New study showing DNA in goats fed transgenic, GM soy feed is altered, and the milk is of lower quality, affecting the offspring, baby goats fed on GM soy had DNA fragments that were not supposed to be there, i.e., are not normally found in goat milk, and the immunoglobulin concentration was altered. The colostrum had significantly lower levels of both protein and fat.
WWF and Zoological Society of London: Tuna and mackerel populations suffered a “catastrophic” decline of nearly three quarters in the last 40% years, according to new research, warned that we face losing species critical to human food security, unless drastic action is taken to halt overfishing and other threats to marine life. Bluefin tuna, now on the verge of extinction, yellowtail tuna and albacore, also becoming increasingly scarce.
Arctic sea ice this year reached its fourth lowest level in recorded history, the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) revealed Tuesday.
Duke University-led study found that the coal ash researchers tested were up to 5 times higher than in normal soil, and as much as 10 times higher than the parent coal itself due to the concentration of radioactivity caused by combustion. Coal ash is unregulated, contained in holding ponds and landfills in coal-fired power plants across the nation.
Sea stars along North America’s west coast have been dying at an alarming rate,rampaging through 19 species, hundreds of millions of sea stars have died, changes in the extra cellular matrix and collagen gene. Starting to see a shift in the animal community, increasing rate of diseases.
New contaminants, some more – toxic than ‘traditional’ pollutants like heavy metals, are finding their way into the world’s rivers, lakes, groundwater and drinking water from sources such as artificial sweeteners, nanomaterials, perfumes, medical drugs, hormones, sunscreens, flame retardants, non-stick coatings, pesticide breakdown products, hospital wastes, by-products of detergents, disinfectants and swimming pool cleansers.
Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant on Monday started releasing once-contaminated water into the sea, saying a filtration process has now made it safe.
These are the recorded Radiation Highs around the United States and in your neighborhood. *Listed in Counts per Minute, a Count is One Radioactive Decay Registered by the Instrument. All Radiation Counts reported are partial Counts. Uncounted types of radiation include Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Neutron and X-Ray radiation. Uncounted radiation, if added, makes the actual Count higher and more dangerous.

Floods may pose threat not only to radiation under Fukushima but also structures’ — Severe floods have hit Japan sending tons of radiation-contaminated water from the Fukushima nuclear plant into the ocea confirmed by the facility’s operator Tokyo Electric Power. Authorities have declared the situation an emergency. Enormous amount of radioactivity underneath the plant.
Massive earthquakes, volcanoes, tidal waves, and natural disasters galore—Japan would seem a rather precarious perch for nuclear power plants. Flooding from Tropical Storm Etau, overwhelmed the water pumps at the infamous ruins of Fukushima, washing more radioactive waste into the ocean, another reminder of how fragile Japan’s atomic energy program really is.
A recent study conducted by an international team suggests that if humans burn the currently attainable fossil fuel resources of the Earth, it would be enough to thaw out almost all ice of Antarctica, leading to a 58-meter (190-foot) rise in sea level.
After unearthing a 30,000-year-old virus from the icy wasteland of Siberia, scientists plan to awaken it under the premise of ‘fear that a warming climate will awaken dangerous microscopic pathogens.’
At least 82 large bags filled with radioactive waste from decontamination efforts were washed away when a river overflowed in the Fukushima prefectural village of Iitate.
Researchers analyzed 219 pollen and 53 honey samples from 62 hives, found neonicotinoids in pollen and honey from almost every sample collected, in each and every location.
A U.S. appeals court ruled Thursday federal regulators erred in allowing an insecticide developed by Dow AgroSciences onto the market. Demise of the bees has become a hotly debated topic between agrichemical companies, which say the insecticides they sell are not to blame, and those who say research shows a direct connection between neonicotinoids and large bee die-offs.
