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-

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.

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

Over the course of the past century our food supply has shifted from local to global. Most food our grandparents ate was grown regionally, often by neighbourhood farmers.

   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

Biocultural Heritage,
 ▶  SMALLHOLDER INDIGENOUS INNOVATION FOR RESILIENCE. Much of the world's agrobiodiversity has been lost in the last century due to the spread of modern agriculture. Only about 30 crops now provide 95% of all human diet (FAO). The pockets of crop diversity that remain, which are often sustained by indigenous people and small-scale farmers, are vital for food security because they provide options for adaptation, now and in the future. These local varieties (or landraces), are adapted to the natural and cultural environment, are often more resilient than modern crops, and are continuing to co-evolve with farmers to adapt to change. But this diversity is in steady decline and innovation by small-scale farmers is weakening as a result of top down research and development in agriculture, which undermines their capacity to adapt. http://biocultural.iied.org/smallholder-innovation-resilience-sifor

▶ FEED THE WORLD:  FAMILY FARMERS HOLD KEYS TO AGRICULTURE IN A WARMING WORLD. Faced with global warming and a population that will swell to nine billion by 2050, a growing number of experts say that the way to feed the masses as climate change makes growing our food more difficult is to focus on family farmers, who often can barely feed themselves. ... 

   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/

▶  DESPITE CLIMATE CHANGE, AFRICAN CAN FEED AFRICA. There is a continuing argument as to whether the industrial agricultural revolution will solve some or all of Africa's climate change problems. However, experts maintain that industrial agriculture currently accounts for one third of all greenhouse gas emissions--the very element most responsible for climate change. Additionally, they believe that the resources and infrastructure required to operate an industrial agricultural system in Africa are impractical for smallholder farmers... http://allafrica.com/stories/201402191455.html

 ▶ FUTURISTIC FARMS: RETHINKING MONOCULTURE FARMING AND  HOW WE GROW OUR FOOD. It’s a vicious cycle that has been the curse of destructive agriculture for thousands of years: remove native vegetation, continuously grow crops, don’t rest the land or return nutrients. Erode and exhaust soils. Move on. Repeat.

We can choose another fate: understand the land, take care of the soil. We need to farm as nature does – with diverse crops, and plants and animals together – rather than the so-called “monocultural” school of farming that grows huge fields of annual crops. Natural ecosystems are complex, and dominated by perennials, a dense mat of fibrous roots that exists in the soil year-round, tightly holding soil and water. Annual crops have those fully developed living roots for just a few fleeting weeks during the growing season. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/mar/25/california-drought-silicon-valley-moment

The world needs to "wake up before it is too late" and usher in a paradigm shift in agriculture that moves away from industrial agriculture in favor of “mosaics of sustainable regenerative production system" that favor small-scale farmers and local food production, a new report from a UN body states.

                                                  The Report—

▶  WAKE UP BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE: MAKE AGRICULTURE TRULY SUSTAINABLE NOW FOR FOOD SECURITY IN A CHANGING CLIMATE (PDF) —http://unctad.org/en/pages/PublicationWebflyer.aspx?publicationid=666

...was written with contributions from over 60 experts, and finds that "urgent and far-reaching action" is needed to address the "collective crisis" of "rural poverty, persistent hunger around the world, growing populations, and mounting environmental concerns."

 However, the call from the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) flies in the face of the goals laid out by trade deals now being negotiated including the secretive Trans Pacific Partnership....

                       Interview With Elizabeth Kolbert, Author

▶  IN THE WORLD'S "SIXTH EXTINCTION": ARE HUMANS THE ASTEROID? Elizabeth Kolbert is the author of the new book The Sixth Extinction. It begins with a history of the "big five" extinctions of the past, and goes on to explain how human behavior is creating this sixth one — including our use of fossil fuels and the effects of climate change.

"We are effectively undoing the beauty and the variety and the richness of the world which has taken tens of millions of years to reach," Kolbert tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross. "... We're sort of unraveling that. ... We're doing, it's often said, a massive experiment on the planet and we really don't know what the end point is going to be." http://www.npr.org/2014/02/12/275885377/in-the-worlds-sixth-extinction-are-humans-the-asteroid

... 

