This was hammered home once again in what may be the most important agricultural study this year, although it has been largely ignored by the media, two of the leading science journals and even one of the study’s sponsors, the often hapless Department of Agriculture....http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/10/19/a-simple-fix-for-food/

Of course Monsanto says its safe | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
These industry-funded studies aren’t science as much as they are public relations, always concluding that GE is safe and good.

If you’ve been paying attention to the news about food lately, you’ve probably read about the now infamous “Seralini study,” http://www.foodandwaterwatch.org/blogs/first-long-term-ge-food-study-results-are-in-and-theyre-not-pretty/ In this study University of Caen (France) molecular biologist Gilles-Eric Seralini demonstrated major health issues associated with eating Monsanto’s genetically engineered (GE) corn and the herbicide used in conjunction with it, RoundUp.

Widely covered by the media, most reports have tried to portray Seralini as a strident, ideologically driven researcher who willfully designed a study to produce a result showing that GE food is bad.

But this attack coverage seems grossly disproportionate given the realities around funding and bias in agricultural research... http://www.foodandwaterwatch.org/blogs/of-course-monsanto-says-its-safe/

“Big 6” Pesticide Corporations Top the List of Food Labeling Opponents | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

October 11, 2012

Sacramento, CA — According to filings released by the California Secretary of State this week, the world’s six largest pesticide corporations, or “Big 6”, are now the six largest funders of opposition to Proposition 37. Collectively they have contributed more than $20 million to oppose the measure that would label genetically engineered food, including an intensive advertising campaign over the past two weeks.

Monsanto and five other corporations — BASF, Bayer, Dow, DuPont and Syngenta, collectively known as the “Big 6” — dominate the world’s seed and pesticide markets and actively oppose the measure... and...continue to enjoy unfettered and unlabeled access to the market, while consumers are left largely in the dark,” said Marcia Ishii-Eiteman, PhD, senior scientist at Pesticide Action Network....  http://www.panna.org/big-6/press-release/big-6-pesticide-corporations-top-list-food-labeling-opponents

Boulder Weekly, August 28, 2014

THE COUCH CLEANSE. Distorted science. Fabricated watchdog groups. False testimonies. Decades of public deception. It’s the stuff of a summer blockbuster — but truth is stranger than fiction, they say.

And so it is with the story of how, over the course of nearly 40 years, flame retardant substances ended up in nearly every piece of furniture, every electronic, every household ware and article of clothing in the U.S. In a four-part series from 2012, the Chicago Tribune used thousands of government, scientific and internal documents to expose the intricate web of lies that made it possible for chemical companies to fill American homes (cars, classrooms, hospitals…) with compounds known to cause cancer, disrupt sexual and neurological development and impair fertility.  http://www.boulderweekly.com/article-13273-the-couch-cleanse.html

The average American baby is born with 10 fingers, 10 toes and the highest recorded levels of flame retardants among infants in the world. The toxic chemicals are present in nearly every home, packed into couches, chairs and many other products. Two powerful industries — Big Tobacco and chemical manufacturers — waged deceptive campaigns that led to the proliferation of these chemicals, which don’t even work as promised.

CHEMICAL INDUSTRY FIGHTS FOR FLAME RETARDANTS.

CHICAGO — As furniture makers move to phase out toxic, ineffective flame retardants, the chemical industry is waging an aggressive last-ditch campaign to preserve a lucrative market that reaches into virtually every American home. One of the world's leading manufacturers of flame retardants is suing California to block a new flammability standard that starting next year (2015)  will allow furniture manufacturers to eliminate the chemicals from new upholstered sofas and chairs sold nationwide. The lawsuit is backed by the American Chemistry Council, the industry's chief trade group.Chemical industry fights for flame retardants..

The trade group also lobbied fiercely to thwart a California bill that would require labels on any new furniture that still contains flame retardants. Ads in the online editions of local newspapers urged people to tell state lawmakers "to oppose legislation that misleads consumers about weakened fire safety standards.".. http://www.firechief.com/2014/08/29/chemical-industry-fights-for-flame-retardants/

THE CHEMICAL INDUSTRY CARTEL rallies around an attack on Nick Kristof of the New York Times, but he's right.

The basic strategy is an old one. As David Michaels notes in his book “Doubt Is Their Product,” the first evidence that asbestos causes cancer emerged in the 1930s. But three decades later, industry executives were still railing about “ill-informed and exaggerated” press reports, still covering up staggering cancer rates, and still denouncing regulation of asbestos as “premature.” Huge numbers of Americans today are dying as a result... http://www.treehugger.com/green-architecture/formaldehyde-should-not-be-our-houses-no-matter-how-natural-big-chem-says-it.html

If chemicals are carcinogens, should the government hide that information?

October 6, 2012 - New York Times, Nicholas D. Kristoff

WHO knew that carcinogens had their own lobby in Washington?

The industry’s strategy is to lobby Congress to cut off money for the Report on Carcinogens, a 500-page consensus document published every two years by the National Institutes of Health, containing the best information about what agents cause cancer.

Just consider formaldehyde, which is found in everything from nail polish to kitchen countertops, fabric softeners to carpets. Largely because of its use in building materials, we breathe formaldehyde fumes when we’re inside our homes. Just one other fact you should know: According to government scientists, it causes cancer.

