U.S. of Allergies: The Cost of Food Allergies in America

May 12, 2015/By Robyn O'Brien/

Food allergies are not a niche, it is a growing epidemic that is challenging how we think about our food and how it is made. Genetic factors don’t change this quickly, environmental factors do. Are we allergic to food or to what’s been done to it?

While the chemical companies selling these new ingredients say there is no evidence of harm, consumers are saying: there is no evidence since these ingredients were never labeled in the United States. There are also no long term studies to show us that they are safe."

March Against Monsanto 2015 Official Press Release

By Nick Meyer On May 18, 2015

For immediate release:

WORLDWIDE – 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. This movement seeks to raise awareness to the dangers surrounding Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds and cancer-linked herbicide Roundup.

http://www.march-against-monsanto.com/march-against-monsanto-2015-official-press-release/

The World According To Monsanto

Full Length Video - 1 hour, 49 minutes

The story starts in the White House, where Monsanto often got its way by exerting disproportionate influence over policymakers via the “revolving door”. One example is Michael Taylor, who worked for Monsanto as an attorney before being appointed as deputy commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1991. While at the FDA, the authority that deals with all US food approvals, Taylor made crucial decisions that led to the approval of GE foods and crops. Then he returned to Monsanto, becoming the company’s vice president for public policy.

Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Monsanto. Media Silent

May 18

by PAUL FASSA

Efforts to publicize this lawsuit against Monsanto for false advertising with Roundup, filed in Los Angeles County Court on April 20, 2015, have been rejected by the LA Times, Huffington Post, CNN, and Reuters, one of the world’s largest news agencies. The plaintiff’s attorney, T. Matthew Phillips, has been posting the suit in Wikipedia’s Monsanto litigation section, but it keeps getting removed.

It's time for the "spring flush"... of pesticides

May 13, 2015 by Emily Marquez

What, you may ask, is the "spring flush?" In late spring and early summer, large concentrations of herbicides are flushed from croplands. These chemicals — like the herbicide atrazine — then get transported far and wide through surface water systems.

Herbicides are water-soluble and thus have the potential to leach into groundwater supplies as well as streams, lakes and other surface waters. Atrazine is a frequently found contaminant in drinking water supplies throughout the Corn Belt, and every year the spring flush raises concerns over the potential of atrazine spikes in drinking water supplies.

"Cornell University has meanwhile received a $5.6 million grant by the Gates Foundation to “depolarize” negative GMO publicity"

Monsanto’s Worst Fear May Be Coming True

May 18, 2015 by Jonathan Latham, PhD, Independent Science News

The media lynching of Chipotle has an explanation that is important to the future of GMOs.

Hain Celestial told The Food Navigator that: “We sell organic products…gluten-free products and…natural products. [But] where the big, big demand is, is GMO-free.”

Why the pressure to remove GMOs will grow

...the spraying of 2,4-D and Dicamba on the newer herbicide-resistant crops will not eliminate the need for Roundup, whose use will not decline...2,4-D and Dicamba-resistant GMOs are thus a PR disaster waiting to happen.

GMO roll-outs in other countries have relied on three things: the deep pockets of agribusinesses based in the United States, their political connections, and the notion that GMOs represent “progress”. If those three disappear in the United States, the power to force open foreign markets will disappear too. The GMO era might suddenly be over.

Big Box Goes Organic as Target Pulls Canned Soups, Easy Mac

May 19, 2015 By Josh Scherer

Toucan Sam, Cap'n Crunch, Tony the Tiger, and even the Wheaties athlete du jour are all printed on cereal boxes to give the illusion of eye contact, which, according to Cornell food psychology professor Brian Wansink, increases brand loyalty by 16 percent.

That's just one of the tried-and-true product placement gimmicks that supermarkets use to manipulate customer purchases. It may become a thing of the past, however, as big-box retailers like Walmart are making big money on organic and other "healthy" food items. Which is partly why Target, which has been beefing up its grocery game in recent years, is throwing a wrench into the corporate status quo.

