WWF and Zoological Society of London: Tuna and mackerel populations suffered a “catastrophic” decline of nearly three quarters in the last 40% years, according to new research, warned that we face losing species critical to human food security, unless drastic action is taken to halt overfishing and other threats to marine life. Bluefin tuna, now on the verge of extinction, yellowtail tuna and albacore, also becoming increasingly scarce.
Arctic sea ice this year reached its fourth lowest level in recorded history, the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) revealed Tuesday.
Duke University-led study found that the coal ash researchers tested were up to 5 times higher than in normal soil, and as much as 10 times higher than the parent coal itself due to the concentration of radioactivity caused by combustion. Coal ash is unregulated, contained in holding ponds and landfills in coal-fired power plants across the nation.
New contaminants, some more – toxic than ‘traditional’ pollutants like heavy metals, are finding their way into the world’s rivers, lakes, groundwater and drinking water from sources such as artificial sweeteners, nanomaterials, perfumes, medical drugs, hormones, sunscreens, flame retardants, non-stick coatings, pesticide breakdown products, hospital wastes, by-products of detergents, disinfectants and swimming pool cleansers.
Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant on Monday started releasing once-contaminated water into the sea, saying a filtration process has now made it safe.

Floods may pose threat not only to radiation under Fukushima but also structures’ — Severe floods have hit Japan sending tons of radiation-contaminated water from the Fukushima nuclear plant into the ocea confirmed by the facility’s operator Tokyo Electric Power. Authorities have declared the situation an emergency. Enormous amount of radioactivity underneath the plant.
Massive earthquakes, volcanoes, tidal waves, and natural disasters galore—Japan would seem a rather precarious perch for nuclear power plants. Flooding from Tropical Storm Etau, overwhelmed the water pumps at the infamous ruins of Fukushima, washing more radioactive waste into the ocean, another reminder of how fragile Japan’s atomic energy program really is.
After unearthing a 30,000-year-old virus from the icy wasteland of Siberia, scientists plan to awaken it under the premise of ‘fear that a warming climate will awaken dangerous microscopic pathogens.’
At least 82 large bags filled with radioactive waste from decontamination efforts were washed away when a river overflowed in the Fukushima prefectural village of Iitate.
Researchers analyzed 219 pollen and 53 honey samples from 62 hives, found neonicotinoids in pollen and honey from almost every sample collected, in each and every location.
A U.S. appeals court ruled Thursday federal regulators erred in allowing an insecticide developed by Dow AgroSciences onto the market. Demise of the bees has become a hotly debated topic between agrichemical companies, which say the insecticides they sell are not to blame, and those who say research shows a direct connection between neonicotinoids and large bee die-offs.
Male fish are becoming hermaphroditic due to environmental insults (such as chemicals in the water), male fish now may have testes that contain eggs, and their ability to reproduce has become questionable.
Biotechnology companies like Monsanto are hiring academics to speak on their behalf about the supposed safety and benefits of genetically modified food products to help save them from a tsunami of bad press.
An appeals court in the French city of Lyon has supported a local grain grower in his battle against US herbicide producer Monsanto, upholding a previous ruling that the company is responsible for poisoning the farmer with its toxic weedkiller over ten years ago.
3 workers died in August. (cf, August’s 3rd worker died in Fukushima plant after the work of retained contaminated water beside Reactor 1

Dr. Antoniou: a very low level of consumption of Roundup weedkiller over the long term can result in liver and kidney damage, pattern of alteration was found in the gene function of the liver and kidneys at this extremely low level of exposure.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is considering a move to eliminate the “Linear No-Threshold” (LNT) basis of radiation protection that the U.S. has used for decades and replace it with the “radiation hormesis” theory—which holds that low doses of radioactivity are good for people.
One possible explanation downplayed by the mainstream media is radiation leaking from the Fukushima power plant. Exposure to even small traces of radiation can have an accumulative effect over time. Radiation from the Fukushima power plant has not stopped leaking hundred of tons of radiation leak into the ocean everyday.
