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

- ▶ WHY CHEAP MEAT COSTS THE EARTH.
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.

A story of hope, revival and commitment. A journey to restore seed and food sovereignty in Africa. A guide to anyone looking to secure agro-ecological farming systems around the world.

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

 

April 23, 2013 - The South African Civil Society Information Service

▶   IS AFRICA ABOUT TO LOSE THE RIGHT TO HER SEED?

Seed and the control of seed lies at the heart of agriculture. In Africa around 80% of seed comes from local and community saved seed resources. This seed is adapted to local conditions. It forms an integral part of community food security and agricultural integrity. This entire traditional system is now under threat.

A broad front of commercial interests, aided and abetted by the World Bank, the American Seed Association and government agencies, along with front groups, academics and so-called philanthropists, are endeavouring to alienate this crucial resource. The international seed industry, owned by massive multinational pesticide companies involved in promoting hybrid and genetically modified (GM) seed, is both a primary beneficiary and protagonist of this thrust. While the motivation is ostensibly to assist the development of African agriculture, the impacts will be widespread and dire. http://www.sacsis.org.za/site/article/1638

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

Preserving heritage crops has become an important environmental aim for a number of reasons. On one hand, creating a food system that's as local as possible reduces the carbon footprint of our food. But perhaps the most important need to preserve heritage seeds is to maintain the genetic diversity of our food, which has dropped to just 20 to 30 major varieties feeding the majority of the world's population.

Relying on a just a few staple crops makes our food supply more vulnerable to a whole range of potential threats, from disease to drought to pest infestations to climate change...http://modernfarmer.com/2013/10/weaning-canada-foreign-seed-dependence/

  ▶ ARE GENETICALLY ENGINEERED AND FARMED SALMON SAFE?

There are massively disturbing ethical, environmental, and health concerns that make the introduction of Frankenfish highly controversial...

Frankenfish could be on your dinner plate by the end of the year.

On December 21, at the very end of the last business day before Christmas week, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) quietly released its environmental assessment that found “no significant impact” from the controversial AquaBounty AquaAdvantage transgenic salmon.,,

What is the rationale behind genetically engineered salmon? Why have scientists spliced genes from an eel-like creature called the ocean pout into the genome of the Atlantic salmon? These genes crank out growth hormone year-round, resulting in a fish that grows faster, cutting the time to reach market weight almost in half. This could mean cost savings for fish farmers, leading to higher profits for the salmon farming industry and (they promise) lower prices for consumers.

But there are massively disturbing ethical, environmental, and health concerns that make the introduction of Frankenfish highly controversial... http://www.globalpossibilities.org/is-genetically-engineered-salmon-safe/

Marian Locksley's curator insight, April 11, 2013 2:57 AM

Impact on Oceans and Wild Salmon !

 

AquaBounty, the company behind the first Frankenfish, insists that their creation poses no threat to wild salmon populations. But research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that a release of just sixty GE salmon into a wild population of 60,000 would lead to the extinction of the wild population in less than 40 fish generations.

 

Not a Good mix and no matter how tightly confined pens are, there's always 'one'

Arun Shrivastava's curator insight, April 15, 2013 4:39 AM

Some years ago I saw a YouTube discussion on Genetically Engineered salmon where a private firm was advocating genetic engineering of the fish and its advantages. Actually they were interested in profits, nothing else. 

 

The fish grows to three times in weight as compared to the natural salmon in half the time. Salmon's breeding grounds are rivers and salmon eats anything that moves. Did this private company ever conducted a single biosafety test to ensure their engineered salmon's impact on Natural environment and aquatic life? I don't think so. 

 

The posting has many useful links; please explore that.

Arun Shrivastava's comment, April 15, 2013 2:01 PM
Thanks Marian. That bit I did not know that just 60 could wipe out 60,000. I must read this report because we don't know if someone in South Asia is using that technology. Will you kindly send me the URL? Thanks again.

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.

