"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."
4. The Green MEP Bart Staes said: “The timing of the release of this report by the FAO/#WHO could be described as cynical, if it weren’t such a blatantly political and ham-fisted attempt to influence the EU decision later this week on the approval of #glyphosate.” #Bayer
5. Thus the #glyphosate-case is becoming a case of bought studies, of corrupt international bodies linked to the #UN & #WHO, of corporate influence overruling real public health concerns!
