By: Myles Power Edited by: Peter I recently became aware of an event that took place at the beginning of September called the GM Health Risk Week. This event was held around the UK, and was apparently an opportunity to allow people to examine the “health risks surrounding GM food”. Speakers at the event included Prof Gilles-Eric Séralini (Lead author of the highly discredited Long ...

By: Myles Power Edited by: Peter On 21st August 2013, the nerve agent Sarin was used during the Syrian civil war. Hundreds were killed in the attacks – all of which took place over a short span of time in the disputed areas of the Ghouta suburbs of the Markaz Rif Dimashq district. This was the first time that chemical weapons had been used in the twenty first century and goaded attention ...

The Best ‘GM Health Risk Week’ Can Throw at Us

18 Comments

Edited by: Peter Earlier today, I received an email from one of my subscribers informing me about a seminar he attended organised by GM Free Cymru. The event was part of GM Health Risk Week – a weeklong event held around the UK in which people apparently examined “health risks surrounding GM food”. This is a very strange event to have in the UK considering no GM crops are being ...

By: Myles Power Edited by: Hannah . I am currently in the middle of research for a series of videos critical of the AIDS denialism movie House of Numbers. For my research I have been watching extended interviews with the scientists in the documentary, researching various AIDS denialist organisations and finding out about the people within these groups.

By: Myles Power Edited by: Peter About three weeks ago I was contacted by the Green PolkaDot Box – an organic food company who sells organic food in big green polkadot boxes. Like most organic food companies, they claimed that GM-foods are dangerous to humans. When asked for research that backs up their claims, they sent me a link to a questionable review of the herbicide roundup ...

The Green PolkaDot Box and Cookie Cutter Anti-GMO “Research”

6 Comments

 By: Myles Power Edited by: Peter I recently wrote an article critical of a review sent to me as the ultimate proof that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are dangerous from the anti-GMO food delivery company Green PolkaDot Box. This was after they tweeted me telling me that we need to know the “real dangers” of GMOs. I was curious about what dangers they were referring to, and ...

Roundup Ready Crop and the Green PolkaDot Box

11 Comments

 By: Myles Power Edited by: Peter I recently uploaded a video to YouTube critiquing an american advert asking people to vote yes for proposition 37. For those who don’t know, proposition 37 was the failed attempt calling for the mandatory labelling of all genetically modified food in California. To try and get people to vote yes, the advert mislead the viewer into thinking that GM-food ...

 By: Myles Power Edited by: Peter & Hannah I have recently published an article and video sceptical of the paper ‘Long-term Toxicity of a Roundup Herbicide and a Roundup-Tolerant Genetically Modified Maize‘. This paper claims to have shown a link between genetically modified (GM) maize tolerant to the roundup herbicide and an increased risk of developing tumours. Even ...

SHUKMAN!!! Is at It Again About Synthetic Biology

4 Comments

 By: Myles Power Edited by: Peter . As many of you know, I am not a fan of the BBC’s science editor David SHUKMAN! I have previously written about his lack of scientific understanding concerning synthetic biology and extinction. I have also produced videos where I go into detail about why he is not up for the job and why he should not be reporting on sensitive subjects he knows nothing ...
