Séralini Study On Toxic Effects Of GMOs And Glyphosate Republished

[NOTE: When the French scientist Gilles-Éric Séralini first published disturbing findings of cancer in rats fed GMO corn (in the peer-reviewed Food and Chemical Toxicology journal), the blowback from the biotechnology industry, and related scientists, was so intense that the journal, in a virtually unprecedented step, withdrew the article.

Label GMOs? Or Ban Them?

The introduction in the mid-nineties of genetically engineered crops into the U.S. food supply—with no independent safety-testing or labeling required—sparked a debate over how to drive these unhealthy and environmentally destructive “Frankenfoods” off the market. Some campaigners have called for an outright ban of GE crops. Others argue that strict mandatory labeling laws, similar to

GMOs Are Killing Bees, Birds, Butterflies, etc…

“It is ironic to think that man might determine his own future by something so seemingly trivial as the choice of an insect spray.” – Rachel Carson, Silent Spring When the honeybees, our most important food pollinators, started dropping like proverbial flies, scientists scrambled to identify their killer (or killers). Attention eventually turned to the

Tell The FDA: GMOs Aren’t ‘Natural’!

In its latest underhanded (desperate?) move to thwart the anti-GMO movement, Big Food’s lobbying arm has petitioned the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to rule that food companies can officially label their GMO-contaminated products as “natural” or even “all natural.” To be clear, food companies are already doing this. Even though the FDA says

All

What is the best way to change public perceptions on any topic? Through entertainment. The battle to control us through changing (or creating) our opinions is as old as history. Carefully disseminated disinformation was first documented in ancient Greece, when playwrights and poets created dramas for the sole purpose of indoctrinating their audience to a
