Link to a New Yorker magazine article about Tyrone Hayes and his research regarding Atrazine.
Pretty disturbing stuff about hired science and industrial efforts to discredit scientists whose work reveals problems with profitable products.

Thank you for posting this. Just forwarded it to someone I know who has been subjected to what we now realize were similar tactics from vested interests in the big pharma world, although not to such an extreme. Yet. But nearly destroyed several promising young scientists' careers. They don't care so long as quarterly profits meet or exceed expectations.
