The glyphosate accused of causing a disability. For the first time in France, a complaint was filed against the American Monsanto by the parents of a child suffering from a malformation of the larynx. In the United States 3,500 complaints have already been filed against the agrochemical giant. Le Monde reveals that Monsanto defrauded to hide the risks of its flagship product. He was paying scientific experts to sign studies for glyphosate. An avalanche of notes and e-mails were exchanged by Monsanto employees. Confidential memos whose publication promises to be an unprecedented scandal for the US giant of GMOs and pesticides.
