Glyphosate on Trial: Unearthing Monsanto/Bayer’s Secrets

For years, Monsanto declared that their product Roundup, the world’s most widely used weed killer, was safe. But in 2015, scientific studies concluded that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, is probably carcinogenic. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Monsanto disagreed with the findings, as scientists worked to understand the link between glyphosate and cancer.

“I’m convinced about the glyphosate association with cancer, as a probable carcinogen, and the link to lymphoma. I’m convinced of that.” 

— Dr. Chadi Nabhan

On the Monsanto Roundup Trials

Dr. Chadi Nabhan’s book, Toxic Exposure, tells the true story of his role as an expert physician witness who testified in multiple state and federal trials against Monsanto. His book recounts the heartbreaking stories of numerous patients who developed the cancer non-Hodgkin lymphoma, after regularly using Roundup on yards and school grounds.

Monsanto is now owned by Bayer, one of the largest agrochemical companies in the world. These companies and the EPA downplayed the health dangers of Roundup and the active ingredient glyphosate even after Monsanto lost numerous court cases (owing billions in judgements) and settled out of court for more than $11 Billion for more than 100K patients.

In this interview we discuss the history of Roundup, the dangers of glyphosate, the trial stories and verdicts, and what the everyday person can do to fight for justice against this agricultural behemoth.

“The playbook of Monsanto is let’s discredit the witnesses. Let’s make sure that they are seem to the public like really bad people.” — Dr. Chadi Nabhan
