GMO pushers' corporate links exposed
A new report, "Spinning food”, investigates how Big Food and agrochemical corporations are deliberately misleading the public - and reporters - on facts about industrial agriculture and organic and sustainable food production.
The report, published by Friends of the Earth, shows that the industrial food sector has spent hundreds of millions of dollars over the past few years on stealth PR tactics and deployed over a dozen front groups to push coordinated messages to attack organic food, defend pesticides and the routine use of antibiotics, and promote GMOs - messages that are making their way, day after day, to the pages of the largest media outlets.
The report also exposes the ties to corporations and corporate front groups of pro-GMO individuals and groups that will be familiar to GMWatch readers, including Jon Entine, the Genetic Literacy Project, GMOAnswers, and Academics Review. Highly recommended.
