GMO Labeling and the Free Market

In part two of our investigation into GMO Labeling, we're shifting away from labeling cost questions, and instead looking at big picture economics, particularly focusing on how America's free market has affected the GMO controversy. Let me give you a hint right up front here... it hasn't.

Digging Into the HR 1599 GMO Labeling Legislation

HR 1599, instead of creating a labeling standard that works more hand-in-hand with the laws 3 states have already passed, essentially stomps on them like King Kong stepping on a gumball.

GMO Labeling: DARK Act Rising – GMO Truth Podcast #8

The US House of Representatives passed HR 1599, "The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015", on July 23, 2015. Opponents nicknamed the legislation the DARK Act (Deny Americans the Right to Know), because the act was written to prevent 3 already-passed state...

As I sat down to watch hearing 1 of 2 in the House of Representatives for the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, I felt hopeful that I'd witness a solid display of our elected officials searching for answers on an issue that's been a hot button in states across the country for a few...

Glyphosate – EPA and Monsanto Clash Over a Mouse Study

It seems a little much to think that the EPA would be duped into letting a probable carcinogen slip out in such mass quantity again – that's a big part of why they were created in the first place. Unfortunately, there is reason for concern. Back in March of 1985, an EPA committee classified glyphosate as a Group C oncogen...

Glyphosate — Documenting Glyphosate Concerns

Since the World Health Organization stamped the “probably carcinogenic to humans” label on Monsanto's glyphosate, we've been researching extensively, trying to determine whether or not there truly is cause for concern. In this first phase of our investigation, we cover 5 Potential Problems...

Glyphosate Cancer Studies: Monsanto and the EPA – GMO Truth Podcast #7

Back in 1985, the EPA classified glyphosate as a Class C carcinogen, and back then the C designation meant it was considered a "possible human carcinogen." In 1991, the substance was re-classified under the E class, meaning...

I learned a little something this holiday weekend from a veteran, and I'd really like to share it with you as we all celebrate Memorial Day in the US today. On Saturday I attended the March Against Monsanto in Tempe, AZ. If you're not familiar with the event...

Is Glyphosate Putting Us All At Risk?

Even if you haven't heard of glyphosate yet, chances are you've either used it at home (it's the active ingredient in Roundup weed killer) or you've eaten food that's been grown with a little help from it – from a glyphosate-based herbicide used in Roundup ready crops (GMOs) or as pre-harvest treatment...

5 Potential Problems With Glyphosate – GMO Truth Podcast #6

Thanks to glyphosate hitting the news so much over the past 1.5 months, GMO Truth #6 wound up taking a completely different direction here than originally planned. Substantial Equivalence was set to be the topic, but instead glyphosate takes center stage, since it's been around since 1974 (when Monsanto first released Roundup), and was such an important component in the dawn of GMOs.

Dr. Oz and The GMO Controversy

The GMO Controversy is likely hitting another peak today as Dr. Oz airs a show specifically aimed at defending himself against some harsh critics -- particularly regarding his stance on genetically engineered food. Ten physicians recently lobbied Columbia University to sever all ties with Dr Oz. They said part of their reasoning stemmed from...

GMO UPDATE: The Safe and Accurate Labeling Act Stalls?

It appears that the "Safe and Accurate Labeling Act" is H.R. 1599, which as a bill title should make anyone following the GMO Controversy from any angle laugh out loud by the way (talk about politics), has hit a bit of a snag...

Walk a Mile in a GMO Farmer’s Shoes – GMO Truth Podcast #5

So in GMO TRUTH #5 here, after a quick intro for the first video interview of the project, I then play and discuss the "Drink a Whole Quart of It" video, referring to glyphosate of course. Then we get into the actual interview with Canadian GMO farmer Abe Wiens (although it's important to note, only one of Abe's crops is GMO), and then close with commentary on that interview and what's up next...

GMO Labeling – Do Americans Deserve the Right to Know?

The GMO labeling debate continues to escalate, as more and more states construct their own initiatives, but at the same time, federal legislation is now on the table in the form of the “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act,” introduced by Kansas Rep. Mike Pompeo...

Continue

The GMO Controversy is so full of polarizing viewpoints, distorted facts (both intentional and accidental), and at times just crazy banter, that you absolutely must appreciate moments like this video. Not only is it crystal clear how just ridiculously out of control a propaganda machine can run, but it's also a laugh-out-loud moment...

We're churning out back-to-back-to-back questions here right now with The Walk a Mile Project “Questions-Investigation-Truth” machine, and this next question relates to a pivotal term in the world of GMOs, one way or another, known as Substantial Equivalence...

Monsanto GMO – What’s Our Trust Level for the GMO Pioneers?

Well here it is... the very first moment of truth. There is a segment of the world right now that thinks we have absolutely nothing to see here... that all this talk about any potential dangers of GMO crops is just a bunch of drama.

Monsanto DDT and Why Enlist Duo is NOT Agent Orange

I'll be talking Monsanto DDT here in a minute, but before I before I do... one last note about Agent Orange. Yes, there was most definitely Monsanto behaving badly with Agent Orange, but now we've got people screaming across the alternative media that Agent Orange is back, and in the form of the new Enlist Duo pesticide mixture, which is to be used for some GMO crops...

Monsanto Agent Orange – Another Monsanto Controversy

Monsanto Lawsuits – Monsanto Anniston Trial Takes Its Toll

Yesterday we left off in 1966, with Mississippi State's Professor of Zoology asking the following key question to Monsanto: “Can your people tell us what is going into Snow Creek?" Thankfully 1966 was a big year for people finally starting to ask questions...

Monsanto Controversy – PCBs in Water

As you'll start to notice pretty quickly, you can't talk much about GMOs without also talking about Monsanto. And you've very likely heard some negative press on Monsanto, as they've received their fair share of it over the past few decades...

Why Do We Need to Dig Deeper into GMOs?

Answering this question actually takes us way past our preliminary research and down a rabbit hole that is not a fun place to go, so be warned. There will be a lot of key facts and information thrown your way during this sequence, and it's all just to soundly answer that big WHY question...

GMOs — Why We Need to Dig Deeper — GMO TRUTH PODCAST #2

For the GMO TRUTH PODCAST #2, I talk about an accidental encounter with a "conventional" farmer who grows a GMO crop, and then dive deeply into why we chose the GMO Situation as our first phase and film for The Walk a Mile Project.

GMO TRUTH PODCAST #1: Truth, The Voice of Reason, and The Walk a Mile Project

Here it is, the very first GMO TRUTH PODCAST. Being the first, it's a little dry to start, but stick with it and you'll hear things pick up nicely once it gets going. And I'll make sure we keep it like that going forward. Since this inaugural week is really about introducing people to the project, the whole podcast is...

Literally days after launching The Walk a Mile Project website and running our first Press Release, we received a call with a free Public Service Announcement offer to help get the word out. The spot will run outside Lambeau Field for the final four Green Bay Packers games — at the NFL’s largest tailgating experience. With a reach of around 750,000 people over the next several weeks, and right in America’s heartland no less, it’s a pretty exciting start...
