Today, 15 January 2014, WikiLeaks released the secret draft text for the entire TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) Environment Chapter and the corresponding Chairs' Report.

A film examining the controversy surrounding genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) was screened at the Wilmette Public Library on Nov. 14. "Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives" was shown as part of a Go Green Wilmette co-sponsored event.

As consumers we need to know about the dangers we face from the altered end products we eat every day. "Genetic Roulette", which was based on Jeffery Smith's book Seeds of Deception, establishes possible links between GMOs and many of the health issues we face today: asthma, allergies, autism, inflammation, particularly in the gut, and more. His advice? Use vegetable oil instead, eat organic foods as much as possible and encourage the labeling of GMO products so you can make your own informed choice about what you want your family to eat.

Did you know that eating conventional produce increases your risk of pesticide contamination by 30%? And chowing down on non-organic chicken and pork increases your risk of exposure to antibiotic-resistant bacteria by 33%?

If you're not already sold on the benefits of eating organic, consider this: organic foods may have more nutrients than their conventionally produced counterparts. Organic broccoli, for example, has higher levels of antioxidants and vitamin C than the traditionally produced variety, found a 2012 Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture study. There's also evidence of more heart-healthy omega-3s in organic poultry and dairy.

"What's on your fork?" the Oct. 11 Daily News asked in a story. That's what I'd like to know. But Monsanto and other GMO-producing corporations want to keep it a secret from us.

According to every poll, the vast majority of Americans want genetically-modified food labeled as such. Over 60 countries, including all of Europe and China and Japan either require labeling of GMO food or have simply banned it outright. Russia has outlawed GMO seed and food, seeking to preserve the healthfulness of its food and the integrity of its soil (GMO seed requires massive applications of pesticide which is conveniently manufactured by the same GMO companies).

Utilities must hand over customer records - which include credit card numbers, phone numbers and power consumption data - to the authorities without court warrants if drug agents believe they are "relevant" to an investigation.

The Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 allows the authorities to make demands for that data in the form of an administrative subpoena, with no judicial oversight. In this instance, the Drug Enforcement Administration sought the records of three Golden Valley Electric Association customers in Fairbanks, Alaska suspected of growing marijuana indoors. "The information subpoenaed does not need to be relevant to a crime; in fact, it may be used to dissipate any suspicion of a crime," Judge William Fletcher wrote for the unanimous, three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. "The information subpoenaed need only be relevant to an agency investigation. Energy consumption records can be relevant to an investigation into a suspected drug crime."

Thousands of families without income aren't participating in the state's welfare program; some say it's too daunting, but other participants say it's easy to navigate.

Stung by recent findings that far more families who may be eligible aren't enrolled in the program, the state is revamping W-2 to make it easier to understand and ensure those struggling aren't improperly turned away.

When the Center for Environmental Health released test results showing that Pepsi intentionally covered up the presence of high levels of 4-Mel in its popular soft drinks in 2013, the company denied both the presence of this chemical in its beverages...

And the fact that it was dangerous. 4-Mel, which is short for 4-Methylimidazole, is a compound that is formed in the manufacturing of caramel coloring, and is a known carcinogen. Since then, the drinks maker has fought against complying with California state requirements to place a cancer warning label on the beverages that contain the ingredient, which include not only Pepsi, but also Diet Pepsi and Pepsi One.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - It's something you're likely eating every day, but may not realize it. Genetically modified foods have been around for nearly 20 years, and the use of the technology is only increasing.

Liz Feng never gave much thought to where her food came from until desperation forced her to start looking. "My hair started falling out, skin problems," she described. "Everything all at once, allergies, just bam. It's like I'm a different person!" With no specific diagnosis, Liz started researching her food.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Chips have been used extensively in wildlife ecology and conservation to identify and track individual specimens in a population.

It has been unknown, however, how often RFID chips have been implanted in human populations for the tracking and identification of individuals. This study analyzed the prevalence of RFID Chips in 3 geographically discrete populations and found that, on average, 1 in 3 individuals carried an RFID Chip. Interestingly, there was a strong correlation with RFID Chip presence and previous dental work.
