Genetically modified organisms are a terrifying development when we know they exist, but there's a new system of creating GMOs that's getting a complete pass. By fiat, our governments are allowing a process that produces genetically modified 'foods' for sale with absolutely no oversight. They can be called natural, or simply not labeled...
Junk food restaurants don't want you to know what's in the stuff they sell you. Here's a clear example of just how true that is. McDonald's does a good job of, first, implying that one of their products is 100% meat, and then, if you decide that might not be true, kinda sorta letting you know that it isn't, but then making it more than a..
Syngenta and Bayer are suing the European Union because they believe they have the right to sell their poisons, even if it kills all the bees and results in mass starvation. They don't care. They're corporations. They love one thing: money. And they have the power to get just about anything they want. Here's the truth of how it got to..
If you buy meat from a supermarket, fast food or most other restaurants, this is where it comes from. It's not only horrific for the animals, it's utterly dehumanizing. [6:02] Even if you don't care about your health, surely you must care about your fellow humans who surely suffer in these dehumanizing and degrading positions or the..
Agribusiness is in a mad rush to take over the earth, and seems willing to stop at nothing. Coming soon is cabbage with scorpion poison engineered in every cell. Of course, they claim it's safe and will result in less pesticide use, but history and logic say otherwise. Who will wake from the insane mating between Agribiz and GMOs?
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.
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..
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.
