The widely held claim that GMO food is as safe as traditional food has been disproved by a new study showing that Roundup accumulates in genetically modified plants and not conventional and organic ones.
BREAKING: Sri Lanka bans Roundup herbicide after it is linked to a deadly epidemic of kidney disease, and US statistics showing a similar link between herbicide use and acute and chronic kidney conditions.
A federal jury in San Francisco has found that Monsanto’s weed-killer glyphosate was “a substantial factor” in causing a man’s cancer, delivering a major new blow to the agrochemical giant now owned by Bayer who acquired it last year.
A shocking new study finds that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, "...may be the most biologically disruptive chemical in our environment," capable of contributing to a wide range of fatal human diseases.
The bombshell GMO/Roundup study brought to the forefront the link between what we eat and breast cancer risk, less than two weeks before the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Will we let this connection be pinkwashed away?
Studies document substantial differences of GM maize and GM soybean from their conventional non-GM counterparts, exposing a permissive regulatory regime that has failed miserably in protecting public health and biodiversity
With global rates of celiac disease (CD) accelerating, a new study reveals a link between this popular pain killer and intestinal damage consistent with those observed in CD.
The coral reefs are dying and the seas are increasingly depleted of sea life. Could Roundup weed killer be partially to blame?
What do GMOs and vaccines have in common? You may be surprised to learn how many overlapping issues they share, and why both technologies should be scrutinized far more closely.
"Historians may look back and write about how willing we are to sacrifice our children and jeopardize future generations with a massive experiment that is based on false promises and flawed science just to benefit the bottom line of a commercial enterprise." So said Don Huber in referring to the use of glyphosate and genetically modified crops.
The EPA, whose mission is to "to protect human health and the environment," has approved Monsanto's request to allow levels of glyphosate (Roundup) contamination in your food up to a million times higher than have been found carcinogenic.
Above all else, the United States is the marketing capital of the world. Our society is built around products and services and all the ways they are advertised to us in a way designed to outpace the competition. While it may be unethical to do so, marketing fosters its share of lying, truth-twisting and censorship by omission. The food industry is a model food chain — the big guys try to swallow the small guys, which is why organic foods are slandered by food giants and Big Agra.
A growing body of research indicates that Roundup herbicide and its metabolite, AMPA, are vastly more toxic than the public is being told. Activist sentiment aside, the scientific research itself increasingly points to banning this herbicide as the only logical solution.
Today a jury in Oakland, California awarded more than $2 billion to a couple who charged that Bayer AG's glyphosate-based Roundup weed killer caused their cancer. How will Bayer continue to sustain such punishment without filing bankruptcy?
It has come to light that the U.S. government is withholding $277 million in aid money from El Salvador in order to pressure it to accept Monsanto's GM seeds.
Disturbing new research published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology indicates that genetically modified (GM) crops with stacked traits, that is, with multiple traits such as glyphosate-herbicide resistance and Bacillus Thuringensis (Bt) insecticidal toxins engineered together into the same plant, are likely far more dangerous to human health than previously believed, due to their synergistic toxicity.
Highly concerning new research reveals chemicals used in industrial agriculture are up to 1,000 times more toxic than the regulatory system presently states.
You might ask, "why all the fuss about agricultural genetically modified organisms (GMOs)?" After all, regulatory agencies have approved these technologies for widespread application and consumption, so they must be safe, right? Well, the truth is that there is no agency and no industry that works to protect our health. At best, the EPA, USDA, and FDA attempt to respond to our disease after the cause is widespread.
Glyphosate has likely caused more damage to human health than any other chemical ever produced. Indeed, it is probably a cause of the explosion in chronic diseases. Surely civilization cannot be maintained when the average person is irrevocably ill. This trajectory of human misery must come to an end.
The world's most popular weedkiller, used at a rate of 88,000 tons in the US alone, has recently been discovered to be highly toxic to fish within the pars per billion range -- a concentration below agricultural applications.
“If we have declared a war against the soil itself, then we are literally committing a species level suicide.” — Dr. Vandana Shiva
The GMO mass experiment on the public is producing results—terrifying ones. GM toxic elements can be found in nearly all pregnant women and children. (Update of the article featured in Genetic Roulette movie
Two studies published in the past six months reveal a disturbing finding: glyphosate-based herbicide formulations such as Roundup® suppress the growth of beneficial gut bacteria and lead to the overgrowth of harmful ones.
Given the weight of the research, you are insane if you consume GMOs. Here's why...
