In Panama, as in the US, GMOs are permitted in the food chain without any labeling at all. This is an ecological, medical and consumer´s rights disaster.

Only strong consumer advocacy, and market pressure against anything which might have GMOs in it (that means avoiding anything which is not labeled "organic" or "GM Free") will change US policy. But once the environment, or your body, is contaminated with foreign DNA, there is no know way to reverse that process.

Health officials warned consumers today about an outbreak of salmonella in raw tomatoes, following the illness of one woman in Contra Costa County and 144 other infections nationwide.

The source of the tomatoes is still unknown, but officials believe that large tomatoes, including Roma and round red, are carrying the strain, Salmonella sereotype Saintpaul, that has infected 145 people since mid-April. Red plum tomatoes may also be affected, according to a statement by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

While the Topps Meat Co. churned out millions of frozen hamburgers a month, beef ground one day was often stored and "reworked" with meat from another production cycle, government documents show.

A conveyor belt that moved raw patties to packaging was marred by "gouges, cracks and tears," inspectors said. They found residue on surfaces that fresh meat came into contact with. But the plant kept operating, until an outbreak of E. coli last summer...

Just in time for barbecue season, some meat purveyors are rolling out beef raised on grass or other organic feed -- and are promising that their products are tastier and healthier.

While most of the cuts do nicely on a grill, a few have sweet flavors that could turn off even die-hard carnivores. While most of the cuts do nicely on a grill, a few have sweet flavors that could turn off even die-hard carnivores.

The problems with Genetically Modified (GM) foods are as many as they are varied. Respected scientists have risked everything to step forward and warn consumers that this new "solution to world hunger" is bad for their health.

Giant agri-business companies such as Monsanto forge ahead to flood the world's food chain with experimental technologies that are proving to be harmful to life. The worst part is, the longer this reckless experiment is allowed to go on, the closer we get to a complete planetary takeover by Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO).

A new study shows that exposure to a chemical called diacetyl, a component of artificial butter flavoring, can be harmful to the nose and airways of mice.

Scientists at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), conducted the study because diacetyl has been implicated in causing obliterative bronchiolitis (OB) in humans. OB is a debilitating but rare lung disease, which has been detected recently in workers who inhale significant concentrations of the flavoring in microwave popcorn packaging plants.
