Amaphepha eMonsanto - Izimfihlo Eziyingozi, Ukukhohlakala Kwebhizinisi, kanye Nokufuna Komuntu Ubulungiswa

Phrinta imeyili Ungahlukıselana Ephathwayo

Incwadi entsha yoMqondisi Wezocwaningo wase-USRTK uCarey Gillam iphumile manje futhi iqoqa izibuyekezo ezikhanyayo. Nayi incazelo emfushane yencwadi evela kumshicileli Isiqhingi Press:

U-Lee Johnson wayeyindoda enamaphupho alula. Konke ayekufuna kwakuwumsebenzi ozinzile kanye nekhaya elihle lomkakhe nezingane, okungcono kunempilo enzima ayaziyo esakhula. Wayengakaze acabange ukuthi angaba ubuso bokubambana kukaDavid noGoliyathi ngokulwa nesinye sezikhondlakhondla zezinkampani ezinamandla kakhulu emhlabeni. Kodwa ingozi yasemsebenzini yashiya uLee efakwe ikhemikhali enobuthi futhi ebhekene nomdlavuza obulalayo owaguqula impilo yakhe yabhekisa phansi. Ku-2018, umhlaba ubukele njengoba uLee ebhekwe phambili kwezimpi ezisemthethweni ezinkulu kakhulu emlandweni wakamuva.

Amaphepha eMonsanto yindaba yangaphakathi yecala elibalulekile likaLee Johnson elibhekene neMonsanto. KuLee, leli cala lalingumjaho ophikisana newashi, nodokotela babikezela ukuthi ngeke aphile isikhathi eside ngokwanele ukuthi angathatha ukuma kofakazi. Eqenjini le-eclectic labammeli abancane, abanesifiso sokumela, bekuyindaba yokuziqhenya kobungcweti nokuzibeka engcupheni komuntu siqu, nezigidi zamadola abo kanye nodumo olutholwe kanzima kulayini.

Ngamandla okulandisa athintekayo, Amaphepha eMonsanto ithatha abafundi ekusithekeni kwempi yomthetho ekhathazayo, ibuyisa ikhethini ebuthakathakeni bohlelo lwenkantolo yaseMelika nobude abameli abazoya kulo ukulwa nobubi bezinkampani futhi bathole ubulungiswa kubathengi.

Imibhalo Eyimfihlo Idalula Impi kaMonsanto Ngososayensi Bomdlavuza

Phrinta imeyili Ungahlukıselana Ephathwayo

NguStacy Malkan (kubuyekezwe ngoMeyi 17, 2019)

UDeWayne Johnson, ubaba oneminyaka engama-46 obulawa yi-non-Hodgkin lymphoma, waba ngumuntu wokuqala ukubhekana IMonsanto ecaleni ngoJuni odlule ngenxa yezinsolo inkampani yafihla ubufakazi ngezingozi ezibangelwa umdlavuza ze-Roundup weedkiller yayo. Amajaji aselokhu abuya nawo ezintathu ngazwi linye izinqumo ukuthola ukuthi i-glyphosate-based Roundup herbicides iyimbangela enkulu yomdlavuza, futhi yalinganisa umonakalo omkhulu wokujeziswa kweBayer (manje esingeyaseMonsanto). Izinkulungwane eziningi zabantu zimangalele izinkantolo zombuso nezikahulumeni, kanye nemibhalo yezinkampani ephuma ezivivinyweni ikhanya kakhulu kumaqhinga anzima iMonsanto esetshenziselwa ukuphika ingozi yomdlavuza nokuvikela ikhemikhali elaliyi lynchpin yenzuzo yayo.

