RSPB demands ban on deadly pesticides linked to bee decline

RSPB demands ban on deadly pesticides linked to bee decline | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Feb 21, 2013 The Independent

Controversial nerve-agent pesticides widely linked to decline in bees around the world should be banned, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) says today.

More than 30 separate scientific studies in the last three years have shown adverse effects on insects from neonicotinoids, which are "systemic" insecticides, meaning they enter every part of the target plants – including the pollen and nectar which bees harvest.... http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/nature/rspb-demands-ban-on-deadly-pesticides-linked-to-bee-decline-8503950.html

pdjmoo's insight:

Common Sense and critical thinking do not require a Scientific Ph.D.   If these highly toxic pesticides and chemicals are destroying our biodiverity and beneficial insects, what do you think they might be doing to our human body.  FEB 23, 2013 MONSANTO's "ROUNDUP" IS MORE TOXIC THAN DECLARED PROVES NEW SERALINI STUDY http://www.occupymonsanto360.org/2013/02/23/roundup-is-more-toxic-than-declared-proves-new-seralini-study/ Could they be having the same impact resulting in Alzheimer's and other neurological deficits?  And what about the food we eat that have been sprayed with these poisons?  And what about the honey that these poor bees produce?  Is that contaminated too?  Time for the big global chemical companies to take responsibility for what they're doing to our planet and we humans with little or no disclosure, regulation or oversight, like gigantic ships in the night slipping under the safety radar screen.

-▶  'MONSANTO PROTECTION ACT' QUIETLY EXTENDED BY CONGRESS'

A budget provision protecting genetically-modified seeds from litigation in the face of health risks was extended for three months in an approved US House of Representatives’ spending bill on Tuesday evening.

Called “The Monsanto Protection Act” by opponents, the budget rider shields biotech behemoths like Monsanto, Cargill and others from the threat of lawsuits and bars federal courts from intervening to force an end to the sale of a GMO (genetically-modified organism) even if the genetically-engineered product causes damaging health effects.

PESTICIDES ARE POISON...PERIOD

There’s nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe oil, the rice, the cauliflower. Once they have established the norm: that seed can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on them for every seed we grow of every crop we grow. If they control seed, they control food, they know it — it’s strategic. It’s more powerful than bombs. It’s more powerful than guns. Now they are genetically engineering our trees, fish, meat, and all food... can this unrelenting, unregulated, unlabeled, juggernaut be paused until we have sufficient legitimate independently-funded peer-reviewed scientific studies that guarantee that neither human nor environmental health will be devastatingly impacted in either the short or long-term?  We're rushing these gmo's to market so fast there is no time to seriously determine their pros and cons, without the gigantic biotech industry's pr machine bombarding us with glowing stories.

Seed Monopolies and GMOs... The Biotech Cartel End Game ... the point of no return | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
When most of us think of Monsanto, we think of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, as...

But what if the potential health risks of GMOs were actually not the biggest concern when it comes to Monsanto and the handful of other mega-corporations that now dominate the seed industry?...

Unfortunately, these questions are not part of some crazed, anti-corporate conspiracy theory. They are the questions that we should be asking based on the current realities on the ground in farm country. And it’s important that we answer them quickly if we are to have any chance to avert the potential disaster that is looming on the horizon, a disaster perhaps best described as Monsanto’s point of no return.

Big Food puts its back into fighting GMO labeling in California | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

July 31, 2012 GRIST

In case you had any doubt that California’s Prop 37 – which would require labeling of food containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) — poses a significant threat to the food industry, a top food lobby has now made it perfectly clear that it does.

The Grocery Manufacturers Association -- a group that includes PepsiCo, General Mills, and Monsanto -- has made fighting California's Prop 37 its "highest priority."...  http://grist.org/food/big-food-puts-its-back-into-fighting-gmo-labeling-in-california/

The Great Escape: Gene-altered crops out of control -  grow wild. | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

— Environmental Health News

Throughout North Dakota, little yellow flowers dot thousands of miles of roadsides. These canola plants, found along most major trucking routes, look harmless. But they are fueling a controversy: They prove that large numbers of genetically modified plants have escaped from farm fields and are now growing wild. About 80 percent of canola growing along roadsides in North Dakota contains genes that have been modified to make the plants resistant to common weed-killers.

