18. Fracking Our Food Supply

The effects of hydraulic fracturing (or “fracking”) on food supply and the environment are slowly emerging. The fracking process runs contrary to safe sustainable food production.

Antibiotics, Steroids, GMO all in animal feeds. Would you take these toxins with every meal? WELL YOU ARE!

I have said for many years if 999 times out of 1000 we find that the additives cause sterility, cancer and dumb people down then lets face the facts the numbers are not lying you are purposely being poisoned. If you keep buying poison apples then they will be there to sell you poison apples. Drugged animal are by proxy human drugs sorry to say but the dumbing down of America and the world is obviously working when people cant make these simple correlations between weight gain/obesity epidemics and whats in the food. Poultry farmers, Pig and Cattle Farmers all know that massive amounts of cheap antibiotics are a very effective way to get animal weight gain its their dirty little secret but we all know this is also topped up with hormones and a slew of other very unnatural additives and vaccinations.

[i] Methyl bromide is a neurotoxin, a carcinogen, and an ozone depleter.  In accordance with the Montreal Protocol, it was slated to be banned, internationally, nearly 10 years ago.  The U.S. is currently only one of three countries advanced industrialized countries, which includes Australia and Canada) that still apply for annual exemptions to this ban. European Union countries no longer use it.  California strawberry growers use about 90 percent of all the methyl bromide used in the industrialized world.

"Plus, if you cast a swift, wide net across the other science out there, it turns up some pretty astonishing results. Studies show that mushrooms can help break down baby diapers and oil spills and harmful bacteria. Entrepreneurs are using mushrooms to replace Styrofoam in packing materials and car parts and turn them into home insulation. Some scientists even think certain kinds of mushrooms can help serve as a carbon sink and thus help mitigate climate change."

Radical hope for saving ocean fisheries – Megan Molteni – Aeon

Radical hope for saving ocean fisheries – Megan Molteni – Aeon | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it
Hope for the world's devastated oceans rests on a change in the hearts of the fishermen that know them best

.................""""""""""""""""""""""""""".................

........ 

The modernisation of the world’s fishing fleets was good for fishermen, but it was very bad for fish. Looking back at historical catch data, scientists estimate that the marine biomass of open-ocean communities declined by 80 per cent within 15 years of industrialised exploitation. The ocean has lost more than 90 per cent of its large predatory fishes — iconic species such as the bluefin tuna, the Atlantic cod, and the Pacific halibut.

 

How did this happen in less than a century? The simple answer is hubris. The notion that we could take and take from the seemingly limitless bounty of the sea without consequences has permeated everything from governmental policy to management efforts to fishing culture for decades. You see it in the government-subsidised expansion of the US fishing fleet despite falling catch rates; in modern management strategies that enabled fishermen to catch as much as possible in a given time frame; in a supply chain that encourages opacity and deceit at every stage. However, the more complicated answer is that we have managed (and mismanaged) economic incentives, consumer markets, scientific data, environmental policy and, above all, individual accountability. Fishermen get much of the blame for the state in which we find ourselves — this ‘race to the last fish’ — but they didn’t build this system by themselves.

 

They are, however, the ones with the power to change it.