Everyone knows that the “conventional” modern American diet is among the most unhealthy that the world has known.  Everything loaded up with sugar, salt, and fat, filled with toxic artificial sweeteners, flavors, and colors, covered in pesticides inside and out, more often than not containing unnatural and untested GMO ingredients.  Many things tainted with endocrine disruptors such as the all too common BPA, phthalates, and many herbicides and pesticides.... http://www.nationofchange.org/what-are-we-eating-1365088476

TruthOut, December 3, 2012

 - ▶ FAST FOOD, SLOW DEATH

It's time for fundamental changes to our nation's toxic food system. The vast majority of what we eat, and where we buy what we eat, is controlled by just a handful of gigantic corporations that are far more interested in turning profits by leading droves of American consumers to the genetically-modified feeding troughs.

The issue is not whether Americans have access to enough food to eat. With a McDonalds and Taco Bell on nearly every street corner in Anytown, USA, there is no shortage of consumable fast food. The issue, however, is whether or not Americans have access to enough quality food like fresh fruits and vegetables to eat – the sort of food that, when digested in high volumes, won’t slowly kill us... http://truth-out.org/news/item/13145-fast-food-slow-death

"Bitter Seeds" Film Trailer: Monsanto, GMO Seeds And Indian Farmer Suicides

"Bitter Seeds" Film Trailer: Monsanto, GMO Seeds And Indian Farmer Suicides | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

 

September 18, 2012 BBC NEWS UK

 ▶ Thousands of Sri Lankans have been struck by a deadly form of kidney disease. A new study points to a likely cause - pesticides and fertilisers. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-19628295

 

 ▶ DOCUMENTARY "BITTER SEEDS" - 2012 Award Winning Film - Filmed in India https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZtKB_KuASc

Bitter Seeds is the final film in Micha X. Peled's Globalization Trilogy, following Store Wars: When Wal-Mart Comes to Town and China Blue. The films won 18 international awards, aired on over 30 television channels and screened in more than 100 film festivals. They also connected viewers to NGO action campaigns and encouraged Western consumers to understand their impact on the rest of the world.
    Bitter Seeds explores the future of how we grow things, weighing in on the worldwide debate over the changes created by industrial agriculture. Companies like the U.S.-based Monsanto claim that their genetically modified (GM) seeds offer the most effective solution to feeding the world's growing population, but on the ground, many small-scale farmers are losing their land. Nowhere is the situation more desperate than in India, where an epidemic of farmer suicides has claimed over a quarter million lives. Every 30 minutes one farmer in India, deep in debt and unable to provide for his family, commits suicide.

▶ Story at-a-glance

Over the past 16 years, a quarter-million of India's farmers have been driven to suicide by Monsanto's false promises and ruthless global monopolization tactics. It's estimated that one Indian farmer now commits suicide every 30 minutes. Most end their lives by drinking pesticide...http://www.kqed.org/arts/movies/article.jsp?essid=108818 

 

▶ "BITTER SEEDS" Trailer Bitter Seeds - TRAILER YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_L6OufpY3Ds

 "Bitter Seeds" looks at the beginning of the SUPPLY CHAIN – the raw materials – shedding much-needed light on the crisis created by Monsanto's genetically engineered Bt cotton. Buried in debt and struggling against the rising cost of GE seeds and the chemicals required, combined with failing yields and GE-created super weeds and resistant pests, Indian farmers have taken to suicide at a frightening rate.

 

=▶ 'BITTER SEEDS" is an examination of the debate surrounding biotechnology and the future of farming.

Biotechnology is changing the way farming is done all over the world. Advocates believe the “New Green Revolution” is the only way to provide sufficient food for the world's growing population while opponents raise environmental concerns and fear that GMOs drive small-scale farmers off the land. Bitter Seeds explores the controversy — from a village in India that uses genetically modified seeds to U.S. government agencies that promote them... http://www.itvs.org/films/bitter-seeds

 

REVIEW:

=▶ BRILLIANT DOCUMENTARY "BITTER SEEDS" ILLUMINATES PLIGHT OF THE INDIAN FARMER
"Bitter Seeds" is a character-driven documentary which shows us the bleak situation for cotton farmers in India. More than 250,000 farmers have killed themselves since 1995.

