- ▶ INTRODUCING GENETICALLY ENGINEERED ANIMALS INTO OUR ENVIRONMENT AND OUR BODIES. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has issued a consultation on environmental risk assessment of genetically modified GM fish, insects, birds, and mammals (including pets, wild and farm animals) in the European Union (EU). This consultation is intended to pave the way for the introduction of many different types of GM animals into the European countryside, rivers or seas, their use in factory farming, and even their introduction as pets into people's homes.

Ban GMOs Now - A Special Report: Institute of Science in Society | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

"Sadly, a GMO free world is now virtually impossible. Transgenes have already escaped into the biosphere, creating a pollution that is truly irreversible. The least we can do is to stop this global experiment, as it is being conducted without the informed consent of those being exposed to its fallout.  The Biotech GMO Cartel enjoys free license with little or no regulation or oversight, or labeling.  This must cease. We should not have to fight for our food security and food safety while multi-national corporations are making trillions of dollars from our ill-health caused by their produce and products".

                                                  @ISISscience

GM agriculture is failing on all counts while hazards to health and the environment are coming to light. Opposition to GMOs is gaining momentum worldwide but the expansionist GM corporate agenda continues undiminished. GM agriculture is a recipe for disaster as this report will make clear. It is also standing in the way of the shift to sustainable agriculture already taking place in local communities all over the world that can truly enable people to feed themselves in times of climate change. Take action now to ban environmental releases of GMOs, locally in communities, villages, towns, municipalities, regions, as well as nationally and globally. We the people need to reclaim our food and seed sovereignty from the corporate empire before they destroy our food, farming (and  human/environment) health irreversibly... http://www.i-sis.org.uk/Ban_GMOs_Now_-_Special_ISIS_Report.php

-FOOD FIGHT, CORPORATE TRADE AGREEMENTS AND STATES' RIGHTS: DEMOCRACY OR CORPOCRACY? Angered by Monsanto and agribusiness stomping on their traditional community rights, consumers are fighting back, and so is the powerful Biotech Agri-Chemical Industry.
Approximately 1,000 counties in the U.S. have explicit authority in their state constitution to allow and uphold citizen ballot initiatives. Fearing that more and more counties will launch these initiatives, factory farm and biotech interests in at least A DOZEN STATES HAVE PASSED SO-CALLED  “RIGHT-TO-FARM" LEGISLATION DESIGNED TO PROTECT THE INTEREST OF CORPORATE http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_29258.cfm

GLOBAL COALITION FORMS TO TAKE ON GMO AGRICULTURE BRINGING TOGETHER 4.5 MILLION PEOPLE -  A new global organization has formed to take the GMO issue on. The Global GMO Free Coalition brings together GMO-free groups across 6 continents with a total membership of over 4.5 million people. More than 60 groups are part of this first globally coordinated network that plans to take the GMO food and crop industry head on. Among the countries represented: US, UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Russia, Georgia, Iran, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Taiwan, Australia, South Africa, New Caledonia and Ghana.Its aim, they say, is to cut through biotech industry propaganda, providing fact-based independent information to the media and governments that leads to responsible regulation in countries worldwide.

                                                  THE GMO WARS -

                    NO REGULATIONS, NO OVERSIGHT, NO LABELING

                                                July 21, 2014 @pdjmoo:

There is an extraordinary, well-funded, co-ordinated PR push by the powerful Biotech GMO industry, using Biotech "shills" to write articles in all top publications, on both sides of the Atlantic, right now, with the intent of bulldozing the less informed into global GMO acceptance, with little peer reviewed (vs self-interest industry studies) science references or acknowledgement of environmental and human health concerns. Expect an all out attack including character assassinations, USDA propaganda, heavy lobbying and funding of pro-biotech stances. Stay Alert. Do your homework on the sources allegiances and backgrounds

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.

Sustainable Pulse, November 12, 2013
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

▶  HUMAN GENES ENGINEERED INTO EXPERIMENTAL GMO RICE BEING GROWN IN KANSAS The only known GMO with inbred human traits in cultivation today, a GM rice product made by biotechnology company Ventria Bioscience is currently being grown on 3,200 acres in Junction City, Kansas — and possibly elsewhere — and most people have no idea about it. Since about 2006, Ventria has been quietly cultivating rice that has been genetically modified (GM) with genes from the human liver for the purpose of taking the artificial proteins produced by this “Frankenrice” and using them in pharmaceuticals.

