Recent Monsanto Roundup Lawsuit Targets Alleged Marketing Violations

Recent Monsanto Roundup Lawsuit Targets Alleged Marketing Violations

 

“Existing data, while not systematic, indicate GBHs and metabolites
are widely present in the global soybean system and that human exposures
to GBHs are clearly rising,” the study
authors wrote, in their conclusions. “Tolerable daily intakes for
glyphosate in the US and Germany are based upon outdated science.


“Taken together, these conclusions all indicate that a fresh and
independent examination of GBH toxicity should be undertaken, and that
this re-examination be accompanied by systematic efforts by relevant
agencies to monitor GBH levels in people and in the food supply, none of
which are occurring today. The US National Toxicology Program should
prioritize a thorough toxicological assessment of the multiple pathways
now identified as potentially vulnerable to GBHs.

“The urgency of
such work was reinforced in March 2015 when the IARC [International
Agency for Research on Cancer, World Health Organization] concluded
glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen,” the study authors conclude.

 

US to Plunder Afghanistan’s Mineral Riches

US to Plunder Afghanistan’s Mineral Riches

 Endless US aggression in Afghanistan has nothing to do with combating
terrorism (America supports it), everything to do with controlling the
country, using it for oil and gas
pipelines, part of encircling Russia and China with US military bases,
and plundering vast Afghan mineral riches – likely worth trillions of
dollars, a prize corporate predators covet.

Why is the USA in Afghanistan? An Answer To The Big Question | New Eastern Outlook

Why is the USA in Afghanistan? An Answer To The Big Question | New Eastern Outlook

 

Donald Trump is sending more troops to
Afghanistan, continuing the USA’s longest war. CEO Michael Silver, of
the American Elements corporation, wrote a short op-ed in the Wall
Street Journal, urging for the extraction of the country’s mineral
resources. Afghanistan remains unstable. Many questions must be asked.
The one on many minds is “Why is the USA in Afghanistan?”


Terrorism? Minerals? Or Something Else?


The USA has been occupying Afghanistan
since 2001. Why? Both supporters and opponents of US Afghan policy give
murky answers. Supporters of US efforts say they are in the country to
fight terrorism and help the country rebuild and move toward democracy.
Opponents of the occupation say the USA is seeking to control its rare
minerals such as neodymium, indium, gallium, and lanthanum which are
essential in making computer chips.


These answers are insufficient. As for
terrorism, since 2001, the presence and strength of terrorist groups in
Afghanistan has vastly increased. Al-Queda, ISIS, various warlords,
Jundallah, and many terrorist groups, most of which had minimal presence
under the Taliban government, are now all across the country. Even the
Taliban itself, the government the USA toppled in the 2001 invasion, has
not vanished, and still controls a large portion of the country. If the
USA is in Afghanistan to fight terrorism, its efforts have not only
completely failed, and but had the opposite of their intended affect.

by the United States, the United
Kingdom, Russia, Germany, France, China and the European Union and
brokered, in 2015, in order to facilitate peace in the Middle East and
the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons. Israel, of course, is the
only undeclared nuclear weapons state in the world having secretly built
up an arsenal of up to 400 nuclear warheads – enough to destroy the

Sex Slavery, ISIS & Illegal Arms Trade: Libya Plunged Into Failed State After US invasion

Sex Slavery, ISIS & Illegal Arms Trade: Libya Plunged Into Failed State After US invasion

 

Special Report: Six years after the U.S. helped “moderate rebels”
overthrow Muammar Gaddafi, Libya has gone from enjoying the highest
standard of living in Africa to a failed
state where live human auctioning for sex slavery is out in the open in
Libya, where groups like ISIS have overrun the nation.


Gaddafi used state money to offer a variety of popular services
including free electricity, interest-free loans, grants to newlyweds,
legal rights to housing, maternity bonuses for new mothers, free
education, 50-percent subsidies on new car purchases and free
healthcare. The country’s literacy rate also rose from 25 to 87 percent
during his time as its leader. In addition, Gaddafi nationalized Libya’s
central bank and kept Libya free of external debt.

Gaddafi
committed a cardinal sin in the lead-up to his assassination – not
against the Libyan people, but against the hegemony of the U.S. dollar.
In the early 2000s, Gaddafi had saved up a large amount of gold and
planned to introduce a gold-backed pan-African currency based on the
Libyan dinar in order to restore economic strength to a continent
besieged by neocolonialism. He had planned to start selling Libyan oil
using the dinar before the 2011 invasion, a move that would have
challenged the petrodollar system – an agreement negotiated in the 1970s
where OPEC nations sell their oil in dollars in order to create
artificial demand for the currency.

Why Greece's Grexit Option Deserves Consideration

Why Greece's Grexit Option Deserves Consideration

 

Special report: Eight years into the deepest economic depression that
an industrialized country has ever experienced, we are now being told
that Greece is a “success story.” Having
accepted the “bitter medicine” prescribed by the “troika”—the European
Commission, the European Central Bank, and the International Monetary
Fund—the storyline today is that Greece is on the road to recovery,
firmly within the European Union and the eurozone.


