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.
As the world begins to show mass support for GMO labeling and stricter regulations, critics recite the same mantra: "the anti-GMO movement is unscientific." But is it?
The public unfolding of the dangers of glyphosate appears to be reaching a crescendo, as mounting evidence is now threatening to bury this failed agricultural technology once and for all
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?
Is Autism a disease of impaired detoxification? Does the accumulative toxic load from vaccinations, GMOs, and acetaminophen contribute to this impaired detoxification?
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
The widely held claim that GMO food is as safe as traditional food has been disproved by a new study showing that Roundup accumulates in genetically modified plants and not conventional and organic ones.
Given the weight of the research, you are insane if you consume GMOs. Here's why...
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
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.
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
$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
When pharmaceutical and talk therapies fail with those suffering from PTSD, consider the brain's environment...Detox!
Think you can avoid glyphosate by buying organic? Think again. A new investigation by Tropical Traditions reveals that many products in the organic grain market in the U.S. contain glyphosate residue at levels almost the same as conventional grains.
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.
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
Recent research from Stanford University and the subsequent headlines from Reuters, NBC News, the New York Times and other mass media outlets have it all wrong: Choosing to grow and eat organic foods has little to do with nutritional content. Humanity must increasingly turn to organic foods. If we don't, we will damage our future food supply along with our health and the environment.
A new review of the toxicology literature on occupational pesticide exposure has found a link between glyphosate (Roundup)and B-cell lymphoma.
A federal jury in San Francisco has found that Monsanto’s weed-killer glyphosate was “a substantial factor” in causing a man’s cancer, delivering a major new blow to the agrochemical giant now owned by Bayer who acquired it last year.
Glyphosate has likely caused more damage to human health than any other chemical ever produced. Indeed, it is probably a cause of the explosion in chronic diseases. Surely civilization cannot be maintained when the average person is irrevocably ill. This trajectory of human misery must come to an end.
How is the public to trust a risk assessment system that has overlooked the most obvious risk factor for herbicide tolerant GM crops, i.e. high residue levels of herbicides, for nearly 20 years?
A new study confirms, if you are a living and breathing organism, chances you have Roundup weedkiller (glyphosate) in your body; and if you are a chronically sick human, chances are you have more than a healthy one
Studies document substantial differences of GM maize and GM soybean from their conventional non-GM counterparts, exposing a permissive regulatory regime that has failed miserably in protecting public health and biodiversity
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.
