Reuters recently published a pair of supposedly investigative articles that are actually a thinly veiled hit piece on the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), and that organization’s recent ruling that glyphosate (Roundup) is a “probable carcinogen.”

The real motivation of these pieces is revealed in an analysis published in The Ecologist by Claire Robinson of GMWatch. Robinson’s analysis shows that all of the “sources” relied on in the articles’ efforts to discredit the IARC are in fact industry sources, including scientists notorious for defending the tobacco and asbestos industries.

Industry-friendly sources

The two-part smear campaign begins with an article titled, “Who says bacon is bad? How the World Health Organization’s cancer agency confuses consumers.” This article, written by Kate Kelland, emphasizes the IARC’s classification of processed meats and certain hairdressing supplies as probable carcinogens (which they are) to mock the agency, implying that it considers all sorts of actually innocuous things carcinogens.

Kelland goes on to claim that “Experts from academia, industry and public health say IARC confuses the public and policymakers.”
