“The history of industry misinformation is well-documented – particularly tobacco industry denial of the link between smoking and ill health. Similar misinformation strategies are commonly used by the alcohol, food, fossil fuel, pesticide and other industries. It has been suggested that this reflects a cross-industry “playbook” that such industries use to distract from their harms and to delay effective monitoring and regulation. In this talk, Professor Mark Petticrew will outline the strategies some industries are using to misinform us and consider how these can be combatted.”
