Sorry, Monsanto. The Science Is on Our Side, Not Yours

A few weeks ago, I spoke by phone with Cathleen Enright, executive vice president of the Biotech Industry Organization (BIO). (Long story).

During the course of our conversation, when we touched on the subject of the science behind the debate over whether or not GMOs are “safe” (me arguing that there’s no scientific consensus) Enright said, “Then you must not believe in climate change, either.”

I glossed over that accusation, though it struck me as odd. And random. Until less than a week later, on March 9 (2015), an article appeared in the Guardian under this headline: “The anti-GM lobby appears to be taking a page out of the Climategate playbook.”

Processed Foods Indisputably Linked to Auto-Immune Disease
U.S. fast foods have twice the salt of other countries


Great news! Processed food isn’t as bad as you’ve been told!

How I wish that could be the headline for this article, but microwave meals and processed convenience foods are still killing us softly, as I’ve reported before. This time, the study points to a considerable increase in auto-immune diseases like multiple sclerosis, alopecia, asthma, and eczema.

A class action lawsuit alleges a mold byproduct used in kibble is leading pets to agonizing deaths.

Despite years of online allegations that one of the most popular dog food brands has been poisoning pets, it wasn’t until just weeks ago that the cat was let out of the bag in a court filing. A class action lawsuit was filed that blames the deaths of thousands of dogs on one of Purina’s most popular brands of chow.

Googling Nestle Purina Petcare’s Beneful brand will get you the pet food manufacturer’s website, a Facebook page with over a million likes, and, in stark contrast, a Consumer Affairs page with 708 one-star ratings supported with page after grim page detailing dogs suffering slow, agonizing deaths from mysterious causes.

Internal bleeding. Diarrhea. Seizures. Liver malfunction. It reads like something from a horror movie or a plague documentary, but a suit brought in California federal court by plaintiff Frank Lucido alleges that this is all too real—and too frequent to be a coincidence.

  Genetically modified crops and foods are neither safe nor necessary to feed the world, a new report by genetic engineers shows.

The second edition of GMO Myths and Truths, co-authored by genetic engineers Dr John Fagan and Dr Michael Antoniou and researcher Claire Robinson, was released today as a free online download by the sustainability and science policy platform Earth Open Source.

Doctors warn about effects of sugar-free soft drinks

Asparatame, found in diet soft drinks, is claimed by some to cause side-effects

Experts warned recently about young people’s consumption of caffeine in energy drinks. Now the artificial sweetener aspartame has come under the microscope and Metroxpress is warning about the potentially harmful effects of the chemical found in the sugar-free varieties of soft drinks.

Is there a difference? Perhaps one of my readers can help me differentiate between one poison and the other. Whether you inhale it, drink it or eat it, a poison is a poison. I don't defend smoking, but there is a shameful double standard that exists at the expense of smokers and they know it. Why do government officials allow graphic images of disease on cigarette packages without extending the same courtesy to the labels on cosmetics, alcohol and junk food, some of which cause more disease and deaths annually than tobacco.

Marketing is acknowledged to be an important contributor to disease. It exists in numerous forms, the most recognized being television advertising. While there are efforts within policy to curb the incidence of marketing tactics which promote disease-promoting substances, those efforts appear to be quite biased.

The factory farmed meat industry tells us that beef is a nutritional powerhouse with essential nutrients we need for energy. They tell us that meat is one of the best sources of iron and packed with vitamins. According to the authorities on meat, it's also calorie-wise and part of a heart healthy diet to manage cholesterol. Despite all these outlandish claims by the industry, they never tell us what actually goes into meat. What preservatives are permitted after slaughter? What chemicals are used to inhibit growth of bacteria or enhance color? How is shelf-life prolonged? These are all details the meat industry does not elaborate on or explain at any length. Here are the facts they don't want you to know.

Synthetic preservatives are added to 70 percent of all factory farmed meat and poultry to prevent spoilage, rancidity and mould growth. If you're going to invest your money in meat products, the only way to preserve your health is to stay away from factory farmed, chemically and artificially produced meat. Here are 10 things most people have no clue are inside most meat products at major grocery retailers.

A revolutionary new study reveals that the core tenet of classical
genetics is patently false, and by implication: what we do in this life --
our diet, our mindset, our chemical exposures -- can directly impact the
DNA and health of future generations.

A paradigm shifting new study titled, "Soma-to-Germline Transmission of RNA in Mice Xenografted with Human Tumour Cells: Possible Transport by Exosomes, " promises to overturn several core tenets of classical genetics, including collapsing the timescale necessary for the transfer of genetic information through the germline of a species (e.g. sperm) from hundreds of thousands of years to what amounts to 'real time' changes in biological systems.

In classical genetics, Mendelian laws specify that the inheritance of traits passed from one generation to the next can only occur through sexual reproduction as information is passed down through the chromosomes of a species' germline cells (egg and sperm), and never through somatic (bodily) cells. Genetic change, according to this deeply entrenched view, can take hundreds, thousands and even millions of generations to manifest.

We now know that an increase in asthma coincides with a switch from butter to certain oil-based diets. A large new Northwestern Medicine study ties the increasing consumption of supposedly healthy vitamin rich oils -- canola, soybean and corn -- to the rising incidence of lung inflammation and asthma. All three oils coincidentally come from genetically modified sources.

The new study shows drastically different health effects of soybean, corn and canola oils in comparison to olive oil , the latter which can actually improve lung function.

Asthma is a chronic, lung condition that narrows the airways, according to the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute . The disease causes chest tightening, wheezing and coughing. In the U.S., about 25 million people suffer from asthma, of which at least 7 million are children.
