Monsanto’s atrocious acts were bound to catch up with them some time — and it is beginning to look like that time has finally come. Recently revealed documents prove that Monsanto knowingly sold banned toxic chemicals for years after confirming their catastrophic risks to the environment and human health. Bill Sherman, the assistant attorney general for Washington state, reviewed documents from The Poison Papers, uncovering yet another one of Monsanto’s wicked schemes of mass deception.

PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, are highly toxic compounds known to cause a litany of health problems — and they’re prone to persisting and accumulating in the environment long-term. And even when Monsanto learned of these glaring issues, they continued to produce and sell toxic PCB products. Now Assistant Attorney General Sherman is looking to hold them accountable. Sherman is quoted as saying that the Poison Papers have provided previously unknown “damning evidence” of the company’s wrongdoing. The state of Washington is now suing Monsanto, along with several cities from along the Pacific coast.

The PCB Deception

Monsanto first began mass-producing PCBs in 1935. The chemicals were used for a variety of industrial uses, including as coolants and lubricants for heavy equipment, like transformers. The company reportedly stopped producing PCBs on their own in 1977 — two years ahead of national bans by the U.S. and other countries. In 1979, PCBs were widely banned due to overwhelming evidence of harm to both humans and the environment.

Now, Sherman’s digging has revealed a sordid truth: Monsanto had confirmed the toxic effects of PCBs in 1969. A pollution abatement plan from the company’s archive describes the hazards of PCBs as virtually unquestionable.

The archived document’s section on “damage to the ecological system by contamination from PCBs,” declares:

“The evidence proving the persistence of these compounds and their universal presence in the environment is beyond questioning.”
