Charged with protecting the health and welfare of Americans, the FDA has just approved the first ever genetically modified animal to be sold in American supermarkets – salmon. Worse yet – you won’t have the benefit of knowing, as the salmon is not required to be GMO labeled.
Do you think the masses can overcome Monsanto? Do you think the world can be fed by 100% Non-GMO foods?
Mainstream economists are sounding the alarm over the financial decline of both fast food giant McDonald’s and biotech juggernaut Monsanto.
This vote goes against numerous EU states that have made it clear in recent months that they plan to instate total bans on GM crops.
Of 100 major American crops, 70 are pollinated by bees; without them, we might not have apples, almonds, carrots, or avocados. To encourage interest and awareness in the plight of the bees, Seedles partners with local food companies to give out free seed bombs.
As research doubting the safety of Monsanto products continues to mount, multiple lawsuits are cropping up both in the United States and around the world.
The strategic centerpiece of Monsanto PR is to focus on the promotion of one single compelling idea. The idea that they want you to believe in is that only they can produce enough for the future population. They wish you to therefore believe that non-industrial systems of farming, such as all those which use agroecological methods, or SRI, or are localized and family-oriented, or which use organic methods, or non-GMO seeds, cannot feed the world. This same PR strategy is followed by every major commercial participant in the industrial food system.
What happens when a private company with a history of producing some of the most toxic chemicals & food on the planet starts facing public pressure to label their products? Well, if it’s Monsanto, you take a page out of Big Tobacco’s playbook & hatch a secret plan to enlist public university scientists to bury the potential harm of your genetically engineered crops.
DNA packaging during sperm development is essential for male fertility, and when this process somehow goes awry, the result is infertility.
Monsanto is guilty of “false advertising” on the Roundup label — “Glyphosate targets an enzyme found in plants, but not in people or pets” — and this is false! Monsanto argues that — because EPA approved the Roundup label — it must therefore be true.
The new documentary Bought, that Dr. Wayne Dyer calls “a life-changing movie” dives deeply into the inner workings of the industries at the core of our food and healthcare system, exploring the truth about how vaccines and drugs are developed and rushed to market and the ongoing secrecy behind the genetic engineering of our food supply.
In industrial agriculture the knowledge of living systems is totally missing since industrial agriculture was externally driven by using war chemicals as inputs for agriculture. Soil was defined as an empty container for holding synthetic fertilizers, plants were defined as machines running on external inputs. This meant substituting the ecological functions and services that nature and farmers can provide through renewal of soil fertility, pest and weed control, and seed improvement. But it also implied ignorance of the destruction of the functions by the toxic chemicals applied to agriculture.
The third annual ‘March against Monsanto’ protest took place yesterday in cities around the world. Activists protested the monopoly the GMO giant has in controlling food supply. Protesters say Monsanto controls 90 percent of the seed market in the US.
Some have said that India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, arrived at the nation’s pro-GMO position with the help of generous campaign funding from a GMO lobby, but that hasn’t stopped thousands of Indian farmers from demonstrating against Monsanto and their biotech cronies in a massive grassroots movement that shuns anti-farmer practices and genetically modified crop farming.
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.
