Fracking Threatens America’s Air, Water and Climate


It poisons our water, contaminates our air and emits massive greenhouse gas pollution.
Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, involves blasting huge volumes of water mixed with toxic chemicals and sand deep into the earth to fracture rock formations and release oil and natural gas. This extreme form of energy production endangers our health and wildlands.

The Invisible Nuclear Threat Within Non-Organic Food

The Invisible Nuclear Threat Within Non-Organic Food | Government, Important Issues, and Activism | Scoop.it
The FDA presently supports and actively promotes the use of Cobalt-60 culled from Nuclear Reactors as a form of "electronic pasteurization" on all domestically produced conventional food. The use of euphemisms like "food additive" and "pasteurization" to describe the process of blasting food with high levels of gamma-radiation can not obviate the fact that the very same death-rays generated by thermonuclear warfare to destroy life are now being applied to food to "make it safer."

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, June 29, 10:10 AM

Do you trust the FDA? Did you know that conventional food is irradiated by order of the FDA which deems irradiation safe and helps to extend shelf life?  Link to FDA.gov site provided.

 

Interested in being healthy? Your best bet is to buy organic or certified organic and look for labels that say non-GMO.. Buying organic, according to this article, is not so much about what it does contain (nutrients, vitamins, minerals), but more about what it doesn't contain (irradiation, GMOs).

 

It's also about "paying now" for healthy food which helps to keep you healthy or "paying later" as in getting chronic diseases and paying doctor/hospital bills. It's always about choices and not always easy when you have a large family. Be wise, be safe., be healthy.

News Release: GMOs Linked to Exploding Gluten Sensitivity Epidemic (FREE PDF) - StumbleUpon | Government, Important Issues, and Activism | Scoop.it

Do you or a loved one suffer from gluten sensitivity? You may be wondering why you react to gluten now even though you never did in the past. You may be wondering why a gluten-free diet has helped, but has not completely resolved your symptoms. If you are on a quest to find all of the pieces to the gluten puzzle, the following information is for you. In a report released today by the Institute for Responsible Technology, a team of experts proposes a possible link between genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and gluten-related disorders. The analysis is based on Dept. of Agriculture data, Environmental Protection Act records, medical journal reviews, and international research.

Hospitals hope to predict illness by analyzing your spending habits

Hospitals hope to predict illness by analyzing your spending habits | Government, Important Issues, and Activism | Scoop.it

Advertisers aren't the only ones interested in your spending habits — hospitals and insurance companies are taking note as well. Carolinas HealthCare, which operates hundreds of healthcare facilities from hospitals to nursing homes and care centers throughout North and South Carolina, is purchasing transaction data and other information on its patients to try and get ahead of any medical problems, according toBloomberg Businessweek.

 

The data, including purchase history and information like car loans, is put through an algorithm that gives a risk score to patients. That score can then be shared with doctors. A representative from Carolinas HealthCare tells the magazine that it plans to start routinely giving those scores to health-care professionals in two years' time, and it hopes to do more with the data.

 

It currently can't pass along detailed information — like what its patients are purchasing — to doctors, but the company hopes it can renegotiate with its (undisclosed) data provider to give professionals access to that as well. Nevertheless, under the current system, data like whether patients have open gym memberships or how often they purchase cigarettes is used in the score calculation.

 

Both insurance companies and hospitals are interested in using consumer data in this way to help cut costs. While insurance companies are no longer allowed to increase premiums or deny coverage under Obamacare based on preexisting health conditions, companies can save money by trying to proactively prevent health conditions based on the data. Alternatively, hospitals can identify patients who are likely to heavily lean on emergency room visits instead of regular check-ups, and proactively provide resources to help cut down costly ER trips.

America Is Running Out of Water | VICE United States ("unsustainable overuse = vanishing resource")

America Is Running Out of Water | VICE United States ("unsustainable overuse = vanishing resource") | Government, Important Issues, and Activism | Scoop.it
Although most Americans believe water scarcity occurs only in countries where Angelina Jolie campaigns for peace, two of the world’s most overexerted rivers are right here in the United States.

Although most Americans believe water scarcity occurs only in countries where Angelina Jolie campaigns for peace, two of the world’s most overexerted rivers are right here in the United States. According to the World Resource Institute, both the Colorado and Rio Grande suffer from extremely high stress, meaning that we annually withdraw more than 80 percent of each river’s renewable water supply, and at least a third of the US exhibits medium to high water stress or greater.

In the United States, we are so used to turning on the taps and getting clean water that we forget this is not the way it is in many parts of the world, or that in a state like California we need about 80 percent of the water we apply to grow the food we eat. We urbanites forget about the huge needs of water for agriculture and the problems that drought can cause for farmers and ranchers, even in a rich country like the United States.

uWe need your help (confidentially) to identify all current candidates for appointment to the National Organic Standards Board. Congress set up specific stakeholder representation on the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) to assure that corporations and their lobbyists do not dominate organic governance. However, the seats the law designates for independent farmers, scientists, retailers, etc. have frequently been given instead to corporate executives and consultants. (This abuse has occurred during both the Bush and Obama administrations.)