“IMonsanto kwakungumbhali waso wesipoki ngokubuyekezwa kokuphepha, ”kubika iBloomberg, kanye nesikhulu se-EPA kubikwa ukuthi wasiza uMonsanto “Bulala” ucwaningo lomdlavuza lwenye i-ejensi (lokho kuphuma, manje kuphelile qinisekisa isixhumanisi somdlavuza ku-glyphosate). An uphenyo olwawina imiklomelo eLe Monde Imininingwane yokuthi uMonsanto uzame kanjani “ukubhubhisa i-ejensi yomdlavuza yeZizwe Ezihlangene nganoma iyiphi indlela” ukusindisa i-glyphosate. Izindatshana zeJenali ezisuselwa ekubukezweni kombiko wemibhalo yokutholwa kwesilingo seRoundup ukuphazamiseka kwebhizinisi encwadini yesayensi kanye nenhlangano elawula umthetho, nezinye iziboneloukufaka ubuthi emthonjeni wesayensi. "

“Ukubhalwa kwesipoki kukaMonsanto nokuqinisa izikhali kusongela isayensi yomsindo nomphakathi, "Kubhala uSolwazi waseTufts University uSheldon Krimsky ngoJuni 2018. Uthe imibhalo etholakele," yembula ukuthunjwa kwesayensi okuyinkampani, okubeka impilo yomphakathi kanye nesisekelo sentando yeningi engcupheni. "

Kusukela lapho, njengoba sekuqhubeka izivivinyo, sekuvele eminye imibhalo mayelana ne ubukhulu bokukhohlisa kukaMonsanto kwenqubo yesayensi, izinhlaka zokulawula, nezimpikiswano zomphakathi. NgoMeyi 2019, izintatheli eFrance uthole imfihlo "Ifayela leMonsanto" eyenziwe yinkampani yezobudlelwano bomphakathi iFleishmanHillard ibala "inqwaba yolwazi" cishe izintatheli ezingama-200, osopolitiki, ososayensi nabanye ababonakala bengaba nomthelela empikiswaneni ye-glyphosate eFrance. Abashushisi eFrance bavule uphenyo lobugebengu futhi IBayer ithe iphenya inkampani yayo i-PR.

Le mpi yenkampani yesayensi inomthelela omkhulu kithi sonke, uma kubhekwa ukuthi uhhafu wabo bonke abesilisa e-US kanye nowesithathu kwabesifazane bazotholakala benomdlavuza esikhathini esithile sokuphila kwethu, ngokusho kwe I-National Cancer Institute.

Imibhalo imboni yokudla ayifuni ukuthi uyibone

Sekuyiminyaka, izimboni zokudla nezamakhemikhali zibheke ngqo kokuhlosiwe okukodwa emhlabeni wesayensi: i-International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), iqembu elizimele locwaningo elisebenze iminyaka engama-50 khomba izingozi zomdlavuza ukwazisa izinqubomgomo ezingavimbela umdlavuza.

“Kade ngilwa i-IARC unomphela !!! :) ”omunye usosayensi owayenguKraft Foods wabhalela owayengusosayensi waseSyngenta ku-imeyili itholwe ngesicelo samarekhodi esivulekile sombuso. “Ukudla ne-ag sekuvinjezelwe kusukela eGlyphosate ngoMashi 2015. Sonke kudingeka sihlangane ngandlela-thile siveze i-IARC, njengoba nina nenze ephepheni. Izinto eziza kuqala kakhulu yizo zonke izithako zokudla: i-aspartame, i-sucralose, i-iron yokudla, i-B-carotene, i-BPA, njll. I-IARC iyasibulala! ”

Isazi se-IARC isinqumo sephaneli ukuhlukanisa i-glyphosate ngokuthi “mhlawumbe ibanga umdlavuza kubantu” kudale indawo yokuhlangana yezitha zephaneli ukuqoqa amabutho. Umbhalo osemqoka weMonsanto okhishwe ngamacala wecala wembula uhlelo lokuhlaselwa: ihlazisa ososayensi abanomdlavuza ngosizo lwabalingani embonini yezokudla.

