Federal Judge Drops Bomb in the Monsanto vs. Maui Case

Federal Judge Drops Bomb in the Monsanto vs. Maui Case

On April 15, Federal Judge Susan Oki Mollway dropped a bomb in [the case of] Monsanto vs. Maui. She ruled that the case cannot go to Hawaii State Court, but will remain under her federal jurisdiction. The federal government’s support for Monsanto is even greater than the State Government of Hawaii’s. And the will of Maui County voters—to put a temporary block on Monsanto’s toxic, local, GMO/pesticide experiments—is now diluted at a new remote level. Maui County can’t enforce the vote, and neither can the State of Hawaii. Now a federal court will decide whether to nullify the will of Maui voters. This is dictatorship.

New Analysis: “GE Crops Have Done NOTHING To Improve Global Food Security”; Here’s How to Increase Production & Reduce Waste Without GMOs

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) released a new analysis on Tuesday debunking the myth that genetically engineered crops (often called GMOs) will be crucial to “feeding the world” as the population soars. My report takes a hard look at recent research and concludes that so far, GE crops have done nothing to improve global food security – and there’s little reason to think that they will any time soon.

Urban Farming: Solving Problems In The U.S. Food System

Urban Farming: Solving Problems In The U.S. Food System

Urban farming, particularly with vertical systems, speaks to (and can possibly resolve) issues like food accessibility, scale and affordability. “We need to improve our distribution, eat higher quality food, and make sure that the hungriest, poorest people have access to the highest quality food. It doesn’t make any sense to not provide people with nutritious food, because you end up paying for it on the back end with medical costs and a host of other things,” said Josh Lee, a.k.a. “Farmer Josh,” the co-founder of Green Top Farms: A Queens-based urban farming company that grows and distributes salad greens to New Yorkers.

2 Surefire Ways to Know If You’re Buying the New GMO Apple

The Food and Drug Administration recently approved some genetically modified varieties of apples and potatoes that do not bruise or brown. The agency says they are “as safe and nutritious as their [non-GMO] conventional counterparts,” yet is shockingly considering a label for the creations. But if history tells us anything, it’s that these products will not get a GMO label – so how will you know if you’re eating it?

Is This a Major Turning Point in the Battle Against Pesticides & GMOs?

When paradigms shift, tyrants fall, or corporations lose their market, it is often not from some spectacular event, but by a single, humanizing display. We have just witnessed such an event during the interview of high-profile GMO advocate Patrick Moore. Additionally, this viral video has exploded in popularity giving yet another sign, along with recoiling public dollars, that genetically modified organisms are not wanted. In it, Moore does a near perfect job in less than two minutes to show the world the unempathetic, hypocritical face of the biotech/GMO industry stripped of all spin, lies, and deception.

How GMO Foods Feed Junk Food Profits – Not the World

A study published in the Lancet just last month reveals that the world has witnessed an ‘unacceptably slow’ rate of progress toward overcoming the obesity problem. Over the last decade, the world has gotten fatter, not fitter, and fed with less nutritionally-dense foods. Why? GMOs account for high fructose corn syrup, and corn solids, sugar from GM sugar beets, as well as ingredients like GM soy used in highly-processed, nutritionally lacking foods that certainly add to the obesity rates.

Great. But what about potential harm to the humans who consume them?
