Bayer Admits Monsanto Kept ‘Watch Lists’ On Opponents In Europe


Recommended Posts

I have been saying this for years about Monsanto but I was told it was a conspiracy theory. Now it is conspiracy fact.

 

In a startling development, multinational pharma company Bayer has publicly admitted that biotech company Monsanto, which it purchased for $63 billion in 2018, had been keeping ‘watch lists’ on influential people across Europe. The firm’s announcement follows prosecutors in France revealing they have opened an investigation over allegations Monsanto had maintained records on 200 French people, including politicians and journalists, with the goal of influencing their positions on pesticides and GM crops. With Bayer already facing potential multibillion-dollar damage payments to patients who developed cancer after using Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller, the revelation adds to the deepening crisis surrounding the pharma company’s takeover of the controversial biotech giant.

 

The secret files were apparently kept on people from at least seven different European countries. Said to be compiled for Monsanto by PR agency FleishmanHillard, the countries concerned include France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Stakeholders related to Brussels EU institutions are also believed to have been included on the lists.

 

 

Mounting lawsuits against Bayer

In a further Monsanto-related development, a jury in California recently ordered Bayer to pay more than $2 billion to Alva and Alberta Pilliod, a couple who developed cancer after using Roundup. This was the third time that Bayer has been ordered to pay cancer damages in California over the toxic weedkiller, and the highest amount yet awarded. In the other two cases, Dewayne Johnson, a school groundskeeper, was awarded $289 million last year, later reduced to $78 million on a legal technicality, while Edwin Hardeman was awarded $80 million in March of this year. Both men developed cancer after using the chemical

 

With an additional 13,400 Roundup-related lawsuits outstanding against Bayer in state and federal courts in the United States, its share price having plummeted over the past year and even its credit rating now under scrutiny, the company’s future is undeniably at threat. In this respect, the recent launching of a lawsuit in Australia, related to a gardener in Melbourne who developed cancer after using the weedkiller, seems likely to further deepen Bayer’s problems by encouraging the filing of additional cases in yet more countries.

Good grief, doctor Rath strikes again turning a news story into another conspiracy theory for the bats to feed upon. 

It's a conspiracy fact not a theory.

More than 100,000 people in the United States claim exposure to Monsanto's glyphosate-based Roundup herbicides caused them to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and that Monsanto long knew about and covered up the cancer risks.

That is my friend what a conspiracy is. Monsanto knew Roundup causes cancer and still kept on selling it to the consumers. Same thing that happened with Agent Orange in Vietnam.

Dow Chemical and Monsanto were the two largest producers of Agent Orange for the U.S. military and were named in the suit, along with the dozens of other companies (Diamond Shamrock, Uniroyal, Thompson Chemicals, Hercules, etc.)

Look what realclearscience said on Roundup in 2018. They said quit the roundup conspiracy theories. Looks like this science site wasn't so scientific were they? So we would call that fake news or propaganda since the real truth has come out by people standing up to Bayer once known as Monsanto.

Monsanto had nothing to do with any orange agent. You're confusing the 'orange' president with enemy orange agents. The proof is that you refer to an 'agent orange' when in fact there are thousands of enemy agents trying to destroy Trump.

 

Are you going to try to say that Fauci and his accomplices arent trying to destroy Trump now? Is that your latest 'monsanto'?

After many preliminary proceedings, a trial date was set for May 7, 1984. Judge Weinstein, the trial judge, urged the parties to shape a settlement, and on the eve of the trial, a settlement was reached. The settlement was approved in January 1985, after a series of hearings were held around the country to ensure that the settlement was fair and reasonable to the members of the class (Schuck, 1987). Under the settlement, the defendant chemical companies (Dow; Monsanto; Diamond Shamrock Corporation; Hercules, Inc.; Uniroyal Inc.; T-H Agricultural & Nutrition Company; and Thompson Chemicals Corporation) agreed to make available a fund of $180 million (Schuck, 1987).
