(NaturalHealth365) Long-billed as “seeds of hope” and the technological solution to food production and global hunger, the $55 billion genetically modified food industry is finally being seen for what it’s always been: a deceptive, capitalist example of The Emperor’s New Clothes. As popular products of biotechnology are no longer offering the same protection against strains of insects and pests, a growing number of farmers are turning to organic and regenerative methods of agriculture, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) might finally be waking up to the horror of what resistant insects and pests really mean for the future of agriculture.
Chlorpyrifos insecticides were introduced by Dow Chemical in 1965 and have been used widely in agricultural settings. Commonly known as the active ingredient in the brand names Dursban and Lorsban, chlorpyrifos is an organophosphate insecticide, acaricide and miticide used primarily to control foliage and soil-borne insect pests on a variety of food and feed crops. Products come in liquid form as well as granules, powders and water-soluble packets, and may be applied by either ground or aerial equipment.
For children in the U.S., cancer is the leading cause of death from disease. Worldwide, cancer has become so prevalent and devastating that some may use the phrase “like curing cancer” when describing something unfeasible or highly complicated. Yet in September, a team of more than 60 stakeholders and leaders in the health, science, business, policy and advocacy sectors collaborated to take a different, perhaps less flashy approach — preventing cancer, specifically by ending the use of toxic chemicals. Under the umbrella of the Childhood Cancer Prevention Initiative (CCPI), this collection of organizations published a report examining the impact of different cancer-causing chemicals and calling for a “national plan” to address the rising incidence of childhood cancer.

There was a time when the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was supposed to warn Americans about biological and environmental risks from exposure to cell phones and other wireless radiation emitting devices and infrastructure. Unfortunately, the agency was relieved of this duty when they actually wanted to start warning the public about it. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – not a health or environmental agency – took the EPA’s place and has failed miserably to protect the public from the telecom industry ever since (see 1, 2). →
(NaturalHealth365)Lately, many say the government is giving a lot of leeway to the biotech and medical industries, even though it’s yet to be seen whether such drastic steps actually benefit the public good. One example would be the emergency use authorizations given to companies to allow for accelerated testing and manufacturing of COVID-19 treatments and vaccines. Another example is … genetically modified mosquitoes?
Grab your bug repellent. Just last month, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) granted an experimental use permit to a biotech company that will allow them to release lab-made bugs into the wild. The company is backed by Bill Gates through his multi-billion dollar foundation. →
In 2016, Judith Pinborough-Zimmerman, CDC’s Principal Investigator for the Autism Monitoring Network (ADDM) filed a federal whistleblower suit charging that CDC routinely forces its investigators to falsify data to hide the Autism Pandemic. “The autism explosion is an acute embarrassment to CDC so they fix the numbers.” →
Just in case 2020 wasn’t crazy enough, the Environmental Protection Agency recently announced rolled back regulations for companies due to the coronavirus outbreak, paving the way for companies to skirt environmental laws and regulations during this declared crisis. →

(NaturalHealth365)Although the COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t appear to be over yet, many places have effectively “flattened the curve.” And some states have already started to reopen in phases, although most recognize that life won’t return to normal anytime soon. Perhaps one of the big questions on the minds of parents across the nation is this: When can my kids get back to school? And, will spraying our children with a disinfectant be the new “norm?” →
(Naturalhealth365) For millions of people around the globe, sipping a steaming cup of freshly-brewed tea is a relaxing and beneficial ritual. For example, loaded with flavonoids and polyphenols, black, green and herbal teas are known to offer important health benefits. Yet, shocking laboratory research has revealed that your trusty “cuppa tea” might not be so healthy after all. →