The United Nations is posting a new environmental warning: the world is running out of time to prevent the gradual degradation of the world’s oceans and widespread destruction of marine life, delays in implementing solutions to problems identified as threatening to degrade the world’s oceans will lead, to greater environmental, social and economic costs.

South Korea banned imports of some marine products caught in waters off Fukushima. The Japanese government responded to the move by criticizing the measure for “lacking a scientific basis.”Tokyo has been demanding that the measure be withdrawn.
More than 90 percent of the Gaza Strip’s water is undrinkable. The rest is quickly running out. Much of Gaza’s water is contaminated with sea water.”
The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on Thursday began pumping up groundwater from wells around the reactor buildings as part of its plan to dump it into the ocean after treatment, adding it will discharge it only after confirming it does not contain radioactive materials exceeding the legally allowable limit.
The EPA’s environmental health hazard assessment office out of California has announced a move to label the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide ‘Roundup’ (and four others) as “known to cause cancer.”
United States Geological Survey collected samples from 9 sites in Nebraska and Iowa, found neonicotinoids, otherwise known as bee-killing pesticides, were present in varying amounts in every single river and stream.
The refusal of Latvia and Greece to grow Monsanto GM corn brings the total number of European countries to publicly oppose the cultivation of genetically modified crops to five.
Depending on which country you live in, GMOs may be unlabeled and therefore unknowingly abundant in your diet. Processed foods (e.g. chips, breakfast cereals, sodas) are likely to contain ingredients from GMO crops, because they are often made from corn or soy.
Almost 700,000 tons of radiation-contaminated water have accumulated at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co. disclosed Sept. 4. The water is stored in rows of massive tanks on the plant’s premises.
Past five years, number of severe heart malformations has risen more than ten times national rate; chemical companies Dow, BASF, Syngenta, DuPont spray 17 times more herbicides, insecticides and fungicides) than on ordinary cornfields in US testing the strain’s resistance to herbicides that kill other plants.
Scientists from the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry have published a damning study for Monsanto. It shows a correlation between parental exposure to the toxic herbicide Roundup and an increased chance of offspring developing brain cancer.
Contamination levels rose again in the unit 1 discharge canal near the reactor building. Our records show this may have been the highest reading yet after a series of radiation spikes since early 2015.
Diablo Canyon is the last operating nuclear power plant in California — and arguably the most controversial. The plant sits along the scenic Central Coast and is surrounded by fault lines — one of which runs as close as 2,000 feet to the nuclear reactors. Many fear that a single earthquake could cause a repeat of the 2011 Fukushima disaster in Japan.
Greenpeace has lashed out against the conclusions of IAEA’s latest report on the Fukushima disaster, calling the claim that radioactive exposure is “unlikely” to result in increased thyroid cancer risk in children a political rhetoric rather than science.
Five manufacturers of powdered caffeine informed by FDA they must stop producing some of their products, provide measuring devices for their products, or package their products in smaller amounts after the agency found some packages of the substance contained as much as 50,000 servings of caffeine. FDA called the products in question “potentially dangerous” and present “a significant or unreasonable risk of illness or injury.” A teaspoon of powdered caffeine is equivalent of 28 cups of coffee. A tablespoon can kill. A 100-gram package of powdered caffeine is equivalent to 400 “tall” Starbucks coffees, or 3,000 cans of Coke.
The country has been inching back to nuclear energy, turning on its first reactor in mid-August after a two-year blackout, with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and many in industry looking to cut fuel bills despite widespread public opposition to atomic power.
The study focused on the heavily drilled Marcellus Shale, a vast swath of marine sedimentary rock found in eastern North America, and which is known to have about 20 times higher levels of radioactivity from high uranium content compared to most other shales.
