▶  WHAT'S AN ORGANIC LABEL REALLY WORTH:
Supermarkets in North America and Europe are overflowing with organic-labelled fruit, vegetables, eggs and meats. More than 80 countries have organic standards and products carry one or more of 200 seals, logos and certification claims. But are consumers able to make informed choices? What’s the real ethical impact of “buying organic”? The answers are murkier than you might think.... http://www.ethicalcorp.com/supply-chains/organic-food-%E2%80%93-what-%E2%80%98organic%E2%80%99-label-really-worth

                 DON'T LET THE #USDA DESTROY ORGANICS

                                                  PETITION:

                                     Food Democracy Now

An outrageous power grab to destroy organics must be stopped! Right now one of the biggest assaults on the integrity of organic foods is taking place at the USDA that has ever been conceived, with high-level political appointees working behind the scenes with giant industrial corporations that sell organic product lines to gut 20 years of precedent in the congressionally-mandated National Organic Standards Board (NOSB).

At stake here is the neutering of an independent NOSB decision making process and the deliberate destruction of organic integrity by allowing synthetic ingredients to be permanently allowed in organic foods due to pressure from giant corporate organic interests. http://action.fooddemocracynow.org/sign/take_stand_for_organic_integrity/

Jose's curator insight, March 20, 2014 12:33 PM

After reading this article and having worked at a organic farmers market, i do not believe everything labeled as "organic" can all be 100 percent accurate. Although many are certified or classified as being organic i do not believe what the organic companies are trying to sell us. Makes me as an individual believe what is going on in the world, where you cannot trust what is being put down your mouth. Obviously a person has to eat but what exactly are they eating is the proper question. Certainty an eyebrow raising situation i believe everything is a scam. People will pay for something that is labeled as "organic" which only profits the business and is all about money, rather then be as a positive interest to an individual. 

Hannah Goble's curator insight, September 9, 2015 10:29 AM

More major food corporations are getting organic foods.

Finding new ways to industrialize the organic foods.

Looking to remove bad chemicals.

Also looking to keep pest out of the crop.

Looking to how it can be better for the eco system.

How humans can benefit from the farming.

What climate have a better effect on the organic farming.

Adjusting the farming with global warming to still grow good foods.

How it can make a better diet without having to watch eating size.

 Understanding the soil and how it is fertilized.

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

                                 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.

- ▶ THE WALMARTIZATION OF AGRICULTURE

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

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

As Wal-Mart’s low-wage workers are helping each other out with food donations, the Waltons themselves, whose combined wealth is equal to that of the bottom 42 percent of American households, ”have contributed almost none of their personal fortune” to their family’s charitable foundation, according to an analysis of 23 years of tax returns conducted earlier this year by Making Change at Wal-Mart. http://billmoyers.com/2014/11/20/walmart/

50 MILLION PEOPLE DON'T KNOW WHERE THEIR NEXT MEAL IS COMING FROM: HUNGER AND OBESITY ARE BOTH SIDES OF THE SAME COIN

The debate is filled with tired clichés about freeloaders undeserving of government help, living large at the expense of honest, hardworking taxpayers. But a new documentary, A Place at the Table, paints a truer picture of America’s poor.... http://billmoyers.com/segment/kristi-jacobson-and-mariana-chilton-on-how-hunger-hurts-everyone/

DID MONSANTO JUST RUIN THE ECONOMY?

They said it couldn't happen. It was all supposed to be locked up tight and under control. Yet, despite all the assurances to the contrary, unapproved genetically modified wheat has been found in an Oregon wheat field, and the implications of its discovery are far-reaching and potentially devastating. Monsanto (NYSE: MON  ) may have just single-handedly wrecked the wheat industry and the economy.

Corn, soy beans, alfalfa, sugar beets. All these crops have been genetically modified by Monsanto and its GM brethren to the point where there are virtually no alternatives for farmers. GM corn accounts for 86% of the country's supply. More than 90% of the soy beans have been altered. Sugar beets are half the country's sugar supply, and 95% of those seeds are from Monsanto.... http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2013/06/06/did-monsanto-just-single-handedly-ruin-the-economy.aspx

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

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

▶ 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. Whether it is soy in the Brazilian Amazon, wheat on the Ukrainian steppes or corn in Iowa, a single high-yield variety typically dominates the landscape for as far as the eye can seehttp://truth-out.org/news/item/27760-seeds-of-the-future

▶ 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

I deal with this daily. It is so important to know what we are eating. Clear labeling is very important, but I don't want the government regulating anything else. They keep messing enough up. I just refuse to buy something that is not clearly labeled or that causes a reaction in my family. Power of the Pocketbook, and my voice.

