– the Manipulation of research is extremely worrying, " says Åke Bergman, professor in environmental chemistry.
He is one of the signatories of the petition, which was first published in French as Le Monde and in the weekend in the Swedish newspaper svenska Dagbladet.
the Message is an invitation to the EUROPEAN commission and the industry to stop manipulating scientific results.
– It is very important to show that it is serious and we are worried, " says Åke Bergman.
the Background is that the EUROPEAN commission recently presented a proposal for the definition for endocrine disrupting chemicals.
It has aroused great concern among many researchers, who consider the standard of proof in the definition as too high.
