When Governments Work For Corporations: GMOs, pesticides, and the new scientific deadlock

When Governments Work For Corporations: GMOs, pesticides, and the new scientific deadlock | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

A new study says GMO crops have led farmers to use 400 million more pounds of pesticide than they would have otherwise. Here's how to interpret the science -- and the critique. http://grist.org/food/superweeds-story/

SuperWeeds, SuperPests, SuperToxins: The Legacy of Pesticides

SuperWeeds, SuperPests, SuperToxins: The Legacy of Pesticides | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Farmers and scientists are absorbing hard lessons about the downside of genetically engineering crops to tolerate herbicides.

 

October 5, 2012 - New York Times

-▶ THE LEGACY OF PESTICIDE, SUPERWEEDS AND SUPER PESTS

Farmers spray the herbicide glyphosate, widely sold under the Monsanto brand Roundup, on fields planted with seeds that are genetically engineered to tolerate the chemical. Found in 1.37 billion acres of corn, soybeans, and cotton planted from 1996 through 2011, this “Roundup Ready” gene was supposed to reduce or eliminate the need to till fields or apply harsher chemicals, making weed control simple, flexible, cheap, and less environmentally taxing.

In fact, this system has led farmers to use a greater number of herbicides in higher volumes, according to the study, published this week in the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Sciences Europe.,, http://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/10/05/the-legacy-of-pesticides-superweeds-and-superpests/


Ag Answers, August 23, 2012
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

IN BEIJING YOU CAN PAY FOR TRAIN RIDES WITH PLASTIC BOTTLES. Across the world, there are many ways to encourage recycling. Tax breaks, virtual points, deposit payments--there's no shortage of ideas. Recently, we even came across a machine in Istanbul that gives out dog food in return for a bottle or two. Beijing is now taking its own approach by giving free train rides and mobile phone top-ups to people redeeming used plastic. Machines in 34 locations take bottle deposits and calculate their worth, issuing a credit to the person's mobile account or transit pass. Sensors scan the bottle's weight and composition, then prompt users to choose their option. http://www.fastcoexist.com/3034720/in-beijing-you-can-pay-for-train-rides-with-plastic-bottles

Journal retraction of Séralini study is illicit, unscientific, and unethical.
Hayes’ decision to retract the paper follows FCT’s appointment of Richard E. Goodman, a former Monsanto scientist and an affiliate of the GMO industry-funded group, the International Life Sciences Institute, to the specially created post of associate editor for biotechnology at the journal, early this year.[10]
Goodman’s appointment in turn followed an orchestrated campaign by GMO supporters to persuade FCT to retract the study. Some critics even accused Prof Séralini of fraud, without presenting any evidence. Many of the critics had undeclared conflicts of interest with the GMO industry.

Corporate Industrial Factory Farming Treats Our Animals Like Objects on an Auto Production Line: You Are What You Eat

Corporate Industrial Factory Farming Treats Our Animals Like Objects on an Auto Production Line: You Are What You Eat | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
Many a person has given up meat on learning about the cruelties of factory farming. Turns out it's not required...or enough.


There is something terribly wrong with the industrial agriculture system that produces almost all of our country's eggs, dairy and meat. By wrong, I mean unethical, and I am not talking about the killing part at the end of the process, but everything that precedes it. I am talking about the way farm animals are treated for the whole of their lives.

It goes by the name of factory farming because it deals with animals as just so many inanimate parts on an assembly line. The treatment involves great cruelty of a kind we outlaw for animals in pet shops and zoos. Only livestock is allowed this kind of abuse.... http://www.nrdc.org/thisgreenlife/1111.asp

NEW DELHI and CAIRO: A damning report published by Animals Australia revealed that the Pakistan government has clubbed, stabbed and buried alive tens of thousands of Australian sheep (and cattle) in the latest cruelty to arise from the live export trade.

“These are the latest tragic results of a live export industry that sends animals to be killed in countries where there are no laws to protect them from cruelty,” said Animals Australia in a press statement.

“No politician can defend a trade that comes with the risk of animals being clubbed, stabbed, or buried alive. Enough is enough.

How GMOs Unleashed a Pesticide Gusher

How GMOs Unleashed a Pesticide Gusher | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

October 3, 2012

In a just-released paper published in the peer-reviewed Environmental Sciences Europe,Chuck Benbrook, research professor at Washington State University's Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources, shreds that claim. He found that Monsanto's Roundup Ready technology, which dominates corn, soy, and cotton farming, has called forth a veritable monsoon of herbicides, both in terms of higher application rates for Roundup, and, in recent years, growing use of other, more-toxic herbicides.

