However, they don’t seem to go after individuals such as Don Huber, Professor Emeritus of Plant Pathology at Purdue University and among the most qualified scientists in the world to examine threats to America’s food supply. (Dr. Huber has written a letter to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack warning of the discovery of a new pathogen and a possible link between Roundup Ready® (GMO) corn and soybeans and severe reproductive problems in livestock as well as widespread crop failure. See videos below.) Read More »
Carol Alt, a supermodel who has been on over 700 magazine covers and is an author of several raw food books, hosts an amazing show dedicated to health. Much to my surprise, it seems that Fox has given her absolute free rein in terms of content for her show.
Not only has she advocated for raw milk and talked about the dangers of vaccines on her program, but she enthusiastically agreed to discuss GMOs.
And for a major television network to allow the topic of GMO-labeling to be discussed is simply amazing. Read More »
With the continued popularity and importance of farmers markets around the country, it would seem logical that our government would put in place policies to protect these treasured institutions and the people who supply them the food.
The problem, however, is that the success of local and organic farmers markets is a serious threat to Big Agriculture. These massive companies would prefer that our entire diet consist of nutritionally-devoid, genetically-modified soy and corn instead of healthy organic produce grown by local farmers. Read More »
There has been a ton going on in the organic food world lately, so let me get you caught up.
The other day I wrote about the trick that major food companies were employing in Washington State’s GMO-labeling campaign. They funneled their money through the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) in order to avoid disclosing their opposition to GMO-labeling. Why did they do this?
In last year’s Proposition 37, California’s ballot initiative to label GMOs, these companies faced HUGE backlash and didn’t want to receive that negative publicity all over again.
Well, the Attorney General in Washington believed that this maneuver violated state laws and filed a lawsuit to force disclosure of who donated money to defeat his state’s GMO-labeling initiative. The GMA quickly folded and made the donor names public. Not surprisingly, it was many of the same players who were against Proposition 37 in California.
