Record US Farmers Switching to Non-GMO Crops in 2015

This is the rising sentiment among farmers of the US as a confluence of factors urges them to become pro-organic. From falling GMO grain prices to a rising tide of public distrust of genetically modified ingredients, failing GMO traits, higher GMO seed prices, and the premium prices that people willingly pay for quality food over toxic junk, the conventional farmer is changing his tune when it comes to Big Ag practices.

Back in May 2013, a former FBI agent went on national television and twice told the American public that "all digital communications" are recorded and retained for posterity by US government agencies. Those comments came just a month before the first Edward Snowden leaks rocked the world. Later that June Glenn Greenwald, the reporter to publish the first of the Snowden leaks, told an audience in Chicago that the NSA collects the content of one billion phone calls per day.

Measles virus circulating in Ontario is a variant previously unknown to WHO

The measles outbreak in Canada’s largest city was already a minor epidemiological puzzle when scientists discovered something that deepened the mystery.

Of the 11 Greater Toronto Area patients diagnosed with the highly contagious illness since the end of January, none are connected to each other in any way that public health staff could discover through interviews with the patients or their parents. None had recently travelled outside Canada to a place where they might have caught the measles.

Public health officials had hoped that genetic analysis of the measles viruses in these cases might shed light on where the Toronto outbreak came from.

Instead, scientists found something new: The version of the measles virus circulating in Ontario is a variant that has never before been reported to the World Health Organization database that contains descriptions of more than 22,000 slightly different viral sequences of the measles virus found across the globe.

Class action lawsuit claims Purina’s Beneful Dog Food is killing dogs

Lucindo filed the lawsuit on February 5. He owns a Labrador Retriever, an English Bulldog, and a German Shepherd. He bought a bag of Beneful for the first time in late December of 2014 or early January 2015 and began feeding it to his dogs exclusively. Soon after that, all his dogs experienced significant health problems, and one died.

According to the lawsuit, the German Shepherd began to lose a large amount of hair and began giving off a unusual odor on Jan. 15. Two days later it became“violently ill.”

A veterinarian who examined the dog determined that it was suffering from internal bleeding in its stomach and the liver was also malfunctioning, which the veterinarian said was “consistent with poisoning.”

Have any readers read about the Italian court’s ruling that vaccines have caused autism? Have you heard about it on your nightly TV news channels? Have you scanned it on your favorite online newspaper? Probably not—but even more so, why not?

Well, there were at least two such autism rulings, the latest being in September 2014. Here is the 8-page official court document written in Italian, signed by Judge Nicola Di Leo. Mary Holland, JD, wrote an article about that ruling, which everyone at the HHS, CDC, FDA and all state and local health agencies should read, know about and, furthermore, accept because vaccines DO cause autism...

Big Pharma Is America’s New Mafia

Pharmaceutical companies have more power than ever, and the American people are paying the price—too often with our lives.

But as physicians, we have very little good information to go on. Even our most prestigious journals publish research based on falsified studies, according to Charles Seife, a journalism professor whose class spent a semester trying to figure out why the data don’t get corrected once research fraud comes to light. “As a result,” Seife writes, “nobody ever finds out which data is bogus, which experiments are tainted, and which drugs might be on the market under false pretenses.”

USGS Confirms Oklahoma Quakes Are Due To Fracking

The debate about the cause of the exponential rise in the frequency of earthquakes in Oklahoma has really heated up in the last year, but as KFOR4 reports, The United States Geological Survey (USGS) appears to have put any doubt firmly to rest. In a strongly-worded press release, the USGS states, "...Large areas of the United States that used to experience few or no earthquakes have, in recent years, experienced a remarkable increase in earthquake activity.. This rise in seismic activity, especially in the central United States, is not the result of natural processes... Instead, the increased seismicity is due to fluid injection associated with new technologies that enable the extraction of oil and gas from previously unproductive reservoirs."

Who needs facts? Associated Press caught in yet another bizarre denial of mercury in vaccines

It seems that even Associated Press writers have been so utterly propagandized by the corrupt vaccine industry that they can't tell truth from lies anymore. An AP story authored by Gosia Wozniacka and published yesterday on Yahoo News repeats an oft-repeated vaccine industry lie, claiming that mercury has been "phased out" of all vaccines.

