A Wyoming legislative panel is considering a proposal that would ask the federal government to take the lead on how genetically modified foods are labeled.

The Joint Agriculture, State and Public Lands and Water Resources Interim Committee is scheduled to consider this month a resolution asking Congress to pass legislation creating a national policy for the labeling of the products.

Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, a top health care institution in the US, has finally given McDonald's the boot upon the realization that fast food may just not be the best choice for the sick (or anyone, really).

Well thank you, Cleveland Clinic! Considering that McDonald's food is full of GMOs, MSG, eggs that are a strange 'non-egg combination,' dimethylpolysiloxane (a silicone that can also be found in Silly Putty), and calcium silicate (a sealant used on roofs and concrete), you'll likely see an immediate improvement in your patient's health.

AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES reveals genetic engineering of soy disrupts the plant's natural ability to control stress, and invalidates the FDA's current regulatory framework of "substantial equivalence" used for approval of genetically engineered food (GMOs).

The study, led by Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, Ph.D., an MIT-trained systems biologist, utilizes his latest invention, CytoSolve, a 21st century systems biology method to integrate 6,497 in vitro and in vivo laboratory experiments, from 184 scientific institutions, across 23 countries, to discover the accumulation of formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, and a dramatic depletion of glutathione, an anti-oxidant necessary for cellular detoxification, in GMO soy, indicating that formaldehyde and glutathione are likely critical criteria for distinguishing the GMO from its non-GMO counterpart.

Edinburgh, Scotland-Scottish rural affairs secretary Richard Lochhead announced genetically modified crops would be formally banned, saying that the move will help preserve Scotland's "clean, green status."

This decision follows up a previous ruling by the European Union earlier this year that allows member states and devolved administrations to restrict or ban the cultivation of genetically modified organisms within their territory. This decision includes the genetically modified maize previously approved by the EU, along with six other crops currently awaiting

The Pana, Ill.-area farmer had been using corn and soybean seeds genetically modified to work with glyphosate - the generic name for Monsanto's signature Roundup herbicide. But he reached a point at which he said it no longer made sense.

So he turned his back on GMO crops. "As they added more traits, we didn't really see a yield advantage. And every time they added a trait, they added cost," said Beyers, who also worries that GMO seeds could be damaging his soil.

Former pharmacist Niraj Naik hit headlines last week when his study into Coca-Cola went viral online after outlining what allegedly happens to your body after drinking a can of Coke.

"A can of diet coke provides no nourishment and would replace a more nutritious drink you could have drunk while potentially depleting your body of essential minerals. "It will never quench your thirst as it dehydrates rather than hydrates your body. A lack of vital water can lead to brain fog, poor concentration, fatigue and feeling irritable."

If there is one plant image that has come to epitomise herbal medicine and good health in the last two decades, it would be the purple cone flower of echinacea. Splashed on supplements, chemist walls, natural healing centres.

It's prominence is well-deserved offering a range of potent medicines and a strong alternative to pharmaceutical antibiotics for Staphylococcus, Streptococcus and tuberculosis. In our ever-escalating chemical arms race with germs, we look set to come off as the losers. Each year seems to see the mass-outbreak of drug-resistant bacteria and viruses that modern medicine just can't seem to nail. Plants, especially herbs, offer our greatest hope. So why is it that plant therapies can work where the pharnmaceutical companies are failing? Complexity in nature, is a fine thing.

Whatever your views on GMOs, there is no Constitutional justification for the federal government to preempt state laws in this area.

Today, 275 members of the U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor of H.R. 1599, the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act. By voting for the DARK Act, these politicians voted against truth and transparency, against science, against the more than century-old right of states to legislate on matters relating to food safety and labeling. They voted against the 90-percent of Americans who are in favor of mandatory labeling of GMOs. They voted against the producers of non-GMO foods.
