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.

Taxpayers forced to fund anti-chemical activism

CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen recounts how the National Institutes for Environmental Health Sciences has colluded with radicalized international agencies, anti-chemical pressure groups, and trial lawyers to undermine the U.S. regulatory process. Congress is now investigating and may sanction the International Agency for Research on Cancer, Italy's Ramazzini Institute, and other fear mongers who have sabotaged sound science with spurious claims backed by lawsuits.

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.