A new, crowd-sourced website plans to document every angle of the food system. Given its stated aim of documenting "the entire food system", and given that ANYONE can upload photos and tell the story of their food, it seems like there is an opportunity for activists to tell the stories of the industrial food system through this platform too.

GMOs, Seed Wars and Knowledge Wars

GMOs, Seed Wars and Knowledge Wars | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
The only way corporations can push GMO seeds on farmers is by destroying alternatives.

31 October 2012 - TruthOut

The only reason crops have been genetically engineered is to take patents on seeds, and collect royalties. If during colonialism the concept of Terra Nullius, empty land, allowed the takeover of land and territories by the colonizer, a new concept of Bio Nullius, empty life, is being used to claim “intellectual property rights” on seeds, biodiversity and life forms. But life is not empty. Seeds are not an invention. They embody millions of years of biological evolution, and thousands of years of cultural evolution and farmers breeding....  http://truth-out.org/news/item/12456-gmos-seed-wars-and-knowledge-wars

Multi-million dollar investments from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation -a major AGRA donor- into shares in biotech corporations, and revolving doors between donors and these corporations skew the agenda of AGRA in favor of profit-based, corporate-led farming rather than farming benefiting local people and small farmers.

Reclaiming the seed: The First Link In The Food Chain | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

August 20, 2012 THE ECOLOGIST by Vandana Shiva

Besides displacing and destroying diversity, patented GMO seeds are also undermining seed sovereignty. Across the world, new seed laws are being introduced which enforce compulsory registration of seed, thus making it impossible for small farmers to grow their own diversity, and forcing them into dependency on giant seed corporations. Corporations are also patenting climate resilient seeds evolved by farmers, thus robbing farmers of using their own seeds and knowledge for climate adaptation.

Another threat to seed and seed sovereignty is genetic contamination of seed. India has lost its cotton seeds because of contamination from Bt. Cotton. Canada has lost its canola seed because of contamination from Roundup Ready canola. Mexico has lost its corn because of contamination from GMO Corn.... http://www.theecologist.org/News/news_analysis/1547185/reclaiming_the_seed.html

The Tragic Mistake That Now Threatens 1 Out of Every 3 Bites You Eat

The Tragic Mistake That Now Threatens 1 Out of Every 3 Bites You Eat | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

The documentary film "Vanishing of the Bees" unveils the phenomenon called Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) and the real causes of bee death all over the U.S."

The danger of accumulated pesticides in the environment and the lack of USA federal agency oversight in favor of manufacturers's studies without independent review is a major cause for concern.  90% of food we eat is treated with pesticides, over a billion pounds of these toxic chemicals are used annually on the huge agricultural western monocrop farms.

Before releasing these highly toxic chemicals into our environment, a responsible nation would ensure that independent interdisciplinary studies are carried out to determine affects on both our ecosystems AND human health.

Activist Post: Monsanto Investor Bill Gates Says GMO Crops Needed to Fight Starvation

Activist Post: Monsanto Investor Bill Gates Says GMO Crops Needed to Fight Starvation | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Bill Gates, the heavy Monsanto investor who purchased 500,000 shares of the biotech giant in 2010, has been touting Monsanto’s genetically modified creations as a tool that is necessary to prevent starvation in poor nations. The same poor nations where thousands of farmers routinely commit suicide after being completely bankrupt by Monsanto’s overpriced and ineffective GM seeds.

FOOD ALLERGIES Turn an Unlikely Wall Street Mom into a Food evangelist TED VIDEO 2011

Robyn O'Brien, child-health advocate, shares her personal story and how it inspired her current path as a "Real Food" evangelist. Grounded in a successful Wall Street career that was more interested in food as good business than good-for-you, this mother of four was shaken awake by the dangerous allergic reaction of one of her children to a "typical" breakfast. Her mission to unearth the cause revealed more about the food industry than she could stomach, and impelled her to share her findings with others. Informative and inspiring Robyn O'Brien @unhealthytruth

GM crops undermining sustainable weed control and sustainable agriculture

This BioScience piece documents not only the current state of glyphosate resistant weeds, but also ties the development of genetically engineered herbicide resistant crops, especially 2,4-D and dicamba resistant crops, to the decline of sustainable weed management, and to the decline of sustainable agriculture more generally.

Much of the crop loss and farmers suicides happen only in areas where there is monocropping. Can you ever show me an instance of failure in multi-cropping?”
