A new study offers 'scientific proof' that Roundup herbicide, far from a cancer causing agent, may help to cure lethal cancers some day.
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.
The modern controversy over Roundup (glyphosate) and the documentation of its effects on humans, animals and soils, has much in common with that over DDT fifty years ago. In particular, it recapitulates attempts to sideline critics and the ongoing delusion of control of the natural world that informs modern agricultural practices.
Dr. Stephanie Seneff, MIT scientist and glyphosate expert answers questions from Zen Honeycutt...
A newly published scientific consensus statement on Roundup herbicide reveals exposure to this ubiquitous toxicant is increasing and research proving it safe is still nowhere to be found.
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.
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
A new study published in International Journal of Toxicology reveals that the primary herbicide used in GM farming is toxic to human cells in concentrations far below agricultural applications.
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
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.
While Parkinson's disease has no known cause or cure, a number of critical risk factors have been identified and advances have been made in alternative treatment options. Ultimately, increasing quality of life for those with Parkinson's disease is the goal
“If we have declared a war against the soil itself, then we are literally committing a species level suicide.” — Dr. Vandana Shiva
New evidence reveals that despite a ban on cultivation of GM rapeseed in Europe, Monsanto and Bayer's plants are now freely growing there.
A growing body of research indicates that Roundup herbicide and its metabolite, AMPA, are vastly more toxic than the public is being told. Activist sentiment aside, the scientific research itself increasingly points to banning this herbicide as the only logical solution.
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.
The mystery of what is causing thousands to die each year from a fatal kidney disease may now be solved, with evidence pointing to the world's most heavily used herbicide Roundup (glyphosate) as the primary culprit.
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
"Historians may look back and write about how willing we are to sacrifice our children and jeopardize future generations with a massive experiment that is based on false promises and flawed science just to benefit the bottom line of a commercial enterprise." So said Don Huber in referring to the use of glyphosate and genetically modified crops.
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
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.
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?
Water is the only "substance" that can exist in a "fourth state" of matter. This fourth phase of water, also called "structured water", is the basis of biological life
Children with autism have a peculiar digestive system disorder, as was recently eloquently described by Dr. Arthur Krigsman at the AutismOne conference. How might glyphosate (Roundup) cause this?
It appears that corporations such as Monsanto can special order "research" from susceptible researchers and/or research institutions and use peer-reviewed journals to transform their propaganda into seemingly legitimate scientific opinion.