Benbrook found that overall, GMO technology drove up herbicide use by 527 million pounds, or about 11 percent, between 1996 (when Roundup Ready crops first hit farm fields) and 2011. But it gets worse...http://www.carighttoknow.org/gmos_unleashed_a_pesticide_gusher

Chemicals damaging health and environment – USATODAY.com

A U.N. report highlights the growing health and environmental hazards from chemicals.The report by the U.N. Environment Program warned that the increasing production of chemicals is increasing health costs.

UNEP said chemicals have become so important to daily life in today's world that the value of their output has grown to $4.12 trillion, compared to $171 billion in 1970.

But of the more than 140,000 chemicals estimated to be on the market today, UNEP said only a fraction have been thoroughly evaluated to determine their effects on health and the environment.

UNEP's Executive Director Achim Steiner said the world is increasingly dependent on chemical products, from fertilizers and petrochemicals to electronics and plastics, for economic development but he said "the gains that chemicals can provide must not come at the expense of human health and the environment."... http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/health/story/2012-09-06/un-chemicals-health/57634948/1#.UGuiFNqzOUc.twitter

Corn: Now and Then (Infographic) | Wake Up World

In the US, corn was first subsidized in the late ‘70s as a fossil fuel alternative, but it’s turned out to be inefficient source of fuel.

September 30, 2012

First subsidized in the late ‘70s as a fossil fuel alternative, it’s turned out to be inefficient source of fuel. Not only that, ethanol from corn actually increases the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere at a higher rate than gasoline. Yet, the U.S. PAYS $10 to $30 BILLION DOLLARS EACH YEAR OF YOUR MONEY in farm subsidies to raise even more of it, with no clear benefit to consumers.... http://wakeup-world.com/2012/09/29/corn-now-and-then-infographic/

 

Note From @pdjmoo:  Further most of it is grown with genetically modified seed with lashings of pesticides and chemicals, so once again, we have the all-powerful biotechnology cartel lobbying US Government to indirectly give our tax dollars to corn farmers as an incentive to use their products - and, of course, to keep the price up.

The only scientific evidence for the approval of GM soy in Argentina were research data provided by Monsanto.

Argentina uses 300 million liters of chemicals each year, which is estimated to have a direct negative impact on 12 million people. They demanded that the national government ban aerial spraying and restrict ground spraying, and called for urgent implementation of the precautionary principle which is contained in Argentine law.... http://www.mo.be/en/article/15-years-gm-soybeans-argentina

Altered Genes, Twisted Truth

Altered Genes, Twisted Truth | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
This book reveals that the biggest scientific fraud of our time does not involve change in the climate but changes to our food.

 

September 24, 2012 JUST RELEASED: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public

 

This book uncovers the biggest scientific fraud of our age. It tells the fascinating and frequently astounding story of how the massive enterprise to restructure the genetic core of the world’s food supply came into being, how it advanced by consistently violating the protocols of science, and how for more than three decades, hundreds of eminent biologists and esteemed institutions have systematically contorted the truth in order to conceal the unique risks of its products and get them onto our dinner plates...Altered Genes, Twisted Truth gives a graphic account of how this elaborate fraud was crafted and how it not only deceived the general public, but Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Barack Obama and a host of other astute and influential individuals as well. 

The book also exposes how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) became a key accomplice, in furtherance of its explicit agenda "to foster" biotechnology...Consequently, for fifteen years, America's families have been regularly ingesting a group of novel products that are not only being sold illegally, but were determined to be unduly hazardous by the FDA's scientific staff...


By the time you've finished reading this story, it will be clear that the degradation of science it documents has not only been unsavory but unprecedented – and that in no other instance have so many scientists so seriously subverted the standards they were trained to uphold, misled so many people, and imposed such magnitude of risk on both human and environmental health.

September 21, 2012 - The Green Prophet

The notion that the toxic chemical soup mixture that we expose ourselves to on a daily basis doesn’t have any impact seems outright illogical. Indeed, a recent study by the UN states that we are living in a world overwhelmed with chemicalsand that better management of chemicals could save millions of lives.

The study released in early September by the U.N Environment Program states that urgent action is needed to reduce the growing health and environmental hazards we face due to exposure to chemical substances. There is an estimated 143,000 chemicals being produced that we know very little about and the UN states that only a fraction of these chemicals are evaluated to determine their effects on human health and the environment.... http://www.greenprophet.com/2012/09/un-who-millions-saved-chemicals/
