"In March 2015, the World Health Organization declared that the company’s flagship product, Roundup, is a probable human carcinogen. In Sept 2015, California’s environmental protection agency launched plans to label Roundup as a carcinogen."
"While the company manages to successfully dodge scientific research--, the tables would-- turn if it could be proven in a court of law that Monsanto has known for decades that glyphosate is one of the most toxic substances ever launched on the public, which adversely affects almost every tissue and cell in a mammal’s body."
"The question could Monsanto be charged with crimes---?"
"This scenario may not be fantasy--In November 1998, the US government won a judgment against the four largest US tobacco companies.-- The case came to trial after a-- whistleblower-- revealed that his company concealed the tobacco’s health risks and was making concerted efforts to addict people to smoking--to increase smoking, sales and profits."
"Before the trial there had never been a lawsuit lost by a tobacco company. Their rationale was that they believed their research data and marketing strategies were protected under propriety secrecy claims and therefore they could avoid conviction. Although FDA scientists possessed all the necessary information that could condemn Big Tobacco’s false claims,--The FDA-- (proved itself impotent)--. Consequently it is estimated that millions of people died."
The guilty verdict,-- resulted in--a minimum $206 billion settlement--.--the settlement unfortunately exempted the industry from private-- claims. No tobacco executive went to prison and evidence indicates the industry emerged stronger and consolidated the companies into an ever more powerful cartel."
"What busted the tobacco companies was not the scientific evidence piling up outside the industry. Rather it was its crimes of omission about cigarettes’ health risks within the industry. The industry’s own research prosecuted itself. And this is demanded today in order to bring down Monsanto’s chemical regime and to protect populations and children throughout the world."
