 “WE'RE AT THE BEGINNING OF BEING ABLE TO DESIGN LIFE IN THE WAY THAT WE WANT”

 

January 12, 2013 - Science News

▶  THE FACTORY OF LIFE

Quietly, on the top floor of a nondescript commercial building overlooking Boston Harbor, the future is being born...

Ginkgo is, in essence, a 21st century factory of life. The researchers working there specialize in synthetic biology, a field that seeks to build living things from the ground up. After envisioning what they want new organisms to do, Ginkgo biologists actually grow vials full of redesigned cells. “We’re going from the place we used to be, in doing science and studying the natural world, to a place where we’re now going to be able to engineer and manipulate it,”

“This is not just — oh, we’re going to go build something that’s able to make pieces of DNA better

“We’re at the beginning of being able to design life in the way that we want,” says Pamela Silver, a biologist at Harvard Medical School and Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering"

Synthetic biology was born a little more than a decade ago, an offshoot of traditional genetic engineering but distinct in its ambitions, precision and mind-set. Instead of randomly tweaking the genetic blueprints of living organisms... http://www.sciencenews.org/view/feature/id/347263/description/Factory_of_Life

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/

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.

SHAMEFUL: Global Biotech Cartel gangs up on Africa Press urging them to promote GMO.

VibeGhana, February 7, 2013

SHAMEFUL: AFRICAN LEADERS URGED TO HARNESS BENEFITS OF BIOTECHNOLOGY TO ADDRESS FOOD SECURITY

The Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology has (OFAB) urged Africa leaders and other relevant institutions to harness the benefits of biotechnologies to UNDER THE GUISE OF promoting food security challenges on the continent...

 SUMMARY: "The media should therefore act as agents of change by working closely with scientists and policy makers to define an African agenda for biotechnology," [Mr. Daniel Otunge, Coordinator of Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology, a programme of the African Agricultural Technology Foundation] said and pointed out that if that was not done, the continent would forever be dependent on food aid from countries that had adopted innovative agricultural technologies to improve food production. Mr. Otunge tasked the Ghanaian media to frame the biotechnology debate in a manner that would improve public negative perceptions toward the technology, citing genetically modified crops as an example."

Rice is a staple diet of many of cultures, eaten every meal, every day, and often the only food in impoverished cultures. This "Golden GM Rice" creates a great danger of Vitamin A overdose causing resulting health issues as problematic as the original deficiency. There is no way to control how much Vitamin A will be ingested daily and accumulated in the body over a period of years.

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.  http://aworldchaos.wordpress.com/2013/06/17/human-genes-engineered-into-experimental-gmo-rice-being-grown-in-kansas/

 “WE'RE AT THE BEGINNING OF BEING ABLE TO DESIGN LIFE IN THE WAY THAT WE WANT”

 

 

January 12, 2013 - Science News

▶  THE FACTORY OF LIFE

Quietly, on the top floor of a nondescript commercial building overlooking Boston Harbor, the future is being born...

Ginkgo is, in essence, a 21st century factory of life. The researchers working there specialize in synthetic biology, a field that seeks to build living things from the ground up. After envisioning what they want new organisms to do, Ginkgo biologists actually grow vials full of redesigned cells. “We’re going from the place we used to be, in doing science and studying the natural world, to a place where we’re now going to be able to engineer and manipulate it,”

“This is not just — oh, we’re going to go build something that’s able to make pieces of DNA better

“We’re at the beginning of being able to design life in the way that we want,” says Pamela Silver, a biologist at Harvard Medical School and Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering"

Synthetic biology was born a little more than a decade ago, an offshoot of traditional genetic engineering but distinct in its ambitions, precision and mind-set. Instead of randomly tweaking the genetic blueprints of living organisms... http://www.sciencenews.org/view/feature/id/347263/description/Factory_of_Life

▶  CORNSTALKS EVERYWHERE BUT NOTHING ELSE, NOT EVEN A BEE

Corn farmers champion corn. Anything that might eat corn, hurt corn, bother corn, is killed. Their corn is bred to fight pests. The ground is sprayed. The stalks are sprayed again. We've erased everything else. (AND WE EAT THIS TOXIC FOOD?)

