-▶ TRANS PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP IS A TROJAN HORSE
The TPP is a Trojan horse, branded as a "free trade" agreement, but having nothing to do with fair and equitable treatment. In reality, it is precisely "a wish list of the 1% - a worldwide corporate power". [8] "Only 5 of its 29 chapters cover traditional trade matters, like tariffs or quotas." [9] "The other chapters enshrine new rights and privileges for major corporations while weakening the power of nation states to oppose them." [10] http://atimes.com/atimes/Japan/JAP-02-270913.html

-▶ TROJAN HORSE "TRADE" DEALS
---- THE PENDING TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP AND EU-EU "TRADE" DEALS. The Trans-Pacific Partnership and the US-European Union “Free Trade” Agreement are both inaccurately depicted as being helpful to ordinary Americans by virtue of liberalizing trade. Instead, they have perilous little to do with trade. They are both intended to make the world more lucrative for major corporations by weakening regulations and by strengthening intellectual property laws. The TPP has an additional wrinkle of being an “everybody but China” deal, intended to strengthen ties among nations who will then be presumed allies of America in its efforts to contain China… http://www.nakedcapitalism.com/2013/08/how-the-pending-trans-pacific-partnership-and-eu-us-trade-deals-will-gut-national-regulations-hurt-budgets-and-undermine-sovereignity.html

MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS' HUNGER GAMES

The UK government is yet again undermining grassroots poverty alleviation by channelling UK aid towards huge agribusiness. The Hunger Games, a report recently published by War on Want, criticises the Department for International Development (DfID) for working with the ‘who’s who’ of agrochemical and GM seed companies including Monsanto, Unilever and Syngenta.

   In coalition with these companies, DfID is funding dodgy agricultural initiatives such as the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA). This initiative in particular seeks to “trigger a uniquely African green revolution” by promoting networks of GM seed and agrochemical providers to small farmers.... http://www.wdm.org.uk/multinational-corporations/hunger-games

INTERNATIONAL FOOD AID: DUPONT, MONSANTO AND OBAMA VERSUS THE WORLD'S FAMILY FARMERS http://sco.lt/7IhzBB


 The Ecologist, July 27, 2014

OBAMA FOOD AID RAVAGES THIRD WORLD FARMERS. The US taxpayers who finance foreign food aid surely believe they are feeding starving people, writes James Bovard. But the truth is the reverse - it is undermining indigenous agriculture in recipient countries - creating famine and chronic malnutrition, while sabotaging self-sufficiency. http://www.theecologist.org/News/news_analysis/2494069/obama_food_aid_ravages_third_world_farmers.html

 

Pambazuka -Voices for Freedom and Justice in Africa

▶ HOW COMPANIES FRAME ISSUES OF FOOD AND GLOBAL HUNGER FOR THEIR OWN SELF-INTEREST AND BOTTOMLINE PROFITS

There is a new, but deceptive, foreign drive to end hunger in Africa through large-scale agribusiness. Yet helping poor households in rural Africa feed themselves in an affordable manner means introducing low-cost, sustainable enhancements to farming.

History is riddled with examples of the poor dying of hunger when food was plentiful. Classic amongst these is the famine which wracked the West African Sahel during the early 1970s. While people were dying of hunger in Senegal, Mali and Niger, peanuts — a key sauce ingredient and source of protein across the region — were being exported to Europe....

...The rise of philanthrocapitalism in the US, where former and current business leaders, through the strength of their foundations, have increasingly come to influence the shape and direction of US international development programmes. Central to the philanthrocapitalist worldview is a belief that private enterprise is the fundamental agent of progressive change and that business acumen trumps other forms of expertise... http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/85291

THE NEW SCRAMBLE FOR AFRICA : INTERACTIVE INFOGRAPHIC

Around the early 1900s the European colonial powers built railways to connect the interior of Africa to the ports. They used this infrastructure to export food and minerals out of Africa to feed the industrial revolution in Europe. Over a hundred years later it’s happening all over again. Take a look at our latest infographic to see how.

