During the war BAYER became the biggest German explosives producer, the company also manufactured gas masks. Due to a price guarantee by the government, profits were elevated to undreamt of heights. Also during the Third Reich research into chemical war gases was carried out in BAYER laboratories. The inventor of SARIN and TABUN, Dr. Gerhard Schrader, became head of the BAYER pesticides department after WW II.
As researchers we often look to documents to shed new light on issues important to food policy. Sometimes, they simply reflect what we already know.
That’s the case with one new communication string that adds to evidence of a far-reaching strategy by food industry players to discredit and diminish the world’s leading cancer research agency. We’ve already seen documents from Monsanto and other chemical industry interests laying out plans to tear apart the credibility of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) because of its classification of Monsanto’s weed killer glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen.
Now we see evidence that other food industry players are part of the scheme; working to head off potentially damaging IARC scrutiny of food additives such as aspartame, sucralose, and more.
The email of intrigue was obtained through a state open records request. It shows communication between James Coughlin, a one-time scientist for Kraft General Foods Inc. who operates a food and “nutritional” consulting business, and Timothy Pastoor, a retired toxicologist with the agrochemical giant Syngenta AG who now runs his own “science communications” business. Also included on a portion of the email string is Monsanto PR man Jay Byrne, who runs a “reputation management” and public relations business, and Douglas Wolf, a former Environmental Protection Agency scientist now with Syngenta.
In the October 2016 email, Coughlin tells Pastoor how he’s been “fighting IARC forever!!” dating back to his time at Kraft. He relates the time he spent criticizing the international cancer agency to a U.S. House of Representatives staffer who was coordinating an effort to strip U.S. funding from IARC.
And then, articulating the deep fear the food industry holds for the cancer agency, he gets to the meat of the matter: “IARC is killing us!” he writes. The 2-page string can be found here.
The British Medical Journal published a study that says eating sh*tty processed foods cause cancer.
Researchers in Paris studies the medical record of 10,000 adults and cross referenced their intake of food items — amounting to more than 3,000, and found that foods such as processed cakes, chicken nuggets, mass produced bread, soda, confectionary and processed meat increased risks of getting cancer.
In fact, it showed that as little as a 10% increase in consuming this sh*tty foods led to a 12% bump in cancer.
Naturally, processed food fags are having a f*cking stroke over this and are in hyper-shill mode trying to kill the story. The common rebuttal is ‘urging caution’ and reminding normies to have a ‘balanced diet’ while also advertising Dorito flavored Taco Bell cancer bombs.
Processed foods amount to a staggering 50% of the average person’s diet in several western countries — such as ‘Merica.
“If confirmed in other populations and settings, these results suggest that the rapidly increasing consumption of ultra-processed foods may drive an increasing burden of cancer in the next decades,” the researchers said.
Here is the absolute state of Cancer Research U.K.:
“People shouldn’t worry about eating a bit of processed food here and there based on this study. There is good evidence that too little fruit, vegetables and fiber and too much processed and red meat in our diets can contribute to the development of some types of cancer,” Linda Bauld, Cancer Research U.K.’s prevention expert, said in an email.
“Eating a balanced diet, avoiding junk food and maintaining a healthy weight are things we can all do to help stack the odds in our favor,” she added.
In other words, keep eating MCD and frozen tendies, in spite of the fact researchers found a marked increase in cancer rates in people in a LARGE DATA SET, rubber stamped by a cancer prevention ‘expert’ who probably gets grants by General Mills.
