A new law will place restrictions on scientists with clear knowledge on GMO dangers, and create room for experts with overt financial ties to the biotech and pharmaceutical industries affected by EPA regulations. H.R. 1422, which passed 229-191, is an earthquake rumbling through the Environmental Protection Agency’s Scientific Advisory Board.
This means that the EPA can no longer be advised on their own research regarding GMOs or pharmaceutical drugs like antibiotics or vaccines. Can you say [...]

The Environmental Protection Agency is a federal agency that is charged with the responsibility of writing and enforcing legislation to protect human health and the environment. Established under Nixon in 1970, the EPA is another one of those agencies that sounds like a good idea, until you peel off the shiny friendly top layer to discover the stench of corruption underneath. Up until now, they at least pretended to be there to serve as watchdogs, but it seems like they’ve decided to gi [...]

How would you feel if I told you that a virus could be responsible for depleting human intelligence? According to scientists at Johns Hopkins Medical School and the University of Nebraska, a virus that infects human brains could be making much of the population ‘stupid’.
It sounds a bit bizarre, but the scientists stumbled upon an algae virus never before observed in healthy people. The virus was found to affect cognitive functions including visual processing and spatial awarenes [...]
Would you eat the newly approved genetically modified potato now set for commercial planting in the US? Studies suggest that most would not (though you won’t even be told thanks to the lack of GMO labeling), and now major food scientists are speaking out over the reality that the Franken potato may come with ‘worrisome’ and unknown consequences.
Upon breaking the news of the first GM potato approved by the U.S. Agriculture Department to hit your dinner table, it was quite clea [...]

It’s always interesting when biotech shills spout a bunch of their credentials on posts about GMOs, complaining that there is no scientific proof that genetically modified organisms are bad for our health, bad for the environment, or bad for food sustainability. But here’s something positive. In researching the true nutrition of food that is grown organically (without pesticides and herbicides, as GMOs are), one scientist that is well respected in her field found some revealing evidenc [...]

Western medicine has evolved tremendously over the years. While not perfect, we are in a better situation than 100 years ago when it comes to fending off disease. One of those primary advancements came in the form of antibiotics, able to treat numerous bacterial infections (though certainly not risk-free). Now, researchers from China have discovered what they call the first ‘virological penicillin,’ which may prove to be the next ‘antibiotic for viruses.’ Even better new [...]
Science proves what farmers already know: Goats make excellent weedkillers.
by JULIA WESTBROOK
Herbivores—not herbicides—is the way to go, according to research published in the journal PeerJ.
The researchers compared the effectiveness of goats versus chemical herbicides against the common reed—a grass that is overrunning coastal wetlands from New England to the Southeast. “For more than two decades, we’ve declared major chemical and physical warfare on this grass [...]

It’s a shocking 321-page report assembled by The Climate Depot: “More Than 1000 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims.” It names names. It lists reasons for the dissent. Reality is engineered consensus. But when that doesn’t work, “experts” just assert there is a consensus when there isn’t. “What the hell, let’s just say that ‘everybody agrees’ manmade warming is destroying Earth and we have ten m [...]
