  • Many of the front groups have names designed to inspire confidence, like the International Food Additives Council, the American Council for Science and Health and the Center for Consumer Freedom
  • Front groups and paid, faux "experts" defeated California's Prop 37 in 2012 — a measure that would have required labeling of GMOs and prevented them from being called "natural"
  • A new book, “The Triumph of Doubt: Dark Money and the Science of Deception,” by David Michaels, assistant secretary of labor for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, exposes the wide racket of paid, false science