This study, the International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge, Science and Technology for Development, suggested that food production should hark back to its roots and use resources more smartly and equitably.

Trade distorting subsidies must end. Local ownership and stewardship require encouragement. Practices that preserve and restore ecological resources need to be pursued. Relevant science and technology can be adopted while constantly bearing in mind the multifunctional role of agriculture.

There certainly are practical models, capable of correcting the wrongs we have wrought on our ecosystems, to produce sufficient food for all.

The real (political) trick is to shift control of these resources back to where they are most needed - as Amartya Sen said - to those who trapped in poverty, without access to good, affordable food.

Simultaneously, those able to make informed choices should leverage their purchasing power to encourage a shift away from unhealthy and unsustainable eating choices.

▶ 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

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.

 - ▶  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.

TakePart, July 10, 2014
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

INDIA OFFICIALS SEEK TO CURB ANTIBIOTICS AND HORMONES IN ANIMAL FEEDFearing spread of antibiotic resistance through the food chain, the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) and the agriculture ministry have directed state governments to stop the use of antibiotics and hormones in animal feed. They have also called for strict implementation of a 2012 law, which mandates a gap between the time an animal is given a drug for medical purposes and sale of food products from that animal. http://articles.economictimes.indiatimes.com/2014-06-09/news/50448268_1_food-producing-animals-antibiotics-animal-feed

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

Newsweek, July 24, 2014
EXPOSURE TO PESTICIDES WHEN PREGNANT LINKED TO 3 GENERATIONS OF DISEASE. In the post-Silent Spring 1960s, when the pesticide DDT was discovered to be toxic to humans and wildlife and to persist for years in the environment, farmers and landscapers turned enthusiastically to Methoxychlor. The pesticide—also commercially known as Chemform, Methoxo, Metox or Moxie—had a much shorter half-life and was billed as the safe alternative to DDT. Now, new research argues that exposure to the pesticide could cause diseases three generations later, in offspring who were never exposed to the Methoxychlor themselves. http://www.newsweek.com/pesticide-diseases-pesticide-exposure-pesticide-poisoning-pesticides-and-pregnancy-261181

The standard covers vegetables, fruits, grain, edible oil, sugar, soft drinks, nuts, eggs and meat. It includes juice and preserved fruits for the first time. http://www.agprofessional.com/news/China-adopts-stricter-pesticide-residue-standard-269591991.html

NOW "MUTAGENESIS" -  AS OPPOSITION TO GM CROPS GROWS, COMPANIES ARE TURNING TO "MUTANT" SEED BREEDING

Mutagenesis deletes and rearranges hundreds or thousands of genes randomly, spawning mutations that are less precise than GMOs. ... The process, which faces almost no regulation, creates opportunities for companies to grab a bigger share of the $34 billion global commercial seed market. But some scientists say mutant crops are more likely to pose health risks than genetically modified ones.

All breeding techniques can create plants with increased levels of naturally occurring toxins or with proteins known to cause allergic reactions....Reports from the National Academy of Sciences, representing the consensus of experts in the field, say the risk of creating unintended health effects is greater from mutagenesis than any other technique, including genetic modification. ...http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/economy/agriculture/as-opposition-to-gm-grows-companies-are-turning-to-mutant-breeding/articleshow/26334154.cms

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

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

PESTICIDE-LADEN POT: THE DANGERS OF LURKING CONTAMINANTS AND PESTICIDES

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

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

Glyphosate’s suppression of Cytochrome P450 enzymes and amino acid biosynthesis by beneficial gut microbes has led to a variety of human diseases that globally reach epidemic proportions in populations on a Western diet, including gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease [5].

