Protein Found That Initiates DNA Repair

protein-found-that-initiates-dna-repair-1024w

A research team has discovered a protein that may serve as a first responder that sets in motion a cascade of molecular activity to repair damaged DNA. The research team was led by Vera Gorbunova and Andrei Seluanov, professors of biology at the University of Rochester. Biologists, geneticists, and other scientists who study the cellular […]

DNA Sequences In GMOs: Largest Database Now Publicly Available

dna-sequences-in-gmos-largest-database-now-publicly-available-1024w

The JRC has published a new database, JRC GMO-Amplicons, which contains more than 240 000 DNA sequences appearing in genetically modified organisms (GMOs). It will help to verify the presence of GMOs in food, feed and environment. To date, this new database is the largest and most comprehensive in this area and could be key to developing […]

Genetically Engineered Soybeans Given To Goats Altered Milk and Stunted Offspring

Pregnant goats fed with genetically engineered (GE) soybeans have offspring who grow more slowly and are shorter, according to a new Italian study. Publishing in the journal of Small Ruminant Research, the researchers were testing the results of supplementing the feed of female goats with Roundup Ready GE soybeans. Roundup Ready soybeans are engineered to […]

Researchers Create A Purple Genetically Engineered Lime

Scientists are developing genetically engineered limes containing anthocyanin, which are beneficial bioflavonoids that have numerous roles in human well-being, including treating obesity and diabetes. University of Florida horticulture scientist Manjul Dutt is hoping to turn your next margarita on its head by making it a lovely lavender instead of passé pale green. Dutt and Jude […]

Roundup Is Toxic To The Heart

roundup-is-toxic-to-the-heart

Roundup had toxic effects on the hearts of rabbits and rats in a new study led by Steeve Gress and conducted in the lab of Prof Gilles-Eric Seralini. Doses were equivalent to those that would be expected in acute poisoning incidents. The hearts were tested “ex vivo” – removed from the animals at the time […]

Is Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Plant Causing Cancer In Toledo?

Could a Davis-Besse nuclear power plant that has been shut down before for non-radioactive leaks be the cause of cancer in portions of the northwest Ohio, including Toledo. Davis-Besse nuclear reactor (power plant) is located on Lake Erie in Oak Harbor, Ohio, 20 miles east of Toledo. The reactor has been plagued with accidents and violations, […]

Subtle Mutations | Fukushima

subtle-mutations-fukushima

Subtle changes are happening to our genome with increasing genetic mutations, and the danger from Fukuhima to Japan and the world has not passed, it has just begun. For millennials, life on earth has been evolving through natural forces. It’s not that Fukushima has started this change, it’s just the contamination has pushed our DNA […]

FDA Has Determined That Genetically Engineered Salmon Is Safe To Eat And Doesn’t Need Labeling

fda-has-determined-that-geneticallt-engineered-salmon-is-safe-to-eat-and-doesnt-need-labeling

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the first genetically engineered (GE) animal intended for food, the AquAdvantage Salmon. The GE Atlantic salmon under consideration was engineered with growth hormone genes from an unrelated Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) and DNA from the anti-freeze genes of an eelpout (Zoarces americanus). The FDA has arrived at […]

Genetically engineered crops, glyphosate and the deterioration of health in the United States of America

ge-crops-health-deterioration

Is rising glyphosate use responsible for increases in modern diseases? Claire Robinson looks at the latest study to raise the question Is the rise in glyphosate use since the advent of GM crops responsible for the rapid deterioration of health in the US in the last 20 years? A new study by former US Navy […]

Documented effects of glyphosate and its pathways to modern diseases

documented-effects-of-glyphosate-and-its-pathways-to-modern-diseases

Documented effects of glyphosate and its ability to induce disease, show that glyphosate is the “textbook example” of exogenous semiotic entropy: the disruption of homeostasis by environmental toxins. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup®, is the most popular herbicide used worldwide. The industry asserts it is minimally toxic to humans, but here we argue otherwise. […]
