The hijacking of regulatory agencies is not limited to Monsanto's control of the FDA. In Europe, their FDA equivalent - EFSA - just ousted Diana Banati due to her participation in the biotech lobbying group International Life Sciences Institute Europe (ILSI). Naturally, upon submitting her resignation she became ILSI's executive and scientific director.
In the U.S., President Obama's appointment of Michael Taylor is receiving similar scrutiny. Taylor - the former vice president for public policy at Monsanto - is currently deputy commissioner for foods at the FDA where he oversees food safety.