Glyphosate and other pesticide residues had been contaminating our staple foods since before 2002, according to UK Defra (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) Expert Committee on Pesticide Residues in Food (PRiF) [6] and neither had our friends in Wales and in Denmark. Following the recommendations by Monsanto, farmers had been using glyphosate as herbicide throughout the crop growth cycle; and at the end they were also desiccating (drying) or ripening crops with glyphosate sprayed about 7-10 days before harvest [7]. So, some of us in Europe are receiving glyphosate residues in all our non-organic staple foods, such as bread, cereals, potatoes, pasta, pulses, rice, sugar, beer, whisky, etc.[6] and many foods from the US made from corn or soya (mostly GM). http://www.i-sis.org.uk/How_Roundup_Poisoned_My_Nature_Reserve.php

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

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, September 18, 2013 12:18 PM

The reason why you may not have thought much about these pesticide plants before is because our media has found itself in an unhealthy alliance with well paid spokespeople who aggressively represent the biotech industry’s point of view.

lloyd stanley gordon's curator insight, September 30, 2013 3:31 PM

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.  

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, October 25, 2013 4:21 AM

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.

▶  AFRICA:  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 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.

In the harvest of 1999, 60% of Canada's canola crop, 90% of Argentina's soybean crop, 50% of the US' soybean crop, and 33% of the US' corn crop was genetically engineered. Industrial agriculture is damaging the basis for future production. We've got soil erosion, soil compaction, salinisation, water logging, destruction of beneficial biodiversity, loss of natural enemies of pest... and all that is occurring in an alarming rate.

ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORT: GazetteNet, November 5, 2013

-▶  BIO-ETHANOL FUEL: THE SECRET DIRTY COST OF OBAMA'S GREEN POWER PUSH.  Five million acres of land set aside for conservation — more than Yellowstone, Everglades and Yosemite National Parks combined — have vanished on Obama’s watch. Landowners filled in wetlands. They plowed into pristine prairies, releasing carbon dioxide that had been locked in the soil. Sprayers pumped out billions of pounds of fertilizer, some of which seeped into drinking water, contaminated rivers and worsened the huge dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico where marine life can’t survive. ... 15 million more acres of corn were planted last year than before the ethanol boom http://www.gazettenet.com/home/9190243-95/the-secret-dirty-cost-of-obamas-green-power-push

 ▶ UNLIMITED COMPETITION IS NOT SUSTAINABLE -  CORPORATE FARMING
Large farms now dominate crop production in the United States. Although most cropland was operated by farms with less than 600 crop acres in the early 1980s, today most cropland is on farms with at least 1,100 acres, and many farms are 5 and 10 times that size. Meanwhile, in 1987, the average dairy herd size was 80 cows; by 2007, it was 570 cows, in 2012 it was 5,000. The change in hogs was even more striking, from 1,200 hogs removed in a year to 30,000... http://postgrowth.org/unlimited-competition-is-not-sustainable/

▶  FARMING AND KNOWLEDGE MONOCULTURES ARE MISCONCEIVED

Food needs can be met with a new vision for agriculture and science
In mainstream policy and corporate thinking, scientific knowledge and global markets are considered key for food security. This has resulted in the industrialisation and laboratory research-led intensification of agricultural systems, inputs and food-supply chains.
But intensified systems do not meet global food needs — they mostly suit export markets and corporate interests.... an industrial monoculture model of production — of both food and knowledge — avoids its ecological and social costs, while suppressing more effective sustainable alternatives, and underexploits science's potential versatility.... http://www.scidev.net/global/agriculture/opinion/farming-and-knowledge-monocultures-are-misconceived.html

This  is  an  awful  lot  of  information  but  all  of it  spells  one thing: "Be  aware  and  beware!

Samantha Fuller's curator insight, October 2, 2013 10:31 AM

"Our modern energy-, chemical- and genetically modified organism (GMO)-intensive industrial food and farming systems are the major cause of man-made global warming." Studies show that not only are greenhouse gasses caused by Carbon Dioxide but also by methane and nitrous oxide. Farming includes so many different ways of using fuel form the machinery to the end of food production. Another way farming isn't helping is through deforestation, and wetlands destruction. "When you add it all up, the picture is clear—contemporary agriculture is burning up our planet. And factory farms or, in industry lingo, Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs), play a key role in this impending disaster." Climate rise is complex but a few of the top reasons are coal burning, and fossil fuels. To get this under control we would need to stop using 90% of the fosil fuels we are using.

Sally J. Everett's curator insight, October 10, 2013 6:33 AM

We can't live in fear of the future, we have to have farms no matter what they emit into the air. Without farms, we couldn't survive.

