Yahoo’s Ebola Tweet Is A Lie Designed To Promote Fear-Based Acceptance Of The Ebola Vaccine

A Yahoo News last Sunday and it stated that 145 people in the Atlanta area have contracted Ebola.

Wanted: Celebrity Chef To Promote Monsanto

In its latest ploy to brainwash consumers, Monsanto is teaming up with a major media conglomerate to bribe nonprofits with money in exchange for promoting GMO foods on TV.

Why Monsanto’s ‘Cure’ For World Hunger Is Cursing The Global Food Supply

What if the very GM agricultural system that Monsanto claims will help to solve the problem of world hunger depends on a chemical that kills the very pollinator upon which approximately 70% of world's food supply now depends? A new study published in the Journal of Experimental Biology titled, "Effects of field-realistic doses of glyphosate on ...

Another Pro-GMO President?

Hillary Clinton. Former senator and secretary of state. Mother. Grandmother-to-be. Potential frontrunner for the Democratic nominee for U.S. president in 2016. And Monsanto cheerleader. From back in the days when she worked for the Rose Law Firm, which represented Monsanto, to her ongoing cozy relationships with pro-GMO appointees Michael Taylor (Deputy Commissioner for Foods) and Tom Vilsack ...

Self-Proclaimed Monsanto Employee Trolling Anti-GMO Articles, Claiming Organic Food ‘Kills People’

So I was reading Heather Callaghan’s article, “Monsanto Teaching a Health Class In a School Near You?” published earlier today at Activist Post, which begins, “I’m retelling this story not to cause sheer outrage or bring down shame and fire on one school in one instance, but to let you know definitively that Monsanto representatives ...

No. More. Roundup.

A 2009 study found that Americans annually dump about 100 million pounds of glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, on their lawns and gardens.

Let’s Kick Some Grass!

As if the world’s most widely used poison, Monsanto’s Roundup, didn’t already pose a huge public health threat.

City Passes Ordinance To Protect Monsanto World Headquarters From Protesters

As the fight against genetically modified foods continues to intensify across the country, protesters like those involved in March Against Monsanto continue to march on.

Apparently Monsanto protesters ...

You would think what with Monsanto’s Honeybee Advisory Council, and Bayer’s Bee Care Centers, the world’s largest pesticide-makers would be too busy caring about bees to manufacture or use the pesticides that kill them. Not true, of course. Here’s what is true. Bayer, Syngenta and Monsanto have launched a massive public relations campaign to convince consumers ...
