- ▶  HUNDREDS OF DEAD PIGS PULLED FROM CHINESE WATERWAYS -- EVERY MONTH  China has a dubious record with food safety, with rat meat passed off as lamb and pork passed off as beef, among other things. In an attempt to improve food safety, the country has apparently tightened rules so that dead pigs can no longer sold for human consumption or for animal feed, such as fish food. Consequently, it seems as though farmers are dumping carcasses into the rivers at night. Prior to the stricter controls, which began in 2005, it was rare to find pigs in the waterways...http://inhabitat.com/hundreds-of-dead-pigs-pulled-from-chinese-waterways-every-month/

Monsanto is the agricultural-biotechnology monster who brought us Agent Orange and Round-Up. They also brought us “Round-Up Ready” corn, soybean, cotton, and canola seeds. These seeds, which are sold to industrial farmers, have been genetically engineered to withstand overhead spraying of glyphosate, the herbicide found in Round-Up. Monsanto’s latest horror, Round-Up Ready alfalfa, which spells the end of organic dairy products, was approved by the Obama administration in January, 2011. http://www.scoop.it/t/agriculture-gmos-pesticides/p/2174451098/sneak-attack-bringing-gmo-seeds-to-your-home-veggie-garden-without-labeling

25 March, 2013 - Friends of The Earth

 ▶  NEONICOTINOID TOXIC PESTICIDES IN YOUR GARDEN  : WORST BEE DIE-OFF IN 40 YEARS http://sco.lt/9E5WIT Neonics are the fastest-growing class of synthetic pesticides in history, and the neonicotinoid imidacloprid (Bayer Crop Science's top-selling product), is currently the most widely used insecticide in the world. Neonics are used as seed treatments on more than 140 crop varieties, as well as on termites, cat and dog flea treatments, lawns, landscapes and gardens. Neonics are persistent and last for years in the soil. They permeate the entire plant and are expressed in pollen, nectar and guttation droplets (dew). And, they can’t be washed off food, meaning that we are all eating them.

 

 ▶  NEONICS AREN'T JUST IN USE IN COMMERCIAL AGRICULTURE.  Many of the plants and seeds we buy in nurseries across the U.S. have been pre-treated with the pesticides and at much higher doses than is used on farms – so when we plant our gardens we may unwittingly be harming bees! http://sco.lt/9E5WIT

A research team at the University of Guelph has developed a new line of transgenic Enviropigs. The new line of pigs is called the Cassie line, and it is known for passing genes on more reliably.

Though no studies indicate a food safety risk from genetically modified Enviropig pork, meat from the Enviropig is not yet available for human consumption. Forsberg said using Enviropigs could improve food production and the environment.... http://www.seeddaily.com/reports/Scientists_improve_transgenic_Enviropigs_999.html

BGI is not only the world's largest centre for cloning pigs - it's also the world's largest centre for gene sequencing. In neighbouring buildings, there are rows of gene sequencers - machines the size of fridges operating 24 hours a day crunching through the codes for life.

To illustrate the scale of this operation, Europe's largest gene sequencing centre is the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute near Cambridge. It has 30 machines. BGI has 156 and has even bought an American company that makes them. BGI's chief executive, Wang Jun, tells me how they need the technology to develop ever FASTER, CHEAPER ways of reading genes.

Los Angeles, May 03, 2014
- ▶ USA SCIENTISTS RACE TO BIO-ENGINEER CHICKENS AND FARM ANIMALS UNDER THE GUISE OF CLIMATE CHANGE & 'FEED THE WORLD" SPIN.

                 "The idea is to create animals that are more efficient,"

The researchers are in the vanguard of food scientists, backed by millions of dollars from the U.S. federal government, racing to develop new breeds of farm animals that can "stand up to the hazards of global warming" (and keep the billion dollar corporate factory farm industry in control of our food)

   Some climate-change activists dismiss the work, which is just getting underway, as a distraction and a concession to industrial-style agriculture, which they blame for compounding the world's environmental problems. Those leading the experiments, however, say new, "heat-resistant breeds of farm animals" will be essential to feeding the world as climate change takes hold.

▶ HOW COMPANIES FRAME ISSUES OF FOOD AND GLOBAL HUNGER FOR THEIR OWN SELF-INTEREST AND BOTTOMLINE PROFITS

There is a new, but deceptive, foreign drive to end hunger in Africa through large-scale agribusiness. Yet helping poor households in rural Africa feed themselves in an affordable manner means introducing low-cost, sustainable enhancements to farming.