Washington (AP) — One of the biggest stumbling blocks to securing a massive free trade agreement between the United States and Europe is a sharp disagreement on genetically modified foods. http://www.newsdaily.com/article/30e80be5ce08a4dcb4379879a5c5bade/key-points-in-the-genetically-modified-food-debate

 

 

From: MOMS'S ACROSS AMERICA

Dear Moms and Supporters,
Did you know that if passed, the TPP Trans Pacific Partnership, could allow corporations to sue nations for barring the sale of their products? Do we really want a global corporatocracy where Monsanto can sue to push unlabeled GMOs through? Don't glaze over, I know this is very political, but it really is important.
This agreement is a threat to the entire structure of our society and economy and deserves a few minutes of everyone's time to find out about it, email your congress rep, meet and or write to your congress rep and share it with friends.
We must ask for 1) Stop the Fast Track which will allow our President to sign it into law without public disclosure. 2) Have TPP debated in Congress and allow the public to be privy to it's contents and STOP IT... http://www.momsacrossamerica.com/

The TPP is a Trojan horse, branded as a "free trade" agreement, but having nothing to do with fair and equitable treatment. In reality, it is precisely "a wish list of the 1% - a worldwide corporate power". [8] "Only 5 of its 29 chapters cover traditional trade matters, like tariffs or quotas." [9] "The other chapters enshrine new rights and privileges for major corporations while weakening the power of nation states to oppose them."

-▶ DOUBLING DOWN ON FAILED TRADE POLICY

The Trans Pacific Partnership lead by Pres. Obama,  is not only about lowering tariffs. It has the potential to greatly expand protections for investors over those for consumers and farmers, and severely restrict governments’ ability to use public policy to reshape food systems. The fundamental causes of recent protests across the globe over food prices, the rising market power of a handful of global food and agriculture corporations, as well as the dual specters of rising hunger and obesity around the world, point to the need to transform the world’s food systems, not to lock the current dysfunction situation in place... http://iatp.org/blog/201303/tpp-doubling-down-on-failed-trade-policy

At present, some 1.5 million hectares of land are primed for lease to foreign countries, and the Philippine government is set to open more agricultural lands to monopoly corporations of the United States, European Union, South Korea and Australia.
Lawmakers in the Philippines are pushing for amendments to the 1987 Constitution to allow 100 percent foreign ownership of land. This is reportedly a condition set on the Philippine government before being accepted to the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA), a trade pact being organized by the US government.

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

March 27, 2013 - Common Dreams

CONTROL OVER SEED IS THE FIRST LINK IN THE FOOD CHAIN

Control over seed is the first link in the food chain because seed is the source of life. When a corporation controls seed, it controls life, especially the life of farmers. Through patents on seed, Monsanto has become the "Life Lord" of our planet, collecting rents for life's renewal from farmers, the original breeders. Monsanto's concentrated control over the seed sector in India as well as across the world is very worrying. Monsanto's seed monopolies, the destruction of alternatives, the collection of superprofits in the form of royalties, and the increasing vulnerability of monocultures has created a context for debt, suicides and agrarian distress which is driving the farmers' suicide epidemic in India. This systemic control has been intensified with Bt cotton. That is why most suicides are in the cotton belt..... http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/03/27-4

THE NEW SCRAMBLE FOR AFRICA : INTERACTIVE INFOGRAPHIC

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

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

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

  - ▶  65 BILLION CONFINED FARM ANIMALS - CAFOs (Confined Animal Feed Operations). Today, nearly 65 BILLION animals worldwide, including cows, chickens and pigs, are crammed into CAFOs (Confined Animal Feed Lots). 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....Ronnie Cummins via Common Dreams  http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/01/17-5

  - EATING FERAL PIG: A MORE SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVE TO YOUR PORK CHOPS. More than 100 million pigs are killed every year in the U.S. and the pork industry produced over 23 billion pounds of meat in 2012. The massive industrial operations needed to supply America's pork hunger also have a significant environmental impact. Agriculture, including animal feeding operations, is the most common pollutant of U.S. rivers and streams, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. The enormous, toxic waste lagoons attached to some animal feedlots can even be seen from satellites.

