Humboldt State University, Jeffrey Raber said a recent study he conducted found that up to 70 percent of the pesticides found on a marijuana bud can transfer to the smoke being inhaled.."It's much like injecting it directly into your blood stream.”...

...especially in the medical patient context,” Raber said. “These are people that are immunocompromised, they're undergoing chemotherapy, they're very sick with antibacterial loads. We can't be subjecting them to more of these types of potentially harmful contaminants when they're looking to this as a medicine source.”  http://www.times-standard.com/localnews/ci_24628828/what-are-you-smoking-study-finds-pesticides-transfer

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, September 18, 2013 12:18 PM

The reason why you may not have thought much about these pesticide plants before is because our media has found itself in an unhealthy alliance with well paid spokespeople who aggressively represent the biotech industry’s point of view.

lloyd stanley gordon's curator insight, September 30, 2013 3:31 PM

Simply  frightful!  I  have  been commenting on this topic  since I first published my in  house  thesis  for  the  21st  century:Quantum Organiculture. It  was  published  for me  by the  Jamaican Gleaner  company  during the  80s  and  90s,  and  a  modified version  by the Science Research Council of Jamaica at  their  16th Annual Conference in Kingston Jamaica. My  position remains  the  same  and  as far as I cn see is being  almightily reinforced  by  these  findings.  

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, October 25, 2013 4:21 AM

You become what is in what you eat. Do you want to consume food full of pesticides? They are dangerous, disease causing and can become deadly. Just read the facts if you can find them.

THE WALMARTIZATION OF AGRICULTURE

- ▶ Walmart has become an icon of the corporate rush to keep costs low and profits high, regardless of the effects on society. They sell cheaply made goods—often produced in deplorable conditions—for low prices and keep overhead costs low by refusing to pay their workers a livable wage. It is this business strategy that catapulted them to be among the largest corporate interests in the world and allowed them to spread into virtually every corner of the United States....

The massive demand for food by our planet’s population and the proliferation of processed foods in the Walmartization of agriculture, has led to an increase in industrial mono-crop farming, particularly in regard to corn. The industrial mono-crop farming of corn is a very important part of this situation, as much of the world sweet-corn farming is used in the creation of high fructose corn syrup for processed foods. Virtually every processed food contains some amount of high fructose corn syrup, thus huge amounts of corn need to be grown. To make matters worse, American corn that is intended for high fructose corn syrup is commonly made out of GMO corn—oftentimes Monsanto “Roundup Ready” corn... http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-walmartization-of-agriculture/5336449

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.

A group of synthetic biology companies and a representative from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) held a meeting called the SynBioBeta Cultured Food Forum about how to market foods and food additives to the consumer made from extreme forms of genetic engineering as “natural” and “sustainable.” Whenever you read or hear the term synthetic biology, remember that it is a euphemism for extreme genetic engineering... http://www.centerforfoodsafety.org/blog/3126/synthetic-biology-rebranding-extreme-genetic-engineering#

pdjmoo's curator insight, April 16, 2013 2:25 AM

Rather than nurture and foster our natural world back to health,  the huberous of the biotech community wants to change our ecosystems to suit their own financial gains with little or no regards for all the species that depend on a natural, evolving web of life.   What we will be left with is anybody's guess as species after species lays waste to our environment and biosphere.  Their myopic approach disregards the greater whole of the complex and yet to be understood billions of years of natural evolution where the web of life is interconnected and everything is dependent on everything. 

Lucero De La Tierra's curator insight, April 16, 2013 10:44 AM

I fear the more we try to "adjust", "improve", and copy the wonderful creations we find in nature the more we will lead to it's ultimate detriment.

