Global Eco-Management - Turning Away From Dinosaur-Technologies Such As "Green Biotechnology" Or Agro Genetic Engineering, Factory Farming And Dangerous Pesticides

Abstract: rejecting materialism. Rejecting agro genetic engineering in Europe. But also worldwide rejecting of agro-biotechnology and hybride-technologies. Many asian farmers want to care about their fields themselves again, and they have become more self-confident. "Local rice seeds and organic fertilizer bring us prosperity". Of course there are still advocates of agro-biotechnology such as Robert Zeigler, Director of the International Rice research institute on Pilippines (IRRI), Achim Dobermann, chief of research in IRRI, Steen Riisgaard, largest producer of genetically modified enzymes and leader of danish World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Mike Mack (Syngenta), Ingo Potrykus and Peter Beyer from ETH Zurrich, Melinda and Bill Gates Foundation etc; but all what you can hear is mainly echo out of emty heads. Until now philippine farmers refuse to grow hybride and genetically modified seeds from Bayer, Monsanto, Syngenta, Pioneer - despite of lavish subventions. They complain about too small prices, no demand for it and poor quality. The same apply to "golden rice", which was created with gentic engineering by Ingo Potrykus and Peter Beyer from ETH Zurrich 10 years ago. It contains more  provitamine A, iron and essential amino acids as normal rice is said to prevent deficiency symtoms. Nowadays it is well known that artificially added vitamins or those added by genetic engineering can cause heavy diseases. This is a fact that should be known by all interested human beings with ability to take things in. Bill Gates is not one of this group. His Melinda and Bill Gates foundation supports the spread of these kind of genetically modified seeds. Green, red, and white biotechnology not suitable for global eco-management.

The Five Main GM Foods Are Soy, Corn, Cotton, Canola And Sugar Beets. Products Made Of These GM Foods Such As Sugar, High Fructose Sirope, Lecithine Are More Toxic Than Expected. Even FDA And EFSA Gave Wrong Testimonials Over Years; They Failed Together With Many Leading Politicians (For Instance Obama, Cameron...)

Abstract: GMOs are pervasive and high-risk. The five main GM foods are soy, corn, cotton, canola, and sugar beets. Their derivatives are found in more than 70% of the foods in the supermarket. The primary reason the plants are engineered is to allow them to drink poison. They're inserted with bacterial genes that allow them to survive otherwise deadly doses of poisonous herbicide. Biotech companies sell the seed and herbicide as a package deal. Roundup Ready crops survive sprays of Roundup. Liberty Link crops survive Liberty. US farmers use hundreds of millions of pounds more herbicide because of these herbicide-tolerant crops, and the higher toxic residues end up inside of us. All GM crops, in fact, should be considered high-risk. Irrespective of which gene you insert, the process of genetic engineering itself results in massive collateral damage within the plants' natural DNA. This can result in new or higher levels of toxins, carcinogens, allergens, or nutrient-blocking compounds in our food. The liver is a primary detoxifier. Its condition can indicate if there are toxins in our food. Mice and rats fed GM feed had profound changes in their livers. In some cases, livers were smaller and partially atrophied. Some were significantly heavier, possibly inflamed. And certain cellular changes indicated a toxic insult from the GM diet. Although no studies have looked at the impact of eating meat or milk from GM-fed animals, secret FDA documents made public from a lawsuit revealed that their Center for Veterinary Medicine was very concerned that toxins from GM foods might bioaccumulate in the livestock. If so, their milk and meat may be even more dangerous than the GM plants. (2009,Vol.8 # 309)

Bush- And Obama Administration Left Behind Nothing But Contaminated Land, Junk Scientists And Junk Burocrats

Even Obama's team includes dangerous biotech "Yes Men". Every country has it's Biotech “Yes Men” and "Yes women". The most prominent in Germany for instance are Annette Schavan and Angela Merkel. Both are well known for their ability to take the best from what is useless. They don't stop on the way in the blind alley. They love junk science and support biotech- and pesticide-industry in Germany and Europe. Maybe one day one will say Merkel-Administration left behind nothing but contaminated land, junk scientists and junk burocrats. Biotech “Yes Men” on Obama’s team threaten to expand the use of dangerous genetically modified (GM) foods in our diets. Instead of giving us change and hope, they may prolong the hypnotic “group think” that has been institutionalized over three previous administrations—where critical analysis was abandoned in favor of irrational devotion to this risky new technology. Food Safety Lies.  Who flooded the market with dangerous GMOs. Bush’s environmental legacy on GMOs is irreversible. Bush policies institutionalize GMO contamination.

