Investigative journalist Carey Gillam described Syngenta’s latest effort to smear and harass neurologist Dr. E. Ray Dorsey for revealing the chemical manufacturer’s alleged decades-long suppression of its own documentation showing its weedkiller paraquat’s link to Parkinson’s disease.

Six months ago neurologist Dr. E. Ray Dorsey and a colleague authored an article titled “Paraquat, Parkinson’s Disease and Agnotology,” which spotlighted secrets unearthed from within the corporate files of paraquat maker Syngenta AG.

The article was published on March 6, in Movement Disorders, the official journal of the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society.

In the article, Dorsey and co-author neurologist Dr. Amit Ray pointed to stories I wrote for The New Lede and The Guardian that were based upon thousands of pages of the company’s internal documents dating back to the 1950s.