Environmental Working Group, April 24, 2014
▶ MOST U.S. CONVENTIONAL APPLES COATED WITH CARCINOGENIC CHEMICAL BANNED IN EUROPE. USDA pesticide residue tests of apples find DPA more often and at greater concentrations than most other pesticide residues. DPA is also detected in apple juice and applesauce and, less often, on pears and in pear baby food. It is regulated as a pesticide, but its primary function is a “growth regulator” or antioxidant that slows fruit skin discoloration during storage.  http://www.ewg.org/release/most-us-apples-coated-chemical-banned-europe-0

 

Sustainable Pulse, June 18, 2014

 ▶  THE REASON EUROPE BAN AMERICAN APPLES. It’s sad when one of the biggest ‘super powers’ can’t even export a quintessentially American food to another country because it is too toxic to eat. But apples treated with diphenylamine (DPA), a substance which keeps them from turning brown for months at a time when they are kept in storage, is now a sore spot for importers of American apples http://www.nationofchange.org/reason-europe-bans-american-apples-1403109800

▶ GMO APPLES -- TELL THE FDA and USDA NO TO GMO APPLES - NO LABELS, NO REGULATIONS

http://www.cornucopia.org/2013/12/crushed-nutsrotten-apples-pasteurized-nuts-gmo-apples-tell-fda-usda/


The actual genetic engineering process includes insertion of nptII, neomycin phosphotransferase type II gene from E. coli Tn5.  This gene allows the transformed apple tissue to grow on a medium containing the antibiotic kanamycin but confers no benefit to the apple plant.
Every cell of every GE apple tree, including the fruit and the tree roots, will show resistance to kanamycin.  Kanamycin is a commonly used antibiotic in human medicine, used to treat a wide variety of infections.
    Eating an Arctic Apple could transfer the gene for kanamycin resistance into your digestive system.  A similar transfer has been demonstrated with GE soy.   There is a real possibility that bacteria in the human digestive systems could develop kanamycin resistance.  Antibiotic resistance is a major concern among medical professionals.
    Furthermore, the GE apple’s DNA can also spread to bacteria on the plant and in the soil.  Orchardists might very well find that controlling diseases of special concern like fireblight in orchards may become much more difficult.  And in the soil environment, the GE DNA can persist for at least a year, where it can be taken up by natural soil bacteria and then incorporated into their genetic structure.
There is no proof that Arctic Apples are harmless, but there is certainly reason to suspect that they may be harmful to humans, wildlife, and the soil environment.  Urge the USDA to reject approval of the Arctic Apple.  The unknown risks far outweigh the cosmetic value of an apple that doesn’t brown when sliced... http://www.cornucopia.org/2013/12/crushed-nutsrotten-apples-pasteurized-nuts-gmo-apples-tell-fda-usda/

▶ A RACE TO SAVE THE APPLE AND ORANGE BY ALTERING ITS DNA

Growers turned to genetics in hopes of building a tougher orange tree. But what intervention would the public accept?

The idea of eating plants and animals whose DNA has been manipulated in a laboratory — called genetically modified organisms, or G.M.O.’s — still spooks many people. Critics worry that such crops carry risks not yet detected, and distrust the big agrochemical companies that have produced the few in wide use. And hostility toward the technology, long ingrained in Europe, has deepened recently among Americans as organic food advocates, environmentalists and others have made opposition to it a pillar of a growing movement for healthier and ethical food choices.... http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/28/science/a-race-to-save-the-orange-by-altering-its-dna.html?ref=science&_r=0

 The Monsanto company has forged a new partnership with Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company whose primary focus seems to be on figuring out how to best crack the genetic code so as to manipulate the way genes inherently express themselves. And based on the agreement the two companies have made publicly with one another, it appears as though Monsanto is planning to utilize Alnylam's proprietary gene-silencing technologies in its emerging agricultural pursuits, which will likely spawn a whole new category of problems for humanity and the planet at large.

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. ...

The Curse of Industrial Farm Fertilizers and Runoff

The Curse of Industrial Farm Fertilizers and Runoff | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

MAY 2013 National Geographic

▶  OUR FERTILIZED WORLD

If we don’t watch out, agriculture could destroy our planet. Here’s how to grow all the food we need with fewer chemicals.

N. Nitrogen. Atomic number seven. Unnoticed, untasted, it nevertheless fills our stomachs. It is the engine of agriculture, the key to plenty in our crowded, hungry world.

Enter modern chemistry. Giant factories capture inert nitrogen gas from the vast stores in our atmosphere and force it into a chemical union with the hydrogen in natural gas, creating the reactive compounds that plants crave. That nitrogen fertilizer—more than a hundred million tons applied worldwide every year—fuels bountiful harvests.

