Citizens in Hungary have located and destroyed 1000 acres of cornfields that were found to be grown with GMO seeds supplied by Monsanto.
In Hungary, GMO seeds are banned along with other GM ingredients.
Since the unexpected refusal last month of three EU member states to go along with the decision of the EU Health and Food Safety Commissioner and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to re-approve the world’s most widely used weed killing chemical, Glyphosate, dramatic and encouraging developments suggest that for the first time the power of GMO agrochemical giants like Monsanto and Syngenta, Dow and DuPont, BASF, Bayer could undergo a devastating defeat. Were this to happen, it could well be the death knell for the misbegotten Rockefeller Foundation Genetic Manipulation project that has destroyed much of Western farmland and poisoned hundreds of millions of GMO fed farm animals and humans.

Burkina Faso’s cotton association is seeking 48.3 billion CFA francs ($83.91 million) in compensation from U.S. seed company Monsanto after it said genetically modified cotton led to a drop in quality, association members said on Monday.
Cotton is the second-biggest source of revenue for the impoverished West African country after gold.
The African Centre for Biodiversity (ACB), in a new report published Monday titled, “For your own good!” The chicanery behind GM non-commercial ‘orphan crops’ and rice for Africa shows that the GM industry is expanding its grasp to African traditional crops such as cassava, sorghum, sweet potato, pigeon pea, cowpea, banana as well as rice under the guise of philanthropy.
The report reveals that a great deal of research and development is currently underway into the genetic modification (GM) of these crops, with most of the on-going trials being focused on drought and salt tolerance, nitrogen use efficiency, resistance to tropical pests and diseases and nutritional enhancement (biofortification). The key countries that have been targeted include, Burkina Faso, Egypt, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda and Malawi. Continue reading »

How chemtrails, vaccines, and gmo foods are manipulating the minds and bodies of mankind is explored with Jason Christoff. The elite motivation to automate humanity into a computer class of workers, and how that extends to the practice of inoculating people with mind-numbing chemicals, plus the natural remedies for the pollution is discussed. Questions about HIV & AIDS, and the grim possibility of a post-human society is illuminated in this uncensored Buzzsaw, hosted by Sean Stone.
Jason Christoff is a certified CHEK Exercise Coach and Certified Holistic Lifestyle Coach (Level II). Jason started his first fitness facility after graduating from McGill University with a degree in Labour Relations. He went on from there to help many friends open their own fitness facilities. Along the way he opened a couple more of his own as well. In the past couple of years he has focused solely on designing nutrition and weight loss programs that focus on full cleansing of the body and disease reversal. Health through proper nutrition is my passion.
In 2002 one of Dr. Rima E. Laibow’s patients, a head of state, told her:

