                                           GHANA AND GMOs

Genetic engineering is about private corporate control of the food system.

                                   Pambazuka, February 19, 2015

▶ 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....

 - ▶  FARM-AGEDDON: TODAY'S MEGA FARMS DESTROYING ENVIRONMENT AND HUMAN HEALTH Today, ‘mixed’ farming of animals and crops has all but disappeared, writes PHILIP LYMBERY, and has been replaced by farms specialising in one product only....

   Because without fuss or fanfare, and largely unnoticed by the public, our farm animals are being disconnected from the land, disappearing from fields and moved into cramped, airless hangars and barns, with concrete beneath their feet instead of grass.

   And now the pressure is growing to move to the next stage of intensive farming: mega-piggeries, mega-dairies and ‘battery’-reared beef, with the genetically engineered animals and crops already common in the United States and elsewhere.

   It is a pressure we in this country should resist with all our might. Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2545647/Farm-ageddon-No-birds-No-bees-Our-countryside-laid-waste-And-billions-animals-never-blade-grass-book-warns-terrifying-threat-todays-gram-mega-farms.html

  -▶ THE LEGAL FIGHT OVER WRITING CORPORATE INDUSTRIAL FARMING INTO THE CONSTITUTION  State constitutional amendments and other legal measures would protect industrial agriculture. When state legislators met to hash out new laws in the spring of 2013, farm protection or ag-gag bills were voted on across the Midwest and in agricultural states in the South and Southwest. The laws were designed to criminalize the work of animal rights activists and whistle-blowers who secretly recorded abuse or other unlawful activity in confined animal feeding operations or other farms... http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/07/10/right-farm-laws

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.

Common Dreams, Ronnie Cummins

65 BILLION ANIMALS WORLDWIDE CRAMMED INTO CAFOs (Confined Animal Feed Lots  including cows, chickens and pigs, These animals are literally imprisoned and tortured in unhealthy, unsanitary and unconscionably cruel conditions. Sickness is the norm for animals who are confined rather than pastured, and who eat GMO corn and soybeans, rather than grass and forage as nature intended. To prevent the inevitable spread of disease from stress, overcrowding and lack of vitamin D, animals are fed a steady diet of antibiotics. Those antibiotics pose a direct threat to the environment when they run off into our lakes, rivers, aquifers and drinking water.

   The vast majority of consumers don’t realize that nearly 95% of the meat, dairy and eggs sold in the U.S. come from CAFOs. Nor do most people realize that CAFOs represent a corporate-controlled system characterized by large-scale, centralized, low profit-margin production, processing and distribution systems.... http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/01/17-5

-▶ INDIGENOUS DIETS CAN FIGHT MODERN ILLNESSES, SAY HEALTH EXPERTS  Unprecedented levels of chronic non-communicable diseases are prompting calls to revert to the diets of our ancestors to regain lost nutrients. It is believed that such a shift would help to improve society's relationship with the Earth and restore human and environmental health.
"The rise of the industrial model of agriculture has contributed greatly to people being disconnected from the food on their plates," says Sarah Somian, a France-based nutritionist. http://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2014/feb/03/indigenous-diets-fight-modern-illnesses

We need to know what the mega farms are planning to do with food production so we can  avoid it and stop it.

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, February 5, 2014 7:24 AM

We need to be aware of what mega farming is planning for future food production. Will we be in time to stop this totally destructive, self-serving industry that will kill us all if allowed to carry out their intentions?

According to the USDA, 95,000 acres of corn, 125,000 acres of upland cotton, and 25,000 acres of soybeans have been planted in the state of Florida in 2013. 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/

▶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

                                 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

▶ 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....

June 6, 2013 The Motley Fool -

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

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.

Neonicotinoids are systemic, meaning that as the plant grows the pesticide becomes incorporated into the plant (AND WE HUMANS DIGEST THIS???)  http://www.beyondpesticides.org/dailynewsblog/?p=13312

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.

- ▶  HOW GMO FOODS AFFECT HEALTH

The FDA’s position on genetically modified foods is that they are totally safe to eat, and pose no risk to the health of consumers. But health-conscious eaters (as well as the entirety of the European Union) have some reservations, and recent studies show that an aversion to GMO foods is not just idle paranoia. In fact, crops and meats that have been genetically modified may have a harmful effect on various organ systems and consumers’ health in general. Read on to find out more.

