Monsanto ‘bullied scientists’ and hid weedkiller cancer risk, lawyer tells court: “Monsanto has specifically gone out of its way to bully and to fight independent researchers…they fought science.”

A lawyer recently had the courage to state what conspiracy researchers have been shouting from the rooftops for decades: Monsanto is anti-science and anti-humanity.

The case is significant in part because the judge has allowed Johnson’s lawyers to present scientific arguments. The suit centers on glyphosate, the world’s most widely used herbicide, which Monsanto began marketing as Roundup in 1974, presenting it as a technological breakthrough that could kill almost every weed without harming humans or the environment.

Over the years, however, studies have suggested otherwise, and in 2015, the World Health Organization’s international agency for research on cancer (IARC) classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans”.
