(NaturalNews) What was once considered an excellent resource for educating young minds about science and the environment is now aggressively promoting industry-backed "science," including the claim that water fluoridation is completely safe and anyone who questions it is a disreputable conspiracy theorist.

In operation since 1888, the National Geographic Society is one of the largest nonprofit scientific and educational institutions in the world, educating minds about geography, archaeology and natural science, as well promoting environmental and historical conservation.

While that may have once been the case, the largely influential scientific nonprofit is now dedicated to pushing the agenda of corporations poisoning and destroying the planet.

For those of us who are science-literate, Nat Geo's March 2015 cover is shocking. The issue attempts to confuse readers by comparing wild conspiracy theories, such as the assertion that the U.S. moon landing was faked, with justifiable concerns over the safety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and the correlation between vaccines and autism.

The cover reads as follows:

Climate Change Does Not Exist

Evolution Never Happened

The Moon Landing Was Fake

Vaccinations Can Lead to Autism

Genetically Modified Food is Evil

Alongside the bullet points reads: "The War on Science."

The message here is that, if you refute industry-funded "science," such as questioning the safety of GMOs or the true cause of changes in climate patterns (a topic that's still highly debated among the science community), then you're a looney toon who also probably believes evolution doesn't exist and that we never landed on the moon.

By placing "Vaccinations can lead to autism" (a statement that's supported by scientific evidence), next to "Genetically modified food is evil" (a subjective statement that fails to address widespread concerns from a significant portion of the scientific community), Nat Geo is falsely equating questions on vaccine and GMO safety with archetypical "conspiracy theories."

Nat Geo: "Why Do many Reasonable People Doubt Science?"

It is in fact Nat Geo who is waging a war on science, not the other way around. The question of whether or not GMOs are safe for long-term human consumption is hardly agreed upon in the scientific community, yet Nat Geo states that those who question GMOs are waging a war on science.

As Timothy A. Wise with the Global Development and Environment Institute (GDAE) reports, "Since when is the safety of genetically modified food considered 'settled science' on a par with the reality of evolution?"

Wise also said it best when he wrote:

Genetically modified food is evil? First of all, what business does "evil" have in an article about scientific consensus? ... How in the world does author Joel Achenbach define "scientific consensus?"


Clearly, Achenbach and Nat Geo define "scientific consensus" as the biased statements put out by rent-a-scientists hired by the industry to deceptively promote their own agenda.

The issue's leading article, "Why Do Many Reasonable People Doubt Science?" describes the health benefits of water fluoridation as "thoroughly established," as well as pokes fun at anti-fluoridation activists, referring to their ideas as "stuff of comedy."

Nat Geo's comments about fluoride are incredibly reckless considering that new research suggests water fluoridation increases hypothyroidism, a condition in which the thyroid gland fails to produce enough hormones, resulting in symptoms such as fatigue, obesity and depression. Evidence also suggests that fluoride lowers IQs, particularly affecting the minds of developing children.

This evidence is so widely accepted that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency altered their recommendations for adding fluoride to the public's water, decreasing it from 1.2 to 0.7 milligrams, reducing the dose by nearly half.

While disappointing, the puzzle begins to piece together once you understand that Nat Geo is nearly 100 percent advertiser-funded by Big Pharma and Big Food, as well as the biotech and vaccine industries.
