Feckless #Monsanto sues to keep warning labels off of deadly pesticide

Screenshot 2017-11-15 at 08.06.34WTF? Seriously?

Monsanto Co and U.S. farm groups have sued California to stop the state from requiring cancer warnings on products containing the widely used weed killer glyphosate, which the company sells to farmers to apply to its genetically engineered crops.

California added glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, to its list of cancer-causing chemicals in July and will require that products containing glyphosate carry warnings by July 2018.

California acted after the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) concluded in 2015 that glyphosate was “probably carcinogenic”.

For more than four decades, profit hungry farmers have been putting tons of glyphosate on the crops that end up in your grocery store.
