The anti-GMO crowd is a danger to progress

By all accounts, the lies and misinformation spread by the anti-GMO activists in California will win out. Proposition 37 will coast to victory. That is a sad state of affairs for progress. I don't want to paint a doom and gloom picture, but an anti-GMO win in California could have repercussions as to how people view bio-technology.  By tying it t…

Natural Products Association opposes Prop. 37

With all the finger-pointing at the groups who oppose Prop. 37, one group seems to have escaped the wrath of the anti-GMO crowd, The Natural Products Association (NPA). The NPA is the trade and lobbying group for makers of natural products. They have come out against the law.  They state they like the idea of the law, but have a problem with the …

Everybody Panic: GMOs and vaccines are the new Zyklon B

"If Hitler had GMO technology, he would have fed GM corn to the Jews and not even bothered with the trouble of constructing gas chambers.

Another flawed GMO study, again

Gilles-Eric Seralini is back in the news again. He's released yet another study that shows Monsanto's Bt corn causes tumors and multiple organ damage. Seralini has done this study twice before and both times they were discredited as majorly flawed. The reactions to this one has met with the same reactions. The big question many are asking about …

Biggest donor to Prop 37 in trouble with the FDA over misleading claims

I've written on this blog before about internet quack Dr. Mercola who hawks questionable supplements on his website. He is for labeling of GMOs but not his products. He spreads disinformation about GMOs and is the biggest donor to the GMO labeling law in California. He also has trouble with the FDA who have sent him several cease and desist let…

“Natural” health supplements pose bigger real world dangers than GMOs

Back in July, I wrote about how the biggest contributor to the label GMOs law, Dr. Mercola is a health supplement maker who is against labeling of his products. In the September issue of Consumer Reports, they publish an article which points out the dangers that supplements could pose to human health: 10 surprising dangers of vitamins and supplemen…
