South Korea Joins Japanese Ban on U.S. Wheat Imports After Shocking GMO Contamination Announcement by USDA

News about the GMO contamination of U.S. wheat crops seems to be spreading faster than the GMOs themselves. On Friday, South Korea joined Japan in announcing a halt on imports of U.S. wheat due to the USDA’s recent announcement that commercial wheat grown in the USA is contaminated with Monsanto’s genetically engineered wheat.

Some Americans may still not realize this, but GMOs are outlawed or shunned nearly everywhere around the world. Continue reading

Hungary Torches 500 Hectares of GM Corn to Eradicate GMOs from Food Supply

When it comes to protecting the public from GMOs, Hungary knows how to get the job done: set fire to the fields growing GM corn!

Although environmentalists might at first argue about the ramifications of burning so much organic matter right out in the open, the deeper truth is that genetic pollution poses a Continue reading

Analysis Identifies Shocking Problems with Monsanto’s Genetically Engineered Corn

Story at-a-glance

  • A 2012 nutritional analysis of GMO versus non-GMO corn shows shocking     differences in nutritional content. Non-GMO corn contains 437 times more     calcium, 56 times more magnesium, and 7 times more manganese than GMO corn     
  • GMO corn was also found to contain 13 ppm of glyphosate, Continue reading

There Are Antibiotics in your Organic Apples and Pears

You may not be aware of it, but every time you bite into that crisp, organic apple or succulent, organic pear, you could be exposing yourself to two different antibiotic drugs that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)’s National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) has quietly allowed to be used on these two fruits since the organic program’s inception back in the 1990s. Continue reading

Approved by the USDA — Common Additive in Organic Food Triggers Significant Inflammation and Cancer

Think the USDA has your back concerning organics? Think again. Behind closed doors, corporate interests reign supreme where certified organic policy is concerned. A prime example is the use of carrageenan as a common ingredient. Linked with cancer and inflammation, this accepted additive opens a floodgate of serious health issues. And consumers are generally unaware of the risks while savoring their organic fare. Fortunately, The Cornucopia Institute has exposed the hypocrisy while providing resources for avoiding this disturbing substance Continue reading

Most Probiotic Supplements Made with Genetically Modified Flow Agents, Fillers

A Natural News investigation into the probiotics industry has turned up alarming information about how probiotics are formulated and labeled. We’ve found that nearly all probiotics available in the U.S. market today are secretly formulated with genetically modified ingredients that are intentionally not listed on the label. The most common such ingredient is maltodextrin, a corn-derived flow agent.

Look for yourself at the probiotics Continue reading

Shocking Findings in new GMO Study: Rats Fed Lifetime of GM Corn grow horrifying tumors, 70% of Female Die Early

Eating genetically modified corn (GM corn) and consuming trace levels of Monsanto’s Roundup chemical fertilizer caused rats to develop horrifying tumors, widespread organ damage, and premature death. That’s the conclusion of a shocking new study that looked at the long-term effects of consuming Monsanto’s genetically modified corn. Continue reading

Harvard Study: Pasteurized Milk from Industrial Dairies Linked to Cancer

The truth has once again shaken the foundation of the ‘American Tower of Babel’ that is mainstream science, with a new study out of Harvard University showing that pasteurized milk product from factory farms is linked to causing hormone-dependent cancers. It turns out that the concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFO) model of raising cows on factory farms churns out milk with dangerously high levels of estrone sulfate, an estrogen compound linked to testicular, prostate, and breast cancers. Continue reading

California to Require Labeling for all GMO Salmon

The miserable failure of both the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to stand up for the interests of the people and require proper labeling of AquaBounty’s genetically-modified (GM) salmon, which is set to be approved soon, has led California legislators to take matters into their own hands. According to Red, Green & Blue, the California Assembly Health Committee recently approved a measure requiring the “Frankenfish” to be clearly labeled so consumers are aware of what they are purchasing.

AB 88, which was introduced by  Continue reading

USDA Identified Bacterial Strain for Crops Control

The Researchers from the US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agricultural Research Service (ARS) have made an interesting and noteworthy discovery concerning the use of soil bacteria in controlling crop pests. Michael Blackburn, an entomologist at the ARS Invasive Insect Biocontrol and Behavior Laboratory in Beltsville, Md., and his colleagues recently found that pest-eliminating strains of soil bacteria with a certain type of enzyme survive better than strains without the enzyme, which means they are ultimately more effective at eliminating pests without the need for much human intervention.

Published in the journal Biological Control, the results of the study represent a significant milestone in understanding natural bacterial pest control. The findings not only expand the viability of using soil  Continue reading
