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.

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.

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.
