Are you aware of how Monsanto controls are food supply, owns the media, most of congress, the FDA and USDA?

Every time I read emails like this I feel sick. This needs to be shared with everyone we know.
This won’t come as a surprise to most of you: corporations go to great lengths to try to manipulate media, science and public opinion about the health risks of their products.

In the latest example of the sickly sweet influence Coca-Cola wields over the obesity debate: BMJ reports that industry paid to covertly influence journalists with the message that exercise is a bigger problem than sugar consumption in the obesity epidemic.

The article by Paul Thacker, based on documents obtained by U.S. Right to Know, reveals how Coca-Cola funded journalism conferences in an attempt to create favorable press coverage of sugar sweetened drinks. When challenged about funding of the series of conferences, the academics involved weren’t forthcoming about industry involvement.

Also see: •USRTK press release on the latest BMJ article
•October BMJ article about ties between Coke and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, also based in part on USRTK documents
•USRTK short report on journalists who failed to reveal sources funded by Coca-Cola (2015)
For more news on how the food and chemical corporations, their front groups, PR operatives and academics work together to promote industry propaganda, follow our investigation here.

More Bad News for Monsanto

Weed Killer in 30% of food tested in Canada
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has gone where the U.S. government dares not tread – testing thousands of foods for residues of a controversial herbicide linked to cancer. The agency said it found glyphosate in 47% of beans, peas and lentil products; 36% of grain products; and 31% of baby cereals, reports Carey Gillam.

Puppet master of science?
New documents posted in the glyphosate cancer lawsuits reveal more information about Monsanto's ghostwriting activities. We are posting new documents as they become public: bit.ly/2mJSyvq.

Examples include: •"Williams 2000 is but one of many papers written by Monsanto without disclosing authorship." (p. 9) bit.ly/2nM17mF #glyphosate

Glyphosate linked to pregnancy problems
Earlier this month, researchers reported the results of new research indicating that higher glyphosate levels in women correlated with significantly shorter pregnancies and with lower adjusted birth weights.

Cancer worries over a common weed killer
California’s environmental health agency has become the first American regulatory body to list glyphosate as a known carcinogen. More than 10 million pounds of glyphosate, the active ingredient in the weed killer Roundup, are applied in California each year, reports Mike McPhate in the New York Times.

Yeah, the problem of industry influence in Government and over the media has been with us for quite some time, and it's getting worse.
Misinformation and disinformation campaigns are running full tilt to sway public perceptions of industry products.
An obvious one of the past was the Tobacco industry's promotion of their products.
The fossil fuel industry does the same today.
Many, many others aren't quite as obvious, but do just as much damage.
It's why people can set fire to their tap water, and our foods are laced with unhealthy chemicals.
Regulations that protect consumers and the environment are being slashed to the bone as we speak.
Which is terrible, since they weren't adequate to begin with.
