The World’s Largest GMO and Pesticide Safety study was finally launched by Factor GMO in London, UK on Tuesday. The Global GMO Free Coalition will help fund this largest GMO safety study to date – something that should have been done before GE foods were ever released into the environment.
This study, called Factor GMO, will include three important aspects of measurement to decide if GMOs are truly safe: carcinogenicity, toxicity and multi-generational outcomes. These three important ways of researching GE crops will help experts to determine if Roundup Ready GM maize, and other GM crops grown with glyphosate herbicide are truly safe for public and animal consumption.

On October 22, 1981, the government of the United States of America accumulated an astounding $1 TRILLION in debt.
At that point, it had taken the country 74,984 days (more than 205 years) to accumulate its first trillion in debt.
It would take less than five years to accumulate its second trillion.
And as the US government just hit $18 trillion in debt on Friday afternoon, it has taken a measly 403 days to accumulate its most recent trillion.
WASHINGTON -- It's pretty rare that members of Congress and all the witnesses they've called will declare out loud that Americans are just too ignorant to be given a piece of information, but that was a key conclusion of a session of the House Agriculture Committee this week.
The issue was genetically modified organisms, or GMOs as they're often known in the food industry. And members of the subcommittee on Horticulture, Research, Biotechnology, and Foreign Agriculture, as well as their four experts, agreed that the genetic engineering of food crops has been a thorough success responsible for feeding the hungry, improving nutrition and reducing the use of pesticides.
I live about a half mile from this building. It's smack between our major airport and the Mississippi River. They won't let the reporter get very far in the building even after the reporter had spent over a month getting permission to film inside the building.
The reporter is from our major fox affiliate and got shut down.
What the hell could cost 200 million bucks that we can't know about?
AJ speaks with documentary filmmaker and former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura
Four former Blackwater Worldwide security guards were recently convicted in their roles for the 2007 massacre of 17 Iraqis in Baghdad. And to top it off, “we were paying an equivalent of $1 Million per Blackwater guard," the Governor points out. “Our military men and women are lucky to be making $30,000 to $40,000 a year. And you’re telling me our government paid $1 Billion for 1,000 Blackwater operators?”

SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY, CALIF. | First in an occasional series
On a cool January day in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Steve Ellis culled his sick bees. The only sounds were their steady buzz and the chuffing of the smoker he used to keep them calm as he opened the hives, one by one, to see how many had survived. The painful chore has become an annual ritual for Ellis, and, hardened now like a medic on the front lines, he crowned another box with a big rock to mark it.
“This one is G.A.D.,” he said. “Good as dead.”
I am a beekeeper in SW Minnesota that has been completely wiped out by Clotianidin pesticides used on crop seed treatments.
The EPA has changed it's stance on these dangeous chemicals that kill all insects birds and wildlife. If we don't change we'll all be reaping this disaster for years to come, it may even be too late!

– Rock For Your Rights with Gary Johnson!
So there I was the other night, harvesting my first ever brew of kombucha, when I realized, "I haven't been this excited in years." I mean,I really had no business being that giddy. Later, it had me thinking about my life and the several stages I have been through, and wondered what the future would hold. I started feeling grateful because I was so happy I became "awake" early in life.
I got to thinking about what it ment to be awake and had a hard time figuring it out. Is it simply a perception "shift"? Is it diet related? Is it just a human trate that activates at adulthood?
Or actually in all reality for refusing to follow an unlawful order. Can I ask, what happens to police officers who illegally detain you? Nothing. Not a damned thing. That's whats wrong with this country.
