I was writing a rebuttal to Dr Grum’s article “The Case for GMOs” @Ethiobserver . But I have to break my silence as some people, out of their utter ignorance, are relentlessly making ad hominem attacks on #GMO opponents. #Ethiopia
You can search “@kebyes GMO” so that you will learn how enthusiastic I am about the issue. Unlike others who are bashing every opinion/evidence, I like to ask questions first. That is how you learn. So please ask before resorting to attacks, PEOPLE. #Ethiopia

[Draadje] Ter achtergrond bij het artikel dat we vandaag @FTM_nl publiceren, is het interessant om het vonnis (hoger beroep) van de meest recente Amerikaanse #Roundup-rechtszaak, die van het het echtpaar #Pilliod, in te zien..(1)…
De rechter verlaagt in het vonnis het schadebedrag dat #Bayer-Monsanto moet betalen van $2 miljard (!) naar $86,7 miljoen. De rechter onderschrijft echter het oordeel van de jury, dat het bedrijf verantwoordelijk is voor de ziekte van het echtpaar..(2)…
Volgens de rechtbank had Monsanto namelijk op basis van de beschikbare wetenschappelijke & medische kennis kunnen weten dat Roundup een risico geeft op non-Hodgkin lymfoom, een agressieve kanker..(3)

Research also points to serious adverse consequences for the environment, and there are indications #glyphosate can cause disease in mammals even several generations removed from the initial exposure.

Why are U.S. regulators not listening?
ICYMI — As more lawsuits claiming a link between Roundup and cancer move forward, a new report claims the main ingredient found in the weed killer is showing up in organic beer and wine.

Alexandra Lahav, a professor at the University of Connecticut School of Law, says that one lesson of this case so far is that attempts to get favorable decisions from regulators can backfire in court.

"It has emerged that an institute co-run by the chairman of the #UN’s joint meeting on pesticide residues (#JMPR) received a six-figure donation from #Monsanto, which uses the substance as a core ingredient in its bestselling #Roundup weedkiller."
2. "Professor Alan #Boobis, who chaired the #UN’s joint FAO/WHO meeting on #glyphosate, also works as the vice-president of the International Life Science Institute (#ILSI) Europe.
In 2012, the ILSI group took a $500,000 (£344,234) donation from Monsanto!"
3 Lawyer, ClientEarth group: "There is a clear conflict of interest here if the review of the safety of #glyphosate is carried out by scientists that directly get money from industry.This study cannot in any way be reliably considered when deciding whether to approve glyphosate."

I lived in England for years and as an investigative reporter I followed the creation of this monstrosity of globalization called the #EuropeanUnion. It's #NAFTA times 50!… #Brexit
My investigation into the EU began when I got the minutes of 14 secret meetings between all the top banking chiefs and international government operatives. They called themselves #TheInvisibles.… #Brexit
The Invisibles were writing the rules of the EU to smash unions and stop regulation of industry. We’ve just seen an example of this; Germany was about to vote to eliminate #RoundUp, but changed its crucial vote weeks after BAYER bought #Monsanto.… #Brexit

And here it is. More Monsanto internal emails and texts with the EPA.…
In today's Pilliod v. Monsanto testimony, expert Dr. Charles Benbrook shared more about the scientific fraud by Industrial Bio-Test (IBT) Laboratories in the 1970s, and how Roundup was approved by the EPA based on IBT's invalid studies. #MonsantoTrial
Dr. Benbook is an agricultural economist and headed a subcommittee of the House Committee on Agriculture at the height of the IBT scandal from 1981-1983. @helenchristophi reported on his Johnson testimony and the IBT fraud here:…

Bon je m'y colle. Mais je ne vais pas y passer des heures, j'ai mal dormi 😀 @SciencesPoulet
@AntBerranger @emma_ducros @agritof80 et aux autres. Petit rappels sur le #glyphosate.
Préliminaire : mes tweets n'engagent que mon opinion personnelle. Ceci étant dit, jevais commencer par une petite présentation pour ceux qui auraient la flemme d'aller voir mon profil sur #LinkedIn. Je n'ai pas de pseudo et c'est volontaire.

Décryptage de la méta-analyse (Zhang 2019) sur les associations épidémiologiques entre exposition au #glyphosate et risque de #lymphome non-hodgkinien (LNH)

Principal résultat : +41% de risque de LNH pour les individus très exposés

#cancer #RoundUp
▪️Méta-analyse de données résumées (pas de ré-analyse des données individuelles brutes)
▪️Critère de sélection basé sur hypothèse a priori : exposition élevée aux formulations glyphosate (longue durée, hautes doses, temps de latence élevé) pourrait conduire à un risque ↗️ de LNH
Exposition choisie : groupes de travailleurs avec une exposition élevée (pas d'exposition basse). Les personnes avec une exposition basse pourrait diluer l'effet de l'association.
▪️Base de recherche : Pubmed, updaté en août 2018
❗️Pas d'études non publiées inclues

@TorniAlan @RobertKennedyJr @CapitalJon @mektronik 1. As a lawyer I would call it “coming to the nuisance”: #Bayer knew about the challenges against #glyphosate (#Roundup). They exist in the #EU, in Africa, in #Asia & the #US: Bad news for Bayer - In the US you have to pay huge damages! Good for the consumer! #Monsanto
@TorniAlan @RobertKennedyJr @CapitalJon @mektronik 2. I would love to see what the due diligence report stated during the #Monsanto-takeover - It seems that #Bayer underestimated the risk-impact of #glyphosate somewhat! Many concerns on #Roundup existed for years! There is also a reason why #Monsanto was called #Monsatan...
@TorniAlan @RobertKennedyJr @CapitalJon @mektronik 3. Never understood why a 150 year old #Pharma-company, with good brands,a very decent goodwill and high margins would expand further into #CropScience (never did well for #Bayer) with a company like #Monsanto (soso reputation, lower margins & obvious risk)!
