Reclaiming the seed: The First Link In The Food Chain

Reclaiming the seed: The First Link In The Food Chain | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

August 20, 2012 THE ECOLOGIST by Vandana Shiva

Besides displacing and destroying diversity, patented GMO seeds are also undermining seed sovereignty. Across the world, new seed laws are being introduced which enforce compulsory registration of seed, thus making it impossible for small farmers to grow their own diversity, and forcing them into dependency on giant seed corporations. Corporations are also patenting climate resilient seeds evolved by farmers, thus robbing farmers of using their own seeds and knowledge for climate adaptation.

Another threat to seed and seed sovereignty is genetic contamination of seed. India has lost its cotton seeds because of contamination from Bt. Cotton. Canada has lost its canola seed because of contamination from Roundup Ready canola. Mexico has lost its corn because of contamination from GMO Corn.... http://www.theecologist.org/News/news_analysis/1547185/reclaiming_the_seed.html

Why GE Labeling Is Monsanto's Worst Nightmare

Why GE Labeling Is Monsanto's Worst Nightmare | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

August 16, 2012 = HuffingtonPost Green

Recent media coverage of Prop 37, the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act, which would permit companies to label foods made with genetically engineered (GE) crops, highlights the gulf between citizens demanding the right to know what's in our food and corporations desperate to keep the public in the dark. According to the California secretary of state, Monsanto and the rest of the pesticide industry's "Big 6" have contributed $13.5 million so far to defeat this initiative, and have put stopping it at the top of their agenda. Add the money from "Big Food" companies and the opposition funding grows to almost $25 million, with an even bigger "gusher" of corporate cash on its way.... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/maria-rodale/why-ge-labeling-is-monsan_b_1788897.html

Filipino Banana Workers Frustrated in Battle Over Dole’s Pesticides

Filipino Banana Workers Frustrated in Battle Over Dole’s Pesticides | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

August 14, 2012 - Working In These Times

The long struggle of a group of Filipino banana workers to hold Dole accountable for toxic exposures reminds us that international capital still has a lot more clout than international law.

Like many environmental justice issues, the legal system can’t do the work of sustained public pressure to demand accountability from the world’s giant fruit cartels. The recent documentary Bananas!* has helped expose Dole’s vicious offensive against the workers--and not surprisingly, the investigation has made the director himself, Fredrik Gertten, a target of Dole’s PR army. Meanwhile in the trenches of Latin America's banana industry, workers are constructing a women-led grassroots network for labor protection.

The toxic residue of Dole’s empire will be felt for years to come, but the quest for justice around the world is growing riper by the day....

The Brain-Damaging Chemical Lurking in Your Food

The Brain-Damaging Chemical Lurking in Your Food | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
A common food contaminant is tied to permanent brain damage.

Pregnant moms exposed to a common insecticide used in farming could give birth to children who go on to develop brain damage years later, according to a new study published online in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The chemical in question is chlorpyrifos, an organophosphate insecticide that was banned for residential use in 2001, but still remains a go-to chemical in nonorganic farming. It kills bugs by disrupting brain function and could be doing the same in America's children.... http://www.rodale.com/pesticides-health-effects

July 30th 2012 - Green Media Info: You Think GMO Is Scary? Nano Tech is Here, In Your Store - WITH LITTLE OR NO REGULATION OR OVERSIGHT !!!

 

Nanotechnology is measured in billionths of a meter, encompassing all aspects of life from food to medicine, clothing, to space. Imagine hundreds of microcomputers on the width of a strand of hair programmed for specific tasks....in your body. Sound good?

It is possible for nano-particles to slip through the skin, suggestive of a potential unnatural interaction with the immune system, or when micro particles enter the blood-stream. Some sunscreens on the shelf today, for instance, have nano-particles that might be able to penetrate the skin, move between organs, with unknown health effects. Nano-particles in cosmetics have few regulations done by FDA... http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/you-think-gmo-scary-nano-tech-here-your-store

Obama - Monanto Man:  Wants a Synthetic Genetically Engineered Future...Gives Free Rein to BioTech Industry | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

The White House has announced the "push" for creating a synthetic bio-tech life on the Planet with little regulation or oversight by government. The formulation of the National Bioeconomy Blueprint, aims at shoring up the U.S. commitment to bioscience-related research at expense of Biodiversity, Environment, Human Health, Reducing Poverty and Sustainable Energy. http://ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=107587

The forming of CLOSE relationships between federal agencies and private corporations is Obama’s focus for a successful transition into the bioeconomy. The Bioeconomy Blueprint will allow federal agencies to coordinate with each other and form relationships with private sector corporations to CONTROL employment and the economy while strangle-holding energy technologies as allocated by the President’s initiative. http://occupycorporatism.com/obamas-bioeconomy-promotes-a-genetically-engineered-future/

(Note From pdjmoo: The Obama Administration just sold the future of our planet and health to the Big Multi-National Corporations and the powerful global Biotech Cartel. With few checks or balances, or peer reviewed independent studies; or controlled regulations, the massive, powerful biotech industry is now free to play in any field with minimum oversight. The danger to this planet is real. You can be assured this is part of the already underway marketing campaign to get industrial agriculture and genetically modified foods (GMO), along with their use of lucrative gazillions of tons of pesticides and chemicals into global markets (all tied into the pharmaceutical industry (see: "The GM Food Industry MO | Reputation Report" http://ow.ly/aJbYn). The strategy is to gain control of the global food and pharmaceutical markets. This is not to say that biotech cannot have a positive role in life, but set free with unfettered license to experiment with the organic web of life on Planet Earth, including humans...scary! And I have to question: What do the Monsanto's of this world have on governments that they get their way - every time, regardless of laws e.g. USDA, FDA, EPA?)

