Some US farmers are considering returning to conventional seed after increased pest resistance and crop failures meant GM crops saw smaller yields globally than their non-GM counterparts. Farmers in the USA pay about an extra $100 per acre for GM seed, and many are questioning whether they will continue to see benefits from using GMs.… Read More US farmers may stop planting GMOs after poor yields
Whenever critics of genetically modified (GM) plants warn that GM crops are inserted with dangerous parts of a virus, biotech advocates rush in to correct their “misunderstanding.” We don’t have to worry, they tell us. Only a small portion of a plant virus is used in order to “turn on” the accompanying gene. Called the… Read More Breaking News: Viral Gene in Genetically Modified Foods Might Promote Diseases

According to former New York City prosecutor Tara Cook-Littman, “The constitutional argument is absurd, and everyone knows it. As long as Connecticut law makers had a legitimate state interest that was reasonably related to the labeling of products produced from the process of genetic engineering, the GMO labeling bill would be considered constitutional by any court of law.”
Tune in to this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, as host, June Stoyer is joined by special guests Analiese Paik, Tara Cook-Littman co-founders of Right To Know CT. Also joining the conversation will be renowned GMO activist, Jeffrey Smith, Executive Director of the Institute for Responsible Technology.

A Danish farming newspaper has caused quite a stir by devoting a sizeable part of its 13 April edition to the discoveries by pig farmer lb Borup Pedersen that GM soy has a damaging effect both on his animals and on his farming profitability. On the front page of the paper there was a lead story under the headline “Pig farmer reaps gains from GMO-free soy”. On a sidebar the paper referred to Mr Pedersen’s contention that DDT and Thalidomide were minor problems when set alongside GMOs and Glyphosate. In an Editorial Comment on page 2, the paper argued that it would be grossly irresponsible for the authorities to ignore or ridicule the discoveries made by the farmer in his pig farming operations, and it congratulated the authorities for commissioning a new study designed to determine whether stomach lesions and other effects might be associated with GM soy; in the study 100 animals will be fed with non-GM soy and 100 with GM soy in their diets.

April 2012: Spring is the season of renewal and resurrection that speaks
straight to the power of CHOICE. Nature’s prolific symphony of growth and
blossoms delightfully lead us to Pass Over from Slavery to Freedom.
We join the singing birds and we dance to an ancient rhythm; we boldly chart
a new course. Choice expresses everything noble in life itself.,
Choice is inseparable from life itself: without Choice there IS no life.
Only Choice cascades benefits. Choice is a Universal Constant and its power
to bring renewal is a Universal Law. When choices abound, health and
happiness are not far behind; neither is love, and money.
Self-determination, the First Principal of the American Republic, is Choice.
Choice, at the root, flowers as the inalienable rights expressed in the
Declaration of Independence. Every person, family, tribe, faction, of
movement – every nation, every brave voyage across the vast seas of history
completely agrees: Freedom of Choice is KEY. The only disagreement EVER is
about the nature or control of: Choice.… Read More Food Integrity: Welcome to A Better World by Frederick Ravid
