The end of Agribusiness insanity can only be destruction of the system that truly provides food: the earth's ecology. When that has been well and truly subverted, Gaia will strike back in the greatest passive-aggressive display ever seen: The earth will simply stop providing.
In a look back at genetic modification of animals, we can be glad that the Enviropig didn't make it to market. Although there was a public outcry, it had little to do with its failure. The problem was that Agribusiness had no interest. We dodged that bullet, but GM salmon will likely be a different story unless there's a huge outcry.
Genetically modified salmon are more dangerous than anyone had realized. It's now proven beyond doubt that they can interbreed with not only wild salmon, but also trout. Worse, the result is offspring that grow even faster than their parents and can outcompete them by a huge amount.
Synthetic Biology and DNA Printing: What Are They? Can they really just print out DNA? Or is it hype? Is it a new Pandora's box? The developers of this new technology claim that it's nothing more than the next step of evolution—that genetic engineering is no different than what nature has always done.
Monsanto may have pushed too hard and too far. Their supposedly sequestered Oregon trial of GM wheat escaped, and was found years later and miles away. As a result, other countries are refusing to allow any wheat exports from the US in the fear of contamination.
Since good soil takes effort and money to maintain, Agribusiness hasn't bothered. As a result, basics required for all life, including phosphorus, are now supplied by mining instead of soil. It's resulted in inferior food, but the situation is even worse. Phosphorus reserves are running low, leaving us to face starvation.
Turkeys are taking revenge for the horrendous treatment by Agribusiness. Most ground turkey tested by Consumer Reports was contaminated with drug-resistant bacteria. But if you want to solve the problem, you'll need to ignore their advice. There's no solution within a system that treats food as nothing but a commodity.
When food and gardening are treated as if they're nothing more than commodities, especially when control is placed in the hands of those whose sole interest is profits, then the people under such rule are living in total tyranny. That's exactly what the EU is in the process of doing: handing the most basic of food rights, access to..
Bluetongue can be a deadly disease of sheep. The standard approach to an outbreak is vaccination, vaccination, & more vaccination. A new study shows that these vaccines cause an autoimmune neurological disorder called ASIA—the same that vaccines can induce in humans. This study of Spanish sheep provides a frightening look into its..
Glyphosate has likely caused more damage to human health than any other chemical ever produced. Indeed, it is probably a cause of the explosion in chronic diseases. Surely civilization cannot be maintained when the average person is irrevocably ill. This trajectory of human misery must come to an end.
A new study has demonstrated glyphosate's ability to interfere with gut biota and underlying metabolic functions. The conclusion that glyphosate is a major factor in nearly all modern chronic diseases is inescapable. Here's how those disturbed metabolic functions are associated with conditions like autism, cancer, and Alzheimer's
Glyphosate is assumed to be safe for humans. As a result, it's become the world's best-selling herbicide. However, a groundbreaking study documents that it may actually be fueling the plague of chronic & immune diseases, including cancer and autism. This study documents the underlying systemic damage produced by glyphosate, then..
The EPA is utterly derelict in its duty to regulate neurotoxic pesticides. Neonicotinoids are killing our primary pollinators, the bees. Less known, though, is that they're also wiping out one of the real farmers' best friends: birds. They're on a devastating decline that can clearly be linked to the massive use of these deadly..
Years ago, Gaia Health informed that bee dieoffs are a direct result of pesticide nerve agents called neonicotinoids. The term, Colony Collapse Disorder, is fraudulent, designed to direct attention from the known cause. Agribusiness, the poison manufacturers making death-producing pesticides, is the other face of Big Pharma.
