Weekly Women's GMO Free News: Google Hangout with Dr. Ray Siedler, Retired EPA Scientist


 Basic Issues

1. GM technology for food has nothing to do with feeding the world;
2. GMOs extend the life (and profits) of pesticides;
3. The strategy of the owners of GM technologies is to control the world's food;
4. The EPA is no longer EPA: The nation's industry is funding Congress and the president and, in return, the White House and Congress have been influencing EPA to do the bidding of the industry. All this influence is sophisticated and unrecognizable by the public. Add to this science as a fig leaf, and the EPA seems to be EPA. "Poison Spring" decodes the industry-White house-Congress-EPA complex;
5. Eat organic food and be active: Moms across America must form a political party with the ideas of the "Poison Spring" as part of their agenda to ban GMOs and most pesticides.

Pesticides Are Making Children Aggressive

Pesticides cause a multitude of adverse effects on humans. However, they are especially harmful to children. They may have something to do with the mass-shootings in schools all over America because some of them are neurotoxins. This means they affect and damage the central nervous system and the brain – of all animals, including humans.
Warren Porter, professor emeritus of zoology at the University of Wisconsin, conducted experiments with ground water – water drawn from the ground of farms with typical levels of pesticides and fertilizers. He chose farm water contaminated with the insecticide aldicarb, the herbicide atrazine, and nitrogen fertilizer. He tested that mixture on white mice and deer mice.
The concentrations of the fertilizer with each of the pesticides (aldicarb and atrazine) in the ground water were of the order of magnitude the Environmental Protection Agency says the chemicals cause “no unreasonable harm to man and the environment.” In other words, Porter put to the u…

The US Environmental Protection Agency at a Crossroad

The election of Donald Trump to the White House shows the extreme vulnerability of the idea of environmental protection in America. Trump appointed Scott Pruitt to EPA. Pruitt has been undermining the tenuous foundations of our relations with nature.
We struggled for several decades to secure the right to clean air, water and food – and give some protection to hundreds of endangered and threatened species. We have a long way for achieving these goals, but, at least, we now have a vision of where we are going.
This is important because the greatest crisis at the dawn of the twenty-first century is the steady deterioration of the natural world. The toxification of nature by chemicals, the extinction of species, and the epidemics of cancer and other diseases are serious manifestations of an industry out of control and a broken regulatory system.
For example, even infants are no longer safe. Monsanto’s weed killer glyphosate shortens the pregnancy of women. But this biocide does additiona…

The Specter of Genetic Catastrophe

I recently watched The Eugenic Crusade, PBS documentary on “improving” human evolution. Sir Francis Galton, cousin of Charles Darwin, took two Greek words, well and born, and coined Eugenics. He reasoned natural evolution was a messy, violent, and lengthy process that could use some human ingenuity and science for the benefit of the ruling classes.
Eugenics in America
American scientists and philanthropists grasped on Eugenics as a saving valve from the  reality of too many poor whites, blacks and immigrants in America in early twentieth century. Eugenics, and the fake science behind it, led to the sterilization and imprisonment of thousands of undesirable: immigrants, Jews, the poor, the mentally and physically disabled, and the “morally delinquent.”
The Nazis in Germany learned from the eugenics experience of America. They exterminated millions of Jews and other “unfit.” The defeat of Germany in WWII saved humanity from the monster of breeding people like cattle.
However, the idea…
