MEATONOMICS: The Dirty Truth About Cheap Meat

MEATONOMICS: The Dirty Truth About Cheap Meat | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it


                                             MEATONOMICS:

Few consumers are aware of the economic forces behind the production of meat, fish, eggs, and dairy.  Yet omnivore and herbivore alike, the forces of meatonomics affect us in many ways.

▶  BIG BEEF IS TAXED FOR PRIVATE LOBBYISTS

When you buy a Big Mac or a T-bone, a portion of the cost is a tax on beef, the proceeds from which the government hands over to a private trade group called the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. The NCBA in turn uses this public money to buy ads encouraging you to eat more beef, while also lobbying to derail animal rights and other agricultural reform activists, defeat meat labeling requirements, and defend the ongoing consolidation of the industry... http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/magazine/january_february_2014/features/big_beef048356.php

- ▶  WHY CHEAP MEAT COSTS THE EARTH - THE MORAL COSTS
In the rich world, each of us consumes or uses 30 or more animals a year (the bulk – 52 of the 59 billion – are chickens). We don't, in the nutritional sense, need these animals to feed us – certainly not in those numbers. Yet, in order to eat them at an acceptable price we have to imprison them, alter them genetically and chemically, and kill them. We have moved inexorably into ever greyer ethical territory. Any planning for a food future that still envisages using animal products and meat must debate the "moral cost" http://allanimalrights.org/News-834-Why-cheap-meat-costs-the-Earth

There are problems with this kind of consolidation...“When all the power is so centralized in these behemoths, they end up writing their own rules in Congress and fighting the reforms to protect consumers and farmers”...

When the Obama administration sought to reform the animal farming industry, many farmers, some visibly frightened, risked their livelihoods by speaking publicly about abuses. But industry squelched that attempt.

Now, the industry lobbyists are working to reduce the number of inspectors in slaughterhouses, while speeding up the kill and processing lines.

The other end of the pipe goes into a bag fitted on the cow’s back. The captured gas, which is basically the same natural gas that frackers and other drillers mine out of the ground, can be burned to produce energy. That releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere instead of the methane, which is a far more potent greenhouse gas.

                              A RIVER OF WASTE - Documentary -

Exposes a huge health and environmental scandal in our modern industrial system of meat and poultry production. 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. "You go up against very politically powerful, influential groups whose vested interests are in discrediting the data or offering counter arguments of economic necessity, or it will kill jobs if you abide by the Clean Water Act or Clean Air Acts, dozens of different arguments that I've seen. http://www.ppulse.com/Articles-Headlines-c-2014-04-10-114424.114136-Scientists-Frustrated-by-Factory-Farms.htm

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

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

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/

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

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).

May 3, 2013 - DR. VANDANA SHIVA

 ▶ BIOTECHNOLOGY REGULATORY AUTHORITY OF INDIA (BRAI) Bill 2013 By Dr Vandana Shiva

 Immediately after the then Minister of environment Jairam Ramesh announced a moratorium on BT Brinjal, a Biotechnology Regulatory Authority of India (BRAI) suddenly emerged . BRAI could not be passed in 2010 and 2011 because of objections by citizens and parliament, but it has surfaced again as a 2013 Bill.

While it is presented as a Biotechnology Regulation Act, it is in fact a Biotechnology Deregulation Act, designed to dismantle the existing Biosafety regulation. That is why ,in the area of Food and Agriculture it can be called India’s Monsanto Protection Act that gives corporations like Monsanto immunity by freeing them of courts and democratic control under our federal structure, just like the US Monsanto Protection Act through which Monsanto sneaked in section 735 under the HR 993 Act to give itself immunity.http://www.navdanya.org/blog/?p=683

Monarch butterflies are the only insect to travel thousands of miles from the cooler north to the warmth of southern regions to spend the winter. What may be most amazing about this migration is not just the distance, but the fact that it takes four generations of monarch butterflies to make the trip and that the butterflies -- four generations apart -- use the exact same trees to winter each year. ... http://www.treehugger.com/slideshows/natural-sciences/nature-blows-my-mind-multi-generation-tk-mile-monarch-butterfly-migration/#slide-top

