In a publicity blitz against GMO labeling, Big Food is using a six-figure campaign to run ads in prime time on network and cable TV in and around the nation’s capital. This is part of a last ditch effort for the biotech industry and Big Food to keep states from writing their own mandatory GMO-labeling laws. Coalition for Safe Affordable Food, funder of the ad campaign blitz in the capitol, is “working urgently with Congress to pass a national uniform labeling standard and stand up against on-package labeling of GMOs,” Companies want that ‘national standard’ to forbid mandatory on-package GMO labels.
. In a just-released June 25, 2015 internal email, US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 water expert Miguel Del Toral described the situation in Flint as “bordering on criminal neglect” after he discovered high levels of lead in tap water and efforts of state officials to conceal it from the public. Del Toral sent the message to his superior, EPA Section Chief of Ground Water and Drinking Water Rita Bair, the day after submitting a detailed interim report warning of high lead in Flint water.
Canadian farmers are justifiably requesting that Lawrence MacAulay, the Canadian Agri-Minister, immediately act to halt the sale of genetically modified (GM) alfalfa seed by Forage Genetics International, a Monsanto licensee. Many farmers have been concerned that their alfalfa will be contaminated by GM alfalfa; asked the Minister to put border controls in place to stop the continued cross-pollination of non-GM alfalfa with seed that has already been compromised.
One-hundred organizations representing more than 5 million Nigerians, including farmers, faith-based organisations, civil society groups, students and local community groups, have submitted a joint objection to the country’s National Biosafety Management Agency (NABMA) expressing serious concerns about human health and environmental risks of genetically altered crops.
U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has opened the door for farmers to plant MON87419, a new strain of genetically modified (GM) corn created by Monsanto to tolerate the weed killers dicamba and glufosinate without government oversight. The move will likely increase spraying of the herbicides. Like earlier strains of GMO corn, MON87419 is designed to withstand being coated in toxic chemicals that wipe out weeds and other plant life on farm fields could “lead to an increase in dicamba use, which will spur the evolution of dicamba-resistant weeds and abandonment of conservation tillage practices.

UN FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization):advantage of organic agriculture; work with natural processes, increase cost-effectiveness.. Organic farmers intensify production in a sustainable way; could produce enough food forcurrent world population with reduced environmental impact than conventional agriculture.without polluted environment, less diverse diets, degraded soils and nutrient deficient food, ill health; an unsustainable model of agriculture that creates food insecurity, environmental degradation, helps create jobs in rural areas..Crop yields increased.
Shortly after the release of a report showing 14 beers testing positive for glyphosate in Germany, a concerned supporter of Moms Across America said he had test results from Microbe Inotech Lab of St.Louis showing 10 different wines, from large and small vineyards, contained the chemical glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller, including wine made with organic grapes.The contamination of conventional wine was 28 times higher than organic wine. The wines tested came from Napa Valley, Sonoma and Mendocino counties in California.
Ted Cruz: we shouldn’t let anti-science zealotry shutdown the ability to produce low-cost quality food;” the anti-GMO movement is driven by “hysteria. Senator Bernie Sanders: GMO labeling exists in 64 other countries. There is no reason it can’t exist here.” Sanders favors small and mid-sized family farms, regional food systems, stopping domination of the food supply by a few large corporations
November of last year, California state officials placed an indefinite hold on the commercial crab season, in order to protect public health. The reason given by the state was dangerously high levels of algal toxins in the bodies of the crabs According to New York radio station 95.1 FM (SuperStation 95), insiders from the California Fish and Game Commission have revealed that the real reason for the ban was dangerously high levels of radioactivity resulting from the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster. State officials were concerned they could cause immediate sickness in anyone who ate them.“If people started connecting the dots proving radiation in seafood was making them sick, it would destroy California’s seafood industry in days.”
Many seals are underweight and starving, suffering from a shortage of food in the Pacific Ocean… “When they get extremely thin they’re open to all sorts of illnesses and infections.
