This happens to me when I post about the risks of GMOs. I get anonymous comments and emails from people I don't know defending GMOs, saying the studies are flawed, and sometimes ridiculing me for posting about them.
(It makes me wonder if the authors of these emails aren't employed by companies that benefit from the sale and use of GMOs and pesticides.)
Studies are not "flawed." This is science. You test a hypothesis, you tweak the design, you test again. If it is true that studies are flawed or imperfect, then all studies are indeed flawed, since all studies are imperfect. The claim that studies are flawed is used by businesses to plant the seed of doubt while they continue making money.
- Monsanto calls studies that show fertility problems in rats fed GMOs "flawed."
- GlaxoSmithKline calls studies that show heart problems in people taking their drug Avandia "flawed."
- Philip Morris calls studies that show lung cancer deaths linked to cigarette smoking "flawed."