History is riddled with examples of the poor dying of hunger when food was plentiful. Classic amongst these is the famine which wracked the West African Sahel during the early 1970s. While people were dying of hunger in Senegal, Mali and Niger, peanuts — a key sauce ingredient and source of protein across the region — were being exported to Europe....

...The rise of philanthrocapitalism in the US, where former and current business leaders, through the strength of their foundations, have increasingly come to influence the shape and direction of US international development programmes. Central to the philanthrocapitalist worldview is a belief that private enterprise is the fundamental agent of progressive change and that business acumen trumps other forms of expertise... http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/85291

The only known GMO with inbred human traits in cultivation today, a GM rice product made by biotechnology company Ventria Bioscience is currently being grown on 3,200 acres in Junction City, Kansas — and possibly elsewhere — and most people have no idea about it.
Since about 2006, Ventria has been quietly cultivating rice that has been genetically modified (GM) with genes from the human liver for the purpose of taking the artificial proteins produced by this “Frankenrice” and using them in pharmaceuticals.

Three decades ago, humanity had a problem; science had a fascination; and industry had an opportunity. Our problem was injustice. The ranks of the hungry were expanding while the ranks of farmers were thinning. Meanwhile, science was fascinated by biotechnology – the idea that we could genetically engineer crops and livestock (and people) with traits that could overcome all our problems. Agribusiness saw an opportunity to extract the enormous surplus value that was laced throughout the food chain. The hugely decentralized food system held pockets of profit just crying out to be centralized.  All the biotechnology industry had to do is chase away the competition and coerce governments into surrendering control. ....http://www.etcgroup.org/content/who-owns-nature

   When policymakers in the developed world talk about feeding billions of extra mouths in the decades to come, it's multinational agribusinesses—which operate industrial-size farms—that usually get most of the attention.

   But in the long run, it's small-scale farmers in the developing world, using low-tech but sustainable agricultural techniques, who may be best poised to lead the way in adapting to a warmer world and ensuring the security of the global food supply. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/05/140502-climate-change-agriculture-family-farm-science/

pdjmoo's insight:

THE ETHICS AND MORALITY OF PATENTING LIFE

There are no serious regulations, oversight or ethical requirements  for altering our food and food animals with genes for one reason...  Huge Profits .. To allow corporations to control our  factory farms and monculture crops and continue expanding, destroying health of environment and ecosystems and rivers.  Rather than stop what they're doing, this biotech gene-altering cartel will have changed nature and life within it to suit their ongoing juggernaut to control the world food supply - with or without authentic independently funded,peer-reviewed research as to both short and long-term affects on the animals, ecosystems and human health.  The growth-hormones used in our meat and poultry and pesticides/chemicals for the agricultural crops will eventually show up in the human condition, but it will be too late.  Obesity, Cancer and Diabetes is already a global epidemic wherever these GMO foods penetrate markets.  Most processed foods contain genetically engineered ingredients.

2,4-D SOY:  WAGING WAR ON PEASANTS  Global attempts by Dow AgroSciences to gain approval for new genetically-modified soybean varieties resistant to the herbicide 2,4-D have become particularly aggressive in recent months. Simultaneous applications have been filed in several of the countries where genetically engineered crops (GE or transgenic crops or GMOs) were introduced in the 1990s.
   The push for approval of new transgenics is part of a broader strategy by agribusiness to make the world’s farms increasingly dependent on its toxic herbicides, thus increasing the profits it derives from selling these chemicals. The current situation is a rerun of the 1990s’ introduction of Roundup Ready (glyphosate-resistant) crops, only this time the herbicides in question are much more toxic. These weed-killers have been around for a longer time and the case for their hazardousness to human health and the environment has been well documented. http://www.grain.org/article/entries/4945-2-4-d-soy-waging-war-on-peasants

                         A CRIMINAL ATTACK ON OUR PLANET

                          Guardian Environment, June 23, 2014

-▶ TOXIC INSECTICIDES PUT WORLD FOOD SUPPLIES AT RISK, SAY SCIENTISTS. Regulations on pesticides have failed to prevent poisoning of almost all habitats, international team of scientists concludes. The world’s most widely used insecticides have contaminated the environment across the planet so pervasively that global food production is at risk, according to a comprehensive scientific assessment of the chemicals’ impacts.
The researchers compare their impact with that reported in Silent Spring, the landmark 1962 book by Rachel Carson that revealed the decimation of birds and insects by the blanket use of DDT and other pesticides and led to the modern environmental movement.
Billions of dollars’ worth of the potent and long-lasting neurotoxins are sold every year but regulations have failed to prevent the poisoning of almost all habitats, the international team of scientists concluded in the most detailed study yet. As a result, they say, creatures essential to global food production – from bees to earthworms – are likely to be suffering grave harm and the chemicals must be phased out... http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/jun/24/insecticides-world-food-supplies-risk

I just finished reading a book I highly recommend: The War on Bugs by Will Allen. Allen grew up on a farm, then studied war chemicals in the Marines, and was surprised when he returned to the farm to find out that farm chemicals were "modified versions of the nerve poisons and antipersonnel weapons that [he] learned about when studying chemical warfare in the Marine Corps." Today he’s an organic farmer and he serves on the policy advisory board of Organic Consumers Association (as do I).

