  -▶ HIGH STEAKS: THE CASE FOR LESS AND BETTER MEAT. There’s a high price to pay for that juicy T-Bone from supermarkets. Most meat, poultry, eggs and dairy sold in restaurants and supermarkets in the U.S. comes from factory farms — where animals are often raised in cruel, cramped and unsanitary conditions. In order to prevent disease and promote faster growth, they are frequently pumped with doses of antibiotics. This practice has contributed to the rise of antibiotic-resistant diseases in human populations, which pose one of the greatest public health threats of our time.

 ▶  AMERICA'S RED MEAT HORROR SHOW: WHY WE MUST GET RID OF FACTORY FARMS. FOUR MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR TRANSNATIONAL COMPANIESTyson JBS, Cargill and Smithfield—produce about 85 percent of the factory farm meat in the U.S., making it difficult for ranchers to sell their livestock to anyone but the Big Four. And of course these same Big Four companies, along with their front groups such as the North American Meat Institute, are lobbying the government to ditch the 2015 dietary guidelines to “eat less red and processed meat” recommendation because they understand what that recommendation will do to their bottom lines.

But what the Big Four fear even more is the thought of consumers waking up to the horrors of factory farms, and the filthy, contaminated meat that comes out of these animal prisons. http://www.alternet.org/food/americas-red-meat-horror-show-why-we-must-get-rid-factory-farms

  -▶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.

More beef and bacon means fewer bees and butterflies

The planting of vast monocultures has led to the loss of critical habitat for many beneficial plants and pollinators, including honey bees, which are critical to our food supply. Between 2008 and 2011, more than 23 million acres of grasslands, shrub land and wetlands were converted to row crops, in part to supply biofuel plants and animal factory farms.

 

This destruction of these native prairie lands releases large amounts of carbon from the soil into the atmosphere while destroying precious biodiversity and valuable habitat. Adding insult to injury, the rampant use of pesticides has also contributed to the alarming decline of bees and butterflies in recent years. For instance, glyphosate, a key ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp weed killer, is a potent herbicide that has decimated milkweed, the only food monarch butterfly offspring will eat.

 

What’s worse, our taxes are incentivizing this destruction: between 2001 and 2009 more than more than $46 billion in subsidies were paid out for animal feed production alone.

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

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

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

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

When state legislators met to hash out new laws in the spring of 2013, farm protection or ag-gag bills were voted on across the Midwest and in agricultural states in the South and Southwest. The laws were designed to criminalize the work of animal rights activists and whistle-blowers who secretly recorded abuse or other unlawful activity in confined animal feeding operations or other farms... http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/07/10/right-farm-laws

When the Obama administration sought to reform the animal farming industry, many farmers, some visibly frightened, risked their livelihoods by speaking publicly about abuses. But industry squelched that attempt.

Now, the industry lobbyists are working to reduce the number of inspectors in slaughterhouses, while speeding up the kill and processing lines.

In states like Wisconsin, opposition to some large operations is growing after manure spills and improper handling of waste have contaminated waterways and aquifers. http://e360.yale.edu/feature/as_dairy_farms_grow_bigger_new_concerns_about_pollution/2768/

Common Dreams, Ronnie Cummins

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

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

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.

 - ▶  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

▶  SEE WHO ACTUALLY OWNS THE FOOD YOU EAT: There are more than 38,000 products in the average American supermarket. That means tons of choice, right? In fact, the vast majority of these products are owned by just 10 companies. Those friendly looking Green Giant pees? That's General Mills. And Odwalla juice? That's Coca Cola. This matters, of course, because we deserve to know where our food comes from--and how it's made.  http://www.fastcocreate.com/3032899/see-who-actually-owns-the-food-you-eat-and-how-theyre-behaving

Rishi Suresh's curator insight, December 11, 2014 11:32 AM

This is an interesting article connecting eating to drug use. The connection is quite obvious, as food also causes a dopamine release. It is an interesting comparison, because it implies that the majority of the Western world is suffering drug addiction to food.

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

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

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.