EXPOSURE TO PESTICIDES WHEN PREGNANT LINKED TO 3 GENERATIONS OF DISEASE. In the post-Silent Spring 1960s, when the pesticide DDT was discovered to be toxic to humans and wildlife and to persist for years in the environment, farmers and landscapers turned enthusiastically to Methoxychlor. The pesticide—also commercially known as Chemform, Methoxo, Metox or Moxie—had a much shorter half-life and was billed as the safe alternative to DDT. Now, new research argues that exposure to the pesticide could cause diseases three generations later, in offspring who were never exposed to the Methoxychlor themselves. http://www.newsweek.com/pesticide-diseases-pesticide-exposure-pesticide-poisoning-pesticides-and-pregnancy-261181

GRAIN, May 26, 2014
2,4-D SOY:  WAGING WAR ON PEASANTS  Global attempts by Dow AgroSciences to gain approval for new genetically-modified soybean varieties resistant to the herbicide 2,4-D have become particularly aggressive in recent months. Simultaneous applications have been filed in several of the countries where genetically engineered crops (GE or transgenic crops or GMOs) were introduced in the 1990s.
   The push for approval of new transgenics is part of a broader strategy by agribusiness to make the world’s farms increasingly dependent on its toxic herbicides, thus increasing the profits it derives from selling these chemicals. The current situation is a rerun of the 1990s’ introduction of Roundup Ready (glyphosate-resistant) crops, only this time the herbicides in question are much more toxic. These weed-killers have been around for a longer time and the case for their hazardousness to human health and the environment has been well documented. http://www.grain.org/article/entries/4945-2-4-d-soy-waging-war-on-peasants

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. ...http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/economy/agriculture/as-opposition-to-gm-grows-companies-are-turning-to-mutant-breeding/articleshow/26334154.cms

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

FOOD FOR THOUGHT... AND PEACE

http://ourworld.unu.edu/en/food-for-thought-and-peace/

 What has food really got to do with peace? And are some foods more “conflict-sensitive” than others?

 ...Travelling across the world we can see how we’re connected together through unhealthy soft drinks and chilli sauces, but often not through genuine peace.

 It is fascinating how, in most South-East Asian countries, you see and taste virtually the same sweet chilli, fish and soy sauce cluttering the plastic tables of roadside and market stalls, even if the labels differ. One wonders what people used to do before the age of factory food, plastic packaging and added monosodium glutamate.

Reuters, RT News, August 2014
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

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 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

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

▶ 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....

Steve Kingsley's curator insight, November 28, 2013 7:50 PM

If it is true that when deciding whether to allow a genetically engineered crop onto the market, the Department of Agriculture and other regulatory agencies do not perform their own experiments on the performance and safety of the crop, then we should make it their business, starting now!

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, November 30, 2013 7:50 PM

Now that's an easy one to answer. The companies creating GMOs are too busy patting themselves on the back and rewarding themselves for the inventions. They don't have the ethics required to take a real, hard and serious look at themselves to see the danger and disastrous consequences of what they are creating.

 ▶ ANTIBACTERIAL SOAP INGREDIENT TRICLOSAN NOW LINKED TO LIVER FIBROSIS. Another reason to stop buying antibacterial soap
The marketing claim 'antibacterial' still sells soap. That apparently means that people are not afraid of superbugs developing due to the constant evolutionary pressure of low levels of antibiotics in the environment. Fear of frog-disruptors  has not slowed the growth of this product sector. http://www.treehugger.com/health/another-reason-stop-buying-antibacterial-soap-will-it-finally-be-banned.html

                             WHAT THE RESEARCH SHOWS.
A growing list of household and personal care products are advertised as “antibacterial” because they contain a chemical called triclosan. While the manufacturers of these products want you to think triclosan protects you from harmful bacteria, it turns out that it may be doing more harm than good. Here is a summary of research from 60 studies on how triclosan impacts human health and the environment.  http://www.beyondpesticides.org/antibacterial/triclosan-research-3-09.pd

WHY CONGRESS CAN'T FIX OUR CRAZY CHEMICAL SAFETY SYSTEM. How broken is the nation's chemical-safety system? Of the 80,000 or so chemicals currently used in commerce, the Environmental Protection Agency has only tested 200 since Congress gave the agency its marching orders nearly four decades ago. And of the 200 tested chemicals, only five have been banned or regulated.

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/

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?

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

 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.

