March Against Monsanto Promotes Curing Autism In Children With Bleach Enemas – Seriously

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been a critic of the anti-GMO movement. Laced in with conspiracies about corporations trying to poison their customers, groups like March Against Monsanto have collected a ton of followers and staged rallies around the world.

Dr. Ben Carson And Dr. Oz Are More Alike Than You Think

As Dr. Ben Carson has risen in the Republican polls, he’s made a series of increasingly bizarre statements. In Pennsylvania, he’s tied with billionaire Donald Trump and trails him by five points in Iowa. Carly Fiorina has also cut into Trump’s lead, based on strong appearances in her first two debates. The popularity of the […]

Vermont Governor Signs Law Eliminating Vaccination Exemption Loophole

The pendulum is slowly but surely beginning to swing back against the anti-vaccine movement. Last Thursday, Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin signed a bill which removes the philosophical exemptions loophole in the state’s vaccination laws. In California, a law (SB 277) is working its way through the State Assembly that would also remove the ability for […]

California Senate Passes Bill Ending “Personal Beliefs” Vaccines Loophole

Vaccines do not cause autism. Repeat after me, vaccines DO NOT cause autism. We’ve been over this time and time again, but there are still people out there who take the advice of D-list celebrities and a discredited British doctor¬†over the overwhelming consensus of the medical and scientific communities. Yet, there are still states here […]

6 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Monsanto

Seed manufacturer Monsanto Company has been the target of a lot of criticism over the past few years, including a couple of articles that I wrote when I first started writing for Forward Progressives.

Now one member of […]

Dear Anti-GMO Activists, Keep Your Stupid Labels Off My Food (VIDEO)

I’ve often said that the opposition to genetically modified food ingredients is the left’s version of climate change denialism. This year both in Oregon and Hawaii (two pretty solidly liberal states) – as well as Colorado – there are measures on the ballot that fly in the face of science, and head straight on down […]

Why Are Liberals Denying Science When It Comes To GMOs?

One of the most infuriating things about dealing with some people on the left is their rejection or mistrust of science. Sure, we like to point and laugh when politicians like Bobby Jindal call the Obama administration “science deniers” – especially when Jindal has a degree in science and we know he’s just catering to […]

What Do “Food Babe” And Fox News Have In Common?

If you haven’t heard of her by now, there is this woman named Vani Hari who goes by the alias “Food Babe” who has become infamous for her attacks on a number of food companies, including Subway and, most recently, Starbucks. In this latest attack, she has sent thousands of her fans, known as the […]

Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson And The Left’s Problem With Science

Earlier this week Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson told people to “chill out” about GMOs, and as a result, a lot of people got really upset with their science hero¬†for not catering to their inability to understand science.