THE WALMARTIZATION OF AGRICULTURE

- ▶ Walmart has become an icon of the corporate rush to keep costs low and profits high, regardless of the effects on society. They sell cheaply made goods—often produced in deplorable conditions—for low prices and keep overhead costs low by refusing to pay their workers a livable wage. It is this business strategy that catapulted them to be among the largest corporate interests in the world and allowed them to spread into virtually every corner of the United States....

The massive demand for food by our planet’s population and the proliferation of processed foods in the Walmartization of agriculture, has led to an increase in industrial mono-crop farming, particularly in regard to corn. The industrial mono-crop farming of corn is a very important part of this situation, as much of the world sweet-corn farming is used in the creation of high fructose corn syrup for processed foods. Virtually every processed food contains some amount of high fructose corn syrup, thus huge amounts of corn need to be grown. To make matters worse, American corn that is intended for high fructose corn syrup is commonly made out of GMO corn—oftentimes Monsanto “Roundup Ready” corn... http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-walmartization-of-agriculture/5336449

DID MONSANTO JUST RUIN THE ECONOMY?

They said it couldn't happen. It was all supposed to be locked up tight and under control. Yet, despite all the assurances to the contrary, unapproved genetically modified wheat has been found in an Oregon wheat field, and the implications of its discovery are far-reaching and potentially devastating. Monsanto (NYSE: MON  ) may have just single-handedly wrecked the wheat industry and the economy.

Corn, soy beans, alfalfa, sugar beets. All these crops have been genetically modified by Monsanto and its GM brethren to the point where there are virtually no alternatives for farmers. GM corn accounts for 86% of the country's supply. More than 90% of the soy beans have been altered. Sugar beets are half the country's sugar supply, and 95% of those seeds are from Monsanto.... http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2013/06/06/did-monsanto-just-single-handedly-ruin-the-economy.aspx

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

 ▶ BIOTECHNOLOGY REGULATORY AUTHORITY OF INDIA (BRAI) Bill 2013 By Dr Vandana Shiva

 Immediately after the then Minister of environment Jairam Ramesh announced a moratorium on BT Brinjal, a Biotechnology Regulatory Authority of India (BRAI) suddenly emerged . BRAI could not be passed in 2010 and 2011 because of objections by citizens and parliament, but it has surfaced again as a 2013 Bill.

While it is presented as a Biotechnology Regulation Act, it is in fact a Biotechnology Deregulation Act, designed to dismantle the existing Biosafety regulation. That is why ,in the area of Food and Agriculture it can be called India’s Monsanto Protection Act that gives corporations like Monsanto immunity by freeing them of courts and democratic control under our federal structure, just like the US Monsanto Protection Act through which Monsanto sneaked in section 735 under the HR 993 Act to give itself immunity.http://www.navdanya.org/blog/?p=683

                                           ======================

                                              VITAMIN A OVERDOSE

                                          ======================

 

Many of the "vitamin" fortified GMO crops are the only source of food in impoverished nation and/or the multiple crops being fortified mean each meal they are getting yet another dose of a vitamin whether they need it or not risking serious health symptoms from overdose.

 "Recent tests have revealed that a substantial amount of vitamin A can be obtained by eating only 60g of cooked golden rice. " What is not being addressed is the issue of Vitamin A overdose and poisoning.

 ▶  SIGNS OF A VITAMIN A OVERDOSE  http://www.livestrong.com/article/345535-signs-of-a-vitamin-a-overdose/


NO REGULATION, NO OVERSIGHT, NO LABELING 

 We need to proceed with great caution about gene-altered "fortified" food that has no boundaries or dosage warnings and no regulation or labels. Whether your body needs the "fortification" it or not,  it will enter your digestive system risking Vitamin A overdose, reactions, allergies and deaths.  More dangerous is that potential spread of these gene-altered crops into traditional bananas without us knowing it, impacting surrounding biodiversity, wildlife and pollinators.

Other countries that have been struck by a similarly mysterious form of chronic kidney disease - most notably, in Central America - offer dialysis to only a small fraction of patients who need it. Kidney dialysis is an expensive procedure.