       We need to feed our planet, of course. But we also need the teeny creatures that drive all life on earth. There's something strange about a farm that intentionally creates a biological desert to produce food for one species: us. It's efficient, yes. But it's so efficient that the ants are missing, the bees are missing, and even the birds stay away. Something's not right here. Our cornfields are too quiet....  http://www.npr.org/blogs/krulwich/2012/11/29/166156242/cornstalks-everywhere-but-nothing-else-not-even-a-bee

Institute of Science in Society, September 17, 2014

GLYPHOSATE PESTICIDE EVERYWHEREIN OUR FOOD, IN OUR WATER, IN OUR SOIL How Roundup® Poisoned my Nature Reserve.

Glyphosate’s suppression of Cytochrome P450 enzymes and amino acid biosynthesis by beneficial gut microbes has led to a variety of human diseases that globally reach epidemic proportions in populations on a Western diet, including gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease [5].

Glyphosate and other pesticide residues had been contaminating our staple foods since before 2002, according to UK Defra (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) Expert Committee on Pesticide Residues in Food (PRiF) [6] and neither had our friends in Wales and in Denmark. Following the recommendations by Monsanto, farmers had been using glyphosate as herbicide throughout the crop growth cycle; and at the end they were also desiccating (drying) or ripening crops with glyphosate sprayed about 7-10 days before harvest [7]. So, some of us in Europe are receiving glyphosate residues in all our non-organic staple foods, such as bread, cereals, potatoes, pasta, pulses, rice, sugar, beer, whisky, etc.[6] and many foods from the US made from corn or soya (mostly GM). http://www.i-sis.org.uk/How_Roundup_Poisoned_My_Nature_Reserve.php

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.

     Corporate interests have hijacked African food and agricultural policy. They are behind a new green revolution for the continent that is pushing a capital-intensive approach with farms, supply chains and expanding international markets. This approach is a step backward to concepts of food security prevalent in the 1960s and 1970s. As a result, Africans will remain hungry.

     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.

Kofi Annan has joined with President Obama, Monsanto, AGRA, and the Gates foundation to promote and execute food aid that replaces bags of wheat, rice and corn (agricultural dumping) with bags of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers and genetically engineered seeds. The end result will be to starve people in Africa and feed corporations in the US and Europe....under the guise of "sustainability"... http://crossedcrocodiles.wordpress.com/2010/08/31/why-is-kofi-annan-fronting-for-monsanto-the-gmo-assault-on-africa/

African Agriculture: A contrarian view of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa

At it's just ended Africa Green Revolution Forum, held in Tanzania, AGRA pulled out all its publicity and media-influencing guns to press home the contention that they are simply pure-hearted do-gooders motivated by nothing else than what is beneficial to Africa's small scale farmers.

Why then should such a noble-sounding project still be treated with such deep suspicion by many? Is it not almost sacrilege to doubt the good intentions of Bill Gates and Kofi Annan, to accuse them of being marketing hucksters for Monsanto? ,,,

Altered Genes, Twisted Truth

Altered Genes, Twisted Truth | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
This book reveals that the biggest scientific fraud of our time does not involve change in the climate but changes to our food.

 

September 24, 2012 JUST RELEASED: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public

 

This book uncovers the biggest scientific fraud of our age. It tells the fascinating and frequently astounding story of how the massive enterprise to restructure the genetic core of the world’s food supply came into being, how it advanced by consistently violating the protocols of science, and how for more than three decades, hundreds of eminent biologists and esteemed institutions have systematically contorted the truth in order to conceal the unique risks of its products and get them onto our dinner plates...Altered Genes, Twisted Truth gives a graphic account of how this elaborate fraud was crafted and how it not only deceived the general public, but Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Barack Obama and a host of other astute and influential individuals as well. 

