(NaturalNews) Glyphosate weed killer, heavily used in conjunction with genetically modified crops, is being blamed for a sharp rise in grotesque, horrific animal mutations taking place in Argentina (see horrifying photos below).
(NaturalNews) Some goliaths must fall (like Monsanto), for all the suffering they cause, but other giants can be transformed from the inside out, through a change in heart. That’s what is happening to the top US yogurt producer Dannon.
A hot topic in homesteading these days is backyard hens and the eggs they will produce for you. Many people are so swept up in the excitement that they stop by the local feed store and pick up some adorable fuzzy chicks and starter feed.

So today I am offering some information of how to select the right chicken for you and your climate. This will not be the end … Continue reading Which Kind of Chicken Breed Is Best For Your Backyard Flock?
Many of you reading this are alive today because of antibiotics. It’s a marvel of the modern world that has given us so much life. But because of our abuse of antibiotics and regularly consuming dairy products and eat meat that were given antibiotics, bacteria are growing resistant and causing many of the “last resort” antibiotics to be less powerful than in years past. Inevitably, infections we used to easily treat will evolve and become resistant them. These “superbugs” now threaten to derail decades of medical progress – and no one will be safe in a post-antibiotic world. The Beginning of the End Perhaps, the not-so-distant future … Continue reading Superbug Found In Imported Meat Resistant to All Antibiotics
(NaturalNews) Obviously we want to know when someone is ill-treating animals or not providing them with adequate shelter and food. However when someone who has rescued several animals to protect them from abuse gets accused of animal cruelty himself while … Continue reading NY police steal small farmers’ horses, charge him with ‘cruelty to animals’ in vicious attack on self-sufficiency
(NaturalNews) Pesticides are the food industry’s most lucrative tool, raising profits to amounts that would otherwise be impossible with monoculture.

‘Sustainable’ farm conditions revealed Does ‘sustainable’ farming really mean what you think it does? We’ve all seen the concerning images and videos depicting abused and sickly animals set for sale for the lowest possible price point, but very few have seen inside of a major ‘sustainable’ factory farm that even the USDA says passes its standard of care. A North Carolina contractor for meat processing giant Perdue has now unveiled what truly happens behind these ‘better’ farming operations that we are made to believe are the much better option for ourselves and our families. The result: a very disturbing reminder … Continue reading FACTORY FARM WHISTLEBLOWER UNVEILS DISTURBING VIDEO
Cynthia and Robert Gifford are caught in a same-sex nightmare. They’ve been forced to defend themselves against claims that they’re lesbian-hating homophobes. “We respect and care for everyone!’’ Cynthia Gifford told me. “We had an openly gay man working for us this past season,’’ she said. “We’ve had a woman who’s transitioning to be a man. We don’t discriminate against anyone.’’ But the government of the state of New York sees things differently. The Giffords, who own the bucolic Liberty Ridge Farm in upstate New York, were ordered to pay a total of $13,000 — a $10,000 fine to the … Continue reading Couple fined for refusing to host same-sex wedding on their farm
Image Credits: Jamie Henderson / Flickr While many of us rely on grass-fed beef as a source of healthful, properly raised meat, that option of healthy eating may just move down a peg? Why? Not because cattle may have to switch to GM grain, but rather because cattle may be forced to indulge in genetically modified grass. The Scotts ‘Miracle-Gro’ Company which created genetically modified RoundUp-Ready Kentucky Bluegrass has announced that it will conduct field trials at the homes of Scotts’ employees. What’s more, they can do so without any government oversight because there are no laws that prohibit or limit the planting of … Continue reading KISS YOUR GRASS-FED BEEF GOODBYE! GMO GRASS ABOUT TO BE APPROVED
NaturalNews) Embattled Ukraine, which is currently under siege (practically) by a belligerent Russia, once upon a time used to be called the “Breadbasket of the Soviet Union,” because most of the U.S.S.R.’s food came from there. Even after the U.S.S.R. dissolved, Ukraine continued to be productive agriculturally, though its production of other goods and services, by 1999, had fallen to 40 percent of what the country was producing in 1991, when the breakup took place, according to the CIA World Factbook. But now, while the Ukrainian government faces off against a powerful Russian army, the country’s agricultural production is about to … Continue reading How Monsanto, the World Bank and the IMF are working to force GMOs into a destabilized Ukraine
There are three reasons that Big Ag can’t compete with the small farm in the long-term: ·Research at the land grant universities in the United States is often funded by big agribusiness corporations, but consumers want fresh, organic food-not GMO, chemical-laden, mono-cropped refuse. ·Some of the most promising solutions don’t offer huge cash rewards to agribusiness, so it is possible that some of the most worthy farming practices and innovations are not getting adequately promoted – that is until you visit local businesses and farmer’s market serving up what consumers really want. ·Government interventions of mandates, grants, patent laws, and subsidies can dictate where … Continue reading HOW TO BYPASS MEGA GROCERY CHAINS AND BUY DIRECT FROM ORGANIC FARMS
