The Monsanto Papers: Suspicions Confirmed

Though spokespersons for the Monsanto Company are running the defense, as usual, the Monsanto Papers, namely emails turned over to the plaintiff’s lawyer in a Roundup cancer lawsuit, reveal their claims of rigorous testing and scientific review more questionable than ever. The plaintiff’s Council published this group of emails on its website a couple of weeks ago, which the chemical giant wasn’t expecting, and demands they be removed. Too late. It seems they missed a filing deadline. There’s no retracting this. There are some smoking guns in those emails, starting with them inventing their own definition of “independent.” A...

How To Avoid PFC Chemical Exposure at Home

Have you seen the newest issue of Garden Culture Magazine? There’s an article about PFC chemical toxins, namely PFOA and GenX, polluting the Cape Fear River that supplies some 250,000 people in North Carolina with drinking water.

Hmm… what else are they in? Well, lots of other things in your home or work place. And there’s no way to remove it from the water – or you. PFOA, PFOS, PTFE, C8,...

Is That a Monsanto Food Company on Your Shopping List?

In early 2011, someone published a Monsanto Food Company List to boycott and it continued to circulate right up into last year. The most recent two publishers took the time to type it out… all 68 names in alphabetical order. The thing is – that list is outdated and contains errors. It’s mostly a list of brands with some companies mixed in. Firstly, brands change hands in the food industry. Secondly, Monsanto doesn’t produce any food or beverages.  But ConAgra does, and this major food producer is a Monsanto subsidiary (according to Corporate Watch in 2005). Finding no news of...

GMO Food Company Has Verified Non-GMO Foods?

The world’s largest GMO foods company is in partnership with the Non-GMO Project. Go ahead, read it again, but it’s unlikely to change your grasp of the words. It doesn’t matter if you’re demanding non-GMO foods, or a proponent of GMOs – there’s something wrong with this picture. The conventional farming world is in an uproar at this news from Cargill, and the discerning consumer should be too. Who is Cargill? One of the oldest agricultural companies in the United States, who over the past 150 years has grown into a multinational conglomerate whose interests span all aspects of crops...