A new report from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) "downplays" the continuing environmental and health effects of the Fukushima nuclear meltdown while supporting the Japanese government's agenda to normalize the ongoing disaster, Greenpeace Japan charged on Tuesday.
Soy and corn sales eventually skyrocketed because food manufacturers could use these oils in place of butter or lard. This gave a big boost to their bottom lines.
Researchers from the National University of Río Cuarto, Cordoba (UNRC) compared children who lived close to a GM-soy growing area in Argentina to children who lived in another city in Cordoba that was not adjacent to GM soy fields. Genetic damage in the group of exposed children was 44% higher than in the unexposed children.
Agricultural Sciences, researchers have found that when soy is genetically engineered, it disrupts the plant’s natural ability to control stress and even sparks the production of carcinogenic formaldehyde.
Latvia and Greece have opted out of GMOs, as are Germany and Scotland, as part of the new allowances indicated in legislation that recently passed for EU countries.
World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer has recently determined Roundup’s glyphosate is ‘number one’ among carcinogens, use of glyphosate in herbicides increased by 250 times in the United States the last 40 years.
The Department of Agriculture has been violating the Freedom of Information Act for over thirteen years, according to the Center for Food Safety (CFS), who is now suing the Agency for withholding information on the (lack of) safety of GMO crops.
U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has rejected the recommendation of the high-level task force it convened after the March 2011 Fukushima disaster to require nuclear plant owners to develop and maintain plans for coping with a core-melt accident.
Roundup is not the only chemical approved for use just prior to harvest. Some fruits have been tested to find 13-15 different pesticides remain after harvesting. Other approved pre-harvest chemical desiccants include Paraquat.
The next time you throw a thick, juicy burger on the grill, keep this in mind: almost all ground beef on the market is contaminated with dangerous fecal matter. The news comes as researchers find horse meat and other undeclared species in products labeled ‘ground beef.’
AN EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT
Massive animal "die offs" in the Pacific. Disaster in Japan poses such a grave threat that, over time, the loss of the food chain--and in fact, the very plankton that generates the bulk of the breathable oxygen.
Rats who dined on a 33% GM diet for their full lifetimes, typically between 30 and 36 months, became seriously ill with health problems that started showing up at month four.
A company called Stericycle has produced data that it says proves organic food recalls are up. The news of the report was recently spread by the U.S. corporate media as a subtle propaganda campaign to directly condemn organic foods in hopes of offsetting growing consumer confidence and demand for organics.
Birth defects are on the rise in Hawaii, leaving many to wonder if pesticides are to blame – including some pediatricians who are witnessing a spike in birth defects in babies.
That toxic spill caused by the EPA out west continues to be a PR nightmare for the agency. Now they’re in even more trouble with the Navajo tribe, who couldn’t water their livestock because of the contamination. So the agency sent the tribe nine water tanks that turned out to be fouled with oil residue.
Monsanto has been warned, and Syngenta already moved their operations outside the county. Notice was given by Josephine County, Oregon that citizens are very serious about the GMO ban (Measure 17-58) that was passed last year. The cultivation of GMO crops will not be tolerated. Biotech companies have until September 4th, to either harvest their crops or destroy them, or face monetary penalties.
Cannabis is, in fact, extremely effective in fighting cancer, the US government admitted last week. The drug, illegal throughout most of the United States, is now recommended by the government’s official cancer advice website. Cannabis can also act as an anti-inflammatory agent, prevent the growth of cancer cells, block the flow of blood vessels to tumours, and help relieve muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis.
A class of insecticides linked to the decline of bees has more found in more than half of the streams in the United States where samples were taken, new research has found. U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) say it is the first national-scale study of the presence of neonicotinoids, or "neonics," in urban and agricultural land use settings across the nation.
