How Healthy Is Genetically Modified Soybean Oil?

revealed-why-gm-food-is-so-hard-to-sell-to-a-wary-public-1024w

Soybean oil accounts for more than 90 percent of all the seed oil production in the United States. Genetically modified (GM) soybean oil, made from seeds of GM soybean plants, was recently introduced into the food supply on the premise that it is healthier than conventional soybean oil. But is that premise true? Just barely, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Court Rejects USDA Motion to Dismiss Lawsuit on Organic Change Rule

On Thursday September 10, a federal judge in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, in a bench ruling, rejected the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) motion to dismiss a federal lawsuit (Case3:15-cv-01690) that challenges the National Organic Program’s (NOP) failure to follow proper legal procedures in making a substantial rule change to the […]

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 […]

GMO Soy Accumulates Formaldehyde & Disrupts Plant Metabolism, Suggests Peer-Reviewed Study

gmo-soy-accumulates-formaldehyde-disrupts-plant-metabolism-suggests-peer-reviewed-study1024w

A new study published today in the peer-reviewed journal AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES reveals genetic engineering of soy disrupts the plant’s natural ability to control stress, and invalidates the FDA’s current regulatory framework of “substantial equivalence” used for approval of genetically engineered food (GMOs). The study, led by Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, Ph.D., an MIT-trained systems biologist, […]
