Monsanto Roundup Attorneys' Defense
In response to this, Monsanto/Bayer has trotted out Dr. Donna Farmer. Dr. Farmer has studied chemicals at Monsanto for over 20 years. She disagrees with these new findings of cancer risk and says that the chemical is safe. She accuses the WHO of cherry-picking the data and interpreting scientific studies differently than researchers who did the study.
Dr. Farmer says that glyphosate targets a particular enzyme in plants, which humans and animals don't have. Her long-term study shows that the chemical doesn't cause cancer.
Jurors in these cases overwhelmingly decided they did not believe Dr. Farmer's arguments that were adopted at trial by their experts.
- Monsanto help back the conventional wisdom on the connection between NHL and its pesticide for a long time by ghostwriting articles for "experts" who passed them off as their own. Do they still do this? Hard to say. But you have to wonder what motivates puff pieces like this, right? Would Bayer's PR Department write this any differently?
- That pesticides cause health complications is hardly a surprise. We are learning more about the harm these kinds of chemicals cause. The latest is Paraquat, a toxic chemical thought to cause Parkinson's disease.
