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 ...

Deadly Duo

What’s more poisonous than Dow’s 2,4-D “Agent Orange” herbicide or Monsanto’s Roundup? Enlist Duo, an herbicide made of both 2,4-D and Roundup. The OCA has submitted more than 19,000 signatures to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) asking regulators to reject Dow’s request for approval of 2,4-D for use on the company’s new Enlist brand corn and ...

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. A lot has happened since 2009, so that number is probably much higher -- and about to get even higher yet, if Scott’s goes through with its plan to sell ...

Bee Killers Sponsor National Pollinator Week

Concerned about the bees and the butterflies? Interested in celebrating National Pollinator Week? It’s happening this week, June 16-22, 2014.

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. Now, Monsanto and Scotts have teamed up to market Roundup Ready Kentucky Bluegrass, genetically engineered to withstand massive doses of Roundup. You probably won’t buy it. But what’s to stop commercial landscapers from using it just about anywhere? Nothing. ...

Monsanto Supersizes Farmers’ Weed Problem—But Science Can Solve It (VIDEO)

The Union Of Concerned Scientists has concerns about Monsanto’s Roundup Ready system.

The hazard to Monsanto’s Roundup system isn’t just the devastating health effects that could come along with their ...

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. Unfortunately, in a staunchly pro-Monsanto state like Missouri — home to Monsanto’s global headquarters — those protests just became a little more difficult to hold at the site itself. Apparently Monsanto protesters ...

Food Fight Is About To Get Uglier

As if it hasn’t been an uphill battle so far, trying to defeat Big Food and the Gene Giants in order to pass GMO labeling laws. It’s about to get worse. Defying repeated threats of a lawsuit from Monsanto and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), on May 8, Peter Shumlin, Governor of Vermont, signed a historic bill ...

March Against Monsanto. May 24. Everywhere.

It was fun last year. It’s going to be even more fun this year. On Saturday, May 24, millions of people around the world will March against Monsanto. And this year, we’ll have plenty to celebrate. The GMO labeling law in Vermont. The Monsanto Protection Act victory. But we’ve still got a long way to go before ...

Follow The Honey

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 ...

How Monsanto Annihilated A Paradise And Turned It Into An Island Of Illness

A beautiful island in Hawaii called Molokai has been subject to biotech giant Monsanto for some time now and the results of Monsanto’s actions on the island is beginning to show very dark conclusions. The residents of the island of Molokai seem to be getting sicker and sicker as Monsanto continually carries out their actions ...

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 ...

Whole Foods And Monsanto Top Shareholders Are Identical

Is there a Whole Foods-Monsanto connection? The answer is yes. But the important question is: what does this connection mean? What does it imply? Is it significant? If you consult open listings (for example, investors.morningstar.com), you can look at the major shareholders of these two publicly traded companies, Monsanto and Whole Foods. If you read the top 10 shareholders for each ...

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 ...