  -▶  POOR COWS:  HARVESTING 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.

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

December 28, 2011 The Atlantic

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

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

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

-▶ RIVER CHEMICALS ARE FEMINIZING MALE FISH Male fish with signs of feminization, including the development of eggs, have been discovered in Pennsylvania’s Delaware, Ohio, and Susquehanna river basins. The find is a sign of hormone-disrupting chemicals in the water, possibly from mixtures of pesticides, pharmaceuticals, and personal care products, like cosmetics and antibacterial soaps, seeping into the rivers, Philly.com reports. The state’s Department of Environmental Protection has begun sampling river systems to learn which exact compounds are present, and if they could possibly affect humans. http://www.philly.com/philly/news/science/20140716_Intersex_fish_indicate_chemical_problems_in_Pa__rivers.ht

- ▶ ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE SPREAD TO BIRDS, OTHER WILDLIFE. In addition to crows, resistance genes have been detected in gulls, houseflies, moths, foxes, frogs, sharks and whales, as well as in sand and coastal water samples from California and Washington. The spread to wildlife is “an indicator of the wide-reaching scale of the problem. Microbes connect the planet,” said Lance Price, a professor of environmental and occupational health at George Washington University. “The danger is that we enter a post-antibiotic era in which even our last-line drugs won’t work and routine infections become life-threatening,” he said... http://www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ehs/news/2013/wildlife-antibiotic-resistance

The Day, Connecticut, October 6, 2013
- UNREGULATED, POTENT, GERM-KILLING CHEMICAL 'TRICLOSAN', COMMONLY FOUND IN PRODUCTS AND COSMETICS, IS HARMING ENVIRONMENT AND HUMANS.
Every time you brush your teeth with Colgate Total, coat your underarms with Arm & Hammer Essentials deodorant, or wash your hands with Dial Complete liquid soap or your dishes with Dawn Ultra, you are polluting our water. These and dozens of other cleaners and cosmetics, along with toothbrushes, socks, underwear, yoga mats, hockey helmets, cutting boards and other items carrying labels like "Biofresh," "Microban," and "antimicrobial," contain triclosan. This powerful chemical kills bacteria but also is the target of growing concern about its harmful effects on human health and the environment.

- ▶  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.

  - 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.

  YOUR CHICKENS ARE RAISED ON A STEADY DIET OF PRESCRIPTION, OVER-THE-COUNTER, AND EVEN BANNED DRUGS: CAFOs http://www.rodalenews.com/healthy-chicken


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.

i think that if they didnt have anything to hide, then people would know more about what is going on.

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

- ▶  HUNDREDS OF DEAD PIGS PULLED FROM CHINESE WATERWAYS -- EVERY MONTH  China has a dubious record with food safety, with rat meat passed off as lamb and pork passed off as beef, among other things. In an attempt to improve food safety, the country has apparently tightened rules so that dead pigs can no longer sold for human consumption or for animal feed, such as fish food. Consequently, it seems as though farmers are dumping carcasses into the rivers at night. Prior to the stricter controls, which began in 2005, it was rare to find pigs in the waterways...http://inhabitat.com/hundreds-of-dead-pigs-pulled-from-chinese-waterways-every-month/

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-

Modern Farmer, March 31, 2015
-▶ AMAZING NEW LAW TO STOP GIVING FARM PAYMENTS TO CORPORATE NON-FARMERS. The USDA has a variety of different programs in place to help farmers survive tough times; collectively, they’re known as the Farm Safety Net.The Farm Safety Net includes : subsidized insurance, minimum prices for commodity products like corn, wheat, and soybeans, and disaster assurance (so farmers might receive payments in the case of drought or frost, that kind of thing). This last element, and a bunch of others that are expressed via direct payments to farmers, are the focus of the loophole closing announced by the USDA. http://modernfarmer.com/2015/03/amazing-new-law-to-stop-giving-farm-payments-to-corporate-non-farmers/

