I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…
EPA Official Accused of Helping Monsanto “Kill” Cancer Study:
(Joel Rosenblatt, Lydia Mulvany, Peter Waldman) The Environmental Protection Agency official who was in charge of evaluating the cancer risk of Monsanto Co.’s Roundup allegedly bragged to a company executive that he deserved a medal if he could kill another agency’s investigation into the herbicide’s key chemical.
The boast was made during an April 2015 phone conversation, according to farmers and others who say they’ve been sickened by the weed killer. After leaving his job as a manager in the EPA’s pesticide division last year, Jess Rowland has become a central figure in more than 20 lawsuits in the U.S. accusing the company of failing to warn consumers and regulators of the risk that its glyphosate-based herbicide can cause non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
My Commentary: Conspiracy theory? Meddling Russians? Quick, mainstream media monopoly! Tell me who’s to blame for this fake news story, and which government agency to rely on for solutions, so I can resume life in my comfort zone of unquestioning complacency and consumerism!
Thanks in Advance,
The Average American