Uhlelo lukaMonsanto lokuxhumana nomphakathi unikeze abasebenzi abangu-20 bezinkampani ukulungiselela umbiko we-IARC we-carcinogenicity on glyphosate, ngezinhloso ezibandakanya "ukunciphisa umthelela," "ukubeka umbono womphakathi nge-IARC," "ukufinyelela komlawuli," "ukuqinisekisa i-MON POV" kanye "nokubandakanya izinhlangano zezimboni" "ekuthukutheleni. ”

Lo mbhalo ukhombe izigaba ezine "zabalingani bemboni" ukusiza ukuqhubekisela phambili izinhloso ezintathu ezishiwo ohlelweni lwe-PR: ukuvikela isithunzi se-Roundup, ukuvimbela izimangalo zomdlavuza "ezingenasisekelo" ekubeni umbono ovamile, kanye "nokuhlinzeka ngezembozo ezinhlanganweni ezilawulayo" ukuqhubeka nokuvumela ukusetshenziswa kwe-glyphosate.

Ukuthola inethiwekhi kaMonsanto "yabalingani bemboni"

The amaqembu abalingani bemboni uMonsanto uthephiwe ukwehlisa isithunzi ososayensi be-IARC babandakanya izinhlangano ezinkulu zokubulala izinambuzane kanye nezimboni zokudla; amaqembu e-spin axhaswa ngezimboni aziveza njengemithombo ezimele efana Izimpendulo ze-GMO futhi Umkhandlu Wemininingwane Yomhlaba Wokudla; futhi "isayensi-y" kuzwakala amaqembu angaphambili afana Umuzwa weSayensi, lo Iphrojekthi ye-genetic Literacy Project futhi Ukubuyekezwa Kwezifundiswa - konke kusetshenziswa imilayezo efanayo futhi kuvame ukubhekiswa komunye nomunye njengemithombo.

Amadokhumenti atholiwe yi-US Right kuya Yazi uphenyo khanyisa ukuthi la maqembu abalingani asebenzisana kanjani ukukhuthaza i- "MON POV" mayelana nokuphepha kanye nesidingo semithi yokubulala izinambuzane kanye nama-GMO.

Iqoqo elilodwa lemibhalo lembula ukuthi izinkampani zikaMonsanto ze-PR zahlela kanjani “Ukubuyekezwa Kwezemfundo” njengenkundla ezwakala ingathathi hlangothi lapho ingaqala khona ukuhlaselwa uhlu lwezitha, kufaka phakathi iSierra Club, umbhali uMichael Pollan, i-movie ethi Food, Inc. kanye ne- imboni yemvelo.

Abakhi bokubukeza kwezifundo - ababambisene nabo UBruce Chassy futhi UDavid Tribe, Isikhulu seMonsanto u-Eric Sachs, owayengumqondisi wezokuxhumana eMonsanto uJay Byrne, Futhi owayeyi-VP weqembu lokuhweba lomkhakha we-biotech iVal Giddings - wakhuluma obala in ama-imeyili maqondana nokusungula ukubuyekeza kwe-Academics njengeqembu eliphambili lokukhuthaza izintshisekelo zemboni nokuheha imali yemboni, ngenkathi kugcinwa izigxivizo zeminwe zenkampani zifihliwe.

I-imeyili evela ku-Eric Sachs, iMonsanto'sScience, Technology & Outreach Lead, iya kuBruce Chassy

Ngisho namanje ngebhuku labo lokudlala lidaluliwe - kanye nelabo imali eyisisekelo ikhonjisiwe njengoba ivela eqenjini lezentengiselwano elixhaswe ngabakwaMonsanto, iBayer, iBASF, iSyngenta neDowDuPont - i-Academics Review isafuna lokho iwebhusayithi ukwamukela iminikelo evela “emithonjeni okungeyona eyezinkampani” Ukubuyekezwa kwe-Academics kubuye kuthiwe "Ukubuyekezwa komdlavuza we-IARC glyphosate kwehluleka ezingxenyeni eziningi," ku okuthunyelwe itholwe yiwebhusayithi ye-PR exhaswa yimboni Izimpendulo ze-GMO, iqembu eliphambili elixhaswe yimboni Umkhandlu waseMelika weSayensi nezeMpilo, kanye nendatshana yeForbes ngu Henry Miller lokho kwabhalwa isipoki nguMonsanto.

