“Going further into 2015, it’s clear that this GMO behemoth has many more obstacles to face that will most likely lead to a continued loss… That said, it is clear to me that Monsanto’s continued decline is in full swing.”
“There is now an enormous cache of evidence on both scientific and legal grounds that Monsanto in fact conducted numerous studies in the 1970s and 1980s on glyphosate’s toxicity and health risks and intentionally sealed this research from independent and public review and scrutiny.