Researchers from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln have just completed a comprehensive analysis of roughly 275,000 water samples from 62,000 locations across the United States. They found that the parts of the High Plains Aquifer (also often referred to as the Ogallala) is saturated with uranium at a level that is 89 times higher than the EPA’s safe limit. The southern half of California’s Central Valley was even worse, with a uranium concentration 180 times higher than the EPA’s “maximum contaminant level;” nitrates in fertilizers and animal waste can cause the oxidation of naturally occurring uranium. Texas state officials had been concealing radioactive content of state drinking water for many years.
From selling Californians their own water at high costs during the worst drought in history to donating millions to fight GMO labeling through the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association, Big Food company Nestle is becoming despised more every day. The Indian government has filed a class action suit for 6.4 billion rupees ($99 million) against Nestle’s Indian unit. The suit was sparked by Nestle selling contaminated goods and ‘trading unfairly’ after a regulator in Uttar Pradesh claimed they found excess lead in a package of Nestle’s instant noodles, with the brand name, Maggi.
Third massive marine oarfish found on the island in two years. The sleek silver fish was missing its pectoral fins and tail… perplexed researchers are looking for a reason why. Dr. Misty Paig-Tran from California State University Fullerton collected tissue samples… to determine whether it had any toxins in its system. Questions remain as to why these fish are dying. The conservationist also speculated that water pollution could be to blame.
Marijuana unfairly blamed for effects of ‘use’
Our love-hate relationship with this seven-pointed leaf has been going on for decades. In fact, marijuana was in the top five most controversial topics of 2014. And while it continues making headline, behind laboratory doors scientists are changing the way
When schools in California's Sausalito Marin City District return to session this August, they will be the first in the nation to serve their students 100 percent organic meals, sustainably sourced and free of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) accompanied by nutrition and gardening education. 2010 Healthy and Hunger Free Kids Act required schools in the U.S. to update their meal provisions to meet new USDA nutritional standards and offer more whole wheat products, fresh fruits and vegetables, and lean proteins to children who receive subsidized school lunches.
Almost 2 million people in California and the Midwest live on aquifer sites which have up to 180 times the safe level of uranium, according to a recent study by US researchers. 275,000 groundwater samples were taken for evaluation, and it turns out that many Americans live about a kilometer from wells that are uranium-polluted, scientists from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln discovered. Seventy-eight percent of the pollution comes from nitrate, the contaminator deriving from chemical fertilizers and animal waste. Nitrates oxidize uranium, making it soluble in groundwater.
Always look for the ‘USDA Organic’ certified seal. And for those who don’t trust the seal itself due to some shady practices, I can recommend you look on the back and see which ‘certifying body’ was responsible for the seal. Oregon Tilth is, generally speaking, at the top tier of organic quality.
The city of Spokane, Washington has filed a lawsuit against Monsanto for allegedly selling chemicals for decades that it knew were harmful to human and environmental health. Marlene Feist, Spokane’s utilities spokeswoman, described the suit as “long-term litigation,” pointing out that the city will spend $300 million to keep PCBs and other pollutants from entering the river in coming years – all of which were caused by Monsanto’s dumping of chemicals via paint, inks, hydraulic fluids, and industrial sealants.
The toxic spill began Aug. 5 when an EPA contractor accidentally ruptured a wall holding back millions of gallons of wastewater containing a variety of toxic substances such as mercury and lead at a closed gold mine in Colorado.
Warm water killing fish in Mat-Su and Anchorage… killing salmon in the Matanuska and Susitna valleys… Arctic char… have also gone belly up dead salmon have been found near the [Knik River's] weir… Dead fish have been turning up in other Mat-Su streams…Juneau Empire, Aug 7, 2015: Herring mystery… dead baby herring in the algae-filled empty squares of the Statter Harbor breakwater. “It’s hard to know why, but there’s a lot of them,” Juneau-based marine ecologist Michelle Ridgway] Dead herring… on Unalaska shorelines… “Hundreds ofthe few that drifted on the beach were not being eaten by the eagles, or seagulls or terns.” Scientists have been receiving reports of dead and dying whales, birds and the small fish… “Their fins are deteriorated while their eyes are intact,” [Melissa Good, Univ. of Alaska Fairbanks] said. Needlefish, thousands of millions [i.e. billions] of needlefish… For about a mile there was needlefish and smelts. Dead needlefish… It was just millions of needlefish, piles of them.
