Video – Halloween night. Are you aware of the cosmic origins of All Hallows’ Eve?
Dr. Mercola – Instead of taking a proactive approach to save the environment and human life, the USDA has decided to deregulate Dow Chemical’s next-generation GE crops…
Christina Sarich – Monsanto experiences significant losses, attributed to farmers in major agricultural zones favoring soy over GMO corn because of falling crop prices.
Heather Callaghan – These chemicals that farmers use, look what they do to an insect. What is it doing to the farmer?
Marco Torres, Prevent Disease Waking Times Invoking the risk of famine as a justification for GMOs is “a deceitful strategy, no different from…Russian roulette,” according to a statistician and professor at New York University. Nassim Nicholas Taleb is a scholar, statistician, Wall Street analyst and advisor, professor at New York University, and the bestselling author of Fooled by […]
Valerie Burke, GreenMedInfo Waking Times What if you found out that your child was being slipped a dangerous drug in his school lunches, without your consent? What if you discovered that this drug never underwent the usual safety testing, as the government turned a bind eye? Would you be shocked? Outraged? Or perhaps in a […]
Dr. Mercola Waking Times Industrial chemical-based agriculture, which produces the vast majority of US food crops, is actually destroying the soil that makes the growing of food possible in the first place. This is not true in other countries. Worldwide, 70 percent of the food is grown in backyards or small farms. That number is […]
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 […]
Christina Sarich, Natural Society Waking Times Big wins can happen in small places. The West Virginia State Supreme Court finalized a big blow to the biotech giant Monsanto this month, finishing a settlement causing Monsanto to pay $93 million to the tiny town of Nitro, West Virginia for poisoning citizens with Agent Orange chemicals. The settlement was approved […]
Paul Koberstein, Guest Waking Times The Garden Island’s rare plants and wildlife are being put at risk by the toxic chemicals used on GMO test fields. Given its fragile and unusually rich ecology, the Hawaiian island of Kaua`i seems ill-suited as a site for agricultural experiments that use heavy amounts of toxic chemicals. But four […]
Hanzai E, Lost in the Bamboo Forest Waking Times Of all the mega-corps running amok, Monsanto has consistently outperformed its rivals, earning the crown as “most evil corporation on Earth!” Not content to simply rest upon its throne of death, atop a mountain of rotting corpses, it remains focused on newer, more scientifically innovative ways to harm the planet […]
Sayer Ji, Green Med Info Waking Times 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. A concerning new study published in Chemosphere shows that […]
John Deike, EcoWatch Waking Times A new U.S. Geological Survey has concluded that pesticides can be found in, well, just about anything. Roundup herbicide, Monsanto’s flagship weed killer, was present in 75 percent of air and rainfall test samples, according to the study, which focused on Mississippi’s highly fertile Delta agricultural region. GreenMedInfo reports new research, soon to be published […]
Dr. Mercola Waking Times There are now many studies clearly documenting that if you eat processed foods, you’re being exposed to toxic herbicides. These toxic chemicals have been found in everything from breast milk to umbilical cords and placentas. This of course means that children are now born with a chemical burden unknown to previous […]
Jefferey Jaxen, Contributor Waking Times It is clear that we have just witnessed the largest single worldwide protest against a company and their products. What’s also clear is the major public disgust for anything bearing the words ‘Genetically Modified Organism’. Monsanto’s only refuge lies in the massively funded mouthpieces of news clips and public figures, combined with a legal stranglehold on […]
Dr. Mercola Waking Times In 2009, a French court found Monsanto guilty of lying; falsely advertising its Roundup herbicide as “biodegradable,” “environmentally friendly” and claiming it “left the soil clean.” We’re now starting to understand just how false such statements are. For example, last summer, a groundbreaking study revealed a previously unknown mechanism of harm from glyphosate, the active […]
Emily Cassidy, Environmental Working Group Waking Times A new study led by scientists from the Arctic University of Norway has detected “extreme levels” of Roundup, the agricultural herbicide manufactured by Monsanto, in genetically engineered (GE) soy. The study, coming out in June’s issue of Food Chemistry and available online, looked at 31 different soybean plants on Iowa farms and compared […]
Brandon Baker, Eco Watch Waking Times Monsanto didn’t achieve $11.8 billion in sales and 404 facilities in 66 countries all on its own. The company is valued at $60 billion in the marketplace with 525 million shares outstanding, but the three largest mutual fund shareholders, Vanguard, Fidelity and State Street, own nearly 16 percent of Monsanto stock. By comparison, the […]
John Deike, EcoWatch Waking Times Corporations, backed by influential lobbyists and western governments, dealt major blows this month against activists who are fighting to limit the cultivation of genetically modified organisms(GMOs). The European Commission gave DuPont Pioneer the green light to freely grow insecticidal corn, also known as TC1507. Photo courtesy of ShutterstockOn Feb. 11, the European […]