The book also exposes how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) became a key accomplice, in furtherance of its explicit agenda "to foster" biotechnology...Consequently, for fifteen years, America's families have been regularly ingesting a group of novel products that are not only being sold illegally, but were determined to be unduly hazardous by the FDA's scientific staff...


By the time you've finished reading this story, it will be clear that the degradation of science it documents has not only been unsavory but unprecedented – and that in no other instance have so many scientists so seriously subverted the standards they were trained to uphold, misled so many people, and imposed such magnitude of risk on both human and environmental health.

Biotechnology to invest in a four year project to develop iron-rich bananas for pregnant women in India

Biotechnology to invest in a four year project to develop iron-rich bananas for pregnant women in India | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

- ABC Radio Australia

AND WHAT IF THE BODY GETS "IRON" POISONING BY EATING TOO MUCH; OR WORSE, THE POLLON OF THESE GMO BANANAS DRIFTING TO TRADITIONAL BANANA PLANTS:

Bananas from the Australian state of Queensland could soon be "helping to save the lives of pregnant mothers in India"

THROUGH THE BACK DOOR: Bill Gates Funds Risky, Unproven, Unregulated GMO Bananas for pregnant women in India

Genetically Modified Bananas from the Australian state of Queensland could soon be "helping" to save the lives of pregnant mothers in India. (Really)

AND this is just the beginning. Bill Gates is obsessed with taking over the world food and health. He has poured tens of billions into his determination to vaccinate the whole world in cohoots with BigPharma, Biotech industries and major UN agencies. http://ow.ly/aMYnf

And GMO food is to become one of the carriers: meaning whether your body needs it or not it will enter your digestive system; and who know how these "frankenstein" crops could contaminate traditional crops, threatening a global epidemic of overdose, reactions, allergies and deaths. http://ow.ly/aMYtQ.

This decade one of Bill Gates' missions is to inject "every child in the world" with the controversial 5 in 1 vaccine http://ow.ly/aMW5y. AND NOW his wife, Melinda, has joined his crusade for "helping" women in poor countries by contraception injections again, with no independent peer review studies http://ow.ly/aMWib

AN ISSUE OF ETHICS: THERE ARE NO LAWS OR ANY ONE AGENCY GOVERNING THESE EXPERIMENTS WITH OUR LIVES. MANIPULATING OUR FOOD WITHOUT INDEPENDENT PEER REVIEWED HEALTH STUDIES FOR IMPACT ON HUMAN HEALTH OF ENVIRONMENT AND HUMAN HEALTH IS A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT

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

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...

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....

change global, act local.

Arun Shrivastava's curator insight, February 12, 2013 1:24 AM

A number of vital summary here. It is in your interest that you understand the key issues and get to the bottom of what is going on. AND TAKE ACTION.

 

The plan is to control food in such a manner that accessibility to food no more remains your right. That fundamental right has been undermined already; all that remains is a formal announcement. In India, UPA-II under Man Mohan Singh is directly responsible for this situation. That's why I have been consistently writing that this Government should be charged with treason.

 

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, February 12, 2013 5:54 AM

This is a hugely important issue.

 

The outcome of the struggle between commercial and genetically modified seeds on the one hand and the age-old tradition of farmers saving their own seed and exchanging with neighbors on the other concerns us all. 

 

Our future food security depends utterly on the second option winning over the first.

UN: Privatizing food and agricultural aid is dangerous. Obama's Africa Plan Is Wrong | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

December 11, 2012 Humanosphere
The UN’s Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, Olivier de Schutter, examines the Obama Administration’s New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, a project aimed at boosting food production in the developing world. De Schutter notes that one example of the new initiative’s approach is to have Cargill launch a large-scale project on 40,000 acres of farmland in Mozambique — which may increase crop yields but also potentially displace many poor smallholder farmers.

pdjmoo's insight:

Opportunities should not be mistaken for solutions.  "Investment" implies a financial return and often control.  "Philanthropy" and "Aid" should not be attached to profits but rather to empower and uplift populations into self independence in line with their regional ecosystems, cultural food and needs without coercion or hidden agendas by those acting as a trojan horse for big foreign business and corporate interests e.g. The Gates Foundation

The Economic Times, November 25, 2013
NOW "MUTAGENESIS" -  AS OPPOSITION TO GM CROPS GROWS, COMPANIES ARE TURNING TO "MUTANT" SEED BREEDING

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. ...

