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.
I don’t know what’s worse: a product full of GMOs and chemically-derived additives that proudly lauds its healthfulness and humanitarian benefits, or, a manufacturer that blatantly hides the fact they are using GMO ingredients by keeping them off the label?
In a flashback as intense and disturbing as a war trauma, Dow Chemicals is setting up the conditions for the return of one of the main toxic ingredients in Agent Orange -- a chemical which it manufactured for use in Vietnam, and which was linked to over 400,000 birth defects among those exposed there.
This and future generations at risk for alarming rise in serious disease due to use of glyphosate (aka Roundup herbicide). Countries around the world are recognizing the danger, while here in America the use of this chemical continues.
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.
Correlation does not mean causation. Is the Zika virus being used as a scapegoat for Pharma's dangerous adverse effects?
Impossible Foods claim they want to 'transform the global food system', but their actions suggest they want to keep the status quo going
New research indicates that the microbial biodiversity of the soil and our food is being dramatically impacted by the use of herbicides like glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller. Researchers have proposed that many soil organisms, which are indispensable for the productivity of the soil in agriculture, as well as in raw and fermented dairy production, may be undergoing endangerment, if not also in some cases extinction in certain geographic regions of the world.
Roundup herbicide (glyphosate) in our air, rain, groundwater, soil and most food in the U.S., and an increasing body of research reveals it has cancer-promoting properties.
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.
NHF Slams the Global Pesticide Empire.
A recent study shows that drinking water in Iowa City, Iowa is contaminated with insecticides. The implications of this disturbing discovery could be detrimental to public health.
Generations are being harmed by agricultural chemicals, but Monsanto's best kept secret lies in 3 decades of evidence that support industry knowledge of devastating impact to society's most vulnerable.
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?
Highly concerning new research reveals chemicals used in industrial agriculture are up to 1,000 times more toxic than the regulatory system presently states.
Dr. Stephanie Seneff, MIT scientist and glyphosate expert answers questions from Zen Honeycutt...
One quarter of our global food supply contains a hidden hormone-disrupting danger that can cause serious acute, as well as chronic adverse health effects. A recent study on young girls in New Jersey found detectable concentrations in the urine of 2/3rds of the population sampled.
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.
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
GMO Impossible burger tests 11x higher for glyphosate weed killer residue than Beyond Meat burger.
New evidence reveals that despite a ban on cultivation of GM rapeseed in Europe, Monsanto and Bayer's plants are now freely growing there.
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.
The pesticide industry and EU regulators knew as long ago as the 1980s-1990s that Roundup, the world's best selling herbicide, causes birth defects – but they failed to inform the public.
The GM farming system has made exposure to Roundup herbicide a daily fact of our existence, and according to the latest US Geological Survey study its probably in the air you are breathing...
