|1/20/2015 - Before you protest against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and march against everything which they stand for, it's important to know some of the many ways in which companies and their scientists are modifying nature, patenting it, and profiting from it. First, there's the most controversial method...|
|12/19/2014 - The way that practically every disease, health condition and even behavior is blamed on "faulty genetics" these days has thwarted the way that people process scientific information, according to a new study. Researchers from the University of Montreal in Canada found that, when presented with popular...|
|12/6/2014 - Genetics are not a onetime deal, handed down through birth. Fate doesn't rest on genes alone. Nature is more interconnected than that; gene expression is influenced by proteins, enzymes, and bacterial hosts. Larger organisms are directly impacted by invisible hosts, the bacteria living inside. In fact,...|
|11/30/2014 - With increasing demand on the global market for foodstuffs free of genetically modified organisms, U.S. farmers face a serious economic dilemma.

Care to guess who will be manufacturing this vaccine...|
|9/6/2014 - An abomination known as genome editing, or GMO 2.0, is rapidly gaining media attention as a more refined and accurate way of manipulating natural organisms at the genetic level to bring about desired results without error.

|9/5/2014 - To better understand mental disorders and neurological problems, scientists are beginning to take a closer look at the study of epigenetics and the endocrine-disrupting chemicals affecting DNA. This kind of study goes beyond just the study of genetics, which looks solely at changes in DNA sequence between...|
|9/5/2014 - For those living in US, about 70 percent of the processed foods one consumes daily actually contain genetically modified (GM) ingredients. Should this be of concern? Yes! Studies, few as there are, show a strong link between GM-foods and cancer. And it is time to learn about them.
Proponents of GM-foods...|

|8/15/2014 - After analyzing three sets of different blood samples from 325 patients, a Johns Hopkins Center for Prevention Research Study determined that there are links between lowered levels of a gene called SKA2, plus a higher level of chemical changes that alter its function, and suicidal tendencies. (1) The...|
|8/7/2014 - The British government has been accused of misleading its people in refusing to acknowledge that babies born through a new controversial in vitro fertilization (IVF) technique will actually be "genetically modified."
Britain's The Telegraph newspaper reported that, in late July, the UK government...|
|8/4/2014 - Genetic hackers eager to open the floodgates to genetic engineering 2.0 are being met with resistance by level-headed scientists who recognize that new efforts to push genome editing, or the recreation of entire species at the genetic level, represent an irreversible threat to life on this planet. In...|
|7/7/2014 - The effect of lifestyle habits on type 2 diabetes risk is so large that it renders genetic susceptibility insignificant, according to a study led by researchers from the University of Cambridge and published in the journal PLOS Medicine.
The study was funded primarily by the European Commission.
|6/25/2014 - The same company that released millions of genetically modified (GM) mosquitoes into the wilds of the Cayman Islands several years ago is now planning to unleash millions of "Frankenflies" throughout Brazil.

|6/24/2014 - The idea that DNA from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is broken down in the digestive tract and rendered innocuous, a common industry claim, is patently false. A recent study published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE found that large, meal-derived DNA fragments from GMOs are fully capable...|
|6/3/2014 - In the eyes of some professors and scientists, genetically modified foods can be an open door toward transhumanism -- believing that mankind can break through current physical limitations by genetically altering food, offspring and the environment.
Could this really be an ulterior motive in the minds...|
|5/24/2014 - One in three people carries a genetic variant that makes them especially sensitive to increased colorectal cancer risk from processed meat consumption, according to a study conducted by researchers from 27 different institutions and published in the journal PLOS Genetics on April 17.
|5/20/2014 - We may not associate much risk with seemingly "inedible" genetically modified crops like cotton, but the dangers are very real. GM cotton actually poses a triple threat -- Bt pollen, widespread use of cottonseed oil in the food industry and cottonseed cake fed to animals. Researchers are now concerned...|
|5/8/2014 - A study published April 29 in the journal Nature Communications has provided the first proof that a mother's diet can change the expression of genes in her unborn child. The study was conducted by researchers from the Medical Research Council (MRC) International Nutrition Group at the London School...|
