Ever wonder where so-called experts get their funding? What their conflicts of interest lie? Well there is a website that can help ferret out the truth. It’s called SourceWatch and whenever I need to find out whether a scientist or researcher is giving an honest opinion or is just a shill for industry, I go there.
One of my previous posts I talked about Elizabeth Whelan, an industry shill who claims that we shouldn’t be concerned about environmental toxins in our blood. Turns out she gets a whole lot of funding from the very industries who pollute our environment. You can read it here from SourceWatch’s information about her.
When you read articles or see comments that hint of a conflict of interest on the part of the “expert”, check out their funding.
