Always look for the ‘USDA Organic’ certified seal. And for those who don’t trust the seal itself due to some shady practices, I can recommend you look on the back and see which ‘certifying body’ was responsible for the seal. Oregon Tilth is, generally speaking, at the top tier of organic quality.
The city of Spokane, Washington has filed a lawsuit against Monsanto for allegedly selling chemicals for decades that it knew were harmful to human and environmental health. Marlene Feist, Spokane’s utilities spokeswoman, described the suit as “long-term litigation,” pointing out that the city will spend $300 million to keep PCBs and other pollutants from entering the river in coming years – all of which were caused by Monsanto’s dumping of chemicals via paint, inks, hydraulic fluids, and industrial sealants.

Bt toxins were found in 93% of the women tested and 80% of their unborn babies at the Sherbrooke Hospital in Canada. Glyphosate – found in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Round Up – is being found in people’s blood, urine, and breast milk around the nation
New Zealanders who eat a lot of seafood may be exposing themselves to radiation and putting their health at risk, a study suggests. Researchers found seafood such as mussels, paua and oysters contained concentrated levels of radiation. Those at particular risk were sub-populations for whom fish consumption was culturally important and those relying of fishing and shellfish collection to feed their families.
New evidence from Fukushima shows that as many as 2,000 people have died from necessary evacuations, writes Ian Fairlie, while another 5,000 will die from cancer. Future assessments of fatalities from nuclear disasters must include deaths from displacement-induced ill-heath and suicide in addition to those from direct radiation impacts.
Dr. Ramon Seidler, a retired senior scientist from the US Environmental Protection Agency, has become a leading spokesperson against genetically modified foods and the increasing use of pesticides with GM crops. GM crops literally suffocate the soil. Our soil is full of billions of tiny micro-organisms, and without them, the larger organism – the plant – cannot grow properly. Soil is a complex mixture of these micro-organisms, minerals, rock, fungi, organic matter, and bacteria. If you alter just one aspect of the soil, you alter everything that grows in it.
GM crops are taking important enzymes and minerals out of our soil.

Latest study published at Science Direct: “Potential pathways of pesticide action on erectile function – A contributory factor in male infertility,” the study shows that along with heavy metals, radioactivity, and poisonous fumes of organic chemicals, pesticides are largely contributing to erectile dysfunction and the downfall of male fertility. Of course there are numerous “psychological, physiological, pathological, social, environmental, and nutritional factors.
The Environmental Protection Agency is responsible for a spreading environmental disaster that is threatening crucial waterways throughout the Southwest. The catastrophe has contaminated rivers in Colorado and New Mexico with up to 3 million gallons of orange sludge containing lead, arsenic, cadmium and other toxic metals. One sample showed the lead level an astonishing 12,000 times the acceptable standard – standards set by the EPA. Mercury was 10 times the acceptable level, beryllium and cadmium 33 times, and arsenic 800 times.
The "Frankensteinian genetics" sown into our livestock: Chickens today grow at an extremely unnatural rate. Their legs often cannot keep up with the weight of their bodies and actually collapse underneath them, Faruqi says. "It would be similar to a human being gaining hundreds of pounds in the first couple of months of life."
