Two-Thirds of Americans Believe Scientists Do NOT Understand GMOs
naturalsociety.com
An article published at Business Insider spotlights a new survey from Pew Research Center which says two-thirds of Americans interviewed think that scientists don’t fully understand GMOs, and therefore cannot guarantee people are safe if they eat genetically modified food. The article goes on to explain that this ‘flies in the face of any logic,’ seemingly ignorant of the fact that Americans have realized that an industry which pays for its own studies can’t be believed. Even the PhD’s [...]

SCOTUS Rules Against Limiting Mercury Pollution from Power Plants
naturalsociety.com
“The rules curbing emissions of mercury and other hazardous air pollutants began to take effect in April.

GMO Bacon? ‘Genetically Modified’ Pigs on the Horizon
naturalsociety.com
Are you ready for modern-made ‘GMO’ bacon? With the near-future possibility of gene-modified pigs coming to your local grocery store, this may be yet another biotech reality.

Antidepressants May be Worsening Depression, Not Treating it
naturalsociety.com
Author: Julie Fidler For years we’ve been told that depression is caused by low serotonin levels in the brain. Now, a leading professor of psychiatry is warning that belief is little more than a dangerous miscommunication, saying the marketing of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) drugs is “based on a myth.” SSRI use began to skyrocket in the early 1990’s. The drugs were seen as a safer alternative to tranquilizers, which were the standard treatment for depression until t [...]

Revealed: Documents Prove EPA Knew Glyphosate was Carcinogenic 30 Years Ago

Documents from 1985 have recently been uncovered which show how the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was fully aware of glyphosate’s carcinogenic potential for the last 30 years – yet the organization has done nothing to lessen glyphosate’s use. It helps that the World Health Organization’s (WHO) IARC recently announced that not only was Monsanto’s glyphosate ‘probably carcinogenic,’ and then followed with a determination that three other pesticides (2,4-D [...]
