Vegetables are important to your health and should be incorporated into every meal that you take. Well, there is nothing better than eating fresh vegetables, not just fresh but organic vegetables. Sadly, the market has various brands of vegetables i.e. organic and GMO tomatoes. The latter is a product of genetic engineering, which is essentially the science of modifying genes in plants so

Humanity is facing a toxicity problem as our immediate environment becomes increasingly riddled with pesticides. They are making us unhealthy faster than we can study the effects. In addition to causing harm to humans, these pesticides play large roles in the massive bee deaths and decline of soil health. The companies that profit from making these pesticides have made it clear they won’t stop, and our petitions to the EPA and FDA are mostly ignored due to revolving door leadership between pesticide makers and government regulators. So is

Joining the lineup of companies that are kneeling to public pressure, candy-maker Hershey has recently announced that it will soon remove genetically modified ingredients from its milk chocolate and Kisses by the end of 2015. What’s more, the company is pledging to shift to ‘simple ingredients,’ which will be exemplified by the removal of emulsifier polyglycerol polyricinoleate (PGPR) and artificial vanillin. Coming straight from Hershey’s website: “What sparked these ingredient changes? Have consumers been asking Hershey to move to simpler ingredients/labels? As a consumer-centric company,

There is hope. In a world where manipulation, deception, lies, and censorship abound to serve the purposes of those with power, sometimes truth prevails. In 2012, research by Gilles-Eric Séralini, et al was published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT).The conclusions clearly showed that the genetically-modified (GM) corn NK603—both with and without the use of the pesticide Roundup—causes liver and kidney malfunction, cancer and death in rats. In 2013, the study was removed from the journal due to pressure by Monsanto, the owner of


DNA from GMOs can Pass Directly into Humans, study confirms

The idea that DNA from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is broken down in the digestive tract and rendered innocuous, a common industry claim, is patently false. A recent study published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE found that large, meal-derived DNA fragments from GMOs are fully capable of transferring their genes directly into the bloodstream, deconstructing the myth that transgenic foods act on the body in the same way as natural foods. A combined analysis of four other independent studies involving more than 1,000 human
