Humanity Has Become One Massive Genetic Experiment: What Everyone Should Know About GMOs

By Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution

Are you concerned about Genetically Modified Foods? Here’s (GMOs Revealed) a great documentary that addresses many of the questions and concerns most people have today. 

In March 2014, scientists from Indiana University announced that they had conducted research to examine the operations of the fruit fly genome “in greater detail than ever before possible” and had identified “thousands of new genes, transcripts and proteins.” Their results indicated that the fly’s genome is “far more complex than previously suspected and suggests that the same will be true of the genomes of other higher organisms.” Of the approximately 1,500 new genes that were discovered, 536 of them were found within areas that were previously assumed to be gene-free zones. Furthermore, when the flies were subjected to stresses, small changes in expression level at thousands of genes occurred, and four newly modelled genes were expressed altogether differently.

MSM, University Blaming Russia for Anti-GMO Sentiment

By Brandon TurbevilleNatural Blaze

The American mainstream corporate media has turned into a literal madhouse in the period of the last two years.

Any doubt whether or not mainstream outlets are actually propaganda outlets should have been erased around the time of the 2016 elections. Now, however, it appears that outlets are trying to see just how ridiculous their propaganda can be before the majority of people abandon them altogether.

Your Taxpayer Dollars Now Funding GMO Corporate Propaganda

By 

Congress wants to spend millions peddling corporate talking points on GMOs.

We recently reported to you how Congress planned to spend $3 million of your dollars to teach people the virtues of GMOs – as if Big Biotech can’t spend its own money on that! It appears they got their wish…

While Congress hasn’t accomplished much in 2017, it did manage to pass a budget resolution — and within that budget, a sum of $3 million stands out. Continue reading Your Taxpayer Dollars Now Funding GMO Corporate Propaganda

Call to Stop Using Africans As GMO Guinea Pigs

By Heather Callaghan, Natural Blaze

The Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa is calling for an immediate halt on imports to South Africa of Monsanto’s high-risk second-generation gene-silencing GM maize meant for human consumers.

African Center for Biodiversity reports:

In an open letter to African biosafety regulators, AFSA rejects and condemns US corporation Monsanto’s plan to exploit millions of Africans as unwitting human guinea pigs for their latest genetic engineering experiment. AFSA also condemns the IITA (International Institute of Tropical Agriculture) field trial application in Nigeria using this same risky technology to produce GM cassava for the agro-fuels industry.

These GM applications target staple foods of maize and cassava, eaten by many millions of Africans every day. AFSA’s open letter states, “Scientists have reported that the untested gene-silencing effect is able to cross over into mammals and humans, and affect their genetic makeup with unknown potential negative consequences, and have called for long-term animal testing and stronger regulation before this goes ahead.”

GMOs Just Got A Lot More Frightening With Approval Of New Monsanto Product

By Christina Sarich, Thanks to Natural Blaze

Forget spraying pesticides on your food, now they’ll be genetically engineered to be in your food, thanks to Monsanto’s latest quiet approval via the US Environmental Protection Agency.

The EPA just told Monsanto they could go ahead and bypass spraying our crops with carcinogenic chemicals like Round Up and just go ahead and breed them right into the crops themselves. Using a process called RNA interference, Monsanto’s RNAi plant will supposedly kill pesky rootworms when they come along to chomp on them- but what else will these genetically modified crops do to beneficial bugs, the soil, and human health? The EPA has no idea, because they haven’t done a single trial on RNAi-altered crops. Continue reading GMOs Just Got A Lot More Frightening With Approval Of New Monsanto Product

GMO Potatoes Will Hit Stores and Restaurants Soon – If They Haven’t Already

By Daisy Luther, Natural Blaze

If you prefer to avoid genetically modified foods, here’s another one to avoid. GMO potatoes will be joining  GMO apples at a store near you very soon – if they aren’t there already.

Last week, the FDA added their approval (again) to that of the EPA, giving the go-ahead for these potatoes to be planted this spring for harvest in the fall.

The rollout of the spuds has been cloaked in a fair bit of secrecy. Generally, one would expect something “new and improved” to be presented via a high-budget advertising campaign, press releases, and a giant hurrah. But, since marketers know that the public doesn’t really want anyone messing with the genetics of their favorite root vegetable, they’ve just sort of snuck them into the food supply.

GMO Apples Hit American Stores This Month: How and Why to Avoid Them

By Daisy Luther, Natural Blaze

If a food company invented a new version of a typical food and then packaged it in a box without the ingredients, etc. listed on the packaging, there would be quite the outcry.

So why is it that Okanagan Specialty Fruits is allowed to market a new variety of GMO apples without telling people the reason they’re so “special” is that they are genetically modified? Continue reading GMO Apples Hit American Stores This Month: How and Why to Avoid Them

The Top 10 Prescribed Pharmaceuticals of 2016 Are a Sign That Food is Killing Us

By Alex Pietrowski, Natural Blaze

Our food supply is being compromised and bastardized by corporations who profit handsomely by feeding the American public ever-more processed, modified, and chemical-laden foods. As if this were some kind of revolving door conspiracy, when food makes us sick, we spend more money on healthcare, and a look at the most prescribed medications of 2016 make it clear there is a direct link between poor food and poor health in America.

The 2016 list of the 50 most prescribed medications in America, as reported by Lowest Med, includes among the top ten, nine medications used to address health problems that can be primarily associated with an unhealthy diet. Continue reading The Top 10 Prescribed Pharmaceuticals of 2016 Are a Sign That Food is Killing Us

Monsanto Desperate to Hide These New Food Safety Test Results

By Anna Hunt, Waking Times

Mainstream media is completely silent on this story, so it is up to you to share the findings of this important research with everyone you know.

New testing conducted by an FDA-registered food safety lab found alarming levels of the chemical glyphosate (known as Monsanto’s Roundup weed-killer) in several very common foods. This independent research reveals that many popular foods have over 1000 times the glyphosate levels that have been established to be harmful.

Organic Rice Crop Yields Debunk Myth GMOs Are Needed to Feed the World

By Christina Sarich, Underground Reporter

Bihar, India — In India’s poorest state, farmers are setting world-breaking records growing rice and other staple foods, without the help of genetically modified organisms, and none of Monsanto’s billion-dollar herbicides.

With the biotech industry claiming that the world can only be fed with heavily-doused herbicidal crops coming from genetically modified seed, it’s astonishing to see a region responsible for providing food for so many people, churning out some of the biggest yields ever — 22.4 tonnes of rice on one hectare of land, to be exact.
