March 23rd, 2012 | by Becky Striepe

When you think about the kitchen you probably imagine putting together tasty meals, sitting around the kitchen table, or maybe fixing a hot cup of tea or coffee. The kitchen is all about food and family, but did you know that the kitchen also uses about half of the energy in your home


Is Whole Foods Market in Bed with Monsanto?

February 3rd, 2012 | by Jessi Stafford

Whole Foods and other companies from the Organic Elite no longer oppose the mass commercialization of GE crops, such as Monsanto's controversial Roundup Ready alfalfa, and are prepared to sit down and cut a deal for "coexistence" with Monsanto and USDA biotech cheerleader Tom Vilsack


Non-GMO Month & New GMO Report

October 3rd, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

Heather mentioned on Saturday that October is Non-GMO month and she has pledged to not eat GMOs (or processed foods) for the whole month. Good luck to you, Heather! The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) is participating in Non-GMO month too, of course. It had a great intro to the month, that first starts with some highlights (and lowlights) of the year so far and then predicts how October is going to change things up. Also, Food & Water Watch has just released a big report on GMOs

When you let the GMO industry police itself and evaluate the safety of its own products, you are bound to get something different than if you had (or let) independent scientists do so.

European Countries May Soon Not Be Able to Ban GMOs

March 29th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

I felt tremendously disheartened and somewhat shocked last year when I reported on the European Commission's approval of BASF's GM Amflora potato (aka the ‘Frankentstein potato’), the first authorization of a GM crop in 12 years and the second overall


Monsanto GM Sugar Beets (and Alfalfa) Approval: Why This is Bad News

February 7th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

We have a great post going up tomorrow morning on the USDA's recent approval of Monsanto's genetically modified (GM) -- "genetically engineered" ("GE") if you live in Europe -- sugar beets and GM alfalfa from Ken Roseboro, editor of The Organic & Non-GMO Report. It will cover health concerns (based on scientific studies), environmental concerns, legal concerns, considerable threats to organic farmers and consumers, and the USDA's decision to ignore public concerns and comments from hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens. But I wanted to chime in on this with a few comments of my own.
