    Thank you for this. We are farmers (organic) and are dismayed by the disinformation campaigns about this and glyphosate. This information needs to be circulating on National Public Radio in the US. The program, “Science Friday” treats those who fear the environmental consequences of gmo’s as paranoid, and lumps them in the same camp as climate deniers. One of the tactics used by Monsanto (Bayer) is to donate funds to public universities. Because we, in the US, have underfunded land-grant universities, agriculture departments come to rely on this funding. The deans of these departments then discourage researchers from making “controversial statements” that could from jeopardize this funding. Professors are also valued by how much money they bring in through grants for research. Only certain research is “appealing” to such industry donors. A third way that industry funders massage the available data is that industry will fund research into potentially unflattering studies, and then, when the research is getting close to revealing said unflattering results, industry will pull the funding before the study can be finished and results published. I know of two examples of this behavior at landgrants.
    Thanks again for bringing this to light.
