Monsanto ordered to stop making false advertising claims about GMOs in South Africa

monsantoguilty(NaturalNews) As genetically modified crops fail in several regions around the world and are exposed as a detriment to health, many are beginning to see right through the high-dollar false advertising claims projected by biotech corporations like Monsanto.

(Note that in the 40s and 50s Monsanto made false safety claims about their own insecticide, DDT. By 1972, independent research showed the horrific consequences of this insecticide which ultimately led to the chemical being banned worldwide.) (more…)

Monsanto’s new herbicide-resistant GM crops threaten American vegetable farmers

Organic-Farmer-Tomatoes(NaturalNews) Many American corn and soybean farmers embrace genetically modified seeds and herbicide chemicals. This biotechnology invention helps them produce higher crop yields without having to worry about weeds. Today's farmers can just apply, en masse, chemicals like glyphosate, which knock out the weeds, allowing the hybrid corn and soybeans to thrive. While this science seems to increase certain food production, it is actually limiting vegetable farmers. (more…)

Comparison of GMO and non-GMO corn – the real statistics will astound you!

monsantocorn(NaturalNews) As Monsanto parades their genetically modified seed, throwing it out like candy into the fields, future generations are being subjected to nutritionally void, disease-causing food.

oregonmonsantoFresh off a big win in Congress, the pro-GMO lobby is working its legislative magic again—this time at the state level.

If passed, an Oregon law would prevent individual towns and counties from regulating the planting, production and sale of genetically engineered crops and products. Behind Oregon's Senate Bill 633—which could come to a vote as early as the end of this week—are cleverly named advocacy groups like Oregonians for Food and Shelter, which actually are lobbyist groups for biotech giants that produce GMO seeds.

DOJ Mysteriously Quits Monsanto Antitrust Investigation

There's an age-old tradition in Washington of making unpopular announcements when no one's listening—like, you know, the days leading up to Thanksgiving. That's when the Obama administration sneaked a tasty dish to the genetically modified seed/pesticide industry.

This treat involves the unceremonious end of the Department of Justice's antitrust investigation into possible anticompetitive practices in the US seed market, which it had begun in January 2010. (more…)
