Monsanto says 'expert panel' to review WHO finding on cancer link to herbicide| Reuters

Monsanto Co ( MON.N ), maker of one of the world's most widely used herbicides Roundup, said Tuesday that a panel of scientific experts will review the findings of a World Health Organisation cancer research unit that found the key ingredient in Roundup is "probably carcinogenic to humans." The WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancers (IARC) said in March that it came to the conclusion that the key ingredient known as glyphosate was probably cancer-causing after reviewing a range of scientific literature. [ID:nL2N0WM2I4] But Monsanto immediately called for a retraction and called the findings by the team of international IARC scientists "junk science." [ID:nL2N0WP0UM] On Tuesday, Monsanto said it has asked the Intertek Scientific & Regulatory Consultancy to convene a panel of internationally recognised scientific experts to conduct the review of IARC's work. The experts include medical doctors, cancer experts, and individuals who hold doctoral degrees and who are specialists in public health, Monsanto said. #science #markets #United Kingdom #Pollution #events

Images show Chinese airstrip on man-made Spratly island nearly finished | Reuters

China has almost finished building a 3,000-metre-long (10,000-foot) airstrip on one of its artificial islands in the disputed Spratly archipelago of the South China Sea, new satellite photographs of the area show. A U.S. military commander had told Reuters in May that the airstrip on Fiery Cross Reef could be operational by year-end, although the June 28 images suggest that could now be sooner #United States #Europe #Foreign policy #chinese #events