 Agricultural chemicals didn’t hit the big time until after World War II, for a number of reasons. But much of the story happens before World War II, before they became widely used on U.S. farms. That history is significant, and Allen uses primary sources to completely document it.

As early as the 1800′s, advertisers began promoting farm chemicals, often industrial wastes and often highly toxic heavy metals like lead and arsenic. ...Even before pesticides hit prime time in the U.S., advertisers were hard at work, trying to figure out how to successfully overcome farmers’ and consumers’ concern about applying poisonous chemicals to food....

pdjmoo's curator insight, February 17, 2013 7:42 PM

The global pesticide industry is a trillion dollar business.  The fact that they poison our ecsytems and lifeform within them, devastate our soils and waterways and enters our human bodies in the form of food and water is not their concern... it is control of the global food supply and quarterl bottom-line profits.   Their first line of defense is to attach any independent, peer review research that contradicts their own industry-supported findings.

By 2030, the researchers expect that number to rise to more than 105,000 tons. The antibiotics serve two purposes. First, they help fatten up livestock at a faster rate. Second, they keep animals healthy despite being raised in overcrowded, filthy conditions where disease spreads easily.

This farmer raises more than 17,000 pigs each year and it's open for public viewing. Owner Gerbert Oosterlaken believes the more you can see, the better.  “We decided that animal health, and human health, would be our priority,” Oosterlaken told me last fall in his barn, surrounded by warm plastic-lined pens where sows snoozed and new piglets squealed. “I don’t need to take antibiotics every day. There’s no reason my pigs should either.” http://modernfarmer.com/2014/06/abstinence-method/

Chicago Sun-Times, October 07, 2014
FACTORY FARMS SOW SUPERBUGS. In its recent report on antimicrobial resistance, the World Health Organization (WHO) said: “A post-antibiotic era in which common infections and minor injuries can kill — far from being an apocalyptic fantasy — is instead a very real possibility for the 21st Century.

”There are several causes leading to the development of antibiotic-resistant superbugs, and a major contributor is the use of low doses of antibiotics in factory farms. More than 70 percent of antibiotics in classes used in human medicine are sold for use in food for animals. These drugs are placed in the food and water of livestock to accelerate growth and help compensate for often horrific, unsanitary living conditions.

Already, two million Americans fall ill every year from antibiotic-resistant infections, and according to the CDC, 23,000 of them die from those infections annually. Public health experts are in agreement: if we don’t act, the problem will only worsen. .. http://www.suntimes.com/news/otherviews/30321003-452/factory-farms-sow-superbugs.html

INSECTICIDE UNACCEPTABLE DANGER TO BEES

Campaigners say the conclusion by the European Food Safety Authority is a 'death knell' for neonicotinoid pesticides...

Bees and other pollinators are critical to one-third of all food, but two major studies in March 2012, and others since, have implicated neonicotinoid pesticides in the decline in the insects, alongside habitat loss and disease. In April, the European commission demanded a re-examination of the risks posed by the chemicals, including Bayer's widely used imidacloprid and two others.,,  http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2013/jan/16/insecticide-unacceptable-danger-bees?CMP=twt_gu

Monsanto versus the people

Monsanto versus the people | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Jan 13, 2013 AL JAZEERA- VIDEO

 

Last week Monsanto announced staggering profits from 2012 to celebratory shareholders while American farmers filed into Washington, DC to challenge the Biotech giant’s right to sue farmers whose fields have become contaminated with Monsanto’s seeds. On January 10 oral arguments began before the U.S. Court of Appeals to decide whether to reverse the cases' dismissal last February.

Exploiting their patent on transgenic corn, soybean and cotton, Monsanto asserts an insidious control of those agricultural industries in the US, effectively squeezing out conventional farmers (those using non-transgenic seeds) and eliminating their capacity to viably participate and compete on the market. (Until the end of 2012, Monsanto was under investigation by the Department of Justice for violating anti-trust laws by practicing anticompetitive activities towards other biotech companies, but that investigation was quietly closed before the year's end.)

