Can you describe your family cancer history … your eating, exercise and sleeping habits … how much you eat high-fat foods … how often you eat fruits and vegetables … and your other lifestyle choices that doctors and other experts now know play significant roles in whether or not people get cancer?
How many times in your life [Johnson is 47 years old; Hardeman 70; Alva Pilliod 77; Alberta Pilliod 75] do you estimate you were exposed to substances on IARC’s list of Group 1 definite human carcinogens –including sunlight, acetaldehyde in alcoholic beverages, aflatoxin in peanuts, asbestos, cadmium in batteries, lindane … or any of the 125 other substances and activities in Group 1? Have you ever smoked? How often have you been exposed to secondhand smoke? How often have you eaten bacon, sausage or other processed meats – which are also in Group 1?
How many times have you been exposed to any of IARC’s Group 2A probable human carcinogens – not just glyphosate … but also anabolic steroids, creosote, diazinon, dieldrin, malathion, emissions from high-temperature food frying, shift work … or any of the 75 other substances and activities in Group 2A? How often have you consumed beef or very hot beverages – likewise in Group 2A?
How many times have you been exposed to any of IARC’s Group 2B possible human carcinogens – including bracken ferns, chlordane, diesel fuel, fumonisin, inorganic lead, low frequency magnetic fields, malathion, parathion, titanium oxide in white paint, pickled vegetables, caffeic acid in coffee, tea, apples, broccoli, kale, and other fruits and vegetables … … or any of the 200 other substances and activities in Group 2B?
Pyrethrin pesticides used by organic farmers are powerful neurotoxins that are very toxic to bees, cats and fish – and have been linked by EPA and other experts to leukemia and other cancers and other health problems. How often have you eaten organic foods and perhaps been exposed to pyrethrins?
Large quantities of glyphosate have been manufactured for years in China and other countries. How do you know the glyphosate you were exposed to was manufactured by Bayer, and not one of them?
In view of all these exposures, please explain how you, your doctors, your lawyers and the experts you consulted concluded that none of your family history … none of your lifestyle choices … none of your exposures to dozens or even hundreds of other substances on IARC’s lists of carcinogens … caused or contributed to your cancer – and that your cancer is due solely to your exposure to glyphosate.
Put another way, please explain exactly how you and your experts separated and quantified all these various exposures and lifestyle decisions – and concluded that Roundup from Bayer-Monsanto was the sole reason you got cancer – and all these other factors played no role whatsoever.
Comment by Charles Anderson:
Modern society with its rich choices of values and its high level of security is highly dependent on a huge number of chemicals. There are also an abundance of naturally occurring chemical in our environment. In many cases, a chemical necessary for the support of human life is beneficial only when it has the correct balance in our complex human system. Too much of it or too little of it can cause the human system to fail. Many chemicals will become harmful if they are too concentrated in the human body and many such over-concentrated chemicals are carcinogenic. Whether a given chemical is beneficial or carcinogenic or otherwise harmful depends highly upon its concentration. It can be devilishly difficult to establish the bounds within which a chemical is beneficial in the body and beyond which it is harmful.
This has proven very difficult for the FDA for instance in regard to the safety of many widely and commonly eaten foods even. Study after study has taken a conclusion opposite to that of a prior study once held in high regard by the FDA.
Our ability to measure chemicals in complex mixtures to very low concentrations such as parts per trillion means we can find a host of chemicals in the human body or in the foods we eat. The fact that a chemical that can be harmful in higher concentration is present does not at all mean that it will cause any harm at a lower concentration. The toxicity of a chemical, or for that matter of radiation, is highly dose dependent. For instance, selenium is an element beneficial to the body at a suitably low concentration. It is often found in multi-vitamin tablets. Yet, selenium at higher concentrations is very toxic. There are many other elements which have similar toxicity characteristics. Examples are potassium, sodium, chromium, iron, molybdenum, and zinc. Even water is toxic if it becomes too concentrated in the human body. People have died because they drank too much water too rapidly.
Juries and the courts are often too subject to findings that a chemical exposure has caused the disease that some unfortunate person has suffered. They are emotionally sorry for the suffering. They are often biased against for-profit companies. They ogle the deeper pockets of a company than those of the suffering person as an easy means to help the suffering person. Unfortunately, much injustice results. By soaking an often very innocent company with fines and penalties, many people are hurt. The company management, the owners, the employees, the companies customers, and oftentimes the companies’ retirees are all hurt. The fact that members of a jury, defense lawyers, and judges often do not know very much about science is also a great problem. Juries and courts need to be much more rational and much more responsible.
I have served as an expert witness on scientific issues involved in court cases, as have some of my Ph.D. scientist employees at my laboratory, Anderson Materials Evaluation, Inc. I have encountered numerous opposing expert witnesses who were ridiculously creative in the stories they told about the science pertaining to the case. Unfortunately, juries and judges tend to understand little of what the experts tell them and as is the case with most people and the catastrophic man-made global warming hypothesis, they make their judgment based on a count of experts on each side. In a litigation case, the count is usually even, so the scientific testimonies cancel out. Sometimes they also assume that the company is better able to buy the favorable testimony of an expert and so their expert is more likely to be lying about the science. The jury decision is then made on the basis of human emotions. The suffering person is likely to win and the company is likely to lose. This is not a valid process for achieving a just result.