Over the past several decades, the offspring of escaped domestic pigs, invasive Eurasian wild boars, and hybrids of the two have proliferated across parts of the U.S. In Texas, which may be the epicenter of the problem, an estimated 2.6 million hogs roam freeThese aggressive hogs run wild across natural areas, damaging wetlands and other habitats and out-competing native species for limited food supplies. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/12/19/eating-wild-boar-feral-pigs_n_6348486.html

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.

This farmer raises more than 17,000 pigs each year and it's open for public viewing. Owner Gerbert Oosterlaken believes the more you can see, the better.  “We decided that animal health, and human health, would be our priority,” Oosterlaken told me last fall in his barn, surrounded by warm plastic-lined pens where sows snoozed and new piglets squealed. “I don’t need to take antibiotics every day. There’s no reason my pigs should either.” http://modernfarmer.com/2014/06/abstinence-method/

George Monbiot, December 17, 2014
OVERGROWTH: Every child should visit an abattoir. If you disagree, ask yourself why.

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

- ▶ US GOVERNMENT FAILS TO PROTECT AMERICAN'S FROM SUPERBUG EPIDEMIC IN YOUR FOOD. 

Each year, Big Agriculture feeds millions and millions of pounds of antibiotics to factory farm animals, all to slightly increase their profits by plumping up their meat. In 2011 alone, nearly 30 million pounds of antibiotics were purchased by Big Agriculture, to promote growth in the animals, and to reduce the spread of disease in the horrific factory ­farm conditions. That 30 million pounds is a staggering four times the amount of antibiotics that were prescribed to humans that year.

These are otherwise healthy animals, but they’re getting dosed daily with low­ levels of antibiotics anyway. As a result, this widespread and unnecessary use of antibiotics in factory­farm animals is creating a major public health crisis here in the U.S by breeding antibiotic resistant infections caused by bacteria referred to in the media as superbugs. http://ecowatch.com/2014/08/06/government-fails-protect-americans-superbug-epidemic/

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

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

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

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

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

Why Every Parent Should Know About the Ag-Gag Bill and Animal Cruelty on Farms | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

 April 12, 2013 Huffington Post

Corporate accountability and transparency should be a business practice that all major companies adopt and implement. If you don't have anything to hide, then why not disclose exactly how you do business? Instead, Big Agriculture is trying to deter an honest depiction of what is really happening. To make it illegal for people to disclose information about the inner workings of your business makes it hard for me to trust the product you are selling.

 Industrial farms that host tens of thousands of livestock are breeding grounds for disease, so antibiotics are used to protect the animals. But those animal antibiotics are then ingested by humans, which can make human antibiotics less effective. Additionally, sometimes the diseases grow resistant to the antibiotics and persist or mutate. Humans eating these sick animals can get sick themselves, like in the case of salmonella and other food-borne illnesses... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/toni-nagy/why-every-parent-should_b_3064957.html

- ▶  MONSANTO WANTS TO TURN FOOD CROPS INTO GENE-ALTERING 'DRUGS".
The Monsanto company has forged a new partnership with Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company whose primary focus seems to be on figuring out how to best crack the genetic code so as to manipulate the way genes inherently express themselves. And based on the agreement the two companies have made publicly with one another, it appears as though Monsanto is planning to utilize Alnylam's proprietary gene-silencing technologies in its emerging agricultural pursuits, which will likely spawn a whole new category of problems for humanity and the planet at large.