                 DON'T LET THE #USDA DESTROY ORGANICS

                                                  PETITION:

                                     Food Democracy Now

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

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

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

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

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

More major food corporations are getting organic foods.

Finding new ways to industrialize the organic foods.

Looking to remove bad chemicals.

Also looking to keep pest out of the crop.

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

How humans can benefit from the farming.

What climate have a better effect on the organic farming.

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

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

 Understanding the soil and how it is fertilized.

May 2, 2014 - CHICAGO (Reuters) -

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

Executives from Monsanto Co., DuPont, and Dow Chemical, among the world's largest developers of biotech crops and the chemicals used to help produce them, told Reuters this week they are putting together a campaign aimed at turning the tide on what they acknowledge is a growing public sentiment against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) used as ingredients in the nation's food supply... http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/04/25/us-usa-gmo-labeling-idUSBRE93O18S20130425

May 1, 2013 Earth Justice, San Francisco, CA — 

▶  The National Research Council today issued a report finding that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must do more to ensure that pesticides do not harm threatened and endangered fish and wildlife.

Among the report's, Assessing Risks to Endangered and Threatened Species from Pesticides recommendations are that EPA more broadly account for pesticides’ direct and indirect harm to wildlife—including harm that is not immediately lethal, and impacts to food supply and habitat—and better consider the combined effects of exposure to multiple pesticides mixing in the environment....

The report’s recommendations will help Pacific salmon populations impacted by the approximately 200 million pounds of pesticides applied on the West Coast every year.... http://earthjustice.org/news/press/2013/pesticide-regulation-overhaul-needed-to-protect-wildlife-from-pesticides

▶ A MASSIVE CHEMICAL PLANT FORCED UPON COMMUNITY, IS POISED TO WIPE THIS IMPOVERISHED LOUISIANA TOWN OFF THE MAP. More than a dozen industrial plants now encircle the community of 500 residents, making it quite possibly the most polluted corner of the most polluted region in one of the most polluted states in the country. Now, a proposal to build the largest chemical plant of its kind in the Western Hemisphere would all but wipe Mossville off the map....But that massive plant will come with a steep environmental price. It will produce more greenhouse gases than any other facility in the state. And the project will almost certainly spell the end for the 224-year-old settlement of Mossville, a poor enclave that has been forced to play host to industrial facilities no one else wanted in their backyard. http://www.motherjones.com/environment/2014/03/sasol-mossville-louisiana

FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva said that in many countries intensive crop production has depleted agriculture's natural resource base, jeopardizing future productivity. "To fight hunger and eradicate poverty, we will need to find more sustainable ways to produce 60 percent more food by 2050," he said. However, he recognized that chemical pesticides would continue to be part of farming in many parts of the world in future. ... http://www.unep.org/newscentre/default.aspx?DocumentID=2716&ArticleID=9501&l=en

- ▶  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. ...

 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.

                                        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

SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY ON OUR SHELVES

Alien E. coli, smart probiotics and a busy year for yeast – 2015 will see synthetic biology really hit the market. Designed on computer and put to work in vats, engineered yeasts will be churning out food flavourings, health supplements and life-saving drugs currently obtainable only from rare plants. Several of these projects are now making the jump from pilot studies to industrial production.

Swiss biotech firm Evolva, for example, is teaming up with Canadian food company Cargill to market steviol glycosides that were produced in yeast. The increasingly popular zero-calorie natural sweetener is usually extracted from the plant Stevia rebaudiana.

US firm Synlogic is going one step further. Rather than swallowing the products of synthetic organisms they want us to ingest the smart bugs themselves. Next year, Synlogic will begin testing its engineered probiotic bacteria, designed to move through the gut on search-and-destroy missions, policing the gut microbiome by activating certain genes in the presence of less-welcome bacteria.

As these synthetic organisms start to proliferate, we need to make sure they are kept under control. That means continuing to work on creating bacteria that can only grow in specific environments. One team, for example, is expected to announce a synthetic version of Escherichia coli that can only grow when surrounded by artificial amino acids. Douglas Heaven

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. ...

Fran Exposito's curator insight, November 27, 2014 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, 2014 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.

-▶  -▶ 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....

