FAST FOOD, SLOW DEATH : "Food Deserts" and the $500 Billion Corporate Food Monopoly

FAST FOOD, SLOW DEATH  : "Food Deserts" and the $500 Billion Corporate Food Monopoly | Hydroponic Grower and Gadget Lover | Scoop.it

December 3, 2012 - Truth Out

It's time for fundamental changes to our nation's toxic food system. The vast majority of what we eat, and where we buy what we eat, is controlled by just a handful of gigantic corporations that are far more interested in turning profits by leading droves of American consumers to the genetically-modified feeding troughs.

The issue is not whether Americans have access to enough food to eat. With a McDonalds and Taco Bell on nearly every street corner in Anytown, USA, there is no shortage of consumable fast food. The issue, however, is whether or not Americans have access to enough quality food like fresh fruits and vegetables to eat – the sort of food that, when digested in high volumes, won’t slowly kill us... http://truth-out.org/news/item/13145-fast-food-slow-death

Major US Food Retailers To Shun Genetically Modified, Factory Farmed, Enslaved Seafood

March 20, 2013 (Reuters) - WHOLE FOODS MARKET INC, TRADER JOE'S AND OTHER FOOD RETAILERS VOW NOT TO SELL GENETICALLY ENGINEERED SEAFOOD

Whole Foods Market Inc, Trader Joe's and other food retailers representing more than 2,000 U.S. stores have vowed not to sell genetically engineered seafood if it is approved in the United States, a new advocacy group said on Wednesday.
The announcement from the Campaign for Genetically Engineered-Free Seafood comes as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration appears close to approving genetically engineered salmon from Massachusetts-based AquaBounty Technologies.
If it gets final approval from the Food and Drug Administration, the salmon would be the first genetically engineered animal to enter this country's human food supply. The United States already is the world's largest market for foods made with genetically altered plant ingredients... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/20/genetically-modified-seafood_n_2912684.html?ir=green&utm_campaign=032013&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Alert-green&utm_content=FullStory

AquaBounty Technologies the patent-seeking company for genetically engineered salmon has tried to cover all the bases for possible objections.  This includes raising these giant salmon in captivity on land to avoid possible ocean contamination.  What is interesting is they are proposing to do this in Panama, away from US prying eyes and where there is no oversight, regulations for how they are bred for import back into the USA.  Further, a fish this size should not be bred in captivity, enslaved in cramped quarters requiring antibiotics and pesticides for the lice that comes from such artificial breeding grounds.  Fish need to swim in the open ocean.  The answer to all this is to stop over-fishing so that our oceans can recover from the devastating losses experienced from massive ocean trawlers decimating the natural biodiversity of our oceans.

Information on Monsanto seed company.

pdjmoo's curator insight, August 1, 2014 1:11 PM

Let's See:  Monsanto owns the patents and have the lock on for the global seed supply for our food; they own the massive amounts of pesticides required for these genetically engineered seeds; they have entered the pharmaceutical business for patents on drugs that make billions after the gmo food system has created a global epidemic of obesity, diabetes and . They now own the most advanced system for weather data in concert with the Pentagon with coming climate change and the water rights wars; they have their representatives in all levels of the USA Government; the billionaire Bill Gates is a trojan horse for them as a "philanthropic organization" both within and without government ; the USA Aid and Trade Departments manipulate (blackmail) governments to take GMO Seeds and Agriculture in their Aid and Trade Programs....it all starts to add up like Monsanto is pretty much in charge of governments and our food and health.
