Monsanto, the maker of Roundup Weed Killer is in a fight regarding its use of glyphosate in its products after the California EPA is pushing and moving forward to declare the ingredient a carcinogen. After 40 years of Monsanto marketing the product as being just as “safer than table salt” and stronger than the possibility of weeds developing resistance to it, the ingredient is showing up in foods and California wines. Both of Monsanto’s claims have been proven untrue but the manufacturing giant keeps fighting and pushing the ingredient as good. The more the weeds resist the pesticide product, the more pesticides are needed in a never-ending circular problem that makes big bucks for Monsanto. Monsanto tried to get the Courts to accept its argument that it’s not lawful for the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer having any say in our Courts since it’s not elected in the United States and a foreign body. The Courts shot that argument down and the fight continues. Meanwhile, even organic brands of food are finding traces of the possible carcinogen, glyphosate in their products.
