Investigative Report: Soaring Pesticide Use and Poisoning Linked to GE Crop Production

Investigative Report: Soaring Pesticide Use and Poisoning Linked to GE Crop Production | L'isola del Bio | Scoop.it

Beyond Pesticides, October 22, 2013

▶   INVESTIGATIVE REPORT FINDS SOARING PESTICIDE USE AND POISONING LINKED TO GMO CROP PRODUCTION

An Associated Press (AP) investigation links the effect of their work to soaring pesticide use and resulting health problems. According to the AP, the advent of “no-till” farming methods in Argentina with the use of genetically engineered (GE) crops and companion pesticides has caused significant health impacts in farming towns abutting GE fields. Since the introduction of these practices in Argentina by agrichemical companies such as Monsanto, cancer rates have skyrocketed and the number of birth defects has quadrupled.... http://www.beyondpesticides.org/dailynewsblog/?p=12090

▶ SPREAD OF GM CROPS ILLEGALLY OUT OF CONTROL IN MANY COUNTRIES. Testbiotech published the first global overview showing how genetically engineered plants (GM crops) such as maize, rice, cotton, oilseed rape, bentgrass and poplar trees are spreading uncontrollably. This is happening in regions and countries such as the USA and Canada, Middle America, Japan, China, Australia and Europe. In many cases, the plants have escaped far beyond the fields into the environment. In some regions, the transgenes have already moved into populations of wild relatives.... http://sustainablepulse.com/2013/11/12/spread-of-gm-crops-out-of-control-in-many-countries-breaking-news/#.UoLV-o3piRQ

Therapeutic Hemp Oil, by Andrew Weil, M.D

Therapeutic Hemp Oil, by Andrew Weil, M.D | L'isola del Bio | Scoop.it

Hemp seeds contain 25% high quality protein and 40% fat in the form of an excellent quality oil.

 

Hemp oil is just now coming on the market. Produced by the Ohio Hempery in Athens, Ohio, it will be sold through natural food stores in small, opaque bottles to be kept under refrigeration. It has a remarkable fatty acid profile, being high in the desirable omega-3s and also delivering some GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) that is absent from the fats we normally eat.

 

Nutritionally oriented doctors believe all of these compounds to be beneficial to health.

 

Hemp oil contains 57% linoleic (LA) and 19% linolenic (LNA) acids, in the three-to-one ratio that matches our nutritional needs. These are the essential fatty acids (EFAs)-so called because the body cannot make them and must get them from external sources. The best sources are oils from freshly ground grains and whole seeds.

Alcune proposte per una dieta vegetariana equilibrata | L'isola del Bio | Scoop.it

Per essere vegetariani occorre avere una grande motivazione, che può essere salutistica o di coscienza contro le sofferenza degli animali, ma di sicuro è una scelta che va fatta con consapevolezza e non una moda.

 

Per poter mantenere questo stile di vita, occorre sapere come gestire la dieta vegetariana senza incorrere in carenze alimentari (come quella riguardante la vitamina B12) e malattie, quindi attenzione ed equilibrio sono fondamentali.

 

Per pianificare una dieta vegetariana equilibrata si possono assumere per un certo periodo integratori a base di cobalamina, o cianocobalamina, la vera vitamina B12.

Poi il corpo imparerà da solo ad autoregolarsi.

A number of vital summary here. It is in your interest that you understand the key issues and get to the bottom of what is going on. AND TAKE ACTION.

 

The plan is to control food in such a manner that accessibility to food no more remains your right. That fundamental right has been undermined already; all that remains is a formal announcement.

This is a hugely important issue.
