Here is the cold, hard truth: our government is not protecting us from the toxic chemicals being sprayed on our nation’s food supply.

And some of these dangerous poisons are even making their way into organic food.

What You Need to Know:

* Glyphosate is the world’s most popular chemical, with approximately 250 million pounds used each year in the U.S. and 1.65 billion pounds used globally.

* The World Health Organization said that glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp, is a “probable human carcinogen”, which means that it probably causes cancer to humans.

The State of California has said that glyphosate causes cancer and is now requiring Monsanto to put a cancer warning label on its RoundUp products. Read more »


HUGE NEWS: Scientific Study Says that GMOs are Not “Substantially Equivalent” to Non-GMOs

The U.S. government approved GMOs under the premise that they were “substantially equivalent” to Non-GMOs, which means that they are compositionally the same as Non-GMOs, in terms of safety and nutritional profile.

More than anything, however, this substantial equivalence term was a way for Big Seed companies to get their products to market quickly without any long-term safety studies or scientific scrutiny. This was corporate influence and manipulation over the regulatory process at its finest. Read more »

If you were under the impression that our government is here to protect us, now is the time that we demand that they do so.

A blockbuster new report by Food Democracy Now! and The Detox Project shows that our health is in serious jeopardy because of the most widely used chemical in the world: glyphosate.

Glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp, was was called a “probable human carcinogen” by the World Health Organization. This means that it probably causes cancer in humans.

Even more alarming is that 250 million pounds of it are used in the U.S. each year — on farms, lawns, parks and schools, among many other places.

New scientific evidence shows that probable harm to human health could begin at ultra-low levels of glyphosate at 0.1 parts per billions (ppb). This is 1,750 times lower than what the EPA currently claims is safe. Read more »


Report: Environmental Working Group busts the Myth that U.S. Industrial Agriculture Will End World Hunger

One of the myths that GMO apologists constantly promote is that genetically-modified food produced in the U.S. is required to “feed the world” and anyone who fights against GMOs, according to Purdue University president Mitch Daniels, is “callous, heartless and cruel”.

With the United Nations estimating that the global population will reach 9 billion by 2050, Monsanto et al has positioned GMOs as a “moral imperative” to stave off global hunger. After all, people in developing countries can in no way feed themselves, they would like us to believe. American agriculture is the only solution. Read more »
