(CollectiveEvo) - A new kind of antibiotic has been developed by researchers at Oregon State University. The new antibiotics are called PPMOs, which stand for peptide-conjugated phosphorodiamidate morpholino oligomers. They are “a synthetic analog of DNA or RNA that has the ability to silence the expression of specific genes.” (1) The way that PPMO antibiotics will work is to, “specifically target the underlying genes of a bacterium.” In plain English, PPMOs will genetically modify bacteria.

(CommonDreams) – It hasn’t been a good week for Monsanto and the rest of the biotech industry.
Photo: Rainforest Action Network/cc/flickrJust three days ago, Mexico banned genetically engineered corn. Citing the risk of imminent harm to the environment, a Mexican judge ruled that, effective immediately, no genetically engineered corn can be planted in the country. This means that companies like Monsanto will no longer be allowed to plant or sell their corn within the country’s borders. Read the rest of this entry »

(NaturalNews) – How much of what you eat has been heated to over 118 degrees? Exactly which ingredients in your favorite foods are synthetic and made in a laboratory to preserve or “spice up” your dishes? Did you know most “added” and “fortified” vitamins and minerals are useless, and the body is simply unable to assimilate, use or even identify “dead” food? The worst part about dead food is that much of it is actually toxic and carcinogenic, slowing down normal digestive processes and draining REAL nutrients, thus catering to lethargy, weakened immunity and many common ailments.

(NaturalSociety) – Are you aware of nanotechnology and nanoparticles? Nanoparticles are tiny—like really tiny. A piece of your hair is about 100,000 nanometers wide; it’s the unit of measurement that your fingernails grow in a single second, but their size isn’t the only problem. Nanoparticles are potentially toxic, according to the Alliance for Natural Health (ANH), and they are found in everything from certified organic foods to clothing.

(WakingTimes) – Will Colombia’s farmers defeat the economic hitmen of the agricultural industry?
Early in September, 2013, the Colombian government was forced to partially concede to the demands of a nationwide general strike instigated by farmers of the largely agrarian nation. The three-week-long protests and blockades that shut down much of the nation were supported by thousands of miners, truckers, students, bus drivers, and Colombian citizens, blocking roads and clashing with police.

(NaturalBlaze) – Why avoid genetically modified foods? There are plenty of reasons; namely, your health. But you might hear people regurgitate the same old biotech slogans, when really it’s about feeding a bottomless bottom line and propelling an even bigger agenda. Read the rest of this entry »
(NaturalNews) – Everywhere you turn in the media, GMO propagandists are invoking so-called “Golden rice” as part of a false narrative that claims GMOs will save the world. Golden rice will save a million lives, blared the cover of TIME Magazine. Golden rice will give poor people critical nutrition and end suffering, we’re told. In fact, Golden rice will even make all the poor children eating it no longer care that they have no clean water, no sustainable agriculture and no economic future, it seems.

(NaturalNews) – Golden rice is being touted by GMO advocates as a miracle cure for blindness and death. It is claimed that golden rice is genetically engineered to produce higher levels of beta carotene which the body converts to vitamin A, preventing blindness and death. These claims, however, have no basis in fact and are utterly unsupported by any scientific evidence whatsoever. In fact, those pushing golden rice are doing so as a matter of intense faith rather than science. This is especially noteworthy because those pushing it are staunch enemies of “faith” and claim to be operating solely based on science. Read the rest of this entry »

Like so many of these stories that come out quietly every day in this country, another farmer’s crops have been tainted with genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

(NaturalNews) – A new video from the group calling itself “Organic Spies” is once again rocking the organic food industry. In the video, a woman who identifies herself as a former employee of Whole Foods Market (WFM) testifies that she and other employees were deliberately trained by Whole Foods Market management to lie to store customers about whether the stores carry foods made with genetically engineered ingredients (GMOs).

(NaturalNews) – What the public doesn’t know won’t hurt them.
At least, that’s the thinking behind the Scientific American‘s recent editorial, “Labels for GMO Food Are a Bad Idea.” It argues, “Instead of providing people with useful information, mandatory GMO labels would only intensify the misconception that so-called Frankenfoods endanger people’s health.” Read the rest of this entry »
(NaturalNews) – Allow me to be the first to announce that TED is dead. Why? Because the group that organizes so-called “TED talks” has been thoroughly hijacked by corporate junk science and now openly rejects any talks about GMOs, food as medicine, or even the subject of how food can help prevent behavioral disorders in children. All these areas of discussion are now red-flagged from being presented on any TED stage. Read the rest of this entry »

What is now known as organic food today used to just be known as ‘food’ not so long ago.
(TruthStreamMedia) – More and more people are waking up to the fact that the widespread proliferation of genetically modified (GM) foods and petrochemicals are not only wreaking havoc on our environment, but wreaking havoc on us. More than 250 million acres are planted with GM crops each year. Again and again, honeybee Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) has been linked to pesticide use; for all the promises that genetically modified foods would result in less pesticide use, studies have actually confirmed the opposite to be true, giving rise to superweeds and superbugs. Herbicide use has only substantially increased. Read the rest of this entry »

(NaturalNews) – It’s called the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), and it’s a super secret trade pact being negotiated completely outside of law, with no congressional authority but with the aim of forcing nations around the world to ban GMO labeling, embrace Monsanto’s GMO crops and keep pharmaceutical prices artificially high to enrich the world’s medication monopolists.