Just like America, processed food consumption is having its effects on China’s population. Twelve percent of China’s adult population—114 million people—have diabetes, causing complications such as cardiovascular and kidney disease, as well as strokes, that experts say amount to a “major epidemic.”

American presidents may talk about exporting democracy, but we've had far better luck getting other nations to adopt our fast food-eating ways. In China alone, McDonald’s now has more than 1,600 restaurants, and Bloomberg reported last year that the fast-food chain generates around 22 percent of its revenue from franchises in the Asia Pacific region, the Middle East, and Africa... http://www.takepart.com/article/2013/09/27/china-will-soon-rule-world-processed-food-consumption

 ▶ MONSANTO DOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW WHAT YOU'RE EATING. The biotech industry is working to prevent mandatory labeling for foods with genetically engineered contents... 

The biotech industry, led by Monsanto, will soon descend on the state of Washington to try its best to defeat I-522, a citizens’ ballot initiative to require mandatory labeling of foods that contain genetically engineered (GE) ingredients.

Dont want us to know they are feeding us POISON!

Jessica Ballard's curator insight, April 25, 2013 10:45 AM

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.

CineversityTV's curator insight, April 26, 2013 4:18 AM

So You Want To Eat Meat? Feedlots vs. Pastures

So You Want To Eat Meat? Feedlots vs. Pastures | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

December 28, 2011 The Atlantic

FEEDLOTS vs PASTURES:  TWO VERY DIFFERENT WAYS TO FATTEN BEEF CATTLE. Raising cattle on pasture is inherently more challenging than fattening them on feedlots, but many feel the results are worth the extra effort.

Before buying your next cut of beef, consider these two photographs.

The first is of the Harris Ranch Beef Company feedlot along Interstate 5, about halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. There, up to 100,000 cattle at a time are crowded on top of their own excrement into one square mile of what can be euphemistically called mud (winter) or dust (summer). From the highway, the stench wallops you like a punch in the face and lingers in your car and clothing (even if you never stop driving) for miles -- and in your memory forever. Critics call the Harris feedlot Cowschwitz..... http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2011/12/feedlots-vs-pastures-two-very-different-ways-to-fatten-beef-cattle/250543/

How Roundup® Poisoned my Nature Reserve. Glyphosate everywhere, in your food, in our water, in our soil

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]. http://www.i-sis.org.uk/How_Roundup_Poisoned_My_Nature_Reserve.php

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

2,4-D SOY:  WAGING WAR ON PEASANTS  Global attempts by Dow AgroSciences to gain approval for new genetically-modified soybean varieties resistant to the herbicide 2,4-D have become particularly aggressive in recent months. Simultaneous applications have been filed in several of the countries where genetically engineered crops (GE or transgenic crops or GMOs) were introduced in the 1990s.
   The push for approval of new transgenics is part of a broader strategy by agribusiness to make the world’s farms increasingly dependent on its toxic herbicides, thus increasing the profits it derives from selling these chemicals. The current situation is a rerun of the 1990s’ introduction of Roundup Ready (glyphosate-resistant) crops, only this time the herbicides in question are much more toxic. These weed-killers have been around for a longer time and the case for their hazardousness to human health and the environment has been well documented. http://www.grain.org/article/entries/4945-2-4-d-soy-waging-war-on-peasants

                          Guardian Environment, June 23, 2014

-▶ TOXIC INSECTICIDES PUT WORLD FOOD SUPPLIES AT RISK, SAY SCIENTISTS. Regulations on pesticides have failed to prevent poisoning of almost all habitats, international team of scientists concludes. The world’s most widely used insecticides have contaminated the environment across the planet so pervasively that global food production is at risk, according to a comprehensive scientific assessment of the chemicals’ impacts.
The researchers compare their impact with that reported in Silent Spring, the landmark 1962 book by Rachel Carson that revealed the decimation of birds and insects by the blanket use of DDT and other pesticides and led to the modern environmental movement.
Billions of dollars’ worth of the potent and long-lasting neurotoxins are sold every year but regulations have failed to prevent the poisoning of almost all habitats, the international team of scientists concluded in the most detailed study yet. As a result, they say, creatures essential to global food production – from bees to earthworms – are likely to be suffering grave harm and the chemicals must be phased out... http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/jun/24/insecticides-world-food-supplies-risk

The foodstuffs of the Western diet, primarily grown by industrial agriculture, are increasingly being produced using a two-part system of engineered plant seeds and toxic chemical application. Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
