A Must-Read on Monsanto

Monsanto story by Jill Richardson

Monsanto story by Jill Richardson

On April 27th, Jill Richardson posted this article: “Why Is Damning New Evidence About Monsanto’s Most Widely Used Herbicide Being Silenced?”

It’s a must-read. But in case you need the gist before you pop over there to read it, here’s the premise.

Don Huber, retired professor of plant pathology at Purdue University, found dangerous microscopic organisms on Roundup Ready crops. He notified the Secretary of Agriculture confidentially, advising him to keep the issue under wraps until conclusive evidence could be found – but the letter was leaked, and thanks to the Internet, it went viral.

Huber took some criticism from colleagues at Purdue for this, because his findings were (then, at least) self-admittedly inconclusive. And the mainstream media used this lack of data to downplay the validity of Huber’s concerns. But that was before. Huber has evidence now – enough to warrant a serious study on the part of the USDA. And yet, now that the data is there, Huber isn’t getting any air-time, anymore.

Jill Richardson asks, why?
