GMO corporations pervert government oversight - conflicts of interest

The GMO corporations and their army of internet and Chem Trolls is at it again, distorting the science and the facts of the matter concerning industrial GMO manipulations of the food chain.

The GMO corporations continue to undermine the integrity and honesty of science. No wonder so many people have ceased trusting science, since Corporate Science, Inc. has so perverted it.

What GMO corps have done to the reputation of science is criminal. Read and weep:

"A letter from academics, non-profits and farmer groups indicts the lack of balance, perspective and independence among so-'experts' chosen to carry out a new taxpayer-funded National Academy study.

"The study will advise the federal government on how to overhaul regulations concerning GMOs—including novel biotechnology products developed using synthetic biology and other techniques, such as DNA "editing".

"The new study is being conducted by the National Research Council’s (NRC) Committee on Future Biotechnology Products and Opportunities to Enhance Capabilities of the Biotechnology Regulatory System.

"Despite a federal law that prohibits biased committees with conflicts of interests, two committee members (out of 13) are industry employees, six have conflicts of interest and no representatives of consumer, farmer or public interest groups have been included by the Academy.

1. Independent Science News?

 

A "science" site run by the Bioscience Resource Project (which is run by Jonathan Latham & Allison Wilson), a bunch of anti-science nutters. Getting science news from quacks who reject the idea that genes can be the common causes of illnesses and disease is ensuring one will not stay informed about advancements in science. Strange that someone who calls themselves "Scientific" would rely on such an unscientific source for science news.

2. So you approve of the financial conflicts of interest benefiting GMO corporations

...and seek to divert attention away from this perversion of science by attacking the messenger.

Typical.

5. It's orwellian doublespeak that would make Frank Luntz proud.

Want to sound authoritative while you spew nonsense? Why, then pick a username that's connotative of knowledge.