 -▶ 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/

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

                                   Pambazuka, February 19, 2015

                                   Genetic engineering is about

                        private corporate control of the food system.

▶ 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....

▶ 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. Whether it is soy in the Brazilian Amazon, wheat on the Ukrainian steppes or corn in Iowa, a single high-yield variety typically dominates the landscape for as far as the eye can seehttp://truth-out.org/news/item/27760-seeds-of-the-future

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

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!

SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY COULD OPEN A WHOLE NEW CAN OF WORMS. While biotechnology has been portrayed as a panacea for climate change and other societal ills, critics say these claims are largely unproven. “We are recommending a moratorium on the environmental release and the commercial use of synthetic biology, specifically because of the lack of international regulations and virtual lack of environmental and safety assessments anywhere in the world..." http://www.ipsnews.net/2014/10/synthetic-biology-could-open-a-whole-new-can-of-worms/Biosafety Information Centre, October 09, 2014

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

pdjmoo's curator insight, April 16, 2013 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.

With Food and Water Watch warning that nationally, 90 to 93 percent of such crops are genetically modified, Floridians have cause to know what's lurking up the food chain.....  http://www.miaminewtimes.com/2013-07-25/restaurants/monsanto-gm-crops/full/

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

                                 MONSANTO vs FARMERS (14:09)
                In 1996, Monsanto introduced its first GMO seeds. It ensured that farmers could not save the seeds and essentially loose the ownership of their seeds. Consequently, the power balance shifted away from the farmers to corporations who now own 80 percent of GM corn and 93 percent of the GM soy market. Now farmers not only have to buy the seeds from the corporations year after year, but they are also forced to comply with the rules and regulations embedded in the contracts, which are designed to put the farmers at a juridical disadvantage.    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNvW-uGBTSk

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....

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

WHY THE UPRISING? Global Marches And GMO Labeling Initiatives

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) -

New efforts to force labeling of foods made with genetically modified crops, including a bill introduced by U.S. lawmakers Wednesday, have struck a nerve with biotech crop developers who say they are rushing to roll out a broad strategy to "combat" consumer concerns about their products.

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

The Mind Unleashed, September 07, 2014
HOW MONSANTO, Bt GMO CORN AND PESTICIDES ANNIHILATED A PARADISEDeath has come to the beautiful island of Molokai, long considered an “old Hawaiian” paradise complete with waterfalls, lush rainforests and sprawling hills. It came in the form of a mighty Trojan Horse promising jobs and prosperity to the island’s small population of 7,500. Monsanto has set up shop, shrouded by fences and no trespassing signs. Almost 2,000 acres of Molokai’s paradise has been taken over by the biotech titan’s Bt corn crops. These patented genes produce a substance that prevents and destroys pests. The Bt toxin is engineered into corn crops meaning we eat toxic food whether we like it or not. http://themindunleashed.org/2014/09/monsanto-annihilated-paradise-turned-island-death.html

 ▶ 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. ...

MONSANTO IN UKRAINE:  IMF LOAN FOR UKRAINE TIED TO GETTING GMO GIANT THROUGH BACK DOOR INTO EU. Ukraine’s bid for closer ties with the west could come at a cost. With the IMF set to loan the country $17 billion, the deal could also see GMO crops grown in some of the most fertile lands on the continent, warns Frederic Mousseau. "in return for the cash, Ukraine could very well become a test ground for GMO crops in Europe, something the rest of the European Union has been looking to prevent"  http://rt.com/op-edge/183956-gmo-ukraine-monsanto-imf/

  -▶  UKRAINE OPENS UP FOR MONSANTO, LAND GRABS AND GMOs : A CONDITION OF LOANS BY THE WORLD BANK AND IMF. the World Bank and IMF loan has opened up Ukraine to major corporate inroads, writes Joyce Nelson. Loan conditions are forcing the deeply indebted country to open up to GMO crops, and lift the ban on private sector land ownership. US corporations are jubilant at the 'goldmine' that awaits them.

How UK, USA Support For Big Agribusiness is Fueling Poverty

http://sco.lt/8ked9N


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

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