Several NGOs and civil society organisations say this solution focuses too heavily on private investment and is the wrong solution to a complex and growing hunger crisis. Among the concerns is that smallholder farmers could be pushed out of their land to make way for large, powerful international corporations. - See more at: http://farmlandgrab.org/post/view/22241#sthash.qbAs02Ik.dpuf Will the New Alliance help Africa's poor? http://ow.ly/msJax

pdjmoo's insight:

Let's See:  Monsanto owns the patents and have the lock on for the global seed supply for our food; they own the massive amounts of pesticides required for these genetically engineered seeds; they have entered the pharmaceutical business for patents on drugs that make billions after the gmo food system has created a global epidemic of obesity, diabetes and . They now own the most advanced system for weather data in concert with the Pentagon with coming climate change and the water rights wars; they have their representatives in all levels of the USA Government; the billionaire Bill Gates is a trojan horse for them as a "philanthropic organization" both within and without government ; the USA Aid and Trade Departments manipulate (blackmail) governments to take GMO Seeds and Agriculture in their Aid and Trade Programs....it all starts to add up like Monsanto is pretty much in charge of governments and our food and health.

Seeds of Sovereignty shares the stories of African communities embarking on a journey to revive their traditional seed diversity, and take back control over their food systems. Forging a path toward a socially just, ecologically sane and sovereign future, they are courageously challenging the corporate, profit driven model of agriculture imposed upon them... http://www.seedsoffreedom.info/more-films/seeds-sovereignty/

 

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

  MAYAN PEOPLE'S MOVEMENT DEFEATS MONSANTO LAW IN GUATEMALA. There was a great risk that the Monsanto Law would have made criminals of already repressed small farmers who are just trying to make ends meet and doing what they have done for generations – cultivating corn and black beans for their own consumption. The Monsanto Law meant that they would not have been able to grow and harvest anything that originates from natural seeds. Farmers would be breaking the laws if these natural seeds had been mixed with patented seeds from other crops as a result of pollination or wind, unless they had had a license for the patented seed from a transnational corporation like Monsanto. .. The Monsanto Law would have given exclusivity on patented seeds to a handful of transnational companies....the Mayan people – or actually most people – in Guatemala do not agree with a policy of treating nature like a commodity to be sold off piece by piece, ...http://pambazuka.net/en/category/features/92994

▶   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/

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... http://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2014/feb/19/ethiopia-seed-bank-preserving-diversity-under-threat-g8-new-alliance

Land Rush looks at how multinational agribusiness is threatening African farmers' ability to feed their communities.http://www.itvs.org/films/land-rush

    How do you feed the world? 75% of Mali's population are farmers, but rich foreign corporations are leasing Mali's land in order to turn large areas into American-style agribusiness monoculture mechanized  farms for their own profit and export, destroying and changing ecosystems and the culture. Many Malian peasants do not welcome these efforts, seeing them as yet another manifestation of imperialism threatening their ability to feed themselves.  As Mali experiences a military coup, the developers are scared off but can Mali's farmers combat food shortages and escape poverty on their own terms?

Africa produces 10 percent less food than it did in 1960.  In Mali, an American plan for a vast genetically engineered sugar cane (biofuel) operation on the banks of the Niger River threatens small-scale native rice farmers who have fed their communities for generations.... http://video.pbs.org/video/2296680847

pdjmoo's curator insight, March 30, 2013 11:33 PM

When profits overide local culture, destroy ecosystems and environment for the western ideal of monoculture agriculture, owned by multi-nationals, displacing local indigenous peoples, it is time to draw a line.

In this instance, in Mali, the sugar cane is for export, not for local food supply and the indigenous peoples will be doomed to working laborers in an environment of big agriculture for little money.  Creating dependency on foreign aid and hand-outs for food for survival while foreign entities profit greatly is NOT where we should be going for the future.

Money is not the currency for many cultures, it is producing food locally for themselves and their community and we have no right to impose our outside mega gmo agriculture on anyone, destroying their connection to their lands and livelihoods.

With the USA Government co-opted by the mega corporations, Real change in the broken food system needs to be brought about by people - the farmers, producers, consumers and communities who want equal access to healthy food and a healthy environment.

Bill Gates' Excellent African Adventure: A Tale of Technocratic Agroindustrial Philanthrocapitalism

Bill Gates' Excellent African Adventure: A Tale of Technocratic Agroindustrial Philanthrocapitalism | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

GeneWatch: Council for Responsible Genetics by Phil Bereano, JD, professor emeritus at the University of Washington and a co-founder of the Council for Responsible Genetics.

 

From 2009 to 2011, Bill Gates' foundation spent $478,302,627 to influence African agricultural development. Adding in the value of agricultural grants going to multiple regions and those for 2012, the Foundation's outlay to influence African agriculture is around $1 billion. Of course, Gates is not an African, not a scholar of Africa, not a farmer, and not a development expert. But he is a very rich man, and he knows how he wants to remake the world.

