Biotech Goes Wild. A few miles outside Sacramento, several large greenhouses sit behind a fence.

Biotech Goes Wild

In the summer the familiar heads of sunflowers are visible through the glass and in the fields surrounding the greenhouses. The plants are tall, straight and healthy, with thick leaves that reach for the California sunlight. They look exactly like sunflower plants grown throughout the United States-except for the plastic cages around each flower. Kanada nedsmittat av GMO.

New Norwegian Study Accuses Monsanto Of Falsely Claiming GMOs Are Safe

International findings on the safety of Genetically Modified Organisms are rarely reported on in Western mainstream media. Despite fierce resistance to GMOs in other countries, North Americans are just now starting to learn that GMOs are unsafe for human consumption, and that they pose significant environmental risks, too. This is precisely why dozens upon dozens of countries around the world have completely banned GMOs from being imported or grown in their country.

While major Western government health organizations say the science is clear on their safety, multiple governments, researchers, and scientific publications around the world beg to differ.

Why Genetically Engineered Trees Harm The Planet & How We Can Stop Them

It’s a term that has caused an overwhelming amount of controversy and concern in the food industry because of their effect on our health and the environment. And while the battle to get back to the basics and live from the earth once again is ongoing, there seems to be a new threat to this ideology.

Help Vermont stand up to Monsanto. The world's most hated corporation got even more evil.

Help Vermont stand up to Monsanto

Monsanto and its allies in the Grocery Manufacturers Association have announced they're suing the tiny, rural U.S. state of Vermont to stop a new law that simply requires genetically engineered foods to be labeled. In fact, the mere threat of a multi-million dollar lawsuit nearly caused the state to back off the labeling law altogether. But Vermont is refusing to back down -- and they’re asking for our help.

University Study in Iowa Finds that Non-GMO Crop System Boosts Yields, Improves Soil Quality With Far Less Herbicides and Fertilizers. According to a recent study conducted by an Iowa State University agronomist, diverse non-genetically modified crop rotation systems can provide a variety of benefits to farmers and perform better than their genetically modified (or GMO for genetically modified organism) crop system counterparts.

GMO whistleblower Dr. Thierry Vrain unveils insane insider information on engineered food

When I was on the payroll, I was the designated scientist of my institute to address public groups and reassure them that genetically engineered crops and foods were safe. There is, however, a growing body of scientific research - done mostly in Europe, Russia, and other countries - showing that diets containing engineered corn or soya cause serious health problems in laboratory mice and rats. Are you consuming the 9 most genetically modified foods? By: Amanda Froelich, True Activist. 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. 1.

Many food options are supplemented with soy, but it’s one of the most common foods to be grown genetically modified. Many products also contain soy derivatives: Vitamin E supplements, tofu, cereals, veggie burgers, soy sausages, tamari, soy sauce, chips, ice cream, frozen yogurt, protein powder, margarine, soy cheese, crackers, breads, cookies, chocolates, candy, fried foods, shampoo, cosmetics, enriched flours, pastas, and even bubble bath.

Study Determines At Least 18 Million Americans Affected By This Disorder Because of GMOs. Genetically Modified Foods are making more noise, this time it’s because GM foods like soy and corn might be responsible for a wide variety of gluten-related disorders. In America alone, approximately 18 million people suffer from this type of ailment. The study was recently released by the Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT), and uses data from the US department of Agriculture, US Environmental Protection Agency, medical journal reviews as well as other independent research.(1)(2) The authors relate GM foods to five conditions that may either trigger or exacerbate gluten-related disorders, including the autoimmune disorder, Celiac Disease:
