13:39 EDTMONMonsanto addresses assessment on glyphosate by IARC
Monsanto Company further addressed last week’s assessment on glyphosate by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. “We are outraged with this assessment,” said Dr. Robb Fraley, Monsanto’s Chief Technology Officer. “This conclusion is inconsistent with the decades of ongoing comprehensive safety reviews by the leading regulatory authorities around the world that have concluded that all labeled uses of glyphosate are safe for human health. This result was reached by selective ‘cherry picking’ of data and is a clear example of agenda-driven bias.” The repeated safety assessments by regulatory authorities over the last three decades have formed the foundation for the long history of safe, highly effective use of this important agricultural tool in more than 160 countries around the world. Decisions regarding product safety and approvals for pesticides are governed by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the European Commission, as well as independent scientific advisory bodies such as the European Food Safety Authority. IARC has no regulatory authority and its decision does not impact glyphosate’s label, current registration or use. “Safety is the top priority for every person who works at Monsanto. Glyphosate-based herbicides on the market meet the rigorous standards set by the regulatory and health authorities who work every day to protect human health, and we want our customers and consumers to be assured of these evaluations,” Fraley added. In contrast to the comprehensive review that regulators around the world have completed over three decades, IARC issued its classification based on a limited data review after hours of discussion at a one-week meeting. Further, IARC is one of four programs within the WHO that have reviewed the safety of glyphosate and their classification is inconsistent with the assessments of the other programs. Two of the WHO programs – the Core Assessment Group and the International Programme on Chemical Safety – both concluded glyphosate is not carcinogenic. The WHO Guidelines for Drinking-Water Quality program concluded glyphosate does not represent a hazard to human health.

06:22 EDTDDDuPont 'strongly recommends' holders to vote the WHITE proxy card
DuPont announced that it has filed definitive proxy materials with the SEC in connection with DuPont's Annual Meeting of Shareholders, which is scheduled to be held on May 13. DuPont shareholders of record as of the close of business on March 17 will be entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting. The DuPont board strongly recommends that shareholders vote on the WHITE proxy card "FOR" all 12 of DuPont's directors. In conjunction with the definitive proxy filing, DuPont is mailing a letter to shareholders detailing the significant progress and accomplishments achieved under the leadership of the DuPont board and management team. The letter also addresses Trian Fund Management's high risk agenda for DuPont to break itself up and add excessive debt to the company, which the DuPont board has carefully reviewed and determined would destroy value.
