It is now public knowledge that the co-author of the Stanford study claiming that organic food is the ‘same as conventional’ has massive ties to Big Tobacco, is the very creator of a complex algorithm that allows one to ‘lie with statistics’, and worked deeply with an organization that paid off media organizations and journalists to promote pro-tobacco propaganda in the 60s and 70s. It has also come out that Stanford has been the recipient of massive financial support on behalf of Cargill – a massive food insutry giant that has openly supported Monsanto’s biotechnology with millions in funding to defeat GMO labeling.
Along with Mike Adams, the Health Ranger of NaturalNews.com, we have launched a Change.org petition to set the record straight on this study and its deceptive influence on consumers worldwide. I highly encourage you to sign this petition, share it with your friends on Facebook or however you’d like, and help to garner attention for it. The reason that we launched this petition is simple: the disinformation brought upon by this flawed study is causing individuals to choose health-wrecking conventional foods full of GMOs, mercury, and other contaminants over high quality organics.
We will be openly calling out the mainstream media to cover this petition, what it presents, and to get the facts straight on this issue. We are also asking Stanford why they currently allow the author of the study to continue authoring studies after creating the infamous “multivariate” statistical algorithm, which is essentially a way to lie with statistics (or to confuse people with junk science). Amazingly, it was this formula that ultimately became known as the “Dr. Ingram Olkin multivariate Logistic Risk Function” and it was a key component in Big Tobacco’s use of garbage science to attack whistleblowers and attempt to claim cigarettes are perfectly safe.
Organic Study Deception
The outside issues of course, are in addition to the fact that the study itself has inherent flaws. Not only does the study openly admit that organic foods have lower pesticide levels, lower incidents of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and so on, but it also fails to even take a look at key factors like:
- Genetically modified organisms (GMOs)
- Mercury-containing high-fructose corn syrup
- Artificial sweeteners
- The type of pesticide, herbicide, or insecticide used
And countless other important items – which is why it is essential to get the word out on this subject. Not only do we make no money from this petition, by the way, but we do not hold or even have real access to your information. Instead, we set up the system to email Stanford directly with each new petition email sent. It’s a powerful way to initiate change using activism. I encourage you to sign the petition right now to set the record straight on this issue.