Contaminants get into the water through human drug waste in sewage, medicines flushed down toilets, agricultural runoff and the wide use of endocrine disruptors like pesticides, flame retardants and plastic-related compounds like phthalates and BPA. (BPA has ironically been used in bottled water that people drink to avoid tap water risks!) 60 percent of Americans now take prescription drugs, one fourth of US women are now on antidepressants.
An estimated $21 billion has been spent on cleanup efforts since 2011, including funding for a team of remote activated robots capable of going to high-dose radiation areas of the plant where humans cannot enter and survive. Five of these robots have been lost to the dangers in Fukushima Daiichi’s severely damaged nuclear reactors and waste treatment buildings.
US public water infrastructure is dangerous to human health. Suspected cancer-causing chemical PFOA being phased out in the U.S.;, turning up in the water in factory towns across the country — most recently in upstate New York and Vermont — where it is blamed by residents for cancers and other maladies.
Committee on Environment, Food Safety & Public Health (ENVI) has formally objected to the re-authorization by the European Commission of the herbicide, called the herbicide’s re-authorization “irresponsible and unacceptable.”MEP Anja Hazekamp criticized the European Commission for even considering giving Round Up the green light in Europe.
Teri McCall, the widow of Jack McCall, is suing Monsanto for wrongful death. She claims that the company is responsible for exposing her husband to their flagship weed killer for years, all the while knowing that it caused cancer. This is similar to over legal moves against Monsanto over glyphosate damage.
The study published in the Journal of Chromatography by researchers from Poland’s National Veterinary Institute utilized a new test that allowed them to analyze exactly which of the 200 pesticides licensed for use in the EU were contributing to honeybee deaths.57 specific pesticides have been named for poisoning bees. “Bee health is a matter of public concern. Bees are considered critically important for the environment and agriculture by pollinating more than 80 percent of crops and wild plants in Europe
Along the Texas coast, game wardens will now carry radiation detectors. The Port of Houston has for years had radiation detectors to scan cargo; acquired about a hundred devices that allow game wardens to detect radiological or nuclear emissions. These are little devices that can be worn on someone’s belt.” They’re about the size of a cellphone and can help a warden determine if something suspicious is radioactive. It wouldn’t necessarily have to be connected to terrorism: radioactive materials used in the energy and medical industries can be illegally dumped.
New Delhi:- The government has given an “in-principle” approval to sites for locating 46 new reactors comprising 23 twin unit projects in a phased manner, the Rajya Sabha was informed today.This is perhaps for the first time that the government has revealed “in-principle” approval to these many sites.The government has also given in-principle approval to reactors with foreign technical cooperation.
Small amounts of a probable carcinogen were found in more than 80 water systems in every part of the state, according to an analysis of federal data by The Record. The chemical, 1,4-dioxane, raised concerns after it was found at a Superfund site in Ringwood. 1,4-dioxane can damage the liver, kidney and respiratory systems.

Desire to eat pure, uncontaminated, healthy food now diagnosed as a mental disorder known as orthorexia nervosa. “Orthorexics refusing to touch sugar, salt, caffeine, alcohol, wheat, gluten, yeast, soy, corn and dairy; foods that have come into contact with pesticides, herbicides or contain artificial additives. Jennifer Culbert , a registered dietician: if someone cuts out processed food, or things that are genetically modified, or not grown organically, the danger is that they can become malnourished or underweight.”
France just approved plans to totally ban some widely used pesticides blamed for harming bees, going above and beyond European Union (EU) restrictions.
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder boasted in March that the lead-in-the-water crisis plaguing the city of Flint for months had actually spurred job growth. Though Snyder has been heavily criticized for tight-fisted budgeting that enabled the crisis, 81 temporary workers have been recently hired -- to hand out bottled water so that residents would not have to hydrate themselves with poisoned municipal water.
