The Monsanto Papers

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola

Story at-a-glance -

  • Between 1974 and 2014, glyphosate use increased more than 250fold in the U.S. Today, an estimated 300 million pounds are applied on U.S. farmland annually
  • Evidence suggests Roundup is highly toxic, and evidence unearthed during legal discovery shows Monsanto has been well aware of its toxicity, and has been covering it up
  • August 10, 2018, a jury ruled in favor of plaintiff Dewayne Johnson in a historic case against Monsanto. Johnson — the first of 9,000 pending legal cases — claimed Monsanto’s Roundup caused his Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Evidence presented in legal cases against Monsanto include email correspondence and corporate documents that create a comprehensive narrative of corporate malfeasance and collusion with U.S. regulatory agencies. These documents are known as “the Monsanto papers”
  • Only 13 animal studies and half a dozen epidemiological studies have looked at glyphosate’s carcinogenic potential, and the vast majority of those studies show a correlation between glyphosate and cancer

The Australian documentary, "The Monsanto Papers," reveals the secret tactics used by global chemical giant Monsanto (now owned by Bayer AG), to protect its bestselling herbicide, Roundup.

The film starts out with a quick history of Roundup and how its now-clearly absurd safety claims (such as "it's biodegradable," "safe enough to drink," and "safer than table salt") made it into the worlds' most widely used weed killer, used by farmers and private gardeners alike. Indeed, it was at one time known as "the world's most trusted herbicide," but those days are now long gone.