"The CDC has phased out a mercury-containing preservative in vaccines as a precautionary measure," claims the Associated Press story. Unfortunately, that's simply not true. The claim is utterly false, even according to the CDC itself.

As Natural News has extensively documented in articles like this one, even the CDC openly admits mercury is still used in vaccines. In fact, the CDC vaccine additives page, found here, repeats this admission that mercury is still used in vaccines.

JFK Airport officials filter fecal matter in search for drugs

The federal government is looking for doctors to help monitor suspected smugglers’ bowel movements at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, in a solicitation that sounds like it could be something out of the Discovery Channel’s “Dirty Jobs” program.

In reality it’s all a very sanitary process and even includes a special high-tech toilet to recover the drugs or other contraband from the other waste passing from the suspected smuggler’s system.

But the details, described in a new solicitation for doctors to assist U.S. Customs and Border Protection, underscore the efforts smugglers will go to in trying to get their goods into the country, and the lengths the government will go to try to flush them out.

Fracking: Ohio’s oil-and-gas industry donations, ruling tied?

An Ohio Supreme Court justice lamented last week that “the oil and gas industry has gotten its way” in a decision that says local governments can’t regulate drilling. “What the drilling industry has bought and paid for in campaign contributions they shall receive.”

The dissenting opinion of Justice William M. O’Neill in a fracking case was not without factual basis: Ohio’s oil-and-gas industry poured about $1.4 million into the campaign coffers of legislators and other state officials in 2013-14 — including about $8,000 for the justice who wrote the pro-industry ruling and $7,200 for another who concurred — a Dispatch computer analysis shows.

The Unexpected Implications of Industry Involvement in Trans Fat Research

Schleifer’s article includes a summary of Dr. Fred Kummerow’s lipid research, which is detailed in my previous interview with him (featured above). Dr. Kummerow's work clearly demonstrated that it's not cholesterol that causes heart disease; rather it's the trans fats that are to blame. He was one of the first to make this association, and the first to publish a scientific article on it, in 1957.

Since then, research has repeatedly refuted the correlation between high cholesterol and plaque formation that leads to heart disease. Despite that, the saturated fat/cholesterol myth persisted far longer than seems reasonable, and in my view, industry resistance had an awful lot to do with that.

As a result, tens of thousands of lives have been cut short; the death toll rising with each passing year of inaction.

35 things the media reported as FACTS that were later found to be total lies

Truth is the greatest enemy of the state, and the purpose of the state-run media is to broadcast a sufficient quantity of lies to suffocate the truth and thereby protect state interests.

As Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels once explained:

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

Here are 35 huge lies the mainstream media repeatedly reported as "facts" that we now know to be total lies:

Media Reports That GMO Science Is Settled Are Flat-Out Wrong

In the wake of prominent media reports about supposed scientific agreement on the safety of genetically engineered food, including a cover story in National Geographic that equates concerns about GMOs with climate change denial, U.S. Right to Know is calling on media to accurately report that the science on GMOs is contradictory, unsettled, and has been largely controlled by corporations that profit from GMO seeds and the pesticides that go with them.

“Unfortunately, many members of the media, and even some scientists, have been snookered by PR firms about a supposed scientific consensus on GMOs that doesn’t exist,” said Stacy Malkan, media director of U.S. Right to Know.

Fossil Microbes in Meteors

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As you know, I am partial towards the planet Mars in my astronomy interests, and continue to champion the recognition of Dr. Gilbert Levin as having detected indigenous life on Mars during the Viking missions.

As I ramp my animation business back up to pay my medical bills not covered by my Obamacare compliant health insurance I am working on a small documentary on Mars, during which I did a web search about the fossil microbes seen in a meteorite recovered in Antarctica determined to have originated from the planet Mars. This story briefly made the major news in 1966, then faded.

