Monsanto Paid Internet Trolls to Counter Bad Publicity
https://www.baumhedlundlaw.com/monsanto-paid-internet-trolls/

Newly released court documents show that Monsanto has been accused of using
third-parties to hire an army of internet trolls to post positive comments
on websites and social media about Monsanto, its chemicals and GMOs, and
downplay the potential safety risks surrounding the company’s popular
glyphosate herbicide

.

The unsealed court documents are from the ongoing Monsanto Roundup
litigation in Northern California before U.S. District Court Judge Vince
Chhabria. The docs were posted by U.S. Right to Know
<https://usrtk.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/MDLLetNothingGomotion.pdf>,
nonprofit organization working for transparency and accountability in our
nation’s food system.

Hundreds of people from California and across the United States have filed
Roundup cancer lawsuits against Monsanto
<https://www.baumhedlundlaw.com/toxic-tort-law/monsanto-roundup-lawsuit/>,
alleging that exposure to Roundup weed killer caused them or their loved
ones to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Dozens of these cases were
consolidated in a multidistrict litigation (MDL) before Judge Chhabria.
Other lawsuits with similar allegations have been filed in several other
state courts as well. Roundup cancer attorneys anticipate thousands of
people filing suit against Monsanto over the link between Roundup and
cancer.

The lawsuits were filed in response to the World Health Organization’s
International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) report on glyphosate
<https://www.baumhedlundlaw.com/toxic-tort-law/monsanto-roundup-lawsuit/who-glyphosate-cancer-study/>,
one of the key ingredients in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide. The report
found that glyphosate is a “probable human carcinogen,” and that the
cancers most associated with glyphosate exposure are non-Hodgkin lymphoma
and other hematopoietic cancers.

The IARC report also found evidence that glyphosate exposure can cause DNA
and chromosomal damage in human cells, as well as genotoxic, hormonal and
enzymatic effects in mammals.
