Commentary: Lies and fake science winning
This anti-biotech group is a big percentage of the total membership of the Prop 37 Right to Know campaign organization. And I reported last week, the campaign leadership decided to use a completely flawed fake science French study that claimed rats feed biotech corn developed exceedingly high rates of cancer tumors. The Right to Know campaign widely claimed this showed that biotech food are extremely dangerous to children and the general population. Scientists worldwide have denounced the study, conducted by an anti-biotech scientist.
So, using false information is a tactic, and those anti-biotech pro-Proposition 37 food labeling people are proud of how well they are spreading lies. They are extremely proud to hang their hat on false science that sounds reasonable to a normal mother and the general population. The false message sounds so good that the Right to Know campaign has announced it is using the message in television advertising.
Lies about food and agriculture seem to convert more and more of what we think of as an educated people, against conventional agriculture in the U.S.
One of the main groups trying to counter falsities is the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance by mainly conducting Food Dialogues where real farmers and ranchers take questions and explain the truth about U.S. agriculture. Maybe this can help, but it is for sure that green messages from the activists grab attention without question that the message is truthful.