Harvard School of Public Health’s (HSPH) Chengsheng (Alex) Lu, an associate professor of environmental exposure biology,  believes that the potential human health implications of colony collapse disorder extend beyond the drop in pollination — though that is worrisome enough — to the impact on humans of long exposure to low-level poisons like neonicotinoid pesticides...links the pesticide to the recent increase in neurological conditions in children such as autism and ADHD. http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2014/08/are-failing-bees-our-warning-sign/

WHY BANNING DANGEROUS CHEMICALS IN OUR FOOD AND ENVIRONMENT IS NOT ENOUGH. The growth in chemical production in the past 40 years has been nothing short of explosive, with global output of $171bn in 1970 (pdf) burgeoning to more than $4tn in 2010 (an increase of more than 2,000%). By 2050, the market is expected to expand further to more than $14tn (an increase of more than 250% from 2010), with the BRICS countries dominating and accounting for more than $6tn together ($4tn for China alone).  http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/2014/sep/16/banning-dangerous-chemicals-business

EDIBLE SILICON VALLEY

The connection between food and stress may be stronger than you think.

 

The diseases most commonly attributed to food—heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, depression, inflammation and obesity start the list—are without exception stress-related diseases. “Stress eating” is commonly understood to mean “eating during times of emotional stress.” But what if the food we eat contains a chemical echo of the stressful experience it recently suffered? In that case, we might be putting stress on a plate and calling it lunch.

Food writers and activists such as Michael Pollan, Alice Waters and others have drawn attention to the many harmful aspects of modern food production. Industrial cultivation and distribution put extreme stress on plants and animals that we eat. It seems that the stresses placed on food ingredients are coming back to us full circle in a perverse rendition of “you are what you eat.”... http://ediblesiliconvalley.com/2013-articles/is-stress-edible/

SOARING BEE DEATHS IN 2012 SOUND ALARM ON PESTICIDES

A mysterious malady that has been killing honeybees en masse for several years appears to have expanded drastically in the last year, wiping out 40 percent or even 50 percent of the hives needed to pollinate many of the nation’s fruits and vegetables.

A conclusive explanation so far has escaped scientists studying the ailment, colony collapse disorder, since it first surfaced around 2005. But beekeepers and some researchers say there is growing evidence that a powerful new class of pesticides known as neonicotinoids, incorporated into the plants themselves, could be an important factor.

The European Union has proposed to ban the use of neonicotinoids on crops frequented by bees. Some researchers have concluded that neonicotinoids caused extensive die-offs in Germany and France.

The Agriculture Department says a quarter of the American diet, from apples to cherries to watermelons to onions, depends on pollination by honeybees.... http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/29/science/earth/soaring-bee-deaths-in-2012-sound-alarm-on-malady.html?pagewanted=all&_r=1&;

My Thoughts:

Stress can come in many shapes or forms. It effects ones work and family life to a point where it can corrupt the mind into believing that it is worthless and therefore lead to depression. Being on the police force is one of the top 10 most stressful jobs because of the things that they see every day. PTSD is the main stresser along with heavy workload and low pay. These stresser are leading to our police for to be at a higher risk for heart attack and poorer performance on the job.

WORST BEE DIE-OFF IN 40 YEARS

Spring is in the air, and as we plant our vegetable gardens and enjoy the blossoming flowers, it’s easy to forget the small creatures that keep many of our spring favorites alive and are essential to our food supply: bees...

One out of every three bites of food you and I eat is pollinated by honeybees. In fact, bees and other pollinators are necessary for about 75 percent of our global food crops....

As you may have read in the news, these critical pollinators are in trouble, victims of Colony Collapse Disorder – or CCD, a phenomenon in which bee colonies have been mysteriously collapsing when adult bees seemingly abandon their hives...

