Fact Checking The London March Against Monsanto Protesters – The WHO’s U-Turn on Glyphosate

It’s that time of year again where people from all walks of life come together in large cities around the world to publicise their ignorance about a technology they oppose, but know very little about. I am, of course, talking about those who attended the rather misleadingly named March Against Monsanto protests this weekend. The reason I say these events have a rather misleading name is because the vast majority of people in attendance are not there to protest against the huge biotechnology company Monsanto, but are in fact there to protest against genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

  1. The leaps in logic people make every day astonish me – no critical or analytical insight into any claims being made by randoms on the internet. Confirmation bias is a cancer. You are doing good work Myles, I am so happy I have found your website.