Gates' support for ag development strategies favors industrial, high-tech, capitalist market approaches. In particular, his support for genetically engineered crops as a solution for world hunger is of concern to those of us - in Africa and the U.S. - involved in promoting sustainable, equitable agricultural policies.

First, his technocratic ideology runs counter to the best informed science.... http://www.councilforresponsiblegenetics.org/GeneWatch/GeneWatchPage.aspx?pageId=459

Gene Giants Seek "Philanthrogopoly" -  6 multinational Gene Giants control the direction of agriculture worldwide. | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

March 7, 2013 - ETC GROUP

A new report by the ETC Group exposes how six multinational biotechnology companies control agriculture research globally, and what they seek to do to placate anti-trust regulators and soften opposition to GMOs.

 

A report released by ETC Group warns that 6 multinational Gene Giants control the current priorities and future direction of agriculture research worldwide. Syngenta, Bayer, BASF, Dow, Monsanto and DuPont control 59.8 % of commercial seeds and 76.1 % of agrochemicals. The same 6 companies account for at least 76 % of all private sector R&D in these two sectors.

Amid unprecedented corporate concentration, ETC Group’s report provides a critical look at new initiatives launched by the Gene Giants – including the false promise of cheap, post-patent GE seeds – aiming to appease antitrust regulators and pass off oligopolistic practices as acts of charity. Meanwhile, the world’s two richest men – Bill Gates and Mexico’s Carlos Slim – are teaming up with CIMMYT (the international public maize and wheat breeding center based in Mexico) to get bargain GE seeds and traits in the hands of farmers in the global South...

SCIENTISTS OFFICIALLY LINK PROCESSED FOODS TO AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE.

The modern diet of processed foods, takeaways and microwave meals could be to blame for a sharp increase in autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, alopecia, asthma and eczema.

A team of scientists from Yale University in the U.S and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, in Germany, say junk food diets could be partly to blame. “This study is the first to indicate that excess refined and processed salt may be one of the environmental factors driving the increased incidence of autoimmune diseases”, they said. http://wakeup-world.com/2014/09/04/scientists-officially-link-processed-foods-to-autoimmune-disease/

Starved of Democracy and the Fight Against Corporate 'Foodopoly'

Starved of Democracy and the Fight Against Corporate 'Foodopoly' | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

May 8, 2013 Common Dreams

Foodopoly. It’s about the corporate control of every aspect of our food system, from how what we eat is labeled to the pesticides we’re exposed to.

@WenonahHauter - Wenonah Hauter's  new book Foodopoly exposes the real culprits threatening our food system — consolidation and corporate control — which are preventing farmers from raising healthy crops and limiting the choices people can make in the grocery store.

We, the people, must reclaim our democracy. We must reestablish strong antitrust laws to begin the work of fixing our broken, corporate-controlled food system. Our food system should work for consumers and farmers, not big agricultural, processing, retail, and chemical conglomerates.

How has consolidation enabled Monsanto, Tyson, Nestle, Kraft, Cargill, McDonalds and other giant companies to write our food policy, and why is it about to get worse?

Foodopoly delves into the history of food and farm policy to explain how the food supply became so consolidated. For example, only four gigantic companies process 80 percent of the beef we eat, and only four retailers sell 50 percent of the groceries. Today, one out of every three dollars spent on groceries in the United States goes to Walmart.

The top 10 fast-food companies control 47 percent of all fast food sales. Together, these industries have commandeered local economies, and now it is clear that the era of family farmers and mom and pop stores has ended. What’s not as clear is the effect this has on our political system...

http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/05/08-7

 

GET THE FACTS - FOODOPOLY

Think you’re a savvy grocery shopper? Do the thousands of products from different brands give you all the choice you need? Turns out the average grocery store doesn’t have nearly as many choices as you think:
The top companies controlled an average of 62.8% of the sales of 100 types of groceries. In 30 categories, four or fewer companies controlled at least 75% of the sales. In six categories, the top companies sold more than 90% of the category sales, including baby formula and microwave dinners... http://www.foodopoly.org/get-the-facts/

Only four gigantic companies process 80 percent of the beef we eat.
John Lasschuit ®™'s comment, May 10, 2013 4:54 AM
Not only the beef: make it 80% of all we eat. Wheat, beans, everything.
Hannah Picton's curator insight, May 17, 2013 6:29 AM

McDonalds forms part of the current 'foodopoly' dominating the fast food industry. 'The top 10 fast-food companies control 47 percent of all fast food sales. Together, these industries have commandeered local economies, and now it is clear that the era of family farmers and mom and pop stores has ended. What’s not as clear is the effect this has on our political system.'

