Video – Why do the news and so many media site offer so little hard-hitting investigative journalism?
Christina Sarich – If then, more than 80% of the ‘staple’ crops in the US are planted with GM varieties of corn, soy, and cotton, then we can assume that we are all eating a big heaping helping of those herbicides and pesticides, right?
Dr. Mercola – In the US, there are about 80,000 registered chemicals used. Of these, only a few hundred are actually tested for safety, and even that testing is considered to be inadequate by most toxicologists.
Dr. Eldon Dahl – “People are not allergic to gluten; they are allergic to toxins – we do not have pure food any longer.”
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…
Dave Mihalovic – Autism spectrum disorder likely has a number of causes involving synergistic toxicity between vaccines, the environment and some degree of genetic susceptibility…
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 […]
Heather Callaghan, Contributor Waking Times Based on the sheer amount of research studies available dating back to the 1950s on the association between industrial chemicals and neurobehavioral disorders – it makes sense that more recent studies are finally starting to emphasize the chemical/neurodevelopmental disorder connection. That is, additional links to keynotes seen in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) […]
Heather Callaghan, Contributor Waking Times Netherlands researchers fear the second coming of Silent Spring. “Neonicotinoids were always regarded as selective toxins. But our results suggest that they may affect the entire ecosystem,” says Hans de Kroon of Radboud University and co-author of a study recently published in Nature journal. It’s not just the bees. There […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
April McCarthy, Prevent Disease Waking Times Two widely used neonicotinoids–a class of insecticide–appear to significantly harm honey bee colonies over the winter, particularly during colder winters, according to a new study from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). The study replicated a 2012 finding from the same research group that found a link between low […]
The Co-Evolution of Bees and Flowers: An Electric Symbiosis Not to Be Interrupted with Pesticide Chemicals
Christina Sarich, Staff Writer Waking Times If you are still spraying your nursery flowers and plants with neonicotinoid insecticides, you are likely interrupting an age-old dance carried out between bees and flowers. Not only are bees dying from the use of these dangerous chemicals, but the act is interrupting a long and beneficial history between […]
Dr. Mercola Waking Times Three decades ago, when I was still in medical school, autism affected one in 10,000 children.1, 2 What changed between then and now to cause one in 50 children3 to become autistic? Mounting research—not to mention plain logic—indicates that brain disorders are the result of excessive exposure to toxins from multiple sources—including the mother, […]
Dramatic Increase in Kidney Disease in the US and Abroad Linked To Roundup (Glyphosate) ‘Weedkiller’
Sayer Ji, GreenMedInfo Waking Times Last month, we reported on a mysterious global epidemic of fatal kidney disease, focusing on a study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health1 that laid down evidence showing the herbicide Roundup (glyphosate) is responsible for an epidemic of kidney-related deaths in a rural farming region of Northern Sri […]
Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer Waking Times With all of the immediate problems facing people these days, it is difficult to be concerned and proactive about the looming environmental crises that will affect us in big ways in the not-too-distant future. After all, who has time to do anything about radiation in the Pacific Ocean when […]
Amanda Froelich, Guest Waking Times The secret is out – bees have been disappearing for almost a decade now, and scientists are scrambling to understand why. Some sources relay that the colonies all across the world are vanishing due to pesticides, electromagnetic frequencies, mites, and even GMO crops, but what researches have recently found to be the cause of the […]
Dr. Mercola Waking Times Organophosphate pesticides are known for their hazards to human health. Prenatal exposure, for example, has been linked to delayed brain development, reduced IQ, and attention deficits1. As a result, pyrethroids2—synthetic chemicals derived from natural chemicals found in chrysanthemums—have risen in popularity over the past decade. There are currently more than 3,500 […]
Agrichemical Companies Have Destroyed Argentina’s Farming Towns With Soaring Cancer Rates And Quadrupling Birth Defects
Natasha Longo, Prevent Disease Waking Times Argentina’s agricultural industry was dramatically transformed by the introduction of genetically modified plants in 1996. A country once known for its grass-fed beef is now dominated by genetically engineered soy, corn and cotton. Farmers in the Latin American country use twice as much pesticide per acre as farmers in the […]