This narrative was recently echoed by Greek Prime Minister Alexis
Tsipras in his annual speech at the Thessaloniki Trade Fair, Greece’s
equivalent to the State of the Union address. In this speech, Tsipras
triumphantly declared that talk of “Grexit”—or a Greek departure from
the eurozone and the EU—has been replaced by that of “Grinvest.”


Within such a context, there is seemingly no room for discussions about
whether it is in Greece’s best interest, even after so many years of
implementing the troika’s austerity diktats, to consider a departure
from the eurozone and the EU. Indeed, the narrative is that the people
of Greece overwhelmingly have never supported the prospect of “Grexit.”

EU report on weedkiller safety copied text from Monsanto study | Environment | The Guardian

EU report on weedkiller safety copied text from Monsanto study | Environment | The Guardian

 

Corporate Europe Observatori

Huge splash in the Guardian and many other outlets this morning on glyphosate.


The European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) final assessment report,
which the European Commission uses to justify its proposal to reautorise
glyphosate for 10 years in the EU, has largely been copy-pasted from an
industry report.

Copy-pasted!


The original lines stem from an industry report which the pesticide
lobby group Glyphosate Task Force submitted to the agency as part of the
normal procedure – but the EU agency hardly changed a word!

One
of the most scandalous features: EFSA adopted the pesticide industry’s
analysis of the available independent scientific literature, which
dismissed the significance of all the results finding harm. Having
assessed the very same independent studies, the World Health
Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer came to the
exact opposite conclusion: they considered glyphosate a likely
carcinogen.

The urgent need to reform the EU’s pesticides
assessment system could hardly be made clearer than by the
ever-expanding glyphosate scandal. Not relying on industry’s studies and
interpretations of independent data would be a good first step,
wouldn’t it?

Vietnamese-American author Viet Thanh Nguyen observed in his 2016 book, Nothing Ever Dies, that “All wars are fought twice, the first time on the battlefield, the second time in memory.” That is surely true of the Vietnam War, which – although it ended four decades ago – continues as a battle of memory, history and truth.

it has managed to take under the cover

contested land from Syria with the help of Al Nusra terrorists on the

been positioned there since 1974. Amazingly, the UN still has not
updated its website to express this new reality on the ground (still

5 Stories You're Missing While Monster Hurricanes Cause a Media Frenzy

 

(ANTIMEDIA) Since the end of August, calamitous hurricanes have dominated the news cycle. From Harvey to Irma to Maria, which grew from
a Category 1 to a Category 5 storm in just half a day, many people want
to stay informed about the struggle and damage these natural disasters
are leaving in their wake.

We're revolutionizing the news industry, but we need your help! Click here to get started.



Unsurprisingly, the media’s obsessive focus on the disasters has not only jarred some
residents trying to keep their families safe — it has also allowed
other important developments to remain on the back burner.






Though these other stories have received some degree of attention in
mainstream narratives, they haven’t received the extensive coverage they
deserve. Here are five vital developments from the past few weeks that
have taken a backseat to the drama and destruction of hurricanes:................

How Monsanto Manufactured 'Outrage' at Chemical Cancer Classification It Expected

How Monsanto Manufactured 'Outrage' at Chemical Cancer Classification It Expected

 

By Carey Gillam

Three years ago this month Monsanto executives realized they had a big problem on their hands.

It was September 2014 and the company's top-selling chemical, the weed killer called glyphosate that is the foundation for Monsanto's branded Roundup
products, had been selected as one among a handful of pesticides to
undergo scrutiny by the World Health Organization's International Agency
for Research on Cancer (IARC). Monsanto had spent decades fending off
concerns about the safety of glyphosate and decrying scientific research
indicating the chemical might cause cancer or other diseases. And even
though the IARC review was still months away, Monsanto's own scientists
knew what the outcome would likely be—and they knew it wouldn't be good.

Internal company records show not just the level of
fear Monsanto had over the impending review, but notably that company
officials fully expected IARC scientists would find at least some cancer
connections to glyphosate. Company scientists discussed the
"vulnerability" that surrounded their efforts to defend glyphosate amid
multiple unfavorable research findings in studies of people and animals
exposed to the weed killer. In addition to epidemiology studies, "we
also have potential vulnerabilities in the other areas that IARC will
consider, namely, exposure, genetox and mode of action…" a Monsanto
scientist wrote in October 2014.
That same email discussed a need to find allies and arrange funding for
a "fight"—all months before the IARC meeting in March 2015.

And
Monsanto predicted internally before IARC even met that the review of
the scientific evidence would result in a decision that glyphosate
"possibly" was carcinogenic or "probably" was. Monsanto officials had
forecast the IARC decision in an internal "preparedness" plan
that warned colleagues to "assume and prepare for the outcome..." The
document shows Monsanto thought it most likely that IARC would peg
glyphosate as a "possible human carcinogen." The rating of probable
carcinogen was "possible but less likely," the Monsanto memo stated.
IARC ultimately did classify glyphosate as "probably carcinogenic to humans."

As
the IARC meeting loomed, the internal documents show that Monsanto did
not wait for the actual IARC decision before acting. It enlisted teams
of PR and lobbying experts, scientists and others in a plan aimed at
creating what was designed to appear as a storm of "outcry" and
