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.
Unfortuantely schools throughout the country consider Chick-fil-A food "better fast food,"even allowing their mascot direct marketing access to children within schools. But a quick perusal of their famous Waffle Fries reveals that their food is as junky, GMO, and toxic as any other fast food brand.
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 #1 Children's vitamin brand in the US contains ingredients that most parents would never intentionally expose their children to, so why aren't more opting for healthier alternatives?
Does "organic" really mean "organic?" Or has the word "organic" been twisted to mean its opposite?
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.
According to the media "genome editing" techniques can precisely alter the DNA of living organisms and these will change the landscapes of medicine and agriculture. The safety and effectiveness of these techniques hinges crucially on the claim of precision, yet how plausible is it?
Whoa! Did you see that? No one seems to notice yet that we're winning the battle against genetically modified foods!
Could Monsanto's glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup be leading to the overgrowth of deadly bacteria in animals and humans consuming genetically-modified food contaminated with it?
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.
The tide is turning against the globalization of GMO-based agriculture and forced feeding with consumers leading the charge from the bottom up demanding informed consent (e.g. labeling, independent science) and organic alternatives.
A groundbreaking new study reveals that GMO soy accumulates the carcinogenic chemical formaldehyde, calling into question its safety and the notion that GMOs are substantially equivalent to their conventional counterparts.
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.
We are creatures of habit. Lets face it. We buy our snacks in fancy packages, and enjoy the carefully engineered delicious food, without thinking about it. Perhaps it is time to start connecting some dots.
Labeling of GM foods is required in the European Union, China, Russia, Australia and Japan, in fact, in 64 countries around the world. Labeling will give us the ability to choose what we consume. Please contact your state legislators and urge them to support pending “Right to Know” legislation in your state. Do it for your children. Do it for the planet.
In an unprecedented decision, India's National Biodiversity Authority (NBA), a government agency, declared legal action against Monsanto (and their collaborators) for accessing and using local eggplant varieties to develop their Bt genetically engineered version1 without prior approval of the competent authorities, which is considered an act of "biopiracy."
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.
One of the hottest and most controversial issues in the world today is genetic engineering. With protests against Monsanto on May 25th in over 400 cities, people have shown that this is a topic they truly care about. Largely, the stances are highly polarized with opponents saying it is all cancer causing, poisonous, and environmentally dangerous and supporters saying it is wonderful, improving yield and making everyone except "anti-science" opponents happy.
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.
Today, we see horrific manifestations of a sick society with zombie-like heartless acts of violence. We are seeing creepy emerging emerging pathologies, new assaults to immunology, science fiction mad scientists, and technology with disturbing self-serving agendas.
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.
Could GE Baker's yeast, which produces insulin in human gut, be a cause of the worldwide epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes?
There is an invisible war being waged, right under your nose, on your plate and at the end of your fork. Genetic modification has dramatically transformed not only our food, our biosphere, but also our bodies.
According to a new study, the ‘Cry’ toxins that Monsanto’s GMO crops have been genetically modified to produce are a lot more toxic to mammals than previously thought, primarily to the blood.
