    Default Silencing the Scientist: Tyrone Hayes on Being Targeted By Herbicide Firm Syngenta


    We speak with a University of California scientist Tyrone Hayes, who discovered a widely used herbicide may have harmful effects on the endocrine system. But when he tried to publish the results, the chemical's manufacturer launched a campaign to discredit his work. Hayes was first hired in 1997 by a company, which later became agribusiness giant Syngenta, to study their product, Atrazine, a pesticide that is applied to more than half the corn crops in the United States, and widely used on golf courses and Christmas tree farms. When Hayes found results Syngenta did not expect -- that Atrazine causes sexual abnormalities in frogs, and could cause the same problems for humans -- it refused to allow him to publish his findings. A new article in The New Yorker magazine uses court documents from a class-action lawsuit against Syngenta to show how it sought to smear Hayes' reputation and prevent the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency from banning the profitable chemical, which is already banned by the European Union.

    This is the typical modus operandi of the medical mafia. I am so glad these cockroaches are being exposed more and more.

    Sygenta AG isn't a medical corporation. Do you ever get anything right?
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Where does she state Sygenta AG is a medical corporation? One can liken tactics used by one group to another without claiming they are of the same group. Are you ever anything but a PITA?

    Yeah, but she didn't.

    Why is this in general politics. exactly? Why isn't it in the rather extensive thread that already exists about this guy?

    Pharmaceutical giants Novartis and AstraZeneca formed Syngenta, from the agrochemical and seed divisions of Novartis and the agrochemicals and biotechnology research divisions of AstraZeneca, and spun it off. Syngenta is the world’s second biggest player in agrochemicals and the third biggest seed producer. [23][24]

    When I start threads, I don't attention-whore by purposely putting them in the wrong forum and then repeatedly bump them in a desperate plea for attention. This is not a political thread, and this topic does not belong here.

    No I wouldn't, because I freaking hate self-righteous undeservingly smug idiots and make no attempt to hide that fact.


    But you could rest assured that if I were in office, I wouldn't be presenting ideas about fixing the roads in education reform forums just because more people visited the education forums.

    And I wouldn't put together a new committee every time some new bit of information emerged.

    I like to be organized.