Monsanto, FDA And The GM-Crop-Disaster

The US government payments to farmers are several $ billions annually due to GM crops. Growers have only been kept afloat by the huge jump in subsidies. genetic pollution caused by today’s GMOs could theoretically outlast the effects of global warming and nuclear waste. Genetically modified sugar beets. A brand killed about 100 Americans and caused 5,000-10,000 to become sick or permanently disabled. The average GM crop reduces yield. Herbicide tolerant crops lower yields and increase herbicide use. In India thousands of Bt cotton farmers committed suicide - the rate in one region was one suicide every eight hours. On Monsanto`s bribery-system, dirty tricks, pack of lies and all the little blackguards and vice-blackguards: FDA policy created by Michael Taylor states, "The agency is not aware of any information showing that foods derived by these new methods differ from other foods in any meaningful or uniform way." On the basis of this sentence, the FDA claimed that no safety studies are necessary; biotech companies thus determine on their own if their products are harmless. Internal records were made public due to a lawsuit and the deception came to light. But it was too late. GM crops were widespread - and Michael Taylor had been duly rewarded after leaving the FDA by becoming a Monsanto vice president. (2008,Vol.7 # 202)

Biosafety? Unscientific Assumptions The Basis Of Approvals? - Blatant Propaganda Exercise Stands Validated As Exemplary Science - Toxic GM Foods Could Have Been Approved

Submissions to the US Food and Drug Administraion (FDA) may be worse than in other countries, since the agency doesn't actually require any data. Their policy—overseen by Monsanto's former attorney who later became the company's vice president—says that biotech companies can determine if their own foods are safe. Anything  submitted is voluntary and, according to former Environmental Protection Agency scientist Doug Gurian-Sherman, "often lack[s] sufficient detail, such as necessary statistical analyses needed for an adequate safety evaluation." Using Freedom of Information Requests, Gurian-Sherman analyzed more than a fourth of the data summaries of GM crops reviewed by the FDA. He says, "Our evaluation found that the biotechnology companies provide inadequate data to ensure their products are safe".
Two GM foods whose commercialization was stopped because of negative test results give a chilling example of what may be getting through. Rats fed GM potatoes had potentially precancerous cell growth in the stomach and intestines, less developed brains, livers, and testicles, partial atrophy of the liver, and damaged immune systems. GM peas provoked an inflammatory response in mice, suggesting that the peas might trigger a deadly anaphylactic shock in allergic humans. Both of these dangerous crops, however, could easily have been approved. The problems were only discovered because the researchers used advanced tests that were never applied to GM crops already on the market. Both would have passed the normal tests that companies typically use to get their products approved. Ironically, when Monsanto was asked to comment on the pea study, their spokesperson said it demonstrated that the regulatory system works. He failed to disclose that none of the company's GM crops had been put through such rigorous tests. (2007, Vol. 6, #182)

Genetically Modified (GM) Foods Are Unhealthy And Unsafe

Genetically modified (GM) foods are inherently unsafe, and current safety assessments are not competent to protect us from or even identify most dangers. Soy allergies jumped 50% in the U.K. just after GM soy was introduced. immune responses are triggered by both the natural Bt toxin in spray form and Bt crops. The concentration of Bt toxin in crops, however, can be thousands of times higher than in sprays; and changes in its protein structure make the crop version more likely to provoke reactions in humans. Additional evidence: When populations were exposed to Bt spray, hundreds complained of allergic reactions; exposed farm workers also exhibited antibody responses.
Bt-cotton workers in India reported sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, skin eruptions, itching and burning, red skin and eyes, facial swelling, and fever. Some people required hospitalization. The two lists are nearly identical-only "exacerbations of asthma" was on the spray list and not the other. Asthma and breathing difficulties were reported by Filipinos who inhaled Bt-corn pollen. They also described swollen faces, flu-like symptoms, fever, and sneezing. Some individuals in both India and the Philippines also reported long-term effects after exposure. The list of symptoms in the Philippines, however, did contain items not reported by the other two groups. These included coughs, headache, stomach ache, dizziness, diarrhea, vomiting, weakness, and numbness. Reproductive Problems. (2007, Vol. 6, #180)

The Full Catastrophe Of Agrobiotechnology Part V

The whole catastrophe of genetically modified foods and GMOs can be seen by daylight now. Companies like Monsanto gave bribes and questionable payments to officials, attempting to get their genetically modified (GM) plants approved. On Monsanto`s bribery-system, dirty tricks, pack of lies and all the little blackguards and vice-blackguards. BASF-CEO Jürgen Hamprecht tells us about his partnership with Monsanto because he believes in the 'compentence' of Monsanto in these matters.