Yet this modern miracle exacts a price. Runaway nitrogen is suffocating wildlife in lakes and estuaries, contaminating groundwater, and even warming the globe’s climate. As a hungry world looks ahead to billions more mouths needing nitrogen-rich protein, how much clean water and air will survive our demand for fertile fields?... http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2013/05/fertilized-world/charles-text

Earth Policy Institute, January 08, 2014
▶  MANY COUNTRIES REACHING DIMINISHING RETURNS IN INDUSTRIAL FERTILIZER USE. Despite this U.S. advantage in fertilizer use efficiency over China, over-application poses serious pollution problems in both countries. Fertilizer runoff from the U.S. Corn Belt, for example, contributes heavily to an annual oxygen-starved “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico—an area where sea life cannot exist, which in some years grows to the size of New Jersey. http://www.earthpolicy.org/data_highlights/2014/highlights43

Report from the Pew Charitable Trusts on the chicken industry. Nitrogen and phosphorous runoff from agricultural activity is a major source of water pollution in many parts of the country. In the Chesapeake Bay watershed, half of the phosphorous and 40 percent of the excess nitrogen result from agricultural runoff, leading to algae blooms and destructive conditions for the bay’s legendary fish, oysters, and crabs... http://grist.org/food/poultry-matter-what-to-do-with-all-that-chicken-shit/

Knitting together federal energy, farm and environmental policies, the film makes a compelling case for the revamping of US agricultural policy.  Through beautiful photography and inspiring narrative, the film puts deliberate emphasis on solutions and provides a hopeful blueprint for progress and positive change... http://www.rememberthispoint.com/?p=212

-▶  BIO-ETHANOL FUEL: THE SECRET DIRTY COST OF OBAMA'S GREEN POWER PUSH.  Five million acres of land set aside for conservation — more than Yellowstone, Everglades and Yosemite National Parks combined — have vanished on Obama’s watch. Landowners filled in wetlands. They plowed into pristine prairies, releasing carbon dioxide that had been locked in the soil. Sprayers pumped out billions of pounds of fertilizer, some of which seeped into drinking water, contaminated rivers and worsened the huge dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico where marine life can’t survive. ... 15 million more acres of corn were planted last year than before the ethanol boom http://www.gazettenet.com/home/9190243-95/the-secret-dirty-cost-of-obamas-green-power-push

Consequently our food production system is responsible for accelerating the rate of destruction of the very ecosystems we are reliant upon in order to maintain our delicate global environmental equilibrium.

We cut and clear the lungs of the world, our tropical rainforests, to feed livestock or grow dishonestly named "biofuels". We bulldoze natural filtration systems and the nurseries for life like wetlands and mangrove swamps to produce luxury foods for obese populations. http://allafrica.com/stories/201401071158.html?viewall=1

Benny Haoxiang Liang's curator insight, December 11, 2013 5:47 PM

The econimic contrast between Africa, the United States, and China is staggering.  From using by far excessive amounts of fertilizer in China, measured in hundreds of pounds per acre, to Africa, where the amount used is measured in handfuls.  Overuse of fertilizer is an issue that definitely needs to be addressed.  Algal blooms flowing down rivers have the potential to cripple the economies of sea-driven towns.

                                                  THE STORY

               THE TRUTH ABOUT NESTLE'S BUSINESS WITH WATER

To be able to sell and make money from water, you first have to own it. The Swiss film "Bottled Life" documents the booming business with bottled water, by focusing on the global leader in this lucrative multi-billion dollar market – namely, the Nestlé corporation in Switzerland. Nestlé currently controls more than 70% of the world's bottled water brands  http://www.bottledlifefilm.com/index.php/the-story.html AND  http://en.bottledlife.tv/

 

 Story of Stuff

- ▶ NESTLE POLAND SPRING BOTTLED WATER. The people who live in Fryeburg, Maine can only access their local spring water by buying it in a plastic bottle. That’s because this small town’s spring water is currently controlled by Nestlé, and Nestlé wants to lock up its control over the town’s water with a massive 45-year contract -- children in the town will be grandparents before they are able to challenge it. http://act.storyofstuff.org/page/s/nestle-poland-spring-bottled-water

in order to sell and make money off from water, you have to own water. since the population is growing water is becoming scarce. the nestle corporation owns more than 70% of bottled water brand.

