Washington Post science for sale: Propaganda rag derides essential nutrients while promoting Monsanto, GMOs and fluoride

In typical manipulative form, The Washington Post recently declared fish oil supplements to be ineffective and “unproven” at protecting the heart, despite mounds of scientific evidence suggesting otherwise. Citing a few outlier studies that were poorly constructed and that included the use of pharmaceutical drugs, The Washington Post is now urging the public to avoid “useless” fish oil pills, while at the same time endorsing industry poisons like genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) and fluoride.

The Washington Post report claims that earlier studies suggested benefits from taking fish oil, hence why they’re now widely used, but that newer ones are “inconclusive.” Never mind that Big Pharma has already introduced its own patented omega-3 fish oil “drug” called “Lovaza” (GlaxoSmithKline), which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved on the basis that it reduces triglyceride levels – fish oil in supplemental, non-drug form is somehow not beneficial for this very same purpose, according to the WP.

Here’s what The Washington Post writer Peter Whoriskey wrote in his propaganda piece against fish oil:

“People in the United States spend about $1.2 billion annually for fish oil pills and related supplements even though the vast majority of research published recently in major journals provides no evidence of a health benefit.”

This is an amazingly audacious claim, considering that Lovaza generates nearly the same amount of sales revenue for GSK every year. Is Lovaza just as useless as supplemental fish oil pills sold at health food stores? Or does rubber-stamping this pharma pill with FDA approval automatically make it effective, and its natural, non-patented counterpart ineffective?

Washington Post attacks Chipotle for going GMO-free; but make sure you don’t touch that fish oil!
