New court documents reveal EPA to be Monsanto’s prostitute… one more reason to shut down the Environmental “Pollution” Agency

A probe is currently underway to determine just how cozy the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is with world’s most evil corporation, Monsanto. And thus far, it is becoming more than apparent that the EPA functions as little more than a pimp for the biotechnology industry, routinely approving chemicals like Roundup (glyphosate) without proper safety assessments.

As part of a series of lawsuits recently filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, lawyers for plaintiffs claiming that Roundup caused them to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) have demanded to see the details of the EPA’s safety assessments for Roundup, to which they have received little information. So far, Monsanto has turned over documents marked “confidential” that reveal nothing about the agro-chemical giant’s relationship with the EPA.

According to reports, the EPA has been assessing the safety of glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, ever since the controversial chemical started gaining attention around the world as a serious threat to environmental and human health. On the surface, the EPA has supposedly been conducting an independent analysis of glyphosate’s safety in the interest of public health.

But it is now being revealed that the EPA has merely been acting as a gatekeeper to approve whatever Monsanto throws its way, including chemicals like glyphosate that have repeatedly been linked to causing organ damage, cancer tumors, and more. Much of the rest of the world, including the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), is recognizing that glyphosate is dangerous and never should have been approved in the first place, but the EPA has been dragging its feet on the issue. Essentially, the EPA is engaged in fake science to obscure the evidence that glyphosate causes harm to humans and the environment.

This is largely because former EPA top brass Jess Rowland has been fighting on behalf of Monsanto, rather than on behalf of the people for whom the EPA works — the American public — to salvage glyphosate’s dwindling reputation. The EPA has further been working on behalf of Monsanto in lawsuits like the one currently moving forward in California, much to the chagrin of independent scientists who recognize how corrupt the EPA has become on this front.