UMiller nabahleli be-Academics Review Chassy, ​​Tribe, Byrne, Sachs and Giddings are amalungu e-AgBioChatter, isithangami se-imeyili sangasese esivele ohlelweni lweMonsanto lwe-PR njengomlingani womkhakha wesi-2. Ama-imeyili avela kuhlu lwe-AgBioChatter ziphakamisa ukuthi yayisetshenziselwa ukuxhumanisa ababambisene nabo embonini emisebenzini yokunxenxa neyokuphromotha ukuvikela ama-GMO kanye nezibulala-zinambuzane. Amalungu afaka abasebenzi abaphezulu embonini yezolimo, abeluleki be-PR kanye nezifundiswa ezixhasa umkhakha, iningi labo elibhalela izinkundla zezindaba zomkhakha ezifana Izimpendulo ze-GMO futhi Iphrojekthi ye-genetic Literacy Project, noma badlale izindima zobuholi kwamanye amaqembu abalingani beMonsanto.

I-Genetic Literacy Project, eholwa ngumkhakha osebenza isikhathi eside wamakhemikhali i-PR UJon Entine, futhi ibambisene ne-Academics Review ukwenza uchungechunge lwezingqungquthela ezixhaswe imboni yezolimo ukuqeqesha izintatheli nososayensi ukuthi ukukhuthaza kangcono ama-GMO kanye ne-pesticides baphikisane nokwehliswa kwabo emthethweni. Abahleli bebekhona abangathembeki ngemithombo yezimali zabo.

Lawa maqembu aziphonsa njengabaxazululi abathembekile besayensi njengoba besabalalisa imininingwane engamanga nezinga eliseduze nokuhlaselwa okushubile kwabososayensi abaphakamise ukukhathazeka ngengozi yomdlavuza ye-glyphosate.

Isibonelo esisemqoka singatholakala kuwebhusayithi ye-Genetic Literacy Project, ebibhalwe ukuthi “yi-tier 2 industry partner” ohlelweni lukaMonsanto lwe-PR lokuvikela i-Roundup ekulweni nokukhathazeka komdlavuza okuvezwe yi-International Agency for Research on Cancer. Ukuseshwa kwe- "IARC" kuwebhusayithi ye-Genetic Literacy Project kuveza izindatshana ezingaphezu kwama-200, eziningi zazo ezihlasela ososayensi abaphakamise ukukhathazeka ngomdlavuza ngokuthi "ama-anti-chemical enviros" "aqamba amanga" futhi "enza uzungu lokumelela kabi" izingozi zempilo glyphosate, futhi bephikisana nokuthi i-ejensi yomdlavuza yomhlaba wonke kufanele ibuyiselwe imali futhi iqedwe.

Izindatshana eziningi ezilwa ne-IARC ezifakwe ku-Genetic Literacy Project, noma eziqhutshwa abanye abasebenza embonini, ziyishaya indiva imibiko eminingi yezindaba ngokususelwa Amaphepha eMonsanto ukubhala ukungenelela kwezinkampani ocwaningweni lwesayensi, futhi esikhundleni salokho kuthuthukiswe izimangalo zezimboni zamakhemikhali ze-PR noma ze- izindaba ezingamanga a intatheli enobudlelwano obuhle noMonsanto. Impi yezepolitiki yokulwa ifinyelele yonke indlela eya eCapitol Hill, namaRiphabhulikhi e-DRM aholwa ngu Ummeli uLamar Smith efuna kuphenywe nokuzama uku ukugodla imali yase-US kusuka kunhlangano ehamba phambili yocwaningo lomdlavuza.