I was rather surprised to find out that there have been dozens of other papers published detailing separate cases where scientists have discovered microfossils that appear to be biological shapes that do not match anything known here on Earth inside of meteorites, primarily carbonaceous chondrites. Each paper is immediately followed by dismissive articles in the corporate media that ridicule the idea that there is any evidence for life elsewhere in the universe. Usually there is no refutation of the data, only comments like "Rubbish" provided by "authorities" eager to see their name in major media. Needless to say, funding to pursue the question of what these fossilized objects are is almost as rare as funding to study the coming ice age!

At the bottom of my article on Dr. Levin I drew a parallel between Europe's initial suppression of Marco Polo's discoveries in China (to preserve the power and authority of the church) and a very obvious institutional bias within NASA against confirmation of the Viking results. I observed that confirmation of life on other worlds would be a socially transformative event, leading humans to put down their weapons of war and unite together to find out who is out there. This would be a threat to those whose wealth and power rests on the machinery of endless wars.

But in looking at all these papers and all the micrographs, there is enough "smoke" here to wonder if we should not look for the fire, and if confirmation of extraterrestrial life has literally been under our feet all along!

Government spokespersons, media correspondents, celebrities and others are urging everyone, young and old alike, to march down to their local pharmacy and get an MMR vaccine, which they insist will provide protection against the threat of infection.

But is this actually true? Both the safety and efficacy of the MMR vaccine have been called into question on numerous occasions, including late last summer when U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) whistleblower Dr. William Thompson came forward with information about how the MMR had been shown to cause autism in children, and particularly African American children.

Google Chairman on Obsolete Man: ‘The Internet Will Soon Be Part of You’

During a webcast of the panel discussion, Schmidt was asked for a prediction about what he believes is the future of the Internet. “I will answer simply that the Internet will disappear,” he replied.

From Manhattan Project to A.I.: The Coming Synthetic Rewrite of Nature

It is not by accident or organic, “grassroots” trend that numerous films are coming focused on artificial intelligence and the transhumanist takeover. From H.G.

Trash Your Pineal Gland: This Movie Symbol Shows How Society is Programmed for Self-Destruction

It was a subtle and quick moment in the film, but one worthy of pointing out.

Terry Gilliam’s latest The Zero Theorem portrays a near-future society run by scientific materialism, a place where hyper-stimulation through the ever-present telescreens, billboards, targeted advertisements that literally follow you down the street, pop music, signs and other continuous stimuli have created a dumbed-down, consumerist society with little meaning.

Only slightly ahead of where Western culture has already brought us, the film portrays a shallow and narcissistic culture obsessed with smart phones, tablet devices and even new religions based upon pop figures and superheroes (hinted at in references to the Church of Batman the Redeemer, for example).

Shaken Baby Syndrome often just a cover story for children who are brain damaged by vaccines

Child abuse comes in many forms, and can result in serious and permanent health conditions such as Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS), a type of brain damage that typically afflicts children younger than one-year-old. But the cause of such abuse is not always physical trauma as many experts claim -- pediatricians, doctors, and government officials routinely abuse children by injecting them with toxic vaccines, which are often the real cause of SBS and other brain damage-related conditions inappropriately blamed on physical abuse allegedly caused by parents and guardians.

Vaccine horrors: Medical mutilation of innocent children exposed in GRAPHIC photos of "safe" vaccines gone horribly wrong

Much like Brian Williams, vaccine promoters are serial liars. They know vaccines harm many children (and even kill some), yet they knowingly lie to the public by falsely claiming vaccines cause no harm whatsoever. (They do this willfully, in total violation of all medical ethics and fundamental honesty with the public.)

The "Big Lie" about vaccine safety is crumbling by the day, of course, causing the vaccine industry to resort to desperate tactics such as attempting to declare absolute government control over your body via a medical police state that forces you to submit to medical interventions.

Alberta tar sands pollution suspected in rare cancer cases

In 2006, Canadian doctor John O’Connor made a startling realization. Specialists had diagnosed three of his patients in the northern Alberta village of Fort Chipewyan with cholangiocarcinoma — a deadly cancer of the bile duct. The same cancer had killed his own father years earlier in Ireland.

Only about one in 100,000 Canadians contracts this type of cancer, so the likelihood of three cases in a town of about 950 was minuscule. O’Connor suspected pollution from Alberta’s tar sands, 100 miles upstream from Fort Chipewyan on the Athabasca River. Since then, the provincial government, while confirming an additional case of bile duct cancer and high rates of lung and cervical cancer, has yet to investigate further.

