"Newly released court documents show that Monsanto has been accused of using third-parties to hire an army of internet trolls to post positive comments on websites and social media about Monsanto, its chemicals and GMOs, and downplay the potential safety risks surrounding the company’s popular glyphosate herbicide.

The unsealed court documents are from the ongoing Monsanto Roundup litigation in Northern California before U.S. District Court Judge Vince Chhabria. The docs were posted by U.S. Right to Know, nonprofit organization working for transparency and accountability in our nation’s food system.

Hundreds of people from California and across the United States have filed Roundup cancer lawsuits against Monsanto, alleging that exposure to Roundup weed killer caused them or their loved ones to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Dozens of these cases were consolidated in a multidistrict litigation (MDL) before Judge Chhabria. Other lawsuits with similar allegations have been filed in several other state courts as well. Roundup cancer attorneys anticipate thousands of people filing suit against Monsanto over the link between Roundup and cancer." (More)
