In Defence of Food:

Screen Shot 2016-01-02 at 11.37.19“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” With that seven-word maxim, US-based journalist Michael Pollan distills a career’s worth of reporting into a prescription for reversing the damage being done to people’s health by today’s industrially driven Western diet. Pollan offers an answer to one of the most urgent questions of our time: What should I eat to be healthy?

Venezuela to Soon Approve Seed Law to Ban GMO Seeds

The Seed Law will regulate the production of hybrid seeds in Venezuela and prevent the research, production, import, and distribution of GMO seeds. Venezuelan campesinos and rural families may soon have a reason to celebrate as the head of the National Assembly assured on Tuesday that the Seed Law to regulate hybrid seeds and ban transgenic seed research in the South American country will be approved before the opposition takes control of the Parliament on Jan. 5, 2016.

Approval of the Seed Law has been pending since last year after being proposed through a national dialogue process in 2013. Public consultations have sought popular input on the law, and campesinos and environmental advocates have long urged for its approval.

WHAT IS MONSANTO’S CARCINOGENIC HERBICIDE DOING IN TAMPONS?

TO: PROCTER & GAMBLE MAKERS OF TAMPAX AND ALWAYS

Stop sourcing cotton sprayed with glyphosate for hygiene products.

Why is this important?

This is scary — Tampax, Always, and other hygiene products very likely contain the key ingredient in cancerous Monsanto Roundup.

A study done in Argentina earlier this year that found that 85% of tampons, cotton, and other hygiene products contain traces of a cancerous chemical linked to one of the world’s most controversial pesticides. The potential health implications from glyphosate are mounting, and it’s been linked to cancer by the World Health Organization. And this is what millions of women are exposing themselves unknowingly to every day.

Monsanto’s Roundup is the world’s most popular weed killer and most of the cotton in countries like the US and Argentina use Roundup-resistant GM cotton. This is also the case with much of the corn and soy we consume. And glyphosate is a key ingredient.

Shocking Report from Medical Insiders

F. William Engdahl (NEO) :

A shocking admission by the editor of the world’s most respected medical journal, The Lancet, has been virtually ignored by the mainstream media. Dr. Richard Horton, Editor-in-chief of the Lancet recently published a statement declaring that a shocking amount of published research is unreliable at best, if not completely false, as in, fraudulent.

Horton declared, “Much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.”

GMO Chicken that Produces Drugs in Eggs Approved

GM Chicken Approved “For Medicinal Purposes”! Are Humans Next?

by Alliance for Natural Health

The floodgates are open for more genetically modified animals—possibly even humans.

Last week saw the approval of another genetically modified animal— this time a chicken genetically altered to produce a drug in its eggs. The drug is designed to replace a faulty enzyme in people with a rare genetic condition that prevents the body from breaking down fatty molecules in cells.

The genetically engineered (GE) chicken is not approved for human consumption, but it is the third so-called “farmaceutical” approved in the US market. Preceding the chicken was a GE goat that produces antithrombin, an anticoagulant, in its milk. Last year the FDA also approved a drug for treating hereditary angioedema that is produced by transgenic (GE) rabbits.

As one geneticist noted, “I can’t wait to see what comes next.” We can. We also expect the development of more GE animals as food following the approval of AquaAdvantage’s salmon, which we dubbed “Frankenfish” over five years ago, the first GE animal approved for human consumption. The FDA has indicated these salmon will not even need to carry a label identifying them as genetically modified—so you may have no idea what you are eating.

The Toxic Agriculture of Monsanto and Big Agribusiness vs. Agroecology Rooted in Local Communities

“We are being far too kind to industrialised agriculture. The private sector has endorsed it, but it has failed to feed the world, it has contributed to major environmental contamination and misuse of natural resources. It’s time we switched more attention, public funds and policy measures to agroecology, to replace the old model as soon as possible.” – Dr David Fig, Biowatch, South Africa

Based on the results on his farm in Gujarat, Indian farmer and campaigner Bhaskar Save demonstrated that by using traditional methods, his yields were superior to any farm using chemicals in terms of quantity, nutritional quality, biological diversity, ecological sustainability, water conservation, energy efficiency and economic profitability.

Bhaskar Save died in October, but in 2006 he published a now quite famous open letter to the Indian Minister of Agriculture and other top officials to bring attention to the mounting suicide rate and debt among farmers. He wanted policy makers to abandon their policies of promoting the use of toxic chemicals that the ‘green revolution’ had encouraged.

According to Save, the green revolution had been a total disaster for India by flinging open the floodgates of toxic agro-chemicals which had ravaged the lands and lives of many millions of farmers (for example, read about the impact in Punjab). He firmly believed that organic farming in harmony with nature could sustainably provide India with abundant, wholesome food.

BACTERIA RESISTANT TO ALL DRUGS SHOWS UP IN DENMARK

My Science Academy:

Bacteria resistant to ALL antibiotics have arrived in Europe, and experts fear it could be the start of a global epidemic of untreatable infections.

Last month, we reported on a gene mutation called MCR-1 that had shown up in bacteria in China. The mutation is resistant to all antibiotics, including colistin, a last-resort drug used to tackle tough bacteria when all other antibiotics have failed.

 

The superbugs were found in 15% of raw meat samples in China, as well as a fifth of the animals tested. Colistin had also failed in 16 patients infected with drug-resistant infections.

Now a patient in Denmark has been diagnosed with an untreatable form of salmonella, scientists from George Washington University (GWU) and the Statens Serum Institute (SSI) and National Food Institute (NFI) in Denmark announced Friday. In addition, they also found untreatable bacteria in 5 samples of chicken imported from China through Germany.
