    When is a GMO not a GMO?

    More parlor tricks are ahead for your salad. Researchers are working on a more flavorful tomato through gene-isolating technology. This is not the introduction of genes from another species, as was the case with the GMO Flavr-Savr tomato, but neither is it traditional plant breeding. If you are old ...

    GM Corrupts Our DNA Code

    GMOs are part of so-called “synthetic biology,” an attempt to synthesize and change the code of all living things so everything can be bought and sold as a product.

    Genetic Engineering of Transgenic Creatures is Animal Abuse

    Scientists have plans to pen up animals and force them to become sentient machines making proteins for agro-business and organs for humans. Animals are crossed with human genes to create transgenic creatures with organs that won't provoke an immune response so they can be "harvested" and transplante...

    GMOs Spread to Related Crops, including Organic

    The USDA claims that GE crops can “coexist” with organic crops. However, the facts show otherwise. GE is “escaping” and contaminating natural plants. GE mutations can spread to crops in the same family. The Brassica family includes the source plant for canola oil as well as cruciferous veget...

    Outcomes of Genetic Engineering Are Not Predictable

    Genetic engineering outcomes are inherently unpredictable. Credible scientists have proven that genetically altered DNA can be horizontally transmitted—say, from your food to your gut bacteria. And while millions of people worry about what scientists are doing with GMOs in laboratories, a new angl...