Ngubani ohlangothini lwesayensi?

Ukunxenxa nokuthumela imiyalezo kukaMonsanto ukudicilela phansi iphaneli yomdlavuza we-IARC kusekelwe empikiswaneni yokuthi ezinye izinhlaka ezisebenzisa ukuhlolwa okususelwa engcupheni zikhiphe i-glyphosate engcupheni yomdlavuza. Kepha njengoba imibiko yophenyo futhi iphephandaba izihloko ngokusekelwe ku Amaphepha eMonsanto bunemininingwane eminingi, ubufakazi bufaka ukuthi ukuhlolwa kokulawulwa kwezinhlekelele ku-glyphosate, okuthembele kakhulu ocwaningweni olunikezwa yimboni, kuyekethiswa ngokungadalulwanga ukungqubuzana kwezintshisekelo, ukuthembela kusayensi engabazisayo, izinto ezibhalwe ghost nezinye izindlela zokuqinisa izikhali ezinkampanini ezibeka impilo yomphakathi engcupheni, njengoProfesa waseTufts USheldon Krimsky wabhala.

“Ukuvikela ibhizinisi lesayensi, enye yezinsika zomphakathi wentando yeningi wanamuhla, ekulweni namandla angalenza isisebenzi sezimboni noma ezepolitiki, umphakathi wethu kumele usekele izikhubekiso phakathi kwesayensi yezemfundo kanye nemikhakha yezinkampani futhi ufundise ososayensi abasha futhi abahleli bephephabhuku ngemigomo yokuziphatha esezingeni lomsebenzi wabo, ”kubhala uKrimsky.

Abenzi benqubomgomo akumele bavumele isayensi ebumbene nenkampani ukuqondisa izinqumo mayelana nokuvinjelwa umdlavuza. Abezindaba kumele benze umbiko ongcono womsebenzi futhi babheke izingxabano zentshisekelo ngemuva kwesayensi yenkampani. Isikhathi sokuqeda impi yenkampani yesayensi yomdlavuza.

ISan Francisco, Calif .; Mashi 5, 2018 - Ukulalelwa kwenkantolo yomfelandawonye eSan Francisco kuleli sonto kuzogqamisa isayensi ezungeze isibulala-zinambuzane esisetshenziswa kakhulu emhlabeni glyphosate, futhi sizonquma ukuthi abalimi nemindeni yabo bazokwazi yini ukuqhubeka nezinyathelo zomthetho kuMonsanto Co ngenxa yokukhathazeka ngomdlavuza.

Ngaphezu kwe Kusalindwe amacala angu-365 ngokumelene neMonsanto eNkantolo Yesifunda sase-US eSan Francisco, efakwe ngabantu abasola ukuthi ukutholakala kwe-Roundup herbicide kubangele bona noma abathandekayo babo ukuba bahlakulele i-non-Hodgkin lymphoma, nokuthi iMonsanto yahlanganisa izingozi.

Inkantolo ibize le micimbi kaMashi 5-9 ngokuthi “isonto lesayensi” ngoba ubufakazi obuzokwethulwa yibo kuphela obuzovela kochwepheshe besayensi yomdlavuza, kubandakanya izazi ze-epidemiologists, i-toxicologists, kanye nabahlaziyi bezibalo zezemvelo ababizelwe ukuhlaziya ucwaningo olufanele. Ososayensi bazokwethula ubufakazi babo obuhle kakhulu besayensi kuJaji wase-US uVince Chhabria, ozonquma ukuthi amacala aya phambili yini noma ayamiswa.

Intatheli nomlobi uCarey Gillam wase-US Right to Know uzobe ebhuloga bukhoma umcimbi osenkantolo. Landela okuthunyelwe kwakhe lapha: https://usrtk.org/live-updates-monsanto-hearing/

Bheka futhi: "IMonsanto ithi izibulala-zinambuzane zayo ziphephile: Manje inkantolo ifuna ukubona ubufakazi," nguCarey Gillam, The Guardian.

