Monsanto loses cancer label lawsuit, accused of ghostwriting study

Monsanto loses cancer label lawsuit, accused of ghostwriting study | Organic Farming | Scoop.it
A California judge has ruled against Monsanto Co. in its attempt to prevent the main ingredient in the company’s Roundup herbicide products from being added to a state list of cancer-causing chemicals. 

 Separately, Creve Coeur-based Monsanto was accused in a court filing unsealed Tuesday of ghostwriting scientific papers that led an EPA regulator to conclude glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, shouldn’t be classified as a carcinogen, Bloomberg reported. The filing, part of lawsuit by farmers claiming glyphosate exposure caused their non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, included a 2015 email exchanged between Monsanto employees suggesting they ghostwrite a few sections of a research paper in order to save money. The email further states that’s how a 2000 study was handled, the news agency reports.
