Science for Sale

Rocks and Flowers is a periodic column citing instances of  journalistic excellence and journalistic malpractice.

The Center for Public Integrity (CPI) has published a well-documented, compelling investigation showing the dubious relationship between some purported scientific organization and corporate America.

At issue is whether some big businesses that manufacture and use allegedly harmful substances have bought the services of researchers to conduct studies that debunk research demonstrating the harmful side effects from these substances.

CPI deserves a flower for its solid documentation of a worrisome practice.
