DDT Linked to Fourfold Increase in Breast Cancer Risk

By Lindsey Konkel, National Geographic PUBLISHED June 16, 2015

Some environmental scientists have long suspected, based on lab studies, that prenatal exposure to DDT—which can mimic estrogen and might turn key genes on and off—could fundamentally alter the way a woman's breast tissue grows, making her more susceptible to breast cancer decades later.

The Monsanto Protection Act is Back, and Worse Than Ever

June 15th, 2015

http://www.centerforfoodsafety.org/press...orse-than-ever#

Institute for Responsible Technology

IRT joins with the Center for Food Safety (CFS) in expressing our strong opposition to Representative Pompeo’s newly revised genetically engineered (GE) food labeling preemption bill (H.R. 1599), which now has been greatly expanded to not only prohibit all labeling of GE foods, but also to make it unlawful for states or local governments to restrict GE crops in any way. These new provisions would not only prohibit any future state and local laws, but also undemocratically nullify GE crop regulations that have existed in numerous counties across the country for over a decade. The bill would also further weaken already weak federal regulation of GE crops, while at the same time forbidding local communities from opting to protect their citizens, their farmers, and their environments.

Neonicotinoid pesticides are used as seed treatments on an estimated 95% of the U.S. corn crop. This is an additional layer of toxins in addition to the genetically engineered internal insecticide (Bt) AND the herbicide tolerant traits which allow the crops to be sprayed with glyphosate (Roundup).

Ontario first in North America to curb bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides

Farmers and the province have agreed to rules for reduction that begins July 1, while the manufacturer maintains the controversial insecticide is safe.

TOP NEWS OF THE WEEK - Organic Bytes #473

DARK Days Ahead?

Today, at 10 a.m., Reps. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) and their band of pro-GMO, anti-consumer, stomp-all-over-states’-rights outlaws will stand before the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health and ask the Committee to support H.R. 1599.

But that’s only half the story. Since Pompeo introduced his bill-to-kill GMO labeling laws earlier this year, he’s been tinkering with the language. Now, the latest version of the DARK Act is even darker than the original.

In fact, if you thought the Monsanto Protection Act was bad (and it was), the new-and-improved DARK Act is the Mother of all Monsanto Protection Acts.

Can Biotech Industry Censor French Scientist SÉRALINI Again?

Posted on June 19, 2015

All of these industrial studies by Monsanto and DuPont and the like should be retracted. This is grave, and crazy!

The rats in the control groups were never fed organics, it was never done.

WHO unit finds 2,4-D herbicide 'possibly' causes cancer in humans

Reuters By Carey Gillam June 22, 2015

The classification of the weed killer, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid, known as 2,4-D, was made by the WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

In March, IARC said it had found another popular herbicide -glyphosate - was "probably carcinogenic to humans." Glyphosate is the key ingredient in Monsanto Co's Roundup herbicide and other products.

Now that Anthony Samsel has exposed Monsanto's testing records that were held as "secret" by the FDA about the contaminated lab chow used on the control group, isn't it time for the doubters (farmers, academics, medical professionals and politicians) to pay attention to what this is doing to our children?

GM Foods More Dangerous for Children than Adults

October 07, 2010 - Mercola

Children are three to four times more prone to allergies than adults and “are at highest risk of death from food allergy.”

Exposure to hormones or endocrine disruptors may also severely affect normal development.

Herbicide-resistant insects are destroying GMO crops like never before

Christina Sarich - 22 Jun 2015

In short, Bt corn didn't eradicate the pest it was meant to destroy; it only made it stronger, thereby causing even more pesticide use. Sounds like a perfect biotech creation made in cahoots with companies that sell chemicals for a living - and yet we trust them to make our food?

USDA Disregards NOSB’s Recommended Prohibition on Nanomaterials in Organics

by Linley Dixon, PhD

...the USDA’s National Organic Program issued a new guidance in March that allows companies to petition for use of human-engineered nanomaterials in organic production and processing. The new guidance dismisses the recommendation of the NOP’s advisory body, the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB).

Leading Cancer Experts: 2,4-D Weed-Killer Is ‘Possibly Carcinogenic to Humans’

Shannon Van Hoesen, Environmental Working Group | June 23, 2015

“We have known for decades that 2,4-D is harmful to the environment and human health, especially for the farmers and farm workers applying these chemicals to crops,” said Mary Ellen Kustin, senior policy analyst for the Environmental Working Group. “Now that farmers are planting 2,4-D-tolerant GMO crops, this herbicide is slated to explode in use much the way glyphosate did with the first generation of GMO crops. And we know from experience—and basic biology—that weeds will soon grow resistant to these herbicides, making GMO crop growers only more dependent on the next chemical fix.”
