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. Let’s put the debate over the science surrounding the safety of GMOs aside, […]

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. In 2013, the first annual March Against Monsanto took place. It was supposedly in response to the failure of California Proposition […]

Nevada State Lawmaker Thinks Cancer Is A Fungus You Can Flush Out

On a lot of the junk science and conspiracy websites like Collective Evolution or Infowars, there’s a metric ton of articles all telling the gullible people who click on their links that one plant or another would cure cancer – if only it weren’t for pharmaceutical companies hiding these miraculous cures. Now one member of […]

“Food Babe” Hammered by Actual Scientists for Blatantly Fear-Mongering and Misleading Public

I have to admit, I really don’t care much about the GMO vs. anti-GMO debate. The way I look it is both sides have valid points on some levels and both sides often ignore facts when it doesn’t suit their personal feelings on this issue. When it comes right down to it, I’ve known people […]

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 […]

The Left’s Problem With Facts Concerns Me Greatly

From time to time, people will be puzzled when I write articles on science. Trust me, all I have to do is mention GMOs, Monsanto, conspiracy nuts or Food Babe, and I will suddenly be inundated with angry comments wherever my article is posted. Take for example¬†a story I wrote a little while back exposing […]

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 […]
