Brazil Gears Up To Supply Non-GM Soy To India

Following news that China is ordering non-GM soy from Brazil, the non-GM soy producers of Brazil are gearing up to sell their crop to India as well. Soon all countries outside the GM-producing Americas will be sourcing non-GM soy. Except, that is, the UK, which is now stuck in a GM ghetto.

Take action and ask the UK supermarkets to proactively source non-GM soy from Brazil:

To cater for consumption, India can buy Brazilian soybeans. Brazil is able to meet the Indian demand for non-GM soybeans, says Abrange Vivian Lessa

The high consumption and low yield of the soybean plants in India can cause the country to import the grain produced in Brazil. Indian projections leave Brazilian producers optimistic, mainly over the cultivation of non-GM soy.

According to the president of the Association of Soy Producers (Aprosoja-Brazil), Glauber Silveira, who visited India last month, in India as in most countries, it is not possible to increase the agricultural area. Moreover, he notes that the Indian population is changing its eating habits and soy consumption has been growing 6% per year.

As Silveira said, India produces about 11 million tons of soybeans and 8 million tons of bran from which a maximum of 3.4 million are consumed internally. This means that 60% of the bran is left over to be exported.

Ivan Paghi, the technical director of Abrange, the Brazilian Association of Non-GM Grain Producers, adds that India is not prepared to export soybeans. “Crop yield is around 1800 pounds per acre. This situation hinders competitiveness with other exporting countries, such as Brazil.”

He points out that India consumes non-GM grains. Abrange says Brazil is able to meet this exclusive market, considering that non-GM soybeans make up 20% of the Brazilian crop. In this case, Mato Grosso is in a more comfortable situation, taking into account that 25% of its oilseed crops [including soybeans] are non-GM.

As many as 2 million people in 436 cities in 52 countries around the world may have demonstrated in March Against Monsanto protests conducted Saturday, according to theAssociated Press, which cited event organizers.

The demonstrators targeted the St. Louis-based Monsanto Co. (NYSE:MON) because of its historical role in introducing genetically modified products into the food supply. GM products are controversial for a number of reasons. One centers on health risks; another centers on labeling.

Because labeling is not mandatory but voluntary in many jurisdictions, such as the U.S., consumers are not universally made aware which products are GM and which products are not GM. Hence, one sign singled out by AP in its coverage of the March Against Monsanto protest in Los Angeles Saturday read, “Label GMOs, It’s Our Right to Know.”

The March Against Monsanto was the brainchild of Tami Canal, who created a Facebookpage Feb. 28 calling for a rally against the seed company’s practices. “If I had gotten 3,000 people to join me, I would have considered that a success,” AP quoted Canal as saying Saturday. Event organizers also employed Twitter in an attempt to both document and maximize the turnout.

“It was empowering and inspiring to see so many people, from different walks of life, put aside their differences and come together today,” Canal said. “We will continue until Monsanto complies with consumer demand. They are poisoning our children, poisoning our planet. If we don’t act, who’s going to?”

Of course, Monsanto countered that its seeds enhance agriculture by helping farmers produce more from their land while conserving resources such as energy and water, according to AP.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate this week killed a bill that would have allowed states to require labeling of GM products.

“ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease.” yes they do make these things up to push drugs

 

Dr. Leon Eisenberg at the Julius Richmond 90th Birthday SymposiuThese were the words of Leon Eisenberg, the “scientific father of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder),” in his last interview before his death.

Leon Eisenberg made a luxurious living off of his “fictitious disease,” thanks to pharmaceutical sales. Coincidentally, he received the “Ruane Prize for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Research. He has been a leader in child psychiatry for more than 40 years through his work in pharmacological trials, research, teaching, and social policy and for his theories of autism and social medicine,” according to Psychiatric News.

Yes, it was even admitted that they are his THEORIES. The medical industry is using the guise of helping children to depersonalize and disconnect our children from a healthy, normal upbringing. Parents are placing their children on these drugs and subjecting them to what the world has to offer, when in fact all these children are looking for is their parents in hopes of being the blessing that God intended them to be.

H7N9 bird flu and swine flu can ‘combine and mutate’

  • scmp_29jan13_ns_professor5_nora1335a_33755643.jpg

The H7N9 bird flu virus may combine with the swine flu and mutate into a new virus strain, a University of Hong Kong research team warns.

The team’s study, reported by the South China Morning Post yesterday, confirmed that the bird flu could be transmitted through the air and suggested it might already be spreading among humans.

It is possible that this virus can evolve further to form the basis of a future pandemic threat

“It is possible that this virus can evolve further to form the basis of a future pandemic threat,” said Maria Zhu Huachen, an assistant professor of research at HKU’s school of public health.

The team, which officially announced their findings yesterday, discovered that both ferrets and pigs could contract H7N9.

