  • The World According to Monsantoby Marie-Monique RobinThe book tells the shocking story of how the new "green" face of the world's leading producer of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) is no less malign than its PCB- and Agent Orange-soaked past. Following its long history of manufacturing hazardous chemicals and lethal herbicides, Monsanto now controls the majority of the yield of the world's genetically modified corn and soy-ingredients found in more than 95 percent of American households-and its alarming legal and political tactics to maintain this monopoly are the subject of worldwide concern.

  • From Sterility to Stomach Holes: 11 Scientific Reasons Why You Must Avoid GMOs Nowby Sarah Ages: 14+It is estimated that over 80% of processed foods now contain genetically modified organisms, also called GMOs. The rapidity with which these frankenfoods have invaded and continue to expand within our food supply is nothing short of terrifying.Subjects: GMO, dangers, dangers, unhealthy, processed, Monsanto's Roundup Ready, GMO beets, sugar cane, growing children, Journal of Organic Systems, Food and Chemical Toxicology

  • Grass fed does not mean organicby Kali Sinclair Ages: 18+Cattle raised in feed lots live their lives in unsanitary, inhumane conditions. The concentration of many animals in a small, confined space leads to disease and pollution from waste. Animals are routinely treated with antibiotics (70% of the antibiotics in the U.S. are used for livestock), and the animals are not allowed the freedom or room to exercise. Their feed is unnatural to their diets. In addition, much of their feed is GMO.Subjects: resource, grass fed beef, antibiotics, GMO, natural diet, organic, USDA Grass Feed Division, antibiotics

  • How to Make Mayonnaise Ages: 14+It is so simple to make delicious, homemade mayonnaise, with your own wholesome stabilizers, no preservative, no additives. As with many foods, there is a risk of salmonella from ingesting raw egg. I use the freshest egg possible, namely from my own chicken, and thoroughly wash the shell before using.Subjects: resource, vinegar, mustard, blender, chipotle jalapeno, salmonella, immune systems, gmo, avoid, raw egg

  • Video: Make Your Own Healthy Ketchupby Sarah Ages: 14+The king of condiments in the Western world is undoubtedly ketchup. In America alone, over a half billion bottles of ketchup are sold every year. Unfortunately, this ketchup is usually full of high fructose corn syrup - definitely not part of a healthy diet!Subjects: resource, high fructose corn syrup, lactofermented, gmo, enzyme, cayenne peppe, liquid whey, fish sauce,

  • Is Organic Always GMO Free? Ages: 14+Buying 100% Organic, Certified Organic, and USDA Organic-labeled products is usually the easiest way to identify and avoid genetically modified ingredients. If USDA certification requires at least 95% of content to be organic, and a GMO ingredient can't be included in that 5%, then USDA Organic is GMO-free, right? Not always. Depending on the product, sometimes there are tiny loopholes.Subjects: GMO free, genetically modified foods, organic products, loophole list, organic certification procedures, GMO contamination, organic farmers, genetically engineered Kentucky Bluegrass, USDA Organic

  • Genetically modified foodby Wikipedia Ages: 18+The DNA of genetically modified organisms has been modified through genetic engineering, unlike similar food organisms developed through the conventional genetic modification of selective breeding or mutation breeding.

  • Genetically Modified Foods -- Are they a risk to Health?by Arpad Pusztai Ages: 18+How can the public make informed decisions about genetically modified (GM) foods when there is so little information about its safety? The lack of data is due to a number of reasons...Subjects: article, safety, genetically modified (GM), food, data, crops, additives

  • Lyme/Autism group blasts GM foods as dangerousby Jeffrey Smith Ages: 18+The five main GM foods are soy, corn, cotton, canola, and sugar beets. Their derivatives are found in more than 70% of the foods in the supermarket. The primary reason the plants are engineered is to allow them to drink poison.Subjects: article, GM food, health, corn, soy canola, research, FDA, digestive tract, Lyme Induced Autism (LIA)

  • Bad Seed -- The Truth About Our Foodby Scared Crow Productions, Inc. Ages: 18+Life has evolved on our planet for billions of years. Humans now have the technology to undo nature's wisdom and destroy the very blueprint of life.Subjects: video, promotion, GE food, GMO, DVD, technology, health

  • Genetically Modified Foods: Harmful or Helpfulby Deborah B. Whitman Ages: 16+The term GM foods or GMOs is most commonly used to refer to crop plants created for human or animal consumption using the latest molecular biology techniques. These plants have been modified in the laboratory to enhance desired traits such as increased resistance to herbicides. The enhancement of desired traits has traditionally been undertaken through breeding, but conventional plant breeding methods can be very time consuming and are often not very accurate.Subjects: resource, GM foods, FDA, pollen, studies, regulatory procedure, government, crop plants, pesticides, geneticists, food supply, pest resistance, herbicide

