'Natural' on food labels is misleading

Consumer Reports is pushing to have the 'natural' claim banned

Published: August 2014

What is natural, and what does it mean on a food label? Right now it’s essentially meaningless. But it ends up misleading a great many consumers, according to a recent national survey of more than 1,000 Americans by the Consumer Reports National Research Center.

Outrage over US secret approval of GM trees

January 30, 2015

There is widespread condemnation today of the US government’s decision to allow the first genetically engineered tree to be commercialised.

The GM loblolly pine has been legalised with no government or public oversight, with no assessment of its risks to the public or the environment, and without regard to overwhelming public opposition to GM trees.

Monsanto Patent revoked on Tomatoes

December 23, 2014

The European Patent Office revoked Monsanto’s patent on tomatoes this month because Monsanto only obtained the patent in the first place “based on a combination of fraud, abuse of patent law and biopiracy,”

FDA Admits That It Doesn’t Know What’s In Your Food

September 15, 2014

And in hundreds of cases, the FDA doesn’t even know of the existence of new additives, which can include chemical preservatives, flavorings and thickening agents, records and interviews show.

“We simply do not have the information to vouch for the safety of many of these chemicals,” said Michael Taylor, the FDA’s deputy commissioner for food.

GMOs should be safety tested before they hit the market says AMA

By Monica Eng Tribune reporter

June 19, 2012, 4:12 PM

The American Medical Association called for mandatory pre-market safety testing of genetically engineered foods as part of a revised policy voted on at the AMA's meeting in Chicago Tuesday.

Currently biotech companies are simply encouraged to engage in a voluntary safety consultation with the Food and Drug Administration before releasing a product onto the market.

GMOs, Monsanto’s RoundUp Found in Kellogg’s Froot Loops

All through independent lab testing

by Mike Barrett
Posted on January 30, 2015

Independent DNA lab testing has verified that 100% of the corn in Kellogg’s Froot Loops is genetically modified corn, containing DNA sequences known to be present in insecticide producing Bt and Roundup Ready corn. The soy also contained DNA sequences known to be present in Roundup Ready GMO soy. What’s more, tests documented the presence of glyphosate at 0.12 mg/kg, the main chemical ingredient of Monsanto’s best-selling Roundup weed killer.

Good read. My leader takes on Monsanto for me, you and America's children.

Full Account of Monsanto Shareholder Meeting Jan 30, 2015

Posted by Zen Honeycutt

February 01, 2015

The following account and conversations are conveyed to my best recollection without having listened to the recording. I will do so asap. Those who have listened to it and read my blog say my account is "very accurate".

Scientific studies can be found at www.momsacrossamerica.com/data

The sounds of the boisterous rally crowd faded behind me in the distance as I walked toward building A of Monsanto Headquarters in St. Louis Missouri for the shareholder meeting. The security stationed on the perimeter of the property, without a word between us, relayed my pending arrival to the headquarters, “Ms. Honeycutt approaching building A”. The staff inside also knew me by name and greeted me cordially. After a thorough security check and receiving my “Shareowner” sticker, I was escorted to a conference room where Lisa from SumofUs was also sitting. Why I was being sequestered in a room instead of being brought to the conference room? As if reading my mind, the security person explained that the conference room wasn’t ready yet. Still I thought it odd that I was not able to be in a hallway or near other shareholders.

Several minutes later, a woman walked in and said “I am Zen’s host”, looking right at me. I soon learned that “handler” would have been a better term for her. The staff were prepared. Around 12:50, we were joined by a few other shareholders, (apparently the room really was not ready). There was another “host” for Lisa who made sure to steer the conversation cheerily to where people are from.

Read the rest...

Recording of Monsanto shareholder meeting. It's about three hours.

http://edge.media-server.com/m/p/mojmtw5m

Donations needed.

Often, MAM needs transcription done and I'd like to be able to do this for them.

I'm in need of:

- digital transcription kit that includes the software, and

- a current word processing program.

Thanks.

Geneticist David Suzuki Says Humans “Are Part Of A Massive Experiment”

September 28, 2014

Another prominent public figure, Geneticist David Suzuki has been a long time advocate against GMOs, and has been speaking out about how they can be hazardous to human health as well as the environment. Below, I’ve provided a video example of Suzuki explaining why he feels the way he does about GMOs.

GMO Free USA

GM foods neither safe nor needed, say genetic engineers. The second edition of GMO Myths and Truths, co-authored by genetic engineers Dr. John Fagan and Dr. Michael Antoniou and researcher Claire Robinson, is available as a free online download by the sustainability and science policy platform Earth Open Source (EOS).

“The GMO debate is far from being over, as some GMO proponents claim. Instead the evidence of risk and actual harm from GM foods and crops to health and the environment has grown in the two years since we brought out the first edition. The good news is that GMOs are not needed to feed the world. The report shows that there are far better ways of ensuring a safe and sustainable food supply.”
- Dr. John Fagan

Monsanto just gained approval of its new GE soybean and cotton varieties resistant to Monsanto's dicamba pesticide. This could mean a significant increase in pesticide use, unless the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) puts a strict limit in place.

Please tell the EPA: We’ve had enough! No more pesticides!

Soy Lecithin

Genetically Modified

One of the biggest problems associated with soy lecithin comes from the origin of the soy itself. The majority of soy sources in the world are now genetically modified (GM). Researchers have clearly identified GM foods as a threat to the environment, pollution of soils and a long-term threat to human health with links to of the world with unnatural genetic material that may have unknown long-term consequences with links to decreased fertility, immunological alterations in the gut and the exacerbation and creation of allergies.

Genetically engineered soy contains high concentrations of plant toxicants. The presence of high levels of toxicants in the GM soy represent thousands of plant biochemicals many of which have been shown to have toxic effects on animals.

MONSANTO FORCED TO WITHDRAW UNSUBSTANTIATED ADVERTISING CLAIMS ON BENEFITS OF GM CROPS-ADVERTISING STANDARDS AUTHORITY OF SOUTH AFRICA

Monday, 17 March 2014

Monsanto was given an opportunity by ASA to respond to the ACB’s complaint but was according to the ASA, only able to provide the ASA with links to documents on its website but was unable to provide, as it is required to in terms of South African law governing advertising, inputs from an independent and credible expert confirming the various studies that Monsanto relied upon showing the ostensible benefits of GM crops.

Banned in 160 Nations, Why is This Growth Hormone in U.S. Meat?

by Barbara Minton Posted on January 11, 2015

The fabulous taste of bacon is more popular than ever. But if you are eating conventionally-produced bacon or other pork products, chances are great that you are consuming ractopamine, a livestock growth altering drug so dangerous that 160 countries around the world have banned its use.

Not the U.S. though, where this chemical additive has been given the green light by the FDA, in spite of the fact that it endangers livestock and farm workers as well as consumers.

American wheat is sprayed twice with pesticides/herbicides. Buy organic.

Monsanto at Work on GMO Wheat – Again

By Sara Jennings January 27, 2015

Monsanto’s first stab at introducing Roundup Ready wheat ended in 2004 when the company decided not to seek approval because the market wasn’t ready for it, but in 2013 rogue GMO wheat was found in Oregon, news of which immediately rippled to overseas buyers and caused importing countries including Japan and South Korea to suspend purchases over fears of contamination. The USDA investigation called the Oregon case an isolated incident, however the subsequent discovery of a genetically modified strain in the field of a Montana wheat farmer more or less put the lie to that story. In November of 2014, Monsanto settled the lawsuit brought by farmers in the Pacific Northwest for $2.4 million to cover damages due to the loss of export markets.
