And I pointed out that Vanessa Black from Biowatch was wrong in making those claims in today's column. I'm not going to repeat myself when you won't even acknowledge my arguments. And I certainly won't apologise when I'm not wrong. Discussion over.

I didn't "cherry-pick" anything. I cited independent reviews and analyses of thousands of non-industry-funded papers. I cited the opinions of hundreds of independent scientific institutions. If you just ignore what I write, I'd do better debating a rock. I'm done.

One of the only two negative reviews my book received, by someone whose views I have often challenged by name, and you consider this the final word. Okay. The other is by Tony Weaver, and Adam Welz also wrote a neat hit piece on me, if you want to satisfy your confirmation bias.

I stated the current science on GMOs. If you feel facts discredit Biowatch or anyone else, so be it. And yes, a lot of people have disagreed with me over the years. That does not make me wrong, or discredited.

Your mission is to discredit and deplatform me. You're not interested in truth. You're trying to suppress opinions that go against your own. And yes, your attempts to link me to the GMO industry are pure conspiracy theory.

I can only roll my eyes. Note how they always attack my integrity, and never challenge the substance of what I write.

I'm flattered you think I'm part of a worldwide conspiracy to pervert the scientific establishment to cover up Big Agri's plot to poison the world's food supply.

That's how the internet works. People find things they like and repost them. I have never had any interaction with the GLP. If they happen to agree with my columns, I'm perfectly okay with that. I repeat: I get paid by , unless otherwise specified.

Since when is citing independent reviews and meta-analyses of thousands of scientific papers "cherry-picking"? Argue the case, instead of trying to shoot the messenger.

Trump's strategy with Iran is the same as with Mexico and with China. Prove you're the biggest badass and threaten to really ruin your day, until the other side taps out and cuts whatever deal they can.
