More Controversy Over Open-Access Publisher MDPI

It seems some scientists are rushing up to made claim about glyphosate and autism without having the proof of it, even claiming it will result in one child out of every two with ASD in 2035. The source of this is labelled as study in indeed a review (a review is not a scientific demonstration, it just summarize previous studies and help to address new questions). On top of it on a journal that has absolutely no scientific record in such topic (Entropy is a journal about…well entropy). Cherry on top, an open-access journal that shows some “predatory behavior” and even some fear-mongering message in the abstract page: † Note added by the Publisher: This paper attracts great attention. Please refer to our policy regarding possibly controversial articles. WTF?!?. Excuse my French. (http://www.mdpi.com/1099-4300/15/4/1416)
I will dig in an review this more.
