Argentina: GMs’ New Frontline

Listen in pop-out player

May 8, 2014

The transgenic revolution in agricultural production has turned Argentina into one of the world's largest producers and exporters of genetically modified soybean and corn. But there is unease across the nation’s vast GM belt, especially about health. In the northern province of Chaco, the minster of Public Health wants an independent commission to investigate cases of cancer and the incidence of children born with disabilities.

From Just Label It:

Quaker, a brand that prides itself on its honest and healthy image, is not being fully transparent to parents, families and consumers across the country – marketing their products on trust, but funding anti-labeling efforts at the same time.

Join us in asking Quaker to just label it and support mandatory FDA labeling of GMOs.

Don't Fall for These Food Front Groups

By Martha Rosenberg 5/27/2015

Welcome to the world of food "front groups"--faux grassroots groups, sometimes called Astroturf, created by Big Food to keep health and safety regulations from cutting into sales and profits.

The GMO Debate – Science and Society - New University Course - 4 Credits

Course Objectives

To enable students to understand the scientific background about GMO crops and food, to objectively assess claims made in the media and on the internet, to present cogent reports on the science, government regulation and social attitudes, and to defend their viewpoints with well-referenced, reasoned arguments both verbally and in writing.

Pro-terrorist Cornell University takes money from globalist Bill Gates to push GMOs destroying America

March 31, 2015 - By J.D. Heyes

“We taxpayers deserve to know the details about when our taxpayer-paid employees front for private corporations and their slick PR firms,” Ruskin said.

“This use of surrogates is par for the course with the biotech industry,” wrote Tim Schwab of Food & Water Watch in September. “Sometimes called the soft lobby, corporations routinely engage neutral-appearing scientists and impartial-sounding front groups to help advance their political and economic agendas.”

And while Lesser said the study contained his personal observations rather than those of Cornell, GMO backers nevertheless began to refer to his findings as “the Cornell study” in their efforts to stave off initiatives by states to force food makers to include labeling of GMO ingredients in their products.

The Alliance for Science site, then, is essentially Cornell’s GMO propaganda instrument.

Fast forward six months to the latest alliance effort to quash the FOIA requests; it’s as if Cornell believes that Americans should not be told whether professors at the public universities they help fund are being influenced at all in their support of GMO foods by the corporate and philanthropic interests developing and promoting them.

Is Cornell the Go-To University for Industry Science?

August 28, 2014

http://www.foodandwaterwatch.org/blogs/is-cornell-the-go-to-university-for-industry-science/



Public Research, Private Gain - Corporate Influence Over University Agricultural Research

Starting in the 1980s, however, federal policies including the Bayh-Dole Act of 1982 began encouraging land-grant schools to partner with the private sector on agricultural research. A key goal was to develop agricultural products such as seeds, which
were sold to farmers under an increasingly aggressive patent regime.1

By 2010, private donations provided nearly a quarter of the funding for agricultural research at land-grant universities. !is funding steers land-grant research toward the goals of industry. It also discourages independent research that might be critical of the industrial model of agriculture and diverts public research capacity away from important issues such as rural economies, environmental quality and the public health implications of agriculture.

Private-sector funding not only corrupts the public research mission of land-grant universities, but also distorts the science that is supposed to help farmers improve their practices and livelihoods. Industry funded academic research routinely produces favorable results for industry sponsors. Because policymakers and regulators frequently voice their need for
good science in decision-making, industry-funded academic research influences the rules that govern their business operations.

Former Pro-GMO Scientist Speaks Out on Dangers of Genetically Modified Food

By Dr. Thierry Vrain - Guest Writer for Wake Up World

I retired 12 years ago after a long career as a research scientist for Agriculture Canada. When I was on the payroll, I was the designated scientist of my institute to address public groups and reassure them that genetically engineered crops and foods were safe.

I refute the claims of the biotechnology companies...

We should all take these studies seriously and demand that government agencies replicate them rather than rely on studies paid for by the biotech companies.

There are no long-term feeding studies performed in these countries to demonstrate the claims that engineered corn and soya are safe. All we have are scientific studies out of Europe and Russia, showing that rats fed engineered food die prematurely. These studies show that proteins produced by engineered plants are different than what they should be. Inserting a gene in a genome using this technology can and does result in damaged proteins.

EU Regulators Bow to Pressure from American Trade Lobby on Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals

Beyond Pesticides, May 28, 2015

...she sent a letter to the EC’s Environment Director-General Karl Falkenberg telling him to scrap draft criteria that could have led to a ban on over 30 endocrine (hormone) disrupting chemical (EDCs) in the European Union (EU).

...the Guardian reported that a scientific paper that would have adequately established ways to identify problematic EDCs was suppressed by EU officials at the behest of the chemical industry.

