8:00 pm
very many many years you know we've had research throughout the decades and we had the international agency for research on cancer that said that there are dangerous and hazardous associated with this chemical and of type specifically to cancer and not hodgkin's lymphoma so it's definitely been the case independent scientists around the world i know that you follow the close the case very very closely and you have written this but over the years with each new scientific research showing hormone soundso work not to warn users or redesign its products but to create its own science to so that they were safe that's a pretty damning allegation can you elaborate on that yeah i mean it is and it's i also say in that article the damning information came largely from monsanto itself you know one set of own internal e-mails an internal communication strategy documents show how the company has worked very diligently not to you know to
8:01 pm
warn or to respond to evidence of our business with its products but to harass and censor scientists to try to discredit scientists and journalists and others who are simply trying to point out the risks you know that go along with the rewards of this chemical that's the evidence that the jury heard that's the evidence that was laid out in my book that that is the evidence amongst their own words that it's come to light what does this all mean then for the public's right to know going forward and protective regulations need to be put in place. right well i mean what that shows us very clearly is that our regulators in the united states and regulators in europe and elsewhere who you know largely just follow the lead of the industry of chemical company who are trying to sell a product for years they rely on the science that it's presented to them by the companies that rely on the assessments that these companies present to them and we
8:02 pm
really need an overhaul of that we need our regulators to look to independent published peer reviewed science and we need the industry science being a public it's only the companies though is it because we know that the environmental protection agency that is the e.p.a. it's also said in the past the a good life a state is safe when used carefully well yes of course and the bulk of the research that they have relied on to do that has been presented to them funded by fastow and others in the chemical industry all right so we will leave it there we thank you very much for speaking to us from australia you're watching the news grid and if you're watching us on facebook live you will find out how now rather about the prison inmates being paid next to nothing to help for. just a moment a lebanese politician pushing a bill that would legalize medical marijuana supporters of the proposal face could
