Crowdfund Request: Laura N Vandenberg correspondence

Share Embed Help

Help cover the request fees needed to free these docs! Professor Vandenberg recently produced a questionable paper questioning the safety of glyphosate. Another author on the study is Charles Benbrook who told the organic industry he could produce such a paper for $100,000 to assist in a court case in Australia. We are seeking correspondence between them and those who funded their paper.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.