. General Mills (GM), the same company that tried to impair genetically modified food-labeling by donating more than a million dollars to defeat legislation in several states, is about to label its products containing genetically modified ingredients. GM announced that it will label all their products if they contain genetically modified ingredients; says that it will label GM products due to a need to be cost-effective with Vermont’s new GMO labeling law going into effect this summer..”

Human rights come in many forms.
Naohiro Masuda, Tepco’s head of decommissioning “It is extremely difficult to access the inside of the nuclear plant.”The biggest obstacle is the radiation.”“It takes two years to develop a single-function robot.” As soon as Tepco’s robots, co-designed with Toshiba, get close to Reactor 3, their circuitry gets destroyed by the radiation. The robots are designed to “swim” in the radiated pools where the radioactive fuel rods are located, to search for and recover them.
Judge Anne Hirsch awarded a summary judgment in a suit brought against the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association by Attorney General Bob Ferguson, finding the GMA guilty of a money laundering scheme that shielded members’ identities as they helped to defeat Washington’s 2013 GMO labeling ballot initiative, I-522, with their donations.
Salmon caught in the Puget Sound were recently found to be contaminated with a toxic cocktail of 81 drugs and chemicals. Drugs these fish were on included:
Birth control pills (estrogen)
Cipro and other antibiotics

Japan’s prime minister at the time of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami revealed the country came within a “paper-thin margin” of a nuclear disaster requiring evacuation of 50 million people. He said he considered evacuating the capital, Tokyo, along with all other areas within 160 miles of the plant, and declaring martial law. “The future existence of Japan as a whole was at stake,”“Something on that scale, an evacuation of 50 million, it would have been like a losing a huge war,” admitted he was frightened and said he got “no clear information” out of Tepco, the plant’s operator.
A team at University of California is working on a planetary defense project they’ve dubbed the “De-Star” — Direct Energy System for Targeting Asteroids and exploRation. The laser weapon would be used to protect planet Earth from rogue asteroids by vaporizing them. A smaller version would fly alongside asteroids and provide a last line of defense should the object make a run toward Earth.

Monsanto is suing the State of California for its intent to include glyphosate — the main ingredient in its wildly popular herbicide, Roundup — on its Proposition 65 toxic chemicals list. California’s decision came after the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified glyphosate as a “probable carcinogen” in March 2015.
Five years ago this month a devastating tsunami engulfed Japan's northeastern coast, triggering the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl. Today the disaster site remains in crisis mode. Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), currently circulates water through the three melted units to keep them cool—generating a relentless supply of radioactive water. TEPCO collects the contaminated water and stores it all in massive tanks atrate of 400 metric tons a day. Groundwater flowing from a hill behind the crippled plant now mingles with radioactive materials before heading into the sea.
Atmospheric carbon dioxide, in early February, reached a level not seen on the planet in the last 15 million years.

Many species of wild bees, butterflies and other critters that pollinate plants shrinking toward extinction. The world needs to do something about it before our food supply suffers, a new United Nations scientific mega-report warns. 20,000 or so species of pollinators are key to hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of crops each year — from fruits and vegetables to coffee and chocolate. 2 out of 5 species of invertebrate pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, are on the path toward extinction. Pollinators with backbones, such as hummingbirds and bats,slightly better off, with 1 in 6 species facing extinction.“We are in a period of decline and there are going to be increasing consequences,”
Long before state authorities publicly acknowledged problems with drinking water in Flint, Michigan, internal emails show that advisers to Michigan Governor Rick Snyder advocated moving the water supply from the polluted Flint River back to the Detroit water system.
Three former executives of Tokyo Electric Power Co. will be indicted Monday for allegedly failing to take measures to prevent the tsunami-triggered crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex, a lawyer in charge of the case said Friday.
A St. Louis jury has recently awarded $72 million to the family of a woman from Alabama whose ovarian cancer death was traced to years of using Johnson & Johnson talcum powder.
