HOW "EXTREME LEVELS" OF ROUNDUP IN FOOD BECAME THE INDUSTRY NORM Roundup Contamination of GMO Soybeans http://www.independentsciencenews.org/news/how-extreme-levels-of-roundup-in-food-became-the-industry-norm/


Institute of Science in Society, September 17, 2014

- ▶ ROUNDUP, 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

Por esto no aceptamos el uso de pesticidas en nuestras tierras…tenemos que decir ya no en todo Mexico.


This is why we do not use any pesticides at Hacienda Silil, giving our bees and other plants and animals a chance to live and grow in natural conditions.

                               PBS Newshour, September 12, 2014

                                      "Processing 10,000 pigs per day"

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

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

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

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

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

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".

                                   Institute of Science in Society

                                                  @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

                                                June 06, 2014
-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.

                    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

▶  RIVAL INDUSTRIES SWEET-TALK THE PUBLIC

Court documents show that the corn refinery and sugar industries spent millions to enlist academics and lobbying groups to support a secret public relations war over the market for sweeteners... http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/12/business/rival-industries-sweet-talk-the-public.html?ref=ericlipton&_r=0

WASHINGTONThe corn refinery and sugar industries, bitter rivals in the manufacture of billions of dollars’ worth of sweeteners for sodas and other high-calorie foods, covertly funded dueling nonprofit groups in Washington in a multiyear effort to grab market share, while also stoking fears among consumers about possible health risks, court records made public in a federal lawsuit between the two parties show.

The lawsuit, which has brought hundreds of pages of secret corporate emails and strategy documents into the public domain, demonstrates how Washington-based groups and academic experts frequently become extensions of corporate lobbying campaigns as rival industries use them to try to inflict damage on their competitors or defend their reputations against such assaults...

 - ▶ A LIST OF FOOD COMPANIES THAT HIDE GMO SWEETENERS

Big Ag companies have a vested interest in GMO seeds, and the pesticides and herbicides they use in tandem. GMO cotton, soy, sugar beets and corn, which are manipulated to make sweeteners and fats along with other additives like high-fructose corn syrup and soy lecithin, are in ready-made food, snacks, condiments, juice, soda and cereal. Many companies pushing these products into the marketplace prefer to hold profits high and keep consumers in the dark. Labeling these products would affect close to 80% of processed, non-organic food in the US. http://readersupportednews.org/opinion2/277-75/13062-a-list-of-food-companies-that-hide-gmos

“Since it came on the market in late 1970s, diabetes and obesity has grown roughly the same rate as its sales,” he said. “We believe in this issue and we felt it was really important the public know.”

Mr. Turner and a lawyer for the sugar industry, Adam R. Fox, each said there was no intentional effort to hide the sugar industry support for Citizens for Health. A tax return filed in 2013 shows the contribution from the industry association, and a website run by the group also now discloses the support. But earlier versions of the document and the website, even after the contract with the Sugar Association had been signed, did not reflect the association’s donation. But Mr. Turner acknowledged he could have done more to make sure the financial support was publicly known at the time it began.

Marion Nestle, a New York University professor and nutrition expert named in several documents as someone whom corn industry executives sought to influence, said the role both industries played was unfortunate.

“It is a plague on both of their houses,” she said, adding that she felt manipulated by the corn refiners industry, which used her statements to defend its products. “It is a disgusting performance neither should be proud of.”

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

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.

February 5, 2013 - THE CORNUCOPIA INSTITUTE

-▶  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/

 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.

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.

TakePart, September 27, 2013- America's Greatest Export - Fast Food

Just like America, processed food consumption is having its effects on China’s population. Twelve percent of China’s adult population—114 million people—have diabetes, causing complications such as cardiovascular and kidney disease, as well as strokes, that experts say amount to a “major epidemic.”

American presidents may talk about exporting democracy, but we've had far better luck getting other nations to adopt our fast food-eating ways. In China alone, McDonald’s now has more than 1,600 restaurants, and Bloomberg reported last year that the fast-food chain generates around 22 percent of its revenue from franchises in the Asia Pacific region, the Middle East, and Africa... http://www.takepart.com/article/2013/09/27/china-will-soon-rule-world-processed-food-consumption

▶  WHAT'S AN ORGANIC LABEL REALLY WORTH:
Supermarkets in North America and Europe are overflowing with organic-labelled fruit, vegetables, eggs and meats. More than 80 countries have organic standards and products carry one or more of 200 seals, logos and certification claims. But are consumers able to make informed choices? What’s the real ethical impact of “buying organic”? The answers are murkier than you might think.... http://www.ethicalcorp.com/supply-chains/organic-food-%E2%80%93-what-%E2%80%98organic%E2%80%99-label-really-worth

                                                  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.

pdjmoo's curator insight, April 16, 2013 5:25 AM

Rather than nurture and foster our natural world back to health,  the huberous of the biotech community wants to change our ecosystems to suit their own financial gains with little or no regard for the symbiotic, interdependent health all the species that depend on a natural, evolving web of life.   What we will be left with is anybody's guess as species after species lays waste to our environment and biosphere.  Their myopic approach disregards the greater whole of the complex and yet to be understood billions of years of natural evolution where the web of life is interconnected and everything is dependent on everything. 

Lucero De La Tierra's curator insight, April 16, 2013 1:44 PM

I fear the more we try to "adjust", "improve", and copy the wonderful creations we find in nature the more we will lead to it's ultimate detriment.

A RACE TO SAVE THE APPLE AND ORANGE BY ALTERING ITS DNA

Growers turned to genetics in hopes of building a tougher orange tree. But what intervention would the public accept?

