Things that cause cancer are all around us, if you believe the news — how worried should we be?
QUOTE
The 2015 IARC report on glyphosate concluded that "glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans" and placed it in the category Group 2A — along with consuming red meat, drinking very hot beverages, and shift work that disrupts your circadian rhythm.

Glyphosate resurfaced in the news this year when a jury in a US court case declared the weed-killing product Roundup was a factor in causing a man's terminal cancer, and that the company Monsanto (now Bauer) failed to warn of its risks.

Despite the IARC using considered language, stating that there was "limited evidence in humans for the carcinogenicity of glyphosate" and that "a positive association has been observed for non-Hodgkin lymphoma", the looming shadow of a chemical giant can influence how people think about glyphosate and cancer.

Dr Lamberts said when it came to dealing with big corporations like Monsanto, "hardcore tribalism" often kicked in.

"Monsanto is cast as the nasty company that doesn't give a toss about anyone else. Which means that any negative stuff [about glyphosate and cancer] is going to be believed and amplified," he said...

Nufarm: Why buy Nufarm?
- Blake Henricks, Firetrail Investments:

QUOTE
Why buy Nufarm? ,..........
......... Industry consolidation and Omega 3.

Nufarm has become undervalued because of the Australian drought and their distribution of a specific weed killer commonly used in crops. The company has had two stumbles, but Mr Henricks believes it presents great value at today's prices. The industry is now more consolidated than the Australian banking market. That means Nufarm can take organic market share as competitors are distracted doing M&A, in short, Nufarm is a beneficiary of industry consolidation.

Nufarm has a technology which earns nothing today but is worth $1 billion according to Firetrail. Humans rely on small fish as a source of Omega 3, growing around 6 per cent per annum. Henricks expects no increase in ocean based supply of Omega 3 because of over-fishing. But it can now be grown from plant-based canola and Nufarm can take 20 per cent market share of that supply gap.

Most of the regulatory approvals have come through, and it is trading on less than seven times EV to EBITDA today because the market has over-reacted to the drought and glyphosate concerns. One of the great strategies is to buy in drought and sell in rain, Mr Henricks said. He strongly believes Nufarm is well placed around all reasonable scenarios related to glyphosate outcomes.

Valuation of $10.40.

QUOTE
(Bloomberg) -- Bayer AG failed to persuade a California state judge to set aside a jury’s verdict in the first trial over allegations that its Roundup weed killer causes cancer, but the judge said damages should be slashed to $78.6 million from $289 million.

San Francisco Superior Court Judge Suzanne Ramos Bolanos on Monday rejected Bayer’s arguments that the jury didn’t have any basis to conclude that the herbicide caused a former school groundskeeper’s cancer.

The decision isn’t a legal precedent for thousands of related lawsuits across the U.S., but it will encourage plaintiffs to press forward with their claims. Bayer said it plans to appeal the ruling.

For Bayer, the ruling “is not good news,” said Thomas G. Rohback, a trial lawyer who isn’t involved in the Roundup litigation. “From Bayer’s perspective the bigger concern is it’s saying there was enough science to support the plaintiff’s case.”

Calls for inquiry after Four Corners report on Monsanto and glyphosate chemical, Roundup
QUOTE
The Federal Opposition has moved for a Senate inquiry into the independence of Australia's agricultural chemical regulator after Four Corners raised questions over how it is funded.
But the Federal Government said the call was purely political and stands by the independence of the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA).

ABC Four Corners story tonight on glyphosate

QUOTE
Cancer Council calls for review of weed killer Roundup
Most home gardeners will have a container of the weed killer Roundup in the shed.

Its active ingredient, glyphosate, is the most commonly used herbicide on the planet.

A Four Corners investigation has revealed the chemical hasn't been formally reviewed by the Australian regulator in more than two decades.

That's despite glyphosate being classified as a "probable human carcinogen" by the World Health Organisation's cancer agency in 2015.

And you can see more on that story tonight on Four Corners.

According to this article -> More Capital, But Risks Still Pervade For Nufarm

QUOTE
A multitude of risks beset Nufarm and, in downgrading forecasts, several brokers suggest it may take time for the stock to re-rate.

-A return to growth expected as recent initiatives are progressed
-Europe projected to reach 45% of group operating earnings in FY19
-Glyphosate regulatory issues may linger


QUOTE
Sumitomo, the company's largest shareholder, has elected not to participate in the rights issue. Bell Potter suspects this may cause the market to shift its view, to Sumitomo being a seller rather than a suitor for the business, and result in a potential stock overhang. Deutsche Bank agrees the fact Sumitomo did not take up its entitlement could create a dampener for the stock.

AFR reporting - Nufarm's brokers seek buyers for $75m shortfall - that's a fair chunk and that's just for the institutional portion - retail still to come
