Celiac Awareness Tour, Media Madness And Jon Stewart

Celiac Awareness Tour, Media Madness And Jon Stewart | Maui Farmers Union United | Scoop.it
I can officially say the Celiac Awareness Jennifer's Way Book Tour is finally finished and wow what a ride.
Jim Hall's insight:
While people have labeled Celiac as a disease, as Jennifer and Jon Stewart's son learned, it's the destruction of the intestinal vili that is essential to a proper digestive system. Food, drink and medication destroy it and soon the whole body reacts and the symptoms are many, from mental, depression to actual break-down of the whole body. Many diseases "exist" that are merely symptoms of celiac, which is really a symptom of not eating and drinking real foods and using medications to treat the symptoms of a bad nutritional lifestyle. Even gluten has become a problem due to modified foods increasing the gluten and our lack of ability to process it with a weakened digestive system.

Power of the People: Hawaiians Take on Monsanto & GMOs - A Live Online Panel Discussion

Power of the People: Hawaiians Take on Monsanto & GMOs - A Live Online Panel Discussion | Maui Farmers Union United | Scoop.it
Hawaiians are taking on GMOs in their community and what happens there affects us all! Join us for an inspirational and informative panel discussion featuring major players in the battle against GMOs in Hawaii.
Jim Hall's insight:

The island of Kauai is being sued by four of the biggest chemical companies in the world because these companies don't want to follow a law requiring them to disclose what and how much poison they are spraying. Maui's residents are organizing by the thousands to get a GMO moratorium on the ballet they can vote on. Mothers, farmers, and every day citizens are saying NO to being poisoned, and saying YES to protecting their land and smarter agriculture. Learn how with GMO-expert Jeffrey Smith, farmers, mothers, and community leaders as they discuss how Hawaiians are advancing the next chapter of an epic civil and rights of nature struggle.

The SHAKA Movement: More Mainland Money to Maui | Aole GMO ... | Maui Farmers Union United | Scoop.it
The conspiracy and UFO folks also have convinced the Hawaii Farmers Union United to join in on this ideology too. In their last Maui Farmers Union United newsletter, they placed a link on there to have people join in.
Jim Hall's insight:

I don't know one way or the other, but do get leary of how far big money interests will go in creating fictitious entities to manipulate all aspects. But this is something people more educated than me need to look at.

Larry Ellison plans to grow food on Lanai through aquaponics, hydroponics - Pacific Business News

Larry Ellison plans to grow food on Lanai through aquaponics, hydroponics - Pacific Business News | Maui Farmers Union United | Scoop.it
Jim Hall's insight:
Spoke to people on Lanai about aquaponics and a co-worker was even doing some, before Ellison bought the island. I figured it was a matter of time and I'm glad to see he's moving ahead with it. I still would like to see it being done on a backyard scale as I did it on Maui. Great for the water situation on Lanai.

Oregon Hopes to Be First State to Map GMO Fields

Oregon Hopes to Be First State to Map GMO Fields | Maui Farmers Union United | Scoop.it
Before residents in southern Oregon overwhelmingly voted to ban genetically modified crops last month, farmers negotiated for months with a biotech company that grows engineered sugar beets near their fields.
Jim Hall's insight:
"Monsanto and other biotech outfits that hold patents to GE seeds resist publicly disclosing GMO field locations for competitive reasons. They claim farmers already coexist throughout the U.S. and more monitoring isn't needed."

Obama Signs Monsanto Protection Act

Obama Signs Monsanto Protection Act | Maui Farmers Union United | Scoop.it
Update: This is the power of activism. Due to the spreading of awareness about this story through alternative media, this act was shut down by senate and is now no longer effective. It was officially labeled the Farmer Assurance Provision under Sec.
Jim Hall's insight:
"Opponents of agricultural biotechnology have repeatedly filed suits against USDA on procedural grounds in order to disrupt the regulatory process and undermine the science-based regulation of such products. These lawsuits have also created tremendous resources constraints for USDA and have resulted in significant delays in approval of new, innovative products that will help growers provide Americans with an abundant and economical food supply while remaining competitive in the world market. Activist groups have made it clear they will continue to use the court system to challenge regulatory approvals of corn, soybean and other biotechnology derived crops, and have openly stated their intention to use litigation as a way to impede the availability of new technology to growers and consumers  - Monsanto Corp"
