"Monsanto, which Bayer recently acquired, now faces some 8,000 glyphosate-related lawsuits in the U.S."

Sounds like monsanto/bayer control congress!

When will we and our law makers wake up to the fact that it is modern farming and the almighty farm lobby that is killing our environment??? Environmental groups should band together and fight the Farm Bureau using their very successful tactics.

We should have the right to choose whether or not we want to be poisoned.
