This is one thing that irritates me about the EU (which I’m generally a fan of) — France is apparently not allowed to ban GMOs inside its borders. Rather than say that GMOs are not allowed to be grown there until they are proven safe, France’s highest court decided last week that GMOs were not […]
Yeah, this is the kind of report our government should use to say that BPA is safe, one with four authors who have ties to the chemical industry or companies/groups that help manufacture or promote BPA.
A new Danish epidemiological study may push the European Parliament to place warning labels addressing pregnant women on aspartame. Yet another reason to question artificial sugars.
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.
New study out of the UK finds that organic milk is considerably better for you than non-organic milk, & actually recommends going organic.
These days, living in a global village of sorts, we can easily take for granted the wide variety of foods we have access to and relatively low food prices.

I thought that at least one small continent could remain free of this very unnatural phenomenon. Of course, […]
Germany to Join Other European Countries in Ban Against Monsanto’s Genetically Modified MON 810 Corn
In the European Union, there is only one permissible genetically-modified crop — and that is Monsanto’s MON 810 engineered corn. But current law allows individual countries to bar the production of genetically-modified crops, and the MON 810 ban has been gaining momentum throughout the continent. This is despite the European Union’s continuous fight to force […]
On the table in the European Union yesterday was the question of MON 810 Maize, a genetically-modified type of of corn. Developed by the United States-based Monsato Company, MON 810 releases an insecticide intended to kill European corn borer larvae before the pests can harm the plant. Although the engineered corn is currently approved for […]
