Safety Group Blows Lid on 'Secret Virus' Hidden in GMO Crops
Natural Society Article | February 7, 2013 | By Anthony Gucciardi
    Yet another disturbing reason has emerged as to why you should
    be avoiding health-devastating genetically modified organisms,
    and it may be one of the most concerning yet. We know that GMO
    consumption has been linked to a host of serious conditions, but
    one thing we are not so sure about is the recent discovery of a  
    hidden viral gene deep within genetically modified crops.
For years, GMOs have been consumed knowingly and unknowingly around the globe, with Monsanto and the United States government claiming that the altered franken crops are perfectly safe despite very limited (or virtually none in some cases) initial testing and scientists speaking out against the dangers. One such danger that has actually not been spoken about has been revealed in a recent report by a safety watchdog group known as the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).   READ MORE...
Nearly Half of All US Farms Now Have Superweeds
Mother Jones Article | February 6, 2013 | By Tom Philpot

    down the spread of weeds that have developed resistance to
    Monsanto's herbicide Roundup (glyphosate), used on crops
    engineered by Monsanto to resist it. More than 70 percent of all
    the the corn, soy, and cotton grown in the US is now genetically
    modified to withstand glyphosate.

Back in 2011, such weeds were already spreading fast. "Monsanto's 'Superweeds' Gallop Through Midwest," declared the headline of a post I wrote then. What's the word you use when an already-galloping horse speeds up? Because that's what's happening. Let's try this: "Monsanto's 'Superweeds' Stampede Through Midwest."       READ MORE...
