    Default U.S. lawmakers seek missing information in review of Monsanto weedkiller

    LONDON, (Reuters) - The chairman of a congressional committee has asked the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) to explain why its National Cancer Institute (NCI) failed to publish data that showed no links between glyphosate and cancer.
    In a Tuesday letter seen by Reuters, U.S. Representative Trey Gowdy, who chairs the House Committee on Government and Oversight Reform (OGR), said he "is concerned about the new revelations" and is "seeking more information" about why the exculpatory results were not published by the NCI.

    I need to think about this - it's a little confusing. But looking at the label, the US formulation of Roundup must be quite different to the one sold in Australia. The label above says rainproof in 10 ten minutes, and visible results in three hours. In Oz you are recommended to spray at least six hours before rain, and expect to see results from seven to ten days. That's a huge difference.

    Or perhaps one label is more accurate, and the other one is purely BS, usually due to political reasons.

    Well, the "new revelations" Congressman Gowdy is concerned about are contained in an "unpublished" study. I believe NCI was correct not to quote the results of an unpublished study. This is a case where I would encourage observers to "follow the money." Monsanto lobbyists are alive and well and all over Capitol Hill.
