65 BILLION ANIMALS RAISED IN CORPORATE CONCENTRATION PENS:  DRUGS, GMO FEED AND AG-GAG LAWS TO IMPACT US ALL

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.... http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/01/17-5

  -▶ THE AG-GAG REFLEX: THE ANIMAL ENTERPRISE TERRORISM ACT'S IMPACT ON US ALL. On November 27, 2006, after heavy lobbying by the pharmaceutical and agricultural industries, the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) was quietly signed into law. The AETA makes it a terrorist offense to engage in certain speech and activity that causes an “animal enterprise” the loss of real or personal property. (There is a dispute as to whether the term ‘loss of property’ means ‘loss of profits.’) ....http://davidhoganwriter.com/2014/02/19/the-ag-gag-reflex-the-animal-enterprise-terrorism-

 - ▶  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AND HUMAN HEALTH Today, ‘mixed’ farming of animals and crops has all but disappeared, writes PHILIP LYMBERY, and has been replaced by farms specialising in one product only....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.

FORGET AG-GAG LAWS: THIS SUMMER'S LEGAL FIGHT IS OVER THE RIGHT TO FARM. 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.

With ever fewer, ever larger companies controlling America’s farmland, whose right to farm is being protected? http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/07/10/right-farm-laws

FACTORY FARMING FACT SHEETS

Agribusiness has introduced anti-whistle-blower or “ag-gag” bills in numerous states aimed at making whistle-blowing on factory farms essentially impossible. Whistle-blowing employees have played a vital role in exposing animal abuse, unsafe working conditions, and environmental problems on industrial factory farms. The agribusiness industry's response to these exposés has not been to prevent the abuses, but rather to try to prevent the American people from finding out about the abuses in the first place... http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/campaigns/factory_farming/fact-sheets/ag_gag.html#id=album-185&num=content-3312

 ▶ THE WORST AVIAN INFLUENZA OUTBREAK ON FACTORY FARMS IN US HISTORY Virulent H5 avian influenza strains have spread to 14 states in five months and affected about 24 million birds so far, mostly egg-laying hens and turkeys, according to USDA.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/05/05/us-health-birdflu-funds-exclusive-idUSKBN0NQ1VZ20150505


- ▶  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

It's time to end the myth once and for all. The farms in children's books are history. Today's agriculture is increasingly industrial and only those who adapt will survive. In this episode we investigate the environmental effects of "mega farms". Are these large-scale enterprises more polluting than the smaller variety? The answer is not as obvious as one might think.

Huffington Post, December 19, 2014
  - 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.

  -▶  POOR COWS:  WE CAN HARVEST METHANE FROM PUNCTURING COW'S STOMACHS, BUT SHOULD WE? Argentinian scientists are punching holes in the sides of cattle and passing pipes through to their stomachs. 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.

George Monbiot, December 17, 2014
- OVERGROWTH:  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.

                 HORROR AT BUTTERFIELD HEN SLAUGHTERHOUSE

The life of an egg-laying chicken in the U.S., or one of 301 million others like her, normally lasts 12 to 18 months, during which she produces up to 450 eggs. But what happens after that, when she's no longer considered profitable by the egg industry? According to a new investigation, the life of a "spent" bird — the industry's term for a hen who's no longer used for her eggs — is short and not so sweet.

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.

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.

23 March 2013 - Los Angeles Times

-▶  -▶ GENETIC MODIFICATION STRAINS OLD FOOD AND DRUG LAWS ; HOW A FISH BECOMES A DRUG, AND CORN A PEST. When is a fish not a fish but a drug? When government regulators take old laws and twist themselves into knots trying to apply them to new technology...

Atlantic salmon that grow quickly thanks to a growth hormone gene from another salmon species are deemed "new animal drugs" because the Food and Drug Administration decided to regulate genetically engineered animals under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act of 1938.

A cotton plant that makes insect-killing proteins with the help of a gene from a soil bacterium is a pesticide in the eyes of the Environmental Protection Agency, which regulates the crop under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act of 1972.

In what some critics deem the biggest contortion, many genetically modified crops are classified as "potential plant pests" so that the U.S. Department of Agriculture may preside over them through the Federal Plant Pest Act of 1957 — even though the key traits added to the plants have nothing to do with pests....

pdjmoo's insight:

Time we all got off the wheel of blind consumerism and got back to sensible farming and eating.... and stop trying to manipulate nature and our animals for even more and more profit ... do you like eating corporate food, or even know what's in it? how it was produced or where?  Have you any idea of the devastation it is doing to our ecosystems and environment that every living species depends upon for survival?  And What about your health?  Wake-up World Your Life Depends Upon It

“We know that factory faming only exists because their secrets are secured behind high walls and closed doors—and that an informed community would not knowingly support such cruelty.”  http://www.onegreenplanet.org/news/watch-the-most-shockingly-beautiful-video-about-factory-farming/..

