Jury Finds Monsanto liable in the first Roundup cancer trial – here’s what could happen next



Much of the plaintiff’s case was based on a widely criticized 2015 statement by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organization, that glyphosate was a “probable human carcinogen” (Group 2A on its scale). A classification of “human carcinogen” (Group 1) means that a panel of scientists convened by the IARC believes the agent is a cancer hazard to humans, like smoking and ionizing radiation. The 2A classification is not as strong. It means that there is credible evidence, but it does not reach the standard of “beyond a reasonable doubt.”

The IARC’s process for determining carcinogenicity has come under heavy criticism before. In particular, in the early 2000s some observers worried that industry was actually influencing the agency to downgrade its classification of chemical agents. In the Roundup cases, the accusation against the IARC cuts the other way. According to some accounts, it was biased against industry and sought a harsh classification for glyphosate.

The IARC has provided a detailed defense of its process in the glyphosate evaluation. It has also published a monograph on glyphosate with all the gory details of the science behind its evaluation.

I served on a monograph working group in 2007 for an IARC assessment of whether shift work was a potential cancer hazard. I have also participated in three other meetings sponsored by IARC over the years, so I have seen the agency’s process up close. In my view, IARC personnel go to great lengths to ensure objectivity and scientific rigor.

This does not mean that their classifications are the last word. In fact, the agency has often changed its classification of an agent based on new evidence after initial evaluation. Sometimes it has become more certain that the agent poses a hazard, but in other cases it has downgraded the hazard.

Full article:

Agelbert NOTE: I'll save you some time. Monsanto 👹 is lying about not having tested glyphosate to detertmine whether or not it is a Carcinogen. They 🔬 have AND they know the EXACT concentrations that produce the Carcinogenic results in test animals, but they 👹 have made very sure that it cannot be proven in court.

But, that's not where THAT skullduggery ends, not by a long shot. Monsanto 👹 uses the old reliable Tobacco Propaganda Mense Rea Modus Operandi (SEE BELOW) to obfuscate/prevent any attempt at attempt to present evidence of glyphosate carcinogenicity by honest third parties 👨‍🔬🔬 that tested glyphosate.

Monsanto will do everything possible to avoid paying the amount determined by the court BECAUSE, if they pay (as they would if they had any ethics whatsoever!), the floodgates will be open to destroying their "doubt is our product" multi-decade stall/scam which has poisoned millions of people and animals surreptitiously.

So, in order to continue profiting from the crime and NOT paying the fine or doing the time, Monsanto 😈 will take this all the way to the Supreme Fascists Court , where the "award" will be reduced to a pittance or overturned.
