Seralini-study-defamation

by PAUL FASSA Remember Professor Giles-Eric Seralini and his research team at the University of Caan in France? They provided pictures of rats fed Monsanto GMO corn saturated with Roundup weed killer. That’s why the corn is genetically modified, to survive the most dangerous herbicide on the planet. Their study discovered that rats fed GMOs developed tumors and died prematurely. But that wasn’t the purpose of their study. It was set up to examine the … MORE

Russia, France Shun GMOs; U.S. Media Remains Silent

Victory! World’s Largest Nation Bans GMO Food Crops

Back in September, France followed in the steps of other European Union nations– Scotland, Germany, Latvia and Greece– and revealed an opt-out from growing GM crops. The nation asked the European Commission to exclude its nationwide territory from the release of 9 GM maize varieties currently authorized (1 GM Maize range– MON9810) or waiting for authorization by the EU. France had actually already prohibited cultivation of Monsanto’s GM maize, saying it had severe doubts that … MORE

Why You Should Stop Drinking Milk

Let’s keep in mind that humans are not designed to drink milk. We are the only animals that continue to drink milk after infancy. What’s even weirder is that we drink a different animal’s milk. Do we see cats drinking a goat’s milk? No. Kittens (and all other animals) only drink their own milk. We’ve been taught to drink milk because it’s healthy. Well, turns out it’s not so healthy after all. Here are four … MORE

The reality of … MORE

Octopus Brains Are So Much Cooler Than You Think

Let’s clear up one thing right off the bat: “Octopuses” is a perfectly acceptable plural of “octopus”—and it makes a heck of a lot more sense than “octopi.” That’s because the word derives from Greek (oktopous, meaning “eight feet”), not Latin. This week’s episode of the Inquiring Minds podcast is all about octopuses, specifically how these amazing cephalopods—the group of marine invertebrates that also includes squid and cuttlefish—are vastly more intelligent than they get credit … MORE