December 30, 2012 Global Research

GENETIC ENGINEERING AND THE GMO INDUSTRY CORPORATE HIJACKING OF FOOD AND AGRICULTURE. When rich companies with politically-connected lobbyists and seats on government-appointed bodies bend policies for their own ends, we are in serious trouble. It is then that our democratic institutions become hijacked and our choices, freedoms and rights are destroyed. Corporate interests have too often used their dubious ‘science’, lobbyists, political connections and presence within the heart of governments, in conjunction with their public relations machines, to subvert democratic machinery for their own benefit. Once their power has been established, anyone who questions them or who stands in their way can expect a very bumpy ride... http://www.globalresearch.ca/genetic-engineering-and-the-gmo-industry-corporate-hijacking-of-food-and-agriiculture/5317339

Monarch Butterfly Migration Plunges - The Perfect Storm: GMO Crops, Big Ag & Pesticides

March 13, 2013 - New York Times

MONARCH MIGRATION PLUNGES TO LOWEST LEVEL - THREATENING EXTINCTION

The monarch migration population to their winter home in a Mexican forest sank this year to a 59 percent declines since December 2011 due to extreme weather and a lack of the milkweed that the butterflies feed on, experts say.

 But an equally alarming source of the decline  is the explosive increase in American farmland planted in soybean and corn genetically modified to tolerate herbicides.

The American Midwest’s corn belt is a critical feeding ground for monarchs, which once found a ready source of milkweed growing between the rows of millions of acres of soybean and corn. But the ubiquitous use of herbicide-tolerant crops has enabled farmers to wipe out the milkweed, and with it much of the butterflies’ food supply.

“That habitat is virtually gone. We’ve lost well over 120 million acres, and probably closer to 150 million acres,” Mr. Taylor said.

A rapid expansion of farmland — more than 25 million new acres in the United States since 2007 — has eaten away grasslands and conservation reserves that supplied the monarchs with milkweed" ...  http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/14/science/earth/monarch-migration-plunges-to-lowest-level-in-decades.html?smid=tw-nytnational&seid=auto

SCIENTISTS OFFICIALLY LINK PROCESSED FOODS TO AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE.

The modern diet of processed foods, takeaways and microwave meals could be to blame for a sharp increase in autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, alopecia, asthma and eczema.

A team of scientists from Yale University in the U.S and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, in Germany, say junk food diets could be partly to blame. “This study is the first to indicate that excess refined and processed salt may be one of the environmental factors driving the increased incidence of autoimmune diseases”, they said. http://wakeup-world.com/2014/09/04/scientists-officially-link-processed-foods-to-autoimmune-disease/

The FDA’s position on genetically modified foods is that they are totally safe to eat, and pose no risk to the health of consumers. But health-conscious eaters (as well as the entirety of the European Union) have some reservations, and recent studies show that an aversion to GMO foods is not just idle paranoia. In fact, crops and meats that have been genetically modified may have a harmful effect on various organ systems and consumers’ health in general. Read on to find out more.

pdjmoo's insight:

Everything is interconnected.  Common sense tells us that if it impacts the health of our natural world and its incredible and intricate web of life it is impacting we humans, for we depend upon a healthy natural world for our own health and wellbeing.   Nature is the key.  To restore human health, we must restore Nature's health returning to the natural demands of our environment that it needs to maintain balance and wellbeing.  The old industrial, military complex mindset has led us to this brink of planetary ecocide and we must find a new way of living on this glorious planet for the sake of all living species.

Pesticide use is the leading cause of a nationwide decline of grassland bird species, beating out habitat loss, according to a new study....

Species of owls, sparrows, and meadowlarks are on the long list of American farm-dwelling birds that are disappearing in part because they’re sucking down any of more than 100 types of pesticides. The pesticides also take a toll by killing the insects that the birds would eat.... http://grist.org/news/pesticides-kill-birds/

SCIENTISTS OFFICIALLY LINK PROCESSED FOODS TO AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE.

The modern diet of processed foods, takeaways and microwave meals could be to blame for a sharp increase in autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, alopecia, asthma and eczema.

A team of scientists from Yale University in the U.S and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, in Germany, say junk food diets could be partly to blame. “This study is the first to indicate that excess refined and processed salt may be one of the environmental factors driving the increased incidence of autoimmune diseases”, they said. http://wakeup-world.com/2014/09/04/scientists-officially-link-processed-foods-to-autoimmune-disease/

 April 9, 2012 Christopher Cook, author of “Diet for a Dead Planet,” states that, “It is no longer news that a few powerful, multi-national for-profit-only corporations have literally occupied the vast majority of human sustenance. The situation is perilous…. This corporate occupation of our food isn’t just unfair and wrong; it’s impractical and destructive. It’s ruining farmers, the land and our future food supply.” http://veracityvoice.com/?p=14387

RSPB demands ban on deadly pesticides linked to bee decline

RSPB demands ban on deadly pesticides linked to bee decline | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Feb 21, 2013 The Independent

Controversial nerve-agent pesticides widely linked to decline in bees around the world should be banned, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) says today.

