Top 10 reasons GMOs should be labeled

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.

Why your genes don't have the final word on your health

2/12/2015 - We have learned a lot over the years when it comes to genetics and how they affect our health.
