Stanford False Organic Food Study Shocking Ulterior Motive Revealed

Stanford False Organic Food Study Ulterior Motive Revealed

In the study from Stanford University that stirred up a media fervor regarding the value of organic foods, investigators have discovered that one of the coauthors has deep ties to the tobacco industry’s anti-science propaganda efforts.

Additionally, these investigators from Natural News and Natural Society discovered that Stanford has been found to have substantial ties to Cargill, which is a company entrenched in the fight in California against a GMO labeling proposition in the upcoming election.

The mass media was enthralled with this report and began calling organic foods into question. The Alternative Daily published a rebuttal to those findings where the motives of the so-called study were called into question.

Now, Natural News and Natural Society have completely exposed the ulterior motives behind the Stanford report and it’s shocking. You can read the Natural News and Natural Society’s discovery in full here.

Stanford False Organic Food Study Ulterior Motive RevealedDistorted Statistics

Ingram Olkin was one of the chief statisticians behind big tobacco’s claims that cigarettes pose little to no harm to humans. Working for Stanford University as head of the Department of Statistics, Olkin developed a multivariate algorithm that is used to distort statistical information to support junk science. The mathematical formula is a statistical model that supports results that do not conform to reality, but instead support convenient “truths,” that are, in fact, lies.

This mathematical formula has become known as the “Dr. Ingram Olkin multivariation Logistic Risk Function.” It was used extensively by large tobacco companies to claim that smoking cigarettes pose no health risks to humans and to attack whistleblowers and critics of the industry.

Olkin was hired by the tobacco industry to deliberately disseminate invalid scientific information in support of their industry. Additionally, he was paid to falsely testify in front of Congress regarding the safety of tobacco products.

Anti-GMO Politics at Work

NaturalNews and Nautral Society’s findings discovered that Stanford University has received higher levels of donations from Cargill and Monsanto than any other university or college. Donations from these two companies rack up to more than half a billion dollars in 2009 alone. These are the same two companies who, along with others, have poured millions upon millions of dollars into efforts to fight Proposition 37 in California, the proposition in support of mandatory GMO labels for genetically altered foods.

George H. Poste is one of the leaders in the fight against Proposition 37. He is also a board member for Monsanto and a Distinguished Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and a former member of the Defense Science Board of the U.S. Department of Defense.

To help with plans to expand Stanford’s Center on Food Security and the Environment, the university accepted a donation of $5 million from Cargill. Keep in mind that “food security” is often a commonly used euphemism for genetically altered crops and that most of the research conducted through this facility supports development and use of GMO agriculture.

Unfortunately, most media outlets have done little to critically examine the research results out of Stanford University in regard to this study. Instead, they have swallowed junk science, hook, line and sinker. Stanford should not be buying into the political fight over GMO labeling. And shame on the media for getting in line and joining in the party.

Do you support GMO labeling? What do you think about the use of junk science by industry to support use of their products?
