How come people like you never take a look at PubMed to see how I spend my time and who I am supported by (NCI, Einstein College of Medicine, etc.)? This does the public a real disservice. But I guess you have to keep plugging your line. https://t.co/8vv31AsTHs

You have never learned to keep to the evidence, rather than making unsupported ad hominem arguments -- pretty pathetic. https://t.co/8vv31AsTHs

Precaution does not give license to ignore what the best scientific evidence tells us.  https://twitter.com/SageThinker99/status/933678359258771456

I'm not saying it is definitive - nothing is. It's just the best human data that we have. The animal studies are null and the mechanistic studies are null ACCORDING TO IARC and others. So, as always, in these situations we have to make the most reasonable judgment. https://t.co/TnBTgOwaiv

I am not saying that Monsanto is made up of saints. I am trying to see where the most reliable evidence lies. In addition, I have followed IARC's assessments on a number of different issues, & IARC has its own biases, i.e., extreme precautionary pandering. https://t.co/tm3HdYIo6h
