A study finds that the epidemic of fatal kidney disease afflicting populations exposed to GM farming practices in Sri Lanka is real and not just hypothetical
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.
The management of Monsanto's Roundup demonstrates that there is truly no limit to the depths that our own governments will go when they're in bed with international corporations.
How much longer will we deny the growing body of research linking Roundup to infertility before calling this chemical a contraceptive?
Highly concerning new research reveals chemicals used in industrial agriculture are up to 1,000 times more toxic than the regulatory system presently states.
A new study reveals the multi-dimensional problem of Roundup 'weedkiller' to human health, proving that your blood is not 'Roundup Ready.'
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.
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 EPA, whose mission is to "to protect human health and the environment," has approved Monsanto's request to allow levels of glyphosate (Roundup) contamination in your food up to a million times higher than have been found carcinogenic.
A new study offers 'scientific proof' that Roundup herbicide, far from a cancer causing agent, may help to cure lethal cancers some day.
A new study reveals a hitherto unknown mechanism behind how the world's most popular GMO herbicide harms the brain.
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?
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...
"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.
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?
In the first ever testing on glyphosate herbicide in the breast milk of American women, Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse have found 'high' levels in 3 out of the 10 samples tested.
The coral reefs are dying and the seas are increasingly depleted of sea life. Could Roundup weed killer be partially to blame?
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?
A new review of the toxicology literature on occupational pesticide exposure has found a link between glyphosate (Roundup)and B-cell lymphoma.
Herbicides used in GM farming like Roundup have long been understood to be toxic, that much is true, but the ongoing debate rages over to what degree they are toxic. Shocking research indicates that the so-called "inert" ingredients in these glyphosate formulations are actually highly toxic, and amplify the toxicity of the active ingredient.
Today a jury in Oakland, California awarded more than $2 billion to a couple who charged that Bayer AG's glyphosate-based Roundup weed killer caused their cancer. How will Bayer continue to sustain such punishment without filing bankruptcy?
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.
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
Monsantos' herbicide has finally been declared a "probable carcinogen" by a WHO associated group, vindicating those who have been raising red flags about its harms for years.
