A former EPA official involved in a controversial study of the health effects of Monsanto’s glyphosate is being taken to court by public interest advocates who want to know more about his ties to the company and the chemical industry.
Last spring, a report published on the EPA’s website said glyphosate does not cause cancer. It disappeared within a week and an advocacy group’s efforts to obtain the information has been met with silence. Now it is suing for access.
If Bayer completes its takeover of Monsanto, it would become a company with Orwellian control over how we grow our food and what we eat.