"Hector is one of my personal heroes. Read about how his university is treating him..."

“I saw the removal of my field laboratory as an infringement of my academic freedom,” he says. “The college prevented me from exploring new methods of agriculture that challenged the college’s central vision about the future of agriculture in Hawai‘i.”

Banned from Three Islands

...Keyser stated in an email that if Valenzuela held one more community meeting on the island he could no longer use the university’s research station there to conduct workshops.

Monsanto Money and Influence

...taking money from corporations like Monsanto can influence “in troubling ways” the intellectual inquiry that should be at the heart of education and research.

Valenzuela “Shocked, Insulted and Humiliated” by Attacks

Valenzuela said many of the personal attacks against him came from university administrators “under the approving eye of the dean, as they continued to persist over the years.”

“Silicon Valley of the Plant World”

...the university started to market seeds for a genetically modified type of papaya that it had co-developed with Cornell University.

New Pesticides, Old Concerns

...they are applying chlorpyrifos at a rate that’s five times the national average. Chlorpyrifos, the most widely used bug killer in the world, is a neurotoxin found to damage the brains of developing children.

...they are applying the weed killer atrazine at a rate that’s 14 times the national average.

Silencing Valenzuela’s Allies

A few other faculty members at the University of Hawai‘i have privately revealed in emails to Valenzuela their concerns about biotechnology and the way he has been treated. But none of the other faculty members were willing to divulge their names, for fear of retaliation.

What a disgrace.

We send our children to college to learn a skill so they can support themselves through their lifetime and be good citizens. They end up being used as pawns to promote agendas for colleges, industry and government.

If you are one of these folks who are afraid to speak out, you can show your support, anonymously, by financially supporting organizations like Moms Across America, Organic Consumers Association, Institute of Responsible Technology, among many others. Personal information of financial donors is kept confidential.

If there are any of you that would like to speak out, now would be a good time. You are our nation's heroes. Our children need you to speak now.

The above article referred to Dr. Tyrone Hayes. Here is his story about atrazine and what it does to frogs.

SAVE MONARCHS FROM DOW'S CHEMICAL ASSAULT!

Industrial agricultural giant Dow Chemical just unveiled its newest toxic herbicide, Enlist Duo, which would destroy milkweed plants that monarch butterflies depend on to survive. And monarch populations are crashing from nearly 1 billion butterflies 20 years ago to just 57 million last winter. Tell Dow's CEO to reverse course and shelve the company's plan for selling this potent chemical cocktail — before it can wreak more destruction on monarchs.

Glyphosate on Your Plate

1/1/2015

It is no surprise that 'generally recognized as safe' (GRAS) has no meaning other than to provide a rubber stamp of government approval for whatever the chemical corporations want.

To this end, the USDA has allowed glyphosate applications on the following crops up to and including harvest time...

The USDA allows growers to spray these crops between rows throughout the growing season up until harvest...

Hillary Clinton: Monsanto’s Next Poster Puppet

by Christina Sarich - Posted on May 24, 2015

– but she doesn’t represent me. That’s because she supports GMOs.

Hillary Rodham Clinton doesn’t represent the American people, either. Recently, she stated her desire to get industry representatives around a table to have an “intensive discussion” about “how the federal government could help biotechs with insurance against [financial] risk.”

That’s right – when the news comes out, and it will (WHO recently declared chemicals like glyphosate ‘probably carcinogenic’) – she wants to make sure the pubic has no recourse against these eco-terrorism companies.

This excellent french documentary documents the pressure from Industry to avoid regulating endocrine disruptor chemicals. Europe under extreme pressure does regulate the RoundUp Ready technology.

Glyphosate is an endocrine disruptor in human cells.
Gasnier et al.
Toxicology 2009: 262: 184
Glyphosate is an endocrine disruptor at 500 parts per billion.

"By artificially misrepresenting or increasing this doubt, industry is turning science against itself."
