UN agency to Congress: Drop dead

CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen weighs in on the attempt by the International Agency for Research on Cancer to shut down sales and use of glyphosate despite numerous studies showing that the world's most commonly used herbicide does not cause cancer. Indeed, Driessen notes, even the process by which the IARC made its determination is fatally flawed.

Agitators, regulators, and predators on the prowl

CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen reports on the legal and political war against glyphosate -- a pesticide claimed to be a "possible" carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer despite repeated peer-reviewed studies showing the opposite is true. The IARC finding was exposed as fraudulent by two Reuters reporters, for ignoring contrary evidence, manufacturing evidence, and suppressing access to their "research."

U.S. funding dubious science and unfounded fear

Well-known researcher Ron Arnold reports on the cosy relationship between the Italian research group Ramazzini Institute and various federal agencies during the Obama Administration to classify glyphosate and other chemicals as carcinogenic while hiding research results that exonerated the chemical from such claims. The EPA's own scientists have disputed Ramazzini research on methanol -- and now we have learned that the International Agency for Research on Cancer's chief research deliberately withheld findings from studies of 89,000 U.S. farm workers and family members that showed no link between cancer and exposure to glyphosate.

“Roundup” the corrupt fear monger regulators

Environmental activists and government bureaucracies are today shameless as they falsify documents, hide research, mislead and obfuscate as they collude to fabricate a case against glyphosate (the key ingredient in Roundup) and thus subject farmers to further restrictions on their ability to provide food to the tables of the American people. Worldwide, these fear mongers have caused tens of millions of deaths from preventable and treatable diseases and from malnutrition.
