Industry vs. government science –

Considering the interests of business over the interests of public health is not a balanced approach. Industry is short-sighted in their efforts. Debasing genuine scientific information to maintain the bottom line doesn’t just affect the targeted science. It affects all science. Continuing to attack science and scientists only diminishes science as a whole and could lead to fewer individuals pursuing science in the future.

That doesn’t even touch on the public health effects. It’s easy for business to ignore things like this when their money and power shields them from the health consequences.
