Environmentalist anti-pesticide and anti-vaccine campaigns are the beneficiaries of media misinformation which is the conclusion of a commentary posted at the American Center for Science and Health’s website. One green organization that joins in to both campaigns is the Environmental Work Group who is notorious for issuing false reports and statments on GMO’s. vaccines, and pesticides. Media outlets, like The Guardian, have been known to collude and even benefit from it monetarily. From the article:
“Moving on, CNN ran a naive article just two weeks ago about the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen, warning consumers that they should “Eat organic when possible” to avoid foods “contaminated” with pesticides, though there is no evidence to support such a recommendation. The story also included expert quotes from Healthy Babies Bright Futures, an advocacy group that needlessly scares parents about the alleged dangers of heavy-metal tainted baby food, and Leonardo Trasande, a pediatrician who has authored questionable research about the risks of exposure to common chemicals.
CNN included a short “industry response” from CropLife, a trade group that represents pesticide manufacturers. But it didn’t bother contacting an independent scientist who would have happily made mincemeat of EWG’s claims, and any number of experts would have volunteered for the job. The average reader, though, was given none of this vital context.
Not to be outdone, The Guardian continues to give a platform to anti-pesticide activist Carey Gillam, who insists, contra the evidence, that Monsanto (now owned by Bayer) tried to bury research showing that its weedkiller Roundup causes cancer. It’s also crucial to note that US Right to Know (USRTK), Gillam’s employer, is funded by the Organic Consumers Association, an anti-GMO group that rejects COVID-19 vaccines. This is the same Guardian that sought and received over $800,000 from an animal rights group in 2017 to run a series of slanted articles about livestock farming.”
Not surprisingly, Tides Foundation head, Drummond Pike, is on the board of the Environmental Work Group. The same Tides Foundation founded in the 1970’s that the left uses to launder money for their causes. What better way to kill humans off (other than environmentalists of course) than to lie about things like vaccines, pesticides, and GMO’s that help sustain and enhance people’s lives? Worst of all, environmentalists earn money doing it.
