GMOs and Cancer

How are GMOs and Roundup linked to cancer? That was the subject of my talk in Orlando at the exciting The Truth About Cancer conference (Oct 6).  The conference will be rebroadcast Oct 13-15.  Watch me at 4:45 pm Eastern on Friday, October 13th. Here are 10 main points from my presentation: The very process… Read More GMOs and Cancer

Tell Canadians: Don’t Eat Farm-Raised Salmon—It Might be Genetically Engineered

Aug 04, 2017, AquaBounty announced the sale of 5 tons of genetically engineered AquaAdvantage Salmon to commercial buyers in Canada.  Eating this salmon might lead to serious health issues (see below). Because it’s unlabeled, the only way to avoid it is to 1) stop eating salmon, 2) only buy wild caught, or 3) know the… Read More Tell Canadians: Don’t Eat Farm-Raised Salmon—It Might be Genetically Engineered

Research Exposes New Health Risks of Genetically Modified Mosquitoes and Salmon

By Jeffrey Smith Just when genetically modified (GM) mosquitoes got their approval by the Cayman Islands and the government of Canada’s Prince Edward Island is trying to approve GM salmon, new research reveals unexpected and potentially dangerous effects of genetic engineering. Unfortunately, neither the makers of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) nor their regulators conduct the… Read More Research Exposes New Health Risks of Genetically Modified Mosquitoes and Salmon

Corn, Corn, Everywhere Corn

Download this list of common corn-based ingredients and products:  Corn Products & Derivatives. More than 50 percent of the typical American diet is derived from corn.  That is what college grads, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, learned when they visited the University of Virginia (UVA) to get a hair sample analysis done by UVA professor of… Read More Corn, Corn, Everywhere Corn

GM Mustard Threatens India

Rigged research and corrupt science now threaten the Indian population and ecosystem with a potentially dangerous genetically modified crop used in food, oil, medicine, and spice. For most Americans, mustard is either a spicy powder or condiment for hotdogs.  They are unaware of its long history dating back to prehistoric times, or the extensive use… Read More GM Mustard Threatens India

Rogue GM Petunias Enter U.S.

What is wrong with this picture?  Petunias are not naturally orange.  The African Sunset petunia sold by Sears and other retailers in the U.S.,  is genetically modified.  News of the illegal entry and subsequent U.S. investigation was released on May 14 by Greenhouse Management News. USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is now… Read More Rogue GM Petunias Enter U.S.

Over half of the European Union’s 28 countries, representing two thirds of the population, want nothing to do with GMOs

Industry reps cry that Europe could soon become a “graveyard” for biotech products; environmentalists rejoice.  The mass rejection of the GM technology means that approximately two-thirds of Europe’s arable land will remain GMO free. Legislation to allow EU member states to restrict or ban the cultivation of crops containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) on their… Read More Over half of the European Union’s 28 countries, representing two thirds of the population, want nothing to do with GMOs

Consumer Safety Laws Going Down Because of Trade Deals

The obvious concern is that any consumer safety labeling law—perhaps especially, labeling of GMOs—could be targeted and overturned on the basis that it caused a barrier to trade. Associated Press reports that the U.S. House Agriculture Committee has voted 38-6 to repeal a “country-of-origin” (COOL) labeling law for beef, pork and chicken— just two days… Read More Consumer Safety Laws Going Down Because of Trade Deals

Glyphosate contamination of food and water: should we be concerned?

On March 20th, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a unit of the World Health Organization, released their report that classified glyphosate as a 2A carcinogen — probably carcinogenic to humans. In particular, the IARC reviewers cited studies from the U.S., Canada and Sweden suggesting that people exposed to glyphosate had a higher… Read More Glyphosate contamination of food and water: should we be concerned?

China Positioned to Decide if 2-4-D Resistant GMOs Will Be Adopted by U.S. Farmers

Could China stop the new 2,4-D resistant GMO crops from spreading across U.S. farmlands? If China refuses to grant import approval, then the answer could be YES.  While non-GMO advocates and environmentalists work feverishly through the U.S. court system to prohibit Dow Agrosciences from unleashing the so-called Agent Orange GMO seeds, Dow has voluntarily restricted… Read More China Positioned to Decide if 2-4-D Resistant GMOs Will Be Adopted by U.S. Farmers