In Sri Lanka, the government is trying to help larger numbers of patients. It is expanding access to dialysis and to kidney transplants. These efforts are keeping many patients alive.

But doctors and public health officials remain frustrated. They say more should be done to prevent people from getting sick in the first place.

farmlandgrab.org, August 04, 2014
▶ CORPORATE INFLUENCE THROUGH THE G8 AND OBAMA'S NEW ALLIANCE FOR FOOD SECURITY AND NUTRITION IN AFRICA. In recent times, new partnerships models between governments, business and civil society are increasingly gaining attention. One prominent example is the "New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition" (G8NA), inaugurated at the G8 summit 2012 in the United States.

This working paper concludes that the approach and objectives of the G8NA are highly problematic. The initiative serves as an enforcing mechanism for corporate driven blueprints for agriculture and sidelines national plans and international standards. It is dominated and tailored towards the interests of big corporate actors and is based on a reductionist approach of agricultural “development”. And lastly, the G8NA is poorly institutionalized and disregards fundamental principles of transparency participation and accountability. http://farmlandgrab.org/post/view/23793

▶ OBAMA FOOD AID RAVAGES THIRD WORLD FARMERS. The US taxpayers who finance foreign food aid surely believe they are feeding starving people, writes James Bovard. But the truth is the reverse - it is undermining indigenous agriculture in recipient countries - creating famine and chronic malnutrition, while sabotaging self-sufficiency. http://www.theecologist.org/News/news_analysis/2494069/obama_food_aid_ravages_third_world_farmers.html

 

Pambazuka -Voices for Freedom and Justice in Africa

▶ HOW COMPANIES FRAME ISSUES OF FOOD AND GLOBAL HUNGER FOR THEIR OWN SELF-INTEREST AND BOTTOMLINE PROFITS

There is a new, but deceptive, foreign drive to end hunger in Africa through large-scale agribusiness. Yet helping poor households in rural Africa feed themselves in an affordable manner means introducing low-cost, sustainable enhancements to farming.

History is riddled with examples of the poor dying of hunger when food was plentiful. Classic amongst these is the famine which wracked the West African Sahel during the early 1970s. While people were dying of hunger in Senegal, Mali and Niger, peanuts — a key sauce ingredient and source of protein across the region — were being exported to Europe....

...The rise of philanthrocapitalism in the US, where former and current business leaders, through the strength of their foundations, have increasingly come to influence the shape and direction of US international development programmes. Central to the philanthrocapitalist worldview is a belief that private enterprise is the fundamental agent of progressive change and that business acumen trumps other forms of expertise... http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/85291

Take a look at our latest infographic to see how.

▶ AFRICA: OUR CONTEMPORARY, WESTERN AGRICULTURAL SYSTEM IS DESTROYING THE EARTH AND OUR HEALTH

Over the course of the past century our food supply has shifted from local to global. Most food our grandparents ate was grown regionally, often by neighbourhood farmers.

   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

 ▶ GIVING GENEROUSLY, WORLD FOOD PROGRAMME

Last year, the WFP helped to feed over 90m people in 80 different countries. But the way it distributes food relief has been changing. In the 1960s, the organisation’s aid programmes for the developing world focussed on the distribution of food staples, often bought in developed countries, directly to the poor. Later, it was discovered that sourcing food more locally tended to be less disruptive to the local economy. Free distribution of food imported from elsewhere can undercut local food markets and cause more fundamental economic problems to occur. Buying more of it locally, it was found, tended to help farmers in the region more in the medium term.http://www.economist.com/blogs/freeexchange/2014/03/world-food-programme

Trisha Quek's comment, February 2, 10:27 PM
Reaction to Natasha's comments : I feel really sad for the people who are starving in the picture. They are starving till the extend that they are as skinny as a skeleton. I'm glad that the government is donating time and money to help the people who are in poverty. Governments in other countries should also work together to help fight poverty. I agree with Natasha's comments suggesting the government to invest some money for education to educate the people living in poverty so that they will be more self dependent and learn new skills to help with their survival. But first, the government has to really feed them well enough for them to be healthy and start learning new skills and finding a job.

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

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/

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

-▶  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.
