WHO’s International Agency For Research On Cancer Needs To Undergo Reform

Fox News: This flawed U.N. health agency threatens America’s food supply. It’s time for badly needed reform
Jeff Stier, senior fellow at the Consumer Choice Center, and Julie Kelly, senior contributor to American Greatness

“Question: When is a carcinogen not necessarily a carcinogen? Answer: When the labeling is done by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a French-based institution that is having a big and unjustified impact on American law and our economy. … IARC badly needs to be reformed, and some fundamental changes need to be made. … [IARC] uses outdated and incomplete methodologies to conjure up ‘carcinogen’ warnings that now threaten to warp our economy. In doing so, IARC also undermines much-needed trust in global public health institutions. … U.S. taxpayers should let their representatives know that because Americans support responsible global public health programs, evidence-based science, and transparent government, IARC funding should be frozen until it institutes these changes” (3/2).