 - ▶ GATES FOUNDATION-LED GREEN BIOTECH GMO REVOLUTION PROMOTES FALSE SOLUTIONS TO HUNGER IN AFRICA

Donors controlling the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), promoted/funded by the Gates Foundation, are representing the interests of biotechnology corporations rather than African small farmers, warns Friends of the Earth International on the eve of the annual AGRA Agricultural Green Revolution Forum 2012, Arusha, Tanzania on 26-28 September....

Multi-million dollar investments from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation -a major AGRA donor- into shares in biotech corporations, and revolving doors between donors and these corporations skew the agenda of AGRA in favor of profit-based, corporate-led farming rather than farming benefiting local people and small farmers. [1]

“It is time African Governments stop bowing to corporate donors and instead put farmers in the driver's seat, and focus on funding ecological methods and preserving local seeds.... http://www.commondreams.org/newswire/2012/09/25-0

October 2, 2012 That Flawed Stanford Study - NYTimes.com http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/10/02/that-flawed-stanford-study/

 

September 6, 2012 - Frances Moore Lappe - Common Dreams

 "I first heard about a new Stanford "study" downplaying the value of organics when this blog headline cried out from my inbox: "Expensive organic food isn't healthier and no safer than produce grown with pesticides, finds biggest study of its kind."

 What? Does the actual study say this? No, but authors of the study -- "Are Organic Foods Safer or Healthier Than Conventional Alternatives? A Systematic Review" -- surely are responsible for its misinterpretation and more. Their study actually reports that ¨Consumption of organic foods may reduce exposure to pesticide residues and antibiotic-resistant bacteria." ... http://www.commondreams.org/view/2012/09/06-12

 

(Note from @pdjmoo: Just because it's "Stanford" and "Science" does not mean we have to swallow any of their findings whole without question. Thinking independently and critically is crucial now at this time of spin, coercion, private/corporate funding of academic research with vested outcomes) ... STANFORD'S MONSANTO/GATES TIES CAST DOUBT ON ORGANIC FOOD STUDY http://ow.ly/dA8s7 ... Remember, there is an upcoming massive vote in California in November on labeling genetically engineered food in our food supply..  BIG PESTICIDE, FOOD COMPANIES SPEND MILLIONS TO FIGHT HONEST FOOD LABELS http://ow.ly/dAfuV ..  so watch for all types of misinformation to come out of the woodwork from all quarters. #prop37 #RightToKnow. The Big Food and Biotech industries are throwing tens of millions into defeating this. Think !! )

- ▶ U.S. RESEARCH LAB LETS LIVESTOCK SUFFER IN ATTEMPT TO RE-ENGINEER OUR FOOD ANIMALS  IN QUEST FOR PROFIT U.S. At a remote research center on the Nebraska plains, scientists are using surgery and breeding techniques to re-engineer the farm animal to fit the needs of the 21st-century meat industry. The potential benefits are huge: animals that produce more offspring, yield more meat and cost less to raise. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/20/dining/animal-welfare-at-risk-in-experiments-for-meat-industry.html?_r=1

-▶ INTRODUCING GENETICALLY ENGINEERED ANIMALS INTO OUR ENVIRONMENT AND OUR BODIES. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has issued a consultation on environmental risk assessment of genetically modified GM fish, insects, birds, and mammals (including pets, wild and farm animals) in the European Union (EU).

This consultation is intended to pave the way for the introduction of many different types of GM animals into the European countryside, rivers or seas, their use in factory farming, and even their introduction as pets into people's homes. http://www.gmwatch.eu/latest-listing/1-news-items/14073-european-consultation-on-gm-animals
