Dec. 21, 2012 Future historians may well look back and write about our time …. about how willing we are to sacrifice our children and jeopardize future generations with this massive experiment that is based on false promises and flawed science just to benefit the “bottom line of a commercial enterprise,” said Don Huber, referring to the North American “experiment” with glyphosate and genetically modified crops... http://www.producer.com/2012/12/scientist-raises-concerns-about-gm-crops-and-glyphosate/

Did a recent scientific study just change the way we should think about the safety of genetically modified foods? According to Ari Levaux at theAtlantic, the answer is a resounding yes.

 

The next wave of genetic engineering uses microRNA to control pests on industrial farms. But new research out of China shows it could have adverse health effects for human digestion.

pdjmoo's insight:

With the USA Government co-opted by the mega corporations, Real change in the broken food system needs to be brought about by people - the farmers, producers, consumers and communities who want equal access to healthy food and a healthy environment.

FOOD ALLERGIES Turn an Unlikely Wall Street Mom into a Food evangelist TED VIDEO 2011

Robyn O'Brien, child-health advocate, shares her personal story and how it inspired her current path as a "Real Food" evangelist. Grounded in a successful Wall Street career that was more interested in food as good business than good-for-you, this mother of four was shaken awake by the dangerous allergic reaction of one of her children to a "typical" breakfast. Her mission to unearth the cause revealed more about the food industry than she could stomach, and impelled her to share her findings with others. Informative and inspiring Robyn O'Brien @unhealthytruth

How Can We Feed the Planet Without Destroying the Planet? | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

RT @ComingFamine

"I think we need to move to an entirely new paradigm about feeding the world, and doing it at the global scale with global strategies," Foley said. "Instead of calling it agriculture, which we've had for 10,000 years, maybe it's time for something new, what I like to call terraculture, or farming for the whole planet."

During the first morning of the GreenBiz Forums, Jon Foley, director of the University of Minnesota's Institute of the Environment, laid out a business plan for the Earth that aims to feed 9 billion people by 2050 while shrinking agriculture's...

PATENTLY OFFENSIVE: Trouble with Transgenic Drift of Genetically Modified Organisms

PATENTLY OFFENSIVE: Trouble with Transgenic Drift of Genetically Modified Organisms | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
A June 2011 ABC News poll found that 93 percent of Americans believe that genetically modified foods should be labeled.

 

Despite consumer opposition, adoption of transgenic crops has been rapid in the U.S., but limited in the main to the major commodity crops, of which genetically engineered varieties now make up the vast majority: soybean (93% transgenic in 2010), cotton (88%) corn (86%), and canola (64%).

GMO Film Project Sizzler

Today in the United States, by the simple act of feeding ourselves, we unwittingly participate in the largest experiment ever conducted on human beings. Massive agro-chemical companies like Monsanto (Agent Orange) and Dow (Napalm) are feeding us genetically-modified food, GMO's, that have never been fully tested and aren't labeled. This small handful of corporations are tightening their grip on the world's food supply—buying, modifying, and patenting seeds to ensure total control over everything we eat.