NASA: Fireball Brighter than Full Moon over NY, Penn. Ohio… Video

A bright meteor lit up skies over the American states of New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania this week, burning up in the atmosphere in a flare brighter than the full moon.

“A space rock about 60cm in diameter and weighing over 200kg entered Earth’s atmosphere above western Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh, where NASA cameras detected it early Tuesday morning local time at an altitude of 100km.

“The meteor moved due east at a speed of almost 73,000kph, before cameras lost track of it at an altitude of 20km above the town of Kittanning, “NASA said.

NASA said there might be fragments of the meteor, or meteorites, scattered on the ground east of the town.

DARPA implant could give people Terminator-like vision

Leave it to the US Defense Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to create something that makes smart glasses and augmented reality headsets seem passé: the team behind some of the military’s most cutting edge technology is creating implants that can give people Terminator vision. According to CNET, the DARPA boffins are reportedly working on a device known as a ‘cortical modem’ that plugs directly into a person’s DNA and visual cortex. Not only does this unique device help someone overcome blindness or poor eyesight, it generates a built-in heads-up display (HUD) that appears right in before their very eyes.

White House Overhypes Obamacare Enrollment, Again

Yesterday evening, not long after the official (but not actual) end of Obamacare’s open enrollment period, the White House Twitter feed posted some breaking news: “About 11.4 million Americans are signed up for private health coverage,” the tweet said, posting the information with the hashtag #ACAWorks.

It is in some ways remarkable that the White House can provide this information so quickly. Not because the information should be hard to collect, but because other similar information often eludes the administration.

As Bloomberg News health care reporter Alex Wayne noted on Twitter earlier today during a Q&A session with Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Matthews Burwell, the administration "still can’t tell us how many people were enrolled in Obamacare at the end of 2014."

The big measles lie: Eradication of measles happened BEFORE the vaccine, not after

A graph compiled from official data on mortality rates in the U.S. dating back to the late 19th century reveals a downward mortality trend in nearly all disease categories prior to vaccine introduction. In the case of both measles and whooping cough, deaths were already near zero at the time the vaccines were introduced. And when the diphtheria vaccine was introduced in 1920, the mortality rate actually spiked for several years before continuing its downward trajectory.

Homeland Security Stockpiling Billions of Dollars of Experimental Vaccines

The U.S. Government has guaranteed a thriving U.S. vaccine market for pharmaceutical companies by purchasing billions of dollars worth of vaccines every year with U.S. taxpayer dollars.

As we have previously reported, the CDC (U.S. Government Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) is the largest purchaser of vaccines in the U.S., spending over $4 billion annually to purchase vaccines that are approved by the FDA. Since the CDC is the government agency responsible for overseeing vaccine safety, this creates a huge conflict of interest.

EXCLUSIVE: Statins expert calls for safety checks over the drug

Prof Rory Collins, whose research helped rubber stamp statins as safe, said his team will carry out a “challenging” reassessment of the evidence which will include studying all reported side effects.

Although the original research looked at the effect of statins on the heart and considered cancer risks it did not examine other side effects.

Separate studies and patient complaints have included muscle pain, cataracts, diabetes, fatigue and memory loss. Dr Collins, who championed the controversial drug, said the additional work was needed to convince the public that statins were safe.

The vaccine establishment has a horrible conundrum. It desperately wants everyone to voluntarily buy its for-profit vaccine products, but it has failed to convince everyone that its products are safe and effective... or even necessary in many cases.

The problem is made even worse by the fact that the products themselves really aren't as safe and effective as we've all been told. Flu shots still contain mercury, a neurotoxic heavy metal. Some vaccine inserts still admit they are backed by no clinical trials. The U.S. government really has quietly paid out nearly $3 billion in compensation awards to families of children who were irrefutably damaged by vaccines. A top CDC scientist really did confess to taking part in scientific fraud at the CDC, covering up data linking vaccines to autism.

snip: Today, there’s little room for indiscretions, imperfections, or acts of independence—especially not when the government can listen in on your phone calls, monitor your driving habits, track your movements, scrutinize your purchases and peer through the walls of your home. That’s because technology—specifically the technology employed by the government against the American citizenry—has upped the stakes dramatically so that there’s little we do that is not known by the government.

