Germany's top supermarkets have delivered a blow to the biotech industry by forcing the German poultry industry to return to the use of non-GMO feed.
Jamie Oliver, former organic food activist, has decided to team up with pro-GMO pushers the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation.
The commercial purpose of GMOs is not to feed the world or improve farming. They exist to gain patent rights over seeds and plant breeding and to drive agriculture in directions that benefit agribusiness at the expense of farmers, consumers and the natural world.
In the course of analysis to identify potential allergens in GMO crops, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has belatedly discovered that the most common genetic regulatory sequence in commercial GMOs also encodes a significant fragment of a viral gene. This finding has serious ramifications for crop biotechnology and its regulation, but possibly even greater ones for consumers and farmers.
Here's a partial lineup of hired guns and organizations behind the anti-labeling advertising blitz soon to hit the California airwaves.
What do a former mouthpiece for tobacco and big oil, a corporate-interest PR flack, and the regional director of a Monsanto-funded tort reform group have in common?
A new study, yet to receive any media attention, reveals the "leukemogenic" properties of the Bt toxin biopesticides engineered into the vast majority of GMO food crops already within the US food supply.
Many things are being altered right before our eyes, mostly without your consent, or maybe knowledge. These changes are from funded and classified experiments, accidents, and new science with creepy 'modern' agendas. This sort of broad scale change is unfolding in nearly every facet of our lives. But the signs and symptoms already indicate that not everything is too good for health.
Lets start with food for example. The bioavailability of nutritional benefits seems to be getting...
GMO farming practices heavily dependent upon glyphosate herbicide formulations such as Roundup have serious, unintended adverse effects on human and environmental health. New research indicates glyphosate does not break down rapidly, as the manufacturer claimed, but is accumulating in the groundwater -the source for most of the world's drinking water.
Do you have digestive problems? Don't wait for science to sort it out, do your own test on the GMO effects on your health.
For the past 20 years, GMOs have been allowed to permeate our food supply, with government regulators & industry spreading the myth of their safety, despite the contrary evidence. Why should you care?
In the wake of a 12-year battle to keep Monsanto's Genetically Engineered (GE) crops from contaminating the nation's 25,000 organic farms and ranches, America's organic consumers and producers are facing betrayal. A self-appointed cabal of the Organic Elite, spearheaded by Whole Foods Market, Organic Valley, and Stonyfield Farm, has decided it's time to surrender to Monsanto. Top executives from these companies have publicly admitted that they no longer oppose the mass...
Dr. Vandana Shiva responses to Michael Specter's "Seeds of Doubt" article, detailing fraudulent assertions, manipulating reports of GMOS from Monsanto and a misunderstood Indian experience with GMO Bt cotton.
The US Food and Drug Admin. just approved a drug made from genetically modified carrots to treat Gaucher, a rare disease found mostly among Ashkenazi Jews. Out of a global population of 6.8 billion, an estimated range of 60-100,000 people carry the recessive gene for it, though not all are symptomatic.
Perhaps you've heard about Morgellons Disease, and by now you know about GM (genetically modified) food, but the link between the two, is possibly connected according to Professor Joe Cummins, Professor Emeritus at the University of Western Ontario. Most people are aware that soybeans, canola, and corn are GM foods ubiquitous in our food chain. However, Sadly 75% of US food contains unlabeled GM ingredients.
If what we're doing may contribute to the new normal of childhood chronic illness, then here are 7 bold and brave ways to keep baby safe.
The world's largest study on GMO & Pesticide safety will answer whether GMO food and associated pesticide, like Glyphosate/Roundup, are safe for human health.
Disturbing new research published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology indicates that genetically modified (GM) crops with stacked traits, that is, with multiple traits such as glyphosate-herbicide resistance and Bacillus Thuringensis (Bt) insecticidal toxins engineered together into the same plant, are likely far more dangerous to human health than previously believed, due to their synergistic toxicity.
New evidence reveals that despite a ban on cultivation of GM rapeseed in Europe, Monsanto and Bayer's plants are now freely growing there.
Peer-reviewed publication, which many hold to be the defining characteristic of science, has become a tool through which one vision, that of corporate science, has come to assert ultimate control.
In a sudden turn of events, three separate incidents of Chinese authorities identifying and destroying illegally imported GM corn from the United States have been reported.
Frankly, there is a frightening coincidence glaring at us, right before our eyes. Obesity has become pandemic in the past 30 years, paralleling the use of genetic engineering, and increased pesticide use. More than 60% of Americans are overweight, and obesity has doubled in the past 20 years globally. Our intestines may be colonized with new microbes, making us very sick. Something is seriously wrong here and has not been seen before.
Earlier this year, Vandana Shiva generated quite a stir within the blogosphere after comparing GMOs to rape in a Twitter post. And yet, as far as metaphors go, the comparison was strikingly accurate.
Stroller-pushing mothers delivered nearly a million signatures in Sacramento on Wednesday, for an initiative to put to populist vote The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act.
The ten-week signature drive collected nearly double the amount needed to put the R2K Act on the November 6, 2012 ballot.
Did you know that scientists all over the globe are creating extremely bizarre human-animal chimeras? Can you imagine what kind of sick and twisted experiments are taking place in the dark corners of secret labs that nobody knows about?
