Glyphosate

More Nonsense Published on the Young Turks Channel

May 21, 2018 // 0 Comments

Chemophobia on the Young Turks’ YouTube channel is nothing new, but recently they have outdone themselves when they uploaded a video that would not be out of place on Natural News. The video in question is called ‘Deadly Monsanto Weedkiller Discovered In Popular Beer And Wines’ and is the kind of propaganda that would make even Kim Jong-un blush. What’s worse, and should be very concerning for all Young Turk fans, is that this agrochemical hit piece is the perfect example of native [...]

More Nonsense Published on the Young Turks Channel

May 15, 2018 // 1 Comment

Last year, Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian of the Young Turks published a video reporting on a class action lawsuit filed against Monsanto by people claiming the company failed to warn consumers about the risk of cancer associated with their herbicide, Roundup. As you can imagine, accurately reporting on such a controversial and emotionally charged topic requires a good understanding of the subject, however, the Turks, in their arrogance, believed they were more than qualified to cover the story [...]

Kyle Kulinski: Another Lazy YouTuber

August 12, 2017 // 5 Comments

At this very moment in time, I am sat at a bar in Dubai Airport enjoying a beer, as I wait for what seems like an eternity for my next flight to finally take me home to England. When I was last here, I received a torrent of tweets and Facebook private messages from people asking for my opinion on a recently published Young Turks video titled, ‘Monsanto Giving People Cancer?’ The video hit a nerve with me, as it was a perfect example of everything I have come to loathe about ill-informed [...]

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 [...]

Will Half the Children be Autistic by 2025?

January 4, 2015 // 12 Comments

Forgive me for being so crass, but the best way I can describe the obsession of the natural health community with trying to link everything they find to be ‘unnatural’ with Autism is “same shit, different day.” Every month there seems to be a new piece of research doing the rounds that apparently shows one of these links and spits in the face of scientific consensus. This month is no different. Currently, there is a blog post called “Half of All Children Will Be Autistic by 2025, [...]

Unbelievably Bad Science in the Movie “Seeds of Death”

November 17, 2013 // 40 Comments

By: Myles Power Edited by: Hannah I recently sat down and watched the 2012 anti-GMO documentary “Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs“. The documentary was written, produced and published by Gary Null (an alternative medicine promoter who was once almost killed from one of his own supplements) and claims to expose the dangers of genetically modified foods. It consisted of interviews from apparently “leading” scientists, physicians, professors, attorneys. Most of [...]

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

August 3, 2013 // 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 therefore tweeted the company back, asking to see the peer reviewed data they are basing their [...]
