An Inconvenient Question

On February 27, First Lady Michelle Obama went to bat for the FDA’s proposed new-and-improved rules for labels on food. Conspicuously absent from all the media buzz was any mention of the number one food policy issue in this country right now—GMO labeling. How could Mrs. Obama talk about food labeling laws and not even mention GMO ...

GMO Labeling Victory In Vermont!

  Vermont passed H.112, this country’s first no-strings-attached law requiring the mandatory labeling of GMOs (genetically modified organisms), and outlawing the practice of labeling GMO-contaminated foods as “natural” or “all-natural.” With the passage of the Vermont GMO labeling law, after 20 years of struggle, it’s time to celebrate our common victory. But as we all know, the ...

Vermont Senate Votes 26-2 For GMO Labeling

Vermont one step closer to becoming first state to enact such a law The Senate gave a decisive 26-2 vote Tuesday for a bill that would require labeling of foods that contain genetically modified ingredients, a strong indication that Vermont could become the first state in the nation to enact such a law. “We are saying people ...

A Sour Deception: Citric Acid Comes From GMO Black Mold, Not Fruit

Just what is your food made of, anyway? Try industrial synthesis, genetically modified mold secretions, hydrochloric acid, mercury-contaminated caustic soda, ferrocyanide… and, of course, lots of GMO corn. If common ingredients like “citric acid” and “ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)” sound normal and familiar enough that you practically conjure up an image of the flourishing orchard they ...

Send In The (Pro-GMO) Clowns

Oops. Don’t bother. They’re here. As promised, Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), the Congressman from Koch Industries, has introduced a federal bill to keep labels off GMO-contaminated foods. And he’s recruited a few fellow clowns, um, colleagues to stick out their necks along with him. They’re calling it the “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2014." Of ...

URGENT: New Bill Tries To Deny YOUR Right-To-Know

Representative Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) wants to deny your right to know!

Voracious Worm Evolves To Eat Biotech Corn Engineered To Kill It

One of agricultural biotechnology’s great success stories may become a cautionary tale of how short-sighted mismanagement can squander the benefits of genetic modification. After years of predicting it would happen — and after years of having their suggestions largely ignored by companies, farmers and regulators — scientists have documented the rapid evolution of corn rootworms that ...

Sorry, Monsanto. No GMO Corn South Of The Border

Monsanto will have to wait awhile longer before it can contaminate Mexico’s countryside with its GMO corn. And thanks in part to the work being done by OCA’s Mexico-based sister network, Vía Orgánica, the Biotech Bully may never get the chance to destroy what has traditionally been a global haven for food crop biodiversity. This year ...

What, No GMO Labels?

When Michelle Obama speaks, the media listens. And listen they did on February 27, when Mrs. Obama went to bat for the FDA’s proposed new-and-improved rules for labels on food. What should consumers expect? More realistic (as in larger) serving sizes. Calorie counts in bigger and bolder type. Out with Vitamin A and in with Vitamin ...

The GMO Elephant In The Room

When’s the last time you signed a petition or wrote a letter urging the FDA or Congress or your state legislator to add Vitamin A or potassium to the nutrition label on packaged foods? Do you recall ever petitioning anyone to change the serving sizes listed on food labels? Or to increase the font size used ...

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 those ...

Why Is There GMO Sugar In Salt??

Great April Fools' Day prank idea: Switch up your loved ones' sugar with salt. When they spit out their coffee and comment on the saltiness you can insist that it's really sugar and that there's nothing wrong, giving the prank a twisted flair. But you'd be right - because there's friggin' GMO sugar in salt! This applies ...

‘World’s First’ Farmer Trial Over GM Crop Contamination Begins In Australia

A landmark legal battle between two farmers over alleged GM contamination has started in the Western Australian Supreme Court. The case is expected to determine GM farmers’ liability if their crops affect neighboring territories.

GMO Labeling Hot Potato?

The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and its band of profiteers (28 industry groups masquerading as the Coalition for Affordable Safe Food), have drafted their Bill to Kill GMO Labeling Laws. But the bill won’t get off the ground unless the GMA can convince a couple of Congress members to sponsor it. It’s time to let every ...

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 increased ...

The Bilderberg Plan To Obliterate Humanity

I recently interviewed Daniel Estulin, the author of what will be the newest best seller, TransEvolution: The Coming Age of Human Deconstruction. Estulin wrote the book based largely on a Bilderberg white paper which was smuggled to him by a Bilderberg insider. The document was filled with information which spelled the end of the human race ...
