GMOs Force Naked Juice To Drop ‘All Natural’ Label

Thanks to companies like Monsanto and its friends in the federal government, it’s nearly impossible to know whether foods and beverages contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Apparently, it’s up to big corporations to decide what we eat, and not us. In response to public outcry, however, some companies have begun voluntarily alerting us to the presence of GMOs in their […]

Superweeds: How GMO Biotech Crops Bolster the Pesticide Industry

Genetically engineered (GE) crops were first approved in the United States in the 1990s, and since then the United States has been the biggest global adopter of this technology. GE crops were supposed to improve yields, lower costs for farmers and reduce agriculture’s environmental impact. Yet nearly 20 years after their introduction, genetically engineered crops have not provided the benefits […]

Can Eating GMO’s Make Us Less Human?

A recent Chinese study by Cell Research points to how GMO’s may alter normal organ functions. As explained so thoughtfully by fellow journalist, Mike Adams – the Health Ranger – in a video clip below, genetically modified foods contain programmed DNA. This DNA is programmed to make food behave in certain ways, often times producing insecticides in order to kill […]

GMO corn, soybeans dominate US market

The discovery of unauthorized genetically engineered wheat growing on a farm in the US state of Oregon has cast a spotlight on agricultural biotechnology and the debate about its safety. While genetically engineered or genetically modified (GM) wheat has not been approved for commercial planting, GM corn and GM soybeans already reign supreme on American farms. By 2012, 88 percent […]

Monsanto is a Ticking Time Bomb for U.S. Agriculture

It has already begun: Japan has just cancelled a large contract to purchase U.S. wheat. “We will refrain from buying western white and feed wheat effective today,” Toru Hisadome, a Japanese farm ministry official in charge of wheat trading, told Reuters. As many readers well know, I predicted precisely this scenario just yesterday in a Natural News article warning about […]

Top Reasons to Say No to GMO Corn & other GMO crops

Top Reasons to Say No to GMO Corn & other GMO crops

On its corporate website, Monsanto claims that approved genetically-modified (GM) crops are “substantially equivalent” to non-GMOs, meaning they are not nutritionally different from non-GMO crops, but their claims are false: 1. GMO corn is highly toxic and filled with deadly crop chemicals like glyphosate (Roundup), a neurotoxin. 2. GMO corn contains about 19 times more glyphosate than is permitted as […]

Study Highlights Dangerous Health Effects of Glyphosate

A review of the scientific literature of the toxic effects of glyphosate, one of the most popular weed killers in the U.S. and the active ingredient in Roundup, links the herbicide to a wide range of diseases and suggests that more research is needed. The review, conducted by a scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), looks at the mechanisms […]