Factors such climate change and land use changes are driving many pollinator species—including 16 percent of vertebrate pollinators—towards extinction. For invertebrate pollinators like bees and butterflies, over 40 percent of species may be be threatened locally, poses risks to the global food supply..
Yelp employee said she was fired after she blogged about the financial pressures she felt working for the multibillion-dollar business;her breaking point came when she went to sleep, woke up "starving" two hours later.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders is calling for a federal criminal investigation into Gov. Rick Snyder and his administration after it was revealed that the Snyder administration knew of a potential link between a Legionnaires' disease outbreak and the water in Flint, Michigan.
Their genetically modified (GM) crops have not increased yields, despite claims to the contraryt they have : 1) encouraged monoculture, industrialized farming, 2) smothered out the sustainable, non-GM farmer, 3) waylaid beneficial insect populations and aquatic habitats with Bt toxins, 4) caused the emergence of several superweeds, 5) increased the use of chemical herbicides, notably Roundup, and 6) undertaken a giant human heath experiment with GM foods. Monsanto supplied U.S. government with Agent Orange used to decimate vast swaths of tropical rainforest; white phosphorus (WP) for incendiary weapons, some of this white phosphorus was used in Israel’s invasion of Gaza in 2008,
The mass of dead seabirds that have washed up on Alaska beaches in past months is unprecedented in size, scope and duration; coincides with widespread deaths of other marine animals, from whales in the Gulf of Alaska to sea lions in California.
High-ranking officials in Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder's administration were aware of a surge in Legionnaires' disease potentially linked to Flint's water long before the governor reported the increase to the public last month, internal emails show. When he disclosed the spike in Legionnaires' cases on Jan. 13, Snyder said he had learned about it just a couple of days earlier. But emails obtained by Progress Michigan through public-records requests show Snyder's own office was aware of the outbreak since last March.
Sanders helped to pass legislation that protects family-owned farms, with the Farm Bill in 2014. He also supports allowing states to require labels on foods containing “genetically modified organisms” (GMOs) based on the consumer’s right-to-know
In a move that will likely upset Biotech’s long-term plans for Africa, the African country Burkina Faso has abandoned genetically modified Bt Cotton crops in order to phase out inferior quality GM crops for non-GM crops.
A Japanese company is to open the world’s first “robot farm.”,Spread, a vegetable producer, said industrial robots would carry out all but one of the tasks needed to grow the tens of thousands of lettuces it produces each day at its vast indoor farm in Kameoka, Kyoto prefecture.The robots will do everything from re-planting young seedlings to watering, trimming and harvesting crops, will boost production from 21,000 lettuces a day to 50,000 a day,
Biotech lobbyists are staging a "below-the-radar attack" on European regulations, attempting to have new genetic modification (GM) techniques excluded from rules that impact the environment, food safety, and consumer choice, according to a new report from the Brussels-based Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO). Corporations like Bayer, BASF, Dow Agrosciences, and Monsanto, are essentially trying to circumvent Europe's relatively strict regulation of GM organisms, which includes a mandated assessment of health and environmental risks, as well as labeling
Chemical contamination and heavy metals pollution driving human minds to clinical madness. The reason society is insane at every level is rooted in the consumption of toxic heavy metals through food, water and other environmental sources much like the Roman Empire which fed its people water that was, unbeknownst to them, poisoned with lead.
Generally recognized as safe” was the basis for a federal judge’s decision on January 29 to order Greek yogurt-maker Chobani to stop airing ads that insinuated that competitors’ products were “unsafe or harmful” and contained chemicals used to kill bugs or clean swimming pools. Judge David Hurd, U.S. District Court for Northern New York called the ads “misleading ordering Chobani cease advertising implying that Dannon products “are unhealthy because they contain chlorine and that Chobani products, including Chobani Simply 100 Greek, are healthy because they do not contain chlorine.”
