The latest Monsanto shill to be exposed in the media happens to hail from one the highest levels of academia: Harvard University.

Emails recently obtained by The Boston Globe through a public records request have revealed that Harvard Kennedy School Professor Calestous Juma wrote a widely published paper at the request of Monsanto without disclosing his connections to the biotech industry giant.

Juma, a Kenyan native and international development expert, wrote “Global Risks of Rejecting Agricultural Biotechnology” for a GMO propaganda website funded by Monsanto. The suggested title and contents of the article were apparently provided by Monsanto’s Eric Sachs, head of regulatory policy and scientific affairs for the infamous GMO-slinging corporation.

In what was clearly a “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” bargain, Juma wrote what is essentially a propaganda piece for Monsanto in exchange for a merchandising deal provided by Sachs on behalf of the company.

From The Boston Globe:

His [Sachs’s] e-mail lays out the agribusiness giant’s strategy. A marketing company would “merchandize” the papers online, disseminate them to the media, and schedule op-eds, blog posts, speaking engagements, and webinars.

Monsanto suggested the research paper assigned to Juma be headlined “Consequences of Rejecting GM crops.” In December 2014, Juma published “Global Risks of Rejecting Agricultural Biotechnology,” on the website of the Genetic Literacy Project.
