Monsanto is fuming: The European Court of Justice just ordered the release of its bogus glyphosate studies to the public.
This is huge.
These studies are the reason the European Union re-licensed cancer-linked glyphosate for another five years back in 2017. Monsanto’s been fighting tooth and nail to keep these studies secret.
Monsanto would do anything to get its infamous toxic weedkiller approved. But this stops now.
But we need to be quick: we have momentum on our side with this court ruling, we need to use it to get the EU to act now and ban glyphosate once and for all. Are you in?
It’s really incredible: not even our MEPs have seen these studies.
Until now, the European Food Safety Authority refused to give anyone access — saying that it “could harm the commercial interests of companies that presented the studies”.
You and I both know what this means: Monsanto doesn’t want anyone — least of all credible scientists — to take a closer look, because it would mean the end of its toxic, cancer-linked weedkiller in Europe, and then around the world.
But the court ruling changes all this. And it has Bayer-Monsanto shaking in its boots. That’s why its lobbyists are likely fighting tooth and nail to stop the research ever seeing the light of day. And that’s why we need to be quick.
This is our chance to ban glyphosate for good — and get the EU to do a U-turn on its license of glyphosate. But we can only do it, if we have enough funds to hire a top scientist to go through the research, page by page. This could be the breakthrough we need to get Monsanto’s toxic pesticide banned for good.
Thanks for all that you do,
