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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

New Study: Consumers Don’t View GMO Labels as Negative ‘Warnings’

A new study released just days after the U.S. House passed a bill that would prevent states from requiring labels on genetically modified foods reveals that GMO labeling would not act as warning labels and scare consumers away from buying products with GMO ingredients. The study, presented at the annual conference of the Agricultural and […]

Synthetic Vegan Cheese from Human DNA Strands Coming Soon?

synthetic-vegan-cheese-from-human-dna-strands-coming-soon-400w

A San Francisco based, synthetic biohacker group has made hundreds of headlines for creating cheese without the use of cows. Young biohackerspace people from BioCurious and CounterCultureLabs make up the group. They beat out 243 other groups to take first place at this year’s iGEM “jamboree” competition. iGEM stands for international genetically engineered machine. The winner’s […]

Discovery of Bt insecticide in human blood proves GMO toxin a threat to human health study finds

reasons-to-avoid-genetically-modified-foods-1024w

A new study out of the University of Sherbrooke, Canada, recently found Bt toxin, a component of certain genetically-modified (GM) crops, in human blood samples for the first time. Set to be published in the peer-reviewed journal Reproductive Toxicology the new study shreds the false notion that Bt is broken down by the digestive system, […]

Genetic engineering (GMOs) is genetic blasphemy

genetic-engineering-is-genetic-blasphemy-1024w

A genetically modified organism (GMO) or genetically engineered organism (GEO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. These techniques, generally known as recombinant DNA technology, use DNA molecules from different sources, which are combined into one molecule to create a new set of genes. This DNA is then transferred […]
