http://naturalsociety.com/usda-scientists-harassed-for-questioning-roundups-safety/

It continues to be revealed to the public that the only legitimacy Monsanto and the rest of the biotech industry tout comes from payoffs, censorship, and bullying. On March 26th, Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER), an advocacy group for local, state, and federal researchers, filed a legal petition with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to stop the “political suppression or alteration of studies and to lay out clear procedures for investigating allegations of scientific misconduct.”

According to Reuters, PEER’s Executive Director Jeff Ruch said that at least 10 USDA scientists have been investigated or faced other consequences arising from research that called into question the safety of certain agricultural chemicals. Ruch goes on to say that his organization had received mounting complaints over the last year from USDA scientists claiming they have been ordered to retract studies, water down findings, remove their names from authorship, and experienced delays in approvals for publication of research papers. . . .

The USDA has a very rich history of abusing both its power and its position.

If someone else is 'abusing' them, trust me, they earned it.