UGillam ungumbhali wencwadi ethi “Whitewash: The Story of a Weed Killer, Cancer and the Corruption of Science” (Isiqhingi Press, 2017) - “ukufundwa okunesibindi, okuphoqayo kusukela ekuqaleni kuze kube sekugcineni, ikakhulukazi kubafundi abathanda uhlobo lokubika okunzima, okwezicathulo zezicathulo okwakuwuphawu lobuntatheli obukhulu,” ngokusho kwe-Society for Environmental Journalists ' Ukubuyekezwa kweBhukuShelf.

Namuhla, uCarey Gillam, owayeyintatheli yeReuters futhi esengumqondisi ocwaningweni wamanje we-US Right to Know, wethule incwadi yakhe entsha, I-Whitewash: Indaba Yombulali Wokhula, Umdlavuza Nenkohlakalo Yesayensi (Island Press), uphenyo olunzima mayelana ne-pesticide enkabeni ye-maelstrom yokulawula nesemthethweni zombili izinhlangothi ze-Atlantic.

Kusasa, uGillam uzovela njengochwepheshe omenyiwe phambi kwamalungu ePhalamende laseYurophu e ukulalelwa kwekomidi ngokuhlanganyela ukuxoxa ngemizamo kaMonsanto yokusebenzisa isayensi nokuhlolwa kokulawulwa ku-glyphosate.

AmaGillam ibhuku futhi ubufakazi kusekelwe eminyakeni engu-20 yocwaningo kanye nemibhalo eminingi yezimboni echaza amaphethini enkohliso azungeze i-flagship killer killer Roundup kanye nesithako sayo esisebenzayo i-glyphosate, nemithelela kubantu nakwimvelo.

Ngokuvumelana ne Abashicileli Weekly, "UGillam ngobuchwepheshe uhlanganisa ingxabano lapho ukungaboni kahle kwezinkampani kuhlangana nezindaba zezempilo yomphakathi kanye nemvelo." Kirkus Izibuyekezo izingcingo I-Whitewash "Indaba eshaya kanzima, evula amehlo," kanye "nempikiswano enamandla yendawo yezomthetho ebeka izintshisekelo zomphakathi ngaphezu kwenzuzo yezinkampani."

As I-Whitewash imininingwane, i-glyphosate iyisayensi yezolimo esetshenziswa kakhulu emlandweni — isibulala-zinambuzane esigcwele kakhulu emoyeni wethu, emanzini, ekudleni kwethu, nasemizimbeni yethu uqobo. Sekungamashumi eminyaka kunconywa njengamakhemikhali “aphephe ngokwanele ukuthi angaphuzwa,” kepha iqembu elikhulayo locwaningo lwesayensi libopha i-glyphosate kuma-cancer kanye nezinye izinsongo zezempilo nezemvelo.

I-Whitewash ihlola izimangalo ezisemthethweni zezinkulungwane zabantu baseMelika abathi iRoundup idale umdlavuza wabo, futhi idalula ithonya elinamandla lomkhakha wezinkulungwane zamarandi osesebenze amashumi eminyaka ukugcina abathengi besebumnyameni nabalawulayo behlola. Le ncwadi iveza ukuthi ithonya lezepolitiki selisebenze kanjani iminyaka ezinhlanganweni ezilawulayo ngenkathi liphinde laveza amaqiniso angenakuphikisa ngamazinga e-glyphosate namanye ama-pesticides atholakala kakhulu emikhiqizweni yethu yokudla.

I-Whitewash kucacisa ukuthi eminyakeni engama-55 ngemuva kokuthi uRachel Carson noSilent Spring bevuse umhlaba ezingozini zokusetshenziswa kwezibulala-zinambuzane ezingavinjelwe, sehlulekile ukulalela izixwayiso zakhe.
