U.S. Right to Know is investigating the food and agrichemical industries, and the secrets they hide about our food. We employ litigation as a tool for transparency, to protect consumers and public health.
The documents we have obtained thus far have generated media coverage about hidden industry payments and secret collaborations that undermine scientific, academic, political and regulatory institutions.