What effect does this have on the economy? Can these companies control control how we consume fast food?

How Not to "Feed the World"

How Not to "Feed the World" | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it


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


Biosafety Information Centre, December 01, 2014
NEW REPORT: CHANGING COURSE TO FEED THE WORLD IN 2050, The theme for this year's World Food Prize was: “The Greatest Challenge in Human History: Can We Sustainably Feed the 9 Billion People on our Planet by the Year 2050?” A report by ActionAid USA states that feeding the world is possible only if we change course, moving away from the current destructive model of industrial agriculture which has been fueled by the gross misconception that hunger is due to inadequate food production rather than the real cause: inequitable access to food and food-producing resources.
http://www.biosafety-info.net/article.php?aid=1120

ORIGINAL PDF REPORT. "Rising to the Challenge: Changing Course to Feed the World in 2050" based on a review of recent economic modeling studies by researchers at Tufts University’s Global Development and Environment Institute, finds that calls to double food production by 2050 to feed an estimated population of 9 billion are based on flawed forecasts and misleading characterizations of recent research. http://www.actionaidusa.org/sites/files/actionaid/aa_challenge_6.pdf

▶ HOW COMPANIES FRAME ISSUES OF FOOD AND GLOBAL HUNGER FOR THEIR OWN SELF-INTEREST AND BOTTOMLINE PROFITS

There is a new, but deceptive, foreign drive to end hunger in Africa through large-scale agribusiness. Yet helping poor households in rural Africa feed themselves in an affordable manner means introducing low-cost, sustainable enhancements to farming.

History is riddled with examples of the poor dying of hunger when food was plentiful. Classic amongst these is the famine which wracked the West African Sahel during the early 1970s. While people were dying of hunger in Senegal, Mali and Niger, peanuts — a key sauce ingredient and source of protein across the region — were being exported to Europe....

...The rise of philanthrocapitalism in the US, where former and current business leaders, through the strength of their foundations, have increasingly come to influence the shape and direction of US international development programmes. Central to the philanthrocapitalist worldview is a belief that private enterprise is the fundamental agent of progressive change and that business acumen trumps other forms of expertise... http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/85291

▶  UNITED STATES WASTES BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO SHIP FOOD AID. The United States spent more money to ship, handle and store food aid than on the actual food. A total of $17.9 billion was spent on food aid between 2003 and 2012 by the United States. Of that total, $9.2 billion was spent on just getting the food to the people in need. A comprehensive investigation by USA Today and Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism confirms what has long been said about U.S. food aid — it is inefficient and in need of reform.  http://www.humanosphere.org/world-politics/2014/10/united-states-wastes-billions-dollars-ship-food-aid/

 ▶ 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

GMO CROPS WILL NOT FEED THE WORLD. A review article in the Agronomy for Sustainable Development journal concludes that GM crops will not only not feed the world, they are hampering efforts to sustainably feed the world by jeopardizing existing biological and genetic diversity. http://www.biosafety-info.net/article.php?aid=965

 -▶ GMO CROPS PROVEN TO BE INEFFECTIVE AT FIGHTING WORLD HUNGER. DEVOID OF NUTRITION Funded by the World Bank and United Nations, an organization was created known as the International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge, Science and Technology for Development (IAASTD). Consisting of 900 scientists and researchers, they set out to examine the complex issue of world hunger. While the issue of world hunger may be quite complex, their results were not. Quite plainly, the group found that genetically modified crops were not a meaningful solution to the problem. In other words, the expert team showed through rigorous analysis and repeated study that the claims made by Bill Gates are completely inaccurate... http://naturalsociety.com/gmo-crops-proven-to-be-ineffective-at-fighting-world-hunger/

▶ SEEDS OF THE FUTURE DIMINISHING AS MONO INDUSTRIAL AGRICULTURE DOMINATES THE WORLD. A third of the world's land area is dedicated to agriculture. Farmers' fields and pastures comprise (after the oceans) the second largest ecosystem on the planet. This vast tract has been largely transformed into sterile monoculture deserts in which all other organisms are suppressed with agrochemicals, and only the cash crop is allowed to thrive.

The amount of chemical found in nour bodies when eating the processed 'food' that is cheaply available will shock you. Many young girls are now hitting puberty at ages no one would have thought because the hormones in the milk they drink.

