Isn’t that kind of the least you should expect from your government?

Courtesy of CBS:

The Trump administration has told companies not to warn customers about products that contain glyphosate, a decision targeted at a California regulation that requires labels to warn consumers that the Roundup ingredient is potentially cancer-causing.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says it will no longer approve labels warning glyphosate is known to cause cancer. The chemical, marketed as a weed killer by Monsanto under the brand Roundup, is currently the focus of lawsuits from thousands of consumers alleging it caused their cancers.

Such labels are “irresponsible,” EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler said in a statement. He cited the EPA’s conclusions that the chemical doesn’t represent a cancer risk.

Gee what a surprise, Trump’s EPA did not find that there was a problem with a chemical in a product that makes its company hundreds of million dollars a month. 

You know somthing like that could be bad fro business. 

But here’s the problem:

Since Bayer bought Roundup maker Monsanto in June 2018, the company has lost three high-profile court cases that alleged the chemical caused cancer.

You know maybe it is just me, but if there is a chance that something might possibly cause cancer, I fucking want to know about it. 

And by the way, does the EPA even have scientists employed there anymore?

    Grover Norquist’s dreams of the government being small enough to drown in a bathtub are coming true under Trump. He is so pleased. The scientists in all of the departments are very demoralized due to the fact that the work they are doing in marginalized or just trashed. Why would anyone stay in a job where the things they do are not deemed worthy. Look for many more of our smartest and most capable people leaving in droves. This will take decades to undo, if we even can….

    How much money has been promised by Bayer for the “re-election” and his GOP enablers and wanna-be enablers.
