Genetically modified (GM) foods are inherently unsafe

By Jeffrey M. Smith Institute for Responsible Technology January 3, 2014 Genetically modified (GM) foods are inherently unsafe, and current safety assessments are not competent to protect us from or even identify most dangers. Overwhelming evidence to support this conclusion is now compiled in the book Genetic Roulette: The documented health risks of genetically engineered foods, which presents an abundance of adverse findings and theoretical risks associated with GM ...Read full article...

Informed People Survive, Misinformed People Perish

Ignored Reality Is Going To Wipe Out The Human Race To inform people is hard slugging.  Everything is lined up against the public being informed, or the policymakers for that matter. News is contaminated by its service to special interests and hidden agendas. Many scientists or their employers are dependent on federal money. Even psychologists and anthropologists were roped into the government’s torture and occupation programs. Economists tell lies ...Read full article...