Wow! Wow! Wow! This is shocking indeed. So informational and so crucial. It is amazing how naive I am when it comes what I am buying and eating. This was truly eyeopening and it truly motivates me to want investigate further!

- ▶ OVERGROWTH: Every child should visit an abattoir. If you disagree, ask yourself why. What can you say about a society whose food production must be hidden from public view? In which the factory farms and slaughterhouses supplying much of our diet must be guarded like arsenals to prevent us from seeing what happens there?
The growth rate of broiler chickens has quadrupled in 50 years: they are now killed at seven weeks(2). By then they are often crippled by their weight. Animals selected for obesity cause obesity. Bred to bulge, scarcely able to move, overfed, factory farmed chickens now contain almost three times as much fat as chickens did in 1970, and just two thirds of the protein(3). Stalled pigs and feedlot cattle have undergone a similar transformation. Meat production? No, this is fat production.

Trevor Boyne's curator insight, September 24, 2013 6:32 PM

This article talked about many different things, one of the things it talked about was the new gag law. This law states that it is illegal to video tape animal farms without permission. It has been implemented in 5 states already. It also talked about the health of the animals. In the small cramped spaces the animals develop diseases, when they take antibiotics we also recieve these antibiotics. AS we keep consuming these drugs our body becomes immune so when its time for us to really need an antibiotic it might not work.

Zack Dafoe's curator insight, September 25, 2013 9:31 AM

Farmers are trying to do more to ensure animal safety in farms. Being honest about animal health is a big concern. If an animal has something wrong, the selling of the animal should contain all of the info about the animal. Honesty in the purchasing of animals is very critical. Many farms for breeding are grounds for disease. More antibiotics are being used to ensure animal safety. These animals are being consumed by humans so they are consuming the antibiotics as well so their bodies are becoming less immune to the antibiotic. Scientists suggest that antibiotic use should be limited on farms to ensure more human safety on farms.

Olivia Haltom's curator insight, December 18, 2013 9:11 AM

i think that if they didnt have anything to hide, then people would know more about what is going on.

- ▶  MONSANTO WANTS TO TURN FOOD CROPS INTO GENE-ALTERING 'DRUGS".
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.

PESTICIDE-LADEN POT: THE DANGERS OF LURKING CONTAMINANTS AND PESTICIDES WITH COMPROMISED IMMUNE SYSTEMS.  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

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 NEW SCRAMBLE FOR AFRICA : INTERACTIVE INFOGRAPHIC

Around the early 1900s the European colonial powers built railways to connect the interior of Africa to the ports. They used this infrastructure to export food and minerals out of Africa to feed the industrial revolution in Europe. Over a hundred years later it’s happening all over again. Take a look at our latest infographic to see how.

Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, February 2, 2014
LAND GRABS AND FRAGILE FOOD SYSTEMS

This paper concludes that the globalization enshrined in the free trade and investment agreements of the 1990s and 2000s have led to yet another manifestation of commercial interests trampling human rights: land grabs.
... First, globalization—more specifically, the deregulation of trade and foreign investment laws, which has greatly eased cross-border capital flows, relaxed the limits on foreign land ownership, and opened markets to agricultural imports. And second, the failures of the international trading system during the food price crisis of 2007-08, which eroded the confidence of food import–dependent countries in international markets as a reliable source of food and fed both speculative investment and investment in actual food production. This loss of confidence is compounded by climate change and the resulting destabilization of weather patterns, which has resulted in less predictable agricultural production...  http://www.iatp.org/documents/land-grabs-and-fragile-food-systems

A research team at the University of Guelph has developed a new line of transgenic Enviropigs. The new line of pigs is called the Cassie line, and it is known for passing genes on more reliably.

Though no studies indicate a food safety risk from genetically modified Enviropig pork, meat from the Enviropig is not yet available for human consumption.

Los Angeles, May 03, 2014
- ▶ USA SCIENTISTS RACE TO BIO-ENGINEER CHICKENS AND FARM ANIMALS UNDER THE GUISE OF CLIMATE CHANGE & 'FEED THE WORLD" SPIN.

                 "The idea is to create animals that are more efficient,"

The researchers are in the vanguard of food scientists, backed by millions of dollars from the U.S. federal government, racing to develop new breeds of farm animals that can "stand up to the hazards of global warming" (and keep the billion dollar corporate factory farm industry in control of our food)

   Some climate-change activists dismiss the work, which is just getting underway, as a distraction and a concession to industrial-style agriculture, which they blame for compounding the world's environmental problems. Those leading the experiments, however, say new, "heat-resistant breeds of farm animals" will be essential to feeding the world as climate change takes hold.

