Trey Gowdy has been asking questions whether the National Cancer Institute swept proof under the rug in regards to a potential cure, a herbicide, which allegedly cures cancer.
Gowdy, sent a letter on Tuesday to the NCI, asking the details of their research. The letter was intended for scientist Aaron Blair, who first broke the news of the potentially healing herb.
“The committee is concerned about these new revelations, especially given Dr. Blair’s apparent admission that the AHS study was ‘powerful,’ and would alter IARC’s analysis of glyphosate,” Gowdy wrote.
This came right after the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) stated that the herb might actually cause cancer instead of treating it back in 2015.
Gowdy further asked for an in depth proof that justified Blair’s decision to conduct an individual study from the one carried out by IARC.
This development affected Monsanto, an agribusiness that grows the Roundup weed that is packed with glyphosate.
Monsanto is doing its best to keep people from understanding that glyphosate is, in fact, a cancer-triggering substance.
In March, the European Chemical Agency (ECHA), ruled that “the available scientific evidence did not meet the criteria to classify glyphosate as a carcinogen.”
Aside from Gowdy, other Republicans also raised suspicion on the study, including Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, who asked the Department of Health and Human Services to publicly admit and prove that glyphosate doesn’t cause cancer.
Blair has been blamed of mishandling relevant information regarding the study, alongside investigators at Duke University who were also accused of tampering with related data. Potts-Kant stated the fake data was being “included in various publications and grant applications.”
Former analyst Joseph Thomas noted that the university didn’t pay attention to Potts-Kant’s research, although the signs were more than obvious.
She collaborated with Michael Foster, to whom the Environmental Protection Agency gave a grant in 2007. The grant was supposed to serve to find if subjection to airborne particulates can cause lung cancer in mice.
