Brazilian protesters destroy GM crops: group

SAO PAULO (AFP) — Around 300 women rural residents in Brazil burst into a property owned by the US company Monsanto and destroyed a plant nursery and crops containing genetically modified corn, their organization said.

The women were protesting what they saw as environmental damage by the crops.

They trashed the plants within 30 minutes and left before police arrived at the site in the southern state of Sao Paulo, a member of the Landless Workers' Movement, Igor Foride, told AFP....

GM crops: 'Point of no return in ten years

SYBILLE DE LA HAMAIDE

EUROPE will increase its genetically modified (GMO) crop area by 50,000-100,000 hectares a year over the next decade, US biotech giant Monsanto has said.

"It will be slow but within ten years GMOs will have reached the point of no return," said Jean-Michel Duhamel, Monsanto's director for southern Europe.

5 Criteria for Identifying Toxic Food

If you are unsure if a food is healthy or not just use these criteria:

 

1. If you can't pronounce the ingredients, don't eat it.

2. If it wasn't here 10,000 years ago, don't eat it.

3. If it has a shelf life of more than 5 days, don't eat it.

4. If it's heavily marketed, don't eat it.

5. If it's man-made, don't eat it.

 

Glyphosate - A review of its health and environmental effects

King of kings' Bible - Enoch 68:14 Since they (men) were only created, so that, like the angels of heaven, they might remain righteous and pure.
68:15 Then death, which destroys every thing, would not have affected them;
68:16 But by this, THEIR KNOWLEDGE (science - 1 Tim. 5:20), THEY PERISH, and by this also its power consumes them.

Glyphosate is the active ingredient of some of the most common herbicides used in farming and gardening. These products have been promoted as quickly biodegradable and non toxic. People believe that they are so safe that you can drink a cup of these herbicides without any ill effect.

Consequently, it is sprayed on roadsides while people are driving, on footpaths when people are shopping and in schoolyards and sports fields, exposing children to drift and residues. People buy it from supermarkets or garden shops and use it without any protective clothing because it is deemed 'safe'. It is sprayed in national parks and other environmentally sensitive areas in the belief that it is not toxic and or residual.

I continuously hear Primary Industries officers and other agricultural specialists telling farmers that it is not necessary to wear any protective clothing because it is harmless.

Unfortunately, the facts show that this is not the case. While pure Glyphosate has a low acute toxicity (the amount needed to cause death), when it is sold as a commercial herbicide it is combined with surfactants and other ingredients to make it more effective at killing plants. Studies show that the commercial products, such as Round Up, can be three times more toxic than pure glyphosate.

Sue Bradley,

In 1798 Thomas Malthus predicted that population would increase by exponential progression while agrarian growth would progress at an arithmetic or lineal rate thus causing catastrophic degeneration and inevitable famine and plague. Though Malthus’ solutions were reflective of societal morality, his conclusions were based on economic ratios where geometric progression always exceeds linear expansion.

While Thomas Maltus errantly applied his Essay on the Principle of Population to nineteenth century Europe, his predictions seem eerily prescient and applicable to recent global agricultural, environmental, political and scientific events. http://i.am/jah/environ.htm

As recently as twenty years ago, with dramatic advances in food enhancements, growth acceleration, preservation and delivery, the ability to produce and provide better than subsistence level nutrition was becoming feasible. The spectre of third world families on drought stricken expanses might finally have been poised for extinction and purged from modern memory and history.

And while the eyes of proud western civilizations watched political walls collapse and treaties signed, then turned to focus on ‘humanitarian’ welfare and unprecedented technological and scientific maturation, it seemed as though a seal was loosed just a bit somewhere. Slowly a backwash began to seep in.

Canadian farmer on global crusade against GM seeds

Canadian farmer on global crusade against GM seeds

NEW DELHI, Feb 8 (AFP) Feb 08, 2007

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20070208/sc_afp/indiacanadafarmgm

When Monsanto decided to take Canadian farmer Percy Schmeiser to court for using its seeds, the US biotech giant didn't know it was creating a folk hero for the anti-GM crop movement.
http://i.am/ jah/genet.htm

Since losing a series of court battles with Monsanto, Schmeiser has been travelling the world on a crusade against genetically modified (GM) crops and patenting seeds, speaking to environment groups and public gatherings.
http://i.am/ jah/environ.htm

"I've always campaigned on the right of a farmer to save and use his own seed," Schmeiser told an anti-GM conference of environmentalists and farmers in the Indian capital this week.

GM crops have become a hot-button issue in India with some seeing it as key to boosting food output while others fear the long-term impact of such a step.

"No one should have the right to patent life, it's a mad science," said the 76-year-old Schmeiser.

Schmeiser's run-in with Monsanto began in 1998 when the company told him he had infringed a patent for a genetically modified strain of canola it found growing on his farm in Saskatchewan.

Venezuela to Prohibit Transgenic Crops Wednesday

Apr 21, 2004

By: Jason Tockman - Venezuelanalysis. com

CARACAS, April 21, 2004 (Venezuelanalysis. com) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez Frias has announced that the cultivation of genetically modified crops will be prohibited on Venezuelan soil, possibly establishing the most sweeping restrictions on transgenic crops in the Western Hemisphere. Though full details of the administration's policy on genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are still forthcoming, the statement by President Chavez will lead most immediately to the cancellation of a contract that Venezuela had negotiated with the U. S.-based Monsanto Corporation. Before a recent international gathering of supporters in Caracas, President Chavez admonished genetically engineered crops as contrary to interests and needs of the nation's farmers and farmworkers. He then zeroed in on Monsanto's plans to plant up to 500,000 acres of transgenic soybeans in Venezuela.

Pioneer Hi-Bred’s website boasts that their genetically modified (GM) Liberty Link[1] corn survives doses of Liberty herbicide, which would normally kill corn. The reason, they say, is that the herbicide becomes “inactive in the corn plant.”[2] They fail to reveal, however, that after you eat the GM corn, some inactive herbicide may become reactivated inside your gut and cause a toxic reaction. In addition, a gene that was inserted into the corn might transfer into the DNA of your gut bacteria, producing long-term effects. These are just a couple of the many potential side-effects of GM crops that critics say put the public at risk.

The same transgenic proteins implicated in two different GM crops

We recently reported illnesses and deaths among villagers of south Mindanao in the Philippines that are suspected of being linked to the genetically modified ‘Bt’ maize with an insecticidal protein from the soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis  [1] (“GM ban long overdue, five deaths and dozens ill in the Philippines”, SiS 29).

Since then, similar illnesses are reported to have occurred in Madhya Pradesh, central India, as a result of exposure to ‘Bt’ cotton genetically modified with the same or similar insecticidal protein(s).

India began commercial planting of Bt cotton in 2002/03 with 38 038 ha (0.78 percent of hybrid area), increasing to 6.4 percent and 11.65 percent respectively in 2003/4 and 2004/5. Currently, nearly 9 million ha of cotton is grown in India, 2.8 million hybrid cotton.

Madhya Pradesh is India’s fifth largest cotton producing state, with Malwa and Nimad the main cotton growing regions. The Bt cotton varieties planted were developed by Monsanto, and carry the insecticidal Cry1Ac protein (Bollgard) or both Cry1Ac and Cry1Ab proteins (Bollgard II), according to an article on the industry’s website [2].
