The success of well-known brands such as Coca-Cola and Kraft Foods depends greatly on positive public relations. It makes even more sense now for GMA to do its members' bidding given how controversial opposing GE food labeling has become for the food industry.
"Conventional" farming -- especially with corn, soybeans, wheat, cotton, and sugar beets -- now increasingly means using GMOs, which is the subject of Jeffrey Seifert's documentary GMO OMG.
The agrichemical companies may have the best lobbyists in town. Last May, the agrichemical giants -- Monsanto, Dow, Syngenta, Bayer, DuPont, BASF -- pulled off a stunning maneuver to protect their massive profits.
Yes, this is turning into a mutant species horror movie. We, the people, are being biologically changed, by chemicals that disrupt our endocrine and neural development.
I'm so happy about GMO's I could just about split my genetically engineered gut, which of course will auto heal at a far greater rate than a normal gut as I've been genetically modified with a lizard gene DN4 which promotes rapid re-growth of lost limbs and tails.
Before we march off into this dark future where the source of our food comes from companies that would like to control all seed and food supplies, remember to find a congressman who would vote against the TPP.
This is just despicable. Reprehensible. Maria Rodale, the CEO of Rodale, Inc., has likened the purposeful murder of more than 1,400 people in Syria by sarin gas to the alleged health harms of the products of chemical companies.
There is no shortage of ways to move in the more sane direction of a food system that actually feeds everybody, provides decent livelihoods, and preserves ecological integrity.
You are a smart man. You are not up for reelection. This is your big chance to make the right choice and take the right road, the road less traveled. This is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to leave a lasting legacy of peace and healing rather than more destruction.
To paraphrase Clarissa Pinkola Estes, "If you have ever been called defiant, incorrigible, unruly, or rebellious, you are on the right track." Shakes...
So do Syngenta, DuPont, and Dow Chemical. Those companies, along with a couple others in the biotech industry, have decided that they've been bad at c...
On July 31, 2013, there will be a public hearing on the island of Kauai that has no precedent. This hearing comes a month after the first reading of...
If action isn't taken quickly and soon, I am fearful of what the long term, unrestrained use of pesticides will do to the ecology of Hawaii. What the general public needs to know, is that GMO research in Hawaii requires the use of powerful restricted use pesticides.
This award not only communicates a false connection between GMOs and solutions to hunger and agricultural degradation, but it also diverts attention from truly "nutritious and sustainable" agroecological approaches already proving effective.
In May 1994, a tomato appeared on supermarket shelves across the country that was unlike anything Americans had eaten before. Grown from so-called...
Apparently the way to revive lackluster seed monopolies is to guarantee them a monopoly on ending hunger. But giving the World Food Prize to the monopolies profiting from hunger is like awarding the Nobel Peace prize for going to war... wait, that's already been done.
