All quotes about Monsanto

Franziska Achterberg - Greenpeace

Whether this is a question of negligence or intent, it is completely unacceptable. It calls into question the entire EU pesticide approval process. If regulators rely on the industry's evaluation of the science without doing their own assessment, the decision whether pesticides are deemed safe or not is effectively in the industry's

Wolfgang Vogel

We strongly hope that with the new government there will be a new approval of glyphosate. It would be very hard for farmers if they had to renounce

Bayer have always played in the Champions League, despite a difficult national competition, which has impressed me very much. To be wanted by such a club makes me proud and I'm looking forward to playing in the Bundesliga in one of the most attractive leagues in

Rudi Völler - Bayer

Retsos had offers from some top clubs playing internationally this year, so it is all the more pleasing for us that he has decided to move to Bayer – especially since he was so elemental to Olympiakos qualifying for the Champions League.

We're on a road to nowhere. The next story is resistance to a third chemical, and then a fourth chemical - you don't have to be a rocket scientist to see where that will end. The real issue here is that people are using ever-more complicated combinations of poisons on crops, with ever-more complex

If authentic, these records confirm that Monsanto knew that their PCBs were harmful and pervasive in the environment, and kept selling them in spite of that fact. They knew the dangers, but hid them from the public in order to

Scott Partridge - Monsanto

More than 40 years ago, the former Monsanto voluntarily stopped production and sale of PCBs prior to any federal requirement to do so. At the time Monsanto manufactured PCBs, they were a legal and approved product used in many useful applications. Monsanto has no liability for pollution caused by those who used or discharged PCBs into the

Bill Sherman

At the same time that Monsanto was telling the public that that PCBs were safe, they were literally graphing their potential legal liability against the lost profits and public image boost that might accompany being responsible and honest.

Fiorella Belpoggi

Exposed animals had no evident differences from non-exposed animals. But this tells us very little at the moment, because the examinations of key parameters that could be affected by exposure are still being done (and) we are waiting for those results.

This was to ensure we would have the best experts analyze each end

No matter whether Borussia, Bayer [Leverkusen] or Schalke. We want to show that terror and hatred can never determine our actions.

Franziska Achterberg - Greenpeace

ECHA has gone to great lengths to sweep all evidence that glyphosate can cause cancer under the carpet. The data vastly exceeds what's legally necessary for the EU to ban glyphosate, but ECHA has looked the other way. For the EU to make decisions based on science, it can't distort the facts. If the EU doesn't get this right, people and the environment will continue to be the lab rats of the chemical

Our evaluation was a review of all the published scientific literature on glyphosate and this was done by the world's best experts on the topic that in addition don't have any conflicts of interest that could bias their assessment, and they concluded that, yes, glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans based on three strings of evidence, that is clear evidence of cancer in experimental animals, limited evidence for cancer for humans from real-world exposures, of exposed farmers, and also strong evidence that it can damage the genes from any kind of other toxicological
