TED Aligns with Monsanto, Halting any Talks About GMOs, ‘Food as Medicine’ or Natural Healing

TED Aligns with Monsanto, Halting any Talks About GMOs, ‘Food as Medicine’ or Natural Healing | World Truth.TV
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Allow me to be the first to announce that TED is dead. Why? Because the group that organizes so-called “TED talks” has been thoroughly hijacked by corporate junk science and now openly rejects any talks about GMOs, food as medicine, or even the subject of how food can help prevent behavioral disorders in children. All these areas of discussion are now red-flagged from being presented on any TED stage.

This is openly admitted by TEDx itself in a little-known letter publicly published on December 7, 2012. Click here to view the letter.

In that letter, TED says that people who talk about GMOs are engaged in “pseudoscience.” Those who discuss the healing potential of foods are spreading…

Read the actual letter. It is not offensive, explains why they are doing what they are doing, and as a scientist I agree with their rationale.

Ya, I just read the letter, too. I agree with you, turttle. It looks to me like TED is seriously trying to weed out the junk science presentations. There are many talented, engaging and powerful speakers out there who are really not presenting "science" at all.

You guys all realize TED stands for technology, entertainment, and design…. right? As with any online source…. we really gotta be on our toes. 1st off…. the “Freedom Ranger’ isn’t without bias and a quick read tells me the title he picked for his article sucks… it was intended to be sensational so…. he could attract more readers to click on his ads. TED isn’t exactly without bias though either and they’ve got their agenda to advance too…. remember this thread, Conserving grasslands through wise livestock grazing But…. I doubt seriously if TED is censoring GMO types of discussions….. just a coupla months ago I watched a presentation by Dr. Vrain on the evils of GMOed everything and it was HOSTED or SPONSORED or whatever by TED. It’s really a great talk and this man is NOT a proponent of GMOed anything any more,