In the last 30 years, coastal resources such as mangroves, coral reefs and fishery resources have become depleted on a large scale. For example, more than 60 per cent of Asia’s mangroves have already been converted to aquaculture farms (ESCAP and ADB, 2000). The region is losing its resource bases to support people’s livelihoods and sustain future economic development.  http://www.unescobkk.org/news/article/marine-scientists-alarmed-about-increasing-threats-to-ocean-ecosystems/

-▶  Not so fast. The FDA says the fish is just as safe to eat as conventional salmon—though you can count me among those who don’t look to that troubled agency (see “The FDA is Out to Lunch,” Winter 2013) for the last word on food safety. But the potential threats to the oceans are significant, and the FDA doesn’t acknowledge them. More troublingly, the agency seems content to leapfrog over the entire process for determining whether those threats exist in the first place. Given the far-reaching impact this salmon could have on our natural ecosystems and global seafood supply, fish scientists and food advocates make a strong case for closer scrutiny.... http://www.onearth.org/articles/2013/04/the-fda-weighs-approval-of-genetically-modified-salmon

pdjmoo's insight:

MORE, BIGGER, FASTER IS DESTROYING OUR PLANET.

Subsidized corporate fishing fleets have almost emptied our oceans, risking a complete ecosystem collapse.  Just as the monocrop big agricultural industry is doing to our land.

Aside from anything else, these large fish will be crammed into containers, where use of pesticides and antibiotics will be required due to such close quarters.  Fish were meant to swim freely in the ocean as part of the great ecosystem, digesting the natural nutrients and food, not confined to concentration pens with nowhere to swim, being fed unnatural food in a stationary environment.  And then there is the genetically engineered issue.   We need to take steps to restore our oceans (and planet) to health and abundance vs using technological fixes to allow us to keep on destroying our planet.  We must maintain healthy ecosystems for the benefit of all life on the planet.

Is it possible to be a profitable restaurant chain and still live up to your goal of serving "food with integrity" to an ever expanding customer base? Those who decry the dismal state of modern farming practices will say it's not.

But apples treated with diphenylamine (DPA), a substance which keeps them from turning brown for months at a time when they are kept in storage, is now a sore spot for importers of American apples http://www.nationofchange.org/reason-europe-bans-american-apples-1403109800

▶ SPREAD OF GM CROPS ILLEGALLY OUT OF CONTROL IN MANY COUNTRIES. Testbiotech published the first global overview showing how genetically engineered plants (GM crops) such as maize, rice, cotton, oilseed rape, bentgrass and poplar trees are spreading uncontrollably. This is happening in regions and countries such as the USA and Canada, Middle America, Japan, China, Australia and Europe. In many cases, the plants have escaped far beyond the fields into the environment. In some regions, the transgenes have already moved into populations of wild relatives.... http://sustainablepulse.com/2013/11/12/spread-of-gm-crops-out-of-control-in-many-countries-breaking-news/#.UoLV-o3piRQ

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.

Tragically, we now have a report from the Intelligence Bureau that promotes the very foreign interests that are threatening our seed and food sovereignty, the livelihood of our farmers and the health of our citizens. The IB report, which was commissioned by the UPA government but submitted to the newly elected NDA government, blindly promotes genetically-modified organisms (GMOs).

▶ ETHIOPIA SEED BANK'S UNDER THREAT BY G8 DEMAND TO CHANGE SEED LAWS TO FAVOR INDUSTRIAL AGRICULTURE. 

A new push to commercialise agriculture in Africa could put the future of the continent's diverse, indigenous seeds at risk. Critics say this could, in effect, criminalise farmers' traditional practices of saving and exchanging their seeds, while allowing corporations and those who can afford the registration process to capture the market.

