UK Parliament, House of Lords Hansard, 28 February 2019

“They have faced the implacable determination of regulatory bodies spending huge amounts of public money on ad hoc scientific reviews to cast doubt on the work of highly reputable scientists. Those who have suffered so grievously deserve much better than this.”

Astroturfing : les fichiers secrets de Monsanto

Enquête de Laura Aguirre de Carcer, Tristan Waleckx et les équipes d’”Envoyé spécial” diffusée le 16 mai 2019

Nouvelles révélations sur les documents secrets de Monsanto. Après le fichage illégal de journalistes, de chercheurs, de politiques, l’équipe d'”Envoyé spécial” a découvert une autre stratégie : l’astroturfing.

Des agences de communication travaillant pour Monsanto ont créé un “faux mouvement spontané” de défense du glyphosate. Des hôtesses ont ainsi recruté des agriculteurs sans jamais leur dire qu’elles travaillaient pour la firme. L’objectif était de créer un groupe d’influence venant du terrain, en dissimulant cette stratégie aux premiers concernés : les agriculteurs. Référence.

 

Primodos, Sodium Valproate, Surgical Mesh : Baroness Cumberlege Talks

UK Parliament, House of Lords Hansard, 28 February 2019

“For the families involved, it is life-changing and extremely distressing. For those women who took Primodos and sodium valproate, there is an intense feeling of guilt. They took the medication and they blame themselves. However hard one tries to persuade them that it was not their fault, the guilt remains.”

“That tells me something is seriously wrong; the system is not working as it should. People who have been harmed should not have to fight to be heard or to access the care they need.”

EWG Primodos review criticised for ‘not assessing risks properly’

Sky News’ Exclusive, 4 Apr 2019

“Somebody, somewhere, has performed a meta-analysis.
At some point, there was a decision not to include that in the EWG report.”

Oxford University professor Carl Heneghan has told Sky News the evidence against the pregnancy drug Primodos suggests a significant link between it and birth deformities (see below).

On 23 April 2019, during the Westminster Hall debate on the Expert Working Group report on hormone pregnancy tests, some MPs also questioned the methodology used and asked why not use meta-analysis to assess primodos evidence ? Some others clarified the difference between correlation vs causation (in ref to primodos link to births defects), or said : with pharma funding the MHRA, can the EWG report be fully independent ?
