Updates on Glyphosate Courthouse Hearings

PRI- Public Radio International (the print section) picked up my story (originally published by Civil Eats) on glyphosate hearings which sent it to the top listing for news on "glyphosate" in Google search this morning.

In other news, the story continues. I spent the day yesterday at the courthouse again as Judge Chhabria got a master class on the finer points of epidemiology with Dr. Beatrice Ritz of UCLA.

You can read basic coverage of the day here. from Courthouse News, (which sent the only other reporter  in the room).

Chhabria had a lot of questions about latency - what is the relationship between exposure and symptoms?  Ritz explained to him that latency varies, depending on a number of variables, including age.

I'll write more about this later today. In the meantime, you can read the transcript here.