PESTICIDE-LADEN POT: THE DANGERS OF LURKING CONTAMINANTS AND PESTICIDES WITH COMPROMISED IMMUNE SYSTEMS.  Humboldt State University, Jeffrey Raber said a recent study he conducted found that up to 70 percent of the pesticides found on a marijuana bud can transfer to the smoke being inhaled.."It's much like injecting it directly into your blood stream.”...

...especially in the medical patient context,” Raber said. “These are people that are immunocompromised, they're undergoing chemotherapy, they're very sick with antibacterial loads. We can't be subjecting them to more of these types of potentially harmful contaminants when they're looking to this as a medicine source.”  http://www.times-standard.com/localnews/ci_24628828/what-are-you-smoking-study-finds-pesticides-transfer

 ▶ 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. ...

Whole Foods Market Inc, Trader Joe's and other food retailers representing more than 2,000 U.S. stores have vowed not to sell genetically engineered seafood if it is approved in the United States, a new advocacy group said on Wednesday.
The announcement from the Campaign for Genetically Engineered-Free Seafood comes as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration appears close to approving genetically engineered salmon from Massachusetts-based AquaBounty Technologies. (Public Comment Ends January 25, 2013)
If it gets final approval from the Food and Drug Administration, the salmon would be the first genetically engineered animal to enter this country's human food supply.

Via pdjmoo
pdjmoo's insight:

AquaBounty Technologies the patent-seeking company for genetically engineered salmon has tried to cover all the bases for possible objections.  This includes raising these giant salmon in captivity on land to avoid possible ocean contamination.  What is interesting is they are proposing to do this in Panama, away from US prying eyes and where there is no oversight, regulations for how they are bred for import back into the USA.  Further, a fish this size should not be bred in captivity, enslaved in cramped quarters requiring antibiotics and pesticides for the lice that comes from such artificial breeding grounds.  Fish need to swim in the open ocean.  The answer to all this is to stop over-fishing so that our oceans can recover from the devastating losses experienced from massive ocean trawlers decimating the natural biodiversity of our oceans.

INDIA - Where Monsanto Hides Out: Genetic engineering has not lived up to it's claims, says scientist | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

March 2013 - DW World

Genetically modified crops aren’t new in India but they’re still dogged by controversy. Suman Sahai, a Delhi-based scientist and activist, talks about why the technology continues to be so divisive.

 

"There’s a strong scientific rationale why this technology needs to be regulated. And if you can’t regulate it properly, then it becomes a dangerous technology"...

My biggest fear regards safety and the risks posed to human health and the environment. When we do genetic engineering, all sorts of new things happen within a cell – you could have proteins that are created that are harmful, could elicit an allergic reaction or are toxic. Genes can flow out into the environment and run away into related plants and create problems.

India has a huge research program on genetically modified crops, and unlike many other parts of the world, it also has a very large public sector investment. That means a lot of the research programs are government-funded...and conflict of interest is rampant. There is also the presence of private seed companies and collaborations of these companies with the large US seed company Monsanto...

Rather than this big tech approach, the first step should be to conserve your traditional biodiversity and agro-diversity...

The one thing you never tire of hearing is that this technology is needed to produce more food. But I don’t think genetic engineering has lived out its potential...I don’t see how one particular technology is going to solve a larger food problem that has many complex aspects. Hunger is not a very straightforward situation – it results from a number of factors. It’s absurd to claim that you have this one intervention and that’s going to take care of hunger....

 

The question we need to ask is how relevant is GM technology to Indian food and agriculture? I think this is a solution looking for a problem. A lot of the plants that biotechnology companies in India are working on don’t make sense to me. I’m also opposed to herbicide tolerant crops  - we absolutely do not need them in India. That’s because the "weeds" they kill sustain millions of people, women in particular, who earn through weeding. The weeds are also used as either food or fodder in India...