Despite attempts from a number of U.S. Senators, including Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT), fast-track legislation has passed the Senate and is on its way to the U.S. House of Representatives. In an opinion article to the Washington Post, Senator Warren wrote on a clause within TTIP regarding “investor-state dispute settlements,” which would allow multinational corporations to challenge US laws it views as unfavorable by leapfroging the court system, and pleading its case in front of an international panel of arbitrators. “If the company won, the ruling couldn’t be challenged in U.S. courts, and the arbitration panel could require American taxpayers to cough up millions — and even billions — of dollars in damages,” Senator Warren wrote. “If that seems shocking, buckle your seat belt. ISDS could lead to gigantic fines, but it wouldn’t employ independent judges. Instead, highly paid corporate lawyers would go back and forth between representing corporations one day and sitting in judgment the next.”

Special Report: The war on big food

by Beth Kowitt May 21, 2015

And that has brought the entire colossal, $1-trillion-a-year food retail business to a tipping point. Steve Hughes, a former ConAgra executive who co-founded and now runs natural food company Boulder Brands, believes so much change is afoot that we won’t recognize the typical grocery store in five years. “I’ve been doing this for 37 years,” he says, “and this is the most dynamic, disruptive, and transformational time that I’ve seen in my career.”

Fortune spent months getting inside several of the industry’s key corporations to understand how they’re responding to the mounting threat. One thing is clear: Big Food is suddenly looking like an underdog.

Ever wonder how one of the leading producers of warfare and agricultural chemicals was able to become the leader in seed production? Check out this article to learn how Monsanto created its monopoly of food production.

1901: Pharmaceutical company agent John F. Queeny launches Monsanto to produce saccharin, an artificial sweetener then only manufactured in Germany.

1907: The USDA investigates whether replacing saccharin with sugar violates the Pure Food and Drug Act, a consumer protection law. President Theodore Roosevelt, a saccharin consumer, objects to the investigation.

1911: The USDA proclaims foods with saccharin “adulterated,” thus banning it except for use by medical patients who must avoid sugar.

1914: World War I starts, and sugar shortages prompt the government to lift saccharin restrictions.

1915: With caffeine and vanillin added to Monsanto's product line, and Coca-Cola as a chief customer, sales reach $1 million.

1917: Monsanto begins producing aspirin, becoming the top producer in the U.S., a title it held until the 1980s.

Leaky Gut: Is it Becoming an Epidemic?

May 27, 2015 by Carol Grieve

For instance, specific molecules and nutrients are allowed to pass through but toxins and large undigested food particles are blocked. When you have leaky gut, the pores in your small intestine widen and this allows undigested food particles and toxins, that would normally be blocked, to enter your bloodstream. These particles and toxins aren’t recognized and the immune system goes into attack mode because they are not supposed to be in the blood. In essence, the immune system literally recognizes these undigested particles as dangerous. This can lead to allergies and much worse conditions. These particles that shouldn’t be there cause an immune response and build up antibodies to protect–it is just basically doing its job. The problem is the immune system doesn’t just build up antibodies to the food particles; it attacks your healthy cells, too. This is one of the ways food allergies and autoimmune disorders develop.

Keeping in mind that 70% of our immune system is in our gut, doesn’t it seem important to have a healthy one?

Judge upholds Jackson County GMO ban

May 29, 2015

The judge has recognized that genetically engineered crops pose a significant commercial threat to non-biotech growers, which was a key issue in the litigation, Kimbrell said. “This case is a resounding affirmation of the right of farmers to protect themselves from GE contamination.”

Tell the FDA:

NO GMO MOSQUITOES IN THE FLORIDA KEYS! Or anywhere for that matter. The Florida Keys Mosquito Control District has deferred the decision to approve genetically engineered mosquitoes to the FDA.

Please comment to the FDA TODAY - they need to hear from you! Post your comment, to include any and all environmental, public health, economic, or ethical questions you may have with this uncontrolled genetic modification experiment here:

GMO Free USA

Monsanto is already poisoning us with their Roundup-drenched GMOs. And now they want conventional farmers to to spray toxic Roundup on everything else as well. Check out this pre harvest guide to spraying Roundup on your Non-GMO food. How can it be OK to spray a carcinogen on your food 3 days before harvest?

The World Health Organization says that glyphosate causes cancer in animals and is a probable human carcinogen. Got carcinogens in your food? BUY ORGANIC.

Monsanto’s Glyphosate Blankets GMO Crops Near Schools

By Mary Ellen Kustin - May 8, 2015

GMO corn and soybeans have been genetically engineered to withstand being blasted with glyphosate – an herbicide that the World Health Organization recently classified as “probably carcinogenic to humans.” The proximity of many schools to fields blanketed in the chemical puts kids at risk of exposure.

But it gets worse.

Overreliance on glyphosate has spawned the emergence of “superweeds” that resist the herbicide, so now producers of GMO crops are turning to even more harmful chemicals. First up is 2,4-D, a World War II-era defoliant that has been linked to non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Parkinson’s disease and reproductive problems. Young children are especially vulnerable to it.

A new EWG interactive map shows the amounts of glyphosate sprayed in each U.S. county...
