GMOs news, articles and information:
|4/23/2016 - Celebrity scientists such as Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michio Kaku and Bill Nye keep their careers afloat by embracing mainstream scientific theories and presenting them to the public in a reassuring show-biz manner – and not by applying any real criticalal thought themselves.

|1/13/2016 - Right now, all the focus for increasing crop yields is centered on one method: Genetically modifying crops to make them resistant to pesticides and herbicides. In this model of farming, haste makes waste. Instead of working with the land, we poison it instead with chemicals like glyphosate. Even the...|
|1/10/2016 - Even as the fascist, corrupt U.S. government and its regulators (FDA and USDA) actively conspire with the biotech industry to poison Americans with genetically modified foods, Taiwan has already passed and implemented a nationwide law to protect its citizens from GMOs.
Nearly a full year ago, Taiwan...|

A few meetings with Monsanto and the rest of the corporate cabal later, and Nye seems to have suddenly regressed into a propaganda mouthpiece for the powers that be, aggressively pushing...|
|3/24/2015 - Chemical farming is the norm, but it does not have to be. There are now more options than ever before that will allow farmers a higher yield without having to lace the soil with chemicals and then treat the crops as well. Knowing about these options can make a world of difference and can help farmers...|
|3/23/2015 - We all know that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have not been proven safe based on the fact that there are no long-term studies on the health affects of GMOs or their associated pesticides. However, many skeptics insist that, because there are few studies showing harm from GMOs and the U.S. Food...|
|3/20/2015 - A major missing link in the search for what's triggering a massive spike in autism rates appears to be the world's best-selling weedkiller, Roundup.
