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 November 2014, an open letter signed by about 57 million Americans reached European politicians urging them not to follow America’s genetic engineering path in food and agriculture
Bayer, the German drugmaker that bought U.S. seed company Monsanto earlier this year, announced on Thursday the sale of a number of businesses, around 12,000 job cuts and 3.3 billion euros ($3.8 billion) in impairments, Reuters reported
The food you eat directly affects your brain
The microbes in the soil make the hidden treasure called fulvic acid, the miracle of life. Our bodies need it for optimal health. Fulvic acid is not a vitamin or a mineral and cannot be synthesized
NHF Slams the Global Pesticide Empire.
Though research claims that glyphosate is a likely cause of cancer, Monsanto continues to argue that the findings are based on 'junk' science and cherry picking and are agenda driven.
A new report by the toxicologist Dr Peter Clausing shows that the EU authorities violated their own rules and disregarded evidence that glyphosate is carcinogenic to reach a conclusion that the chemical does not cause cancer
Gene-editing of DNA inside of living cells is considered by many to be the preeminent technological breakthrough of the new millennium, but its commercial prospects are much more complicated
An alarming new study finds that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup weedkiller, is estrogenic and drives breast cancer cell proliferation in the parts-per-trillion range. Does this help explain the massive mammary tumors that the only long term animal feeding study on Roundup and GM corn ever performed recently found?
A new study reveals that Roundup herbicide enhances the growth of aflatoxin-producing fungi, lending an explanation for the alarming increase in fungal toxins recently discovered in U.S corn, and revealing another way in which GM farming is seriously undermining food quality.
The EPA is tossing aside safety data; Companies "testing" their own products have led to the EPA sweeping major environmental and social problems under the rug.
$80 million in damages was the figure the jury arrived at in a unanimous verdict against Monsanto for failing to warn Edwin Hardeman of the cancer risks of the herbicide RoundUp
Impossible Foods claim they want to 'transform the global food system', but their actions suggest they want to keep the status quo going
If Monsanto's Roundup herbicide were actually 'safer than table salt' as they once advertised, the consumption of GM food wouldn't be nearly as controversial. The truth, however, is that virtually all GM food today contains residues of this toxic chemical, which disproves that GM and non-GM foods are 'substantially equivalent," which is the primary doctrinal justification behind why GM foods are not properly safety tested and millions in this country eating them...
A new testing program organized by The Detox Project in coordination with Kudzu Science, has released the first ever results for glyphosate levels in human hair, in an extraordinary announcement on Wednesday
Environmental contaminants are causing decreased sperm production among men, with couples having difficulty conceiving and children being born with numerous health concerns
Thanks to the Human Microbiome Project, we know that we are home to trillions of microbes, the largest number of which are found in our gut. And as in agriculture, diversity tends toward health
Do you have an autoimmune disorder, or has your thyroid come to a screeching halt? Is that extra body fat stuck to you like glue? When it comes to autoimmune issues, sluggish thyroid or other metabolic issues, it’s time to turn the spotlight toward toxicity as Suspect Number One
Major tectonic shifts have occurred around the historically secretive multinational corporate structure of Monsanto, forcing transparency, furthering the public debate, and assisting lawsuits that expose the true nature of Monsanto’s toxic product and its multi-level collusion to hide the fact of its carcinogenicity.
Glyphosate, the toxic chemical found in Monsanto's herbicide Roundup, has now been found in the breast milk of German women. Glyphosate is proven to cause a myriad of ills and is appearing at alarming levels in human beings.
We often hear that correlation is not causation, so why are world renowned scientists treating the Zika virus as the sole cause of microcephaly in Brazil when there are so many other factors?
A study on the herbicide Roundup and commercialized genetically modified maize found severe liver and kidney damage and hormonal disturbances in rats fed the GM maize and low levels of Roundup.
The failure of the mass effort to ban glyphosate from the market requires a rethink of campaigning against single chemical
