#Warprofiteers: @Bayer lifts forecasts as food shortages boost demand for seeds and weedkiller. Almost doubles its growth forecast for 2022 as sharp increase in global food prices proves a boon for Bayer’s business…
@Bayer Despite profiting from the impact of the war on food prices, @Bayer still trades close to 60% below its level before news of its #Monsanto acquisition. That has exposed Bayer to concerns #Roundup causes cancer and it triggered an investor revolt that CEO Baumann barely survived.
@Bayer Bayer has already set aside up to $16 billion for existing and future Roundup lawsuits. In June, it suffered a major legal defeat when the US Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal over a landmark ruling that awarded $25M to a man who claimed #Roundup had caused his cancer.

💣 If you haven't yet read this @Fakir_ article, now is the time!

We learn how a journalist wrote articles under false identities to influence public opinion, including articles aimed at discrediting @IARCWHO after it classified #glyphosate as a probable carcinogen 🧐

@Fakir_ @IARCWHO These ghostwritten pieces on #glyphosate contain the usual pesticide lobby talking points:
👉Comparison with table salt
👉Glyphosate prevents world hunger
👉@IARCWHO's view is at odds with regulatory agencies
👉Suspect links with environmental groups
@Fakir_ @IARCWHO The pieces of the puzzle fit together:

Remember! Just the year before, #Monsanto had paid scientists to sign ghostwritten papers criticizing the same @IARCWHO conclusions:

U.S. Supreme Court rejects Bayer bid to nix Roundup weedkiller suits… The Supreme Court's action dealt a blow to Bayer as the company maneuvers to limit its legal liability in thousands of cases. #glyphosate
The decision frustrates Bayer’s plan to stem the wave of litigation it has faced since its $63bn takeover of #Monsanto. More than 30,000 claims remain outstanding, for which Bayer set aside $4.5bn in addition to the approximately $11.5bn Bayer had already been forced to set aside
Last month, Bayer’s stock fell 6.2% the day after the Biden administration recommended the Supreme Court decline to hear Bayer’s appeal. That move by the U.S. Justice Department appeared to diminish the chances of the court hearing the case… #glyphosate

Monsanto’s Ghostwriting to Influence Science and Media…
While most ghostwriting scandals in science involve physicians, #Monsanto ran a unique and sophisticated campaign to promote GMO technology and attack critics /1 Image
When the World Health Organisation was going to find the herbicide #glyphosate linked to cancer, #Monsanto started a ghostwriting campaign to counter.

Monsanto's William Heydens “Manuscript to be initiated by [Monsanto] as ghost writers." /2 Image
Documents uncovering this corruption became available through Freedom of Information FOIA and litigation, and were later publicised.

Experts Blast David Robert Grimes for His Failure to Understand Science and Love of Self-Citation…
While claiming to debunk conspiracies and speak for science, Grimes ignores published research and channels corporate PR. (Grimes in an ad for Vodafone.) /1
Researchers in toxicology & epidemiology are crying foul and calling for retraction of a recent Grimes essay in JAMA Oncology that dismissed scientific & government evidence of harm from radio frequency radiation.… /2
“I’m surprised a journal published this,” said Ron Melnick, who spent 3 decades at the National Toxicology Program. “It’s not a review. It’s an op-ed. To be less generous, it’s an advertisement.” /3

Todos los delitos relacionados a este colosal fraude. Tiene un origen en común.

El PRÍAN. Aquí es la continuidad del PRI desde el PAN.

Las outsourcing es un contexto ya muy documentado y muy comentado.

Los PANISTAS en el legislativo, las defendieron con uñas y dientes.

Le scandale du #MEDIATOR
a tellement mis en avant des pbs de conflit d’intérêt entre les organismes de l’Etat et BIGPHARMA,

que l’AFSSAPS a changé de nom et c’est nommée #ANSM… Image


La sphère publique est juge et partie.
Cela peut mener a une sous-évaluation des incidents déclarés.

ANSM= une cible pour le lobby de BigPharma. Pb / Levothyrox, Depakine, Médiator… ImageImage

Des politiques influents peuvent être rémunérées par Bigpharma.
Il y a aussi des récompenses (offres de travail); ex de Monsanto.

Brilliant interview with @careygillam on the nuts & bolts of agriculture & pesticide disinformation… Carey's just been blocked by corporate sponsors of a big ag media event from talking to fellow journalists about how to investigate stories using FOIA
@careygillam Carey says corporate money is at play in journalism conferences and gives example of how @Bayer—in exchange for v generous donations—positioned itself to not just set agendas for journalistic conferences but get a say in what kind of stories are applauded and promoted via awards.
@careygillam @Bayer Carey & @thackerpd also discuss the evidence of Monsanto's targeting of journalists & scientists via front groups & other third parties. One group targeting Carey et al was told, “The key will be keeping #Monsanto in the background so as not to harm the credibility of the info.”

