Preemption: The Legal Principle Used By Big Biotech To Get GMO Labeling Banned

Preemption is the legal principle being trotted out in the last couple of years by politicians and judges ruling on biotechnology and GMO cases.

Anti-GMO But Pro-Vaccine?

The truth is that the GMO and vaccine agendas are the same; only, activists appear to think there is a difference. Few things are as disturbing to me as the divide that exists between the GMO and vaccine awareness movements. If you look closely you’ll see the exact same concerns: the violation of informed consent, the neglect of the


Formaldehyde In GMO Soy?

When the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) wrongfully declared GMOs “substantially equivalent” to non-GMO foods, the agency set the table for decades of corruption. Corruption of our food supply.

Lying Through Their Teeth!

DARK Days Ahead?

Today, at 10 a.m., Reps. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) and their band of pro-GMO, anti-consumer, stomp-all-over-states’-rights outlaws will stand before the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health and ask the Committee to support H.R. 1599. We’ve been calling H.R. 1599 the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act, because that’s


Truvia’s Sweet Scam: Highly Processed, GMO, And Contains Hardly Any Stevia (VIDEO)

If you’re one of the people who was excited when the “natural” sweetener that was allegedly made from the stevia plant became more commonly available, I’m afraid I have some bad news for you.

Take That, Monsanto!

Monsanto may be able to buy our politicians, but we still have some ethical judges on our side.

The ruling followed another anti-Monsanto decision in Vermont. On April