The mammoth farm bill is reportedly near a conference compromise in Congress, bristling with more tragic cuts in the food stamp program for the needy and a revision of lucrative commodity subsidies for mostly big farmers. Running below the radar is a dangerous, broadly written amendment that would threaten states’ current powers to enact their own agricultural standards — standards that can extend far beyond farmyards to consumer, worker and environmental safety. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/25/opinion/a-hidden-threat-in-the-farm-bill.html?emc=edit_tnt_20140125&tntemail0=y&_r=0

▶ HOW CONGRESS IS MOVING TO CRUSH PROTECTIONS FOR SMALL MEAT AND POULTRY PRODUCERS. Consolidation has meant “the meatpackers report huge profits, while farmers’ share of the retail dollar has gone down dramatically—and consumers still see food prices rising at the grocery store.” In Missouri, Gibbons adds, thousands of independent small and mid-size family hog farmers have gone out of business because they don’t have access to a fair market. “Because of massive corporate control of the market, we’ve lost 91 percent of hog producers in Missouri since 1985. That’s over 20,000 farmers and many, many jobs in our rural communities.” http://civileats.com/2014/06/11/how-congress-is-moving-to-crush-protections-for-small-meat-and-poultry-producers-and-why-you-should-care/

▶  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

-▶  ARE UNIVERSITIES UNDERCUTTING THEIR OWN RESEARCHERS?

In a case before the U.S. Supreme Court this month, advocates for academic researchers are urging the justices to reverse a patent-infringement decision that has given the Monsanto Company broad authority to restrict scientists’ study of genetically modified seeds. The decision, the advocates say, not only hurts farmers and fuels higher food prices; it also contributes to “the suffocation of independent scientific inquiry into transgenic crops.”.. http://www.cornucopia.org/2013/02/in-standing-up-for-big-ag-are-universities-undercutting-their-own-researchers/

-▶  NO SEEDS, NO INDEPENDENT RESEARCH

 -- Companies that genetically engineer crops have a lock on what we know about their safety and benefits. Multibillion-dollar agricultural corporations, including Monsanto and Syngenta, have restricted independent research on their genetically engineered crops. They have often refused to provide independent scientists with seeds, or they've set restrictive conditions that severely limit research options.... http://articles.latimes.com/2011/feb/13/opinion/la-oe-guriansherman-seeds-20110213

 GMWatch, November 27, 2013

SERALINI GMO PEER REVIEWED SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE IS CRUSHED BY INDUSTRY. Journal retraction of Séralini study is illicit, unscientific, and unethical. Hayes’ decision to retract the paper follows FCT’s appointment of Richard E. Goodman, a former Monsanto scientist and an affiliate of the GMO industry-funded group, the International Life Sciences Institute, to the specially created post of associate editor for biotechnology at the journal, early this year.[10] Goodman’s appointment in turn followed an orchestrated campaign by GMO supporters to persuade FCT to retract the study. Some critics even accused Prof Séralini of fraud, without presenting any evidence. Many of the critics had undeclared conflicts of interest with the GMO industry.

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

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

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

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

WHAT USDA 'ORGANIC' FOOD IS...AND WHAT IT ISN'T - Critics like Cornucopia Institute says the USDA is attempting a 'power grab' in the interest of big business and in order to expand the exemptions list.http://www.treehugger.com/green-food/what-organic-food-is-and-what-it-isnt.html


Cornucopia Institute, June 19, 2014
DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE NAME :"THE ORGANIC TRADE ASSOCIATION" (OTA) IS A BIG INDUSTRY LOBBY GROUP MISREPRESENTING ORGANIC FARMERS....the USDA will not allow any promotional or information program, project, or activity that can be viewed as disparaging to conventionally produced products...

▶  IT'S TIME TO TAKE BACK THE ORGANIC COMMUNITY

Big Ag and their USDA cohorts have attempted to stack The National Organic Standards Board with their ilk, wresting power from true organic proponents, but four seats are now open. If you or someone you know would like to help take back organics, nominations are due May 15, 2014

 http://www.cornucopia.org/2014/05/time-take-back-organic-community/

 

                 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/