  Regassa says the "indiscriminate push of technology and inputs" by industrial farming schemes and their supporters has proved costly for farmers and needs to be challenged. Private investment in seeds is one of the stated indicators of success for the G8's landmark agriculture and poverty plan in Ethiopia. Under the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, Ethiopia is to change its seed law and policies to increase and incentivise private investment in the development, multiplication and distribution of seeds.

  This could spell disaster for small farmers, says Million Belay, co-ordinator of the Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa. "It clearly puts seed production and distribution in the hands of companies … Yes, agriculture needs investment, but that shouldn't be used as an excuse to bring greater control over farmers' lives."

April 23, 2013 - The South African Civil Society Information Service

▶   IS AFRICA ABOUT TO LOSE THE RIGHT TO HER SEED?

Seed and the control of seed lies at the heart of agriculture. In Africa around 80% of seed comes from local and community saved seed resources. This seed is adapted to local conditions. It forms an integral part of community food security and agricultural integrity. This entire traditional system is now under threat.

A broad front of commercial interests, aided and abetted by the World Bank, the American Seed Association and government agencies, along with front groups, academics and so-called philanthropists, are endeavouring to alienate this crucial resource. The international seed industry, owned by massive multinational pesticide companies involved in promoting hybrid and genetically modified (GM) seed, is both a primary beneficiary and protagonist of this thrust. While the motivation is ostensibly to assist the development of African agriculture, the impacts will be widespread and dire. http://www.sacsis.org.za/site/article/1638

▶   THE SEEDS OF SECURITY - MAINTAINING GENETIC DIVERSITY OF OUR FOOD. By importing seeds designed from other climates, we lose the security represented by heritage crops.

Preserving heritage crops has become an important environmental aim for a number of reasons. On one hand, creating a food system that's as local as possible reduces the carbon footprint of our food. But perhaps the most important need to preserve heritage seeds is to maintain the genetic diversity of our food, which has dropped to just 20 to 30 major varieties feeding the majority of the world's population.

Relying on a just a few staple crops makes our food supply more vulnerable to a whole range of potential threats, from disease to drought to pest infestations to climate change...http://modernfarmer.com/2013/10/weaning-canada-foreign-seed-dependence/

pdjmoo's insight:

There’s nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe oil, the rice, the cauliflower. Once they have established the norm: that seed can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on them for every seed we grow of every crop we grow. If they control the seed, they control the food supply, they know it — it’s strategic.  Now they are genetically engineering our trees, fish, meat, and all food... can this unrelenting, unregulated, unlabeled, juggernaut be paused until we have sufficient legitimate independently-funded peer-reviewed scientific studies that guarantee that neither human nor environmental health will be devastatingly impacted in either the short or long-term?  We're rushing these gmo's to market so fast there is no time to seriously determine their pros and cons, without the gigantic biotech industry's pr machine bombarding us with glowing stories of "feed the world" "sustainable" "green" while the attending lashings of the patented pesticides and chemicals needed to grow these crops are destroying our soil, waterways and beneficial insects and ecosystems. 
And if these inserted genes are harmful to wildlife, what are they doing to the human body as we ingest them into a chemical bodily system not designed to assimulate these changes...cancer, obesity, diabetes rise has a direct timing to the mass release of gmos into our processed foods.

ESSAY: Ecology Is the Meaning of Life: Embracing A Sense of "Enoughness" | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

From www.ecoearth.info- October 21, 1:00 AM

EcoEarth.Info is a portal and search engine that promotes environmental sustainability public policy; including climate, forests, water and oceans.

 

Dr. Glen Barry, Ocober 20, 2013

The natural Earth is a marvel – a complex coupling of species within ecosystems, whereby life begets life.

Ecology is far more than the study of life and its environment. The word is used here as a synonym for ecosystems – the vibrant connections that emerge between species across scales, which cumulatively make life on Earth possible.

Nature is far, far more than pretty plants and animals. Ecosystems make Earth habitable, providing water, food, air, shelter, and more – everything that we need and desire to live well. In naturally evolved ecosystems, from genes to individual organisms and species, to ecosystems and everything else in between, each living being present fulfills a niche which sustains itself, its neighbors, and the whole.

