There is a war raging against your right to know what you and your children are eating, how it was altered genetically, and how to avoid it.

The federal government is attempting to stop states and localities from regulating these experimental foods, which are released to the public without any long term or independent testing at all. They are tested by the corporations and voluntarily reported to the government under the fraudulent assumption that they are safe, because it’s up to the rest of us to prove their science experiments are unsafe. This Alice in Wonderland system of high risk corporate coddling is protected by the corrupt congress, which has gone out of its way to bring us toward a state of fascism, on this and on other crucial issues (such as the surveillance state).

GMO Labeling Laws Ditched: The Passage of the DARK Act Shows the Arrogance of US Politicians

In particular, the DARK Act – if passed by the Senate and signed into law by Obama – will:

  • Preempt State and local laws regarding the production and sale of GMO crops, not just the labeling of GMO foods;

  • Eliminate “GMO-Free” zones;

  • Unfairly burden traditional farmers and food producers to label their food as “GMO-free,” requiring certification from the pro-GMO USDA;

  • Further muddy the food definition of “Natural,” allowing companies to make “natural” claims on packaging even if the food contains GMOs; and

  • Allow dairy products from animals fed bioengineered foods and foods developed using bioengineered processing aids or enzymes to still be labeled as non-bioengineered.

Buy Organic… while you still can.

In one of the greatest betrayals of public health in the country’s history, the EPA has stalled for years to study the effects of the herbicide. Roundup is in wide use and polluting the environment and its inhabitants across the country, with next to zero oversight.  It’s the corruption, stupid.

After 8 Years of Delay, EPA Finally Agrees to Test Dangers of Monsanto’s Favorite Pesticide

“With more than 300 million pounds of this stuff being dumped on our landscape each year, it’s hard to even fathom the damage it’s doing.”

Bad Day for Monsanto

German states call for ban on household pesticide (Glyphosate)

After reevaluating the most widely used pesticide in Germany and worldwide, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) cancer researchers have categorised Glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans”.

In a resolution on Friday (8 May), Germany’s state ministers called for “the supply to and use by private persons to be banned for precautionary reasons”. In addition, the politicians argue that Glyphosate should be prohibited for uses close to consumers.

Fears over Roundup herbicide residues prompt private testing

Tests by Abraxis found glyphosate residues in 41 of 69 honey samples and in 10 of 28 soy sauces; Microbe tests detected glyphosate in three of 18 breast milk samples and in six of 40 infant formula samples.

Monsanto’s “Discredit Bureau” Really Does Exist

Dr. Moar, perhaps forgetting that this was a public event, then revealed that Monsanto indeed had “an entire department” (waving his arm for emphasis) dedicated to “debunking” science which disagreed with theirs.

The satanic corporation has an entire division dedicated to attacking scientists who disagree with them.  I believe they employ a troll army too, as they seem to show up immediately whenever a GMO article is published at a busy site with a comments section.

Glyphosate has been detected in the blood and urine of agricultural workers, indicating absorption. Soil microbes degrade glyphosate to aminomethylphosphoric acid (AMPA). Blood AMPA detection after poisonings suggests intestinal microbial metabolism in humans. Glyphosate and glyphosate formulations induced DNA and chromosomal damage in mammals, and in human and animal cells in vitro. One study reported increases in blood markers of chromosomal damage (micronuclei) in residents of several communities after spraying of glyphosate formulations.