Washington D.C. — Controversy over genetically-engineered salmon intensified Thursday, as a “broad coalition of environmental, consumer, and commercial and recreational fishing organizations” filed a lawsuit against the FDA over safety and environmental concerns surrounding its approval of the fish.
Food & Water Watch, Center for Food Safety, and the Center for Biological Diversity are joined by a number of other organizations in the lawsuit coalition, which issued a statement on the litigation: Continue reading »
Kellogg’s and Mars have joined General Mills and Campbell’s by announcing that they will start to label their products in the U.S. that contain GMOs with the words “Produced with Genetic Engineering”, after the blocking of the new Dark Act in the U.S. Senate.
Kellogg North America President Paul Norman told Agri-Pulse on Monday that barring congressional action on the labeling issue some of the company’s labels would start carrying the words “Produced with Genetic Engineering” as soon as mid-April. The labels will appear nationwide, not just in Vermont, “because a special label for Vermont would be costly for us and our consumers,” Norman said. Continue reading »
The Detox Project is launching a revolution in food testing Wednesday, with low-detection LC/M/MS lab testing for the World’s most used herbicide, glyphosate, in food products across the United States and globally.
Glyphosate Testing in Food Products:
The Detox Project is first testing for glyphosate and its metabolite AMPA and will move on to helping independent labs to develop low-detection food testing for a wide-range of toxic chemicals in food products over the next three years. Continue reading »
U.S. Presidential Candidate Senator Bernie Sanders issued the following statement Wednesday after the U.S. Senate blocked the “New Dark Act”, by Kansas Senator Pat Roberts that would have stopped Vermont and other states from requiring labels on genetically modified foods:
“I am pleased that Congress stood up to the demands of Monsanto and other multi-national food industry corporations and rejected this outrageous bill. Today’s vote was a victory for the American people over corporate interests.
“Sen. Roberts’ legislation violates the will of the people of Vermont and the United States who overwhelmingly believe that genetically modified food should be labeled. Republicans like to talk about states’ rights, but now they are attempting to preempt the laws of Vermont and other states that seek to label GMOs. Continue reading »
General Mills, a highly unethical food corporation that bitterly fought against labeling GMOs in California and Oregon, has now surrendered to Vermont’s labeling laws and announced it will start labeling GMOs across the country. Continue reading »
United States — General Mills’ announcement Friday that it would voluntarily label products containing genetically-modified ingredients means Vermont, one of the smallest states in the Union, might have just managed a coup for consumers.
Vermont’s new law, which requires such labeling, goes into effect July 1st and is expected to create a ripple effect across the nation. As the Washington Post reported, Connecticut and Maine, in particular, have already “passed laws that require such labeling if other nearby states put one into effect.” Continue reading »
In a decision made public late Friday, a Thurston County Superior Court judge ruled the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association violated Washington campaign finance disclosure laws by shielding the identities of major corporate donors funding efforts to defeat a food labeling initiative in Washington.
“This landmark case has been a long fight for accountability,” Attorney General Bob Ferguson said. “This ruling sends an unequivocal message: Big money donors cannot evade Washington law and hide from public scrutiny. My office will hold you accountable.” Continue reading »
The DARK Act was defeated in the U.S. Senate today, achieving a massive victory for consumers and also for the Environmental Working Group, which helped organize large-scale opposition to the bill.
The DARK Act would have outlawed state-level GMO labeling laws nationwide, condemning American food consumers to remaining completely in the dark over the genetically engineered content of their food.
Natural News thanks all our readers who took action to help defeat the DARK Act. We are fighting for your right to know what you’re eating, and with your help, we really can defeat Monsanto and its minions like Ted Cruz. (“Monsatan’s Preacher.”) Continue reading »
U.S. presidential candidate and Texas senator Ted Cruz went all-in for Monsanto on the campaign trail in Iowa, parroting Monsanto’s propaganda by proclaiming that GMOs are feeding the world while insulting health-conscious consumers by equating support of GMO labeling with “anti-science zealotry.”
At the Iowa Agricultural Summit, Cruz revealed that he in effect fully supports the mass poisoning of the American people with hidden (unlabeled) GMOs, cancer-causing glyphosate herbicide, farmer suicides caused by GMO crop failures and the widespread genetic pollution unleashed by genetically modified crops. “[W]e shouldn’t let anti-science zealotry shutdown the ability to produce low-cost quality food for billions across the globe,” he stated, invoking a false claim that’s actually a widely disproven Monsanto talking point.

(NATURALSOCIETY) Genetically modified mosquitoes designed to limit the spread of the Zika virus will likely soon be unleashed in the southern United States, as the federal government said today it decided to permit a field test in the Florida Keys.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said it had made a preliminary determination that the GM mosquitoes are unlikely to harm humans, animals, or the environment. Continue reading »
Residents of the Hawaiian Islands just breathed a sigh of relief – literally, as the deadline passed for Hawaii’s House Judiciary Committee to hear House Bill 849, relating to Right to Farm, that would force residents to succumb to pesticide spraying without any say. All the while, companies like Monsanto, Dow, Syngenta, and BASF use Hawaii land as a testing ground for GM crops.

Following a meeting with EU Health Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis on Friday, French Minister of Ecology Ségolène Royal has announced that France will vote against the EU re-licensing of glyphosate, the world’s most used herbicide.
Source: 6 min:10 sec of video in French: tvnewsroom
Royal also added that France was not backing the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) on their recent safety assessment of glyphosate and was instead basing their decision on the report of the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in 2015, which declared glyphosate to be a probable human carcinogen. Continue reading »
Six environmental NGOs (Global 2000, PAN Europe, PAN UK, Generations Futures, Nature et Progrès Belgique and Wemove.EU) from five European countries filed Wednesday a formal legal complaint against those responsible for the assessment of glyphosate in Europe, for denying the probable carcinogenic effects of the chemical and getting its European market license renewed.
In March 2015, glyphosate was classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as a probable human carcinogen. But in Europe, the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) – acting as a Rapporteur for the European Commission – and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), approved the industry’s application and proposed to classify glyphosate as “non-carcinogenic”. The 2009 EU pesticides law (1107/2009) forbids active substances which can cause cancer from being used as pesticides but now the green light has been given for glyphosate’s re-approval in Europe.
On Wednesday, Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley and three more Democratic Senators Patrick Leahy, Jon Tester, and Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation that would ensure that U.S. consumers can find GMO ingredient labeling on food packaging while ensuring that food producers are not subject to confusing or conflicting labeling requirements in different locations.
The senators’ legislation presents an alternative to a Senate Agriculture Committee bill that would hide ingredient information from consumers by overturning state GMO labeling laws. Continue reading »

In 2015 the World Health Organization’s cancer agency IARC declared that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen.
Uzbekistan’s President Islam Karimov has stated that the country will ban the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in baby food over health concerns.
Karimov made the announcement as part of the government program named Year of Healthy Mother and Child. According to the program, Uzbekistan plans to amend the law on quality and food safety, thus prohibiting GMOs in baby food.
Uzbekistan will also adopt measures to restrict the import and consumption of all products containing GMOs. Uzbekistan may soon also be added to the growing list of countries around the World which officially prohibit the cultivation of GM crops, according to anonymous sources in the country’s scientific community.