All species uniquely express evolutionary brilliance and have a purpose, a reason for being, a right to exist, and are necessary to maintain life’s full potential. From the lowly worm to soaring eagles, to the human race – all naturally evolved life has value and relies upon all the rest. Even seemingly noxious disease organisms and man-eating predators have a role to play in maintaining ecological balance.

Humankind’s demand for resources and growth overwhelms nature, our steady diminishment of ecosystems abruptly changes climate, and this is collapsing the biosphere. Global ecosystems – water, air, food, forests, oceans, wetlands, and more – are collapsing and dying under the burden of human industrial and population growth.... http://www.ecoearth.info/blog/2013/10/essay_ecology_is_the_meaning_o.asp

The Global Chemical Biotech Cartel - An unprecedented power over world agriculture and human health | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

 Six multinational companies dominate the agricultural input market, and they’re in cahoots. When a handful of corporations own the world’s seed, pesticide and biotech industries, they control the fate of food and farming.

Between them, Monsanto, Dow, BASF, Bayer, Syngenta and DuPont control the global seed, pesticide and agricultural biotechnology markets. This kind of historically unprecedented power over world agriculture enables them to:

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, October 25, 2013 4:35 AM

I could not explain it better. "Six multinational companies dominate the agricultural input market, and they are in cahoots. When a handful of corporations own the world’s seed, pesticide and biotech industries, they control the fate of food and farming.

Between them, Monsanto, Dow, BASF, Bayer, Syngenta and DuPont control the global seed, pesticide and agricultural biotechnology markets."

Keeping medicines under patent for longer means paying more for drugs. But who would bear this cost?

 - ▶  CHINA CLONING PIGS ON AN 'INDUSTRIAL SCALE - CLONE UPON CLONE UPON CLONE -The scale of ambition is staggering. BGI is not only the world's largest centre for cloning pigs - it's also the world's largest centre for gene sequencing. In neighbouring buildings, there are rows of gene sequencers - machines the size of fridges operating 24 hours a day crunching through the codes for life.

To illustrate the scale of this operation, Europe's largest gene sequencing centre is the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute near Cambridge. It has 30 machines. BGI has 156 and has even bought an American company that makes them. BGI's chief executive, Wang Jun, tells me how they need the technology to develop ever FASTER, CHEAPER ways of reading genes.

Today our food comes from across the world. More importantly, it is often produced in highly destructive ways, at the lowest possible cost.

Consequently our food production system is responsible for accelerating the rate of destruction of the very ecosystems we are reliant upon in order to maintain our delicate global environmental equilibrium.

We cut and clear the lungs of the world, our tropical rainforests, to feed livestock or grow dishonestly named "biofuels". We bulldoze natural filtration systems and the nurseries for life like wetlands and mangrove swamps to produce luxury foods for obese populations. http://allafrica.com/stories/201401071158.html?viewall=1

...especially in the medical patient context,” Raber said. “These are people that are immunocompromised, they're undergoing chemotherapy, they're very sick with antibacterial loads.

Christina Bryant's curator insight, April 7, 2:03 AM

This article speaks about how Colorado, particularly Denver, believes that there will be a marijuana shortage now that marijuana has been legalized. This article goes into depth about how there will be a shortage in the short run, but eventually the supply and demand should come to an equilibrium.

October 10, 2012 Mother Jones, Tom Philpott

- ▶ HOW NOT TO "FEED THE WORLD"

 A blistering new Oxfam report debunks the theory that export crops are the best use of land in the developing world.

This idea dominates the marketing material of giant agrichemical firms like Monsanto. "In order to feed the world's growing population, farmers must produce more food in the next fifty years than they have in the past 10,000 years combined"...