▶ HOW COMPANIES FRAME ISSUES OF FOOD AND GLOBAL HUNGER FOR THEIR OWN SELF-INTEREST AND BOTTOMLINE PROFITS

There is a new, but deceptive, foreign drive to end hunger in Africa through large-scale agribusiness. Yet helping poor households in rural Africa feed themselves in an affordable manner means introducing low-cost, sustainable enhancements to farming.

History is riddled with examples of the poor dying of hunger when food was plentiful. Classic amongst these is the famine which wracked the West African Sahel during the early 1970s. While people were dying of hunger in Senegal, Mali and Niger, peanuts — a key sauce ingredient and source of protein across the region — were being exported to Europe....

...The rise of philanthrocapitalism in the US, where former and current business leaders, through the strength of their foundations, have increasingly come to influence the shape and direction of US international development programmes. Central to the philanthrocapitalist worldview is a belief that private enterprise is the fundamental agent of progressive change and that business acumen trumps other forms of expertise... http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/85291

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.

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.

Three decades ago, humanity had a problem; science had a fascination; and industry had an opportunity. Our problem was injustice. The ranks of the hungry were expanding while the ranks of farmers were thinning. Meanwhile, science was fascinated by biotechnology – the idea that we could genetically engineer crops and livestock (and people) with traits that could overcome all our problems. Agribusiness saw an opportunity to extract the enormous surplus value that was laced throughout the food chain. The hugely decentralized food system held pockets of profit just crying out to be centralized.  All the biotechnology industry had to do is chase away the competition and coerce governments into surrendering control. ....http://www.etcgroup.org/content/who-owns-nature

▶ FEED THE WORLD:  FAMILY FARMERS HOLD KEYS TO AGRICULTURE IN A WARMING WORLD. Faced with global warming and a population that will swell to nine billion by 2050, a growing number of experts say that the way to feed the masses as climate change makes growing our food more difficult is to focus on family farmers, who often can barely feed themselves. ... 

   When policymakers in the developed world talk about feeding billions of extra mouths in the decades to come, it's multinational agribusinesses—which operate industrial-size farms—that usually get most of the attention.

   But in the long run, it's small-scale farmers in the developing world, using low-tech but sustainable agricultural techniques, who may be best poised to lead the way in adapting to a warmer world and ensuring the security of the global food supply. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/05/140502-climate-change-agriculture-family-farm-science/

To allow corporations to control our  factory farms and monculture crops and continue expanding, destroying health of environment and ecosystems and rivers.  Rather than stop what they're doing, this biotech gene-altering cartel will have changed nature and life within it to suit their ongoing juggernaut to control the world food supply - with or without authentic independently funded,peer-reviewed research as to both short and long-term affects on the animals, ecosystems and human health.  The growth-hormones used in our meat and poultry and pesticides/chemicals for the agricultural crops will eventually show up in the human condition, but it will be too late.  Obesity, Cancer and Diabetes is already a global epidemic wherever these GMO foods penetrate markets.  Most processed foods contain genetically engineered ingredients.

RETURNING NATURE TO NATURAL: How agroforestry schemes can improve food security

RETURNING NATURE TO NATURAL: How agroforestry schemes can improve food security | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Feb 27, 2013 - OurWorld 2.0

There is a growing push to integrate trees and shrubs with crops. The understanding of agroforestry is increasing its acceptance, use and potential for boosting food security and sustainable land use... Done well, it allows producers to make the best use of their land, can boost field crop yields, diversify income, and increase resilience to climate change... http://ourworld.unu.edu/en/how-agroforestry-schemes-can-improve-food-security-in-developing-countries/

HOW THE FOOD GIANTS HOOKED US http://www.scoop.it/t/agriculture-gmos-pesticides/p/3997618890/how-the-food-giants-hooked-us

 

 

 

pdjmoo's insight:

This is how nature was originally before man stepped in with his idea of more, faster, bigger philosophy. Biotechnology and science have altered nature and her landscape beyond recognition, destroying soil, biodiversity, ecosystem and environment in their rush for control of the global food supply.  Small farmers were gobbled up by multi-national corporations and we began eating factory farmed produce, raised and grown in un-natural ways.   But we forget that the food grown has to be marketed, processed and packaged. The result ... sickness and colonialization of developing countries through destroying their cultural diets in favor of western, which their bodies were not accommodating and destroying family livelihoods in the process.  If you want to change a culture, you change their food.
