I have been asking #Vegan #Vegetarian #restaurants #Takeout @wholefoods @amazon to switch to sunflower oil instead of toxic roundup ready #gmo canola or Veg oil (roundup ready corn-canola-soy-all gmo ) #Toronto @costcocanada @sobeys @LoblawsON olives drenched with GMO oils ! twitter.com/rareseeds/stat…
"There isn't much evidence to suggest that genetically modified crops are doing better, in terms of food security or nutrition security or income security. In fact on the contrary," said Sulemana Abdullai of @AfricanBiodiv #gmo twitter.com/GMWatch/status…

Monarch butterflies are in trouble. They’ve declined by 90% in the last 20 years. And a key culprit is the massive increase in the use of #glyphosate -- a.k.a. #Monsanto’s Roundup. It’s a simple formula: More Roundup = less milkweed = fewer monarchs gmwatch.org/en/news/latest… #gmo
The cause of the shocking recent rise of autism spectrum disorders has been widely debated in many different circles, and everyone seems to have their theory. Some reports have stated that increased diagnosis and recognition are the biggest and most important reasons for the increased numbers of reported cases, while others point to environmental and health related factors. Longtime MIT scientist Stephanie Seneff for example reported recently that her calculations showed a major correlation between the use of the Roundup (glyphosate) herbicide with autism, a claim that has been hotly debated in the mainstream. At any rate, one thing’s for sure: something fishy is going on, and it may take another few decades to truly get to the bottom of it. Autism Trends on the Rise Since 1930s in Many Unique Ways According to a report from the top autism tracking organization in the country, the California Department of Developmental Services, autism rates have skyrocketed since the 1930s. The following trends were observed after combing through 13 different years of reports from the CDDS: -A gradual creeping upward effect of autism prevalence emerged from “near-zero levels” since around 1940. Interestingly, the post-World War II era brought us chemical-intensive farming over the course of this decade, which may be another correlation point -A more rapid rise was detected in 1980, according to the data. -The rise continued and hit a rapid “change point between 1988 and 1990. While more specific data hasn’t been studied as to why this may have happened, it’s worth noting that a law was passed granting all vaccine makers immunity from lawsuits back in 1986, leading to the current culture of neglect that has taken over the pharmaceutical industry. Could there be a possible connection? -A sustained period of rapid increase was seen in the 1990s, but a brief tapering off was recorded in the early 2000s. Interestingly, the GMO experiment was foisted upon the American people without labeling in the mid-90s, leading to more sprayings of the toxic glyphosate chemical linked to gut bacteria disruption -Another accelerated increase was record in 2006-2007. What Does This Mean for Autism Going Forward? According to recent calculations the autism treatment industry could reach as high as $500 million or more in the next decade. People will be paying out of their you-know-whats in an attempt to fix a problem that we still haven’t figured out as a society. The good news is that many people have seen improvements through holistic doctors’ treatments, cutting GMOs out of their children’s diets and going organic, and detoxing potential damage from vaccines and environmental toxins along the way. While every parent has their own decisions to make, as a society we would do well to investigate many of these potential sources further. Because as the data shows, we clearly have been going backwards, and it just so happens to coincide perfectly with the era of “better living through chemistry” that brought us gene-spliced foods, mercury-laced vaccines and other highly questionable “advances.” You can learn more by reading the full article here.

Monsanto has long been one of the top producers of GMOs, but because these lab created foods aren’t labeled, many people don’t even realize that they’re supporting the oft-voted “Most Evil Company in the World” with each purchase. Supporters of GMOs, whether paid by the Biotech industry or not, point to government safety approvals as evidence that these foods are “safe.” But what they fail to realize is that there’s a long history of scandals preceding the approval and widespread adoptions of GMO food ingredients in the United States, which serve as clues tuning us into the vast conspiracy of the true health effects of these creations. Over the 20+ years that GMOs have been on the market, independent studies have been squashed, journalists have been forced to resign, and newspapers have censored the truth, along our food supply to become corrupted by the very companies that specialize in creating poisons. With that in mind here are the top six historical reasons to avoid GMOs, buy organic and grow organic whenever possible: 1. GMO Potato Exposed in Europe- When scientist Arpad Pustzai discovered several concerning health effects relating to GMOs in Europe, it made front page news, in stark contrast to the United States where uncensored information on the true health effects of these crops is not allowed. Since then the cultivation of these crops has been virtually halted, leading to widspread bans in recent years. The power of the press on full display. 2. George Bush’s Infamous Seven Words- In a visit to Monsanto headquarters prior to the approval of key GMO crops, George H.W. Bush was caught on tape saying “Call me, we’re in the de-reg business” to Monsanto officials. Not long after, Monsanto was able to overcome previously insurmountable safety hurdles to get their crops approved. Decades later, American farm lands are drowning in chemicals from these “Roundup Ready” crops. 3. Warnings from the FDA’s Own Scientists- According to public interest attorney Steve Druker, offer of the hard-hitting investigative book ‘Altered Genes, Twisted Truth,’ the FDA’s own scientists warned about increased allergy risks from GMO foods and crops. Despite that, political collusion allowed these crops to become approved anyway, without any special warnings or labels. 4. Roundup Dangers- Most GMO crops are engineered either to produce a Bt insecticide within the crop, or to be sprayed heavily with Roundup herbicides. Roundup’s main ingredient glyphosate was dubbed a “probable human carcinogen” in 2015 by the IARC of the World Health Organization. 5. Forgotten Studies- Monsanto points to GMO safety studies conducted through labs they have affiliations with, or studies that are done in-house, as proof of GMO safety. But the truth is that there are tons of independent research papers showing the ill effects of GMOs and synthetic pesticides (you can view many of them here). 6. Monsanto and Bayer’s Sordid History- If you haven’t heard yet, Monsanto and Bayer, a new combined company planning to control over 25% of the world’s seeds industry, is the latest GMO giant on the block. But both companies have closets stocked full of skeletons, as you’ll see in this article, including a history of supporting the war efforts in Vietnam and Nazi Germany, respectively. Do these sound like the kind of companies you want making your food? Shop accordingly. Photo via Regenwald.com.
