Glyphosate Weedkiller Found in All 5 Popular Orange Juice Brands

Mission Viejo, CA- Today Moms Across America released glyphosate test results revealing that all of the five popular orange juice brands tested positive for glyphosate weed killer. Moms Across America founder Zen Honeycutt stated, “The discovery of glyphosate residue in orange juice is unacceptable, especially since a branch of the World Health Organization designated glyphosate a probable carcinogen, two years ago,  back in the spring of 2015. The EPA has had ample time to revoke the license of this chemical and restrict its use in our food and beverage crops. As confirmed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, our children, who frequently drink orange juice for breakfast, are especially vulnerable to [...]

Roundup Weed Killer Ingredient Going on California Cancer List

FRESNO, CA (AP) – Regulators in California took a pivotal step on Monday toward becoming the first state to require the popular weed killer Roundup to come with a label warning that it’s known to cause cancer. Officials announced that starting July 7 the weed killer’s main ingredient, glyphosate, will appear on a list California keeps of potentially cancerous chemicals. A year later, the listing could come with warning labels on the product, officials said. However, it’s not certain whether Roundup will ultimately get a warning label. Monsanto, the chemical’s maker, has filed an appeal after losing in court to block the labeling, arguing that Roundup doesn’t cause cancer and that the labels will harm [...]

Taiwan Becomes First Asian Country to Ban Eating Dog and Cat Meat

In a great victory for animals, Taiwan has become the first Asian country to ban eating dog and cat meat and establishes jail time for individuals who torture and kill animals. Where previously the Animal Protection Act, Taiwan’s animal rights legislation, only covered the slaughter and sale of dog and cat meat, this amendment specifically prohibits the consumption of dog and cat meat as well. Now individuals who eat or trade dog or cat meat can now be fined between $1,640 to $8,200. Not only that, but the amendment to the Animal Protection Act also bans “walking” an animal on a leash pulled by a car or motorcycle and raises the penalty for cruelty to animals. The maximum prison term for [...]

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.

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.

Trump’s EPA Gives Big Gift to Dow Chemical While Putting Children at Risk

Trump’s EPA is allowing a toxic pesticide onto our food, our water, our schools, our yards, and our bodies. Now, Earth Justice is taking them to court. In a move that will put almost anyone who comes into contact with many common foods at risk, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has refused to ban the toxic pesticide chlorpyrifos. For the Trump administration, children of farm workers don’t rank as high as Dow Chemical, the main manufacturer and defender of the toxic pesticide chlorpyrifos. Perhaps the Senate, in its hearing on Scott Pruitt’s nomination to head the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), should have questioned Pruitt as the chief pediatrician for [...]