We need to prioritize our interests and conduct a cost-and-risk-benefit analysis for every GM crop. And we need access to trial data to see how GM products perform. Putting public institutions under public scrutiny testing in the public domain is very essential.

Council for Responsible Genetics

▶  UNDERSTANDING THE ETHICAL, LEGAL, SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPLICATIONS OF BIOTECHNOLOGY

 The purpose of the Genetic Bill of Rights is to introduce a global dialogue on the fundamental values that have been put at risk by new applications of genetics. A basic set of common principles is essential for creating a framework for understanding the ethical, legal, social and environmental implications of biotechnology.

New genetic technologies pose unprecedented challenges to human integrity, individual liberty and the health of the biosphere. Since the questions that these technologies raise affect all of us, there is a pressing need to ensure the public is brought into the process of regulation and governance.... http://www.councilforresponsiblegenetics.org/Projects/CurrentProject.aspx?projectId=5

The Harvard group, in a paper published in the journal eLife, described a technology called a “gene drive.” It would allow scientists to make changes to the DNA of organisms that would spread rapidly in the wild.

                                        ORIGINAL REPORT

                                          eLife, July 17, 2014
CONCERNING RNA-GUIDED GENE DRIVES FOR THE ALTERATION OF WILD POPULATIONS.
RNA-guided gene drives could potentially prevent the spread of disease, support agriculture by reversing pesticide and herbicide resistance in insects and weeds, and control damaging invasive species. However, the possibility of unwanted ecological effects and near-certainty of spread across political borders demand careful assessment of each potential application. We call for thoughtful, inclusive, and well-informed public discussions to explore the responsible use of this currently theoretical technology. http://elifesciences.org/content/3/e03401



Biosafety Information Centre, November 24, 2014
 -▶ ALTERING WILD POPULATIONS THROUGH "GENE DRIVES" - WEIGHING THE RISKS. Because gene drives offer the prospect of manipulating many generations of a wild species, the risks have to be very carefully weighed against the potential benefits. In a paper published in the journal eLife, scientists from Havard call for public debate on gene drives. Given the potential for gene drives to alter entire wild populations and therefore ecosystems, they affirm that the development of this technology must include robust safeguards and methods of control.   http://www.biosafety-info.net/article.php?aid=1117

Science, July 17, 2014
 -▶ REGULATING GENE DRIVES. Genes in sexually reproducing organisms normally have, on average, a 50% chance of being inherited, but some genes have a higher chance of being inherited. These genes can increase in relative frequency in a population even if they reduce the odds that each organism will reproduce. Aided by technological advances, scientists are investigating how populations might be altered by adding, disrupting, or editing genes or suppressed by propagating traits that reduce reproductive capacity (1, 2). Potential beneficial uses of such “gene drives” include reprogramming mosquito genomes to eliminate malaria, reversing the development of pesticide and herbicide resistance, and locally eradicating invasive species. However, drives may present environmental and security challenges as well as benefits.   http://www.sciencemag.org/content/345/6197/626

Experts consulted for a recent report from the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Synthetic Biology Project say potential risks demanding more research range from the creation of “new or more vigorous pests and pathogens” to “causing irreparable loss or changes in species diversity or genetic diversity within species.” http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2014/09/beyond-gmos-the-rise-of-synthetic-biology/380770/?single_page=true

Fran Exposito's curator insight, November 27, 3:27 AM

The Council for Responsible Genetics represents the public interest and fosters public debate about the social, ethical and environmental implications of genetic technologies.

Founded in 1983, CRG is a non-profit, non-governmental organization based in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

 

The objective of CRG is to protect public access to biotechnology and  patents. These are topics we have studied and as we can see in spite of being regulated by laws there are some organizations who are focused on ethics related to biotechnology access, patient data protection...

Newcastle Web Consulting's curator insight, November 27, 7:21 AM

Manipulation of human genes creates new threats to the health of individuals and their offspring, and endangers human rights, privacy and dignity.

