U.S. Farmers Cope With Roundup-Resistant Weeds - Lashings and Lashings of Pesticides

U.S. Farmers Cope With Roundup-Resistant Weeds - Lashings and Lashings of Pesticides | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

NEW YORK TIMES: Heavy use of the weedkiller Roundup has led to the rapid growth of herbicide-resistant weeds that could lead to higher food prices and more pollution.

Just as the heavy use of antibiotics contributed to the rise of drug-resistant supergerms, American farmers’ near-ubiquitous use of the weed-killer Roundup has led to the rapid growth of tenacious new superweeds.

What Is Intensive Farming?

What Is Intensive Farming? | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Intensive farming really emphasizes high productivity, and high input of capital investment in technology and machinery. It involves growing high yield crops on a relatively small piece of land. It requires using chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and insecticides to get rid of pests and competing crops, and using highly efficient and advanced machinery to cultivate, plant, and harvest.

▶ HONEYBEE DIE-OFF NEARING A 'CRITICAL POINT'

Of particular concern is a group of pesticides, chemically similar to nicotine, called neonicotinoids (neonics for short), and one in particular called clothianidin. Instead of being sprayed, neonics are used to treat seeds, so that they're absorbed by the plant's vascular system, and then end up attacking the central nervous systems of bees that come to collect pollen. Virtually all of today's genetically engineered Bt corn is treated with neonics... http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2012/jan/13/honeybee-problem-critical-point?intcmp=122

pdjmoo's insight:

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that as bees move from flower to flower they are gathering more and more of these toxic chemicals.  Their little immune systems can't handle it and this weakness makes them more vulnerable to all sorts of viruses and illness. Beyond this, we humans eat the honey they work so hard to make.  Connecting the dots: could it be that the same pesticides sprayed on the food and crops we eat be a cause for the massive obesity, diabetes, ADHD, alzheimers epidemic also?

  - ▶  65 BILLION CONFINED FARM ANIMALS - CAFOs (Confined Animal Feed Operations). Today, nearly 65 BILLION animals worldwide, including cows, chickens and pigs, are crammed into CAFOs (Confined Animal Feed Lots). These animals are literally imprisoned and tortured in unhealthy, unsanitary and unconscionably cruel conditions. Sickness is the norm for animals who are confined rather than pastured, and who eat GMO corn and soybeans, rather than grass and forage as nature intended. To prevent the inevitable spread of disease from stress, overcrowding and lack of vitamin D, animals are fed a steady diet of antibiotics. Those antibiotics pose a direct threat to the environment when they run off into our lakes, rivers, aquifers and drinking water.

   The vast majority of consumers don’t realize that nearly 95% of the meat, dairy and eggs sold in the U.S. come from CAFOs. Nor do most people realize that CAFOs represent a corporate-controlled system characterized by large-scale, centralized, low profit-margin production, processing and distribution systems....Ronnie Cummins via Common Dreams, http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/01/17-5

Grant Graves's curator insight, October 24, 2014 5:27 PM

The meat industry has an unearthly amount of animals at their mercy that are unnecessarily slaughtered year after year in a seemingly endless cycle of death and cruelty. Factory farming is an unethical and confining practice often covered up by the U.S. government 's "Ag Gag" laws that allow companies to bypass laws that would commonly carry large fines and even prison time, if caught. Instead, animal rights activists are often charged with "crimes" for reporting animal abuses. This was such a case in Amy Meyer's arrest. Meyer was arrested for taking photographs , while standing on public property, of cows being hit and abused on a nearby slaughterhouse in Utah. Such cases show how the U.S. government allows unaccounted wrongdoings. In all, due to the negligence of government officials on this issue, it is up to the citizens of the U.S. to stand up for those without a voice.

Lashing Our Food With More Pesticides: Biotech: Battle lines form with USDA . Time to Just Say NO to GMO

As weeds across large swaths of the Midwest have developed a resistance to Monsanto Co.'s "Roundup" herbicide, Dow AgroSciences LLC is asking the Department of Agriculture to sign off on a new genetically engineered corn seed that is resistant to the toxic chemical.

Experts predict that if USDA approves Dow AgroSciences' petition, the use of the chemical would jump to at least five to seven times its current levels. That is particularly worrisome... is linked to birth defects, reproductive disorders, hormonal issues and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas and several other cancers.

Bee Losses, Your Food and Pesticides - Seed Treatments Questioned

Bee Losses, Your Food and Pesticides - Seed Treatments Questioned | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
Findings point to treated corn seed — and corn syrup — as possible links to a pandemic afflicting North American pollinators.

SEED TREATMENTS QUESTIONED
In North America and parts of Europe, many seeds now are coated with neonicotinoid insecticides before planting. As seeds germinate, the chemical enters the plant and circulates throughout its tissues, protecting vulnerable roots.

This systemic circulation of the pesticide bolsters concern by Lu’s team that imidacloprid can move into corn kernels. If it does, then the chemical could end up tainting corn syrup.

Today, imidacloprid or one of its neonicotinoid cousins coats most conventional and virtually all genetically modified corn seed, notes Charles Benbrook, chief scientist at the Organic Center in Troy, Ore. That’s troubling, he argues, because in terms of their impact on bees, neonicotinoids “are the most acutely toxic pesticides ever registered.”