The idea of eating plants and animals whose DNA has been manipulated in a laboratory — called genetically modified organisms, or G.M.O.’s — still spooks many people. Critics worry that such crops carry risks not yet detected, and distrust the big agrochemical companies that have produced the few in wide use. And hostility toward the technology, long ingrained in Europe, has deepened recently among Americans as organic food advocates, environmentalists and others have made opposition to it a pillar of a growing movement for healthier and ethical food choices.... http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/28/science/a-race-to-save-the-orange-by-altering-its-dna.html?ref=science&_r=0

http://www.cornucopia.org/2013/12/crushed-nutsrotten-apples-pasteurized-nuts-gmo-apples-tell-fda-usda/

The actual genetic engineering process includes insertion of nptII, neomycin phosphotransferase type II gene from E. coli Tn5.  This gene allows the transformed apple tissue to grow on a medium containing the antibiotic kanamycin but confers no benefit to the apple plant.
Every cell of every GE apple tree, including the fruit and the tree roots, will show resistance to kanamycin.  Kanamycin is a commonly used antibiotic in human medicine, used to treat a wide variety of infections.
    Eating an Arctic Apple could transfer the gene for kanamycin resistance into your digestive system.  A similar transfer has been demonstrated with GE soy.   There is a real possibility that bacteria in the human digestive systems could develop kanamycin resistance.  Antibiotic resistance is a major concern among medical professionals.
    Furthermore, the GE apple’s DNA can also spread to bacteria on the plant and in the soil.  Orchardists might very well find that controlling diseases of special concern like fireblight in orchards may become much more difficult.  And in the soil environment, the GE DNA can persist for at least a year, where it can be taken up by natural soil bacteria and then incorporated into their genetic structure.
There is no proof that Arctic Apples are harmless, but there is certainly reason to suspect that they may be harmful to humans, wildlife, and the soil environment.  Urge the USDA to reject approval of the Arctic Apple.  The unknown risks far outweigh the cosmetic value of an apple that doesn’t brown when sliced... http://www.cornucopia.org/2013/12/crushed-nutsrotten-apples-pasteurized-nuts-gmo-apples-tell-fda-usda/

GM Watch,

- ▶ 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.

If you are concerned about this, see the "what you can do" section on this page.... http://www.gmwatch.eu/latest-listing/1-news-items/14073-european-consultation-on-gm-animals

Note:  The issue is posed as climate change, when in fact the issue is habitat loss, pollution, poaching and creating imbalance within our natural ecosystems...all man-made.  Artificially altering our wildlife and nature will not change these basic essential facts that all life depends upon to survive... and the question arises "Who Will Own These Gene-Altered Animal Patents?"  The patenting of seed to control global food and agriculture has shown us that we should not rush into this believing the biotech industry has the well-being of the planet at heart.  http://www.nature.com/news/ecology-gene-tweaking-for-conservation-1.13790

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

 

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.

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.

                          Guardian Environment, June 23, 2014

-▶ TOXIC INSECTICIDES PUT WORLD FOOD SUPPLIES AT RISK, SAY SCIENTISTS. Regulations on pesticides have failed to prevent poisoning of almost all habitats, international team of scientists concludes. The world’s most widely used insecticides have contaminated the environment across the planet so pervasively that global food production is at risk, according to a comprehensive scientific assessment of the chemicals’ impacts.
    The researchers compare their impact with that reported in Silent Spring, the landmark 1962 book by Rachel Carson that revealed the decimation of birds and insects by the blanket use of DDT and other pesticides and led to the modern environmental movement.
    Billions of dollars’ worth of the potent and long-lasting neurotoxins are sold every year but regulations have failed to prevent the poisoning of almost all habitats, the international team of scientists concluded in the most detailed study yet. As a result, they say, creatures essential to global food production – from bees to earthworms – are likely to be suffering grave harm and the chemicals must be phased out... http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/jun/24/insecticides-world-food-supplies-risk

▶  AFRICAN FARMERS CUT USE OF 'TOXIC' PESTICIDES FOR NATURAL 'BIOPESTICIDES' . Cotton farmers in Mali have reduced their use of toxic pesticides and cut costs through an education project carried out by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, and partially funded by the European Union. The UN established field schools to train cotton farmers to use alternative forms of pest control, such as “biopesticides”, which led to a 92% decrease in the use of toxic pesticides. The use of the biopesticides, such as neem tree extract, meant that the farmers refrained from using an estimated 47,000 litres of synthesised pesticides, saving them nearly half a million dollars over the study period. The biopesticides, which had no negative impacts on yields, therefore proved to be three times more cost-effective than synthetic pesticides. http://www.euractiv.com/sustainability/african-farmers-cut-use-toxic-pe-news-533719

Harvard School of Public Health’s (HSPH) Chengsheng (Alex) Lu, an associate professor of environmental exposure biology,  believes that the potential human health implications of colony collapse disorder extend beyond the drop in pollination — though that is worrisome enough — to the impact on humans of long exposure to low-level poisons like neonicotinoid pesticides...links the pesticide to the recent increase in neurological conditions in children such as autism and ADHD. http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2014/08/are-failing-bees-our-warning-sign/

The neonicotinoids are "systemic" pesticides, being applied to seeds so that the chemical spreads within the plants. Over three-quarters of the world's food crops require insect pollination, but bees have declined in recent decades due to loss of flower-rich habitat, disease and pesticide use. http://www.euractiv.com/cap/pesticides-halve-bees-pollen-gat-news-533220

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

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

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

   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.

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
