Brazilian research company cancels release of GM bean

on 28 April 2015.

In an unprecedented, bold, and responsible decision, the current board of Embrapa cancelled the evaluation experiments on the transgenic beans and prevented their cultivation and consumption. This transgenic variety was developed by Embrapa and was announced with much hype three years ago.

WV-Based OVEC and SkyTruth to Receive Jean and Leslie Douglas Pearl Award

April 14, 2015

Tyrone B. Hayes, Ph.D.

Professor of Integrative Biology, Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, Endocrinology, Molecular Toxicology, and Energy and Resources Group

"Hayes’ research focuses on developmental endocrinology with an emphasis on evolution and environmental regulation of growth and development. For the past 10 years, the role of endocrine disrupting contaminants, particularly pesticides, has been a major focus. Hayes is interested in the impact of chemical contaminants on environmental health and public health, with a specific interest in the role of pesticides in global amphibian declines and environmental justice concerns associated with targeted exposure of racial and ethnic minorities to endocrine disruptors and the role that exposure plays in health care disparities."

Farmers back decision to ban Roundup spray

By Sarah Lagan Published May 12, 2015
Members of the farming community have supported Government’s decision to ban the importation of the weed spray Roundup amid fears that it can cause cancer in humans.

“We as farmers here in Bermuda do not grow any genetically modified crops or any round-up ready crops so it is not a concern for us from that standpoint.”

Victory: German Retail Giant Removes Glyphosate from 350 Stores

...a German retail giant will no longer carry glyphosate-containing products as of September 30, 2015

However, by the end of 2013, toom Baumarkt had begun to remove this product and approximately 60 percent of glyphosate-containing products were removed from their shelves.

Instead, Toom Baumarkt offers its customers alternative, environmentally acceptable products. As the EU determines whether or not to ban glyphosate, the store will likely see sales soar, as people around the world are becoming educated about just how problematic glyphosate can be to humans, animals and the ecosystem.

Something Horrible Was Done To Our Wheat In The 60’s That We’re Just Realizing Now

May 19, 2015

William Davis, MD, says it’s when big agriculture stepped in decades ago to develop a higher-yielding crop. Today’s “wheat,” he says, isn’t even wheat, thanks to some of the most intense crossbreeding efforts ever seen. “The wheat products sold to you today are nothing like the wheat products of our grandmother’s age, very different from the wheat of the early 20th Century, and completely transformed from the wheat of the Bible and earlier,” he says.

March Against Monsanto to Launch International Protests May 23rd

Yvonne Holterman | May 12, 2015

From the official March Against Monsanto release: “On May 23, 2015, hundreds of thousands of concerned individuals will gather across 38 countries and 428 cities to join in peaceful protest against the Monsanto Company as a part of the March Against Monsanto grassroots campaign, which seeks to bring awareness over the dangers surrounding Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds and cancer-linked herbicide Roundup. The campaign comes as the demand for GMO labeling and non-GMO food alternatives continues its exponential climb, with states like Vermont enacting “mandatory GM labeling legislation that will require food corporations to let consumers know if their products contain GM ingredients.” - See more at: http://www.enlightened-consciousness.com...h.qtQdJvRF.dpuf

So would Schumer vote for this bill with this change, knowing full well that it would take away a state's right to gmo labeling? Sounds to me like his priorities are in the wrong place.

Please contact Schumer and Gillibrand and tell them that when it comes to you and your family's health, there is no "compromise." Tell them to vote "no" to any TPP bill that includes legislation prohibiting state's from making their own rules about gmo labeling. (In addition to all the other good reasons why this bill should be voted down.)

According to Democratic leadership aides, Senators Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic leader, and Chuck Schumer of New York, the No. 3 Democrat, have proposed a compromise to Republican leaders: First, hold a separate vote on legislation aimed at discouraging so-called currency manipulation by American trading partners, which could be vetoed by the president. Then, wrap the fast-track authority he is seeking with a more encompassing bill, including assistance for displaced workers, extension of an African trade accord and other trade enforcement measures.

Brainwashing money.

Bill Gates Foundation Giving Millions to Top University In Order to Add a “Stronger Voice” to GMO “Debate”

By Nick Meyer On August 26, 2014

Cornell University, a private New York state-based Ivy League college, is expected to lead a new international effort that “will seek to add a stronger voice for science,” according to an article in the school’s Cornell Chronicle.

The program, made possible through the Gates Foundation’s $5.6 million grant, reportedly seeks to help inform decision-makers an consumers through an online information hub as well as training programs, with the goal of educating on “how (agricultural technology, presumably GMOs) works,” as well as the “potential impacts” of agricultural technology.

Sarah Evanega, senior associate director of International Programs in Cornell’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS), who will lead the project according to the report, said that “pro-biotech activists share a lot of the same anti-pesticide, low-input, sustainable-agriculture vision as the organic movement.”

Will Objectivity Be Included in New Program? Considering Gates’ clear bias in favor of GMOs, can we reasonably expect to see any sort of objectivity in Cornell’s upcoming program?

Regardless of whether or not Cornell’s new program will be even remotely objective considering the funding behind it, one thing’s for sure: the consumer is becoming smart enough to make up their own mind on GMOs, and that development is likely to be a problem for the Biotech companies’ bottom lines going forward.

The flip side to Bill Gates’ charity billions

April 2012

Microsoft’s former CEO has made record-breaking donations to global health programmes – but an investigation by Andrew Bowman reveals some unpleasant side-effects.

‘Depending on what side of bed Gates gets out of in the morning,’ he remarks, ‘it can shift the terrain of global health.’

In 2008 the WHO’s head of malaria research, Aarata Kochi, accused a Gates Foundation ‘cartel’ of suppressing diversity of scientific opinion, claiming the organization was ‘accountable to no-one other than itself’.

‘The Foundation wants the private sector to do more on global health, and sets up partnerships with the private sector involved in governance. As these institutions are clearly also trying to influence policymaking, there are huge conflicts of interests… the companies should not play a role in setting the rules of the game.’

The Foundation itself has employed numerous former Big Pharma figures, leading to accusations of industry bias.

Are Chemical Companies Telling the Truth About How Long to Stay Off of Lawns After Spraying?

By Nick Meyer On July 8, 2014

As the Post article added, a 2001 study also found that a week after lawn treatment, the notoriously harmful pesticide 2, 4-D was found on all indoor air surfaces after wafting in through various openings in homes. Exposure of the chemical was found to be 10 times higher than the previous week to children, according to the study.

Chemical reactions: glyphosate and the politics of chemical safety

TPP trade deal alert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chuck Schumer is going to vote Yes.

Schumer: 202-224-6542

Kirsten Gillibrand is going to vote no but, it's still a good idea to call and make sure she knows what you want her to do.

Gillibrand: 212-688-6262
