This might have been a tough week for Monsanto Co. The Environmental Protection Agency was slated to hold four days of public meetings focused on essentially one question: Is glyphosate, the world’s most widely used herbicide and the lynchpin to Monsanto’s fortunes, as safe as Monsanto has spent 40 years telling us it is?
War on Want stated Wednesday that “Monsanto as a corporation has deservedly gained huge public contempt over the past few decades. The model of industrial agriculture and food production it promotes – through its seeds and agrochemical business – leads to poverty and injustice worldwide.”