Genes, other constituents of life, and genetically modified organisms themselves are rapidly being patented and turned into objects of commerce. This commercialization of life is veiled behind promises to cure disease and feed the hungry.

People everywhere have the right to participate in evaluating the social and biological implications of the genetic revolution and in democratically guiding its applications.

To protect our human rights and integrity and the biological integrity of the earth, we, therefore, propose this Genetic Bill of Rights.

-▶  For two decades, starting with the controversial introduction of Monsanto’s recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) and Calgene’s Flavr Savr tomato in 1994, polls have consistently shown that U.S. consumers are wary, indeed alarmed, about the new technology of genetic engineering (GE). Surveyed regularly, the overwhelming majority of Americans have repeatedly stated that they either want these “Frankenfoods” banned, or at least clearly labeled.  http://www.nationofchange.org/biodemocracy-or-corporatocracy-food-fight-our-lives-1364483920

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.

-▶ MONSANTO GETS AN ATM MACHINE FROM OBAMA.  SOUND UNCONSTITUTIONAL? Now we are declaring biotech agrochemical companies to be above the law, essentially allowing them to do whatever they want, eliminating what little oversight had remained in the wake of their previous lobbying victories when it comes to regulating genetically modified crops. This final measure all but eliminates the ability of the government to restrict or regulate these organisms based on any environmental concerns.... http://www.triplepundit.com/2013/03/monsanto-buys-senate-democracy-buys-farm/

YOUR FOOD YOUR HEALTH - GMO-MONSANTO http://www.scoop.it/t/agriculture-gmos-pesticides?q=MONSANTO+GMO

pdjmoo's insight:

It is time for us all to wakeup to the incredible power of the global biotechnology cartel.  Their control over governments is astounding as we see governments rule against them, then within 6 weeks their ruling is overturned.

There is sufficient evidence in this archive YOUR FOOD, YOUR HEALTH, to show how the US Government, and the biotech/agrochemical, cartel (and that include Pres. Obama) are all in coohoots to strongarm the public, foreign governments and markets for a complete genetically modified world takeover.   This current silent, secret waiving of all regulations, oversight, liability and labeling is setting the bar for other foreign trade pacts in the works, namely the Trans Pacific Pact (TPP) and the EU-US Trade Agreement, both in the middle of negotiations.  The laws in the USA impacting negotiations favor the USA and the 'Monsanto Protection Act' is just the beginning.   Next will be Big Pharma, Big Oil and Gas, and Big Ag - a very, very powerful cartel and formidable "foe".

We must move from passive inaction and denial to deciding what we want the future of our planet to be... one controlled completely by the corporations and biotechnology industry changing nature and our environment into yet unforeseen scenarios, or returning to commonsense where we support the intelligence of our natural world to regenerate in Her own natural evolution.  Man cannot control Nature - he just doesn't know enough about the incredible symbiotic relationships that have evolved over billions of years within our ecosystems. Tinkering with the very fundamentals of life will impact entire ecosystems and, as such, the human race.

Monsanto's Power Grab: Genetically Engineered Foods Given Immunity From the Federal Government

Monsanto's Power Grab: Genetically Engineered Foods Given Immunity From the Federal Government | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

March 22, 2013 UltraCulture.

Congress has passed a short-term budget measure—the Senate Continuing Resolution spending bill—that included an ANONYMOUSLY-added rider that critics are saying gives Monsanto immunity from the federal government.

It’s a bit more complicated than that: the provision allows the US Department of Agriculture to grant temporary permission for genetically modified crops to be planted, even if a judge has ruled that said GMO crops aren’t approved—at least until proper environmental reviews are conducted.

Once you plant something, though, it’s hard to get it out of the wild, even should the USDA suddenly change its mind after already giving approval. Once they take root, GMO crops can spread or cross-pollinate into the environment—carrying whatever genetic programs their creators have loaded them with...... http://www.ultraculture.org/monsanto-given-immunity-from-the-federal-government/