In such an environment, you’re either a paragon of virtue, or you’re a criminal.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, we’re all criminals. This is the creepy, calculating yet diabolical genius of the American police state: the very technology we hailed as revolutionary and liberating has become our prison, jailer, probation officer, Big Brother and Father Knows Best all rolled into one.

“Mass Sterilization”: Kenyan Doctors Find Anti-fertility Agent in UN Tetanus Vaccine

The Kenyan government denies there is anything wrong with the vaccine, and says it is perfectly safe.

The Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, however, saw evidence to the contrary, and had six different samples of the tetanus vaccine from various locations around Kenya sent to an independent laboratory in South Africa for testing.

The mysterious giant clouds spotted on Mars: Scientists left baffled by 150-mile high plumes coming off the red planet

The phenomenon was observed on March 12, 2012 over the 'terminator', which is the boundary between day and night on Mars.

A second was spotted nearby on April 6, 2012, and lasted about 10 days.

'At about 155 miles (250 km), the division between the atmosphere and outer space is very thin, so the reported plumes are extremely unexpected,' says Agustin Sanchez-Lavega of the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, Spain, who led the study.

FLASHBACK - Water on Mars: Exploration & Evidence

/IMAGES/090310-phoenix-globs-02.jpg
Images of one of Phoenix's struts taken by the lander's robotic arm camera on Sols (or Martian days) 8, 31 and 44 of th emission. The two spheroids enclosed by the circle appear to merge with each other, which some Phoenix scientists argue is a sign that the globs are liquid water.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For decades, ever since the first Mariner showed the surface of Mars to be cratered like the Moon, NASA has declared Mars to be dead and dry, claiming that liquid water could not survive on the surface of Mars in such low atmospheric pressure. And it is true that pure water would boil off rather quickly.

But where on Earth does one find pure water? It just does not occur in nature.

Some years back, I and many others pointed out that one of the photos from the Mars Rover Spirit showed what looked to be liquid water on the surface.



NASA's response was that it had to be a "dust effect" because they KNEW that water could not survive in the open on Mars. But now scientists are acknowledging that sufficiently salty water will remain liquid at Martian temperatures.

Reminds me of a story I have told before, but you are going to get it again anyway. No, not the Viking Life Sciences fiasco, this story goes back further, to my High School Days in which I won a small scholarship with a project studying Tektites.



Tektites are small glass objects found around the world. They clearly have come from outer space, melted by their passage through the Earth's atmosphere, and because they show almost no evidence of long-term interactions with cosmic rays, that made the Moon the likely origin. I was already getting involved with the people up at JPL and availed myself of some of their laboratory equipment to analyze samples of Tektites, which I wound contained minute amounts of water. However, this was during the Apollo Mon flights and NASA had stated that the lunar samples returned by Apollo were totally anhydrous. On the basis of that mismatch, I was forced to conclude that wherever Tektites came from, it wasn't the Moon.

Fast forward about four decades, and scientists studying the Apollo rocks find water inside, held against the vacuum of space by capillary action. NASA then admits that their initial analysis of the Apollo samples did detect water (in the same percentage my analysis of Tektites had found) , but it was assumed (and we know what that means) to be a laboratory contaminant, because everyone at NASA KNEW the Moon could not hold water.

You can see why I have little regard for the official version of anything these days, especially from NASA! :)

Not all experts in the field, however, were persuaded by the ‘evidence’ that animal fats were the problem. As early as 1977 Dr George Mann, in the New England Journal of Medicine, described the cholesterol myth as ‘the greatest scam in the history of medicine’. In 1997, a massive trial of 350,000 men at high risk of heart disease found that drastically cutting down their cholesterol and saturated fat consumption did not improve their survival prospects. Worse, according to an earlier study in Finland, men who continued to follow a low-saturated-fat diet were twice as likely to die of heart disease as those who didn’t. In fact no trial has ever demonstrated the benefits of reducing dietary fat.

Mann, of course, was ridiculed and marginalised for his outrageous rejection of the Consensus.

