Does ‘pseudoscience’ affect decision making in the EU?

Last month, a group of scientists from across Europe met to express their concern over the impact of ‘pseudoscience’ and ‘dogma’ on regulation decisions. The scientists believe that some people are being ‘deliberately selective’ in presentations of risks. They highlighted the fact that strongly expressed opinions arising from well-funded pressure groups could result in poor regulatory choices when it comes to agriculture, healthcare and industry. See my report about their concern over here at The Canary.