Bt toxins were found in 93% of the women tested and 80% of their unborn babies at the Sherbrooke Hospital in Canada. Glyphosate – found in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Round Up – is being found in people’s blood, urine, and breast milk around the nation
New Zealanders who eat a lot of seafood may be exposing themselves to radiation and putting their health at risk, a study suggests. Researchers found seafood such as mussels, paua and oysters contained concentrated levels of radiation. Those at particular risk were sub-populations for whom fish consumption was culturally important and those relying of fishing and shellfish collection to feed their families.
New evidence from Fukushima shows that as many as 2,000 people have died from necessary evacuations, writes Ian Fairlie, while another 5,000 will die from cancer. Future assessments of fatalities from nuclear disasters must include deaths from displacement-induced ill-heath and suicide in addition to those from direct radiation impacts.
Dr. Ramon Seidler, a retired senior scientist from the US Environmental Protection Agency, has become a leading spokesperson against genetically modified foods and the increasing use of pesticides with GM crops. GM crops literally suffocate the soil. Our soil is full of billions of tiny micro-organisms, and without them, the larger organism – the plant – cannot grow properly. Soil is a complex mixture of these micro-organisms, minerals, rock, fungi, organic matter, and bacteria. If you alter just one aspect of the soil, you alter everything that grows in it.
GM crops are taking important enzymes and minerals out of our soil.

“Campbell’s will be launching several lines of organic kid’s soups, and removing MSG from all their kid’s soups. In August 2015, the company will introduce Campbell’s Organic soup for kids in three chicken noodle varieties. The soups will be non-GMO and certified Organic. Two years ago, Campbell’s contributed over $265,000 to halt GMO labeling with Initiative 522 in Washington State.
Latest study published at Science Direct: “Potential pathways of pesticide action on erectile function – A contributory factor in male infertility,” the study shows that along with heavy metals, radioactivity, and poisonous fumes of organic chemicals, pesticides are largely contributing to erectile dysfunction and the downfall of male fertility. Of course there are numerous “psychological, physiological, pathological, social, environmental, and nutritional factors.
The Environmental Protection Agency is responsible for a spreading environmental disaster that is threatening crucial waterways throughout the Southwest. The catastrophe has contaminated rivers in Colorado and New Mexico with up to 3 million gallons of orange sludge containing lead, arsenic, cadmium and other toxic metals. One sample showed the lead level an astonishing 12,000 times the acceptable standard – standards set by the EPA. Mercury was 10 times the acceptable level, beryllium and cadmium 33 times, and arsenic 800 times.

Another dead whale washes up on Pacifica beach — Yet another dead whale washed up at a Pacifica beach in what has become an inexplicable summer trend, marine officials reported… The whale that washed up Sunday is just the latest in a string of mysterious dead whales found in the area. A humpback whale washed up on Sharp Park Beach in Pacifica in May, and in April the rotting carcass of a sperm whale on the beach near Mori Point left scientists baffled as a dissection revealed no official cause of death.
We are about to enter August. And that’s a special month in India. Each year, on the 15th, the country commemorates the anniversary of independence from Britain. To mark the occasion, official public celebrations take place in Delhi with flag waving and fly-pasts, and the corporate media is awash with patriotic sentiments. Behind the scenes, however, agriculture, the very heart and soul of the nation, will continue to be restructured for the benefit of foreign interests, raising the question: just where does the notion independence sit with such a policy?
The WHO has already declared that five of the major chemical herbicides used to grow GMO crops are either likely or definitely cancerous, yet the USA still makes secret trade deals that would allow biotech to push their genetically modified ‘food’ on Americans who don’t want to eat it.
