#Repost @gmofreeusa_official with @get_repost ・・・ California Defies EPA: This month, in an effort to help Bayer, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said it would not approve consumer labels warning that glyphosate (Roundup) is known to cause cancer and has told companies not to warn customers about products that contain glyphosate. But the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has rejected EPA’s attempt to dismiss California’s Prop.65 law, which requires a cancer warning on labels of weedkillers containing glyphosate. The California agency issued the statement: “OEHHA objects to U.S. EPA’s characterization of any warning concerning glyphosate’s carcinogenicity as ‘a false claim’. U.S. EPA’s assertion is based on its view that glyphosate is not likely to cause cancer in humans. That position conflicts with the determination made by IARC and its scientific panel, which included experts from the U.S. National Cancer Institute, U.S. EPA and the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health, who carefully evaluated the extensive scientific evidence on glyphosate’s carcinogenicity. It is disrespectful of the scientific process for U.S. EPA to categorically dismiss any warnings based on IARC’s determinations as false.” That’s right, EPA’s own scientists know that glyphosate can cause cancer, but Trump’s appointed head of the EPA, Administrator Andrew Wheeler, works for the polluter corporations, not the American people. So he and other political appointees are pulling out all the stops in an attempt to help Bayer-Monsanto dig itself out of a very deep hole and return to profitability. This is what government corruption, regulatory capture and collusion look like. When taxpayer funded agencies tasked with protecting the American people and our environment spend all their time and resources protecting the corporate poison pushers instead.
