First Swordfish, Now Lobster?

Apparently the falsehoods used in the campaign against swordfish haven't stopped attempts to stop us from eating another favorite seafood, lobster.

Mistaken Sentiment

Lynn Goldman, former head of the EPA pesticide and toxic chemicals office, is apparently now working with activists to promote organic agriculture and restrict other food choices. Goldman, listed as a sympathizer by the anti-chemical Children's Health Environmental Coalition Network, repeats her erroneous "Organic is your best bet when it comes to safe fruit and vegetables" message to U.S. News & World Report.

Pointlessly Disputing The Known Facts

Who would be crazy enough to dispute the findings of the American Cancer Society, American Medical Association, American Dietetic Association, and the American Diabetes Association? It could only be anti-choice nannies Michael Jacobson of CSPI and Mr. Samuel "All Chemicals Cause Cancer" Epstein. They seem to be the only ones left who still think saccharin is a health threat.

Reporter Against Food Choices

In not one, but two articles on Sunday, Karen Goldberg Goff of the Washington Times draws from the anti-choice nannies at the Center for Science in the Public Interest to make the ridiculous case that people shouldn't eat such delectable items as Pop-Tarts, Twinkies, donuts, French fries, and white bread.

CSPI Tax Attack

Fresh from their Nutrition Summit demand for new taxes on snacks, sodas and high-calorie foods, the Center for Science in the Public Interest is now fighting the repeal of Washington D.C.'s unpopular and confusing retail sales tax on snacks and soft drinks.
