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

The Good Food, September 02, 2014

 ▶  SEED IS LIFE. SOIL IS LIFE. WATER IS LIFE

To increase profitability – and productivity – industrial agriculture has mechanized production processes and reduced options to a few highly controlled varieties. In the beginning of factory farming, one size was supposed to fit all and the landscape everywhere (including water and micro-climates) was to be engineered to accommodate only the selected commercial variety of plant or animal.... Of course, such defiance of nature caused serious problems and local ecosystems were thrown out of balance. The soil dried up and blew away. Insects and weeds invaded crops and destroyed yields. And so the arch controllers of nature invented pesticides and herbicides – and a highly profitable chemical industry was born to rule over the land.

Capitalism and the accompanying industrial revolution promised to free us from the bonds of nature, limit the quality and variety of products, and greatly increase the quantity of sales necessary to consolidate power and wealth. Over the relative short time the industrial system has been in place, it has separated us entirely from our organic roots – physically and spiritually. And everything has become artificially fabricated outside of nature: our society, our religions, and certainly most of our food... http://www.goodfoodworld.com/2014/09/seed-is-life-soil-is-life-water-is-life/

MAIZE, RICE, WHEAT FARMING MUST BECOME MORE SUSTAINABLE: FAO. The FAO meeting agreed that agriculture can no longer rely on input-intensive agriculture to increase crop production. Improved varieties of maize, rice and wheat must go hand-in-hand with what FAO calls "Save and Grow" farming systems that keep soil healthy, integrate crop, tree and animal production, use water far more efficiently, and protect crops with integrated pest management..Experts at the meeting said that that challenge could only be met with eco-friendly agriculture that achieves higher productivity while conserving natural resources, adapting to climate change, and delivering economic benefits to the world's 500 million small-scale family farms.

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

2,4-D SOY:  WAGING WAR ON PEASANTS  Global attempts by Dow AgroSciences to gain approval for new genetically-modified soybean varieties resistant to the herbicide 2,4-D have become particularly aggressive in recent months. Simultaneous applications have been filed in several of the countries where genetically engineered crops (GE or transgenic crops or GMOs) were introduced in the 1990s.
   The push for approval of new transgenics is part of a broader strategy by agribusiness to make the world’s farms increasingly dependent on its toxic herbicides, thus increasing the profits it derives from selling these chemicals. The current situation is a rerun of the 1990s’ introduction of Roundup Ready (glyphosate-resistant) crops, only this time the herbicides in question are much more toxic. These weed-killers have been around for a longer time and the case for their hazardousness to human health and the environment has been well documented. http://www.grain.org/article/entries/4945-2-4-d-soy-waging-war-on-peasants

MAYAN PEOPLE'S MOVEMENT DEFEATS MONSANTO LAW IN GUATEMALA. There was a great risk that the Monsanto Law would have made criminals of already repressed small farmers who are just trying to make ends meet and doing what they have done for generations – cultivating corn and black beans for their own consumption. The Monsanto Law meant that they would not have been able to grow and harvest anything that originates from natural seeds. Farmers would be breaking the laws if these natural seeds had been mixed with patented seeds from other crops as a result of pollination or wind, unless they had had a license for the patented seed from a transnational corporation like Monsanto. .. The Monsanto Law would have given exclusivity on patented seeds to a handful of transnational companies....the Mayan people – or actually most people – in Guatemala do not agree with a policy of treating nature like a commodity to be sold off piece by piece, ...http://pambazuka.net/en/category/features/92994

                                               VIDEO REPORT

                               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 →

The Economist, December 2, 2014
- ▶  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

USA GOVERNMENT HIDING BEHIND "NATIONAL SECURITY"...AGAIN. BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, US CONGRESS QUIETLY SELLING OUR MEAT, POULTRY AND MILK OUT FROM UNDER US TO CHINA.


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

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".

 

                            BAN GMOs NOW - SPECIAL REPORT

                                   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

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.

                                                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

The marketing claim 'antibacterial' still sells soap. That apparently means that people are not afraid of superbugs developing due to the constant evolutionary pressure of low levels of antibiotics in the environment. Fear of frog-disruptors  has not slowed the growth of this product sector. http://www.treehugger.com/health/another-reason-stop-buying-antibacterial-soap-will-it-finally-be-banned.html

                             WHAT THE RESEARCH SHOWS.
A growing list of household and personal care products are advertised as “antibacterial” because they contain a chemical called triclosan. While the manufacturers of these products want you to think triclosan protects you from harmful bacteria, it turns out that it may be doing more harm than good. Here is a summary of research from 60 studies on how triclosan impacts human health and the environment.  http://www.beyondpesticides.org/antibacterial/triclosan-research-3-09.pd

-▶ THE BIG 6: BIGGER AND BADDER. The public comment period for Dow's new genetically engineered,  pesticide 2,4-D-resistant corn and soy closed. And despite comments from nearly 400,000 concerned individuals and farmers urging otherwise, USDA has signaled it will likely greenlight these new GE crops. http://www.panna.org/blog/big-6-bigger-badder


GRAIN, May 26, 2014
2,4-D SOY:  WAGING WAR ON PEASANTS  Global attempts by Dow AgroSciences to gain approval for new genetically-modified soybean varieties resistant to the herbicide 2,4-D have become particularly aggressive in recent months. Simultaneous applications have been filed in several of the countries where genetically engineered crops (GE or transgenic crops or GMOs) were introduced in the 1990s.
   The push for approval of new transgenics is part of a broader strategy by agribusiness to make the world’s farms increasingly dependent on its toxic herbicides, thus increasing the profits it derives from selling these chemicals. The current situation is a rerun of the 1990s’ introduction of Roundup Ready (glyphosate-resistant) crops, only this time the herbicides in question are much more toxic. These weed-killers have been around for a longer time and the case for their hazardousness to human health and the environment has been well documented. http://www.grain.org/article/entries/4945-2-4-d-soy-waging-war-on-peasants

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.

