Many American corn and soybean farmers embrace genetically modified seeds and herbicide chemicals. This biotechnology invention helps them produce higher crop yields without having to worry about weeds. Today’s farmers can just apply, en masse, chemicals like glyphosate, which knock out the weeds, allowing the hybrid corn and soybeans to thrive. While this science seems […]
Thanks to the efforts of Natural News and some other news sources, an increasing number of Americans are becoming more aware of just how damaging to the world’s food system genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have become. The rise in food allergies and gluten sensitivities are evidence that GM foods have impacted the global food chain […]
A heretofore inexplicable fatal, chronic kidney disease that has affected poor farming regions around the globe may be linked to the use of biochemical giant Monsantoâs Roundup herbicide in areas with hard water, a new study has found.
Twelve European ministers have sent the health commissioner of the European Union a letter asking that the European Commission withdraw its proposal to approve a new strain of genetically modified (GM) maize known as “Pioneer 1507.” Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/044084_GM_maize_European_Commission_EU_ministers.html#ixzz2uW7c0xkv
Science has discovered certain gene mutations within many individuals that restrict their body’s ability to effectively function. One of the most important mutations is methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) polymorphisms. Researchers have found this defect in close to 50 percent of the population and it can lead to very poor quality of life and increased risk of […]
In another victory for the chemical industry, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has declared that residue of Bt toxin from genetically modified (GM) Bt crops is permissible at all levels in soy foods for humans and soy feed for animals. The EPA has essentially relieved the biotechnology industry of all responsibility for this genetic […]