  • How to Avoid-Genetically-Modified-Foodsby Serj Sagan Ages: 18+Whether genetically modified (GM) foods are safe or harmful is still controversial. Most foods we eat may contain ingredients derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs)--everything from baby formula and food to our dairy to even our meat. If you live in Europe, avoiding GM foods is easier since laws require labeling. However in the US and Canada food manufacturers are not required to label if their food is genetically modified or not.Subjects: resource, history, article, Europe, genetically modified foods, labeling, guidelines, list, law, US, Canada, super market

  • Irrefutable evidence that GMO can harm you! Ages: 18+Nature is a living organism that functions through every cell and organ that is working together. There is nothing isolated in nature and everything is connected with one another. All these years, science has been trying to discover and explore complexity that exists in nature. In the last few decades one of the crisis that our planet has been facing is modern agricultural. Extensive farming, use of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, genetically modified foods or crops and invention of hormones and antibiotic that are fed to our livestock have drastically changed everything.Subjects: GMO, GM food, crops, risks, health, environmental health, DNA, science, living organism, Monsanto, hormones, antibiotic

  • Quotes from FDA Scientists Ages: 18+Key documents revealing the hazards of Genetically Modified foods and flaws with how the agency made its policy. You will see scanned reproductions (exact copies) of some of the Food & Drug Administration's (FDA) internal memoranda about the hazards of genetically engineered foods. These documents became available through the Alliance for Bio-Integrity's lawsuit (Alliance for Bio-Integrity et al., vs. Shalala, et al.) to gain mandatory safety testing and labeling of these foods.Subjects: FDA, food, Alliance for Bio-Integrity, health, DNA, safety testing, toxicology, biotechnology

  • GM Foods the Problem, Not The Solutionby Julio Godoy Ages: 16+BONN - The food crisis has prompted some looks towards genetically modified food production as a solution. That in turn has led to stronger warnings over the consequences of such food for health and the environment. These concerns have been raised in Bonn again as more than 3,000 delegates from 147 countries met for the UN conference on biosafety. The conference has sought to ensure safe use of modern biotechnology.Subjects: article, GM foods, France, environment, biosafety, agriculture, food production, organic, contaminationLocation: Bonn

  • Introduction: GM Organisms Ages: 16+GM technology has now been applied to almost all forms of life, from bacteria to goats. Is it the future? Start deciding for yourself with our beginner's guide. By far the most common genetically modified (GM) organisms are crop plants. But the technology has now been applied to almost all forms of life, from pets that glow under UV light to bacteria which form HIV-blocking "living condoms" and from pigs bearing spinach genes to goats that produce spider silk.Subjects: resource, technology, GMO, European anti-GM food campaign, labelling laws, Agrobacterium tumefaciens, engineered crops, frankenfood, environment, environmentalists, globalisation

  • Labelling of GMO Productsby GMO Compass Ages: 18+Freedom of Choice for Consumers - GMO labelling was introduced to give consumers the freedom to choose between GMOs and conventional products. Essentially, if a foodstuff is produced using genetic engineering, this must be indicated on its label. Actual labelling practice, however, is far more complicated...

  • Monsanto vs Schmeiser: The Classic David vs Goliath Fight Genetically Altered Food Fund Inc. Ages: 18+David versus Monsanto a film by Bertram Verhaag - Now on DVD! Imagine that a storm blows across your garden - and that now, without your knowledge and without your consent, foreign and genetically-manipulated seeds are in your vegetable patch which you have nourished and maintained for many years. A few days later, representatives of a multi-national corporate group pay you a visit at home, demand that you surrender your vegetables and file a criminal complaint against you...Subjects: Law Suit, Monsanto, Roundup Ready gene, The Supreme Court of Canada, contaminated canola, Location: Saskatchewan Canada

  • Controlling Our Food: A Documentary On Genetically Modified Foodsby Julie Savage Ages: 18+On March 11, 2008 a new documentary was aired on French television, a documentary that Americans won't ever see. The gigantic bio-tech corporation Monsanto is threatening to destroy the agricultural biodiversity which has served mankind for thousands of years. A genetically engineered food is a plant or meat product that has had its DNA artificially altered in a laboratory by genes from other plants, animals, viruses, or bacteria in order to produce foreign compounds in that food. This type of genetic alteration is not found in nature and is experimental. Many of the foods we currently eat and feed our families (including certain baby formulas and a high percentage of corn, soy, cotton and sugar beets commonly used in processed foods sold in the U.S.), but we don't know which ones without labeling.Subjects: video, Monsanto, PCBs, GMO, food, water, contaminated, cancer, diabetes, pregnancyLocation: Alabama
