Alan Cassels Speaks at Merchants of Doubt Screening

Last year during Naturopathic Medicine Week, BCNA screened GMO OMG.  It was a documentary which considered what goes into food, what ingredients are modified, and the lack of transparency behind major corporations such as Monsanto.

Merchants of Doubt

This year, BCNA is screening Merchants of Doubt, a movie which considers the so-called experts who weigh in on studies, research and advances in science, but who are more often than not paid by corporations for their opinion.

This week, it has come to light that Monsanto has a whole department dedicated to nothing else except shooting down the scientists that discredit Monsanto product.

Merchants of Doubt exposes this trend towards news as corporate propaganda, and how it has an impact on our health and well-being.

Alan Cassels

Special screenings in Victoria and Vancouver during Naturopathic Medicine Week include special guest Alan Cassels.  Cassels is a health researcher at University of Victoria, an expert on the corporate interests which drive health headlines and, often, medical care.  He reports in his book Seeking Sickness that pharmaceutical companies sometimes put simple tests online with the goal of encouraging people to see their doctor to receive more tests. The ultimate objective is to sell more prescription drugs.
