Our ActivistCash.com database project explores the financial ties and radical relationships among animal rights, environmental, and “food police” organizations. It’s full of the dirty secrets that these activist groups with fuzzy names—from the ”Humane Society” of the United States to Greenpeace–don’t want the public to know. This week, we’ve updated our profile of an organization known as the Environmental Working Group (EWG). Anytime you read a scary newspaper headline warning you that your lipstick or water bottle might be secretly killing you, this Environmental “Worrying” Group’s name will probably turn up.
EWG has recently been attacking Vitamin A (we’re not joking) as a supposed cancer-causing agent. With scaremongering that silly (and reckless), it’s no surprise that 79 percent of members of the Society of Toxicology believe EWG overhypes the health risks of chemicals.
As we’re telling the media today:
The Environmental Working Group has perfected the art of duping science and health reporters. This is an organization that never met a food it couldn’t turn into a panicked newspaper headline. Not even vitamin A is safe from EWG’s poison pen.
The Environmental ‘Worrying’ Group’s regular assaults on common sense have made it one of the most error-prone activist organizations in America. But now consumers and the media have a one-stop shop for information that can help them fight back.
