    The first lawsuit in the U.S. to make it to trial alleging that Monsanto’s Round-Up/Glyphosate herbicide causes cancer started last week in Federal District Court in San Francisco, California.

    Here is an article that provides some additional information about the issues surrounding Monsanto, Round-up and Glyphosate. I found the article to be particularly interesting, especially the parts where: 1) evidence has been uncovered as to Monsanto’s public relations game plan to counter consumers concerns/questions about their product and 2) evidence of the “relationships” Monsanto executives had with EPA employees (who held critical positions in the regulatory oversight over Glyphosate). While this article goes into somevdetail about Monsanto’s relationship/interaction with the EPA, it is also noted that the CDC had regulatory oversight over this product.
    I found this blog from 2015, which discusses what the CDC has and has not been doing to review potential exposure by the public to manmade chemicals. Data has apparently been collected on this subject and reported to Congress from the CDC’s “National Exposure Report”. I have not independently verified the information presented in this blog as accurate, but it certainly raises some questions that might be worthy of further investigation into what the CDC is actually doing to adequately fulfill its charge to evaluate the potential adverse health effects from exposure to man-made chemicals, including Glyphosate. http://havacuppahemlock1.blogspot.com/2015/09/cdc-chemical-exposure-report.html
