Victory: GMOs and neonicotinoid insecticides are now BANNED on Colorado county-owned land

Is Colorado’s Boulder County paving the way for our country to be free of GMOs and toxic insecticides? It sure looks like it; the county has made headlines with their recent banning of certain GMO crops from being grown on county-owned land. And they’ve even banned the use of harmful neonicotinoid pesticides (neonics) on the […]

Common insecticides found to be far more dangerous to health than previously believed

Common insecticides found to be far more dangerous to health than previously believed

Neonicotinoids, a class of pesticides in wide use, may be more destabilizing to agriculture than previously presumed, according to a new study from Penn State. “The team’s research challenges the previously held belief that neonicotinoid seed coatings have little to no effect on predatory insect populations,” ScienceDaily summarized. The findings suggest that more work needs […]

U.S. FDA FINALLY Shamed into Testing for Monsanto’s Glyphosate Herbicide in Food

U.S. FDA FINALLY Shamed into Testing for Monsanto’s Glyphosate Herbicide in Food

Sure, consumers are concerned about eating glyphosate. Wouldn’t you be? If 75% of air and rain samples tested contain glyphosate, it is highly likely that the ‘probable’ human carcinogen is also in our food supply. Now that the World Health Organization is calling a spade a spade, it appears the US Food and Drug Administration is […]

Venezuela passes new law rejecting GMOs and seed patents nationwide

Venezuela passes new law rejecting GMOs and seed patents nationwide

In 2004, President Hugo Chavez prevented the planting of 500,000 acres of Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) corn. Since then the Venezuelan farmers have been expressing strong feelings against growing or buying GM seeds. However, this didn’t stop big corporations from trying to push their transgenic crops through in times of economic and political disturbance. A […]

US EPA Reverses Decision on Dow’s Toxic Enlist Duo Registration

The United States Environmental Protection Agency just reversed its registration of a next-generation herbicide meant for mass use on America’s crops. The Natural Resources Defense Council sued the US EPA for green-lighting Dow AgroScience’s latest one-two punch in herbicidal products, a toxic concoction made with both glyphosate and 2,4-D (toxic chemicals). The Agrichemical company was […]

Monsanto ‘Deliberately Covered Up Data’ Proving Glyphosate is Cancerous for 4 Decades

Monsanto ‘Deliberately Covered Up Data’ Proving Glyphosate is Cancerous for 4 Decades

What will it take to shut down Monsanto’s doors irrevocably? Likely it will be the same type of lawsuit that finally pulled the shades on the tobacco industry. If Big Tobacco eventually had to pay a $206 billion settlement over 25 years for lying about the health impacts of cigarettes, what do you think Monsanto […]

Biotech industry pushing genetically engineered crops that they insist aren't genetically engineered

Biotech industry pushing genetically engineered crops that they insist aren’t genetically engineered

In the face of a growing public sentiment against genetically engineered (GE) crops, the biotechnology industry is pursuing a new strategy: Claiming that new GE technologies are so different from older ones that products produced using them should not be classified as genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The industry is now using these techniques to introduce […]

Meet the Senator Who Just Stood up to GMO’s and Said ‘No Way’

Gary Hooser stands up for the island of Kaua’i as one of the city council members and one of the few former senators who is speaking out against biotech. Specifically, this fight is against biotech giant Syngenta, a company which doesn’t even spray its own chemicals in its native country of Switzerland. As Hooser points out, one […]

Watch How this Incredible Public Food Park Feeds 200,000 a Month

It is becoming more apparent that we need to begin reclaiming our food supply through small-scale, wide-spread farming practices. We can no longer rely on Big Food to supply us with the nutritious food we need, and we certainly can’t rely on mega chemical companies like Monsanto to feed us with their genetically modified creations.