The approval process for glyphosate herbicide is disputed because the commercial herbicide formulations as sold and used contain additives or co-formulants, which are more toxic than glyphosate alone. Yet glyphosate alone is tested to calculate the ADI or acceptable daily intake, the level that is supposedly safe to consume over the long term. That’s in spite of the fact that we are exposed to the formulations, not the isolated presumed active ingredient glyphosate. Continue reading »
On Thursday thirteen civil society organisations active in agriculture and environmental issues have officially alerted the European Commission that the wild ancestor of cultivated maize, teosinte, has appeared in Spain and is spreading widely in maize growing areas as an invasive species.
Teosinte and maize have the potential to interbreed and form hybrids. This applies equally to genetically engineered maize MON810, produced by Monsanto and grown on more than 100,000 hectares in Spain. Due to the risks of appearance of an invasive, transgenic teosinte species, the organisations have asked the Commission and the Spanish government to ban the cultivation of MON810 in 2016.

In the latest insult to scientific transparency and food consumers everywhere, the U.S. Congress is pushing hard to pass the DARK Act that would outlaw all mandatory GMO labeling nationwide.
This act of outrageous food secrecy is being pushed by Monsanto and the evil biotech industry. It’s the latest desperate attempt to keep consumers in the dark about all the poisonous GMOs and glyphosate they’re eating. When the voters keep demanding labeling laws — and passing them! — the poison-pushing industry’s weapon of last resort is to pay off the lawmakers to ban mandatory GMO labeling. Continue reading »
Russia has dealt a huge blow to U.S. farmers, after banning all imports of U.S. soybeans and corn due to microbial and GMO contamination, the country’s food safety regulator Rosselkhoznadzor announced on Thursday. The ban will come in to place on February 15.
U.S soybean exports totaled over $156 million in 2013 and were continuing to rise fast in 2014 and 2015. U.S. corn exports to Russia on the other hand were relatively small – for example, from September 2013 to June 2014, Russia imported only 4,742 metric tons of U.S. corn. Continue reading »
Bernie Sanders is the only U.S. Presidential candidate who has come out strongly in support of GMO labeling. For this reason Sustainable Pulse has collected a few of his quotes:
Bernie Sanders Quotes on GMO Labeling
“Unlike people in the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Australia, South Korea, Japan, Brazil, China, Russia, New Zealand and other countries where labels are required, Americans don’t know if the food they eat has been genetically modified. People have a right to know what they are eating…”
“I think all over this country, people want to know the quality of the food they’re eating and what they’re giving to their kids is good quality. We just don’t know all that much about genetically modified food. . .”
Despite all the public hoopla, all the cases of microcephaly being discovered in Brazil have never been scientifically linked to the Zika virus. A group of doctors from South America are now saying the brain deformations the world is witnessing are caused by the mass fumigation of low-income Brazilian people with a chemical larvicide, not by mosquitoes carrying the Zika virus.
What we’re seeing with the brain deformations of children, in other words, is more like the history of thalidomide, a prescription medicine given to pregnant women that caused children to be born with limbs missing. But the official narrative on all this is pushing a false link with Zika in order to justify more chemical fumigation, more vaccines and more genetically engineered mosquitoes.

“Seems Monsatan has been part of John Perkins’ Hitmen Group for decades…
– Monsanto and the Mustard Seed By Vandana Shiva
(Article in full down below.)
And they’re still at it, destroying economies, cultures, health…who needs war when Monsatan’s about?
In 2013, India’s former Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar accused US companies of derailing the nation’s oilseeds production programme. Similar claims had been made before. For instance, we could revisit the 1998 mustard oil tragedy. At the time, Rajasthan Oil Industries Association claimed that a “conspiracy” was being hatched to undermine the mustard oil trade and charged that the “invisible hands of the multinationals” were involved (see the article ‘Monsanto and the Mustard Seed’).
India was almost self-sufficient in edible oils by the mid-1990s. Its farmers met 97% of domestic need. However, its edible oil import bill has increased dramatically since then. By 2013, India was the world’s second biggest importer of edible oils. Food and trade policy analyst Devinder Sharma notes that between 2006-07 and 2011-12 alone edible oil imports rose by 380%.

Monsanto Co will pay $80 million to settle civil accounting violations after it allegedly misstated its earnings in connection with its top-selling Roundup product, U.S. securities regulators said on Tuesday.
The Securities and Exchange Commission also said that three accounting and sales executives have also agreed to settle charges in connection with the case. Continue reading »