More than 30 separate scientific studies in the last three years have shown adverse effects on insects from neonicotinoids, which are "systemic" insecticides, meaning they enter every part of the target plants – including the pollen and nectar which bees harvest.... http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/nature/rspb-demands-ban-on-deadly-pesticides-linked-to-bee-decline-8503950.html

pdjmoo's insight:

Common Sense and critical thinking do not require a Scientific Ph.D.   If these highly toxic pesticides and chemicals are destroying our biodiverity and beneficial insects, what do you think they might be doing to our human body.  FEB 23, 2013 MONSANTO's "ROUNDUP" IS MORE TOXIC THAN DECLARED PROVES NEW SERALINI STUDY http://www.occupymonsanto360.org/2013/02/23/roundup-is-more-toxic-than-declared-proves-new-seralini-study/ Could they be having the same impact resulting in Alzheimer's and other neurological deficits?  And what about the food we eat that have been sprayed with these poisons?  And what about the honey that these poor bees produce?  Is that contaminated too?  Time for the big global chemical companies to take responsibility for what they're doing to our planet and we humans with little or no disclosure, regulation or oversight, like gigantic ships in the night slipping under the safety radar screen.

WORST BEE DIE-OFF IN 40 YEARS http://sco.lt/9E5WIT

Neonics are the fastest-growing class of synthetic pesticides in history, and the neonicotinoid imidacloprid (Bayer Crop Science's top-selling product), is currently the most widely used insecticide in the world. Neonics are used as seed treatments on more than 140 crop varieties, as well as on termites, cat and dog flea treatments, lawns, landscapes and gardens. Neonics are persistent and last for years in the soil. They permeate the entire plant and are expressed in pollen, nectar and guttation droplets (dew). And, they can’t be washed off food, meaning that we are all eating them.

 

WHAT'S WORSE, NEONICS AREN'T JUST IN USE IN COMMERCIAL AGRICULTURE.  Many of the plants and seeds we buy in nurseries across the U.S. have been pre-treated with the pesticides and at much higher doses than is used on farms – so when we plant our gardens we may unwittingly be harming bees! http://sco.lt/9E5WIT

 Feb 6, 2012 - A Garden For The House

SNEAK ATTACK: BRINGING GMO SEEDS TO YOUR HOME VEGGIE GARDEN -- WITHOUT LABELING  

Monsanto is the agricultural-biotechnology monster who brought us Agent Orange and Round-Up. They also brought us “Round-Up Ready” corn, soybean, cotton, and canola seeds. These seeds, which are sold to industrial farmers, have been genetically engineered to withstand overhead spraying of glyphosate, the herbicide found in Round-Up. Monsanto’s latest horror, Round-Up Ready alfalfa, which spells the end of organic dairy products, was approved by the Obama administration in January, 2011.http://www.scoop.it/t/agriculture-gmos-pesticides/p/2174451098/sneak-attack-bringing-gmo-seeds-to-your-home-veggie-garden-without-labeling

New York Times, January 01, 2015
NOW, GENETICALLY ENGINEERED GRASS : BY 'EDITING' PLANT GENES, COMPANIES AVOID REGULATION. The trend alarms critics of biotech crops, who say genetic modification can have unintended effects, regardless of the process. “They are using a technical loophole so that what are clearly genetically engineered crops and organisms are escaping regulation,” said Michael Hansen, a senior scientist at Consumers Union. He said the grass “can have all sorts of ecological impact and no one is required to look at it.”  (again, what impact on biodiversity, insects, oil, birds, from these toxic seeds) http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/02/business/energy-environment/a-gray-area-in-regulation-of-genetically-modified-crops.html

 -▶ WORST BEE DIE-OFF IN 40 YEARS

Neonics are the fastest-growing class of synthetic pesticides in history, and the neonicotinoid imidacloprid (Bayer Crop Science's top-selling product), is currently the most widely used insecticide in the world. Neonics are used as seed treatments on more than 140 crop varieties, as well as on termites, cat and dog flea treatments, lawns, landscapes and gardens. Neonics are persistent and last for years in the soil. They permeate the entire plant and are expressed in pollen, nectar and guttation droplets (dew). And, they can’t be washed off food, meaning that we are all eating them. http://sco.lt/9E5WIT
