Either an interesting Critical Reading exercise or a complete waste of time.

So this article popped up in my newsfeed this morning.


And as I read it, I was struck how it was reluctantly complementary of a PCRM research article. And how it was critical of PCRM in general.

After reading it I was interested to find out what the Genetic Literacy Project is. At first they seem to be legit. But a deeper dive revealed they are "a corporate front group that was formerly funded by Monsanto."

"Its executive director is Jon Entine who promotes GMOs. Bloomberg and The Progressive have reported that lawyers suing Monsanto state in court documents that companies funnel money to the Genetic Literacy Project in order to "shame scientists and highlight information helpful to Monsanto and other chemical producers."[2][3]"
