World’s First GM Fish Factory Could Be Built in Canada, Producing 250 Metric Tons Per Year

Have you ever seen the movie ‘GMO OMG?’ In the film, which documents the growing ubiquitous nature of GMOs in the United States, a father goes to great lengths in order to ensure a natural, GMO-free diet for his kids, as is the norm in dozens and dozens of countries around the world. His travels lead him to a remote park where he examines the state of wild caught fish, and thinking that the fish is GMO free, decides that it might be a good source of food for his kids. Unfortunately, his research leads him to a shocking conclusion: even the wild caught fish may very well have been fed GMOs, from food pellets comprised of GMO corn and [...]

BREAKING NEWS: President Trump Pushes GMOs in New Executive Order

  The Barack Obama presidency was disappointing to proponents of organic, natural and non-GMO foods for many reasons, starting with his stated goal of labeling GMOs that ended with heartbreak: the drafting of a new law that undercut Vermont’s democratically passed labeling law and made voluntary labeling the standard. Now, the Donald Trump era is off to an equally frustrating start, and this time the president is wasting little time in letting the country know where he stands. Report: Trump Signs Executive Order to Push GMOs According to a new report from the Center for Food Safety organizaton (which just launched this petition), the Donald Trump administration has just signed a new executive order, specifically [...]

“Monsanto’s Secret Superfund Site:” FOIA Documents Reveal the True, Toxic Source of Roundup

The Monsanto Company is well known as the creator of Roundup, genetically engineered food, and other “technologies” in the agricultural industry. But what most people don’t realize about the company is that it has a long history as a major polluter in many other areas, ranging from its production of Agent Orange in the Vietnam War to its role in the creation of several “superfund” sites: parts of the country that have been horrifically cotnaminated by chemicals such as PCBs and many others. The town of Soda Springs, Idaho is one such example, having been named a superfund site more than two decades ago because of the extreme pollution it suffered at the hands of Monsanto. Most people have never [...]

Main Ingredient in Monsanto’s Best Selling Product To Be Added to List of Cancer-Causing Chemicals in California

The Monsanto Company has long defended its controversial herbicide Roundup, its flagship product, but public opinion has been swayed heavily against it in the recent months for various reasons. Beginning in 2015 when the World Health Organization declared glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, to be a “probable human carcinogen,” the company’s dealings have been under the microscope. That led to the uncovering of a scandal involving a former high-ranking EPA employee Jess Rowland, who reportedly boasted “if I can kill this, I should get a medal” to Monsanto Executive Dan Jenkins over his role in squashing a new study aimed at testing the potentially harmful effects of the chemical. With so much [...]

Bill Gates Meets With Donald Trump, Attempts to Sell President on Safety of Vaccines

  While critics say vaccines are given a free pass in terms of their safety by the U.S. government thanks to a 1986 act that made it illegal to sue drug companies over health damages, new president Donald Trump has already shared his concerns with the world.  Trump has personally said he vaccinated his son Baron but spaced the shots out in order to give his immune system and body more time to recover from any potential side effects, the “old-fashioned way.” He also has previously spoken with attorney and advocate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. about a possible vaccine safety commission that would look into the potential harm being caused by vaccines ($3.6 billion has been paid out through a [...]

The Most Controversial DNA Test You’ve Never Heard Of

Think twice, or three times, before you PAY to send your DNA off to any one of the numerous companies, like Ancestry.com, claiming they will tell your ethnicity.  ~ Truth Teller By: Josie Wales via TheAntiMedia.org A vote on whether to approve a proposal that would allow familial DNA searching in certain criminal cases has been delayed by New York state’s Forensic Science Committee. The controversial proposal has been sent back to a special subcommittee to “tighten up the language.” If approved, the new policy would allow police to investigate family members of New Yorkers whose DNA closely matches DNA found at crime scenes. Because familial searching has gotten little to no coverage in mainstream media, [...]

Restaurant Owner Installs Fridge Outside to Feed The Homeless

Minu Pauline, a restaurant owner from Kochi, in southern India, recently made news headlines, not for her culinary expertise, but her awe-inspiring generosity. She maintains a fully stocked, unlocked refrigerator outside her restaurant, filled with free fresh meals for the homeless. Minu, whose popular food joint Pappadavada has been operating since 2013, was struck by the sight of homeless people digging for food from the garbage bins behind her kitchen. “I have often seen the homeless and the hungry, especially the aged, rummage through garbage scouring for food,” she told The Hindu. “They are looking for some leftovers or stale food to quell their hunger, and it disturbs me.” So, when she opened a second [...]

Monsanto Tribunal Renders Verdict: Company Could Possibly Be Held Accountable for Crime of “Ecocide”

The world-famous site in the Netherlands known as The Hague was the site of the Monsanto Tribunal, which began in October 2016, a landmark event seeking to establish a legal framework for holding companies like Monsanto accountable. The Tribunal released its official legal opinion today on the highly controversial U.S. agrochemical and GM seeds company. The opinion was released by a panel of five international judges and included several key conclusions as to how the world should treat corporations such as Monsanto that damage human health and the environment. While the opinion is not an official legal result, it may be used as a framework for future lawsuits against the company. As you might have expected, the [...]

New Type of GMO Process Opens Door for Seedless Fruits With No Need for Bees

The plight of the honeybees has become a worldwide phenomenon, with Europe stepping up to the plate and widely banning GMOs as well as neonicotinoids, poison-treated seeds that have been linked to colony collapse disorder and wide-scale bee deaths. But here in the United States, a different landscape has taken shape: one that continues to place chemial-intensive agriculture and gene modification techniques (including genetic engineering and now “gene editing,” both have been dubbed as GMOs) above long-term focused sustainable farming practices. While the downsides of genetic engineering have become more known in recent years, gene editing is the newest “modifcation” to this risky and unnatural paradigm (learn [...]
