(Natural News) Environmental attorney Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has filed the first of what he termed “several thousand”  lawsuits against agri-giant Monsanto, alleging that its widely-used herbicide Roundup causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Jurors in San Francisco heard hours of scientific data about the chemical’s link to the disease, which has a high survival rate after five years, but which can cause others to become terminally ill.

Terminal Cancer Patient Who Sued Monsanto Gets His Day in Court – July 3, 2018

Story at-a-glance

  • In 2015, the IARC classified glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen based on limited evidence showing it can cause Non-Hodgkin lymphoma and lung cancer in humans, and convincing evidence linking it to cancer in animals
  • Recent research by the respected Ramazzini Institute shows daily ingestion of glyphosate at the EPA’s acceptable daily dietary exposure level alters sexual development in rats, alters the intestinal microbiome, and has genotoxic effects
  • Recent tests by the U.S. National Toxicology Program reveal the Roundup formula is far more toxic than glyphosate alone, and is lethal to human cells
  • An estimated 4,000 individuals have filed lawsuits against Monsanto, claiming Roundup caused their Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The first cancer patient to get his day in court is Dewayne “Lee” Johnson, who used Roundup extensively in his work as a groundskeeper
  • Bayer seems to be betting on its ability to rehabilitate Monsanto’s products’ reputation simply by ditching the Monsanto name, but worldwide, the fight against Monsanto is now turning toward Bayer as its successor

Glyphosate Should Be Banned By EPA And The Law—It’s A Hormone Disruptor — Activist Post – May 17, 2018

By Catherine J. Frompovich More and more information is surfacing, almost daily, about adverse health effects regarding herbicides, pesticides and agricultural chemicals, specifically glyphosate, the prime active in Monsanto’s Roundup®. What consumers need to know is that most crops now are “staged” several days prior to harvest with glyphosate to have “uniformly desiccated” crop yields! …Read more

March Against Monsanto 2018 Global Protests – Be There This Weekend (May 19th) – May 17, 2018

March Against Monsanto 2018 Global Protests – Be There This Weekend

WORLDWIDE– Hundreds of thousands of concerned citizens will hit the streets May 19th, 2018 for the 7th international March Against Monsanto grassroots Campaign.

The global events will take place in hundreds of cities on six continents with the objective to further educate and raise awareness about Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds and the increasingly toxic food supply, as well as its merger with the German pesticide, GMO and pharmaceutical giant Bayer.

One of the focal points of this year’s March will be the Bayer merger, which was recently approved by U.S. antitrust regulators despite widespread concerns from civil organizations, family farmers, and environmental scientists. The merger is expected to create a new company that will control more than a quarter of the world’s seeds and pesticides, consolidating unprecedented power over our food system into the hands of one foreign-based multi-national corporation.

 

A recent poll conducted by two former attorneys from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Antitrust Divison found that over 93% of farmers are concerned about the Monsanto-Bayer merger, and over 82% are “very concerned.” Their top three concerns are increased market dominance to push additional products, excessive control over farmers’ data, and increased pressure to become reliant on chemical based farming practices.

Another focus of this year’s March will be on glyphosate, the controversial active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup that was declared a “probable human carcinogen” by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2015. After months of legal battles, the state of California recently won the right to force Monsanto to place a cancer warning label on its products, in accordance with the IARC’s previous ruling. Yet this herbicide is still being sprayed in massive amounts and has been detected in air and rain samples, the breast milk of nursing mothers, childhood vaccines, prenatal vitamins, and baby formula, even as over 2,400 cancer related lawsuits have been filed against the St. Louis, Missouri based company.

Glyphosate use has increased 16-fold since the mid-1990s according to U.S. Geological Survey Data.

“Monsanto’s glyphosate has contaminated every facet of our lives. The cancer-causing herbicide has been detected in the air we breathe and many of the organic foods we eat. Our children are directly targeted as is evidenced by the discovery of glyphosate in vaccines, breast milk, and baby formulas. We must rise up and stop this toxic nightmare or we will see generations of overwhelming sickness and premature death like never before,” said Tami Canal, the founder of March Against Monsanto.

In addition to pesticides and the Bayer merger, the March will also focus on Monsanto’s recent $125 million investment in CRISPR, the controversial genetic modification technique that allows scientists to “play God” by editing our favorite food crops quicker and easier in the lab than ever before.

Because of this new technology, several novel foods are being created including a genetically engineered apple that doesn’t turn brown, genetically engineered potatoes, and more. Some worry that CRISPR GMO foods may become the new standard on grocery store shelves.

In keeping with past protocol, these foods won’t be labeled, and haven’t been independently studied for their long-term health effects on humans.

March Against Monsanto rallies will occur May 19th with the first protests happening in New Zealand and Australia to kick off the global events. Extensive protesting will happen across the world and related online coverage can be found on social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram by using the hashtags #marchMay19 and #MarchAgainstMonsanto (#MAM).
