This week the American Association for the Advancement of Science announced an award to two Sri Lankan researchers for their research showing that glyphosate was a “deadly herbicide” that was causing kidney disease in farmers. Of course, I remember some work they did in forming a hypothesis and eventually measuring heavy metals and farm chemicals in urine, but I never recall such a definitive conclusion. Because there was none. The research is what the research is, but AAAS made a huge blunder in allowing a completely incorrect interpretation of the current literature to hit their pages. Of course, now this has blossomed in to a claims of multinational corporate conspiracy of censorship and suppression, when it really was just an organization likely posting what they were told was the actual science. # COLABRA Talking Biotech is brought to you by Colabra – an R&D platform that brings your lab’s world-changing research together in one shared space.
