The boast was made during an April 2015 phone conversation, according to farmers and others who say they’ve been sickened by the weed killer. After leaving his job as a manager in the EPA’s pesticide division last year, Jess Rowland has become a central figure in more than 20 lawsuits in the U.S. accusing the company of failing to warn consumers and regulators of the risk that its glyphosate-based herbicide can cause non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
My Commentary: Conspiracy theory? Meddling Russians? Quick, mainstream media monopoly! Tell me who’s to blame for this fake news story, and which government agency to rely on for solutions, so I can resume life in my comfort zone of unquestioning complacency and consumerism!
(Deena Shanker) The food industry has funded research in an effort to influence nutrition science and health policy for more than half a century, new research out Monday has found.
It’s no secret that industry funds such efforts today: An investigation in June, for example, showed how the National Confectioners Association worked with a nutrition professor at Louisiana State University to conclude that kids who eat sugar are thinner than those who don’t.
An article by University of California-San Francisco researchers, published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine, shows how far back such efforts go: In 1965, the Sugar Research Foundation, the precursor to today’s Sugar Association, paid Harvard scientists to discredit a link now widely accepted among scientists—that consuming sugar can raise the risk of cardiovascular disease. Instead, the industry and the Harvard scientists pinned the blame squarely, and only, on saturated fat.
“Michelle Catlin @CatlinNya: ‘Adolph Hitler is the story of a failed liberal arts student who blamed in on ethnicities he deemed privileged.'”
Daniel Sv.: Funny how Jewish people who are some of the brightest in the world were portrayed as having inferior and polluted blood. An example of projecting your flaws on people you resented.
Jason R.: and I believe Hitler was of jewish descent too, which is interesting. everyone needs to accept who they are without looking at other people.
Daniel Sv.: I heard about that. Apparently his grandmother was a maid who at one time worked for a rich Jewish industrialist. She was pregnant shortly after and gave birth to Hitler’s father. She wouldn’t reveal the patrimony, so people assumed she was impregnated by the industrialist’s son.
When Hitler was campaigning for chancellor, this rumor came up in the newspapers. Hitler asked his lawyer Hans Frank (who later became the brutal ruler of Poland) to investigate. He came back saying that the possibility of it being true was 50/50.
From then on, Hitler’s anti-semitism became almost psychotic. A sort of lashing out against the people that denied him being part of the “master race”. One source I read even stated that it was a driving factor for the Holocaust. The other Nazis were anti-semitic, but were content enough to deport the Jews. Hitler was the one who wanted to murder them all and inspired his inner circle to follow him to this end.
