Real Rewilding – Glenn Aparicio Parry, PhD

In an attempt to circumvent enmity toward genetically modified foods, Danish scientists are proposing what they claim is a precision breeding technique called “rewilding.” It is named rewilding because it mixes current genes from a plant with ancient genes of the same plant (old genes that were either lost or bred out somewhere along the way). The name sounds harmless, …

Roundup Ready, Bt-Toxin and GMOs — A Dangerous Trinity That Encourages Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Disease By Carolanne Wright

In 2012, at least 283.5 million pounds of glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup Ready) was used in U.S. alone.

Not everyone agrees that GMOs have been proven harmful to humans, which is why the food chains listed here were selected specifically because they are responsible for a wide variety of health violations—the GMOs and their …

Study shows how GM crops can have diminishing success fighting off insects

A new study from North Carolina State University and Clemson University finds the toxin in a widely used genetically modified (GM) crop is having little impact on the crop pest corn earworm (Helicoverpa zea) – which is consistent with predictions made almost 20 years ago that were largely ignored. The study may be a signal to pay closer attention to …

GMO science deniers: Monsanto and the USDA

What you may not know is that Monsanto and our United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) are among them. That’s right: for decades, Monsanto and its enablers inside the USDA have denied the central tenets of evolutionary biology, namely natural selection and …
