Glyphosate and skyrocketing disease rates… connecting the dots.

Plant-killer Glyphosate (Roundup) was assumed to be harmless to humans because it interrupts the shikimate pathway in plants and kills them, and humans do not have this pathway.

What has now come to light is that our gut bacteria DO have the shikimate pathway, and by killing our good bacteria (we have 10 gut microbes for every human cell), a cascade of effects occurs which are devastating to health and are linked to autism, inflammatory bowel disease, chronic diarrhea, colitis and Crohn’s disease, obesity, cardiovascular disease, depression, cancer, cachexia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and ALS, and more.

In this video which is about one hour, GMO expert Jeffrey Smith talks to co-author of the new groundbreaking article just published in the journal Entropy, Stephanie Seneff, PhD, a Senior Research Scientist at MIT.

I consider this information to be of the utmost importance and it’s absolutely critical to understand. It shows how intimately our biology is connected to nature, how complex it is, and that by doing unnatural things to our food, we are on a path to more and more sickness, disease and suffering.

How to Keep Monsanto Out of Your Home Garden

garden 003

The safest and most fool-proof way to consume pure, organic produce that is not tainted with modified genes or growth hormones is to grow your own food!

It is a growing trend in America to grow food from heirloom and organic seed. This gives the grower full knowledge of what the plant is and where it came from. What many gardeners and farmers don’t know is that Monsanto owns many of the organic and heirloom seed stock! In 2005, Monsanto bought the world’s largest seed company, Seminis. Seminis owns 40% of America’s conventional seed stock and 20% of the world’s.

Monsanto has bought up seeds everywhere, so it can be hard for the home gardener to grow a garden without supporting this evil company! But don’t fret, there are ways to completely avoid Monsanto from entering your garden.  Continue reading

New genetically engineered pig — “Pig 26”

This new pig called “pig 26” has been engineered using a new method called “gene-editing” which scientist claim is precise. The reason? Immunity to African swine fever, a virus which can kill European pigs within 24 hours of infection.

Article “Move over Dolly the sheep, here’s the genetically engineered pig that could bring home the bacon” http://bit.ly/Zaj6oQ

The gene edit was taken from a wild pig that cannot naturally breed with European pigs.

This new gene-editing was “Method of the Year 2011: Gene-editing nucleases” – by Nature Video. More details on YouTube: http://youtu.be/zDkUFzZoQAs

I wonder what happened to Pig 1 to 25?

Grow your own

It’s that time of year when we think about the garden a lot more than at other times of year, because there’s that limited window of opportunity to sow seeds.

Have you got plans for yours?

I’ve been watching a few videos of Vandana Shiva on YouTube recently and in one of the videos she said something that stuck in my mind… “To solve a big problem (the mess of the food industry, industrial agriculture and GMOs) we need to do small things. Only the small can multiply and diversify enough to solve the problem.”

And I would add: Only the small can CARE.

That small thing we need is more people re-connecting to the earth and growing food. Did you know that in India there are laws that prevent farms becoming too big? That means that farming is kept small, as it should be, in the hands of people and families, not corporations.

So what to grow?

growGROW WHAT YOU EAT!

Make a list of the fruits and vegetables you eat a lot of, and grow those in a natural way that mimics nature… the forest.  Continue reading

GMOs in 80% of processed food

80%

Did you know that over 80% of processed foods contain GMOs? Current GMO crops are: corn, soy, cottonseed, canola, sugar beets, papaya, zucchini and squash.

These crops show up in multiple forms- Click here to view a full GMO ingredient list.

The power of corporations

Do you think that in a flawed system, corporate success favors a psychopathic profile?

THE CORPORATION is a Canadian documentary film written by Joel Bakan, and directed by Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott. The documentary examines the modern-day corporation, considering its legal status as a class of person and evaluating its behavior towards society and the world at large as a psychiatrist might evaluate an ordinary person. This is explored through specific examples. Bakan wrote the book, The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power, during the filming of the documentary.

Habitat loss

Horned-Lark-300x207

The loss of habitat is real in the corn belt, as are its potential effects on a host of grassland bird species, some hunted, some not.

A new study concludes that declines of such birds, from the ring-necked pheasant to the horned lark, are more the result of pesticide use than any other factor, including habitat decline.

What are the solutions to agriculture, health, and the environment?

What are the answers to the problems facing agriculture, health, bees, wildlife etc?

I think we need to localize not industrialize and we need to quit the “cides” and we need more farmers not less, and we need to value high-quality food, and we need to embrace an ecologically bio-diverse, higher perennial, lower grain food production model.
