Are you in enough pain to swallow this pill? Stanford scientists have developed a new way of creating painkiller components like hydrocodone by injecting 23 different engineered genes from plants, bacteria, and rats into yeast.
The result is the beginning of the journey towards ‘GMO painkillers,’ and another entrance into the world of genetically modified pharmaceuticals. A world that far expands beyond the tinkering of Monsanto’s GMOs. The ‘advancement’ places i [...]

Bad news: Frito-Lays SunChips have just tested positive for weed killer and GMO ingredients. The chips are marketed as a ‘healthy’ alternative to regular chips as a means to lessen the chance of developing heart disease, but if your dining on Round Up (glyphosate residues) and GM Bt toxins found in most genetically modified corn, then ‘healthy’ as Frito-Lay defines it takes on a new meaning.
Samples were sent to a lab by GmoFreeUSA.org. They used quantitative PCR test verification by DN [...]
The mainstream media has blatantly propagandized biotech’s favorite product – GMOs. At least according to Belinda Martineau, Ph.D., who wrote to the magazine complaining about their shoddy journalistic stance.
One key article presented by the New Yorker not only misrepresents how GMO crops are created, but also fails to mention any of the risks of genetically engineered crops. Even the FDA has admitted there are “unexpected” changes that can occur as a result of utilizing the techniqu [...]
In light of the highly questionable effects of genetically modified organisms and modern agriculture, yet another celebrity has spoken out against Monsanto and the hotly debated creations known as GMOs. You may not agree with everything that Bill Maher says, host of HBO’s Real Time, and an often-billed guest on talk shows, but you have to at least applaud his outspoken stance on GMOs and Monsanto. Maher is unabashed about slamming the big agricultural food mega-corps and the people who supp [...]

The “Seralini study” drew massive attention worldwide for its depiction of horrific tumors in rats fed on Monsanto’s GMO corn. The famous study has just become... [...]
A recent peer-reviewed study (published in the Food and Chemical Toxicology Journal) has linked genetically modified foods to an increase in cancer risk in laboratory animals. In the study, the ra... [...]