▶  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...

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.”

 - ▶  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.

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

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, February 5, 2014 7:17 AM

We need to know what the mega-farms that produce much of our food are planning to do so we can stop them and avoid their destruction.

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, February 5, 2014 7:21 AM

We need to know what the mega farms are planning to do with food production so we can  avoid it and stop it.

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, February 5, 2014 7:24 AM

We need to be aware of what mega farming is planning for future food production. Will we be in time to stop this totally destructive, self-serving industry that will kill us all if allowed to carry out their intentions?

 - ▶  CHINA CLONING PIGS ON AN 'INDUSTRIAL SCALE - CLONE UPON CLONE UPON CLONE -The scale of ambition is staggering. 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.

...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

Nothing new here."

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

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

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.

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

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

▶  CORNSTALKS EVERYWHERE BUT NOTHING ELSE, NOT EVEN A BEE

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

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

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

Common Dreams, Ronnie Cummins

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 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-

▶ APOCALYPSE OF THE "HAPPY MEAL" WORSHIPING THE GOLDEN CALF. What we set on our tables, and chow down on at fast-food restaurants, may be contributing more to the acceleration of climate change and human extinction than some of the usual carbon-emitting culprits. Throughout the world, native grasslands, forests and wild species have been burned, butchered and brutalized for cattle ranches.

▶ 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/

                REDUCING GROWTH HORMONES USE IN FOOD ANIMALS
Up to 70 percent of all antibiotics sold in the U.S. are used in food animals. For years, farmers and ranchers have used antibiotics to help food animals grow faster on less feed. This practice, known as “growth promotion,” http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/trouble-with-antibiotics/

- ▶  A MEAT GIANT GOBBLES UP ANOTHER MEAT GIANT:  GRAPHS

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

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

Now, the industry lobbyists are working to reduce the number of inspectors in slaughterhouses, while speeding up the kill and processing lines. "But the chickens already move down the disassembly lines “obscenely fast, in my opinion,” http://grist.org/food/a-meat-giant-gobbles-up-another-meat-giant/

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.

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.

'FOOD CHAINS,' A NEW DOCUMENTARY BY 'FOOD, INC." Food Chains, a new hard-hitting documentary about the battle between Florida farmworkers and the giant supermarket and fast food conglomerates. Farmworkers are among the lowest paid workers in America, averaging about $12,000 per year in wages, and many of them, especially women, have been subjected to human rights abuses in the fields. In its review of the film, The New York Times calls Food Chains an “emphatic and empathetic documentary” that presents farm laborers as modern-day slaves  http://billmoyers.com/2014/11/21/food-chains/

A team of scientists from Yale University in the U.S and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, in Germany, say junk food diets could be partly to blame. “This study is the first to indicate that excess refined and processed salt may be one of the environmental factors driving the increased incidence of autoimmune diseases”, they said. http://wakeup-world.com/2014/09/04/scientists-officially-link-processed-foods-to-autoimmune-disease/

     The United States is in the midst of a public health epidemic due to poor diet. While much of the focus has been on obvious culprits such as sugary soft drinks and fast food, dairy foods often get a pass. The dairy industry, propped up by government, has convinced us of the health benefits of milk and other dairy products. But the context of how people consume dairy matters. My new report, Whitewashed: How Industry and Government Promote Dairy Junk Foods, shines a light on the shifting patterns of consumption away from plain milk toward dairy products laden with sugar, fat, and salt. http://ecowatch.com/2014/06/11/dairy-industry-government-promote-junk-foods/

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/

The ranks of the hungry were expanding while the ranks of farmers were thinning. Meanwhile, science was fascinated by biotechnology – the idea that we could genetically engineer crops and livestock (and people) with traits that could overcome all our problems. Agribusiness saw an opportunity to extract the enormous surplus value that was laced throughout the food chain. The hugely decentralized food system held pockets of profit just crying out to be centralized.  All the biotechnology industry had to do is chase away the competition and coerce governments into surrendering control. ....http://www.etcgroup.org/content/who-owns-nature

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

                          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

                                        SILENCING SCIENCE

We speak with scientist Tyrone Hayes of the University of California, Berkeley, who discovered a widely used herbicide may have harmful effects on the endocrine system. But when he tried to publish the results, the chemical’s manufacturer launched a campaign to discredit his work. Hayes was first hired in 1997 by a company, which later became agribusiness giant Syngenta, to study their product, atrazine, a pesticide that is applied to more than half the corn crops in the United States, and widely used on golf courses and Christmas tree farms. When Hayes found results Syngenta did not expect — that atrazine causes sexual abnormalities in frogs, and could cause the same problems for humans — it refused to allow him to publish his findings. A new article in The New Yorker magazine uses court documents from a class action lawsuit against Syngenta to show how it sought to smear Hayes’ reputation and prevent the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency from banning the profitable chemical, which is already banned by the European Union.... http://www.democracynow.org/2014/2/21/silencing_the_scientist_tyrone_hayes_on
