- ...Our primary concerns have to do with the implications of industrial agriculture involved with the cultivation of most GMO crops.Read Full QuoteHowGood Assessment: GMOsThe first GMO products hit supermarket shelves in 1996, but it wasn’t until the turn of the century that concerns about genetically modified foods skyrocketed. “GMO” became a household term as environmental and consumer rights groups, select scientists, TV personalities, and the mainstream media took up arms against these “unnatural” foods. Genetically modified ingredients are now widespread throughout American food products, though this has remained a polarizing topic.

- Glyphosate is not the problem. It’s a symptom of a much, much larger problem.Read Full QuoteHowGood Research: GlyphosateAcross the U.S., people are engaged in hot debate over the EPA’s release of a draft risk assessment concluding that glyphosate – the most widely-used herbicide and key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup – is non-carcinogenic. The EPA is accepting comments until April 30, 2018, so now is the time to learn and make your opinion known on the topic.
