What happens when you allow commercial interests free rein over a nation state's food and agricultural policies? Consumers and farmers end up paying the price. Take the current predicament of wheat contamination in the US .
Jamie Oliver, former organic food activist, has decided to team up with pro-GMO pushers the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation.
Is Autism a disease of impaired detoxification? Does the accumulative toxic load from vaccinations, GMOs, and acetaminophen contribute to this impaired detoxification?
If the purpose of the press is to be a public interest watchdog then the science media is a uniquely unsuccessful institution. This is nowhere truer than in its coverage of the ag-biotech industry.
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.
Monsanto-funded research has been proliferating as uncontrollably as their genetically modified (GM) plants, and the bugs resistant to them, of late. Two studies have appeared in scientific journals in the past eight months, both funded by Monsanto, and both discrediting a Roundup herbicide-cancer link.
Could GE Baker's yeast, which produces insulin in human gut, be a cause of the worldwide epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes?
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.
Think GMOs are safe for human consumption? Think again. There are plenty of reasons GMOs should be banned, or, at the very least, labeled.
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 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...
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?
You might ask, "why all the fuss about agricultural genetically modified organisms (GMOs)?" After all, regulatory agencies have approved these technologies for widespread application and consumption, so they must be safe, right? Well, the truth is that there is no agency and no industry that works to protect our health. At best, the EPA, USDA, and FDA attempt to respond to our disease after the cause is widespread.
The harms caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination can be complex, severe, and exceedingly difficult to treat. However, a promising new study shows there is hope for those whom conventional medicine has failed.
Hillary Clinton Suffers Monsanto Bombshell on Eve of US Election The latest in the on-going Clinton email scandal now sets in concrete the connection between John Podesta and biotech monstrosity Monsanto.
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?
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.
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."
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.
The widely held belief is that genetically modified ‘terminator seeds’ are not available on the commercial market anywhere. But why do so many distrust biotech's assurances that the technology will never be used?
Whoa! Did you see that? No one seems to notice yet that we're winning the battle against genetically modified foods!
An Indian high-profile parliamentary panel has recommended that GM crop "field trails under any garb should be discontinued forthwith," and that further GM agricultural research should "only be done under strict containment."
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.
Despite intense protests from consumer groups and environmentalists, genetically modified organisms, (GMOs) foods have been dubbed as the 'human feeding experiment' and are continuing to be integrated into the food supply. Most of us do not even know the extent of it, as it is not in mainstream news.