Text of Stealth #MONSANTO 2012 Farm Bill rider. Tell Congress: No Free Pass for BioTech Agriculture

July 17, 2012 Organic Consumers Association: Tell Congress: No Free Pass for Monsanto!
Monsanto has launched a series of sneak attacks on organic and non-GMO farmers and consumers. They began by attaching a rider to the U.S. House of Representatives' 2013 Agriculture Appropriations bill that would make it impossible for organic and non-GMO farmers and seed growers to defend themselves against GMO contamination. (http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_25711.cfm)

***Now, they've gotten a similar provision attached to the House version of the Farm Bill! ***

This even more dangerous provision would stop the EPA from reviewing new and expanded uses of pesticides (often caused by the introduction of new herbicide-resistant GMO crops) and require the USDA to make the approval of new genetically engineered crops easier and faster, limiting USDA review to 180 days. ... http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_25809.cfm

Urgent action is needed today!

Many US food companies are joining up to beat Prop. 37, a bill which requires labels on food identifying GM ingredients.

August 22, 2012 - via Reader Supported News

Big Ag companies have a vested interest in GMO seeds, and the pesticides and herbicides they use in tandem. GMO cotton, soy, sugar beets and corn, which are manipulated to make sweeteners and fats along with other additives like high-fructose corn syrup and soy lecithin, are in ready-made food, snacks, condiments, juice, soda and cereal. Many companies pushing these products into the marketplace prefer to hold profits high and keep consumers in the dark. Labeling these products would affect close to 80% of processed, non-organic food in the US.... http://www.readersupportednews.org/opinion2/277-75/13062-a-list-of-food-companies-that-hide-gmos

"Agriculture is ... a natural system.

In late June, India joined Russia, China, Brazil, and 49 major industrialized nations in REQUIRING GMO LABELING. So far, 50 countries either restrict or ban the use or cultivation of GMOs outright.

 

NEW DELHI, India, August 9, 2012 (ENS) -

-▶ MAHARAHTRA STATE REVOKES MONSANTO'S COTTON SEED LICENSE The Indian state of Maharashtra has revoked Monsanto's license to sell genetically engineered cotton seeds.

The move comes amid an investigation into the rising suicide rates among Maharashtra farmers that have been planting the seeds. Some have suggested the high cost of the seeds, which have failed to repell cotton pests as promised, and the debt incurred by farmers as a result has been a contributor to more than 8,200 suicides in the past decade in the Vidarbah region of the Indian state... http://ens-newswire.com/2012/08/09/maharashtra-state-revokes-monsantos-cotton-seed-license/

Although cotton gave way to other crops in the 1970s, highly toxic agrochemicals continue to be used by the local farmers, who take no safety measures, on their corn, beans and vegetable crops.
In some communities in the Bajo Lempa region, like Ciudad Romero, over 20 percent of the population suffers from chronic kidney disease, with the proportion rising to one out of four among adult men. .. http://www.ipsnews.net/2012/01/el-salvador-pesticides-fill-graveyards-in-rural-villages/

When it comes to ovaries, I get protective. Infertility, endometriosis, and fibroids aren't words I should have to use as frequently as I do. And I'm not the only one noticing this disturbing trend.

Women around me agree that something is definitely wrong.Science is increasingly pointing to chemicals in our lives that act as endocrine disruptors, causing problems associated with reproductive health. According to an article in Environmental Health News last week, "Several new studies are adding to the evidence that some estrogen-mimicking pesticides and industrial chemicals may increase women's risk of uterine and ovarian diseases — helping to solidify a theory that emerged two decades ago."... http://www.panna.org/blog/hands-my-ovaries-chemical-industry

August 9, 2012: | Rodale News

PESTICIDES AREN'T JUST ON THE FOOD, THE CHEMICALS ARE INSIDE FOOD TOO !!

Agrochemicals, lawn treatments, and bug sprays could be causing your chronic disease, science suggests.

Agrochemical supporters tend to fall back on a "the dose makes the poison" theory, meaning tiny exposures aren't really that harmful. Increasingly, though, independent scientists are debunking that belief, even proving that incredibly tiny cumulative doses could set a person up for health problems that might not crop up until decades down the line.

Anne Glover Is Wrong: GMOs: European Union and "Revolving Door" Conflicts of Interest

Anne Glover Is Wrong: GMOs: European Union and "Revolving Door" Conflicts of Interest | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

July 27, 2012- EURACTIVE:

An interview by EurActiv  [1]with Anne Glover, European Commission chief scientific adviser, on GMO crops  triggered a response on EurActiv.fr [2] last week (27 July) from French MEP Corinne Lepage.

ANNE GLOVER IS WRONG: (CHECK OUT RESPONSES AT BOTTOM OF ARTICLE)

Anne Glover, chief scientific adviser of the Commission, said in an interview with EurActiv on 24 July: "There is no substantiated case of any adverse impact on human health, animal health or environmental health, so that’s pretty robust evidence, and I would be confident in saying that there is no more risk in eating GMO food than eating conventionally farmed food." She added that the precautionary principle no longer applies.

Glover's statement is simply inaccurate. It is all the more surprising that it comes from someone who complains about politicians' lack of trust for scientific evidence. ... However, regarding the environmental impact of GMOs, the evidence is overwhelming and completely concrete. Not only is the dissemination of GMOs to non-GM plants proven, but the damage caused by regrowth elsewhere, which requires the use of ever more toxic pesticides, has already become a reality.

PESTICIDES: 10 crops that would disappear without bees | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
