You care about your health, and you’re also vigilant of the fact that foods that have been genetically modified have been shown to cause allergies, organ failure, and general toxicity.
Therefore it should be essential such scary franken-foods are avoided. To not only better your own health but prevent mineral-loss in soil from conventional growing methods, take care to buy the following foods organic, or avoid them altogether
Nine-year-old named Daniel Bissonnette (along with hundreds of other scientists, and then hundreds more) is telling people everywhere, including his friends at school, to ditch their GMO sunchips, and to go organic.
Starting from January 1st 2015, the German Poultry Association (ZDG), will have to stop using GMO feed for both egg and poultry meat production. From this date forward, food retailers will only accept poultry that has been raised on GM-free feed, and milk and eggs which come from cows fed GM-free feed.
Hillary Clinton’s public support of GMOs includes wrongly equating the age-old practice of seed hybridization with modern genetic engineering, in order to make the case that genetic engineering has been around since the beginning of farming.
A letter was sent to the Vatican in April by 8 researchers from 6 different countries who feel very strongly that international companies authorized to manipulate life forms, including seed, threatens food security, and that allowance of GMO encourages bio-piracy.
Cancer treatment represents a 200 billion dollar a year industry and is largely derived from synthetic versions of natural plants. Pharmaceutical companies (often under the guise of environmental protection) team with developers to relocate tribes, steal their knowledge of the indigenous healing plants, modify and make a synthetic version of the plant, and patent the derivative they create.
Did you know that your Heinz ketchup, which the company claims is ‘all natural,’ is really full of toxic, genetically modified ingredients? It’s bursting with GM corn, which contains at least 5 things that really shouldn’t be in a food condiment.
The true harm perpetrated by the makers of GMOs and glyphosate-based herbicides were discussed by experts the last week of July in Beijing at the Food Safety & Sustainable Agriculture (FSSA) Forum.
First Monsanto took over our Congress, then our Supreme Court, and now they are trying to take over journalism. Without freedom of speech and fair reporting, none of us would ever know just what hideous deeds these monopolizing corporations were up to. In Monsanto’s latest inexcusable move, the company is trying to have a veteran reporter fired for reporting on genetically modified organisms fairly.
Coca-Cola and its products are becoming boycotted garbage due to the growing public awareness concerning companies who are supporting the defeat of GMO labeling. Now, you can tell this mega-corporation that while the $3.2 million spent to help defeat Proposition 37 in California and I-522 in Washington may have worked before, the organization is about to lose millions more in public product support. We have a right to know what is in our food, and nothing will stop the grassroots efforts to rid the world of GMO for good.
Victory! The EPA was urged by public health advocates, environmental groups, and organic farmers alike to deny an ‘emergency’ request to use propazine on superweeds invading 3 million crops of GM cotton in Texas.
Most farmers in El Salvador prefer to source their seeds locally, and aren’t interested in Monsanto’s GM seed. Farmers have successfully used indigenous seed, and have never needed to rely on biotech for a viable seed source. Indigenous seeds make sense not only economically, but environmentally, as well.
Major food companies experienced major backlash from consumers when their contributions to the anti-labeling campaign in California (Prop. 37) came to light. The insanity has gone too far. It’s time to boycott every single product owned by members of the GMA, including natural and organic brands.
Human trials for the GMO banana have begun in Iowa. Volunteers are offering up their blood samples after eating bits of banana tinged with orange, receiving $900 for their subjection to the latest biotech concoction. This is the first human trial in the US on a genetically engineered banana that has been altered to contain higher levels of beta carotene, which our bodies then convert to Vitamin A. This is the second food that biotech has tried to engineer to boost Vitamin A levels, since they are low in developing countries, and the cause of serious disease of malnutrition.
