Rounding Us Up, and Exposing Us All to Cancer 31.3.2015 Truthout - All Articles
The World Health Organization has just declared the most widely used herbicide in the world, glyphosate, a "probable human carcinogen," a designation long overdue. Cancer is only one of many health consequences of the growing scourge of herbicides, pesticides and GMOs. (Image: Spraying herbicide via Shutterstock) A friend of mine sent me an email recently after being alarmed by observing a neighbor's son, as a city employee, spraying the herbicide Roundup along the Jordan River Parkway in the center of Salt Lake City. She asked him what he was spraying and he said, "nothing dangerous, just Roundup." He wasn't wearing any protection of any kind. The very same day, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that they had concluded the active ingredient in Roundup, glyphosate, the most widely sold agricultural and household herbicide in the world, billed as one of the most benign herbicides ever manufactured, was a "probable carcinogen." The WHO elaborated that their biggest concern was for occupational ...

Sorry, Monsanto: The Science Is on Our Side, Not Yours 27.3.2015 Truthout.com
A few weeks ago, I spoke by phone with Cathleen Enright, executive vice president of the Biotech Industry Organization (BIO). (Long story ). During the course of our conversation, when we touched on the subject of the science behind the debate over whether or not GMOs are "safe" (me arguing that there's no scientific consensus ) Enright said, "Then you must not believe in climate change, either."  I glossed over that accusation, though it struck me as odd. And random. Until less than a week later, on March 9 (2015), an article appeared in the Guardian under this headline: "The anti-GM lobby appears to be taking a page out of the Climategate playbook." That's when I realized what I should have known. Enright's comment wasn't random at all. It's just a new twist on an old talking point—from an industry on the verge of crumbling under the weight of an avalanche of new credible, scientific evidence exposing not only the dangers of GMO crops and the toxic chemicals used to grow them, but the extent to which ...