The larger issue is whether the federal government should be a watchdog for public health, or a lap dog for industry... http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/07/opinion/sunday/kristof-the-cancer-lobby.html?_r=0

Why is Kofi Annan Fronting For Monsanto?  The GMO Assault On Africa | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Kofi Annan has joined with President Obama, Monsanto, AGRA, and the Gates foundation to promote and execute food aid that replaces bags of wheat, rice and corn (agricultural dumping) with bags of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers and genetically engineered seeds. The end result will be to starve people in Africa and feed corporations in the US and Europe....under the guise of "sustainability"... http://crossedcrocodiles.wordpress.com/2010/08/31/why-is-kofi-annan-fronting-for-monsanto-the-gmo-assault-on-africa/

NOW "MUTAGENESIS" -  AS OPPOSITION TO GM CROPS GROWS, COMPANIES ARE TURNING TO "MUTANT" SEED BREEDING

Mutagenesis deletes and rearranges hundreds or thousands of genes randomly, spawning mutations that are less precise than GMOs. ... The process, which faces almost no regulation, creates opportunities for companies to grab a bigger share of the $34 billion global commercial seed market. But some scientists say mutant crops are more likely to pose health risks than genetically modified ones.

All breeding techniques can create plants with increased levels of naturally occurring toxins or with proteins known to cause allergic reactions....Reports from the National Academy of Sciences, representing the consensus of experts in the field, say the risk of creating unintended health effects is greater from mutagenesis than any other technique, including genetic modification. ...

Are You Wearing Deforestation T-Shirts? GMO Toxic Pesticide-Laden Cotton? | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

October 8, 2012 - Telegraph

MOST COTTON WE WEAR IS GENETICALLY ENGINEERED WITH HIGHLY TOXIC PESTICIDES

Three quarters of the cotton clothes bought in Britain today are made from a genetically modified crop, according to experts, including items available in major High Street stores. “Growing GMO cotton is a toxic business; it uses a lot of pesticides – putting in peril the lives of women, men and children in cotton farming communities. 77 million cotton workers suffer poisonings from pesticides each year.

GM COTTON:  A FALSE PROMISE FOR AFRICA'S FARMERS

Monsanto and the biotech industry claim and argue that genetically modified cotton is the desperately needed panacea to revive Africa's cotton sector. However, GM cotton neither addresses nor resolves the root economic, structural and political causes behind the collapse of the cotton sector in Africa.

COUNTING THE COST OF A T-SHIRT HUGE WATER USAGE AND LASHINGS OF INSECTICIDES  The worldwide demand for cotton is a heavy burden for the planet. Cotton uses more insecticides than any other single crop, not only degrading the soil and drinking water, but also placing many farmers in debt. About 2,600 litres of water are needed to grow the cotton for one T-shirt.  http://www.ipsnews.net/2012/03/counting-the-cost-at-2600-litres-of-water-a-t-shirt/

USA: ENTIRE COTTON AND SOY FIELDS MOWED DOWN TO PESTICIDE RESISTANT WEEDS Palmer amaranth, which is a glyphosate-resistant weed has had a substantially negative impact on crop yields and profitability for cotton and soybean growers in U.S. Southern states. The concern about glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth, which has caused entire cotton and soybean fields to be mowed down in some Southern states, is that if the weed takes hold in Ohio crop fields, it will be even harder to control than the glyphosate-resistant weeds already present statewide

-▶ GENETICALLY MODIFIED Bt FOOD TOXIN FOUND IN THE BLOOD OF 95% OF UNBORN BABIES - NEW STUDY. The new study was carried out by independent doctors at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, at the University of Sherbrooke Hospital Centre in Quebec, Canada. Traces of Bt toxin were found in the blood of 93 per cent of the pregnant mothers – 28 out of 30. It was also found in 80 per cent of the umbilical cords – 24 out of 30.
     In the non-pregnant group, traces were found in the blood of 69 per cent – 27 out of 39. It is thought the toxin is getting into the human body as a result of eating meat, milk and eggs from farm livestock fed GM corn.
The Canadian team told the scientific journal Reproductive Toxicology: ‘This is the first study to highlight the presence of pesticides associated with genetically modified foods in maternal, foetal and non-pregnant women’s blood.’.. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1388888/GM-food-toxins-blood-93-unborn-babies.html

MONSANTO AND THE SEEDS OF SUICIDE

Control over seed is the first link in the food chain because seed is the source of life. When a corporation controls seed, it controls life, especially the life of farmers. Through patents on seed, Monsanto has become the "Life Lord" of our planet, collecting rents for life's renewal from farmers, the original breeders.

Monsanto's concentrated control over the seed sector in India as well as across the world is very worrying. Monsanto's seed monopolies, the destruction of alternatives, the collection of superprofits in the form of royalties, and the increasing vulnerability of monocultures has created a context for debt, suicides and agrarian distress which is driving the farmers' suicide epidemic in India. This systemic control has been intensified with Bt cotton. That is why most suicides are in the cotton belt..... http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/03/27-4

UNEP Global Chemicals Outlook Report | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

September 2012- CSR International

Poisoning from industrial and agricultural chemicals is contributing to over one million deaths a year and global economic losses of hundreds of billions of dollars a year. Between 2005 and 2020, the accumulated cost of illness and injury linked to pesticides in small-scale farming in sub-Saharan Africa could reach $90bn

UN Environment Program analyzed the major economic and humanitarian damage arising worldwide from poor chemicals management. The report highlights the failure of businesses and governments to adequately address the threats presented by hazardous chemicals and urges them to work closer together to develop more effective chemicals policies and promote best practices..... more
