Ken Roseboro – Scientist’s ground-breaking research uncovers new risks of GMOs, glyphosate

Within just a few weeks, two studies were published in the peer-reviewed journal Scientific Reports that cast new doubts on the safety of genetically modified foods and glyphosate herbicide. The first found that a genetically modified corn, NK 603, was not substantially equivalent to a non-GMO counterpart, which is contrary to claims of GMO proponents. The second study found that …

Italy Just Banned Monsanto’s Top-Selling Herbicide From All Public Places

Italy just put massive restrictions on the use of Monsanto’s probably carcinogenicherbicide, Roundup, just as studies suggesting it is more toxic than previously assumed come under public scrutiny. Italy’s Ministry of Health has banned the spraying of the main ingredient in Roundup — glyphosate — in many public places that affect ‘vulnerable groups,’ including courtyards, gardens, roadways, sports fields, recreational areas, playgrounds, green areas outside …

Latin American scientists reject Nobel laureates’ letter supporting GM crops

The Union of Latin American Scientists Committed to Society and Nature (UCCSN-AL) has issued a statement rejecting the letter signed by Nobel Prize laureates in favour of genetically modified crops and GMO golden rice. About GM crop science in general, UCCSN-AL says: “[Transgenesis] cannot be considered an advanced science anymore because it is based on fallacious and anachronistic assumptions. Its defenders have …
