Tell Starbucks to stop serving Monsanto: no more GMOs in our lattes


When you buy a latte at Starbucks, you may be inadvertently funneling money into Monsanto's pockets, too. It turns out that the milk served in Starbucks products comes from cows raised on genetically modified animal feed such as GM corn and soy products. "These crops degrade the quality of our land and water, perpetuate corporate-controlled agriculture, and have potentially negative health impacts on livestock," says GMO Inside. "Additionally, the overuse of antibiotics in industrialized farming is contributing to the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, putting us all at risk."

Monsanto ordered to stop making false advertising claims about GMOs in South Africa


As genetically modified crops fail in several regions around the world and are exposed as a detriment to health, many are beginning to see right through the high-dollar false advertising claims projected by biotech corporations like Monsanto.

New Monsanto non-GMO strains of produce are a ploy to confuse public between hybrid and GMO


The term hybrid, which you'll often see in seed catalogs, refers to a plant variety developed through specific, controlled cross-breeding between two parent plants. Usually, these are naturally compatible within the same species. This is the kind of hybridization that takes place naturally in the wild. All plant breeders who respect Mother Nature simply "steer the process" to control the outcome. This not a GMO; in other words, this normal hybrid would not be the result of genetic "engineering," or modification, of organisms for agricultural profits at the risk of human health.

Monsanto package admits seeds treated with 'poison,' advises against human consumption


Images are surfacing across the internet that illustrate the true dangers associated with genetically modified (GM) seeds, as admitted by the seeds' manufacturers. The Food Warrior Network recently posted a photo of a seed package distributed by Monsanto India Limited, for instance, that warns users not to consume the seeds or use them as food, oil or animal feed, because they are poisonous.

How and why GMO industry maligned Seralini's Roundup Ready corn and Roundup herbicide study


The journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT) removed the Gilles Eric-Seralini team's research paper recently. This happened after two major events. First there was a groundswell of "scientific criticisms" from scientists with or formerly with GMO industry connections. Some even with GMO patents. Their conflicts of interest were never an issue.

Monsanto's new herbicide-resistant GM crops threaten American vegetable farmers


Many American corn and soybean farmers embrace genetically modified seeds and herbicide chemicals. This biotechnology invention helps them produce higher crop yields without having to worry about weeds. Today's farmers can just apply, en masse, chemicals like glyphosate, which knock out the weeds, allowing the hybrid corn and soybeans to thrive. While this science seems to increase certain food production, it is actually limiting vegetable farmers.

Finally, Monsanto introduces new strains of food that are NOT genetically modified


Monsanto is a name that is synonymous with Big Agriculture and, more importantly, genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The company's Roundup herbicide, which is used almost exclusively around the world, has been blamed for the development of resistant superweeds that are filling up farmers' fields in the U.S. and abroad.

Latest studies show that glyphosate causes gluten intolerance


The incidence of gluten intolerance, celiac disease and other health problems linked to the consumption of wheat and gluten are on the rise world wide and seem to be reaching epidemic proportions. But while wheat, and more specifically gluten, have traditionally been blamed for this modern epidemic, new evidence points to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, as being a probable cause or contributor to this rapidly increasing health crisis.

Toxic waste dumped into quarry by Monsanto continues to poison British village


For a long time, the village of Groesfaen in the south of Wales, UK, was a desirable place to live. Quiet and untouched, yet located within short traveling distance of Wales' bustling capital city, Cardiff, Groesfaen had, by the turn of the twenty-first century, transformed from a nondescript hamlet into a small but prosperous hub of commuters - and with more housing estates being developed every year, its future seemed positive.
