The GMO Threat, Part 1
September 28, 2021
Rampant genetic modification technology poses an existential threat to planet earth and the human race, according to consumer activist Jeffrey M. Smith, author of "Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies About the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods You're Eating" and "Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives." His latest initiative goes beyond glyphosate and Roundup-ready crops; he’s now taking aim at the ill-advised technology that threatens to introduce genetically-modified organisms into our ecosystems, threatening widespread disruption of nature. Altered viruses, bacteria, insects, crops, and fish like the GMO salmon are being developed without regard to the potentially dire consequences. The probable origin of the coronavirus via gain-of-function research highlights the hazards of inadvertent release. Industry has poured dark money into influencing scientists, medical journals, politicians, websites, and the media to downplay the hazards they pose. Smith is spearheading an initiative to get consumers to buy organic, but also to urge legislators to enact regulations to roll back hacking of normal biological evolution. Find out more and view Smith’s latest video, "Don’t Let the Gene Out of the Bottle," at PROTECTNATURENOW.com. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: The Water You Drink, Part 1
September 7, 2021
What you need to know about the water you drink: With all the emphasis on optimal hydration, it’s especially important that we pay attention to, not just the quantity, but the quality of our water. The recent lead debacle in Newark highlights the hazards posed by contaminated water. But there are numerous contaminants in our water, and many are not policed adequately by regulators. Naturopathic physician Tina Beaudoin highlights some of the problems: What is the history of water quality oversight and how is tap water regulated in our country? Are the rules monitored and enforced? How is our water disinfected? What about water fluoridation? What are some of the major contaminants found in drinking water? How do you determine if your water source is safe? What are the different types of water filtration? How can you tell if you have a quality water filter? What about bottled water?
