FOR THE RECORD

Los Angeles Times - - OP-ED -

Glyphosate: Physi­cian and molec­u­lar bi­ol­o­gist Henry Miller, a fel­low at Stan­ford Univer­sity’s Hoover In­sti­tu­tion, this year cowrote an op-ed ob­ject­ing to the in­clu­sion of the weed-killer glyphosate — sold as Roundup — on Cal­i­for­nia’s list of po­ten­tially cancer-caus­ing sub­stances. The es­say, pub­lished April 27, 2017, also at­tacked de­ci­sion-mak­ing at the In­ter­na­tional Agency for Re­search on Cancer, which in 2015 clas­si­fied glyphosate as a “prob­a­ble hu­man car­cino­gen.” Miller should have dis­closed that in writ­ing and re­search­ing a sep­a­rate piece about the IARC de­ci­sion for Forbes mag­a­zine in 2015, he asked for and made par­tial use of drafted ma­te­rial sup­plied to him by a con­tact at Mon­santo. Mon­santo man­u­fac­tures Roundup.