Does any of the scenario I’ve just outlined above sound at all familiar?

WHY A FAKE ARTICLE TITLED "CUCKOO FOR COCOA PUFFS?" WAS ACCEPTED BY 17 MEDICAL JOURNALS

As a medical researcher at Harvard, Mark Shrime gets a very special kind of spam in his inbox: every day, he receives at least one request from an open-access medical journal promising to publish his research if he would only pay $500.

Vaccine Induced Immune Overload and the Epidemic of Chronic Autoimmune Childhood Disease By Dr. Gary G. Kohls

snips: The list of autoimmune disorders considered in this article includes such increasingly common chronic illnesses as type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, nonalcoholic fatty liver (= NASH = nonalcoholic steatohepatitis), autism spectrum disorders, asthma, food allergies, a variety of organ-specific autoimmune disorders (such as thyroiditis, vasculitis and autoimmune rheumatic diseases like SLE (lupus), rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and sarcoid), and metabolic syndrome (= obesity, type 2 diabetes/insulin resistance, hypertension, and dyslipidemia)[...] There has been an epidemic of inflammatory diseases that has paralleled the epidemic of iatrogenic immune stimulation with vaccines. The epidemic of diabetes/pre-diabetes appears to be accelerating at a time when the prevalence of obesity has stabilized, indicating that the negative feedback system of the immune system has been over-whelmed.

Fake Disney measles outbreak: send in the clowns

Jon Rappoport
Activist Post

“Lacking any real science proving we have a serious 2015 measles outbreak, and lacking any science supporting the idea that the measles vaccine is safe and effective, we’re looking at a psyop called The Disney Story. A fake horror movie happening at ‘the happiest place on Earth,’ Disneyland. It’s a perfect way to scare the moms into vaccinating their kiddies. If the happiest place on Earth isn’t safe, then where is safety? ‘Mickey Mouse infects children.’ Cue the ominous music. ‘Cotton candy dream turns into nightmare.’ ‘Send in the clowns, carriers of the virus.’” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

150 measles cases. No deaths.

Dangerous outbreak? Are you kidding?...

Sorry Monsanto: Organic Food Demand is Absolutely Exploding

You can attribute this change in market demand to education. You can attribute it to the mass awakening happening around the planet. But either way, you can’t argue with the numbers. Eating organic is no longer ‘fringe’ or something done solely by health-nuts and athletes, hippies, and paranoids. In fact, consumer demand for organic food is seeing double digit growth year over year, and it doesn’t show signs of stopping.

Smart Meters: What Consumers Can Do To Get Them Removed

Catherine J. Frompovich
Activist Post

There are serious issues regarding electromagnetic energy technology known as ‘Smart Meters’. So, if SMs can communicate information out of your house, what is it sending and to whom, especially if it’s transmitted via microwaves? Hopefully—or, is it only theory—that moment-by-moment surveillance data cannot be intercepted by anyone, including burglars or other identity thieving individuals. Regardless, there are serious doubts about that information’s security and risks. Moreover, there are dubious and rightful concerns that the information generated within every ‘smart-metered’-home is being sold to special interest commodity producers as ‘leads’ for their merchandising campaigns!

But, the most egregious of all problems with ‘smart meters’ is the apparent adverse health effects from the electromagnetic radiation they send into personal homes...

Flashback: Merck Created Hit List to "Destroy," "Neutralize" or "Discredit" Dissenting Doctors

The allegations come on the heels of revelations that Merck created a fake medical journal -- the Australasian Journal of Bone and Joint Medicine -- in which to publish studies about Vioxx; had pop songs commissioned about Vioxx to inspire its staff, and paid ghostwriters to draft articles about the drug.

Top anti-GMO scientists band together in film exposing threats and secrecy


"Árpád Pusztai and Ignacio Chapela have two things in common. They are distinguished scientists, and their careers lie in ruins. Both chose to investigate the phenomenon of genetic engineering. Both made important discoveries. Both are now suffering the fate of those who criticise the powerful vested interests that dominate big business and scientific research. Statements made by scientists themselves suggest that 95% of those researching in the area of genetic engineering are funded by industry. Only 5% are independent. This situation presents a major threat to the freedom of science – and to our democracy. Can we, the public, still trust our scientists?"

