Genetically Engineered Soil Microbes: Responsible Agriculture Takes Another Hit

In the era of Big Biotech reign and genetic engineering, the introduction of genetically modified (GE) soil microbes into agriculture raises significant concerns.

WASHINGTON - A groundbreaking legal action today calls on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to immediately suspend and cancel the dangerous herbicide glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup.

Glyphosate's registration is illegal, says the petition filed by Center for Food Safety on behalf of itself, Beyond Pesticides, and four farmworker advocacy groups. Last year, in a lawsuit by the same nonprofits, a federal court of appeals struck down EPA's human health assessment because the agency wrongfully dismissed glyphosate's cancer risk. Today's petition, calling for the cancellation and suspension of glyphosate's registration, runs over 70 pages and includes more than 200 scientific citations

MRNA Vaccines in the Food Supply: What You Can do Now

The emergence of messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) vaccine technology has transformed the medical landscape, like it or not. The technology used to be researched for cancer (with less than positive results), but when the COVID crisis thrust the gene therapy into the infectious disease arena, global, devastating outcomes have spawned concerns and controversy.

Despite the very real human health concerns, like myocarditis, this modified DNA medicine continues to gain traction. Its presence in the food supply has become front and center for those seeking to avoid the gene-altering tech. (It was CONFIRMED, in April of this year, that cattle farmers WILL be using mRNA vaccines in pigs and cows). States are introducing bills to protect informed consumption, while organic and regenerative farms are taking their stance against this technology entering the food supply. What does this mean for your family in the grocery aisles and what can you do to avoid it?

Moms Across America announces the results of testing the top twenty fast food brands, (plus In-N-Out Burger) for minerals, and the top ten fast food brands for Vitamin B’s, and calories.
