Judge to Decide if Raft of Cancer Lawsuits Move Forward Against Monsanto

A new hearing carries huge implications for the agrochemical giant.

By Lorraine Chow / EcoWatch…..March 5, 2018, 12:00 PM GMT….A federal judge in San Francisco will hear from expert witnesses on the science and safety of glyphosate at critical hearing starting Monday that will determine if plaintiffs around the country can move forward with their legal action against Monsanto over cancer claims.

 

More than 365 pending lawsuits against the agribusiness giant have been centralized in multidistrict litigation under U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria. The plaintiffs claim they or their loved ones developed non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) due to exposure to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller.

During the week-long hearing—dubbed "Science Week"—epidemiologists, oncologists, toxicologists and other scientists representing both sides will offer testimony about glyphosate.

The judge will not decide whether or not glyphosate causes cancer. Rather, Chhabria will determine if the experts providing scientific opinions regarding causation will be permitted to testify at trial, explained Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman, one of the law firms leading the litigation.

TRUMP is petrified by women

Oprah got perfect response from Danish woman on their social welfare state

 

By Egberto Willies 2018/03/04 · 10:49  ….Denmark continues to hold the rank as the country where people are the happiest in the world. This Danish woman had a response that shocked Oprah on her thoughts on the misrepresentation of Democratic Socialism a few years back.

Bottom of Form

The enlightened Danish woman defended her country’s form of democracy with words Americans would do well learning and implementing sooner than later. The Danish woman told Oprah that happiness is considered a big success.

Oprah pointed out that in fact, Denmark is a Democratic Country but that it had Socialist views. One of the guests acknowledged that without hesitation. The other woman gave it the necessary context.

"Well, you might think so," the Danish woman said. "We don’t necessarily think of it as that. We all think of it as being civilized; that you take care of your old and your sick. And you make sure that people get well educated. So we think of it more as being civilized."

And that is what separates ideologies. Some are humane while others are intrinsically selfish and thus evil. A civilized country is about having programs in one’s nation that protect & invest in all of its citizens. Ayn Randian ideologies are about allowing the lowest savagery of our humanity to emerge.

Bernie Sanders’ article "What Can We Learn From Denmark?" is a must-read. Americans should expect so much more especially given our collective wealth of resources and human capital. We must work together to form a society that does not allow the greed, selfishness, and immorality of a few to dictate what our society looks like.

We can change our nation if we start to empower ourselves with the realization that our political influence will matter if we take the time to complain less, engage more, and assert our worth. If Denmark and other Scandinavian countries can do it, we can as well. And we must not allow anyone or entity to deter us with fallacies like, "Scandinavian countries are small," and "These countries are homogeneous." With good leadership everything scales.
