Dr. Chadi Nabhan is an oncologist who testified as an expert witness in the first three litigation trials against Monsanto and their potentially cancer-causing herbicide Roundup.
He chats with Dr. Anthony Gustin about all the “courtroom drama” and research he uncovered.
Roundup is the most common weed killer in the world. Glyphosate (the active ingredient) taints our soil, waterways, and food — it’s even in 97% of people’s urine.
Dr. Nabhan specializes in Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a disease in which malignant cancer cells form in the lymph system. He explains Roundup’s link to cancer and other health conditions and why the courts have been ruling plaintiffs billions of dollars in damages.
