On the night of September 2, after hearing about the ridiculous study that demonized organic food and claimed that it was virtually the same as GMO-laden conventional food, I decided to shoot a short 9 minute video within an accompanying article breaking down the study. As this was the night before the real news cycle began the following morning in the alternative media, this piece really blew up. It was graciously hosted on Alex Jones’ Infowars as a featured news piece as well as featured in an article on the subject by NaturalNews‘ Mike Adams.

Essentially, it was the first piece to really respond to the outlandish hit piece with a serious response. It may come as no surprise to many of you, then, to know that we were hit with a massive attack between the early morning hours of September 4th (as the piece really began to gain traction) and the night of the same day. Hit by a complicated series of denial of service attack (known as a DDoS attack) resulting in a complete server crash, we did our best to trace the location and halt the intrusion. 

Attempts Made to Delete Article

What is most interesting about this attack, however, is that multiple attempts were also made to actually infiltrate the server and remove the organic food study piece. In the process, a similar article was actually damaged and rendered completely inaccessible to readers for a long period of time. It is interesting to note that all of this happened during the crunch time for Proposition 37, which seeks to label GMOs in California. The video and article centered heavily on the fact that GMOs within conventional food make it a serious threat to your health.
