March Against Monsanto Rally – Los Angeles

On Saturday, May 23, 2015 hundreds of Angelenos gathered to stage a rally and march to protest genetically modified foods (GMOs) and inform the public as to how they can harm their health and wellness.   Steve and Kevin visited the rally in order to listen, learn and share what they saw and heard with you. They actually learned a lot.  As you will see in the video, the people attending the rally were not just spirited in their protests, but also very well informed about GMOs.  For instance, they learned from Nance Broderzen about toxins such as glyphosates and how...

Myths of The War on Terror

Michael Shermer of the Skeptic Magazine and Skeptics Society really did the country a service with their latest magazine. Titles such as “A War on Terror Baloney Detection Kit”, “A Skeptics Guide to the War on Terror”, and “Myths of Terrorism” kind of tell you where he and others are coming from.