Who’s behind the Chinese takeover of USA's world’s biggest pork producer? VIDEO REPORT | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

                                               VIDEO REPORT

                               PBS Newshour, September 12, 2014

                                      "Processing 10,000 pigs per day"

USA Smithfield Foods, the world’s largest pork producer, was acquired by a Chinese firm in 2013 for nearly $5 billion -- more than the company’s market value. The surprising purchase caused some lawmakers to wonder if there might be a hidden player. As part of the series Food for 9 Billion, Nathan Halverson of the Center for Investigative Reporting examines how the Chinese government is involved. Continue reading →

The Economist, December 2, 2014
- ▶  SWINE IN CHINA:  EMPIRE OF THE PIG China’s insatiable appetite for pork is a symbol of the country’s rise. It is also a danger to the world. Some industrial facilities, often owned by the state or by multinationals, produce as many as 100,000 swine a year. These are born and live for ever on slatted metal beds; most never see direct sunlight; very few ever get to breed. The pigs themselves have changed physically, too. Three foreign breeds now account for 95% of them

USA GOVERNMENT HIDING BEHIND "NATIONAL SECURITY"...AGAIN. BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, US CONGRESS QUIETLY SELLING OUR MEAT, POULTRY AND MILK OUT FROM UNDER US TO CHINA.


September 6, 2013 Agri Pulse
- ▶  U.S. REGULATORS, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, QUIETLY GIVES CHINA APPROVAL TO PURCHASE SMITHFIELD, AMERICA'S LARGEST FACTORY FARM HOG PRODUCER. The merger has drawn congressional scrutiny in regards to food safety, as well as concerns about drug safety.

Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., noted that because the CFIUS review includes issues of national security, it is done in secret with no public oversight or transparency. 

    “It remains unclear what factors the [CFIUS] took into account in making its decision,” Stabenow said. “We still do not know if the potential impact on American food security, the transfer of taxpayer funded innovation to a foreign competitor, or China's protectionist trade barriers were considered.”

 - ▶  CHINA CLONING PIGS ON AN 'INDUSTRIAL SCALE - CLONE UPON CLONE UPON CLONE -The scale of ambition is staggering. BGI is not only the world's largest centre for cloning pigs - it's also the world's largest centre for gene sequencing. In neighbouring buildings, there are rows of gene sequencers - machines the size of fridges operating 24 hours a day crunching through the codes for life.

To illustrate the scale of this operation, Europe's largest gene sequencing centre is the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute near Cambridge. It has 30 machines. BGI has 156 and has even bought an American company that makes them. BGI's chief executive, Wang Jun, tells me how they need the technology to develop ever FASTER, CHEAPER ways of reading genes.

                              A RIVER OF WASTE - Documentary -

Exposes a huge health and environmental scandal in our modern industrial system of meat and poultry production. This documentary looks at the potential hazards caused by factory farms in the United States, particularly by waste disposal. Beginning with a history of the American food system, River of Waste shows its evolution to large-scale corporate farms where pollution and use of growth hormones threaten both individual health and the future of our planet....http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/river-waste/

A U.S. federal court has ruled for the first time that manure from livestock facilities can be regulated as solid waste, a decision hailed by environmentalists as opening the door to potential legal challenges against facilities across the country.  http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/01/17/usa-pollution-manure-idUSL1N0UW02520150117

- ▶  SCIENTIST FRUSTRATED BY MASSIVE FACTORY FARM WASTE, THREATENING BOTH HUMAN AND ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH: Despite a growing body of evidence that shows the environmental and health consequences of intensive livestock operations, Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) continue to pop up on the landscape.
   In Kewaunee County, where cows outnumber humans by more than three to one, and where the porous karst topography cannot possibly support the massive amounts of animal waste that the industrial farms produce, citizens have been fighting an uphill battle to have their concerns heard. 

Professor Lawrence said. "You go up against very politically powerful, influential groups whose vested interests are in discrediting the data or offering counter arguments of economic necessity, or it will kill jobs if you abide by the Clean Water Act or Clean Air Acts, dozens of different arguments that I've seen. http://www.ppulse.com/Articles-Headlines-c-2014-04-10-114424.114136-Scientists-Frustrated-by-Factory-Farms.htm

This excellent one hour documentary examines the "unintended consequences" of farming practices on water quality, soil loss and the "dead zone" in the Gulf of Mexico. 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 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. Any planning for a food future that still envisages using animal products and meat must debate the "moral cost" http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2013/sep/04/why-cheap-meat-costs-earth

 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

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.

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

THE TRUE COSTS OF INDUSTRIALIZED FOOD

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

24 March, 2013 - Other Worlds

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

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

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

A research team at the University of Guelph has developed a new line of transgenic Enviropigs. The new line of pigs is called the Cassie line, and it is known for passing genes on more reliably.

