  - ▶  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

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.

(Why is this even necessary?  The Biotech and GMO industry has decimated our biodiversity meddling with original seed genes that require heavy use of pesticides and chemicals with these crops.  Preserving seeds so these industries can further alter nature's natural systems is unforgivable.  We should be focusing and studying nature's knowledge of adjustment and needs for environmental changes, not trying to manipulate Her to suit our needs.  We have insufficient knowledge to understand the chain reaction of these biotech meddlings) Gene banks represent an overdue push to preserve crop biodiversity.

BayerCrop Science launches a "bee care program" to promote honeybee health. Strangely, it's press release says nothing about neonicotinoids.

Bee advocates have long had concerns about Bayer CropScience's neonicotinoid pesticides, and those concerns have recently been compounded by research linking bee deaths to exposure to neonicotinoid seed insecticides, and other studies suggesting that even exposure to minute quantities of imidacloprid—made by Bayer CropScience—could leave bees more vulnerable to a deadly parasite.

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.

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.

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)

Do pesticides cause CCD? This is a question that beekeepers have been asking ever since CCD hit the na­tional scene in 2007. In a series of articles in the American Bee Journal, Randy Oliver has done an exceptional job of distilling much of the recent research results into a meaningful update for beekeepers relative to this ques­tion (Oliver, R. 2010; See also Scientific Beekeeping.com).