Schools Start Treating E-Cigarettes as Drug Paraphernalia

Some schools are getting tougher on e-cigarettes, even punishing possession of the devices more harshly than regular cigarettes. The devices, which heat a nicotine solution to create a vapor instead of burning tobacco, have passed traditional smokes in popularity among teenagers. Schools are clamping down because e-cigarettes, sometimes also known as vaporizers, can also be used for illegal substances like marijuana.

GMOs found growing in South Korea despite national ban

More unapproved -- and in some cases, unidentifiable -- genetically modified (GM) plants are turning up in places where they shouldn't be. South Korea, which currently prohibits the cultivation of all GM crops anywhere in the country, is becoming beleaguered with wild GMO strains, according to new reports.

The transgenic plants are popping up all along seed delivery routes, near animal feeding operations and in various other locations throughout the country, threatening to disrupt local ecosystems. Despite a nationwide ban on their cultivation, GMOs are still making their way into South Korea in the form of feed for cattle, which is falling off the wagon -- quite literally -- and spreading genetic pollution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Or it is intentional contamination to force South Korea to abandon the ban.

GMOs invade fruit industry: Apples, pears, cherries and peaches to all become unlabeled GMO

Genetically modified apples have been approved by the industry-corrupted USDA, a federal regulator that accomplishes for the biotech industry the same thing the FDA achieves for Big Pharma: unlimited profits, lax regulation and a ready willingness to accept fabricated "science" as fact.

"The USDA's environmental review received 73,000 comments that overwhelmingly opposed the commercialization of Arctic Apples," explains a press release from Food & Water Watch. [1]

Teenage astronomer aims for the stars

Jonah Scott still remembers the moment he fell in love with space.

"I got my first telescope when I was 15," he said.

"I took it outside and thought I'd look at all the brightest stars I could see.

"I focused on one star and I couldn't quite make out why it was different. All the other stars were dots, but it wasn't.

"And then it dawned on me that the reason it wasn't a dot was it had rings around it."

It was the planet Saturn.

"I never knew that I could see Saturn's rings with my own eyes," Jonah said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I was a kid, using your eyes was the ONLY way to see it. How times have changed. When Claire and I still lived in North Hollywood, I had a couple large telescopes, and we used to hold star parties for the neighborhood kids. And I remember this one little girl looking through the telescope, at Saturn, who said, "You mean you can see it up in the sky?!?"

Doctor “removed 6 thyroids in recent months” from USS Reagan crew exposed to Fukushima fallout

“There are individuals out there who are in very similar situations to myself… progressive muscle weakness that starts in their legs and starts to ascend. There are individuals out there who have developed different forms of cancer, leukemia, children of service members born with birth defects because of their service over there… A lot of these other individuals who are suffering [didn't] get a medical retirement… All too often, we’ve — each and every one of us — have run into doctors at some point who try to play it off that there’s nothing physically wrong us, and it’s all psychological.

Sorry Monsanto: Organic Food Demand is Absolutely Exploding

Perhaps you remember a time not too far in our collective grocery-shopping past when regular grocery stores chains and places like Walmart had no idea what organic food was. Organic milk? Bread? Produce? They didn’t carry it. You had to find an obscure health food store or a farmer’s market if you didn’t live near a Whole Foods to find non-GMO, healthful food that wasn’t full of pesticides. But thankfully, consumers are demanding different products now. Demand for organic food has busted through its glass ceiling.

You can attribute this change in market demand to education. You can attribute it to the mass awakening happening around the planet. But either way, you can’t argue with the numbers. Eating organic is no longer ‘fringe’ or something done solely by health-nuts and athletes, hippies, and paranoids. In fact, consumer demand for organic food is seeing double digit growth year over year, and it doesn’t show signs of stopping.

Why Global Warming Is A Scam Perfectly Illustrated With One Cartoon

CO2, despite being a minor element of the Earth’s atmosphere, is essential for all life on Earth because it is the food that nourishes all vegetation. The Earth has passed through many periods of high levels of CO2 and many cycles of warming and cooling that are part of the life of the planet.