(1/10) Whew. We read that @nytimes piece “Learning to Love G.M.O.s” too… and let’s just say we’re not impressed. Let’s break it down. A #thread:
(2/10) This article is a pro-corporate ag spin piece. It’s the same pro-GM arguments we’ve heard again & again, repackaged. They argue we need GM for a) healthier food, b) better-tasting food, and c) more food for a growing population in a changing climate. That’s just not true.
(3/10) A) GM won't solve for healthier food b/c it doesn't address the underlying social, econ, & political drivers of deficiencies. Proprietary tech DOES line the pocketbooks of corps like @Bayer, though. Read more from @MarciaIshii on GM golden rice here…

New York Times Magazine publishes false and misleading statements in pro-GMO fairytale… And the resurrected #GMO purple tomato takes centre stage
To conjure up its fairytale @NYTmag ignores much of the reality of GMO crops. As @Nathan_Donley notes, there's only passing mention of #Monsanto et al & the destruction caused by their herbicide-promoting GMO crops, grown on hundreds of millions of acres—never mind seed patenting
@NYTmag @Nathan_Donley .@NYTmag also makes no mention of #dicamba-tolerant GMO crops. "How can you have a serious discussion about genetic engineering and ignore the livelihoods and habitats that have been irreversibly destroyed throughout the Midwest and South in the last 5 years?" asks @Nathan_Donley

Das Münchener Biotechnologie-Unternehmen AmSilk hat gerade 29 Mio. € eingeworben, um mit Hilfe von Gentechnik Seidenfasern herzustellen, die in einem neuartigen Schuh Verwendung finden sollen. #Gentechnik-Schuhe auf dem deutschen Markt? Experten warnen:…
#Foodwatch: Wir sind gegen diesen Schuh. Die Verbraucher wollen keine #Gentechnik. Der Schuh sollte zumindest so gekennzeichnet werden, dass schon von weitem erkennbar ist, dass hier Gentechnik im Spiel war. Alles andere wäre Etikettenschwindel.
Svenja Schulze/#BMU: Wir wollen keine Gentechnik auf deutschem Boden. Der Schuh ist außerdem schlecht für die Artenvielfalt. Wo er auf den Boden auftrifft, wächst nichts mehr. Der Druck schadet auch Käfern, Ameisen und Bodenlebewesen.

1. At the beginning of 2021, #AMLO signed an executive order to ban GM corn and the toxic chemical #glyphosate over three years.

Now, a judge has provided #Bayer with a stay against the order.

The Mexican judiciary's war against AMLO's agenda continues.…
2. The ban came as a surprise to the #US and #BigAg, which thought their lobbying efforts had been sufficient to quash any such measure. In fact...…
3. US agencies & #Monsanto did a full-court press to stop Mexico from taking action. Leaked #USTR emails complain of “vocal anti-biotechnology activists” in the administration, and that Mexico’s health agency (Cofepris) is “becoming a big-time problem”.…

As far back as 2015, the agribusiness monopolist @JohnDeere was taking steps to ban farmers from fixing their own tractors, arguing that copyright law made trafficking in tools to effect these repairs a felony.…

1/ A vintage John Deere tractor whose wheel hubs have been repl
The company took this to the US Copyright Office, saying that farmers couldn't fix their tractors because they don't OWN them, despite paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for them - software in tractors means they can only be licensed, not owned.…

Deere bolstered this argument with a paternalistic warning that farmers are just not qualified to service tractors, prompting electronics specialist Willie Cade - grandson of a legendary Deere engineer - to speak out against the company.…

Seed monopolies: Who controls the world's food supply?… Today @Bayer-#Monsanto & 3 other giant corporations control more than 50% of the world's seeds
@Bayer "Seeds are ultimately what feed us and the animals we eat. Control over #seeds is, in many ways, control over the food supply. The question of who produces new plant varieties is absolutely critical for the future of all of us." — Jack Kloppenburg, University of Wisconsin-Madison Image
@Bayer Imposing uniform seed rules on a global scale means forcing industrial farming onto parts of the world where food is still largely produced by smaller-scale, more sustainable farms.

1. [OMS]

L'#OMS, cette structure régulièrement critiquée pour son manque de transparence, se définit comme « l’autorité directrice dans le domaine de la santé international au sein du système des Nations Unies ».

VIDÉO 1/12 ⬇️
2. Bien qu’elle ait toujours été financée par des mécènes privés, cette part ne s’élevait qu’à 20% dans les années 1970, 80% provenaient des États membres des Nations Unies.
Or, aujourd'hui la situation s'est inversée.
Avec, à la clé, des "contributions volontaires spécifiées".
3. L'indépendance de l’#OMS fait doute. En effet, contre toute attente, la structure est de plus en plus dépendante de fonds privés, comme #BillGates, car elle manque d’aides publiques.
De quoi laisser craindre une prise d’influence sur des questions de santé publique.

Im Netz machen gerade #Morgellons die Runde - angebliche Strukturen, die krank machen und die sich in Teststäbchen und Masken befinden sollen. @dittrich_lars hat einen lesenswerten Thread dazu
An der Story sind die Grünen nicht ganz unschuldig.
Morgellons spielen nicht nur bei Menschen eine Rolle, die sich vor #Masken. #Coronatests und #Chemtrails fürchten. Auch in der Anti-#Gentechnik-Bewegung ist schon seit längerem von #Morgellons die Rede.
Die Ängste werden befeuert durch angebliche Gentechnik-Experten aus „Instituten“ mit pompösen Namen, die in Wahrheit nur von ein paar Personen betrieben und zumeist von der (Bio-)Industrie finanziert werden.

Seeds of Power tells the story of Argentina’s swift agrarian transformation based on the early adoption and intensive implementation of genetically modified (GM) soybeans.
Argentina is the third largest global grower and exporter of GM crops. Its soybeans—which have been modified to tolerate being sprayed with herbicides—now cover half of the country's arable land and represent a third of its total exports.