The globe's farms are already producing enough food to feed 12 billion people—twice the current population and a third again more than the peak of 9 billion expected to be reached in 2050. Yet at least 925 million people lack access to enough to eat. What causes hunger isn't insufficient crop yields but rather people's economic relationships to food: whether they have access to land to grow it, or sufficient income to buy it. http://www.motherjones.com/tom-philpott/2012/10/want-feed-world-first-stop-land-grabs

 ▶ GIVING GENEROUSLY, WORLD FOOD PROGRAMME

Last year, the WFP helped to feed over 90m people in 80 different countries. But the way it distributes food relief has been changing. In the 1960s, the organisation’s aid programmes for the developing world focussed on the distribution of food staples, often bought in developed countries, directly to the poor. Later, it was discovered that sourcing food more locally tended to be less disruptive to the local economy. Free distribution of food imported from elsewhere can undercut local food markets and cause more fundamental economic problems to occur. Buying more of it locally, it was found, tended to help farmers in the region more in the medium term.http://www.economist.com/blogs/freeexchange/2014/03/world-food-programme

This documentary looks at the potential hazards caused by factory farms in the United States, particularly by waste disposal. Beginning with a history of the American food system, River of Waste shows its evolution to large-scale corporate farms where pollution and use of growth hormones threaten both individual health and the future of our planet....http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/river-waste/

- ▶  SCIENTIST FRUSTRATED BY MASSIVE FACTORY FARM WASTE, THREATENING BOTH HUMAN AND ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH: Despite a growing body of evidence that shows the environmental and health consequences of intensive livestock operations, Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) continue to pop up on the landscape.
   In Kewaunee County, where cows outnumber humans by more than three to one, and where the porous karst topography cannot possibly support the massive amounts of animal waste that the industrial farms produce, citizens have been fighting an uphill battle to have their concerns heard. 

Professor Lawrence said.

              AND WE HUMANS EAT THESE TOXIC PLANTS TOO !!!

Neonicotinoids are commonly used pesticides in agriculture. More than 140 crops in the country, including corn, soy, wheat and canola seeds, are treated with neonicotinoids. They're also some of the most damaging pesticides to bees. Taken up through roots and leaves, the pesticides weave their way throughout an entire plant, eventually reaching the nectar on which bees feed. At high levels of exposure, neonicotinoids kill bees by attacking their nervous systems. Lower levels of the pesticide can impair bees' foraging and navigating abilities, disrupt their memory, and suppress their immune systems....http://www.nationaljournal.com/domesticpolicy/are-your-store-bought-plants-killing-bees-20140625

-▶MINNESOTA PASSES BILL TO LABEL GARDEN PLANTS FOR POLLINATORS. Under the bill passed by Minnesota’s House and Senate last week, plants may not be labeled as beneficial to pollinators if they have been treated with detectible levels of systemic insecticides.

     Bees and beekeepers are in dire need of protection from the effects of systemic neonicotinoid pesticides. Neonicotinoids are a relatively new class of insecticides that share a common mode of action that affect the central nervous system of insects, resulting in paralysis and death. They include imidacloprid, acetamiprid, clothianidin, dinotefuran, nithiazine, thiacloprid and thiamethoxam. Currently, neonicotinoid insecticides are the most widely used class of insecticides in the world and comprise about 25% of the global agrichemical market.

                       GMO GRASS: COMING TO A LAWN NEAR YOU

                   WITH ALL THEIR ATTENDING TOXIC PESTICIDES

                                 Nation of Change, May 25, 2014

Monsanto and Scotts have begun testing the first genetically engineered (GE) grass, intended for both consumer and commercial use. Scotts Roundup-Ready Kentucky Bluegrass, genetically engineered to withstand massive amounts of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, is unregulated, will not be labeled “GMO” (genetically modified organisms), and because of the ease with which grass spreads, could in short order contaminate lawns, parks, golf courses and pastures everywhere. Because Roundup will kill everything except the grass engineered to stand up to it, lawns all over the country will be green, lush—and toxic. And you won’t know it. http://www.nationofchange.org/gmo-grass-coming-lawn-near-you-1401027434

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

                                                NEONICOTINOIDS

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

 

 A growing body of science has implicated neonicotinoids (neonics), which are used in agriculture and also for cosmetic purposes on garden plants, as a key factor in recent global bee die-offs. Beekeepers across the country reported losses of 40-90 percent of their bees last winter. The European Union is set to suspend the use of three neonic pesticides later this year, after a scientific review by European Food Safety Authority found that neonicotinoids pose an unacceptably high risk to bees.
