Scientists, activists and consumers who question industrial agricultural practices and the safety of GMOs have been described as anti-science. But if you look at the effect industrial agriculture and GMOs have had on the planet, it’s obvious there is a total disregard for soil and environmental science.

Did you know? The FDA is proposing a new regulation that could shutter the doors of your favorite artisanal food producers. The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) would put extra financial and regulatory burdens on small farmers. It’s time to TAKE ACTION! Submit a public comment to the FDA urging regulators to amend and exempt ALL producers that make less than $500,000 a year in sales, and who also sell most of their food locally: http://orgcns.org/1IpKO7A

Monsanto can't hide the fact that Roundup causes cancer. Or the fact that the world doesn’t want Monsanto's toxic chemical-drenched, soil-depleting crops. It’s taken us years. But the momentum against Monsanto is at an all-time high. Learn how you can help us take Monsanto down: http://orgcns.org/1FySgpD

The FDA could approve GMO salmon any day now, despite the 1.8 million comments from the public and from scientists who warn of the environmental and health risks posed by this “frankenfish.” More than 60 retailers have agreed not to sell GMO salmon. It’s time to get Costco on board. TAKE ACTION! Tell Costco: Please Don’t Sell GMO Salmon, Ever: http://orgcns.org/1EYSA0H

I grew up in Nebraska. Driving past factory farms seemed normal. The brown, barren land with way more cattle than the land can sustain. Knowing what I know now, it makes me sad to drive past them. It's so clear they are unhealthy for the environment, the animals and our health.

Sad, that the judge would not consider the health impacts! Sad but not surprising!
"While the judge directed attorneys to focus only on impacts to physical property, it’s hard to ignore the health effects of pesticides drifting through the air or contained in dust blanketing homes. "

Monsanto International published a paper in 2010 touting the application of Roundup to kill crops right before harvest, in order to dry out the crops in advance and produce a more uniform and earlier harvest (starting on page 28): http://www.monsanto.com/products/documents/glyphosate-background-materials/agronomic%20benefits%20of%20glyphosate%20in%20europe.pdf