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

 

January 12, 2013 - Science News

▶  THE FACTORY OF LIFE

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

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

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

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

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

▶  CORNSTALKS EVERYWHERE BUT NOTHING ELSE, NOT EVEN A BEE

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

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

The world has a long way to go to come to grips with pesticide pollution say scientists who recently created a global map showing which areas are most susceptible.Their modeling suggests that streams across about 40 percent of the planet’s surface are at risk from the application of insecticides, with the Mediterranean region, the USA, Central America and Southeast Asia among the hotspots...On average, farmers apply about 4 million tons of agricultural pesticides  annually,...We know from earlier investigations for example that pesticides can reduce the biodiversity of invertebrates in freshwater ecosystems by up to 42 percent...

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

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 immuno compromised, 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

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, March 19, 2014 8:29 PM

"Wonder Why Marijuana Laws Are Passing So Quickly Across the USA and the World. It's Not For Your Health. And It's Not About the Drug Wars. It's about the repeat of ending "prohibition" and restructuring wealth. Big politics and "Legal" Money is involved here to capture, control and profit from this new market. The Cartels and Multi-National Corporations Have Control of a global agricultural Industry, already in place: from owning the land, to growing the crops, patenting new genetically engineered seeds, owning the pesticides and marketing .. and we're right back to toxic smoking and ill-health. Nothing new here."

Christina Bryant's curator insight, April 7, 2014 5:03 AM

This article speaks about how Colorado, particularly Denver, believes that there will be a marijuana shortage now that marijuana has been legalized. This article goes into depth about how there will be a shortage in the short run, but eventually the supply and demand should come to an equilibrium.

▶  OUR MODERN, WESTERN AGRICULTURAL SYSTEM IS DESTROYING THE EARTH AND OUR HEALTH.

Today our food comes from across the world. More importantly, it is often produced in highly destructive ways, at the lowest possible cost.

Consequently our food production system is responsible for accelerating the rate of destruction of the very ecosystems we are reliant upon in order to maintain our delicate global environmental equilibrium.

We cut and clear the lungs of the world, our tropical rainforests, to feed livestock or grow dishonestly named "biofuels". We bulldoze natural filtration systems and the nurseries for life like wetlands and mangrove swamps to produce luxury foods for obese populations. http://allafrica.com/stories/201401071158.html?viewall=1

The new study was carried out by independent doctors at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, at the University of Sherbrooke Hospital Centre in Quebec, Canada. Traces of Bt toxin were found in the blood of 93 per cent of the pregnant mothers – 28 out of 30. It was also found in 80 per cent of the umbilical cords – 24 out of 30.
    In the non-pregnant group, traces were found in the blood of 69 per cent – 27 out of 39. It is thought the toxin is getting into the human body as a result of eating meat, milk and eggs from farm livestock fed GM corn.
The Canadian team told the scientific journal Reproductive Toxicology: ‘This is the first study to highlight the presence of pesticides associated with genetically modified foods in maternal, foetal and non-pregnant women’s blood.’.. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1388888/GM-food-toxins-blood-93-unborn-babies.html

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

Simply  frightful!  I  have  been commenting on this topic  since I first published my in  house  thesis  for  the  21st  century:Quantum Organiculture. It  was  published  for me  by the  Jamaican Gleaner  company  during the  80s  and  90s,  and  a  modified version  by the Science Research Council of Jamaica at  their  16th Annual Conference in Kingston Jamaica. My  position remains  the  same  and  as far as I cn see is being  almightily reinforced  by  these  findings.

You become what is in what you eat. Do you want to consume food full of pesticides? They are dangerous, disease causing and can become deadly. Just read the facts if you can find them.

                                             MEATONOMICS:

Few consumers are aware of the economic forces behind the production of meat, fish, eggs, and dairy.  Yet omnivore and herbivore alike, the forces of meatonomics affect us in many ways.

▶  BIG BEEF IS TAXED FOR PRIVATE LOBBYISTS

When you buy a Big Mac or a T-bone, a portion of the cost is a tax on beef, the proceeds from which the government hands over to a private trade group called the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. The NCBA in turn uses this public money to buy ads encouraging you to eat more beef, while also lobbying to derail animal rights and other agricultural reform activists, defeat meat labeling requirements, and defend the ongoing consolidation of the industry... http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/magazine/january_february_2014/features/big_beef048356.php

- ▶  WHY CHEAP MEAT COSTS THE EARTH - THE MORAL COSTS
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://allanimalrights.org/News-834-Why-cheap-meat-costs-the-Earth

There are problems with this kind of consolidation...“When all the power is so centralized in these behemoths, they end up writing their own rules in Congress and fighting the reforms to protect consumers and farmers”...

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.

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.