The world's most popular weed killer can induce morphological changes in vertebrate animals, U.S. biologists studying its effect on amphibians say.

"This discovery highlights the fact that pesticides... can have unintended consequences for species that are not the pesticide's target," Relyea said.

The Salt Lake Tribune’s front page headline declared, "Highest rate in the nation, 1 in 32 Utah boys has autism." This is a national public health emergency, whose epicenter is Utah, Gov. Herbert. A more obscure story on the same day read: "New pesticides linked to bee population collapse." If you eat food, and hope to do so in the future, this is another national emergency, Pres. Obama.

WE DO NOT NEED GENETICALLY ENGINEERED BANANAS - IT'S PURE HYPE, REQUIRING LASHINGS OF PESTICIDES FOR CORPORATE COFFERS AND PATENTING OF SEEDS

 

                                                  WATCH : 48:20                                        
             ▶ THE MIRACLE OF  GROWING THE NATURAL "BANANA"  ▶

WITHOUT LASHINGS OF PESTICIDES OR GENETIC MANIPULATION https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gya6yu3zKuo

 

 ▶  NO REGULATION, NO OVERSIGHT, NO LABELING. We need to proceed with great caution about gene-altered "fortified" food that has no boundaries or dosage warnings and no regulation or labels. Whether your body needs the "fortification" it or not,  it will enter your digestive system risking Vitamin A overdose, reactions, allergies and deaths.  More dangerous is that potential spread of these gene-altered crops into traditional bananas without us knowing it, impacting surrounding biodiversity, wildlife and pollinators.   

 

 

 

                                 ======================

                                     VITAMIN A OVERDOSE

                                 ======================

 

Many of the "vitamin" fortified GMO crops are the only source of food in impoverished nation and/or the multiple crops being fortified mean each meal they are getting yet another dose of a vitamin either they may not need or can develop serious health symptoms from overdose.

 

  -▶  GROWING MEDICINES, ARTIFICIAL VITAMINS IN GMO PLANTS REQUIRES NEW, STRICT REGULATIONS AND OVERSIGHT - PATENTING PLANTS http://sco.lt/5H7cZt

 

 "Recent tests have revealed that a substantial amount of vitamin A can be obtained by eating only 60g of cooked golden rice. "

What is not being addressed is the issue of Vitamin A overdose and poisoning.

The only known GMO with inbred human traits in cultivation today, a GM rice product made by biotechnology company Ventria Bioscience is currently being grown on 3,200 acres in Junction City, Kansas — and possibly elsewhere — and most people have no idea about it.
Since about 2006, Ventria has been quietly cultivating rice that has been genetically modified (GM) with genes from the human liver for the purpose of taking the artificial proteins produced by this “Frankenrice” and using them in pharmaceuticals.

pdjmoo's insight:

▶  THIS MASS GMO EXPERIMENTATION ON HUMANS NEEDS TO STOP In this instance, what if we unknowingly, eat too many of these gene-altered bananas?  Adverse affect on health?  And what happens when the GMO pollen scatters and repollinates traditional bananas and we all end up eating them OR overdosing our bodies ? And what happens to the birds, insects, bees and other pollinators that ingest this over and over again?  The questions go on and should be answered fully before anything is introduced into our environment...for the sake of all life on earth.

Americans Eat the Cheapest Food in the World, But What is It Really Costing Us? Obesity Plus

Americans Eat the Cheapest Food in the World, But What is It Really Costing Us? Obesity Plus | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
The US spends less on food than any country in the world...

But let’s be clear, it’s not like we’re getting a deal overall. The big picture is much more grim because of the ecological ramifications of our industrialized food system. It also means we're spending more than ever on healthcare because we’re so absurdly overweight. If Americans continue to pack on pounds, obesity will cost us about $344 billion in medical-related expenses by 2018, eating up about 21 percent of healthcare spending, according to an article in USA Today. Not to mention the unseen health issues associated with a genetically modified and pesticide-bathed food system.

OUR POISONED FOOD: Are Pesticides Pushing Honeybees Past the Tipping Point? | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Of particular concern is a group of pesticides, chemically similar to nicotine, called neonicotinoids (neonics for short), and one in particular called clothianidin. Instead of being sprayed, neonics are used to treat seeds, so that they’re absorbed by the plant’s vascular system, and then end up attacking the central nervous systems of bees that come to collect pollen. Virtually all of today’s genetically engineered Bt corn is treated with neonics.

Monsanto plans massive biotech experiment in the US | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
The US government has for the first time signed off on a large-scale experiment involving genetically modified crops, which will lead to biotech big shot Monsanto introducing an engineered corn seed across America from South Dakota to Texas.

More likely, however, is that a success will mean revitalization in terms of Monsanto’s profits..

(@pdjmoo: more pesticides, more farmland pollution, more loss of biodiversity, more small farm degradation. Just like the rest of their GMO juggernaut, short-term profits for long-term toxic pollution of our lands, insects and human health. So what else is new....Monsanto writes its' own ticket with the USDA and governments for global domination of farmland and food supply ...@pdjmoo)
