Monsanto has launched a vicious attack against a cancer agency who warned the public about the dangers of herbicide Roundup.

According to documents by law firms in America, the agrochemical company tried to discredit the International Agency for Research Cancer (IARC) after they revealed that glyphosate was carcinogenic to humans. reports: A report in Sustainable Pulse informs how Monsanto had written and edited an ‘independent’ Expert Panel Manuscript in order to rebut the IARC’s findings regarding the potential carcinogenic effects of Roundup.

Monsanto Invalidates IACR

The documents also revealed how Monsanto went further than condemning the IARC about its decision over the weed killer glyphosate. The herbicide manufacturing giants attempted to “invalidate relevance of IACR”, in order to “prevent future bad IARC decisions on pesticides/GMOs.”

Claims have been made that Monsanto tried to manipulate decisions regarding pesticides by using political influence to pressure the World Health Organisation (WHO) to control the IARC.

The secret documents showed how Monsanto had planned a media attack with a Forbes contributor on the findings made by the IARC, prior to them being published. The damming papers also revealed how Monsanto paid members of the Expert Panel as consultants.

The secret Monsanto documents can be read on the Baum Hedlund Artistei Goldman website.

Covering Up Glyphosate Effects

A scandal involving Monsanto attempting to cover up glyphosate and PCS reared its head earlier this year. In May 2017, Dr. George Levinskas, was shown court documents that allegedly influenced the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in relation to the potential carcinogenic effect of glyphosate, the most used herbicide in the 1980s.

Following the IARC’s classification of glyphosate and Roundup as being “probably carcinogenic”, over 1,000 people have sued Monsanto, claiming loved ones had contracted a non-Hodgkin lymphoma due to exposure from Roundup.

Roundup is the world’s leading herbicide and makes Monsanto billions of dollars every year. Monsanto insists the chemical is safe, proven by decades of research and that the IARC’s classification that it could potentially cause cancer, is without merit

Anti-GMO advocates have long cited evidence from numerous scientific studies that Roundup is unsafe to humans and that, as Top Secret Writers reported in January 2016, “some of the most incriminating evidence has been obscured and hidden from the public.”
