Restricting Dietary Fat and Saturated Fat, a History of Infamy
A scandalous history of scientists for hire, revolving door between food industry and regulators, not-for-profit NGOs hungry for funding, plain bad science, and fake TV commercials; sounds familiar by now?

China's Transgenic Phytase Maize neither Necessary nor Safe
China's transgenic maize with high phytase to make phosphate available has had its bio-safety certificate renewed without requisite molecular characterization and supporting safety data; it is a poor strategy for overcoming phosphorus scarcity, and has the potential to cause serious harm to health and the environment

How Grain Self-Sufficiency, Massive GM Soybean Imports and Glyphosate Exports Led China to Devastate People and Planet
China owns 70 % of world’s production capacity for glyphosate, more than 80% exported, mainly to USA, Brazil and Argentina, countries that have greatly expanded GM soybean production for export to China; excessive glyphosate spraying has sickened people and wildlife in GM soybean producing countries while a billion Chinese people are poisoned with toxic soybeans
