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.

Foods and The ‘Etheric Field’

Soren Dreier, Guest Waking Times The other day I went to the veggie store and I was looking at the tomatoes. They have three kinds: First kind is more or less the same.

Link Found Between Food Allergies and Farm Antibiotics

Can GMOs Help Feed the World?

Valerie Burke, MSN, EFT-INT, GreenMedInfo Waking Times The claims about genetically engineered foods have been quite lofty.

GMOs: Ban Them or Label Them?

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

6 Astounding Parallels Between Vaccines and GMOs

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 also

Improved Non-GMO Corn Performing Better Than GMO Crops

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.

Are TED Talks Now Against Alternative Health?

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

Labeling Is Not the Only Thing About GMOs We Don’t Know

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

3 Companies Using GMOs in Baby Formula

Christina Sarich, Staff Writer Waking Times It seems with the many reports of birth defects, organ failure, cancer, and other unsavory health conditions associated with GMO consumption, we should limit the use of GMO in baby products. After all, babies are very sensitive to the foods they consume, and we already know that pesticides found in mother’s milk can be damaging. Below

Why Is The Food Industry Poisoning Us With Trillions of Nanoparticles?

Sayer Ji, GreenMedInfo Waking Times The U.S. food industry is notorious for poisoning the very consumers who drive their multi-billion dollar enterprise, even spending millions against their right to informed consent (truthful GMO labeling). So, is it any wonder that this deregulated and increasingly deranged juggernaut is experimenting on its own customer base by exposing

5 Big Signs The Global Engine of Deceit, Lies and Control Are Coming To End

Marco Torres, Prevent Disease Waking Times If you don’t see it coming, you may have been hiding in a very dark place for the last decade.

How Genetically Engineered Foods Will Be Eradicated

Dr. Mercola Waking Times We’re in really exciting times with regards to shifting the tide against genetically engineered (GE) foods and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). As you know, I was a big supporter of the California GMO labeling campaign, and while we lost the vote by an incredibly narrow margin last November, Proposition 37 catalyzed an

Beware Foods Behaving Badly

Zen Gardner, Guest Waking Times More GMO madness in the news. Apparently the “all clear” signal Washington has given the industry via the Monsanto Protection Act and other long term sanctions has the big dollar genetic engineering industry in a frenzy.
