(Natural News) A bioengineer who worked for Monsanto in the past revealed that all kinds of deadly substances accumulated in the GMO potatoes he helped create. Even toxins not found in the food crop appeared in the genetically modified versions.
(Natural News) Decades ago, Australian farmers stopped using glyphosate and other herbicides to get rid of superweeds and seeds in their plots. Instead, they used natural methods of weed control and management that worked much better than toxic chemicals.
Farms in Western Australia raise wheat and barley as the main food crops. The biggest threat comes from ryegrass superweeds that developed resistance to excessively used herbicides.
(Natural News) GMOs and their related chemical pesticides have long been pushed heavily by establishment Republicans. That’s another important reminder why it’s good to never be swept into a political party. Rather, evaluate each candidate based on their principles and actions.
(Natural News) As new studies continue to point to a direct link between the widely-used glyphosate herbicide and various forms of cancer, the agribusiness lobby fights ferociously to ignore or discredit evidence of human and other damage. A second US court jury case just ruled that Monsanto, now a part of the German Bayer AG, must pay $ 81 million in damages to plaintiff Edwin Hardeman who contracted non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer. The ruling and a line-up of another 11,000 pending cases in US courts going after the effects of glyphosate, have hit Bayer AG hard with the company announcing several thousand layoffs as its stock price plunges.

(Natural News) So just how clean is Kosher food? Do we really know what that label means, besides separating milk from meat and excluding shellfish? What about artificial ingredients and GMOs? Big questions. We need answers. From a top list of “featured” brands and companies with the Kosher stamp of approval, we see Listerine, Post, Hunts, Tropicana, Dole, Swiss Miss, and on down to Morning Star, so it’s not too difficult to decipher that the Kosher label doesn’t really account for so many things healthy these day.s

(Natural News) For the second time in a year, a jury has decided that the popular glyphosate weed killer Roundup caused a man’s cancer. The victory could inspire a flood of similar suits in addition to the thousands that Roundup manufacturer Monsanto is already facing, and the firm’s new owner, Bayer, could end up going bankrupt over it.

(Natural News) Sometimes the smallest nations can prove to be the bravest and most progressive in their thinking. Western countries like to believe that they are the most advanced in the world, and they certainly are in some respects, but when it comes to genetically modified crops and avoiding chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides, other countries are leaving the West in their dust…Read more

(Natural News) One of the key goals of Republicans is to limit government, end absurd regulations and set farmers free to generate economic abundance across the nation. In a stunning move led by U.S. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky), the United States Senate has now passed legislation that ends hemp prohibition and would allow farmers across the nation to cultivate hemp.
“The bill would legalize hemp, removing it from the federal list of controlled substances and allowing it to be sold as an agricultural commodity,” reports The Hill.
This is on top of President Trump’s recent announcement that he would work to end marijuana prohibition at the federal level.
Simultaneously, the FDA has just approved the first cannabis-derived prescription drug, made from purified cannabidiol (CBD). Alongside this approval, federal agencies are reportedly on schedule to remove CBD from Schedule I status at the federal level, allowing the CBD pharmaceutical to be legally sold nationwide. (Yes, isn’t it fascinating how interesting the government legalizes something when there’s Big Pharma money at stake…)
