The unending war continues…

…no not the one in Afghanistan but the fight over Roundup…the herbicide banned most places but here.  It’s been going on almost as long!

It’s a controversy that has, if nothing else, revealed the unholy alliance between Big Pharma and the government which is “here to protect us”.

Along the way, there’ve been many successful lawsuits and government (not U.S.) bans against using the product.  Now Bayer is advancing the defense that since the American government hasn’t outlawed its use, cancer victims have no right to sue for damages and wrongful death.  Meanwhile Bayer plans to continue selling Roundup but under a new name.

Joel Salatin in his latest blog tries to sort out the nonsense.
