ANOTHER INSANE IRRESPONSIBLE RUSH TO MARKET OF YET ANOTHER UNTESTED BIOTECHNOLOGY THAT COULD HARM BOTH HUMAN AND ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH

Summit County Citizens Voice, April 03, 2015
- ▶ EPA TO START TRACKING NANOSCALE CHEMICALS. 

Despite the promise of nanoscale materials, scientists know there is potential for negative environmental impacts. In a 2012 study, researchers with the University of Alaska and the U.S. Geological Survey found that carbon nanotubes can kill aquatic organisms.

Other studies show impacts on plant growth, and damage to nerve cells of trout. And in 2011, studies of Arctic soil samples suggest that silver nanoparticles — commonly used in anti-bacterial agents — are killing important nitrogen-fixing bacteria in remote areas generally thought to be free of pollution. http://summitcountyvoice.com/2015/04/03/environment-epa-to-start-tracking-nanoscale-chemicals/

- ▶ THE NEXT CRISIS: UNREGULATED, UNTESTED NANOTECHNOLOGY BREAKTHROUGH COULD POSE THREAT TO ENVIRONMENT, FOOD AND YOUR HEALTH. Fast-developing know-how makes our khakis resist stains, artificial bones more practical and diesel burn more efficiently.That nanotechnology builds microscopic wonders inhabiting a man-made universe that smothers stink and mops up pollution by working on a scale that makes a dust mite look gargantuan.

Research, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences earlier this year, raises fresh worries about nanotechnology. Some critics say it’s becoming quickly integrated into the modern economy and the world environment faster than scientists can sort out its potential dangers.“We need to put together a model where we’re thinking this through before we get to a point that we can’t undo it,” said Patty Lovera, an assistant director of the consumer advocacy group Food & Water Watch.

Modern Farmer, January 15, 2015
- ▶ EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT NANOPESTICIDES. ...the unique physical properties of the nano-scale call into question the particles’ environmental fate. Once they’re sprayed on fields, will they clump on crops or slide through the soil into water bodies? Most worrisome, Harper wonders whether they will be readily taken up by organisms that aren’t pests (such as bees or fish), and how long they will persist in the environment — properties that could radically change with size. “We just don’t know,” ...

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

 

January 12, 2013 - Science News

▶  THE FACTORY OF LIFE

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

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

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

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

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

"Improved sunscreens are just one of the many innovative uses of nanotechnology, which involves drastically shrinking and fundamentally changing the structure of chemical compounds. But products made with nanomaterials also raise largely unanswered safety questions — such as whether the particles that make them effective can be absorbed into the bloodstream and are toxic to living cells."... http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-07-10/health/ct-met-nanotechnology-20120710_1_nanoparticles-sunscreens-chad-mirkin

Nano-pesticides Sneaked onto the Market (and Consumer Products) without regulation or oversight

Nano-pesticides Sneaked onto the Market (and Consumer Products) without regulation or oversight | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Vienna, Austria (SPX) Jun 25, 2012 - Thilo Hofmann, dean elected at the Faculty of Geosciences, Geography and Astronomy of the University of Vienna.

"Solution or threat for a cleaner and greener agriculture?"
"Nano-pesticide research is emerging at high speed at the agrochemical labs, however, this topic has not reached public awareness or state authorities so far, nor are any products available at the marked.Nano-pesticides encompass a great variety of products, some of which are already on the market. However, nano-pesticides may also create new kinds of contamination of soils and waterways due to enhanced transport, longer persistence and higher toxicity.

 

The application of nano-pesticides would be the only intentional diffuse input of large quantities of engineered nano-particles into the environment. However, the risk that nano-particles may pose to human and environment health is not yet fully understood. The precautionary principle therefore suggests keeping environmental release of nano-particles minimal until their fate and toxicity is better understood.

"A good understanding of nano-materials is essential to evaluate whether the benefits overcome potential new risks", explains Thilo Hofmann, dean elected at the Faculty of Geosciences, Geography and Astronomy of the University of Vienna.....

pdjmoo's insight:

With the USA Government co-opted by the mega corporations, Real change in the broken food system needs to be brought about by people - the farmers, producers, consumers and communities who want equal access to healthy food and a healthy environment.

January 12, 2013 - Science News

▶  THE FACTORY OF LIFE

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

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

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

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

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

"TOXIN TOXOUT" HOW DO I GET THIS STUFF OUT OF MY BODY? Countless toxins enter our bodies on a daily basis, whether it’s from driving in a brand new car for a few hours, using conventional cosmetics and skin care products, or eating certain foods. Even for those of us who carefully avoid pesticides, parabens, and phthalates whenever possible, we can’t help but come into contact with them because of their ubiquitous presence in the world. http://www.treehugger.com/health/toxin-toxout-must-read-how-detoxify-our-bodies-and-our-lives-book-review.html

I chose this as it emphisizes the need to know what is in our food where it comes from and how it is produced.

July 30th 2012 - Green Media Info: You Think GMO Is Scary? Nano Tech is Here, In Your Store - WITH LITTLE OR NO REGULATION OR OVERSIGHT !!!

 

Nanotechnology is measured in billionths of a meter, encompassing all aspects of life from food to medicine, clothing, to space. Imagine hundreds of microcomputers on the width of a strand of hair programmed for specific tasks....in your body. Sound good?

It is possible for nano-particles to slip through the skin, suggestive of a potential unnatural interaction with the immune system, or when micro particles enter the blood-stream. Some sunscreens on the shelf today, for instance, have nano-particles that might be able to penetrate the skin, move between organs, with unknown health effects. Nano-particles in cosmetics have few regulations done by FDA... http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/you-think-gmo-scary-nano-tech-here-your-store
