Pao L. Chang – Geneticists have discovered that the human genome consists of not only genes, but also a highly complex genetic switch system, composing of millions of genetic switches.
Infographic – Higher antioxidant levels, lower pesticide loads, better farming practices all lead to a more nutritious end product and are the main reasons why many choose organic over GMO foods.
Video – People at a Monsanto protest in New York City speak why they are there, one fact about Monsanto, and what they hope happens.
Sergey Baranov – Being a free thinker, I would rather say that genetically modified babies would mean the end of humanity as we know it.

Ulson Gunnar, New Eastern Outlook Waking Times It would seem that large agricultural corporations touting genetically modified organisms (GMOs) they claim possess enhanced benefits for farmers and consumers would be proud to differentiate their products on the shelves from organic and traditionally produced food. However that is not the case. Not only is big-ag attempting […]
Dr. Mercola Waking Times Food allergies affect an estimated 15 million Americans, including one in 13 children. Statistics indicate something strange is afoot, as food allergies in children rose by 50 percent between 1997 and 2011 alone. Similarly, in Great Britain one in three people are allergic to something, be it pollen, dust mites, or […]
Martha Rosenberg, AlterNet Waking Times By now, you’ve likely heard of Big Agriculture and Big Pharma, the huge industries behind the food we eat and drugs we take that quite ably tend to avoid government regulation. Less well known is Big Biotech, genetic engineering companies like Monsanto, Novartis and DuPont that work closely with Big […]
Valerie Burke, MSN, EFT-INT, GreenMedInfo Waking Times The claims about genetically engineered foods have been quite lofty. Monsanto and other proponents of biotechnology are fond of saying that genetic engineering is necessary if the world’s food supply is to keep up with seven billion people and counting. They claim GE crops produce higher yields, solve […]
Paul Koberstein, Guest Waking Times Highly toxic pesticides are being applied to GMO fields on Kaua`i at a heavier rate than on most US farms, an analysis of new data reveals. The Hawaiian island of Kaua‘i has become Ground Zero in the intense domestic political battle over genetically modified crops. But the fight isn’t just […]
Sayer Ji, Green Med Info Waking Times A new study indicates that wheat contributes to the growth of pathogenic bacteria in our gut, adding to growing concern that GMO foods are doing the same. A new study published in FEMS Microbiology Ecology titled, “Diversity of the cultivable human gut microbiome involved in gluten metabolism: isolation of microorganisms […]
Ronnie Cummins, Organic Consumers Association Waking Times Since the controversial introduction in the mid-nineties of genetically engineered (GE) food and crops, and the subsequent fast-tracking of those crops by the federal government—with no independent safety-testing or labeling required—there has been a lively debate among activists, both inside and outside the U.S., about how to drive […]
Daniel Jennings, Off The Grid News Waking Times A growing number of farmers are abandoning genetically modified seeds, but it’s not because they are ideologically opposed to the industry. Simply put, they say non-GMO crops are more productive and profitable. Modern Farmer magazine discovered that there is a movement among farmers abandoning genetically modified organisms (GMO) because of […]
Anna Hunt, Staff Writer Waking Times Have you ever considered the similarities between vaccinations and genetically modified foods (also referred to as GMOs)? Both of these ‘innovations’ illustrate clearly our human desire to fix what doesn’t necessarily need fixing, manipulate what doesn’t suit us, and take control over what is mysterious and seems uncontrollable. They […]
Heather Callaghan, Contributor Waking Times Despite genetically modified corn comprising up to 90% of corn crops in the United States, non GMO hybrid corn (often called conventional) has managed to hang on. There appears to be a steady rising market for non-GMO corn. Spectrum Premium Non-GMO is an independent “genetic improvement” seed company based in Indiana […]
Amanda Froelich, Guest Waking Times In case you haven’t heard, it seems TED (recently criticized as joining Monsanto’s GMO agenda) no longer supports any talks regarding GMOs, food as medicine, or even the subject of how food can help prevent behavioral disorders in children. In a recently written letter (that can be found here), TEDx […]
Catherine J. Frompovich, Guest Waking Times Genetic modification of plants—along with cloning of animals, remember Dolly the Sheep (1996)—has been going on without apparent second thoughts being given to the ramifications of what such technological advances do to the biosphere. Recently, concerned citizens have taken a second look at GMO technology relative to the toxic […]
