Will GMOs Kill Us All? – (QED 2016)

November 5, 2016 // 1 Comment

For decades now, we have been told by organisations like Greenpeace, GM-Freeze, and Friends of the Earth that genetical modified (GM) food is dangerous and has been shown to be harmful to humans.They have done a great job at convincing the population of their dangers by quoting scientific literature that claims GM-food has been shown, among other things, to cause cancer, leukaemia, and stomach inflammation; but is there really any truth to this? What do the papers these organisations are [...]

Fact Checking The March Against Monsanto Protesters – Final Thoughts

September 3, 2016 // 0 Comments

Over the past few years, I have been attending March Against Monsanto protests in the UK in an attempt to gain an insight into why so many people are against this one company in particular. It became apparent very early on, whilst attending these protests, that the majority of people in attendance were not there to protest against the agriculture company Monsanto, but instead to protest against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in general. As someone who believes that GMOs have huge [...]

Fact Checking The London March Against Monsanto Protesters – The WHO’s U-Turn on Glyphosate

May 28, 2016 // 1 Comment

It’s that time of year again where people from all walks of life come together in large cities around the world to publicise their ignorance about a technology they oppose, but know very little about. I am, of course, talking about those who attended the rather misleadingly named March Against Monsanto protests this weekend. The reason I say these events have a rather misleading name is because the vast majority of people in attendance are not there to protest against the huge biotechnology [...]

Is Glyphosate “Probably Carcinogenic to Humans” ?

December 3, 2015 // 7 Comments

In May 2015 a body within the World Health Organisation (WHO) called the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared that Glyphosate (the key ingredient in Roundup) was probably carcinogenic. In this video Myles is joined by James, fellow co-host of the podcast The League of Nerds, to critique the findings of the IARC. Original IS GLYPHOSATE PROBABLY CARCINOGENIC? PROBABLY NOT!

To ensure full transparency, show that I have nothing to hide and prove that I’m not taking people out of context, I am going to upload all raw footage of the events I have visited onto a second YouTube channel called MP-Media, and here to my website. Below is the raw footage from the March Against Monsanto protest in London in 2015 [...]

Let’s once more critique some of the more convincing arguments made in a speech given at the March Against Monsanto protest in London earlier this year. This time, let’s fact-check a speech given by Haidee-Laure Giles of War on Want who, like others, was not just there to protest against the agrochemical and agricultural giant Monsanto – but genetic engineering in general.

Fact Checking the London March Against Monsanto Protesters – Liz O’Neill of GM-Freeze

August 24, 2015 // 2 Comments

Earlier in the year, thanks to the wonderful people who have been supporting me thought patreon, I was able to take the train down to London to attend the annual March Against Monsanto (MAM) protest. Over the next few months, I plan to make a series of videos fact-checking some of the statements made by the protesters that allowed me to interview them, and those who gave speeches that day. I wanted to start on a high note with Liz O’Neil from GM-Freeze who, quite frankly, was a cut above the [...]

Fact Checking the London March Against Monsanto Protesters – Liz O’Neill of GM-Freeze

July 21, 2015 // 8 Comments

Edited by Peter Earlier in the year, thanks to the wonderful people who have been supporting me thought patreon, I was able to take the train down to London to attend the annual March Against Monsanto (MAM) protest. The protest took place on Whitehall opposite 10 Downing street, and was attended by around 100-200 protesters, as well as a relatively large number of journalists.  The event itself was poorly organised, and had conflicting information on where the protest was to be held; as well [...]

Fact Checking March Against Monsanto Protesters #3

February 14, 2015 // 0 Comments

I have previously made videos critical of Sue Mallender and Tracey Lloyd, who gave speeches at the March Against Monsanto protest in Nottingham last year. There was no passion behind anything these women said; nor were they able to get the crowd worked up on that particularly wet day. There was, however, one person that day who had done her homework. Someone who was also a speaker but, unlike the other two, had charisma and passion. Her name was Kay Haw and in this video I am going to critique [...]

Myles, once again, talks about one of the speeches he heard whilst attending the March Against Monsanto protest last year. This time he fact-checks a speech given by Sue Mallender who, unlike others, was not only speaking for herself – but on behalf of her political party, The Green Party. Later, he interviews her to ask her some questions about the claims she was making in her speech.

The first in a series of videos fact checking some of the speakers from the March Against Monsanto protest in Nottingham. In this video, Myles discusses a speech given by Tracey Lloyd – who believes that there is independent research out there that proves the dangers of the process of genetic modification. If you would like more information on the events of that day, it was covered in a League of Nerds podcast March Against Monsanto – The League of Nerds Video based on ‘What [...]