Neonics are the fastest-growing class of synthetic pesticides in history, and the neonicotinoid imidacloprid (Bayer Crop Science's top-selling product), is currently the most widely used insecticide in the world. Neonics are used as seed treatments on more than 140 crop varieties, as well as on termites, cat and dog flea treatments, lawns, landscapes and gardens. Neonics are persistent and last for years in the soil. They permeate the entire plant and are expressed in pollen, nectar and guttation droplets (dew). And, they can’t be washed off food, meaning that we are all eating them.

What’s worse, Neonics aren’t just in use in commercial agriculture. Many of the plants and seeds we buy in nurseries across the U.S. have been pre-treated with the pesticides and at much higher doses than is used on farms – so when we plant our gardens we may unwittingly be harming bees!...http://www.foe.org/news/blog/2013-03-worst-bee-die-off-in-40-years

THE TRUE COSTS OF INDUSTRIALIZED FOOD

THE TRUE COSTS OF INDUSTRIALIZED FOOD | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

24 March, 2013 - Other Worlds

The objective of much of our industrial food system is to provide a profit to shareholders and CEOs. Coca-Cola’s advertising budget was over $2.9 billion dollars in 2010, money well spent from a stockholder’s point of view: profits that year were $11.8 billion.

The current system, however, was not built only to amass wealth. Many policymakers and supporters, historically as today, have been driven by the conviction that industrial agriculture is the best way to produce massive amounts of affordable food. And in some ways it has accomplished this. People in the U.S. spend relatively little on food – about 7 percent of their total spending, as compared to 13 percent in France, 23 percent in Mexico, and 38 percent in Vietnam.

On the buying end, it seems an irresistibly good deal, our 99¢ soda or $1.50 loaf of bread. But these prices represent just a fraction of the true costs of getting that soda and bread into our shopping bags. We pay for the hidden costs of the corporate food supply chain in multiple ways, not all of them financially.... http://www.otherworldsarepossible.org/other-worlds/true-costs-industrialized-food

pdjmoo's curator insight, April 16, 2013 5:25 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 regard for the symbiotic, interdependent health 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 1:44 PM

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.

     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. http://www.beyondpesticides.org/dailynewsblog/?p=13312

                   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

             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

Harvard School of Public Health’s (HSPH) Chengsheng (Alex) Lu, an associate professor of environmental exposure biology,  believes that the potential human health implications of colony collapse disorder extend beyond the drop in pollination — though that is worrisome enough — to the impact on humans of long exposure to low-level poisons like neonicotinoid pesticides...links the pesticide to the recent increase in neurological conditions in children such as autism and ADHD. http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2014/08/are-failing-bees-our-warning-sign/

                                            http://sco.lt/8VIcAz

 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.

WHY THE UPRISING?  Global Marches And GMO Labeling Initiatives | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

 

May 2, 2014 - CHICAGO (Reuters) -

Executives from Monsanto Co., DuPont, and Dow Chemical, among the world's largest developers of biotech crops and the chemicals used to help produce them, told Reuters this week they are putting together a campaign aimed at turning the tide on what they acknowledge is a growing public sentiment against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) used as ingredients in the nation's food supply... http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/04/25/us-usa-gmo-labeling-idUSBRE93O18S20130425

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.

The other end of the pipe goes into a bag fitted on the cow’s back. The captured gas, which is basically the same natural gas that frackers and other drillers mine out of the ground, can be burned to produce energy. That releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere instead of the methane, which is a far more potent greenhouse gas.

Pesticide/Chemical Regulation Overhaul Needed to Protect Wildlife, Ecosystems, Food Chain and Human Health

Pesticide/Chemical Regulation Overhaul Needed to Protect Wildlife, Ecosystems, Food Chain and Human Health | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

May 1, 2013 Earth Justice, San Francisco, CA — 

▶  The National Research Council today issued a report finding that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must do more to ensure that pesticides do not harm threatened and endangered fish and wildlife.

