(NaturalNews) The downfall of the Monsanto chemical empire could go down in history as having had its official launch in 2015, the year that its flagship herbicide Roundup was found by the World Health Organization (WHO) to be a probable cause of cancer in humans. 2015 is also the year that it was revealed that Monsanto has been hiding the dirty details of this deadly chemical formula from regulatory authorities for nearly four decades.
An independent research scientist by the name of Anthony Samsel procured some 15,000 pages worth of documents from Monsanto covering the full gamut of research on Roundup, the most widely used herbicide in the world, and the information contained in those pages isn’t pretty. In essence, Monsanto has known full well for nearly 40 years that Roundup and glyphosate are linked to organ damage and cancer, and yet this information was withheld from public purview as “proprietary trade secrets.”
As a member of the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), Samsel has spent much of his career life studying the toxicological effects and bioactivity of Roundup. Based on a cohort of scientific data, he has come to the conclusion that Monsanto purposely failed to submit to regulators evidence showing that glyphosate isn’t as safe or biodegradable as the company claims.
“Monsanto misrepresented the data,” Samsel told listeners during a recent broadcast on the Progressive Radio Network (PRN) that aired on September 4. Monsanto “deliberately covered up data to bring the product [glyphosate] to market,” he added.

Monsanto corrupted scientific process to push deadly poisons on agriculture
What did this critical data show? According to Samsel, Monsanto intentionally corrupted animal studies by using animals that were already sick with cancer and organ failures as controls. Based on the metrics used in these studies, this made those animals exposed to glyphosate appear no more afflicted than the control animals because all of the animals ended up getting sick.
It’s the same thing vaccine manufacturers do to make toxic vaccines appear “safe and effective”: they give “controls” a different kind of vaccine than the one being tested so that all the test subjects are injected with some kind of vaccine. Then, when rates of encephalitis, autism, and other conditions appear generally equal among the test group and the controls, Monsanto is able to make the false claim that no additional adverse effects were observed.
“In order to minimize and cancel out its adverse findings, Samsel explained that Monsanto had relied upon earlier historical animal control data, toxicological research with lab animals afflicted with cancer and organ failures, and completely unrelated to glyphosate,” explains an article by PRN about the scandal.
The PRN report adds that Monsanto routinely includes what it says are “extraneous studies” to hide or cancel out negative outcomes in other studies and make a particular chemical or GMO product appear safe when it actually isn’t. This criminal tactic has allowed Monsanto and other chemical giants to spread millions of tons of deadly chemicals around the world without penalty when such products never should have gained regulatory approval in the first place.
“In effect, glyphosate received licensure based upon a platform of junk tobacco science,” the report explains. “By ignoring cause and effect relationships behind the onset of multiple cancer and other life-threatening diseases throughout many of its research trials, Monsanto engaged in a radical scientific denialism that has since raked in tens of billions of dollars.”