Zhu said the more time sick chickens and pigs spent in close contact, the greater the likelihood of the two viruses – the bird flu and swine flu – combining and mutating into a new virus strain.

“A major intervention is to separate pigs and chickens in the market to minimise the risk of the virus spreading to the pig,” said HKU virologist Guan Yi.

The team found that, compared with the swine flu, H7N9 spread less easily between species and was also transmitted less efficiently.

The virus can spread from ferret to ferret or from pig to pig, but is inefficient in spreading from pigs to other mammals.

But the study also suggested that it was possible for a larger human population to have already contracted the disease – although the symptoms they suffered might be mild.

“As the virus can be spread among ferrets, it’s possible it can be transmitted among humans [too]. Ferrets are the best model for the study in human influenza as [they are] very similar to humans,” Zhu said.

Breaking News: China Destroys 3 US Shipments of GM Corn

Breaking News: China Destroys 3 US Shipments of GM Corn

Could the global tide in support of GMOs be turning? A new report reveals that the formerly pro-GMO Chinese government, one of the largest consumers of GMO food crops in the world, is beginning to crack down on GM corn shipments from the US that have not followed appropriate biosafety regulations.

According to a news brief released today by GMWatch.orgChina destroyed three shipments of GM corn imported from the US. GMWatch.org reported:

“The law says that the [Chinese] Ministry of Agriculture must require environmental and food safety tests to be carried out by Chinese institutions, in order to verify data provided by the seed developer. All these documents must be reviewed by the National Biosafety Committee before the MOA can issue a safety certificate. Yet these shipments of US corn did not have the relevant safety certificates and approval documents, according to the news reports below.”

The first two shipments are referenced on the website of the Zhuhai Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, confirming that two illegal GM corn shipments entered Wanzai Port in Zhuhai City on May 7th, and were subsequently destroyed:

Recently, during inspection and quarantine of imported food from USA by a certain company, the Wanzai Office of Zhuhai Inspection and Quarantine Bureau (in Guangdong Province in the south of China) detected two shipments containing GM corn products, which are not in compliance with China’s “Entry and Exit of Genetically Modified Products Inspection and Quarantine Management Approach“. The Office destroyed the two shipments of corn according to the provisions.*

The existence of a third shipment was confirmed in a May 19th article appearing on news.china.com.cn titled, “Harbin intercepted a total of 115 kgs of GM corn seeds, which will be destroyed“:

Recently, the Harbin Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau intercepted inbound mail of 21 cartons of corn seeds from USA, totaling 115 kgs, which were detected as GM seeds. This is the first time that the Heilongjiang Provincial Inspection and Quarantine System has intercepted inbound corn seeds containing GM ingredients. These corn seeds will be destroyed. *

Surprisingly, despite these seemingly drastic steps by Chinese authorities to destroy GM seeds, anarticle in China Daily from last year explains that the consumption of GM soybeans is already universal in China, even despite widespread public concerns that they have not been adequately safety tested:

Summary: Imported RR soybeans (Roundup herbicide resistant GM soybeans) has already accounted to over 80% of total consumption of soybeans in China, but the assessment and approval procedures for the initial imported GM soybeans, has been oppugned that it’s examination procedures exists with defects. According to news reports, on Feb. 20, 2012, Gu Xiu-lin and other three citizens upon application were approved to check the “certification documents for the GM soybeans obtaining safetycertificates”.

The China Daily article goes on to quote Shi Yan-quan, Deputy Director, Agricultural Finance and Education Dept., who stated on April 20, 2012, that over 50 million tons of GMO soybeans were imported to China in 2011 alone. The article also refers to the fact that for eight years, 1.3 billion Chinese consumers have been consuming Monsanto’s GM food crops, relying entirely on biotech-funded safety evaluations, without any independent safety testing carried out by the Chinese government. Additionally, a revealing study published in 2012 found that the Chinese print media is completely co-opted by biotech industry influence. They revealed that “48.1% of articles were largely supportive of the GM technology research and development programs and the adoption of GM cottons, while 51.9% of articles were neutral on the subject of GMOs. Risks associated with GMOs were mentioned in the newspaper articles, but none of the articles expressed negative tones in regards to GMOs.” The authors concluded: “Chinese print media is largely supportive of GMOs. It also indicates that the print media describes the Chinese government as actively pursuing national GMO research and development programs and the promotion of GM cotton usage.”

Are these latest incidents a sign that the Chinese government is beginning to take more seriously the health threats associated with the consumption of genetically modified food? According to the GMWatch.org report’s primary informant, who for purposes of anonymity goes by the pseudonym “Mr. Li”:

“[T]he new government’s decisive move to destroy the illegal GMOs “progressive, encouraging, and satisfying”. He regards it as a sign that it is keeping its promise to work for the people and the nation.

Mr Li said: “The deeply pro-GMO old government would not have made such a thing public. It would have secretly returned the shipments, or in most cases it would not even have inspected shipments that could contain GM ingredients.”
