What You Need to Know About Growing Millet

What You Need to Know About Growing Millet | Permaculture, Homesteading & Green Technology | Scoop.it

"Millet is a fast-growing late-season crop, is easily adaptable in the kitchen and outstrips many more common grains as a nutritional powerhouse.

 

Millet won’t compete, pound for pound, as hay or pasture with legumes in nutritional value, but it has other advantages. Thirty days after you plant it you can be using it. No legume can make that claim. It has good insect resistance and is relatively free of disease, which together with its ability to grow on rather poor land makes it a desirable crop for any organic grower not wanting to use commercial fertilizers."

BIO E® World: GMO Sweet Corn - Buyers Beware!

BIO E® World: GMO Sweet Corn - Buyers Beware! | Permaculture, Homesteading & Green Technology | Scoop.it

"Monsanto and the EPA swore that the genetically engineered corn would only harm insects. The Bt-toxin produced inside the plant would be completely destroyed in the human digestive system and would not have any impact at all on consumers, they claimed. Alas, they’ve been proven wrong on that account as well, because not only is Bt corn producing resistant “super-pests,” researchers have also found that the Bt-toxin can indeed wreak havoc on human health.

 

Bt-Toxin Now Found in Many People’s Blood!"

Children Exposed To More Brain-Damaging Chemicals Than Scientists Thought

Children Exposed To More Brain-Damaging Chemicals Than Scientists Thought | Permaculture, Homesteading & Green Technology | Scoop.it

"Alarmingly, the researchers discovered that manganese and fluoride, both of which are present in drinking water, can lead to poorer performance in school, lower math scores, and increased hyperactivity. High levels of fluoride, in particular, are potentially capable of lowering a child's IQ by seven points. Chlorpyrifos, meanwhile, is a common pesticide that is still used in public areas and in agriculture despite the fact that the Environmental Protection Agency banned it from residential areas in 2001. According to a report by CNN in 2012, even low levels of chlorpyrifos could result in disrupted brain development."
