MPOC lambasts WHO over negative remarks on palm oil lobbying


KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC) has lambasted the World Health Organisation (WHO) over its claim that the palm oil industry is deploying tactics similar to those of the alcohol and tobacco industries to influence research into the health effects of its products.

Describing a study published by the WHO as biased, MPOC chief executive officer Datuk Dr Kalyana Sundram said the editor of the report had slipped the biased findings through an otherwise stringent peer review process, causing concerns among academics.