Though no studies indicate a food safety risk from genetically modified Enviropig pork, meat from the Enviropig is not yet available for human consumption. Forsberg said using Enviropigs could improve food production and the environment.... http://www.seeddaily.com/reports/Scientists_improve_transgenic_Enviropigs_999.html

BGI is not only the world's largest centre for cloning pigs - it's also the world's largest centre for gene sequencing. In neighbouring buildings, there are rows of gene sequencers - machines the size of fridges operating 24 hours a day crunching through the codes for life.

To illustrate the scale of this operation, Europe's largest gene sequencing centre is the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute near Cambridge. It has 30 machines. BGI has 156 and has even bought an American company that makes them. BGI's chief executive, Wang Jun, tells me how they need the technology to develop ever FASTER, CHEAPER ways of reading genes.

Los Angeles, May 03, 2014
- ▶ USA SCIENTISTS RACE TO BIO-ENGINEER CHICKENS AND FARM ANIMALS UNDER THE GUISE OF CLIMATE CHANGE & 'FEED THE WORLD" SPIN.

                 "The idea is to create animals that are more efficient,"

The researchers are in the vanguard of food scientists, backed by millions of dollars from the U.S. federal government, racing to develop new breeds of farm animals that can "stand up to the hazards of global warming" (and keep the billion dollar corporate factory farm industry in control of our food)

   Some climate-change activists dismiss the work, which is just getting underway, as a distraction and a concession to industrial-style agriculture, which they blame for compounding the world's environmental problems. Those leading the experiments, however, say new, "heat-resistant breeds of farm animals" will be essential to feeding the world as climate change takes hold.

▶ 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

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.

The ranks of the hungry were expanding while the ranks of farmers were thinning. Meanwhile, science was fascinated by biotechnology – the idea that we could genetically engineer crops and livestock (and people) with traits that could overcome all our problems. Agribusiness saw an opportunity to extract the enormous surplus value that was laced throughout the food chain. The hugely decentralized food system held pockets of profit just crying out to be centralized.  All the biotechnology industry had to do is chase away the competition and coerce governments into surrendering control. ....http://www.etcgroup.org/content/who-owns-nature

   When policymakers in the developed world talk about feeding billions of extra mouths in the decades to come, it's multinational agribusinesses—which operate industrial-size farms—that usually get most of the attention.

   But in the long run, it's small-scale farmers in the developing world, using low-tech but sustainable agricultural techniques, who may be best poised to lead the way in adapting to a warmer world and ensuring the security of the global food supply. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/05/140502-climate-change-agriculture-family-farm-science/

pdjmoo's insight:

THE ETHICS AND MORALITY OF PATENTING LIFE

There are no serious regulations, oversight or ethical requirements  for altering our food and food animals with genes for one reason...  Huge Profits .. To allow corporations to control our  factory farms and monculture crops and continue expanding, destroying health of environment and ecosystems and rivers.  Rather than stop what they're doing, this biotech gene-altering cartel will have changed nature and life within it to suit their ongoing juggernaut to control the world food supply - with or without authentic independently funded,peer-reviewed research as to both short and long-term affects on the animals, ecosystems and human health.  The growth-hormones used in our meat and poultry and pesticides/chemicals for the agricultural crops will eventually show up in the human condition, but it will be too late.  Obesity, Cancer and Diabetes is already a global epidemic wherever these GMO foods penetrate markets.  Most processed foods contain genetically engineered ingredients.

New Ag-Gag Law: Reporting Factory Farm Abuses Now An "Act of Terrorism"

New Ag-Gag Law: Reporting Factory Farm Abuses Now An "Act of Terrorism" | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Jan 24, 2013 - Three states are the latest states to introduce Ag-Gag laws and lawmakers in 10 other states introduced similar bills in 2011-2012.

How do you keep consumers in the dark about the horrors of factory farms? By making it an “act of terrorism” for anyone to investigate animal cruelty, food safety or environmental violations on the corporate-controlled farms that produce the bulk of our meat, eggs and dairy products.

CineversityTV's curator insight, February 4, 2013 6:27 AM

The food industry is allowed to poison the people, but the people are not allowed to share info on this sick food industry. We call that fascism.

Nikki Wynne's curator insight, September 24, 2013 11:08 AM

Ag-Gag laws are laws that prevent media and others from spilling out unethical or illegal practices about factory farms. Factory farms are farms that have very little space for the animals and are considered "cruel". North Dakota, Montana, and Kansas have already passed laws similar to these, but New Hampshire, Wyoming, and Nebraska are all considering it. These factory farm owners say that if others leak information, it should be considered as a "act of terroism" for the lone fact that people get angry and try to free animals or destroy properties. The ethical decision would alone to be save the animals, but the consequential factors are how that would affect our animal agriculture industry today without factory farms.

  - ▶  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
