Scientist defends WHO group report linking herbicide to cancer

File photo of activists protesting against the production of herbicides and GMO food products outside Monsanto headquarters in Creve CoeurA World Health Organization group's controversial finding that the world's most popular herbicide "probably is carcinogenic to humans" was based on a thorough scientific review and is a key marker in ongoing evaluations of the product, the scientist who led the study said Thursday. There was sufficient evidence in animals, limited evidence in humans and strong supporting evidence showing DNA mutations ... and damaged chromosomes," Aaron Blair, a scientist emeritus at the National Cancer Institute, said in an interview. Blair chaired the 17-member working group of the WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which rocked the agricultural industry on March 20 by classifying glyphosate as "probably" cancer-causing. Monsanto Co , which has built a $15 billion company on sales of glyphosate-based Roundup herbicide and crops genetically engineered to tolerate being sprayed with Roundup, has demanded a retraction and explanation from WHO.


Boston bombing jury told brothers used al Qaeda instructions

Handout of a still image from surveillance video of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar TsarnaevBy Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - An FBI explosives expert on Thursday told the Boston Marathon bombing trial jury about instructions in al Qaeda's "Inspire" magazine that prosecutors contend were used by two brothers to make bombs for the attack. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 21, is charged with killing three people and injuring 264 with a pair of homemade pressure-cooker bombs at the race's crowded finish line on April 15, 2013. Edward Knapp, a supervisory special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, read and described the instructions in court that show both how to build pipe bombs and pressure-cooker bombs. The bombs used in the attack, and others thrown at police during a gunfight in the suburb of Watertown, Massachusetts, were stuffed with explosives taken from fireworks, FBI chemistry specialist David McCollam testified on the 14th day of the trial.
