse a California jury’s award of $25 million to cancer victim, Edwin Hardeman.
The EPA’s determination to protect Monsanto profits to the detriment of human and ecosystem health defies any reasonable explanation.
In fact, the more the evidence against glyphosate piles up, the more the EPA digs in its heels.
In December alone, GM Watch reported these new facts:
GMO-based agriculture with its intensive use of pesticides has had a devastating impact on Argentina’s amphibian populations.
France’s national health agency, ANES, is so concerned about the health hazards of glyphosate, that the agency has withdrawn 36 glyphosate products.
When will Roundup and other poisons like it be banned for good?
When enough of us raise hell, and hold our politicians accountable—or vote them out.
