Whack-a-mole bingo

As you know, there is a big kicking machine on hand to deal with raving lunatics who ask awkward questions about food safety.

That machine will need an overdrive gear after yesterday's finding by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (pdf) that glyphosate is probably carcinogenic.

This is starting to look like that never-ending whack-a-mole game: the moles keep popping up no matter how many you smack down. Which isn't surprising when you think about how hard it would be to prove anything safe.

But enough epistemology. In anticipation of the inevitable backlash, let's all play whack-a-mole bingo.