Among the report's, Assessing Risks to Endangered and Threatened Species from Pesticides recommendations are that EPA more broadly account for pesticides’ direct and indirect harm to wildlife—including harm that is not immediately lethal, and impacts to food supply and habitat—and better consider the combined effects of exposure to multiple pesticides mixing in the environment....

The report’s recommendations will help Pacific salmon populations impacted by the approximately 200 million pounds of pesticides applied on the West Coast every year.... http://earthjustice.org/news/press/2013/pesticide-regulation-overhaul-needed-to-protect-wildlife-from-pesticides

More than a dozen industrial plants now encircle the community of 500 residents, making it quite possibly the most polluted corner of the most polluted region in one of the most polluted states in the country. Now, a proposal to build the largest chemical plant of its kind in the Western Hemisphere would all but wipe Mossville off the map....But that massive plant will come with a steep environmental price. It will produce more greenhouse gases than any other facility in the state. And the project will almost certainly spell the end for the 224-year-old settlement of Mossville, a poor enclave that has been forced to play host to industrial facilities no one else wanted in their backyard. http://www.motherjones.com/environment/2014/03/sasol-mossville-louisiana

There was a huge colony collapse in Slovenia already in 2011 due to insecticide called Clothianidin which belongs to the group of neonicotinoids. Neonicotinoids are insecticides that are chemically similar to nicotine, which has been used as a pesticide since the late 1700s and acts on central nervous system of an animal which results in its death. http://www.endecocide.eu/ecocide-slovenia-bee-colony-collapse/?lang=en

LANDMARK LEGISLATION

-▶MINNESOTA PASSES BILL TO LABEL GARDEN PLANTS FOR POLLINATORSUnder 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.

pdjmoo's insight:

Everything is interconnected.  Common sense tells us that if it impacts the health of our natural world and its incredible and intricate web of life it is impacting we humans, for we depend upon a healthy natural world for our own health and wellbeing.   Nature is the key.  To restore human health, we must restore Nature's health returning to the natural demands of our environment that it needs to maintain balance and wellbeing.  The old industrial, military complex mindset has led us to this brink of planetary ecocide and we must find a new way of living on this glorious planet for the sake of all living species.

 -▶ 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/

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.

...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 RABID TACTICS OF THE BIOTECH INDUSTRY TO GAIN CONTROL OF GHANA'S FOOD SYSTEM Whose interests does Prof. Alhassan represent? Prof. Alhassan was been quoted as dismissing anti-GMO groups because, according to him, they allegedly do not have any scientific proof or knowledge to offer when it comes GMO technology. But he is wrong. Ghanaian farmers need to abhor and reject scientists laden with conflicts of interest. Monsanto and Syngenta are particularly greedy to get their hands on Ghana’s agriculture and control the seed market here.Professor Alhassan is attempting to control the information farmers and the public see and hear just like the industry he represents....

“Today, large numbers of scientists are in the employ of Big Pharma, Big Ag, and all kinds of corporations with anti-environmental and anti-social justice agendas.”(2)... Professor Alhassan is a key employee of Big Ag, and has been for his entire career....

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.

MANIPULATE AND MISLEAD:  HOW GMOs ARE INFILTRATING AFRICA The most persistent myth about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is that they are necessary to feed a growing global population. Highly effective marketing campaigns have drilled it into our heads that GMOs will produce more food on less land in an environmentally friendly manner. The mantra has been repeated so often that it is considered to be truth. Now this mantra has come to Africa, sung by the United States government and multinational corporations like Monsanto, seeking to open new markets for a product that has been rejected by so many others around the globe. http://www.commondreams.org/views/2015/02/23/manipulate-and-mislead-how-gmos-are-infiltrating-africa

CULTIVATING SANITY : BANGLADESH FARMERS TURN BACK THE CLOCK TO COMBAT CLIMATE STRESSED CROPS - Cultivation of the old varieties is expanding in part because they need almost no chemical fertiliser or pesticides - which makes them cheaper and easier to grow - and because their yields are good in tough conditions.  http://www.trust.org/item/20141126125124-0i6go
