Roundup and Cancer ruling in US

Recommended Posts

So, what?,  was he bathing in it, flagrantly ignoring common sense/good practise etc etc, etc, etc.

Why are these systemic underlying abuses never examined?


Knowing of such stupid practises within the agricultural community in respect of Organo-phosphate sheep-dip, a product my father, a non sheep farmer, warned me about, also Dad, when mixing various "tank-mixes" of herbicide for barley, was fucking paranoid careful, some 50 years ago, before any of this shit came to the fore.

His simple logic was that if the product could do "what it said on the tin" it must be a powerful chemical, and therefore deserved to be treated with simple respect.

Why is that so hard to grasp, judging from the behavouir of some?

Who then plead stupid ignorance.

And claim big.

The patent for gyphosate (roundup) expired a few years ago, spawning cheap generic roundup. This put a dent in Monsanto earnings. I'd not be surprised if some big chem company is behind this to ban glyphosate so they can corner the market for the latest greatest safer, expensise (and patented) herbicide. Bare in mind the court was trial by a jury of hippies and the victim was a minority, in California, where hammers can cause cancer (no joke).
